    Default OOTS #300 - The Discussion Thread

    Well ,there you have it: the last comic for what will be the second book. These last two Xykon strips will be set as an "epilogue" after Roy's dramatic montage sequence to end the proper story. Hope you guys enjoyed it.

    I loved the Hobgoblin jokes

    But that last thing was utterly amazing, that would make a great wallpaper.

    What a return! He sure knows how to reappear in style. Nice! Hehe. It reminds me of the witch king in LotR a little bit, in a good way - I see LotR connections whever there's a hint of fantasy. (Just because you see or invent a "connection" between two good things doesn't mean anything negative.)

    Hehe, Redcloak is rising to the occasion and can be taken seriously? I'm afraid of him now. :-[ Mr. X has made a true villain out of him. ;) I guess they've been working together so long that it isn't so up-tight. Only natural in a basic typical day-to-day working relationship like this, eh...

    Well executed I say I say... looks great. Ta ta ra taa! Death! Pillage! Rape! War! Destruction! Famine! Murder! Et cetera!
    Just to celebrate #300, I've edited this post like 10-20 times. Tee hee!

    Final Edit: Just to make sure I wasn't accusing anybody of "borrowing" things - that would've been idiotic in this case!

    So what kind of dragon did that used to be? I busted out my copy of Draconimicon, but it didnt help much...

    When can we expect the second book to be available? Still by GenCon I hope?

    Wow, Redcloak's really gaining a spine, huh?

    Good to see that it's "the end of the story arc", which says to me "the end of Book 2 or 3". Yay, now let's see them books!

    And by the way, first page, yay and all that jazz. ;)

    The corpse gag was good, I thought maybe a rebuttle to use the corpses would have been appropriate, just my 2 cents. Otehr tan that I must say I like the flying dead dragon. If this is also on teh first page, Yeah

    The hobgoblin's shoulders in the first strip in every panel seem to be transparent. As well as every hogoblin's torso and shoulders in the second strip.

    Out from Truth's firey mirror,
    Smiles Joy at the scientist.
    She to the steep hill of Virtue
    Leads the suffering on the path.
    On the sunny peak of faith
    One can see her fluttering flags;
    She through the cracks of burst coffins
    In the angel's choir stands.

    Endure bravely, O you millions!
    Endure for a better world!

    Wow - *sniff* "My little" Redcloak finally grew up... ;)

    What about the selling & shipping of the 2nd book?
    Will it be available via amazon.com (then hopefully amazon.de too) ?

    Can´t wait to get my fingers on the next book - but this time with less trouble - PRETTY PLEASE?
    Hooray for magic Roaches!!!
    They´re most helpful - and quite tasty on toast...

    Too bad it's in the portrait layout, not landscape. Thus, the last panel makes a good poster but a bad wallpaper. However, I believe we can trick Rich into doing some fan service...

    If I remember correctly, they killed a silver on their way into the castle.

    Yep.... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 195, you can see a dead silver (or somewhat matte gray-ish?) dragon being poked by hobgoblins.

    And now this lucky silver is the winged mount for the BBEG who leads a fresh and powerful ARMY OF DARKNESS!
