    Great to get back the hob-gobin army. Poor crature in the shadows. He needs to get employed and badly. Still, where is the nefarious Xykon himself? :P

    Poor CitD, he's kind of like my Eberron bard. "Hey, guys, I can help, really! As long as we're fighting humanoids anyway..."
    "Don't worry, Ka'Sala, we'll hurt you...I mean, help you!"

    This totally reminds me of a halfling in my game who always complains that he is useless and can't contribute and accuses people of not allowing him to contribute... but when he has the chance, he vanishes off somewhere else and isn't around when he's really needed :P

    Good memories. Thanks Giant! :D

    That was really good! Kinda feels strange after the mounting tensions but it's logical. I missed the CitD.

    I am really, really sorry. :-[ Just bought On the Origin of PCs, and checked back and find out the comic was out, I was too excited. Will never do that again.

    Haha, CitD is as clueless as Elan... or more clueless, sice Elan CAN actually find something to do...

    even more proof that we have more than one "Stupid, but Evil" character in the OotSiverse.

    well done Giant, I'm happy to see us getting back to the bad guys.

    ...and away from the blueness of the Azure city ;D

    Over at 8-Bit Theater they take a very hard line on those obsessed with being the first post. Anyone that makes the first reply to a comic thread that has nothing to say about said comic gets a 3 day ban, I believe. I saw that happen a few times.

    "woot! First page" then the mod edits their post saying something like "don't make the mistake I did. Because I made a meaningless post just to be the first person to reply I am now banned for 3 days"

    I think it's a better idea to temporarily ban the person and leave his post as a reminder then to delete the post where no one notices the reprimand.

    Just a thought.

    Hmm. I like the monster under the umbrella, but it does seem a bit forced. I am a bit curious why the demon cockroaches didn't have a sarcastic retort in any of the last three panels. I'm just hoping that the lack of the crucial role being performed will become crucial later. =)

    I'm also curious if we'll get to see Kadrog the Slayer and Jim make a later appearance as zombie hobgoblins. :)

    Out of curiosity, is the missing corner of Redcloak's cape torn, or is it just flapping in the wind? (It switches sides during the strip, which is why it seems to just be flapping, but it does look a bit strange.)

    A coda is a passage of music that is part of a larger piece that is used to transition to the end of said piece.

    In the comic's context, the Demon Roaches are commenting that the end of the story arc is near.

    /w00t music skillz!!

    Viola!

    And with that, all the loose ends are tied up just before comic #300. And for that, we owe Memphis and their total dedication to a complete lack of customer service.

    Lousy simu-postin universe...

    Hobgoblin eyes? Ah, well.
