    New comic is up.

    Any chance of having that sequence where Roy comments on his dad's reaction being done on T-shirts?
    Just saying I'd buy a copy!

    Nice to see you back, with episodes like this you have nothing to apologise for, for some of us you're singlehandedly giving d&d a good name instead of the mess thats been transpiring over certain decisions a certain company has been making...

    Sorry had to be said, even once a week is fine if it keeps you in good shape!

    And as for Eugene... well, I can't say I'm sorry for you...

    I guess the vow Roy made when he got his sword back wasn't binding.

    Boo-yah, Eugene!

    I heve SO been waiting for this!

    It really didn't seem probable to me that Roy would be held from entering the Celestial Realms in the first place. After all, it was Violet's great-granddaughter who fulfilled her oath, and we didn't seem any of her descendants held back, which would imply that the restrictions imposed by the blood oath are not inheritable.

    Wow... I hadn't expected this, really. Yes, the look on Eugene's face is great. Roy'll have a good time in Paradise. (Will we get pictures?)

    Still I hope he'll return to the world later.

    But if it doesn't effect descendants, then it doesn't give them the incentive to fulfill the Oath, which seems to be the main reason to get one in the first place.

    Anyway, great comic.

    Yes, but given Roy's experiences with it (he assumed that the Blood Oath would keep him out of the Celestial Realm based on what his father told him), it doesn't seem to exactly be common knowledge how the things work.

    Plus, it's a fantasy trope that you want to fulfill the oath your father / mother/ grandfather/ uncle/ third cousin twice removed made but never fulfilled on their own.

    It's the simple things in life you treasure.

    There are some things in life worth making a fuss over. This probably isn't one of them.

    Crap.

    As for getting rezzed, the only thing stopping it is Roy not wanting to return (I think).

    As brilliant as that is, I can't help but wonder whats happening to the rest of the order. Still, in your own time, Giant.

    And I'm curious about the rest of the conversation that was ended in the first panel.
    For the last time, it stands for Shadow of Darkness!
