As for The Oracle using sign language because he just knew, I would not mind it that much - forseeing events is exactly what any oracle is supposed to do. It can be done better or worse though. Some good examples came up a few times in Gaia webcomics, but linking particular pages would not do it justice, since the answer to how the characters can somewhat predict future is spread through the whole story.

    Another nice twist on this I can actually link (exactly the same mechanism was used in Continuum RPG).

    Maltak, I believe? But I dunno how long orcs live in this world, can they last more than 200 years?

    Wasnt there some sort of necromancy thing going on with them? Its been so long since I dug into that arc, but something tells me at least one of the orc groups was messing with long lived possibilities.

    Hell if I know. I binged that comic and then almost immediately purged it all from my mind. I barely remember anything about it.

    I do not remember, if they tried to extend their lives, but we know of at least one other necromancer that did (Rilian - I needed to look up his name actually).

    I think you are all asking the wrong question.

    In the Mookieverse, character motivation, goals, and personality are fragile, temporary and easily forgotten if the said character is needed to move the plot from point A to point B.
    So the question is not "who this orc is" or "what is he doing here", instead it is "what role is he here to fulfill".

    We have one page left, regardless of what the text is, I doubt it will be enough to move the plot in a significant way by itself.
    So my guess is that whoever he is, he is here to provide more information.
    Maybe he's an enemy, maybe a friend, maybe just someone who by complete accident knew DD 200 years ago. Doesn't really matter, the point is that I place my bet on a few updates of info-dump.

    I swear, a part of me thinks he saw the "epic twist" being spoiled on here and decided to get rid of the entire maltak tie in instead. Oh, and new headcannon, the orc is this settings slenderman. The more pages snout finds, the greater the danger grows!

    I don't think Mookie reads this thread. He has a tendency to label anything less than pure praise as "trolling" and then utterly ignore it. So, a thread that's so negative that there probably is some trolling going on? Not a chance.

    What do you know, I was wrong.

    And not only that, if the intention was to say "Poor Snout, you don't know what you are getting yourself into" without words, this is the first time in this comic that I see a proper use of art to replace missing speech.

    So yes, it's a blown up cliffhanger, but we're used to it already, and at least this one was done properly.

    Update

    So this is it?
    That's what all the fuss was about?

    I guess it can still be a coded message or something, but if I were Snout I'd be pretty disappointed at this point.

    This definitely sounds like the leaflet to a stage play or something. Maybe that's what this is after all? I mean, no actual scholarly work would just end on a base, overdramatic cliffhanger like that, right?

    As a scholarly work, they already lost me on page one with "it's been 200 years" instead of giving a date or at least a reference.

    Not sure if it's a real danger at all, and if any of them is actually the "bad guy".

    But generally speaking, this is what happens when you take the CW approach and not share information.

    I seem to remember that Snout's kind is actually extremely powerful and dangerous. Didn't they just cut those poachers into pieces?

    *Finds this thread for the first time* Ooh, Dominic Deegan, I read that. It went from a relatable near powerless oracle and his grumpy "death from above!" cat through a bunch of world building showing off to some sort of earth shattering magic shenanigans. So there's no telling where the new story is going to go, which is good. I'm not sure yet how I feel about the mute protagonist. Good way to change things up, but between the lack of words and the sketchy black and white art it doesn't leave that much to look at. I'm also not sure yet what all the shots of the nude dude with his **** in his hand and such add to the story.

    $20 says that this is not actually dangerous, and the orc didn't actually attack him. Mookie is going to "subvert" expectations by having this, instead, be some sort of magic induced dream sequence that tells Snout what he wants to know.

    I agree fully, it will turn out mr stink was the actual bad guy all along, using snout as an easy patsy to do all the dangerous leg work.
