    Looks like Roy is not cutting back on his remarks...

    And definately not the explanation I expected: so if Eugene would have tried to defeat Xykon it would be no obstacle for entering the paradise that originally he swore that he would not rest in this life or any other until horrible vengeance was enacted on Xykon?

    That's the real "Golden Gate"! :D

    Oh, my, I like this comic :) For some reason, it really gets to me :)

    And it is a really, really, REALLY good telling-to to Eugene on the part of the deva. The man deserves it. I hope he learns something from it.

    And now I wonder... What do you use to tip cherubim? I doubt that they would accept earthly currency...

    Huh. Wouldn't have expected that it was STILL a matter of effort.



    Really lends a whole new weight to the question of "is Miko trying" in that other thread floating around.

    Yes !

    In your face Eugene Greenhilt ! That is what you get for shirking your duties ! Lawful good ? Better had been working ab it more on that lawful part.

    The downside of lawful ? lawful people can be judgemental. Sucks to be on the receiving end for a change, eh Eugene ?

    Nice one.

    Eugene is truly getting what was coming to him.

    May I vote for several Roy resurrections and deaths so that he may torment his father a few more times?


    Recently resurrected. Sorry for bailing on you guys.

    What if not all of Roy's deaths are in pursuit of the Oath? Do the celestials check each one? Or is Roy now off the hook, and can devote his life to something else?

    I wonder how much time has passed in the "real" world now? It would suck if Roy was just about to start having fun in the afterlife only to get dragged back.

    Going by the dialog, I'd surmise he is indeed off the hook. Though I suspect that he'll go after Xykon anyway.
