    Whoa. Who are they?!?!? OMG there's so much to speculate on for the next two months!

    I'm gonna say it's Roy's Archon and a long lost god of the Eastern Pantheon, given the colors of their speech bubbles.

    ...what?!

    I don't...

    Apparently there's one more whole side in play that we had no idea about?
    And what do they mean in the last panel?!

    Great cliffhanger.

    what can fly invisible and use poison dart?

    brilliant cliffhanger :)

    New characters and we don't have a clue who they are. But at least we know they aren't evil.

    My first assumption was that they are connected to the IFCC, but I wonder if it could be something else...

    That was my first idea too, probably because they have colored speech bubbles. But the IFCC don't seem to want to destroy the world, and while they could have plans that involve the current world and a lot of its inhabitants seizing to exist I don't think they employ anybody noble enough to voluntarily and inescapably die for that cause.

    They could easily be evil, they might just need some reason to want the paladins alive.

    I agree, great ending and enough to discuss for the meantime. I also thought about IFCC minions spontaneously.

    I don't think it's the IFCC. All fiendish characters so far have had some black in their speech bubbles, whether the text or the background.

    Especially since they talked about getting more involved. The orange speech bubbles look quite similar (albeit without any black in the newer speech bubble), but I wonder who the green is.

    Ooh. Could be! Serini and her henchman as oathspirits? Soon Kim also had color on color speech bubble, as did Girard Draketooth. I'm revising my earlier prediction of Roy's Archon and a god of the East. I like OOTScribble oathspirit, or maybe just invisible, but based on the last panel, I think oathspirit.

    Could still be IFCC’s agents, they’re known to employ non-fiendish assets.

    Is there anyone who's had that style of speech bubble before? Darker [color] text and outline on a lighter [same color] background?

    EDIT: Ninja'd, and someone answered (the oathspirits). I suppose I should have expected that.

    The IFCC did say that the Gods destroying the world would be doing their work for them, so I think they might want the world destroyed. So IFCC seems pretty likely. The colored speech bubbles had me wondering for a second if Tiamat could be involving her agents to get back at other gods, but that doesn't seem to tie in at all really.

    V was sending to Lien indeed.

    And Team Evil hasn't found the door yet. Good.

    Who are these people? The speech bubbles ring a bell. Notably the red-orange one.
    Could be agents of one of the gods who want to destroy the world for safety reason.

    I’m interested in where these two are going. The last panel with the wide view didn’t jump anything out at me, just lots of snow and Kraagor’s gate.

    Oh right: speech bubbles. Probably not Serini then, though these beings might be working for her.

    "[Existing was] fun while it lasted" doesn't necessarily mean that's the end of the world is what they want, might be simply what they expect at this point.

    The green bubble must be one of the Eastern gods, who secretly survived the snarl. The orange is Banjo the clown, ascended to godhood using orange quiddity.
