    I was hoping Roy's grandfather would show up.

    The evil adventuring party? Not so much. But it was still awesome.

    One thing I'm confused about, though; how did the evil party's wizard/sorcerer get two separate gouges from Horace's single cut?

    HAHA, loved the evil adventuring party (and their very short existence in this comic). Nice work.

    Is it just me, or is the Drow missing her eyes when they come in?

    Ok. that was funny.
    it was more funny if was with them, but that would probably make a lot of plot problems.

    My correct prediction.


    I am currently working on a new (needless) OotS compilation, similar to this or this, pm me if you'd like to help.

    Thanks to Serpentine for the excellent avatar!

    I love the intricate block building.

    Awesome, this often what my evil parties always want to do when I DM. Plot? What plot? They're eeeeeevil. Nice to know random encounters still happen when you die though.

    Well I figured Roy's grandpa would show up at some point but I wasn't expecting the adventuring party. (I've read plenty of stories where the good adventurers go after evil mages and demons and whatnot on their own planes but never the other way around...)

    I love the nonchalant reaction, "It happens. C'mon, I"ll take you fishing." Guess they've got to rush and get all that grandpa/grandson bonding in since Roy won't be staying long.

    I'm curious to see if they'll talk about Eugene...

    Spoiler
    Show
    I've never thought about it before, but after that "I'm still surprised that he liked girls." comment I wonder if we're going to find out that Horace didn't have any respect for wizards and treated Eugene the same way Eugene now treats Roy...
    Google query for the Giant's posts, for those of us who think they're way more interesting than yet another speculation thread but don't have time to read every thread on the forum to find one he's posting in.

    More a very UNLUCKY adventuring party -- I mean they plane shift into a RANDOM part of the first level and have the bad luck to appear in front of a level 13 warrior, an archon, and what is probably an epic warrior from the third level of celestia...
