    OMG OMG OMG! Holy ****. I - I can't believe it!!!

    EDIT: Now that I've calmed down a bit and recovered from the shock (which only took me four days to do :P), I can post an intelligent reply now.

    Yikes, over a hundred days. My guess is that it's just hard to notice time passing in the afterlife, not that time flows differently. Because if time flows differently, then the adventurer staying overnight in strip 487 would be taking months to sleep 'till morning in the afterlife. I can't wait to see what the OOTS is doing. I wonder if Roy will go talk to his Dad at the viewing area, and ask him for help in going down to talk to Haley, or to hijack a summoning spell :P. I guess the Order must be in deep **** if they haven't been able to raise Roy. I'm VERY anxious to see what happens next, it should be amazing. With strip 500 around the corner, it's bound to be a jaw dropping one that'll make me freak out more than this one did :D. Good job on this one, and it's a double strip too! Yay. ^_^

    So, yeah, guess raise dead is off the table. I guess this means that soon (after 500?) we'll be getting another long no-Roy stretch, following the rest of the order for at least 103 days,8 hours, 17 minutes and 9 seconds.

    So all those people who said the "Roy in the afterlife" scene was taking too long...

    Yes. Yes, it was.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    That about sums it up. Roy's been out of the loop, evidently. How the heck are they going to stop Xykon now? If the party hasn't gotten its act together enough to raise the dead, how the heck are they going to stop an epic-level lich?

    Nice unexpected twist, and a classic one at that. It appears we will have plenty of strips to see the adventures of the other groups.

    Is the time flow the same on both planes? Perhaps the lost time is due to differences in how you perceive things? Also, I like how the Giant answered the forum-ites about why Roy didn't have the sword.

    Wow, this keeps getting better and better with each comic. Now I can't wait for #500! (Like I could before) And a new plot complication too!

    Spoiler question:

    Does this mean it's gonna take more than Raise Dead to bring Roy back to the OOTS?
