    I wonder if that Avatar of Law and Good will accept Elan's plea of Not Guilty Due to Diminished Mental Capacity.

    Ironically, because no one in the group both a) intended to push the self-destruct rune and b) had the intellect and awareness necessary to recognize the consequences of pushing the self-destruct rune, they are all responsible but no one is guilty.

    Let's hope sentencing takes this into account. (Community service, anyone?)
    Alignments are objective. Right and wrong are not.
    Good: Will act to prevent harm to others even at personal cost.
    Evil: Will seek personal benefit even if it causes harm to others.
    Law: General, universal, and consistent trump specific, local, and inconsistent.
    Chaos: Specific, local, and inconsistent trump general, universal, and consistent.

    I love how Roy almost word for word addresses the whole forum discussion on Shojo's right to arrest them. Shojo is the Giant saying "it's my comic deal with it" ;D

    Aha! The cat is the masterind here!.

    What community service? sending them to guard the other gates until even V is dust? They destroyed one of the cornerstones of the universe they deserve to get punished one way or another...

    Great comic anyway.

    Wait, does this mean they have the same pantheon in the southern lands as the rest of the world we've seen so far? Until now I assumed they have different gods, not the Norse ones we've seen so far

    We don't know that anyone outside the southern lands worships these Gods. The Gods just don't care.

    I love this comic, and i'm glad that it is in the main unpredictable.

    Mostly I love that it's funny & amusing pretty much every time.

    Wonderful job, Giant. as always.
