    Default OOTS #259 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Remember, there will be no new OOTS on Friday or Monday. It will return next Wednesday. Happy holidays, everyone.

    Wait? Were Xycon and Redcloak just standing on that cliff that whole time? Overlooking the leigons? It doesn't seem that they moved from that spot..

    only two things to say
    1) lol
    2) merry christmas, even if you don't regonise it as anything else as another saterday.
    Horses have an even number of legs. Behind they have two legs, and in front they have fore legs. This makes six legs, which is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse. But the only number that is both even and odd is infinity. Therefore, horses have an infinite number of legs.

    Why did I never before notice that Goblins and Hobgoblins have three toes? I mean, other humanoids don´t...

    I thought this was another art upgrade, but I just re-checked, and they´ve been there since #1.

    I think I´m groving old. Or maybe I just need new glasses.

    Great comic although we should hope that Redcloak casts speak with dead.

    Not only does sacrificing minions solve any problem, it's just fun on its own merits.

    Happy Holidays, all. Hope everyone has a good time this weekend (including Rich). :)

    Although my mind is clouded with senseless rage at the prospect of two *additional* missed updates, I have decided Xykon is now my favourite character.

    I think (really think, Rich has never confirmed that) that the "three toes" represents "claws" instead of "feet". Else humans would only have one toe, instead of 5, the way they're drawn.

    I like the first frame the best.

    "okay, yes, they're there, they're waiting, are we really going out there?"

    Minions are shy!

    Or, you know, any other spin you want to put on it, really. The first frame is just great.
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    probably they went down, gave orders to mobilize, sent some minion (and a couple more just in case someone is killed) to warn the other legions to pack, and went back on the hill to check the progress.

    It is perfectly justified. Give orders and plan such mobilization is not something that can be done in five minutes.

    Or maybe things are in parallel. While the Order is busy looking at the exploding Inn and have their asses beaten by the overbearing self-righteous bitch, Xykon and Reddy have their personal exciting panorama...

    my definitive question however is...

    Where are the demon cockroaches ? I miss them.

    well i must say it is great that we get a whole weeks sent of by a comic that barely attains to the plot in anyway. I was worried Rich might leave us a cliffhanger.

    BTW the demon roaches are with the thing in the shadow, which could be anywhere right now, However we can deduce that it has been with Godblins

    Nice work done - holidays earned ;)

    We all simply love Xykon - even so he´s e e v i i l !

    Merry X-mas!

    PS: I think X and Redcloak just have come back to the cliff-thingy and not have stood there all the time

    Waaaa!!! Now I have to wait until next week for more OotSy goodness.

    I am a selfish bugger. ;D

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, Rich, and thanks for all the laughs! My wish for you next year is that you will have good health and great success. Now I must go get a subscription to Dragon.

    at least this time we know there isn't a comic coming on friday and monday, so we won't be frantically hitting the refresh button and desperately trying to avoid going into catatonic shock....not that I would do anything like that. ;)

    "Only if your attack roll exceeded her armor class."

    I love that line. Because it works on so many levels.
    What if Goblin 2 secretly has feelings for Haley, and his comment is a subtle jab that Goblin 1 has no chance? It's also such a good play on words, moreso because it was recently used in the forums about ten times to describe Julia. Ah, Rich. Master of subtlety.

    I'm sorry, but i didn't really like it. The last few comics were probably the best that Rich delivered ever, but i was hoping for more Linear Guild. And except for the final picture i didn't really have any good laughs. A few smiles perhaps, what is still way better then most web comics.
    In short, this wasn't a bad comic, just a bad OOTS comic

    But...but... wasn't he meant to be a recurring villian? he had a name! And he was totally going to betray Xykon for the love of Haley, and... and...
    oh well.

    I will admit that "Jim" was a dead throwaway from the start, but "Kodrog the Slayer" is obviously a character of some importance.
