    I have started the thread while you are all refreshing the comic page! Muahahaha!
    Well, anyway: When it's updated, discuss it.

    Not updated yet - but the Home page has some news. The books might even have reached the UK by now, which is good. Now all I have to do is wait for the Post Office to get off their arses. >:(

    Thanks for the update Rich. Pity you could not send Xykon to 'zombify' the shipping agents. It might speed them up a little. :D
    Real Life? - so what is that then?

    I really don't know what to say about it. I like the order of xykon, I really do, but I want the stickites back sometime soon or at least the linear guild.

    And I feel sorry for the poor little critter in the dark.

    Great new strip. I love the Order of Xykon almost as much as the Order of the Stick, but it's nice to know that my favorite wizard will be back soon. :)

    The gl joke was a chuckle.

    Xykon has a mad bluff mod, so he was telling the truth about being a sorceror.

    Just for the record, while I enjoy Elan &amp; crew, I REALLY get a kick out of Redcloak et al.

    I immidiately thought of it as a Lammasu. That was my initial thought: &quot;Poor Lammasu!&quot; Then I realized the pun on those dungeons we've all created/crawled at one time or another that just contain every single evil creature imaginable, and it totally cracked me up.

    &quot;Please?? It's OK if it hurts, I don't mind!&quot;
    In our group, there's a psion who has an ability called Empathic Transfer: Hostile; it allows him to 'give' an enemy the wounds he's taken, healing the psion an equal amount, but he can only do as much damage as he's taken himself. It leads him to follow a warped kinda strategy, but it's refreshing to see a primary spellcaster who doesn't mind taking a couple hits. &quot;Hmm, only 24 pts? Guess I'll let him hit me one more time.&quot; ;D

    He's a lich/undead. They get mad Charisma. Plus the GM might give him a permanent circumstantial bonus on Bluff(or a penalty on opponent's Sense Motive), since it's hard to read emotions on a skull.

    Rich simply CAN NOT reveal the Shadow's true identity because the whole point of the joke is that (s)he's in the dark. Revealing him/her would not only take something away from the comic but would leave everybody disappointed. There isn't a monster that would well suit the roll that its needed for.

    That and besides as soon as he steps out of the darkness he'll be arrested. God damn copyright lawyers...
