    tongue OOTS #525 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    I'm hoping that, being Saturday, a midday comic post won't result in server outage. Apologies in advance if it does; I'll try rebooting the server.

    #526? Looks like 525...

    Anyways, before someone else says it:

    BOOT TO THE BUTT!

    A bit off on the numbers.

    Also, I love Roy's Archon's comment.
    Great comic.

    The server seems to be OK, but the typo in the thread title is going to be a nuisance when the actual #526 goes up.

    Getting to the actual comic: Wow, Eugene really is a jerk, isn't he?

    I have to wonder why Eugene thinks he's going to get into the Lawful Good afterlife once Xykon is destroyed. He doesn't act Good and has some rather Chaotic tendencies. He acts solely in his own self interest and verbally abuses his own son at every opportunity for no good reason. I'd say he's True Neutral at best, more like Neutral Evil sometimes.

    BOOT! Nice work! How didn't Roy see that coming though? Shouldn't he know by now that it's a bad plan to turn his back on his dad?

    I never thought of Roy coming down as a ghost...

    Roy's Archon saying he missed having feet implies he had feet at one point... Was he demoted for his attitude or somesuch?

    Heh heh. I'm really looking forward to the next strip now. It'll be funny to see Haley's reaction to Roy appearing.

    As mentioned above, he's going to have an interesting time trying to get into the Lawful Good afterlife, even if/when the Blood Oath of Vengeance is satisfied.

    Hahah! Now we're one giant foot closer to getting the party back together!

    And I wouldn't really say Eugene is acting Evil at all. Chaotic, yes, but not Evil. Maybe he should try the Neutral Good afterlife instead, but hey, not everybody can be Lawful.

    And I'm with Lira. Should be interesting to see Haley's reaction to Roy's appearance. Let's hope she doesn't think he's just another fragment of her personality trying to get in a jab at her...

    As already mentioned, his place in the LG afterlife is assured. You're judged based on what you did on life, not what you did on death.

    And Roy was asking for it, in my opinion. His dad isn't his personal spellcaster, to be ordered around like a slave.

    May I notice that Roy was taking pleasure in the suffering of others and being pretty arrogant? His priority is to be raised at all costs, despite Haley being in a very complicated situation. A kick to the butt is probably the only thing that could call him back to reality.

    And jerk or not, I'm really getting to like Eugene.

    Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Eugene has no idea how close he got to getting the boot from Celestia.

    HOW is he Lawful Good? Is this one of those things like in Baldur's Gate 2 where if Anomen doesn't get his knighthood he just completely changes personalities because the world didn't adjust itself to his personal taste?

    I'd totally play a prank like that on my son, if I had one, but I claim chaotic good and I'd mean it as a prank, not "because I'm a giant jerk and I hate my son".

    There's probably material there for a whole new rule book... "Spells you can only cast when you're dead"

    Eugene really is a selfish piece of work though. Unless it's all a clever ploy to nudge Roy along? I suppose no matter what happens, if it's positive he'll claim to be the sole responsible for success...
