    Ooh, nasty. I wondered what had happened to O-Chul.

    Upside-down, already unconscious from being hurled across the courtyard, shark, acid bath and spikes. But I think I'll put my monopoly money on escapes through Deus Ex Machina and lives happily ever after.

    woo! I was online when it updated!

    Great comic, although I cheated at the beginning, scrolling down because I was all "Ooooh! It might be O-chul!"

    For a comic about Dead or Alive, there's a surprising lack of bazongas. If you know what I mean.

    I'd assume this is Rich's way of saying it's his. I doubt he would take such a mean shot at anyone other than himself.

    And yeah, O-Chul is definitely NOT still paralyzed. His facial expression is different and his arms are tied behind his back. Not much need to tie someone's arms when they've been paralyzed for four months.

    If O-Chul can survive this, I'm expecting his Badass Quotient to rise 120%.

    Great use of your own work there. The acid-breathing template's my absolute favorite part of Dungeonscape.

    Oh, sweet. I almost jumped out of my skin to see an update -- and it's a TEAM EVIL update, and with O-chul!

    Actually my sympathy for a guy held captive by this bunch for weeks made me a little queasy and not really laughing at the antics going on around him. Oh and -- Xykon appears to have picked himself up a hobgoblin cleric and Redcloak is notably absent...

    Yeah...if you look really close, O-Chul has a ton of new scars all over his face and body. I bet they've been doing stuff like this to him for weeks.

    C'mon resistance, show us what you've got! :D

    Okay, maybe that's grasping at straws, but right now that's all O'Chul has going for him right now. Besides... I obviously want the MitD to win!

    Okay, this one boggles me a bit. How many times have they dropped him into the tank? Not to mention where do you get as acid breathing shark?

    I think they do a different thing with him each time. I also think his "Most Durable" designation is doing him lotsa good.

    My money is on Xykon's bet, the skeleton knows his gambles.

    I just wonder... WHERE THE HECK IS REDCLOAK? There's no way in Hades he'd miss this! A member of the brotherhood he's had decades to develope a frothing hatred for? He'd love every second of this!! He's have the TeeVo record it so he could watch again, and again, and AGAIN! This is what petty selfish revenge is all about. I'm surprised Redcloak didn't get the ring side seat with the popcorn!

    Assuming he just hasn't been re-frozen, you gottan give the bald paladin credit. He's not adding to their amusement by begging for mercy or screaming out in defiance: which Team Evil would love to enjoy hearing.

    But why not just use 'Dominate Person' on the smuck get the information out of him that way? Or kill him and use Speak with Dead where he won't have a choice in what he tells them? I know they're doing this primarly for their own amusement, but still!

    Poor O'Chul!

    Though the big question is.... how did they get his clothes off him when he is all stiff? That would have been an icky and a tricky job.

    Proof that MITD is still underage too.
