    O-Chul is the man. There is hope yet.
    The ends do not justify the means.
    Ask yourself, "What would a hero do?"
    or transversely,
    ask yourself, "What would the villain do?" and do the opposite!

    "I have that lampshade you requested"
    "Just hang it anywhere"
    PRICELESS, but I can't figure out which trope is being lampshaded...unless they are lampshading the trope of lampshading!

    We just got a confirmation that O-Chul knows nothing (and is seriously badass) and Redcloak is being way too stubborn for his own good.

    Hang in there, O-Chul. We're all pulling for you!

    Well, except for the die-hard Redcloak fans, who are probably yelling at their screens right now, 'cause that green-skinned, stubborn blob of Evil Cleric is seriously not thinking this through!

    Hehe, Redcloak is getting desperate. He needs to know what he will encounter before he goes, if only to justify why he stayed that long, but it seems he has no access to it. That must be irritating.

    Redcloak's colors went back to normal in panel 8...

    Is this confirmation he is, indeed, Lawful Evil? I mean not that there was much doubt, but he seems to be relating to O-Chul because of the Lawful aspect here.

    Also: Oh, Gods (between this comic and my love for GRRM I just know I'm going to wind up saying that phrase aloud and getting a LOT of weird looks) but I love O-Chul's rebuttal and then Redcloak's "..." [pause.] "I like the way I phrased it better." Whoa, PWNED by the Paladin! In a LOGIC contest, no less!

    LMFAO @ the lampshade hanging!

    Oh, and thanks for helping to both lampshade and hopefully dispel a lot of silly discussion from the past few days.

    Yes, O-Chul did lie. No, the paladins don't know about the other gates.

    Hey, we have psionics in the actual story and not just the kids book! Of course, it seems the "magic 8 ball" and fortune cookies are just as good in Redcloak's eyes.

    Nah, what's hilarious there is that Redcloak thinks the magic 8 ball and the fortune cookies are MORE USEFUL than the 18th level Incarnum user. :P

    And honestly, I think he might be right.

    They are lampshading the lampshading of the fact that it is true. Or something like that.

    GRAPHICAL ERROR DETECTED: In the 3rd row (I think) Redcloak's skin color is different than the other panels.

    That aside, I can get right onto the generic compliments and generic rooting for characters I like!

    I'm thinking it's some sort of effect comparable to a blush... whether it is Health related, or what, I don't know... but it would make a killer diversion thread. I'll have to start one, STAT! Conspiracy theories, AWAY!

    Actually, RC is too smart for his own good, he's overthinking the whole thing, refusing the accept the simple explanation. What Redcloak is doing is saying "If I was the head of the saphire guard, would I leave the other gates alone because of this oath, OR would I take steps to prevent reality from unraveling, oath or no oath." In that regard, he is correct, the leader of the sapphire guard DID think like that! That is exactally what Shojo's opinion was. What Redcloak is NOT considering is how stubbornly lawful the paladins are, he dosn't believe they could be stupid enough to risk existance for this oath.
