    redcloak sounds remotely accurate, but I smell a revolt.

    It looks as thougn RC made a tiny miscalculation (the fact that O'Chul couldn't help him seems to have been a major part of the problem, and the fact that it was RC who was threatening to kill them didn't help his case).

    Wow, Good End. And yet, the comic leaves you wondering whether O-Chul does know something afterall. Still, it was the most perilous game of Chicken ever played in history.

    I suspect we'll see nothing of this revolt just yet. A panel like that is just begging to be cut off and focus on somebody else, maybe Elan or Roy. Still, Chekov's Gun, Ammunition and instruction manual have been left on the table, and Chekov's Psychotic maniac will pick it up at some stage.

    That was nice, especially the last panel.

    I think Redcloak needs a hug...

    Nice to see he didn't send those people to oblivion; I always thought Redcloak had a heart. It might be very crabby, pent up with unending rage against the unfair universe and completely covered in emotional scar tissue, but it's still there.

    Yesssss.... Last panel FTW!!

    Redcloak has very badly miscalculated how humans react, and has shown that he doesn't understand at all the way paladins think and behave. He is filtering everything through his own mind and experiences.

    But, after all... To Redcloak, humans are an alien species ;)

    This is going to bite him SO hard in the butt...!

    Well if Redcloak is going to grow a mustache and twirl it on the end like a classic villain, I'm sure those lightning powered trains will come in handy when he needs to tie a damsel to the tracks.

    I can't help but think that secretly he's enjoying these spats with O'chul.

    Redcloak in moral outrage? He's going to wind up so far in the Lawful bit of the Lawful Evil corner that he'll turn against Xykon and the chaotic faction in his side. I'm thinking sooner, rather than later.

    I'm sure there is an alchemist potion for that. Alternatively he could find a human with one, cut it off and glue it on himself.

    More importantly, how long will it take for someone to make an avatar of it?

    I like it that Redcloak is totally wrong here. There's nothing worse than a major villain being all-knowing and always right. So kudos!

    For a moment, I thought there was a math error (8 * 2 = 16, not 14), but then I realized the control group only has 6. Seriously, though, I'd expect Redcloak to have controlled the conditions better.

    It was cute, though. A bit long on panels for some, but it's nice to see that Redcloack did not do it and that O'Chul stood.

    I'm still wondering where the seemingly useless 12 gods are, though...

    Yeah, and we ccould add that cliche where the hero just stops the train so that it is one inch from the damsels face.

    Maybe we could see the sidekick fall under the train while the hero reaches out saying "No... (sidekick's name), no, no, this isn't happening, nooooooooo!"

    rosebud raises a good question: I'm sure it hasn't escaped the Twelve God's attention that not only has the capital of their worshippers' domain fallen goblins, but a rift which allows access to the greatest single threat in the multiverse has expanded rapidly. I can't help but wonder why the Gods haven't stepped in on this matter?

    Just when I thought Redcloak was rational, even if a little cowardly (see Start of Darkness), he ignores 3 months of evidence that O'Chul knows nothing. Sometimes, one has to consider that a plan of action is a dud. Worse, even if O'Chul does know something, he has to willingly let Azurite citizens die rather than give information to the likes of Redcloak or Xykon. Whatever they want to do with the other gates, it's clearly going to be epic level, new Dark Age evil. O'Chul would be seeing the fate of all beings, not just his city. Although the ordinary citizens don't know about the gates, they're mostly Good alignment and won't want information given to Team Evil so they can conquer and enslave more people, even to save their own skins. Alas, is seems Redcloak is guilty of tribalism and can't see this. For a high level cleric, he's not very enlightened.

    Ah, yes! A return to the Redcloak we know and love! To be honest, I don't think I could have kept liking him if he threw those people into the rift. I like the conflict that exists in Redcloak, he's a much deeper villain than Xykon.

    I was really hoping that Redcloak wouldn't throw anyone in at all, it seemed a little dark for him, and he's evil... Yay for people not dying.

    Now all poor old O-chul jas to face now is whatever sort of Undead gladiator thingy that has been cooked up to fight him.
