    Nice. Lots of good references there. I love American Gladiators, and that IS a lot of spandex. Nice touch on Redcloak being the practical one. Also on avoiding the behind-your-back gag.

    Trust the roaches to have a nice buffer of bad jokes to use on this occasion!

    Love it, though I reckon Redcloak making a mistake trying to pull the wool over Xykons eyes.....his eye sockets, anyway.

    Most despicable act, indeed!

    ... The miniature of her certainly makes her look older, but personally I like young Erandis both on the basis that the purge of the line started before she could grow into her full powers, and also because it lets her and Jaela have a vicious catfight sometime.

    Maybe I'm playing a wrong game.

    And here we thought a Redcloak had gone insane. It makes much more sense now.

    It's kind of sad that he's been torturing O'Chul for nothing for a long time, but I still like Redcloak. His reasoning was rather sound - this makes up for a lot of inefficiency.

    "I have a bridge to Teribithia I can sell you." Aww... Redcloak is well read.

    I have to agree - "Reanimated Gladiators" is a new depth of depravity.

    Actually, this implies that the whole exchange in the last few strips, the bluffing and the sacrifice and all that, was completely meaningless. It was all just a show. Such a shame . . .

    I wonder, was the roaches' comments about there being 9 sides just a joke, or an accurate count?
    This strip certainly lends weight to the 'Redcloak was bluffing' theory, if he wasn't actually trying to get information out of O-Chul, just keeping up appearances for the sake of the new Goblin nation he's established ("Less reliable than a dwarf's sobriety" - brilliant).
    Also, silver spandex?! What happened to style, Xykon?

    And once again, the meta-knowledge of the cockroaches proves to be far superior to the intelligence of the rest of Team Evil... not that anyone's listening to them...

    Don't forget the various Azure City rebel factions. That's at least three right there.

    Only one; they've been unified now.

    And I think Redcloak's point is that "Redcloak and the goblins" is a separate side from "Xykon", they're just allied at this point in time.

    I don't see how. Redcloak may have been exaggerating his position, but O-Chul's reaction to it was honest and legitimate. This comic doesn't make O-Chul any less of a hero.

    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Listening Redcloak, "Team Evil" is to be split. "Undead psychotic Team Evil" and "Greenskinned Leader of hobgoblin Nation Evil United". They just league together.

    Redcloak is so cunning it's almost a shame he's on team evil.

    Btw, what bridge is that?

    That's an improvement: Redcloak does think and uses evidence. He's wasted in the clergy.

    'The Bridge to Terabithia' is a pretty well-known book about an imaginary fantasy land :D

    Anyway, excellent chapter - was the reference to his complexion a jab at the fact his colour was a bit off before you fixed it? *remembers mention of something like that in previous thread*

    It's funny. There were no real "Laugh Out Loud" moments in that strip, yet it is undoubtedly one of my all-time favorites. Of course Redcloak has long been one of my most loved OotS characters, so maybe that's why.

    Anyway, this was great. I loved getting a glimpse into the history between Redcloak and Xykon, as well as the reveal of the number of "sides" in the conflict. Good, interest piquing stuff!
    For another fantasy webcomic with Dungeons and Dragons, read Heroes of Lesser Earth now, before it becomes cool and everyone starts doing it!
