Wow... I went to see what the OOTS community was saying, and this comic has shut the boards down because of the volume of traffic.

I fear though that the ghost-martyrs are the power for Soon...and when they are all killed (again) Soon will return to the higher planes.

Can Azure City be saved??

Is it just me or has the site been down for a while now?

Hmm, it is just me, the Brown wireless network wants nothing to do with it, but I can still get it on my phone. That's odd, I haven't run into any other sites that have failed to load.

Norton/Symantec blocks a LOT of sites (and portions of sites) that other antivirus programs pass.

And it didn't even flag that it had blocked the site (or portion). I think OotS, MindMistress, Hero were a few of the comics it blocked as well as most of MSNBC, CNN video, various Australian and European news site videos and slideshows, etc

There was a OotS group at Dragon*Con . . .

They had Thog, and Naked Elan, and Redcloak, and the thing under the umbrella . . .

It was glorious.

I didn't mind that strip so much, but I'm a bit unhappy with him threatening Elan today.

V's gender and sexuality have been deliberately left ambiguous. However V's explanation of Belkar's hate-or-lust categorization of his acquaintances gives strong hint she is female.
It ain't as if Belkar and Haley (or Roy) are known to be necessary to "prevent the End of the World" (her excuse for her relentless effort to find them). Which makes probable that her haggardness is due to her jonesing for her daily Belkar fix.

You know, when something like this happens in real D&D groups, it's usually a cue that one of the characters is about to die, one way or another.

Though Nale may have headed that off with his cluelessness.

I'm hoping this can be chalked up to V's lack of sleep.

What I got out of it was she wasn't really threatening him, just bluffing. That is supported by the fact that she just walked away.

Aspectre

V's gender is still up in the air. Any time a character gives V a gender, Rich has said that that is only that characters view of V's gender.

This likely comes from the fact that V has roomed with Haley, and therefore Belkar thinks of V as a female. It does not mean that V is a female.

I don't know dante, it didn't really work out for Raistlin either.

However V's step towards the way of the Majere however makes her ten times more awesome in my book, can she succeed where the Master of the Past and Present failed?

What I AM afraid of is her doing anything evil while in the gestalt, since its implied its not permanent, thus while as it is now the devils only get 3x (where x is time spent in the gestalt) time to do whatever with her soul, however if she loses control and say.... murders her family then shes condemned to the 9 Hells forever and not just for 3X.

Unless of course she finds a way to make the gestalt permanent then its all good.

Not at all. In a world in which evil is actually manifest and goes around drawing up contracts, evil is definitely not a relative thing. [Smile] Unless you mean that your relatives are evil, which is certainly possible.

I guess the evil would be all relative. Assuming she just slaughtered her family.


I'd be a little annoyed if V flat out switched to evil. The cards are stacked enough against the Stick; team evil doesn't need another ace up its sleeve.

Unfortunately, having explained a way V could accomplish his/her goals without the infernal bargain and assuring him/her multiple times that he/she is in control, the infernal threesome has very much set the stage for V's damnation. And the nature of the bargain as explained also seems to suggest that V's new powers won't be available when they're most needed. The latter, I suspect, may be V's last, best chance of turning from evil (out of a sort of spite.)

On the bright side, this could serve to be an excellent way to bring the team back together and solve about a half dozen plot problems all at once and bring it back down to just one or two.

One of those being V's dilemma.
