Hey!
I'm stepping out for a concert for two days, and two full new update?

Wow!

Storywise not much to comment from my side.

Spoiler: show
That bit about her worship in the previous world is an interesting bit of context. We knew there was a previous world, the one the Snarl destroyed, but this is perhaps the most information we've ever had about it previously.

I'm unclear on why Thrym says Hel "never deserved" the worship she apparently enjoyed in that previous reality. Wonder what the backstory is there.

Hel isn't exactly a benevolent goddess.
Or very amicable.
Or kind to her followers.

She isn't exactly someone advertising her good sides to get fans....

Yes, but why would Thrym be the one pointing that out? He likes her and wants to get back on her good side.


Anyway,

Hmmm, interesting reason for static on the line....

But then, Greenhilt is expecting many kinds of traps from this Dwarf, andd he knows the Dwarf knows he'll be coming after him.

Durkon did seem to have an "idea" earlier in the comic, concerning how the vampire can't see "relations" between events..? If I remember correctly. Curious to see how he'll end up abusing that little tidbit

OotS, one of my fav comic books.

Do you think it is going to end "soon"? After dealing with current crisis and going to Arctic Gate, I assume there is going be a final showdown there between team good vs team evil.

What do you think will be the end game?

IIRC, there's supposed to be 2 or 3 years worth of content yet to come. The story is definitely winding down, but I don't think it's terribly close to the end yet.

Also, update:

1087 - Masters Mastering Mastery

Spoiler: show
Only OOTS puts this kind of effort into supporting characters for a sub-villain! I love it.

1089 - Scents and Cents Ability

Spoiler: show
The undead should totally have to make a horror check when they encounter a living creature at close range. Particularly "inside of skull" close. :cheer:

I'll quote Belkar here: "You're not missing much."

and he did get all of it, every spell thrown at him, and the trap which got identified beforehand.

OOTS 1096 - Brewmaster's Tale

This is a very un-comedic "punchline" to end the current strip on. It feels like a "growing up" moment for the comic, which is odd since the comic "grew up" a long time ago.

1097 God Forsaken

Talk about Lawful. He doesn't tell the new high priest, because he's sworn to secrecy? Also, short sighted on the part of the old high priest.
