EPIC REVEAL!! i'm just excited and i have to state so. Forgath looks like a badass, and I'm betting he has some cool new special abilities to go along with his kilk form, as well as some interesting negatives and positives that will come into play in the story. as usual Thunt gives us a hint as to where to story is going, but keeps us on our toes about how exactly it plays out. Good stuff.

Nah, Warforged originated in 3rd edition.

But, with his metalic body and flaming beard he reminds me of Odyn from Warcraft.

Again beautiful colours, not too sure about the new Forgarth, I'm pleased he has his identity unchanged though. The beard, now I can hear MinMax decrying that as being very gay (in the manner of one with no idea what being gay is, but that it is an insulting / loaded term.

He was put together with patches from multiple Kliks. He died in the Klik manner (no -10) and was brought back by multiple Kliks. (I'm not sure why Salt's involvement is an issue. Just that Salt is too young and inexperienced?) He's now a biped composed entirely of merged Klik pieces. A blend of their attributes. He's a Klok. With the mind of a dwarf and an invulnerable magical beard from the Maze of Many.

Assuming you mean some of it burning off having an effect on Klokgath? Shouldn't do. Ward said earlier they can do it from the smallest amount of sand left over.

Why do I get the feeling this is going to end badly for everyone... that Klokgath will turn evil, because Salt's connection turned him into something bad... a Junior/Forgath cross would be a dangerous thing indeed, since it's partially invulnerable thanks to the beard...

Nope, since I posted first in this thread, I wanted to avoid spoilers,
What kind of damage has bee;done to Forgath?
Will he become a deranged Klik?
Someone proposed Forgath is a Klok now (which I don't believe, for that the single parts must've been Kliks to start with, and they were not).
His mind? His body?

Well, I'll be staying tuned to find out sometime towards the end of this decade....

He recognizes idle and had human eyes so I think he's ok. No killer klik, no kore from the past

I'm sure there will be consequences for Salt's involvement in Forgath's reinklikation for either or both of Forgath and Salt, but what exactly they will prove to be remains to be seen. Probably his inexperience is the issue, as it was with the inadvertent creation of Junior, but quite possibly the creation of a warped klik is not the only possible consequence of inexperience. We shall see.

Hmm, what does a warped Klok do? More damage than a warped Klik? Will he even be stoppable?

I also wonder if the speech bubbles of Forgath not being elliptical but rectangular has a meaning....

This. 100% this.

I think it's a bit wierd he got to keep his gear (boots, armor, rock glove) instead of being wholly "reborn".

Hey, made an account to ask this.

When Tarol tweeted this back in sept 2018: https://twitter.com/Thunt_Goblins/statu ... 8485565440 I thought that he was talking about the end of the idle+bowst+forgath arch. But since now it seems we got the last page of the arch and the point of view will change... does this means that we will see more of these characters? I am confused. Maybe Tarol was talking about the "forgath+klik parts" arch? Since that is the only thing that got solved in the last pages?

He said the story arch started 3 (now 4) years ago, thats when Idle and Bowst were introduced. Has their arch ended and we wont see more of them? What?

Regarding the new Forgath, I think its really cool and an improvement on the last design. I just hope I hadnt got it spoiled from his twitter feed some weeks ago.

Well, that's because it seems like there's nothing biological left about Forgath now, and that his mind has been transplanted into a Klok-like amalgation of Klik-parts and other non-biological material.

Welcome, Luv. I believe he meant the story arc involving Forgath's death and rebirth. I'm sure we'll see more of them later. But we'll be switching over to someone else for a while now to pick up a different story thread.

He wasn't wearing armor when he died. Just pants, boots, and the rock glove that's fused with his arm. He lost his pants in the resurrection. So does that make this panel full frontal nudity?

If anything I say offends you I am sorry. It is likely late and I am tired, or I'm upset and I am not thinking straight, and though I sincerely wish I could, I can't express myself in such a way that helps you be less of a crybaby.
