Ok, so NOW will the other priests start caring about the vampire apocalypse that's been happening in their cathedral? Well, the earth priests cathedral, who've now all been killed and turned into vampires.
>>44561028 Any page where Xykon actually does something would be a good page. Hell, when's the last time we actually even fucking SAW Xykon?
Because seriously, I literally cannot remember. It was so long ago. How many years has it been? It's been just random side villains and stupid mooks and what have you for so long that I can't remember the main villain's last act any more.
Am I the only one who thinks that the rules of this summit are retarded and make no sense, other than to add DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA?
I mean, they just fucking watched a fighter duke it out with a giant vampire dwarf, and now they reveal that they've actually killed most of the people assembled there, but it's all "THERE IS LITERALLY NOTHING WE CAN DO BECAUSE TECHNICALLY"
If your fucking godly summit over the fate of the world gets fucked up ten different ways and infested by vampires, you should probably sort that shit out and reschedule. This is some bad writing, yo.
>>44561193 >Am I the only one who thinks that the rules of this summit are retarded and make no sense, other than to add DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA?
Yeah, it's an awkward parody of democracy. Except it's democracy where people can just sort of stand around as a vampire kills half the people present, threatens publically to rig a vote with murder and magic and the only guy actually trying to stab said vampire is abusing an equally vapid loophole to do so.
>>44561098 >>44561160 He and Redcloak teleported to outside Girard's pyramid right before it blew the fuck up.
Xykon wanted to kill the Order on the spot, the Monster in the Darkness talked him out of it because he recognized them as O-Chul's allies (and O-Chul is the Monster's BFF now), so Redcloak summoned a sand elemental to deal with them while Team Evil headed to the final dungeon.
>>44561193 >If your fucking godly summit over the fate of the world gets fucked up ten different ways and infested by vampires, you should probably sort that shit out and reschedule. This is some bad writing, yo. Divine laws very frequently work with bizarre loopholes and requirements.
LIke the only way to get people to stop having to sacrifice goats and to cut and suck baby dicks forever being to sacrifice yourself to yourself so you can forgive people (of which you are one now) of having an ancestor who ate a magic pomegranate.

That's an awfully convoluted chain of requirements to hop through for a supposedly omnipotent being.
>>44562227 Yep. also, I think its likely that the rules of the Godsmoot was set up PURPOSEFULLY to allow for killing godless priests... because they're a huge threat to their system. They basically illegally download spells. Things aren't working out how they intended, though.
>>44562227 Look, when you're trying to tell people you're all-powerful and all-knowing and shit, just straight up telling them that you suddenly changed your mind on something you cursed them with for who knows how long isn't exactly encouraging. You gotta make them feel like it was their efforts and ideas that got them out of the doghouse.
>>44562627 Rich is pretty big on pottery. He uses the parallel development as a narrative device a lot.
Last we saw Hilgaya, Durkon told her that she's retarded because he's actually exiled while she ran away from an arranged marriage, and she ran away crying. It would be poetic if she actually went back to her husband who would be incidentally one of the dwarven kings, and ran into Durkon who got fucked for all his victim complex and bottled up spite. She's too much of a Chekov's gun not to use her at this point.
Same reason why I kind of expect Belkar to die and meet Miko in the TN afterlife.
>>44562227 >That's an awfully convoluted chain of requirements to hop through for a supposedly omnipotent being. When your literally all powerful, both the convoluted method and the simple method are equally difficult and convenient. So you choose the method that's the more fun.
It's like playing Dwarf Fort. You could make a perfectly defensible, self-sufficient and safe fortress damn near anywhere if you're sensible. Or, you could build a madhouse with criss-crossing lava pathways, controlled by a series of floodgates and pump houses, controlled by thirty unlabeled levers.
Assuming this isn't bait, "pottery" (a mispelling of poetry) is a term used, either seriously or sarcastically depending on context, to refer to thematic parallels, mirrored character arcs or plots, and other moments when you realise something about how carefully plotted a piece of work is.
For example, in ASoIaF, in the latter books both Jaime and Barristan begin to reconsider their own lives and choices, and in doing so make frequent references to the other's deeds and attitudes. That's pottery.

I knew what they meant from the context; I just hadn't seen "pottery" used in place of "poetry" before. I'm guessing it's a George Lucas reference.
It wasn't bait at all and I appreciate you giving me a sincere answer. Thank you.
>>44564987 In Hellsing he, as Dracula, was originally defeated utterly by a small group of humans and only became as super overpowered after Hellsing experimented on him to create the ultimate vampire to serve his family line.
>>44565116 The Alucard at the end of the series is far weaker since he had to kill all the souls inside himself to come back but on the flipside he now is actually immortal and can appear anywhere like Schrodinger due to becoming like his nature.
>>44565357 You know, the Dwarven Council is also very likely to be heavily defended, being the seat of power for the northern tribes and all. Two vampires vs possibly Dwarf Fortress OCD levels of Defense. Sounds Fun.
>>44565588 Van Hellsing was a complete badass.To put things in perspective lets look at the only other time Alucard was beaten and what exactly it took to do it.
>50 years of planning >The invasion and complete destruction of one of the biggest cities in the world >Taking over an aircraft carrier to trick him into being stranded in the ocean so he couldn't stop said invasion >1000 elite nazi vampire soldiers >An entire crusade >Most of the Iscariot organization >The church's top agent imbued with the power of god from one of the most holy artifacts in the world >One of the worlds top vampire hunters in his prime >The complete and utter bullshit that is Schrodinger
As far as we know Van Hellsing didn't have nearly as many resources and he still beat Alucard more severely that the Major did.
>>44567195 Well, how could you not? >>44567554 I'm just hoping they tackle 6&7 together, this is were the series starts running out of budget and adds cinematic panning shoots of people talking dramatically.
>"Haha! I'm a vampire! I'll destroy the world based on paperwork and poorly worded technicalities! >one month until the next update "But oh! You forgot to fill out this form! red tape saves the world again! >one month until the next update >"Hah! Yet more technicalities make my destruction of the world imminent!" >two months until the next update
Fucking jesus christ, this is supposed to be the climatic point in your comic! Either put more substance into your updates, or fucking shit out one a day! As it is, you have to wait aeons for even a small bit of overly complicated advancement, which is instantly made irrelevant by the next fucking comic page of fake world pencil pushing! Do something, anything, please just move the damn pace along!
>>44569137 You think richie can render all those stick figures who will be obsolete in 5 strips tops with detailed frames and +30 facial expressions easily with his broken fingers? j-just be patient, I swear it will flow a lot better in the book.
>>44560988 So hey, if Roy just killed the new high priest, he'd win would he not?
Given how strong his sword is against undead, and how their second strongest dwarf almost lost to a bunch of animals, he could likely kill every other vampire when they teleported then wmake Hel lose, since he's still, technically, the bodyguard of Hel's priest.
>>44570581 He destroys one high cleric, and the next vampire cleric of Hel becomes high cleric. Then Roy destroys the next, and the next one becomes high cleric. This can go on and on and on. And there's a possibility that one of them might simply decide to stay glued on the ceiling and wait it out.
>>44571022 Belkar could really do with some, and he specialises in killing hordes over duelling - depending on how good the vamps are (if they're made the same way Durk was originally then they might be a bit dumb) I think Belkar will get quite a lot out of this, assuming he can handle the Goliath without getting too fucked up.
But the dwarves were made by the gods to be actual people, and the dwarves have gods who would go to bat for them and be ok with a demigod who will obviously be allied with them ascending.
The Dark One on the other hand was created on accident to represent a race which was created to be exp sponges. He has no real allies, but they can't just snuff him out, they don't have to involve him in anything however.
>>44576307 >"Redcloak, was that a Vampire Dwarf Cleric?" >"Yes, I believe it was." >"Redcloak, I want to go murder more Vampire Clerics." >"Xykon no we need the gate now" >"But Vampire Clerics make funny noises when they screw up and forget I'm undead too!"
And once again, the day was saved, thanks to a crazy lich who has too much fun killing things.
>>44567195 alucard actually loves humanity for all its flaws and hates those that forsake it for power. seras is an arch atypical human. not very strong, not very bright but has immense determination and resolve. he turned her because he liked her
>>44564892 Malek was interesting, Durkula is only interesting in reference to Durkon's failures and the Roy fight.
I still don't really care for this whole "turning into a vampire unseats you from your body and a different entity takes control" nonsense, it somewhat undermines Malek's character from being a liberated lizard wizard to being Nergal's brain pet thing that probably spent a week watching the exciting memories of a lizard man's entire life of rolling in mud, shitting pellets in water and that one really cool time he left his mouth open and a bird flew in for the fuck of it.
I assume this is just how Burlew chose to handle Durkon's religious challenge of dying in combat vs dying of a disease, but I don't feel like there was a real build up for the religious aspect of this arc. His father died in combat to a fire troll and is probably in Valhalla with his wife's arm for company. Durkon is entirely healthy and has really never faced the prospect of his death, only knowing he would die eventually on good terms with his homeland. Even the idea that evil vampire durkon was perfectly made for this task by Durkon is kind of silly since all you really needed were any three vampires at all: one to vote and two to rig the votes.
>>44584142 >As long as the vampires behave, it's not allowed to really attack them. Not exactly, there's literally no rules against attacking them or not attacking them. Hence why Durkon was able to kill them all without breaking any rules. By the same token the clerics can all just blast them with impunity since they're not god worshipers and therefore technically not part of the god moot.
>>44585667 They're now all part of the Hel Hierarchy, not godless priests anymore who don't have anyone intervening for them. That's why Durkula attacked and vampified them in the first place. They had nobody to speak for them. Now they all do, as minions of the queen of the underworld.
>>44585745 Doesn't matter, only one High Priest and Two Bodyguards are allowed as per the rules. Now either all vampires but One High Priest and One Vampire bodyguard leave(Roy is using the second Bodyguard slot), or they get removed by force.
I imagine that task would fall to the Exarchs as I state before, but without them there? Are all the priest going to start taking sides and make a second miniSnarl? or are the extra vampires going to remain in their former capacity as exarchs and start "converting" to Hel as Roy climbs up the "Hel-archy"?
