OOTS thread, because new chapter is out.
Not muc happens, but I guess this part is over for now.
Breaking the staff stops it being a magic item. They can fix the staff but can't fix the magic it had on it before. If the staff were an artifact, it would have violently exploded, destroying the mountaintop and everyone on it.
They don't really have one. They basically just got forced into a new quest they don't have time for but they can't ignore.
Their only option is to hunt down and destroy Durkula asap.
The Dark One isn't part of the Northern Pantheon, and he likely would have voted for Destruction if he'd been there. He'd get all of the souls of the Goblins which would increase his power and also be able to help design the new world so Goblins aren't as screwed.
If he's not part of the northern Pantheon, that's even worse... he gets to be a pantheon of his own, effectively making the vote 2:1 without the northern tiebreaker's tiebreaker's tiebreaker.
Though he may be committed enough to Redcloak and the plan to vote to save the world, and give Gobbotopia the chance/force the concessions he's been after.
besides even if he gets his say in the next world, its still him vs a million gods that don't care or actively want gobbo's to be the low rung race
sure he might be able to improve some things but all it takes is for a single god to come before him to decide gobbo's only get shit tier land and that's that.
His plan with the gates works he can change things a lot more effectively
He's not part of any Pantheon. There's only three major Pantheons the Elven Pantheon (which is incorporated into the Eastern Pantheon) and some unaffiliated Deities like the Dark One.
You underestimate how much having a Deity from the beginning will help the Goblins. Remember their entire race was originally created just to serve as XP fodder for the other God's Clerics. At the very least that wouldn't be the case in a new world. They'd be able to develop a civilization right from the start.
But yeah, if his blackmail scheme works it'll go better for him.
>You know Roy needs to make sure the vote fails, right?
Agh, who the fuck cares? We've been dicking around with irrelevant side plots for centuries. I bet all the gods in favor of destroying the world just want this shit to be done already.
>If he's not part of the northern Pantheon, that's even worse... he gets to be a pantheon of his own,
That's not how it works. You don't get a vote just by virtue of being a god, you get a vote only if the other voters allow you to have a vote.
The other gods don't care about the Dark One and aren't willing to consider it's opinion. That's one of the major conflicts. If the other gods did allow the Dark One a vote, Redcloak and the goblins would never have teamed up with Xyklon, none of the gates holding back the Snarl would have been broken, and there wouldn't actually be much of a story at all.
>mfw the magic from the broken staff is going to seek out the only open vessel for it
>mfw Belkar has probably already been vamped
HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS NIGGAS SHIT IS ABOUT TO GET WILD
If the world gets destroyed he would be relocated(along with the elven Gods) to one of the existing pantheons(might have to adopt an asian, assyrian or nordic persona. There was Orkus, but I think that's greco/roman) or he gets his own pantheon, but he has to share it with the other ascended Gods.
In 3.5, an artefact wouldn't explode. About the only one that does that is the staff of the magi, and that's only when the wielder breaks it with specific intent to make it explode.
I wonder why no one else never makes any serious edits that are devoid of dick jokes.
>I thought the backup plan was that the Dark One gets a fair voice in making the new world incase the Snarl busts out and kills everything
If the Dark One was present from the beginning of the new world, he'd have much more of a say in the way that new world operated and likely would have a vote in any further matters. Currently, though, the Dark One does not have a vote.

Either have the original Burlew tome or cut it down to breakfast cereal advertisement length; your "imperceptibly abridged" version is completely useless.
Oh hey, there's the new priestess of Hel's pre-vamped self.
Kinda sad to see her standing around all happy-like knowing that her soul is trapped inside her own body powerless to do anything to stop the vampire she's become.
Nah, not prophecy-twisting enough.
See: this comic called Happy Ending.
He's being a smart player, hurting the evil empire any way he can.
Anything to slow down the enemy, even if it doesn't make a huge difference.
Well, unless Durkula somehow learned Malak's Protection from Daylight custom spell, he can no longer renew it to remain safe from the sun, because I believe he was using it from the staff.
I feel like making jokes at its expense still doesn't justify that a huge part of how this plot arc is happening is because the rules and laws of this meeting were stupid.
Yeah, I thought about the vote issue too. I am not LG, so my immediate thought was: no priests, no votes. I kind of doubt Roy is going to kill them all, just to prevent the deaths of everyone else. Or will he?
That is the hope. Or at least take out more of the clerics voting yeah. It is a gamble. A fun, destructive, and entertaining gamble. Something this comic has not been doing lately. Being entertaining.
>If I die, BBEG scores. It is a problem.
The temple was built from the peak of a mountain by high-level elemental stoneshapers. Crashing the wooden airship into it will most likely trash the airship and nothing more. Even if it collapsed the building, that isn't guaranteed to kill some of the highest-level priests in the world (the high priest of each major god will almost inevitably be the highest-level among that god's worshipers).
Besides, it's way too risky even if crashing the airship was guaranteed to level the whole building. Unless you killed every single priest at the exact same moment, the first one to die (or, at the very least, the last one to die) would tip the voting scales to one side or the other. You'd be relying on sheer good luck that a/more Yes-voter(s) died. The absolute least likely to perish would be the Undead one, after all - and that's the most problematic.
Pretty good, but you could've been more precise with editing tools.
Despite the fact that you edit letters, this is great.
