Wow, good job LSN! I just caught back up with the comic from over 2 years ago. Really enjoying it. "Kidney Pinchers" LOL.

My issue is that I kinda have a feeling this race operates under Always Chaotic Evil protocols.

So on the one thing, yeah, they're sorta alien-babies.

On the other, they're sorta-alien-babies-who-will-grow-up-to-eat-people.

If these things can only produce by using humans as hosts, good or evil doesn't even come into it, it's a matter of kill or be killed between two races biology has dictated can never play nice together. (Of course I get that Odi/the D&D universe may not be compatible with that kind of thinking, but think of the chestbursters from the Aliens movies being sapient...or I guess those Stargate aliens would be a better analogy.)

Anyway, cheerfully waiting to see where the time anomaly screw up comes in, and who's fault it's going to be. I can't quite figure out how the crab babies get transferred to some random other sea creature, but misplaced act of mercy seems like a possibility as far as motives go.

Obviously the next one is pufferfish.

....

They're a LOT more dangerous than crabs, ok?!

Saved from the bad guy by other bad guys. Rock on. Also cool to see someone actually fire one of those big rifles. :Ahappy: 26 damage average, so 6D6+6?

I also notice that the decapitation squad is using the famous "circular firing squad" method of execution whereby if any of them miss, they will hit the others. I guess with a decapitation squad, they're not even trying to capture Ardon any more, it's just pure murder and bring back his head at this point. Torrin's gonna be pissed.

The elder kidney floats. They're shooting up, little risk of that happening.

Psionic powers are no match for... someone slowly flying away? Can someone explain that to me?

And especially can someone explain how one kidney pincher was a boss encounter for the party, but a city full - including the kidney pincher god - are nothing special? (and in fact none of them have used any of their powers or attacks at all since the first encounter?)

As a general rule of thumb in fiction, a single enemy (especially if they have a name) will always be a greater threat than a dozen similar. theoretically, Roginald was also one of the best and the guy they surrendered to (who had different robes, a sure sign of power) would be too, while all the others are just slightly stronger than average (but not more competent) mooks. The fact that they're essentially a big joke probably helps.

Merry Christmas folks!

And I am really liking this new Odi. He's perfectly capable of doing things on his own, tagging along with Ardon all this time and letting him call the shots has just made him complacent.

This squad isn't after Ardon though, right? It's some Eladrin anti-technology strike force?

Ohhh...is that what the Eladrin are doing? I thought Ardon just called them to taunt them and they sent a strike squad to kill him. Apparently the fact that he even used a phone was evidence enough to send the anti-tech squad. That wasn't clear at all. I'm not a fan of comics pointing out everything explicitly and putting neon signs up for idiots, but I think we need a *bit* more hand-holding when it comes to the obscure plot points.

Oh OK I see...the tweet was "Look out of the actual explanation in just five short months! " which I didn't initially get, but it should have been "for the actual explanation" and it was making fun of exactly what I was talking about above. So it's all explained then. They don't even know that Ardon was the one that called.

I feel like if they were able to move past what happened to the orcs, a bunch of gross slave holding, weird medical experiment enthusiast crab monsters shouldn't even register. All their victims getting murdered too was the only thing worth getting worked up about here.

I think that in this instance Ardon probably did the right thing.

The right thing for the wrong reasons but still.

Ya got me.

But don't they still have that whole skill challenge thing with the elevator that was the reason they couldn't just leave in the first place?

No time crunch now so not quite the same, although they may just find another way out.

Well, to be honest, Schmoopy never actually gets fired. He just walks off the job as soon as they show up. Also in the last panel it says "You sounds like" but maybe that's just Terry's dialect grammar?
