Order of the Stick

Re: Order of the Stick

 

Is it weird that I want to salute a stick figure?
If so, I'll stand with you in weirdness.

 

Mr. Burlew has an uncanny knack for making me care about stick figures.

 

"Hey Roy! Wanna play blocks?"

 

"More than anything."

Me three.

 

The best artwork in the world won't overcome badly written characters & plots. However, the converse is clearly true.

I can probably agree. I guess a minimalist painting considting of a single black dot on a large white canvas can be well or poorly done. ;)

Poor magic cockroach!

 

It's an outsider cockroach, it was banished by its death more than truly killed. All you need is roach motel in an upside down pentagram, and voila...he's back

O-Chul's has been mentioned as having a massive CON score and the highest HP total in the Saphire Guard. Then throw in his Paladin save bonus. Any spell with a FORT save is risky cast on him, unless you're much higher level.

But will V be grateful for this rescue/probable sacrifice?

 

I'm thinking that one of the possible courses of action for O'Chul is to actually kill V.

 

- He has no real chance against Xykon

- The teleport restrictions mean no backup for V

 

Killing V should be pretty easy at this point, she's bound to have lost a lot of HP. It spares her the tortures that she would undoubtedly be subjected to, and wouldn't be able to stand up to them as well as O'Chul has. With V dead, hercompanions could True Res. her and get her back into action.

 

Of course, O'Chul isn't aware of the contract.

Go O-Chul!

 

And judging by those tactics, O-Chul's INT score ain't half bad either. Of course, he's had a long time to think of just how to take a certain goblin out.

 

 

Anyone else think that IF O-Chul lives and escapes, he and Red Cloak will have a true nemesis in each other that Rich could milk for all he's worth? Both would have every reason to be an implacable foe to the other.

So how many people thing that this could be the end of Xykon?

 

 

Isn't that amulet that he got from Red Cloak the item in which Xykon's own soul is stored? If it is destroyed by O-Chul what happens to Xykon?

Unfortunately, not me. Dramatically, he has to fail.

Nothing immediately; he can remake it. If Xykon is destroyed while the amulet is destroyed, he'll be destroyed for good, though.

Still Xykon took a beating from V before the battle ended and I didn't see Red Cloak or anyone else do much to heal him. If O-Chul gets the drop on him he just might do the job or at least force him to flee so that O-Chul and V can possibly make an escape of some sort.
