    It seems like the advanced Time Stop effect has spilled over onto the message board...

    Yes... how out of the question is our donating for more lines?

    On the comic, These are the same demons/fiends as in 380. So we know they do know about the Snarl, and Qarr didnít, up until now.

    It looks like the same guys Sabine was reporting to.

    Nice concept- demons, daemons (yugoloths) and devils, working together.

    Interesting. I hope V heard what the 3rd fiend said or demands some proof that what their giving it is useful.

    Oh-oh ...

    This is so going downhill for V's soul.

    I'm sure even if he will be able to save his/her beloved, (s)he will loose them by his/her own uncontrolled powers ...

    Hmm...I may be wrong, but isn't that the group of Fiends that Sabine was dealing with way back when she reported the existance of the Snarl to her overlords?

    Wow, nice.

    The IFCC directors are at least funny. Anyone wanna guess which is the diabolic, demonic and daemonic being? Also, I wonder the name for each of them (their cards are jumbled)

    EDIT: First page! I just registered.

    OK, I had to end lurkermode and register to beg: someone please do a "jokes you didn't get" for this strip.....I feel I missed a whole lot of references (about music business?) probably due to being a "dang furinner".
    Thanks for all the laughs!

    Aye that is odd. Usually posts come in much faster.

    So what does My Three Fiends reference?


    More importantly, who are they and what is their agenda.
    Deus Ex Machina - refers to the ending of Greek plays where an actor playing a Greek God is lowered onto the stage and solves all of the problems. It is not a problem solved by a Chekov's Gun, Skill, or Armory. It is not an @$$ pull or whatever solved the plot in all those twilight novels. it is not characters acting out of character, or a twist you don't like.

    Words have meanings. You can't just change meanings to suit yourself. Otherwise born carbon fligaments Xyeon palar.

    Is there a pun with the demon names?

    It feels like there should be somehow.

    Eh, taking the Demon/Devil thing another step further? I think the IFFC is a nice addition, making it so the blood war won't screw up the dang plot.

    This does, however bring up questions. V is a powerful PC whose destined to do something with the gates and the Snarl. The Gods know about the snarl. I'm assuming the Evil Gods are running the forces of evil and the Demons/Devils etc.

    The only evil god that we know wants to mess with the snarl is The Dark One. But is that completely true? Loki or one of the other Evil gods may have their own plans for it, perhaps cut down on the competition?

    Otoh, I'd assume at least some of the evil ones are not idiots and want to survive. I look forward to the new players we're about to see. And I really wanna know what others in V's demographic think about power...

    See, this is what I love about this comic.

    The idea of the IFCC is gold- it could probably sustain an entirely new comic. Hell, I'd visit twice a week. And that's just one throwaway gag in one strip of OoTS.

    Bravo.

    Nice one, giant!

    I can feel the plot ramping up! I have a feeling, though, that we're going to have a scene change soon...

    The comic today was great. It's awesome how lighthearted selling your soul has become.

    And here we learn that Sabine's supervisors include both demons and devils, so we still don't know which arrow hurt her.

    "Blood war what is it good for!"

    "Good God's Y'all!"

    I loved this one. The song goes "WAR! What is it good for? Absolutely, NOTHING! Good Gods Y'all!" so this is a funny take on it.

    But ya, WOOHOO! "I Knew It!" moments!

    I predicted the Time Stop effect, someone called Sabine meeting these people and them being involved!

    Okay so we have a Polymorphed Pit Fiend, Balor, and whatever the Yugoslavia equivalent is.

    And indeed Sabine's Bosses stake their claim in Vaarsuvius.

    I suspect they've incercepted this message and are acting of their own accord...

    or, a Duke of hell, a minor demon lord, and a yugoloth lord- there is a tier between pit fiend and archdevil.

    Ultroloth is the highest ranked of the non-unique yugoloths.

    My Three Fiends is a reference to "My Three Sons," an OLD sitcom.

    What is their agenda? Probably preventing the Snarl from destroying the universe again... No Universe, no souls to torment!

    It can be a double entrende too.

    For who is the blood war good for?

    For the Good Gods of course.
