    Default More proof of evil

    In the newest strip, I found more disturbing proof of the horrible evil of Roy, Haley, and the order.

    "Do you think we can beat the goblins in seven weeks?"

    Ignoring the genocide issue, since it has already been proven that goblins are all Lawful Good and totally righteous, doesn't this make the Order horrible evil?

    Are you being sarcastic? I can't tell. Taking you at face value, not all goblins are Lawful Good. Redcloak certainly isn't. While a compelling character, he commits terrible acts against people he should be striving to protect. If you've read SOD, I think you know what I'm talking about.

    ...And that is how I met your father.

    Good catch, but you forgot that Vaarsuvius is invisible in panel 3, having been freed from the Hold Person spell, and is waiting to kill either of them if they question V's recent misadventure.

    Redcloak absolutely is Lawful Good. Everything redcloak has ever done makes him the paragon of Lawful Good, and an excellent contrast to the terrible evil that is Roy.

    Ignoring your sarcasm, the "goblins" refers to Xykon's army specifically, probably because they know that even if they beat Xykon, the hobgoblins will still have a foothold in Azure City.

    Haven't you heard? D&D isn't doing good and evil alignments anymore. Rather they're replacing the "Good" and "Evil" with names of rock guitarists. So clearly most goblins are either Neutral Keith Richards or Neutral Kirk Hammet.

    Redcloack is most definately Chaotic Slash formerly of Guns & Rose.

    Not so! For just as Good slaying Evil is not necessarily Good, Evil slaying Good is not necessarily Evil.

    Troll thread is a troll.

    As for legitimate input; Xykon, Redcloak, Jirix even are all evil. They were all willing to throw a group of humans into the Snarl if it would have made O'chul confess information about the other gates.

    Actual definitions of the word "beat" notwithstanding, if the OotS were to kill them all, they would likely retain their (mostly) Good alignments.

    Xykon, certainly- Redcloak- probably, depending on his state when they meet up.

    Remember that when stymied by O-chul his response is "Let them go- this is a waste of time."

    While I like the notion of him having a "what have I done" moment and siding with the Order against, say, Xykon, or The Snarl, I am not too optimistic about it.

    My opinion is kind of the converse of yours, namely:

    1. He's not trying to troll.

    2. People are being trolled anyway.

    3. We should hold this forum to higher standards than freaking 4chan.

    4. We can't have sarcasm anymore?

    1 and 2) From what I see, half the thread is attempting to play along, while the other half is pointing out the utter lack of funny. Only a couple of people are actually arguing that goblins aren't LG etc.

    3) Trolling works anywhere where a poster can get a response, not just 4chan (in fact, 4chan is one of the worst places on the web to troll: peeing into an ocean of, etc.)

    4) Sure we can, but it tends to go over better if it's funny.

    I know what you mean. Ever since I posted the Rube Goldberg "This is how Miko is going to become a Blackguard" one, it's amazed me how people instantly take it at face value.

    And actually, I think that if I hurry and make the "GRRRR ALIGNMENT!" posts first, the actual argument ones won't start as often.


    Oh yeah, and, um...

    Why is there a discussion on good and evil in this forum? There is only one possible explanation, you all must be evil! Prepare to be slaughtered fiends! SLASH! SLASH! SLASH!

    I have not read this forum to expose myself to such evil, yet I am certain this forum speaks of extremely vile acts, yet The Giant has not ended the conversation. Therefore The Giant must also be evil! SLASH! SLASH! SLASH!

    The twelve gods have not stopped me, therefore my cause must be just! This site must be destroyed! SLASH! SLASH! SLASH!
