    Default Xykon's Phylactery

    Is it possible that Xykon's Phylactery cannot be found by anyone but Xykon now? Like Ravenwing, maybe no one but someone spiritually or telepathically linked with the object can see it anymore. Or whatever relationship V had with Ravenwing.

    This would mean those hobgoblins searching couldn't find it which would probably lead to Xykon spending time to find it?

    I like to believe that Blackwing and the Order were working together to mess with V (yeah I know, unlikely).

    I doubt Xykon's phylactery is affected, since Blackwing's lack of notability by the Order seems to be more for comedy, while Xykon's is more for drama.

    If that's true, then Xykon is going to be really, really, really ticked.

    But Voorsovias can't see Ravenwing all the time, right? And when s/he actually sees Ravenwing, so does Ray, Darkoon, Balkrat, Hailat and Elbardan too.

    Red Cloak saw it fine around his neck as did O-Chul seeing as how he snatched it off the guy's fleeing body.

    Also, the comments about no one seeing Blackwing were purely for comedy, unless there is a character called Ravenwing that we the readers actually can't see.

    Xykon's phylactery is hidden by plot. It will take exactly as long to find as it takes for Roy to reach the gate [or some other plot-designated point.] We will likely see nothing about Azure City until it is found, and then see just one strip on that before Team Evil heads off to the confrontation.

    We might not even see that much, if Team Evil simply pops in arguing about how long it took to find (similar to the Order popping into Cliffport via teleportation.)

    That might just be true. But maybe you are putting too much thought into it? After all, Blackwing is a living creature.

    I agree with David and Optimystik. There's no reason to show the sewer dungeon crawl, especially in the online comic.

    However, I do think it could make a neat add on for the next book. Personally I'd like to see it from a hobgoblin grunt's point of view, just for a change of pace.

    Yep. David summed it up perfectly. The phylactery will be found when the plot needs for it to be found, and not a moment before.

    You mean moving at the speed of plot? And not found through commonsense, heresy I tell you, Heresy.

    Pish tosh. A common sense explanation will be applied, but the plot is the driving force. you know it, I know it.

    Where did this idea come from? Everyone could see it fine before. And as for RAVENwing (I can only assume you mean Blackwing), people have seen the bird before, it was just a joke in one comic.
