    Default OOTS Polls (feat. Favourite NPC Tournament)

    There's a lot of speculation on the forums, and with that a lot of disagreement. So, I figure it makes sense to run polls between strips to gauge forum opinion.

    Favourite NPC Tournament Results

    #842 - All in the Family
    Is Girard Draketooth alive?
    Yes: 6 - 26.08%
    No: 17 - 73.91%

    #843 - Lack of Foresight
    We found out that V has killed considerably more than one-quarter of the Black Dragon population. Can s/he ever be redeemed for hir actions?
    Yes: 19 - 95.00%
    No: 1 - 5.00%

    #844 - Case In Point
    Will Vaarsuvius be the first to tell the Order about Familicide?
    Yes: 8 - 47.05%
    No: 9 - 52.94%

    Chaotic: 4 - 25%
    Lawful: 4 - 25%
    Neutral: 8 - 50%

    #845 - The Last Laugh
    Does Girard's gate lie in between Girard's buttcheeks, either literally, metaphorically, semantically or through some other loophole?
    Yes: 8 - 34.78%
    No: 15 - 65.21%

    #846 - No Bone Unturned
    The Order just found a corpse. Is that corpse Girard Draketooth?
    Yes: 26 - 89.65%
    No: 3 - 10.34%

    #847 - Dropping the Ball
    Will the Order (minus V) be forced to return to their most successful tactic? (Will they flee from Linear Guild v.4 like little girls).
    Yes: 14 - 45.16%
    No: 17 - 54.83%

    #848 - Acid Redux
    Yukyuk died shielding Mr. Scruffy from two consecutive acid baths. Does this elicit some kind of negative reaction? (sad? bad? mad?)
    Yes: 4 - 20.00%
    No: 16 - 80.00%

    #849 - Suspicious Agreement
    Is Nale in any way prepared to counter Tarquin's inevitable betrayal?
    Yes: 11 - 50.00%
    No: 11 - 50.00%

    #850 - not-thog
    The Order vs Tarquin! In the short time they have, who do you think will gain the advantage?
    OotS: 3 - 15.00%
    Tarquin: 17 - 85.00%

    #851 - Passive Voice

    No: 14 - 58.33%

    #852 - Under the Helmet

    Yes: 19 - 82.60%
    No: 4 - 17.39%

    #853 - The Dangers of Progress
    Will Vaarsuvius rejoin the party before the battle for Girard's Gate is decided?

    No: 3 - 12.00%

    #854 - Not Much Chance of That
    If it comes to it, which side will Tarquin ultimately choose?

    Alive - but with negative hit points

    No, seriously, I think he's alive - partly because of the halo theory, partly because it'd be a waste to kill such a character so early.

    What if he becomes a demigod or god like Elderscrolls Talos (or any Mortal turned into deity characters).

    That is the only way it will be possible that he's alive. Otherwise its a "NO."

    That'll still be yes and no. Remember, God exists in OOTS verse and it'll be yes if he can descend to earth.

    His greatfather being a dragon, Girard may have a better lifespan than any human. If he died years before, that means that familicide stroke his child even with at least one missing link between ABD and them.

    That means that if familicide was casted on me :
    - My parents would die.
    - My mother parents and my brother would die.
    - My father's brother and sister would die even if their parent's passed away years ago.
    - My mother's mother's brothers and sister would die, then all my mother's cousins (starts to make a bunch of peoples).
    etc...

    Going up and down in every family tree connected to mine, regardless if peoples are or aren't dead would be a massacre.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he turned out to still be alive somehow, but my gut feeling is that he's probably dead. So, no.

    Uh huh. Yep. It would cause that in my opinion. Familicide was an epically broken spell. As it should be.

    And I wonder if Dragonborn do get an extended lifespan in 3rd Ed. In 4th Ed they do not.
    If I cared about this, I would probably do something about it.

    Dragonborn in 3rd ed get there age reset to 200 years and given a life span of 800 IIRC. But I'd like to point out that Dragonborn in 3rd ed are vastly different than in 4e, mainly that its an acquired template because Bahamaut choose non-dragon humanoids to be his envoys and paragons of his faith to non-dragons. They are no so much a race as they are individually selected chosen from the Platinum Dragon himself.

    For the sake of The Story and the laws of drama, I must say yes.

    (I'm a fan of the flesh-to-stone theory right now, but I think it still counts as 'yes' since according to srd you aren't dead when you are turned into stone.)

    Not "alive" in the traditional sense, because of old age. I mean, Lord Shojo was just a little kid when Soon abdicated, so he'd be, what, 120? More? Even Dorukan who seemed to be the youngest member of the party was venerable when Xykon attacked.

    On the other hand, he seemed to be paranoid enough to place himself under some sort of stasis, Flesh to Stone or the like. And the statue in #841 was suspicious as hell.

    And he's proven (the desert trap) that he can cast contingent spells that wait for many many years, so perhaps he'll be reanimated when some yet unknown condition is met, such as someone getting too close to the gate.

    Soon met Lirian about 66 years before the OOTS was on trial, so Girard would be in his 80s or 90s. Probably best to ignore the fact that Shojo looks like a little kid in that flashback.

    Well, unless Soon was significantly older than the others from the beginning. Then the timeline could work. Of course, Girard would still have to be at least as old as Dorukan.

    Yes Every other member of the Order of the Scribble was alive*, why wouldn't Girrard be?

    * Ok, so Soon might be technically dead, but he was still active and played a major role, so I don't count that as "beyond the mortal plane" :)
