    I love goblins comic but there is one thing I don't like. Thunt opened up too many frontlines of the player characters (Goblin Adventure Party and Kore, Min Mix and his company, and current Dies party. It is not bad but it hinders the story progress.

    I'm pretty sure we're not going to see the GAP again until after the Maze of Many storyline wraps up. But I would count Saves vs. Duv as its own nascent scene, so there's that, plus Biscuit and Dies, plus Grem, plus Fogath/Minmax/Kin, and technically Tempts Fate. And that's assuming he doesn't randomly decide to start a new arc for the purple hobgoblin or something. So you're right that there are a lot of different cliffs for us to hang from.

    Forgath, Minmax, and the ex-drow are technechly the only ones with players, but yeah i get what you mean.

    The moster party is supposed to be an important part of the story i beleive, but from what i'm aware thunt doesnt want the extra workload. I beleive it's been mentioned that they're hoping to hire annother artist to draw that story to take over one of the two update days, but i could be wrong, so take this with a grain of salt.

    The only ones known to have players. Fogath didn't seem to know he was played by a girl until Minmax pointed it out, so it's possible that the goblins have players but don't know this. Then again you may be completely right; technically I don't think it's even entirely established that Minmax has a player.

    Oh, and am I the only one who wants the ex-drow group to show up again? It seems as though Thunt just kinda abandoned them, but it's possible that they'll pop up again in some surprising way.

    Well I love Thunt's style but I can't blame him a bit if he needs to roll back on the investment.

    I beleive Thunt said out of comic somewhere that the goblins are player characters, but dont actually have players. Baisically they get the benifits without any limits or bonuses players give them.

    Wha? I really didn't get "Holy crap I didn't know that" from that face. He just seems annoyed at Minmax for his inane logic.

    Well whatever he calls it, it's a great monster. Has anyone ever statted it up? Aberration type is a gimme, clearly Aquatic, but beyond that I dunno.

    Oh gods.

    I don't suppose I can just say "That's a very touchy subject," and just leave it at that, can I?

    Thunt released the stats on it. Massive controversy ensued. Generally regarded as a pretty nonsensical stat block. Bringing it up again causes pages of arguing. And we just did that, like, two weeks ago.

    Looking at that matchup chart, I almost feel bad for the guys at the bottom. Right up until I remember that it could have easily been avoided.

    From a narrative standpoint, here are my predictions.

    Grem vs. Biscuit

    This fight could go either way. Biscuit has only recently been introduced, so it would make sense for him to stick around for awhile. However, Grem has been gone for quite awhile, so it would also make sense that he would win, because why bring him back just to die? Given what I think is going to happen in the following scenario, I think Grem's going to win this.

    Saves a Fox vs. Duv

    Saves a Fox is going to die. Like, hardcore going to die. Duv is becoming the big threat of the world. She is the White Terror. There's been prophecies that she will come back in a big way. It will also lead to some drama between Duv and Grem if Duv kills Fox. Duv wins.

    Dies Horribly vs. Everyone else

    Obviously Dies is going to win this one. I think some of them may survive, but Dies is going to hardcore kill them. It makes much more sense as well to keep him around since he is the new chief. The hand's personality might even side with the Viper clan (probably not though). Dies wins.

    What do you think will happen?

    I don't think that each of those three matchups will necessarily end in one side dead. It's not IMPOSSIBLE that they'll ALL survive... but I'm guessing we lose at least one named character here.

    I would say in order of least-to-most danger:

    Dies Horribly
    Klik
    Duv
    Biscuit
    Grem
    Saves a Fox
    One of DH's opponents

    This is pure speculation however, but I think DH dying after fulfilling his prophecy and having the plot hook about the two souls would possibly be anticlimactic.

    Well, also, if Dies dies here, it'd sort of be like his entire plotline has been a waste, since it doesn't seem like much has been accomplished yet that would relate back to the other half of the story.

    I mean, I assume they have to reconnect somehow. And if Dies dies here, then they're completely severed -- almost nothing would really connect them anymore.

    He can fly, so avoiding it won't be hard if he chooses to. Of course he has something of a history of endangering himself.
