    RE: white specs in the water...Duv does have feathers..

    regarding KOre being the BBEG...not sure if we can establish that. He's definitely a fearsome foe, and is going to be a "Big Deal," but I don't think the comic has established a definite main plot yet, and the closest is has come is the Duv "goblins must take their rightful place in the world" plot we have going on with Dies

    The female goblins all seem to be much taller than the other goblins to me, aside from the old teller.

    Is it just me, or were the odds that that orc would fall on Duv really, really low?

    That's like, something I'd expect to find in OOtS, not Goblins.

    Biscuit jumped off the cliff at the exact same place Duv fell off it, AND he has a lot of surface area. The odds aren't all that bad.

    It's not so much that, so much as in which comic it happened. Improbably and comically falling on things seems to be an OOtS thing more. Still, I guess it has no monopoly on that.

    As for the cra-sploosh... I'm hoping Duv's not dead. That'd probably be lame. But I'll have to see how it's handled.

    The image I'm seeing in the future of Biscuit noticing Fox bleeding out and giving her a healing potion with a 'ptoo' is great, though.
    I now have a picture of Biscut giving Fox a literal "kiss of life" to pass some healing potion to her, unable to just open his mouth due to risk of it all spilling out.

    Thank you for that.

    It's a well known fact that when it comes to drama, improbable events are actually more likely to happen. OOtS may have done a good job pointing that out, but it's basically true in nearly every story.

    I guess so. Elan said something about that when a million to one was a sure thing. Not every story operates like that, but enough do.

    *scratchhead* How exactly are the numbers giving in your table any different than those in my graphic?
    4-8 for medium, 8-16 for large...

    The first black figure is the minimum for medium, the grey beside it is average for medium (6 ft), it's not the max or anything. And the next black one is max for medium and min for large...
    And so on. One size category goes from black to black.

    Anyway according to your table, small is 2-4 ft tall, and large is 8-16. That's 3 and 12 on average or a factor of 4.
    As I said unless Biscuit is really small for Large size and the goblins tall for Small size, I don't see it...

    For the old West End Games Star Wars roleplaying game, there was a Rebel Special Ops book that included a glossary of amusing spec-ops slang. There were various sarcastic names for missions of increasing difficulty, culminating in the mission where the odds of survival were one in a million. It's name was the "Skywalker Special".

    Maybe Duv is a half/quarter-flumpf. That could explain it too.

    Technically speaking, that falling damage should have offed both of them.

    Unless one had class levels, or that cliff wasn't nearly as high as it looked.

    Although, the white splatter when Biscuit landed may be indicative of a dead winged goblin. The water may break Biscuit's fall, and he could always have nat 20'd an acrobatics to lower the damage >.>

    That's the second time I've seen this crazy theory. Duv is not made of paste! If those were chunks of goblin, they'd be red. Thunt does not censor his gore.

    There are silent letters in orc language, but that's only because they're intended to be pronounced by hitting the nearest person in the face. The language is very nuanced. On the bright side, this fact has made the orcish debate the favorite sport of the race! Nothing punctuates a proper rebuttal by kicking someone in the ass.

    But it's a lot easier for feathers from a wing to fly away than the goblin body exploding into 100 pieces.

    However I guess we'll better wait till next comic to see how this turned out.

    Of course, considering how much Thunt's likes cliffhangers... this could have been the last comic of this arc for the next two years. Almost all characters in negative HP, and those that aren't are still severely wounded and might bleed out any moment too.

    Well he didn't really look "desperate" to me; I read it as more of a "screw this, I'm outta here", less because he didn't feel able to take the Vipers (there's no way he doesn't have Great Cleave, and I'd bet he could do it even with unarmed strikes), but simply because it would be too much bother to hobble around with one leg when he could just quit the battlefield (and feel no sense of loss for the missed goblin-mashing opportunity).
