    Does the vampire version of Brother Sandstone count?

    Ooh, good question, I missed that, thanks!

    Unfortunately by the rules I set forth earlier I have to say no. Brother Sandstone only has a total of 8 appearances and nobody bet on him. So he doesn't count, and bets still can't be changed.

    In the first post of the thread, where you list the last significant death, I think it would be useful to list which strip the death has happened in, and the date of publication of that strip, so that it's easy for anyone to tell which votes can still be changed. Currently (after #1107) the last significant character death is Crystal (reanimated as a Crystal golem) getting destroyed in #981, which was published near 2015-04-27T08:49Z.

    Since I voted later than that (on 2016-12-20), I can't change my vote now, even though now that Hilgya has joined the party to provide punchlines, it is finally possible to off Belkar.

    Ah, I was assuming people would tell by checking post order relative to the post I made announcing it. But I'll go edit in the date as well.

    I think Belkar kills the Vampire Dwarf with Blue Beard and Balding Head in #1119 panel 5. He should die permanently because Belkar used a stake and his eyes changed, and this death counts for this thread because the Wrecan thread says he's got 10 appearances (but I have my reservations, so I've asked them). Do I understand this correctly? Who gets points, and do we get to change our votes now? If we can change, then

    I bet that Belkar will die next.

    Update: I can confirm the ten appearances:
    1. #1101 splash panel very back;
    2. #1102 third panel bottom left corner;
    3. #1104 ninth panel, half of him is visible on the very left;
    4. #1105 first panel second from the left, and eleventh panel leftmost;
    5. #1109 eight panel bottom right corner, just barely visible;
    6. #1111 second and third panel middle, with dialog;
    7. #1116 third panel second from left climbing the wall with super spider powers;
    8. #1117 sixth panel second from right, with speech, then seventh and eighth panel attacking Vaarsuvius, then twelfth panel, slowed down by the chaos hammer;
    9. #1118 second panel right front;
    10. #1119 fifth panel, Belkar kills him with a stake.
    Sniffnoy, can you confirm that this counts as a significant death for the purposes of this thread?

    The fun part is that since he has exactly ten appearances, the tenth being his death, nobody could have cast a valid vote for him. (Unless Sniffnoy rules that the intelligence he delivers in #1111 makes him significant.) But that's what you get if you write lawyerable rules.

    ...huh. Yeah, that's an edge case I hadn't thought of. I should've made the rule to require one more appearance for those purposes. I didn't! I'll change it in the future but this one counts.

    Nobody gets points, bets may now be changed!

    And I'll go update the initial one with your Belkar bet...

    To confirm, if a vampire is killed and resurrected, it counts as a death, right?

    If so, I'll vote on the Nameless Vampire from the end of strip 1111.
    In the Number of Character Appearances thread, they're listed as CoTS Usher with Sandy Hair and have 12 appearances.

    (TBH I'm pretty sure most or all of the spawn in the current battle will die first, but I don't feel like figuring out which is which.)

    Very left of the second-last panel of 1119, he's got X's in his eyes.

    As my "it seemed like a good idea at the time" prior vote for Tarquin would indicate, I haven't been in this thread in ages, but I figured it can't hurt to get back into it. I'd like to change my bet to the nameless Creed of Stone human vampire ("CotS Usher with Long Hair" in the character appearances thread; also nicknamed 'Ponchula' by some). I think all of the vampires in this hall apart from Durkon* will not survive the fight.

    Check this game out! Or at least give it a thumbs up.
    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    OK, pretty sure at least one qualifying character died in #1122, give me a moment to figure out exactly who...

    It looks like the deaths are: Vampire Dwarf with Red Ponytail, and... some other vampires who don't matter for these purposes because nobody bet on them.

    One point for me, and bets may now be changed again!

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    So, just to be clear, #1126 does *not* contain any deaths that count. (The one vampire shown to be killed in it has only 8 appearances.)

    The best thread derailment of all time.

    Heh heh heh. We're so bad at this game. There's a big fight between the high-level party of the Order of the Stick and the supernaturally tough vampires, plus a low-level character Minrah. Minrah dies in #1128, and nobody foresees it.

    I'm not changing my vote though, for now.

    Yeah, basically as soon as I saw the post about her death I was like "Hang on, she's a low level character in a fight too big for her, she's an easy target to kill off to show that things are serious, and her role as Cleric was taken over by Hilgya so she's not even important for party balance. How did I not see this coming?"

    Granted, the last two things turned out to be irrelevant since the whole Order was knocked out at the same time. But they would have been good reasons to vote for her before #1128. I guess my excuse is that I forgot she existed...

    I still feel like Tarquin is going to be announced to have been killed unceremoniously offscreen, so I'm not changing my vote.
