    Does that include characters that are already dead, like Roy's father?

    (Can we bet on characters that are already dead? Notionally there are ways for them to "die" in the sense that their soul could be destroyed or somesuch.)

    Well, you certainly can bet on characters that are already dead -- it's been done before. (There's a joke bet on Miko...) I don't think "soul being destroyed counts as a death" is in the rules right now but, well, I'd count it, and I could add it if people think it really needs to be.

    Is Rich a character in his own comic? I vaguely recall him appearing at one point, but I can't recall where - perhaps the aside when he cut his thumb?

    Yup, the appearances thread list it as his sole appearance: http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0864.html

    I think I have to rule that in-comic-Rich isn't a significant enough character to qualify for an exception to the "at least 10 appearances" rule, sorry.

    Oh my god! It's like you don't want me to bet in your betting pool.


    You know what? Fine.


    I will bet every single possesion I have ever owned that you die before the next comic comes out!

    You can only bet points, kinglinus! And Sniffnoy isn't a character in the comic at all!

    kinglinus, this is not 'nam, this is the OOTS Death Pool. There are rules.

    Merlin's beard, you all are lawful neutral. I could actually read the rules, but Sniffnoy was already bumping for visibility, and this is more fun.

    I bet -30 points that Roy overthrows Persia in the next 13 comics.

    Persia isn't a character in the comic!

    I'm not sure there's a specific rule against negative bets, but generally speaking bets have to be framed in "bet on character X" - you can't just bet on them "for the next comic", since you're not allowed to change your bet until they or someone else dies. Also, you don't lose your bet if you get it wrong, so you wouldn't gain anything from eg. a negative bet on Elan.

    Welp, nobody bet on Kandro, but (to my surprise) he has enough appearances to count! So, nobody gets points, but bets may now be changed.

    It looks (as of #1167) like we're starting the sequence where Durkon will be heading to the council chamber and break the ceiling to let sunlight in and destroy all the vampires. Now I have to decide which of the remaining four vampires will die first, to maximize my points. Sandy is damaged here and is in the way of the fighters, but he also seems tough.

    I change my bet to the vampire dwarf with blue curly hair and blue robe, whose unholy symbol has a yellow outline, aka Curly, who has speaking role in #1157. She's had enough apparences according to the counting thread.

    OK, so, for the longest time, I thought that Tarquin's death would be announced kind of offhandedly, as if he were a minor character in a Shakespeare play.

    Now, I'm pretty much convinced that he won't even get that much closure. Call me impatient, but we're nearing the end of the story. It doesn't look like there will be an opportunity for that to be announced offhand.

    I'm changing my vote to Sigdi Thundershield, aka Durkon's mother. She has the advantage of being a character who probably wouldn't want to be resurrected.
