    Good point; this was pretty much my reason for voting for Malack.

    That said, Sabine has a certain amount of plot armor from being a recurring character - not as much as Nale, but some.

Your bet on Tarquin has been recorded, though.
    Ok... but lets say that no one dies for a couple of comics and the High Priest appears and gets like... 5 or more comics of significance where he talks to Durkula or Redcloak and explains his importance on the comic... and then dies.
    I would just want everyone to remember that I said it first.

    Wow, I was actually right about Malack. I can't believe it.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that the next death with be Geoff. I don't think they'll leave the desert without the Tarquin/Ian subplot being resolved. Malack already died, so I doubt Tarquin will. I also doubt that Ian Starshine will die. However, Geoff seems to be involved in some dubious stuff, and his fate is tied to the Ian/Tarquin/Bozzok mess. So, I'm betting on him being the next one to bite it.

    Carefully reasoned; therefore, undoubtedly, I've just talked myself into a totally wrong opinion.

    Ah, but she's a recurring character who is (I'm guessing) about to get some final characterization. This lovey-dovey stuff is new, and actually painting her as sympathetic is very new. I think she's going to fill a story purpose, like helping V out or stopping Nale from doing something, and then die. There's been foreshadowing in the manner of "Huh...Sabine's got emotions and wants?"

    Remember Hilgya? (Durkon's female counterpart.) As soon as she revealed her full story, she left. I think it's gonna get a little messier with Sabine.

    I either want to say Durkon, because he looks like he could be killed off by Nale or rekilled to be a human or something again, Haley, because she is currently being suffocated. However I think I will go with, the next person dying being.........Haley

    Yeeeeees! He got what he deserved! And I got my point

    Well, I'll go with Tarquin. I think the next death will be caused by Ian or Ian will be killed. But I can imagine him take his part in Haley's epilogue.

    I think we've seen some affection from Sabine in previous appearances. I do agree it's a little stronger recently.

    I had been fervently hoping that Belkar would die soon so that I could change my bet to Nale in time. Instead, the Giant was way ahead of me all along. No change from Belkar for the moment.

    After reading this last one, I don't think that the Giant will let the linear guild get away with this one entirely. So I vote Zz'dtri

    You know, I lose nothing by switching my bet back to Zz'drti. I still don't expect any more death this arc, but if it ends, then I can go ahead and switch to Lien again without any problems. So yeah, put me down for Z.

    I hate to say this, but, uh, you've misread the rules pretty badly. You can't switch your bet until another character dies.

    Well, that was unexpected. I'm holding on Nale for now, though more as a placeholder than an actual bet.

    Yes, but WHICH High Priest? The one that sent Durkon away is already dead, and the new high priest doesn't seem to be remotely important as a figure.

    PS It seems pretty likely that ther'es going to be at least one more death in the pyramid area, so it's almost certainly going to be one of:
    Durkula
    Nale
    Zzdriti
    Tarquin
    any of the OOTS (though a res spell might be possible if Durkula rejoins for whatever reason... Belkar as a vampire might be pretty interesting too)

    androkguz said the high priest of Odin, not of Thor. A character strictly from OtOoPCs, who is still alive as far as we know.

    Score! Good riddance, Malack. Didn't see it coming from Nale, though. Pretty awesome.

    I think Belkar Bitterleaf's time has almost run out now.

    Well my theory on how things with Malack would end up didn't come true at all. In light of his death and with my guess that we'll be changing locale soon I'm going to change my vote from Tarquin to O-Chul.

    Z got his teeth smashed in, so he can't cast spells with verbal components (speculation). I'm doubling down on my previous bet of Zz'dtri

    And the winning vote is... Zz'dtri! Congratulations to all who voted correctly!

    And while I'm here, I guess I'll take a bet on Haley Starshine.

    ...Well, I'll be darned.

    I'll hold off on placing another bet for the moment, though, because with Durkon having rejoined the Order I now really think this book's pretty much over.
