    Well, bother. I'll hold on Lien, since this book is near enough over now.

    In light of how the story seems to be progressing, I am changing my vote to Haley

    You know, very soon after betting on Belkar I became convinced by those voting for Z, but it was too late to change my vote and I paid the price. I doubt we'll see another death soon, so I'll stick with Belkar for now.

    Hrm. Well, you had to figure Z was the most endangered character still around simply by virtue of being the least important one, but I thought he might stick around for a little while longer to give Nale some much-needed firepower. Guess not.

    It strikes me that Durkula still has a Resurrection handy, so a member of the Order could conceivably bite it here and still be around for the next book. Tempted to switch my bet to Haley, but...if I do that and she doesn't die here, I may have to wait a long time to change my bet again and she's unlikely to die early in the next book. Sigh...I guess I'll leave my bet where it is.

    Gah. Well, it's apparent that the Tarquin arc is nearly over; I just can't decide whether the Order will actually kill him (thus at least fulfilling his "live as a king until you die" story) or somehow leave him alive long-term but suffering in ignominy/anonymity (which would seem the more satisfying, storywise).

    Oh, the heck with it. I'll just go for the kobold. Kilkil, if you'd be so kind.

    Well, that certainly didn't go as expected! I was sure we'd see a confrontation with Tarquin first. Apparently not.

    Nice. My bet on Z paid off. We've already had 2 dead members of the Order, one quite recently, so I doubt Haley or Belkar are going to go down. But do you know who has an epic Lich Sorcerer bearing down on them and no idea it's coming? O-Chul and Lien. (And Hinjo, too, perhaps? Crap.) So, in that case, I'll go with O-Chul. Longshot, perhaps, but I'll go for it.

    I thought that Durkon would only be able to rejoin the Order by Raise Deading a heroic teammate who tried to draw off the Elemental -_-

    I guess that speaks to the writing quality of OOTS, if people can feel worried about a main character's survival even though them dying would be narratively off, despite the fact that the comic constantly references the fact that it follows traditional narrative rules.

    Haley is getting killed by an elemental, and Belkar is right in the thick of things to put his newly learned ability to sacrifice his life for others to good use

    I don't know...I guess I'm just going to stick with Sabine until the bitter end. It's either her or Nale next, for sure.

    R.I.P Zz'dtri. You'll always be the best the LG ever had in my opinion. 'Tis a shame you weren't defeated by V in an epic battle of wizards.

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

    I think that mostly, having a wizard around who can cast Teleport (even for the bad guys) is bad for the story. Wizards capable of casting that spell seem to have a pretty short lifespan.

    (Actually, if Sabine is a Succubus, then she has Greater Teleport at will, though she can't take anyone else with her.)

    Damn! Characters are really dropping like flies right now. Didn't think Zzdi'tri was going down this fast.

    Anyway, sticking with Belkar, although I have a feeling the next death will be a little further off.

    So, I was reading this thread yesterday with the intention of laying my first bet... and then I thought "Nah, no-one else is going to die in this book. I'll just hold my bet and see where the sto... Wait, what just happened???"

    Ah, whatever, I'll go for a first bet on:

    Lien

    on the basis that one of her or O'Chul is going to bite it after TE's imminent arrival at Kraagor's Gate.
    Geez, what is it with that guy and needing to figure out all the fiddly little details?

    I know, right? It's called "Suspension of Disbelief"...

    2 points! One of 9!

    Before I make a more human next bet, does the Devil count as a character? On the one hand, he has no name, no character, no dialogue and a short life expectancy as summons are quite powerful and the Order don't do it. On the other, he now rivals Amun-Zora in appearences and is likely to last 2 more comics.

    If it actually lasts 2 more comics, I'll allow it. Until then, no.

    Are you able to change once it hits 10? It's fine if it's not.

    As for my new bet, it was difficult deciding between Tarquin and Geoff.

    I go with Uncle Geoff. Simply because he has to come back to the story with Ian and Tarquin soon because book 5 is about family. Of these 3 characters he has the shortest life span as he has no room for character development and is not a "side". Also he's hiding something.

    Yeah I'm going to disallow that.

    (Although since RSLee awarded GnomeGninjas 1/2 point for his illegal but correct bet, perhaps I could sort-of-follow that precedent here. :P Similarly with androkguz if the High Priest of Odin really does die next. Well or so it might have been had not Zz'ddtri died next instead.)

    Yes. Those who held their bets did the smart thing in this case.
