    One page, surely - going by the chart, it has 271 pages to DStP's 272?

    The chart contains several estimates about how larger page spreads will be arranged--most notably the graveyard of the worlds. Porthos and I just count actual pages, since we don't know how Rich intends to handle those--many people were expecting the 'infinite canvas' shot in W&XPs to be about seven pages in the book, but Porthos lowballed it and was proven right. Well, more right.

    Likewise, there are no estimates about bonus content. Well, those people don't post in the thread anymore, to be more accurate.

    Good point - I think 1143 was the point where your count stopped matching the table.

    Your figure was 21 pages to match DStP, martianmister's indicates 20 pages:

    Apologies if this has already been discussed (I'd guess it has), but what's the story with Good Deeds Gone Unpunished? I see we have Spoiler Alert and How the Paladin Got His Scar in the Yet To Be Compiled section, but it seems like those have been compiled?

    Is it too early to place our bets for final published book length? My money is on Book 6 ending up with sixteen more pages than BRitF, so a total of 384.

    I don't think we'll get that far, but the fact that the current count is before introduction, author commentary and any bonus content is...daunting. I might need to start hitting the gym more often before trying to carry this book around.

    You might well be right that we won't get that far, but the great thing about this thread is it lets us crunch the numbers. *pushes glasses up nose*

    Using your count, we're 88 pages from BRitF. (martianmister's gives 87, but let's use the longer one.)

    On-the-low-side-of-average estimates would give us 46 pages for bonus material and 14 pages for denouement. That leaves only 28 to finish the climactic battle. (And that's not strips, of course, that's pages. Assuming the same strip-to-page ratio of the book so far, that's about 22 strips.)

    It's definitely not impossible! But I'm going to bet that things will run long instead. Because this is OotS. :)

    I will say that the odds seem very low of it being shorter than BRitF. Whether it's the same or longer is more of a toss-up, but that's what makes it fun to guess!

    I'll agree that I think we're likely to get quite a book when this is finally wrapped up. It'll be interesting to see how close to BRitF the final product actually ends up being. And then when that's done we can place our bets on the size of Book 7

    Do you think it will end with a climax at the dwarf council, or do you think there will also be a return to the Godsmoot and/or check ins with the Azurites or a new arc villain or the paladins and Team Evil at the north pole?

    Next book is the finale, so the arc villains will be Team Evil. The Godsmoot is functionally irrelevant at this point, although I wouldn't be surprised if the end of the vote here results in a pull-back shot until we see the scene contained in Dvalin's 'eye' as he sees what the vote is, resulting in him casting his vote and the HPoO wrapping up the deal. The Azurites back on the island stopped mattering last book, so no reason to check in on them. We might get a hook at the end of Team Evil going into a new tunnel, to remind us that they're still in play.

    I think I'm pretty safe in saying that this is the final, climactic, battle for this book. Whether it stays in one place geographically, though, who knows? But any steps it takes would have to escalate it... so I could see the protagonists going to Hel's lair, for example, but probably not returning to the Godsmoot for any length of time.

    I could be wrong, of course! Now that I've said that I can think of ways the Godsmoot could be an escalation. What if Hel decides to manifest there? But it would still have to be part of this same battle. No travel time or adventures on the way, etc.

    As far as checking in with other groups, sure, but that would be saved for the denouement. Seeing them in this sequence would kill the momentum unless they were to have an immediate impact on the fight. Which is not impossible, of course! Also one-panel cutaway jokes, etc. But it would have to be something fast and unexpected; there'd be no set-up or establishing strips.

    In the denouement, though, anything goes, I think. Check in with whomever we want for a couple strips at least. It's not what usually happens but I can't think of any narrative reason it couldn't. Team Evil, sure. Azurites, why not. In Good Deeds Go Unpunished, Rich says that
    Spoiler: which is indeed a spoiler
    Show
    "I love writing the Katos, but...their part in the overarching plot...is mostly in the past. Hinjo, on the other hand, still has a major role to play in events yet to come"
    so there's that coming up, for sure, and I wouldn't be surprised if we get some setup for it while tying up the other loose ends. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't! It's wide open.

    Personally, I think that the last main action will conclude here at the Council*; if we do check back on the Godsmoot, it'll probably only be a brief shot to establish that the vote did indeed fail and maybe to see Hel rant one last time. Similarily, if we're going to check back on other groups, like Team Evil, it'll probably be more of a cliffhanger, like what we got at the end of Book 2, rather than the check-ins we got in this back and the last one.

    Also, thanks to ella for pointing out that passage in GDGU, as I had forgotten about it.

    *Mind you, I don't think the council is really the climax of the book. To me, that was when Durkon defeated Durkon*.
