    Looks like Roger did, in fact, bait an Etelarche Curse on purpose. Except he has no plan for using it yet. That's a heck of a thing to take Shaensigin's word for.

    You missed the comic's previous link's hovertexts. Added them to your spoiler.

    Today's:

    If You Can Make Him Disappear
    you can protect the innocent
    prove your virtue
    know the taste of righteousness
    hate will make us free

    I love it when the comic goes meta with the reality bending. The altered links at the top are trippy.

    The altered links at the top are a nice touch and one I would have missed.

    Lady Ilganyag as bird seems certain. Is there any reason to believe fish is a whale instead of, say, a shark or a mermaid? And I really hope tree isn't the wandering root Duane burned back in chapter 1.

    Looks like the curse caught up to Mallory and made him hate Roger. Did they miscalculate and the khert-fire ended before they expected? Either way, Duane can cast again and Mallory is about to want to see Roger dead. I don't expect Mallory to walk out of here alive, which will leave Roger with little left to live for except bringing down Alderode. So submitting himself to Ruck's venom will start looking more enticing.

    Holy **** , the current four page update is insane. I'm ****ing speechless.

    We finally understand why Roger decided to accept Ruck's embrace. It's heartbreaking and I honestly understand Roger. Killing Mallory after everything is just (GitP needs a cry emoji). And from what I gather the worse is yet to come.

    I think Ashley mentioned that this is precisely the case. Duane destroyed a valuable actor, trying to escape its guts.

    Yeah, this is even more painful and traumatic than I predicted. Amazing. The Etalarche curse is pretty terrifying.

    What's tragic here is that Mallory wasn't just wildly frothing at the mouth while trying to strangle Roger. He's rational, speaking in coherent sentences, and quite clearly laying out how he manipulated Roger the entire time in order to accomplish his objectives.

    The fact that Mallory then tried to strangle Roger - thereby ruining the entire plan - can be attributed to the curse, sure. Before things went bananas Mallory was in favor of going to the Black Tongues in order to keep Roger sane and alive. So there's no homicidal loathing there pre-curse. But the logic of everything else is too consistent to be thought up on the spur of the moment. How else would Mallory know of the Salt Lizard, and have ties to Cresce? Why else would he have sought out Roger in particular?

    Ouch.

    Damn. And he didn't even harm it trying to escape, Sette just got greedy and thought it had treasure.

    So, Duane has killed one and dropped a ceiling on another. I can't imagine he'll be happy when he learns just how involved Ilganyag is with the first silver bomb. All he needs now is to mess with whatever's fish doing and he'll have gotten 4/4

    I read this differently. Everyone else already kinda hated Roger, so the curse just had to push a little for them to go "normal hate" -> "frothing berserker rage". But Vampire really did love him, and the curse had to reverse his entire outlook. We just watched a man being magically compelled to rationalize away an entire decades-long relationship and die hating "with clarity" the man he truly loved. I find that more tragic than if it were all a lie from the beginning.

    Ultimately we'll never know, because neither will Roger. So he'll spend the rest of his life wondering if the man he loved had really hated him and only strung him along.
