    I remember everyone who ever worshipped me.

    Epic is maybe the wrong word here, and it doesn't sound like much out of context. But it really drives home what it's like to be a god who's watched your creations die over and over and over.

    Yeah. It kinda puts the Godsmoot into perspective, the reason why they vote sound less like callousness and more like the words of someone who has gone fully numb in an attempt to distance themselves from this never-ending horror. And, on the other hand, it makes gods like Thor, who still maintain their principles after so long, seem even cooler.

    Exactly. Each of the gods has seen countless worlds die, and the "destroy the world themselves" scenario is their contingency plan for "rescuing" all of the currently-extant souls from being destroyed by the Snarl. The only new thing of note as compared to previous worlds is the existence of The Dark One with a whole new Quiddity, which makes possible the plan to regain the use of four-Quiddity constructs.

    This will never stop being awesome. If there is any one example which would make me want to play a paladin it's this one.

    There's many quotes which represent determination, resolution and dedication. But this is the one which seems to best demonstrate those traits in a paladin.

    I highly recommend reading How the paladin got his scar.
    My next dnd character is going to be a slightly modified version of O-Chul because of that story

    This one is not epic in the most common sense of the word, but gets me close to tears every time I read it.


    And, at last, one that has not been quoted here yet:

    "Lotsa things... worth doin... are na painless"
    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.
    (Wishing Joe, a low-powered superhero)

    I loved the moment that Redcloak used Disintegrate, normally one of the best options for getting rid of something you really want gone, and O-Chul just doesn't give a damn.

    O-chul's "No more lich, then" is pretty high on my list, too. Curt, effective, to the point. Xykon should be scared.

    They died free and striking a blow against their oppressors. I count that as a win.

    They died trapped like rats in an underground warren, having accomplished nothing. Or to put it another way, you and I have very different ideas about what constitutes "freedom" and "striking a blow."

    Given the alternative?

    I've worked in construction all my life, but eventually everything I've ever built will fall down or be demolished. Sometimes there is no winning option, and in that case how you lose says more about you than every win you ever achheved.

    There is honor in dying while fighting a hopeless battle when the alternative is to die as a slave to your enemy.

    Better than nothing.

    Anyways, my favorites.

    I see Xykon's speech on power has been well-covered. That's a good one. I also liked these bits:

    (As his anger further rips the tower apart)
    :"WHO JUST STOLE MY KILLS!?"

    and immediately following:

    : "That eye? That's your individual Idiot Tax. That's what this fiasco costs you personally. I want you to remember every moment of every day what happens if we sit on our lazy asses and rearrange the furniture in a ruined city instead of moving on the the next target. If I ever see you with more eyes than *******s, I'm sticking one in the other and giving your cape to the hobgoblin."

    Really serves to drive the point home that while Xykon may seem personable, at his core he's purified, distilled evil. He's epic-level for a reason, and these bits really underscore that.

    Not an OotS quote, but it speaks to what Brian was getting at:

    "No one spoke. There was no need. The threat of the Eldrazi presented a simple choice: lay down your weapons and die for nothing, or hold them fast and die for something."

    You were nice, and you deserved a lot better.

    Maybe not downright epic, but very true in many situations. It really captures the moment.

    The fact that RC actually used Osmium is something I find personally impressive. Though I do need to question how they actually can move.

    Well, Osmium is the densest element at what we would call "normal" temperature and pressure.

    The essence of OotS's awesomeness in one panel:

    "Screw this. I am not getting rubbed out by magic wielding hookers."
    "Must be some obscure prestige class."

    I want this - or a more condensed variation - on a shirt, together with FemRoy, V and Haley kicking in the door, as shown in the strip before that.

    Brilliant piece of comedy. Golden age of the saga. Still cracks me up whenever I re-read it. Funny as pooh.

    Psh. "Normal." Temperature and pressure aren't perpendicular to anything!

    Besides, using labels such as "normal" suggest that other temperatures and pressures are somehow wrong or unnatural, which then leads to a positive feedback loop of negative self-esteem.

    But what if Temperatur, pressure, three red lines drawn with blue ink and four red lines drawn with clear ink ALL need to be perpendicular?
