* He has been described as "he", but that doesn't preclude him being FTM {{Transsexual}}. Which would kind of be awesome, actually. IMO there are both too few FTM characters in popular fiction, and not enough trans characters for whom their gender identity isn't the main focus of their characterisation.

Okay, this is stretching a little, but; If you look at the circumstances of her death; She was a lawful neutral or lawful evil character (I can't remember if her alignment was ever given, but she obeys a master and he's evil, so non-lawful and good alignments are out of the question), however she betrayed her master (a chaotic act). As a result she might end up in the pit and become a demon. Since her sin (and reason for betraying her master) was lust, a succubus would make sense. Alternatively, if she ends up in a LE afterlife she could still come back as an equivlent devil (I can't remember if there's an equivelent, maybe a Lilin[[note]]From TableTopGames/{{Pathfinder}}[[/note]] or an Erinyes, although their fluff might not quite fit). Either way, she could end up as a counterpart (or replacement) for Sabine.

** My interpretation was that [=PCs=] were individuals with killing skills far beyond normal people--in our terms, people capable of taking combat-oriented classes like "Fighter" or "Sorceror" rather than NPC ones like "Aristocrat." Basically, they're {{Graceling}}s. (Also of note is that whatever it is, it's apparently hereditary.)

* Notably, the only elves in OOTS with known binary genders (and not following the -ius name pattern) are Zz'dtri (who, as a drow, may not count) and Lirian.

The three hooded demon guys are greek gods, trying to secure Earth from interference by people and gods from the OotS universe. D&D are the true laws of the universe, and exists on Earth because the Gates are failing to keep the OotS universe out.

** This seems likely. After that conversation, Tarquin knew he had nothing to use to talk Laurin out of killing [[spoiler: Nale]] herself. By delivering the killing blow himself he not only has the mercy in sparing him from definite torture from a high-level psion but also cements his 'Villain' status with the OotS, who were in viewing distance but likely not hearing distance. It's also clear afterwards that doing it gave him no personal satisfaction; he seems upset at having to kill him.

* Don't stop there! Celia as She-Hulk! Snarl as Galactus and Serini as Silver Surfer! Vaarsuvius [[OneMoreDay jeopardizes his marriage making a deal with a demonic entity]]!... okay, not that last one.

* That makes a lot of sense. Serini's rationale was to use Kraagor's strength to guard the gate. But if they were involved, romantically or otherwise, in a relationship, then it would make sense to combine Kraagor's sheer strength with Serini's cunning. Even better would be if
Serini was guarding what ''looks'' like the gate, while the statue is the real deal.

In the strip where the origin of the gates and the Order of the Scribble is discussed, we see that the last fight to happen was against a rift in the open air, not in a cave. When the Order of the Stick was in Girard's pyramid, one of the places they checked was Girard's statue (although only because of a joke made by one of the deceased Draketooths). What if Kraagor's Gate is actually hidden ''within'' Kraagor's statue? After all, Serini was a rogue - it would fit that this was not just Kraagor's Gate, but Serini's too, so it would be a double bluff: make everyone think the Gate is in one of the caves, protected by the sheer power of all those monsters Serini had brought, while the Gate is actually protected by being hidden in a statue no one will pay much attention to.

Because why the hell not? Also, the fate of the Western continent will be decided by a duel between [[spoiler: [[CoolVsAwesome Shoulderpads Guy vs That Guy With The Halberd]] ]].

*That's...certainly [[EpilepticTrees a]] [[VoodooShark theory]]. Except that the IFCC are clearly established to be fiends, and Greek mythology is not the only significant mythological pantheon on Earth. In fact, outside of the West they're mostly irrelevant. And also Jossed. Burlew has said the world inside the snarl isn't the real world.

**While I do support increased presence of transgendered characters in fiction, I am unsure how that would happen in a D&D setting. Any ideas?
