This is the thread for discussion of the Order of the Stick plot, characters, etc. We have a separate thread for discussing game rules and mechanics. Excessive rules discussions here may be thumped as off-topic.

He was petrified or something... I remember Umbrella-Guy having tea with him during the fall of Azure City.
Do you highlight everything looking for secret messages?
O-Chul

He's one of the paladins that knows where the other Gates are. (assuming I remember right).

Redcloak and the lich don't know where last gates are right now.

Yes, and he's become a true butt-monkey ever since he got paralyzed by Xykon before he could destroy the gate. On the plus side, if he's been paralyzed for over a month, he's probably dead by now (besides, whoever heard of a single paralyzation spell that could last that long?
Your funny quote here! (Maybe)
Was?
Maybe it had a day/caster level duration and got metamagiked up to week/caster level?

Still, he should've starved to death (or more mercifully, been killed by a fall or explosion).

Well, it looks like he wasn't paralyzed the whole time.
A lich like Xykon's Paralyzing Touch is permanent until he dispells it. So, xykon must have dropped the spell/SLA for the sake of torturing O-Chul.

Xykon is totally cheating. Any fair gambling needs the stipulation that you're gambling on the state of the victim after he escapes the deathtrap, since obviously you can't just let him run away afterwards.

Well, Xykon is Chaotic Evil

Don't ask me, I just fix wicks.

Bahahahahaha. I just came here to mention that!

Also, panel 3 seems to be a Take That against "Incarnum users". Whatever those are.

I looked up Incarnum users. Some kind of magic user that uses souls to prepare spell-like effects. They must be underpowered.

He's clearly too stupid to realize he isn't supposed to help O-Chul. Lucky paladin.

Ah. It eats with telekinesis. Couldn't have been that easy, I suppose.

That's a very odd way of resolving this crisis.

But I'm always a fan of the "accomplishing through stupidity what you can't accomplish intentionally" paradox.

558 strips and this comic still never fails to surprise me. Well, hardly ever.

But is Elan really that stupid? He's been smarter in recent strips.
Yes, I'm better than you
Elan is a servant to the plot; he's always exactly as stupid (or as smart) as the story and/or the joke need him to be.

Don't forget "Bitten by a radioactive ninja".

Right, either: a) I haven't been reading the strips throughly enough up to now or b) The comic has gotten insanely more funny just recently.
