I don't see how this can go wrong, Thaco.


Also: hell border still seems to be missing.

SInce every angel's question had a catch, this is the best strategy. 50% he's safe at once.

Someone on twitter suggested, that Thaco might be doing this on purpose, to make it very hard for the angel.

Since she knows what his answer will be, she has to choose whether or not to condemn him by picking an appropriate question.

Not an easy choice for a being of good.

I assume this isn't "my answer to your question, whatever it is, will be NO", but rather "NO I'm not going to play your stupid question-asking game". I was kind of hoping for the previously theorized "Thaco just flawlessly answers the question", but this works too. Either way we get to see him being a badass and it's been too long.

Most obvious "no" would have been "no, please take the rules again".

I noticed there are no demon tendrils in the angel's realm anymore, also I just noticed in the previous comic the demon tendrils disappeared from the borders after Big Ears was sent back. So I guess his means there was no lasting corruption to the angel's realm.

In other matters, it seems that the Goblins always get the answer wrong (3 out of 3 so far) and so Thaco has decided to skip the pleasantries and gone straight to resolving the encounter without answering the question correctly.

I wonder if maybe Thaco's the only one thinking ahead here.

Why did they go through the dangerous ritual to make Fumbles their clan's fortuneteller? So that he could proclaim a chieftain who could then talk to their god about the upcoming end of the world.

But why not take a more direct approach and ask their god's angel to relay the message directly?

page got updated. and Indeed, the tendrils are not in the angel's realm anymore.

(OP has link to page image as first published.)

Edit: I finally got around to comparing what has been changed:
The hell's tendrils in the comic panel frame (for panels 1-5)
the hand marking on Complains of Names' face (panels 1-4)
the lighting from below on Trolls Mortals' face (panels 7,9)
Pawlush's eyes are now glowing again (panels 1-3)
some colour details corrected in the sparks of Thaco's landing (panel 6)
[/edit]

But it won't work. She has clearly said "if you refuse to answer, I accept it as i-dunno-answer". Which is the same as a wrong answer.

Thaco: Screw this bs, THIS time I'M asking YOU a question about YOUR character sheet!

Gellin: W-whaa? You - you don't get to s-

Thaco: What's the REAL reason you're stuck here doing this job?

G: I - I am NOT-

T: If you WON'T answer, that's the same as a wrong answer, and you have to let me go.

G: THAT'S-

T: Just tell me the truth, and you can send me to Hell. But, I'm guessing you REALLY don't want to do that...

G: I. I could Lie...

T: You could... but you're an Angel. A Perfect Goblin. Would a Perfect Goblin lie?

G: B - Y- Th- *looks at Thaco's character sheet again* rrrr... *sigh* Fine! *pulls white lever*

So, does it mean the hell strands are somehow linked to Big Ears (or more probably to the broken Prissian Axe)?
They are only visible with him in Troll Mortal's pocket space, and not when the other goblins are/were there.

Seems likely.

Which of course means the easiest solution to stopping the hell invasion is to throw the axe back into the hell itself so the Sacred no longer has the beacon to follow.

Or just throw it down the annihilation garbage dump the Angel had. Like ask him to jump and drop the Axe, then pull both levers.

I now have a scene in my head...

BE: *feeling a disturbance* Oh no, it's too late!

*Demon erupts from the ground*

Sacred: Finally, I shall consume this pla- *head touches a watch, appears in front of Gellin*

Gellin: ...Nope. *pulls the disposal lever*

That would be a nice and quick way.

Weeeell...

I think that the questions always were Bulls█t, and were tailor-made with an intend to destroy the goblins.

The angel asked Vorpal Kickasso for his name. Thunt said that he's a trangender, and if my friends are correct, there's no greater insult to a trans that calling by a Deadname.
Complains was asked if he would be a good chief: He WOULD NOT BE A GREAT CHIEF, no matter his stats: He's half possesed. A goblin chief, in permanent risk of being a demon and handle the control of the tribe to the forces of hell is a VERY BAD OPTION. Ask all the chelaxians, if you don't trust me!
And Big Ears was asked if he was a true hero: No True Hero would boast himself.

Not only that, the mega-goblin could have asked "What is your name" to Ears, but it didn't. It went for a loaded question.


So... I think that Thaco just saw through her ruse. He's older and wiser.

 ! Message from: RocketScientist
Please don't use the name Thunt or refer to the artist of Goblins as "he." That violates the forum rules. Doing so again will get you a warning. The artist who draws Goblins is called Ellipsis Stevens. Her pronouns are she/her. Thank you.

Welcome Souhiro!

Indeed, the use of deadnames should be avoided.
Elli is now a she, and while you may use Thuntonian world to refer to the worldbuilding inside the comic, "Tarol", "Hunt", "Thunt" are now deadnames.


But, @RS, I couldn't find it in the https://goblinsforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2 (Forum Rules post)
Nor in the corresponding viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1055 (Forum Rules Discussion thread).
We should clarify this.

So my theory... He waited until she said 'okay, here's your question', confused her, and got a really simple and stupid question to answer. I.e. tricking her into giving a very easy, non-trick question.

Do I think that actually happened? Nah. But it'd be funny if that was the angle the comic went with. If her question had been anymore specific like 'What did you say?' or 'Sorry, what was that?' then I'd be all on board for this theory. But with just 'What?' it's a little hard to justify that as her capital Q Question.
