And that's the last we saw of Discord himself for a while.

Which is probably for the best, just for the health of the comic and community. I mean, even the show likely wouldn't survive unscathed through an entire year of nonstop Discord episodes. That's why they cart him out only a few times a season. That and I imagine Mr. de Lancie is a rightfully expensive hire.

OK, not sure what is going on anymore ... and note sure I want to know.
Between what everyone read, what the author intended, what some people really understood ... At least the comments was lively and passionnate.

But as Newbiespud said, DiscorDM leaving for a while is probably for the best.

I've been avoiding the comments for quite a while, now. It was just too exhausting seeing the same people post the same stuff each and every update.

This story arc brought out some of the best and the worst geek/nerd behaviour I've seen in the last year or so.

I suppose that means that DiscorDM did his work on a meta level as well.

I agree, it definitely brought out the best and the worst in people. It really changed my perception of at least part of the community surrounding this comic, and not necessarily for the better. While I realize it was only a very small and very vocal minority of readers, I find myself just kind of scanning the comments most of the time these days and sometimes just skipping them altogether.

I think Discord is the core definition of "That One Player". The one that causes debating controversies around the gaming table and never gets a consensus on just what is up with them.

Pretty much agreeing with you, Digo. DiscordDM is a mystery wrapped in an enigma concealed in a puzzle.

It's arguably a clearer read when he's playing Discord - since we know DiscordDM knows Discord is a crafty and manipulative villain and DiscordDM is trying to play him accordingly at least. (If that makes any sense whatsoever).

It is interesting how in this arc, Discord has held up a mirror for us to see how our own varying experiences have colored our perceptions of him. I would say that is some skillful writing to create such a varied spectrum of responses.
