From the depths of time comes a story of wicked villains, terrible secrets, and monumental screw-ups! The Order of the Stick: Start of Darkness reveals for the first time the secret origins of Xykon, Redcloak, the Monster in the Darkness, heck, even the demon cockroaches. Containing 112 pages of all-new never-published-online comics in dramatic black-and-white, Start of Darkness is full of villainy goodness for any fan of the OOTS.

    Learn such secrets as:
  • How did Xykon and Redcloak meet?
  • How did Xykon became a lich?
  • Why did Eugene Greenhilt swear revenge on Xykon?
  • Whatever happened to Lirian's Gate, anyway?
  • How did Redcloak discover the Monster in the Darkness?
  • Why on earth does Redcloak put up with Xykon's crap???

The Order of the Stick: Start of Darkness is presented primarily in black-and-white, similar to our bestselling On the Origin of PCs, but features a special full-color insert detailing the Secret Lore of the Crimson Mantle, in the popular crayon format first seen in No Cure for the Paladin Blues. Featuring introductions by the author and Miko Miyazaki, paladin of the Sapphire Guard, this book is a flat-out must-have for fans of the OOTS plotline, as it fills in missing details in the story of who these evildoers are and why they do evil. Wallowing in unrepentant villainy has never been this much fun (legally)!

Heart of Darkness

*****

Although there are some really funny bits I must say that Xykon is a very disturbing Evil villain.

Beneath all the witty jabs, sarcasm, humor, and theology, there is a very well crafted narrative delineating one soul's journey into darkness...but it may not be who you think.

Oh, and Keith gets what he deserves...
