    Heh, being reptilian is probably only reason why this dragon isn't wearing a monocle and stroking a white cat.

    Finally some high-level spellslinging, however, I missed the arrogance in Vaarsuvius character this time...

    He even fled without a long:

    I will for now astray this battle-field to be certain I will be able to overcome you in a nt-so-distant past as to the fact that once we will meet once again, you can be certain I will be far more prepared for a challenge as the likes of you, but for now you are just a waste of my magical talents and an encumbarance too my research, seeing this I will not waste my time on you henceforth....etc.....

    Nice. Great moment for V. I see an epipheny coming.

    Also, I think it's a lot more likely that it's a relative of the other black dragon.

    That dragon is my new favorite villain. And new proof that the dragon is Disintegrated Dragon's mother: Quarr refers to it as "her". Apparently imps can tell male and female dragons apart. And V is so dead.

    Yet again someone rubs in how V's powers can be completely useless

    Plus the pointy-eared monkey. Ouch.

    Yeah, this comic kicks the "dragon = Kubota's true form" theory in the nuts a few times. It also utterly kills the "dragon = polymorphed V's mate" theory, since an Anti-Magic Shell would cancel Polymorph.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    How many times do I have to say it was a unlikely theory? I knew I never should have mentioned it.

    The still most likely theory is that the dragon somehow is related (maybe not by blood but still) to the black dragon some hundred comics ago.

    I don't mind the sometimes long time between updates, but the fast pacing of the last few is awesome.

    And poor V, your magic desertes you once more!
    I am looking for fanfiction of the Culture or other books in the same vein. Any Ideas? PM me or post here.

    Well, that was fast.

    I predict the dragon will best V easily only to be tapped on the shoulder by an Infernal. Or Sabine will show up.

    OR V will use Wall of Force.


    Also, isn't it Antimagic Field, not Anti-Magic Shell?

    Rapid Fire posting! Awesome!

    I had a session that went something like this. The dragon won though, so I'm hoping that isn't the case.

    Magic set of four words for Qarr's help and eventually ultimate power?

    Heh. I've said before that one of the meanest, nastiest, ugliest monsters in 3.X is a dragon that knows how to cast anti-magic shell. V is going to have to do some really, really fast talking now.

    Oh, and just to get this out of the way:

    Argument: Ancient black dragons cast as 11th-level sorcerors. It shouldn't have access to 6th-level spells.

    Counter-Argument: It said it has "a passion for the arcane arts... even more so than others of [its] kind." So it probably took a level in sorceror.

    There we go.

    No, V is probably level 14. Don't forget bonus spells from Intelligence and specialization.

    Yay Dragon!

    She rocks.

    I'm rooting for her.

    V has become a very nasty and quite lawful evil person of late.

    While her? She's a mother fighting for a murdered child.

    Yes, it was murder. They walked into someone else's home and killed the occupants and took their stuff.

    Its a strange fallacy of D&D.

    Honestly, the phrase "you are as skilled as my information has led me to believe." Suggests to me that there is something going on here besides revenge, indeed, this is the the way Evil potential employers seem to talk before offering a job, or while testing an opponents skill for other reasons.

    Kind of a shot in the dark though.

    It was Anti-Magic Shell in 2nd Ed., but that sure isn't a 2nd Ed. black dragon.
