    Those born again types are usually pretty out there with their faith.

    Haley has an interesting interpretation of the tenets of Thor-worship.

    Knowing this comic, she might not be that far off.

    That was the best about-faced cover story and delivery ever. "I hate grooming!" is absolute gold. I haven't seen Durkon look this theologically indignant since Banjo became the god of the orcs rather than Thor.

    So what do you think Malak eats? Perhaps some variant of Soylent Green?

    Is anyone else wondering about Malak's eating habits?

    Durkon should be happy. Haley's last religion was worshiping Banjo. She also seems to know all the important parts of his religion. Overall, this is a big step up for her religiously.

    Great comic giant, I love how even Durkon has to admit that Haley is telling the truth about being converted to Thor-ism (?)

    Also this has to be the best punchline by Durkon so far

    :Malack:As a cleric it is always nice when you get to see the impact you make on your flock"
    "Aye, an' I'm considerin' makinˇ a more hammer-shaped one presently"

    His speech balloons are the wrong color. All undead in the comic have black balloons with white text, to the point where Xykon's balloons change color when he becomes a lich. Malack has white balloons. Therefore, he is not undead.

    He probably has a Constitution of 4 or something as a result of being albino. Raistlin had the same deal with the special diet, don't forget.

    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.

    As Lawful as Durkon is, I'll look forward to seeing him trying to require Haley to maintain her new faith. Should be good for some laughs.

    Yea, let's all worship Thor !

    Seriously, Haley, that was fantastic as a joke, but as a cover it's pretty thin. I'd be really surprised if Tarquin falls for it. Plus, Durkon and Elan are bound to drop more hints, in case the ones they gave weren't enough. Anyway, keep the party going !

    Now see that's very possible. He might even just eat humans, which wouldn't technically make him a cannibal at all.

    I dont see any issue with her being a worshipper of thor. I mean she is going with elan which probably makes her a good thief. So that part of the alignment checks out. Durkon is the abberition when it comes to being LAWFUL and a thor cleric.

    I could certainly see Haley as a Thor follower. Dwarves and humans be different in their worshipping style anyway.

    Didn't remember about that one... maybe it is time to do an archive treck.

    And while it is good, I much prefer Roys line on that particular comic

    Technically, it's not lying. Just like when the Order was in Azure City's prisons.

    gotta love technical truths like that

    on Malack though, i wouldn't be that surprised if he was secretly an undead of some type. he IS a cleric of a god of death.
