    It's up now! Hooray!

    ... and it's been confirmed that the spell Durkon was learning is Mass Death Ward. And his accent prevents it from working. I like it!

    That was awesome! (I'm kinda wondering if Durkon really will get something from Thor, happy to see his reappearance)

    Indeed. Of all the callback jokes that had to strike the OOTS, it had to be this one.

    The cleric's feather fall line was one of the funnier jokes for me in a while. Love the new strip.

    So what was the last joke supposed to be? The other continent being too far away for Thor to hear properly?

    So he spent ALL THAT TIME researching it, but he needs to pronounce it slowly and carefully or it doesn't work? This is why all spellcasters have American accents.

    I looove how Durkon is just nonchalantly surprised at Z's return, not the rest of the Linear Guild. Basically the readers' reaction.

    This one's pretty funny even by OOTS standards, between Feather Fall, the startling return of Zz'dtri, and the holey words. (Although it was even funnier when I thought Elan considered "ditch" to be the holier version of... a less holy word.)

    Well, with Thor's customer service things could have turned out much worse for Durkon. Like interpreting that as "Mass Death Word," like some obscure Power Word: Kill that annihilates all things in an area.

    Well my guess in the first thread was backwards. He spoke in his accent and failed the spell instead of speaking clearly and getting a boost.

    New flaw. Heavy Aceent: 5% chance of divine casting failure

    Just like a cleric. Using flaws to make a strong class even stronger. Tsk Tsk Tsk.

    A wizards feather fall stops fall damage. A cleric just heals the damage away.

    A wizard could save a buddy from fall damage by casting Feather Fall. Clerics generally can't cast that spell, so the best they can do is heal up the damage afterwards.

    ...or he spoke clearly and Thor 'n them got so used to his heavy accent that that assumed he was pronouncing something they'd never heard of.

    It's a heal spell. A "cleric's feather fall" just means letting them fall and then healing them.
