    Ah, so it is. And nice to see that Tarquin is honouring his promise to Malack and not going all out against Durkon.

    Also, I approve of Thor's litany there...

    If this is Durkon's time, it is not Malack or Tarquin who shall deliver the blow.

    And I liked Tarquin's retort.

    Great comic! I loved the cleavage of the ponytail.

    KilKil: paralyzed it seems.
    Qarr: gone, apparently voluntarily.
    Sabine: banished for 24 hours.
    Zzditri: overwhelmed by a volley of arrows and playing defense for the moment.

    Malack is left on his own to figure out how to get back with the party, is he able to get through the stone surrounding the doorway?
    Tarquin has stopped fighting Durkon to respect Malack's wishes.
    Nale and Belkar are still presumably fighting each other.
    Roy cleaves the mummies in twain.

    That leaves Elan and Mr. Scruffy unaccounted for (other than V and the bird of course). What will Tarquin do now? Help his son or go one on one v Roy?

    That's a nice view of Roy's Cleavage there.

    I wonder what exactly triggers the green energy? A critical hit, or Roy's own emotions?

    IIRC it also appeared when he was fighting Sabine in Cliffport.

    Edit: It did. Looks like its activated by his emotions...

    Roy's attack there looks a lot like Link's spin attack, with the whole energy thing, and all

    Great comic, as always.

    I don't understand why Roy thinks that they would raised now when they weren't before.

    Awesome panel with Roy at the end, and it seems like Tarquin's making good on his promise to hold back.

    Also, I'm still thinking that the mummies were foreshadowing with their echos. So who needs to knock on what for safety?

    Isn't starmetal supposed to deal extra damage to outsiders, with the undead part being an addition of Rich's part? The green glow probably indicates when the extra damage is being dealt.

    No, silly, that just proves that Sabine is really a Vampire-Succubus in disguise.

    So cool to get to see Roy finally putting that +5 Greatsword of Undead Kersploding to such effective use.

    Roland is actually correct. Starmetal does deal additional damage to outsiders on the material plane.

    Which brings up the question:

    Additionally, now that I've thought about it. Roy has a +5 effective adamantine sword that deals extra damage to things... nice sword.

    So Roy just great-cleaved through 5 mummies. That is Awesome!!!

    If only there were an evil side that depended heavily on the undead for him to unleash this against later in the story . . .
    I gave up fighting, and stabbing and bludgeoning and stealing and bar-brawls and wenches . . . and it was the worst 10 rounds of my life - Jerry the Country & Western Bard.

    Great strip as always. Totally cracked up at the end when I realized what the title meant.

    I'm really wondering what's going on with V. And i'm really hoping that Elan gets his plan he mentioned for beating Tarquin in soon (it came up a few strips into the Windy Canyon.)

    Interesting that Tarqin just used subdual damage on the dwarf rather than take him out completely. Seems like he can take most of the party by himself, impressive.

    I believe that the closest rules-explanation we can get for the Green-Flashy-Thingy right now is "XdY Extra Damage on Critical Hits".

    Also, great comic. I'm happy to see Tarquin honoring his promise.
