    Snake tail!

    Also, lesson to be learnt: never turn something someone helped you with against them if they have any cynicism in them.

    I thought that was going to be a moral challenge to Durkon for a moment (I helped you when it was actively disadvantageous to me) and then... yeah. Spell backdoors. Heh. Sneaky Malack.

    Well, Durkon getting munched on was a leading thought.

    So...Malack intended to vamp Durkon from the very beginning?

    It's official.

    I am impressed.

    Oh no. This cliffhanger is killing me with the suspense even more than Belkar's vamp-out cliffhanger. Yikes!

    First Malack's alignment, and now his legs. With a few more comics any question we ever had about Malack will be answered.

    No legs. Yuan-ti?

    This also severely curtails any possible aid, because Durkon won't heal from the damage as easily as Malack.

    Well, Malack has no legs, and Durkon is in pretty serious trouble. I'd suspect this is the end for him, but, as we've been shown in the past few pages, speculating on events at this point is completely pointless. There's always one more twist coming. I eagerly await whatever happens (hopefully) tomorrow!

    Woah...And I thought people were wrong when they said Malack wouldn't teach even a new friend a spell that could be used against him, but it seems he's a LOT more similar to Tarquin that we thought.

    Also, I am quite thrilled by the fact ever since a few strips, the question we ask ourselves at the end of a strip is not ''Will something turn the tables'' but more ''Will something NOT turn the tables''. Does this one finally seal the outcome?

    Ooooh so he had coiled his entire tail under that robe. That.... Actually explains a lot. Like why his tail kept inexplicably changing lengths from comic to comic.

    Possible. It seems to fit him best, anyways. An abomination, maybe.

    I'm wondering if there's any signifigance in the bite Malack's using. With Belkar, he chomped down on the head, but here, it looks like he's going for the "standard" neck bite.

    I'm surprised he could pronounce the counterspell. Maybe he uses his forked tongue?

    Also, I love how the Giant manages to answer questions in the most intense possible manner. Awesome.

    More likely a legless Yuan-ti half-blood or abomination- Naga's generally don't have arms, either.

    Yuan-ti would fit... but it runs afoul of the OGL/product ID thing, so the above stated naga is much more likely, since they're mythological entities.

    Either way, he gets a bonus to grapples, I think.
