    WOOHOO! Durkon is still gonna help them! And Z...didn't really expect him to snuff it yet, but that was a heck of a kill.

    Love the comic, Giant!

    Dang, I was hoping Z would last longer... Put my stomach in a knot seeing Durkon kill Z that merclilessly....

    Awesome chapter as usual Giant, amaizing you can give such emotions over and over again. ^_^

    That dealt with a couple of Linear Guild problems rather handily. And we have a brand new Durkon to make things better. Hurrah.

    Once again Durkon's lack of ranks in Knowledge Religion hurts him.


    Or rather Roy in this case.

    WHAT?! BUT!!! No!!! Zz'dtri! Why!

    Too many lives have been lost I'm gonna' miss Z most of all, he'll always be the best LG member to me. At least Durkon's gonna' try to help the Order out. I kind of hope he sticks with them but I don't know how likely it is.

    R.I.P Zz'dtri. You'll always be the best the LG ever had in my opinion. 'Tis a shame you weren't defeated by V in an epic battle of wizards.

    Laughed out loud at the energy drain. So ZZ'ditri is dead now, and Durkon is back with the team. The OOTS owe Nale a HUGE thanks.

    Didn't know vampires energy drained on touch. Malack didn't do that, did he? He could heal Elan, for example.

    Okaaay. That was a rather abrupt end for Zz'dtri. Well, Durkon's back to normal-ish, at least.

    That was a remarkably sudden demise for Z!

    Guess, Durkon hasn't learned to turn off his Energy Drain powers yet forgot that he now spontaneously Inficts instead of Cures.. Whoops.

    And, yep. He's evil. Remarkably so, if make my guess.

    That's interesting. I was assuming he damaged Roy because he was evil now, so his cure spells became inflict spells. I didn't think of the energy drain angle. I wonder which it was?

    Edit: Looking back, I think it was an inflict spell. I think that's what the 'reverse polarity' refers to.

    Nah, that only happens if the vampire kills you by draining your CON to zero.

    I guess Vampire Durkon forgot that since he is evil his spontaneous spell conversion no longer produces cure spells.

    But that being said, he is free willed now. He doesn't have to be evil. Why is he letting his vampirism affect his personality? So why isn't Vampire Durkon good now?

    Good to have (a version) of Durkon back! I hope it isn't as ill-fated as I have a sneaking suspicion it might be.

    I don't think that's an energy drain. I think Durkon is simply trying to spontaneously convert one of his spells to a Cure spell, but since he's Evil now, he gets an Inflict spell instead.

    Also, man, this was anticlimactic.

    He healed him by touching him with the staff, if I remember correctly.

    I thought his spontaneous cure spells just turned into inflict spells because he turned into an evil cleric, and he did not remember that before he used one of his regular memorized spells in this manner. I don't think it was an energy drain.
