    Belkar did a good deed and it paid back. Hooray!

    Edit: although Durkon likely could have dominated it from a tactical perspective. Still, at least Belkar did something.

    Wild Empathy for the win! And now Belkar gets to contribute to the fight in a more satisfying way.

    Wow. That was unexpected…

    Hey, I'm posting on the first page!? Let me be the first to note that Belkar is exposed, in a fragile state, and has a prophecy on his head. Protection from arrows only protects from arrows…

    So the song runs on, with shift and change,
    Through the years that have no name,
    And the late notes soar to a higher range,
    But the theme is still the same.
    Man's battle-cry and the guns' reply
    Blend in with the old, old rhyme
    That was traced in the score of the strata marks
    While millenniums winked like campfire sparks
    Down the winds of unguessed time. -- 4th Stanza, The Bad Lands, Badger Clark

    I think these may be the last few moments before Belkar's death.

    But if they are, he's going out in grand style.

    The maniacal laughter was a great touch too.

    I'd love to see how an Owl's Wisdom spell would affect Belkar now...

    Wo... wow. Did not see that coming. And it works on so many levels. It's badass, it's heartwarming, and it quips on Belkar usually being the most un-rangery ranger you've ever seen.

    If I had a hat, it would be off for you, Mr Giant.

    ... okay, not the dinosaur I was expecting them to ride out on, but a masterful wild empathy check there. Gotta love the Scruffster cautiously crawling along the dinosaur's back, too.
