    Wow, I checked just in time. Durkula going full attack on Lauren made my day.

    Stop justifying your plot twists

    Dang, that's what I spent the whole last week doing in the #930 thread...


    BTW, I like that this comic features both Durkons.

    Ok, this was fun to watch. And it seems like only Tarquin has personal history with Julio. I wonder if that'll change things with Laurin.

    An angry Vampire Durkon is pretty scary..

    Well, THAT happened. Go Julio go :D Frankly, at this point, Tarquin's only options seem to retreat or get skewered. (My soft spot for him as a character would rather the former, but I don't mind either way)
    Quick note, apparently Laurin also had a backup getaway spell. And what was Durkon's spell/attack there?

    Probably just the standard vampire slam attack. He's said a few times now that he's out of spells.

    I dunno what I love more, Roy's Calm acceptance of Elan just assuming the Order would fail ahead of time, or "Stop justifying your plot twist retroactively!"

    I think Durkon was just using his energy drain attack.

    I never realised you could perform a disarm action using a magic carpet as a weapon. Rule of awesome for the win.

    A slam to the tune of 2 negative levels.

    Fixed for accuracy.

    Okay, that was great. The second Sending might be Elan's finest moment, Julio's puns were a cut above, and yay Durkon doing something!

    I'm assuming the mechene is providing shade for durkon to not be dustified?

    I didn't notice it at first either, but she reappears some distance away, so it's some sort of short-range dimension doorish escape psionic power (i'm not really familiar with psionic rules).

    Thumbs up Re: OOTS #931 - The Discussion Thread

    I love the meta-conversation - the genre-savvy "unconventional" hero chooses to defy the convention of the genre. I think you broke the fourth wall there, giant. And I don't mean "broke the fourth wall" as in addressing the audience, but really "broke" it.

    Great comic.
    Aren't all of us "not-nale"?

    Yep, you can see the darker sand under him, V and Laurin compared to the more distant background.

    Yay!

    Things I love about My Two Dads:

    1. Blackwing in panel 4 gets an "Awww!" from me.

    2. Scoundrél's puns are way more sophisticated than Elan's. Bonus points for precision pun in last panel.

    3. Seeing Laurin *pop* way off in the distance.

    4. Seeing Elan explain the nuance of his narrative mastery to Roy while resisting the "Now we're blood brothers! Hooray!" that I just know is there under the surface.


    Am worried about Belkar, and Bloodfeast the Extreminator, though.
