    Looks like the "Thor's responsible" predictions were right after all.

    So, how will he talk his way out of this one? Also, how much does Thor know, or is it just a random storm because he's Thor on a bender again?

    I'm liking the whole HPoH dynamic a lot more then I thought I would. I hope that it goes for a while longer.

    Gee, it's almost like the gods were trying to tell them something!

    Can't wait to see how/if they're gonna get out of this one. You know, there's an easy way to get rid of him right now: chuck him in the ocean for three rounds.

    Nice, I wake up and decide to check the site, and there's a new comic.

    Admittedly, I was thinking it would take a bit longer for anyone to get suspicious of Durkon. Can't wait to see how much they can figure out, though...

    Ooo, interesting.

    The storm doesn't precisely reveal that Durkula's possessed and not actually under Durkon's soul's control, BUT anybody with some intelligence (i.e. Roy, anyone but Elan) can at least surmise from the storm that Thor is displeased with the abomination-of-life that stands before them. That's a pretty reasonable interpretation.

    They may then have to make a tough choice - let Durkula continue un-living (and keep suffering bad weather) or improve their weather conditions by staking Durkula (presuming that's all that's needed to appease Thor, which seems reasonable).

    Still don't think Durk's going down yet. He'll probably try to talk his way out of it.

    Im honestly a little surprised that the HPoH didn't prepare for this eventuality. Granted, its been all of 3 days since it took over, but still. It seems like Hel and it have a plot already worked out.

    Hah! I initially thought this was the High Priest's gambit to land the ship in dwarven lands, but if Thor's getting involved on his own this should be very interesting.

    And that's quite a nice gloat Durkon's got there.

    Well, it's about time Thor figured out what's happened. Looks like he's not happy.

    Is the crew eyeing Durkon because they think he's causing the storm, or wondering why he isn't stopping it?

    Is it just me, or does that ship mechanic look like Kaylee Frye?

    This fact made me far more excited than I should be right now.

    Even if Roy et al. are convinced Durkula is no longer the dwarf with the brogue we know and love, that doesn't mean they are in a position to do anything about it. Until and unless they can bring Durkon back, I wouldn't expect Roy to do anything directly.

    Kind of hoping durkula gets zapped. Enough to the point that the party notices that he and Thor aren't on good terms at the moment

    I'm betting the HPoH/Durkula will be able to fast-talk itself out of this one. I worry for Durkon, but enjoy the plotline centred on him...

    Durkon is a high-level priest of Thor. They're probably expecting him to control weather it away or something, or just provide an explanation for the storm.
    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    oh no, I don't think Durkula's down and out yet. he just is in a bit of a sticky situation. I think they will assume that he just needs to do some atonement or something and he will say "ok, I'll do that" then pray to Hel to somehow stifle or work around Thor.....

    I don't think Durkula is in too much trouble here, though it would be great if he were. The Order will probably intuit that Thor is not happy at the transformation of his priest, but it would be a bit of a leap to equate that with 'Outsider posing as our friend'. Moving right along though, thanks Giant!

    Thor may have caused the storm, but I wouldn't call him responsible.

    Well, maybe in this particular instance, but not in general.

    At the very least, theyre probably wondering why he wasn't asking Thor to please stop shooting them with lightning on their world-saving quest.

    The wind is blowing the rain to the left, but the hair, clothes and Adad's holy symbol to the right.

    Neat trick, that.

    Edit: This art discrepancy is in panels 1, 5 and 8, but not in panels 3 or 6, where the direction of clothing/hair/etc. being blown by the wind matches the direction that the rain is being blown by the wind.

    I really hope Durkula is a short lived minor villain after all. I really, really do. Cause that sub-plot is gonna drive me crazy if it's not a short one.
