    Shweet stuff! I liked the Chemistry Elementals. Its one of those things that we've asked at the gaming table, ourselves.

    BUT, and for this I say "You are one sharp fella, Rich" I have never seen anyone bring up the point that fire is not an "element" (as we in MODERN times understand them...)

    Fun AND Informative! In-Fun-Taining...
    Later!

    Kinda meh for me. This wasn't very funny or original, and it seems like overemphasizing a plot point.

    That was unexpected, but totally awesome. I too have always wondered why don't they use real elements.

    As a former Chem major, hats off to Redcloak!
    I think there is a fallacy in lighter round objects traveling farther then heavier ones though, but Redcloak did'nt say he passed physics...

    He brought down the walls in the first volley? This bodes ill for the defenders. We can guess there's now five elemental-sized holes in the wall, and the wall defenders are going to be tied up fighting those big elementals for a while.

    Who was it who said fortifications evened a 3-to-1 fight out? They may want to adjust their calculations.

    Now I have a precedence for real elementals.

    Maybe my DM will let me have a uranium elemental now.

    Loved the Dolby ref.

    I'm trying so hard not to count the casualties for Azure City(five almost certain in this one!).

    I wonder how much damage those elementals could have taken from the impact(if any). Anything to even the odds.

    Love the comment about fire not really being an element. I've always felt the same! Also, props to Redcloak for having researched his own spell!

    Hopefully the convicts or the other high level character will be able to take them down before they cause to much damage.

    Heh, that was bloody brilliant. Now, I would very much like the stats on the titanium elemental.

    If you are looking for moment-to-moment rules accuracy from this comic, you probably should stop reading. You are guaranteed to be continually frustrated and disappointed, because I don't care about that at all.
