    One day, I hope to be able to play a wizard as good as V is. One day...
    "...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

    Nice. Very, very nice. Amusingly, this mirrors almost exactly what happened in my game about a month ago. Way to read my mind, Giant!

    Since all of the "Mass Stat Increase" spells affect one target/level, we now know that Vaarsuvius must be 13th level.

    Ok, can we take on vote on whether or not we should kill the first person to say that enlarging people like that would not work due to the square/cube law?

    13th you mean? There are 13 soldiers, and it's 1 target/level...

    I think you meant 13, since he only enchanted 13. FP!

    More archers would be nice though.

    That being said, we finally see some Hobgoblin losses.

    But then there's nothing much V can do; Xykon is, like, several levels over V, and those are high-level spells we are talking about. In that case they are screwed anyways.
