    Dang, go Roy! So maybe he DID take berserker rage or whatever its called as a feat. I wonder what their relative hp levels are now? Also, will durkula start trying to run out the clock now that he seems to be losing?

    Well. Damn.

    I guess he did heal himself after all. This certainly IS weird-- I don't think we can totally blame it on the sword, either. I'm not sure what it IS, but I'm not sure it's just the power of starmetal.

    Ouch, what a beating.

    Though now that the HPoH is away, he might have enough time to recover. Hurry Roy!

    Stop thinking about every little detail. Its not the time to make sense!

    Heh,heh,heh. The Green Glow, universal sign of strength - and outer space radiation. Glad to see Durkula getting tossed around like that, but it does not seem, at least visually, to have had quite the impact that I was hoping for.

    Also, Hey Roy, the sword is cool and all, but maybe you ought to be thinking about that later. This fight is not exactly over yet.

    Roy utterly beats down Durkula, and is actually healed for real. Go Roy!

    Though hitting him away might be a mistake, as he doesn't seem dead or defeated yet, and Roy is out of his 'Greenhilt' mode rage, so Durkula might be able to respond or play for time now.

    Not only did it heal him, it apparently dispelled Hel's Might. Roy's packing some heat now, or at least glow.

    love Roy's expression in the last panel.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    Panel 6 and 7 : Beautiful. Home. Run. It feels good to see this vampire get his ass handed to him.

    Also, I wonder what that means. Is the Sword and intelligent item that can take control of its wielder ? Is it powered by Roy's emotions in some way ?

    so, roy was actually healed by the sword effect. if durkula now cast harm on himself, the duel will be effectively restarted. except that he'll be out of some of his best spell slots. still, i am surprised that he's still alive, given how much damage roy can deal, especiially with that green energy
    In memory of Evisceratus: he dreamed of a better world, but he lacked the class levels to make the dream come true.

    So, Roy suddenly loses the sword's boost, and Durkula isn't dead yet... and Durkula already said that he could just go into mist form and become essentially invincible.
