    Wow, could the banjo people have called it? Maybe Varsuvious as a rep of the IFCC?

    So which demigod is left to vote? I see the cleric third from left in the first pane, but don't recognize the character.

    There seems to be a missing period after "oblivion" in panel 5.

    Great to finally switch back to the other characters, but... dratted sneaky vampires!

    They still have more time remaining. This was a big part of her decision to come clean to Roy—so that he would be wary of the possibility that they would again take V out of the picture.

    Uh, just which demigod is that dwarf vampire now on the ship representing?

    I don't have the all 3.5 DnD pantheons memorized.

    From actual Norse pantheons, since Valkyries were servants of the gods in the North Pantheon, sent to collect slain brave warriors. Not sure how this makes a demigod out of their Queen ... but whatever, I guess that's as valid as a Fire Giant lord being a demigod.

    Oooh, Hel got played. She deceived the demigods, and one of them changed their mind when they learned the truth.

    We now know that HPoH did use the staff to create a vampire out of poor Gontor - but what does he hope to accomplish on the Mechane?

    It appears that despite my fervent protests to the contrary, Banjo is about to be entered into the pantheon and allowed a vote - and Hel thinks Banjo will vote for destruction. What other demigod could there be?

    Also, Mr. Scruffy has one eye open. Vamptor had best watch his step.

    Ha, I love Iounn. And Blackwing. And Loki. And Roy climbing on top of the shell. Really this is just great all around.

    No idea what Hel's backup plan is. Is it the same thing as the "next phase" Durkula mentioned last comic? If so, it's probably something involved like commandeering the airship and fetching another demigod priest or two, since he thinks Roy might be able to stop it.

    In the 3.0 (but has online 3.5 update) book Deities & Demigods, normal Valkyries are Rank 0 Quasi-deities - so it seems quite reasonable that the head Valkyrie would have an extra rank or so, putting her in demi-deity territory.

    That's not a demigod priest, that's the former Exarch of the Creed of Stone, now vampirized. So now the question is, what is Hel's backup plan and how does it involve the aptly named Mechane?

    Well, I don't think many people expected this.

    The vote is a No but they STILL have a backup plan?
    Rules that supersede Rule 0:

    Rule -1: You're all there to have fun. The GM and the players should never do anything that would limit people's fun, for any in-game or real-life reason.

    Rule -0.5 (corollary): That means that if someone's fun is getting in the way of other people's fun, that person needs to change how they're playing.

    Also - why would the vampire want to be in V's room? Is he stealing the teleport orb?

    Maybe that's how Durkon brings death and destruction to the dwarven lands - teleporting there with V's orb.

    So far. Given that Hel is worried by Hermod's defection, the seventh vote is probably going to be "No" - hence the HPoH's backup plan.
