    And that is why I sometimes tolerate Belkar despite him being a little [expletive].

    Yay! Belkar is back in the game!

    Was the smoke form going up or down the mountain? Belkar got buffeted down the mountain though I can see the whisp trailing off to the left in the last frame.

    Looks like up, to me.

    Well, that settles the "did Belkar die" argument neatly enough.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Poor Belkar is going to be sorely disappointed when he finds out that Roy's already figured it out!

    Going up. The eyes are to the left.

    On another note, it seems like the giant Creed member from 994 was vampirized as well. It seems likely that the rest of the Creed was vampirized as well.

    Oh no, Belkar is going to get double-teamed!

    Although, that surprise item was a good choice. And I liked that he didn't die from falling damage - I was almost expecting a lampshading, but I think this comic has already broken into that particular trope.

    Awesome -- loved the lampooning of this forum in Belkar's windy explication as he climbed.

    How can a sexy shoeless god of war have no daggers? Every sexy shoeless god of war should have an extra in his boot.

    Haha! He is alive! At least for now.

    And holy crap, he killed every single cleric usher. How the hell did he do that? How did he have time to do that? This is honestly terrifying.

    I must say I'm surprised. Not that belkar survived, I figured that was all but guaranteed given all the other fake outs, the lack of narrative attention given to his 'death', and that scruffy seemed okay.

    What surprises me is that the giant decides to draw attention to it like this, without Belkar doing anything interesting like barging in to save the day. Rich didn't save the reveal for a big climatic moment, which suggests to me that Belkar likely won't get to do a big climatic moment that everyone expected. He may save the day, but not by bashing through a window and knifing Durkula at a critical moment.


    Edit. wow. In the time I took to write two paragraphs 14 other posts were made. First time I've been close enough to when the comic was posted to see how rapidly the responses come in. It's unusual for the comic to be posted mid day isn't it?

    I agree, the staging seems to be setting it up so that Belkar won't get to burst in the way he wanted to.

    That and, you know, Roy has already had the great emotional revelation of finding out who Durkula really is. So that would be kind of a (gods)moot point.

    IS that a d12 weapon the vampire is holding? Because if so, I have a barbarian/fighter who would love to have that.

    Let's hope he/she does not have a size penalty to handling larger-than-normal weapons.

    Haha, I can't wait for all the "Belkar is dead" clickbaity threads to get real quiet now.

    But seriously, I had faith in my favorite little psycho, and while I didn't see the feather fall thing coming (I was sure he'd stolen Tarquin's whip and caught a ledge), I didn't think a ranger was going to go down to a little thing like a fall.

    And yeah, this definitely confirms my other suspicion, which was that Durkula got the entire Creed of Stone. That is bad bad news, but I do hope the Belkster manages to drop at least one of them.

    Cool.

    But... why's Belkar so dinged up if he had a feather fall item to use?

    Feather Fall wouldn't last the whole fall, but it kept him from dying.
