    Maybe the surrounding green fire fried a vampminion? Please?

    Not good!
    Though Roy looks very fierce throwing his sword.
    Will our heroes save the day?
    Thanks Giant.

    And off they go.

    Funny how the high priesesst of Odin--presumably the highest level Cleric there--did absolutely nothing all battle. Was it because that spear (which Roy embedded in the wall) was her holy symbol, or was she just paralyzed with shock/indecision?

    Truly, excessive intelligence and the ability for the analysis of complex situations is just a source of unnecessary nuisance and stress.
    Low intelligence must be the key to long life.

    Welp, that's it, folks. It's the end of the world as we know it.

    The Vamps are going to dominate the Dwarven Council, they're going to vote "yes," and the world will be destroyed.

    All we can do now is look forward to what will now be infinite comics of blank white space while we wait for Order of the Stick 2: Order Stickier!

    Since Roy seems to be the level headed one in this gathering, it really surprises me that he never threw his sword earlier at Durkula. Ah, well. Prophecy, here we go!

    For one horrid second I thought that the sword was going to hit Vampire Durkon in the face, and get brought along in the teleport.

    I hope we'll soon learn a bit more of the "green rage" which has now activated twice in the same encounter. It would be awesome if Roy was able to find some sort of control over it. (though seeing as it apparently works through emotions, that may be wishful thinking)

    I guess it's simple as that. It's basicly his super sayjan form.

    Impressive show of strength to throw the sword at Durkula, but in vain. Things are not looking good for the Heroes. Team Vamp is going to go massacre the Dwarves unless someone does something there. I doubt that the "in the nick of time" airship can make it there that quickly!
    So I said to myself "SELF, if I were you, and I think I am, I would be beside myself in embarrassment, so slap myself silly."

    The easy guess is that Hel's plan will fail, but at a horrible cost for the dwarven population. No premature apocalypse, but prophecy is fulfilled.

    Since when is throwing your melee weapon a level headed move?

    Should be interesting seeing how they solve this. Maybe with their ship that always arrives in the nick of time?

    Oooo. Wonderful as always, Giant.

    Edit: Hold on, don't you need to use the same spell to counterspell? How can a Cleric of Hel have a Thor-specific spell to counter with?

    Also, throwing the sword was a bit of a desperate act. If he had done that before, he would have then had had no more weapon to fight with, since his sword would have been in the anti-life barrier.

    Good catch on the spear. She, differently from the most of the others HP, has no pendant, so you could be right about the holy symbol.
    There are a few others in the same situation, so maybe this is a rare but not unique situation.

    Now we get an adventure in the dwarven lands! Like Elan hoping for dinosaurs, I'm hoping for woolly mammoths.

    And the late notes soar to a higher range,
    But the theme is still the same.

    Can Roy still attack the fPoH?

    He probably can.. but who knows... the vamp dwarves' real plan is probably to try to destroy the gate themselves. After all, Durkula knows Roy just tried to kill him, and he was his body guard.

    No Hel vote = no tie = no need for demi god vote = no point in vamping elders.

    Also, I think Roy just learned a new feat.

    At the very least, I imagine he'll be able to activate it for Uncle Xykon.

    Oh no, Roy! He's going to be pissed now. The 'Clatter.' sound effect of his sword hitting the ground with a period is a good mic drop for the scene, though. Good call there, Giant.

    Edit: yeah, that face is pretty priceless. I definitely want one for smiley purposes.
