    Aw, look at Scruffy and Bloodfeast. Good to see the animal companions being friends.
    Also "I don't know what's weirder" is one of the funniest lines in this comic so far.

    Well, V approves of the "intentionally misreading the scroll" tactic. Must be kosher.

    I love Talky Vaarsuvius comics, especially when they also have a good dose of Blackwing.

    Aww, all of the emotional growth and bonding.
    I would think V should have warned Haley and Elan prior to racing off.
    Thanks Giant!

    Character growth for V and B continues. And now the cavalry is on its way to help Belkar, depending on how things are going with the goliath-vampire. I don't think V is going to allow a vampire to tell hir that access is denied.

    Also, "BigbyBugsby's Cat-Retrieving Hand" FTW.

    Ha! Awesome comic (and I happen to be online when it drops too! Winning!!).

    I love the interaction between V and Blackwing. Character growth! Character growth, everywhere!

    Great to see the world's most precise spell make another appearance, making it more useful than Hold Portal!

    I believe V's alignment is CN or TN. And we've already seen that vampire-Creed of Stone members are fair game. Therefore, any vampire at the gate who tries to deny V access is going to eat Evocations and die.

    Typo in V's speech, panel 5. Extra word lurking in there.

    V's math is on point as usual

    Gotta say, it was pretty nice to walk out of an exam and find this update. Thank you! Definitely a nice mix of character development, acknowledgement of said development, and humor. And incoming ass-kicking now that V is entering the fray.

    Wouldn't a potion of healing work on a tiger? The kind that the Mechane has a hold full of?

    In 3.5 a vampire bite causes constitution drain. They don't have potions for that.

    TN it is (edit: Source: Word of Giant via Class and Levels Geekery Thread).

    Also, I find Mr. Scruffy and Bloodfeast absolutely adorable. And the rats managed to chew little holes in Bloodfeast's hide (he should have as much HP in this form as in T-Rex form).

    Well, that definitely wasn't what everybody thinking with Bloodfeast! But the fact that Blackwing has come to terms with his bauble insecurities means that the healing can finally begin.

    The tiger is Hit Dice drained. Potions of healing only cure Hit Points damage

    V proves that a true wizard is always prepared for feline-carrying duties. And Blackwing paraphrases Harry Potter?

    V's excuse to Blackwing would have been better had she stopped a bit earlier, but I'm sure he won't repeat it.

    And are Mr. Scruffy and Bloodfeast bonding over this carnage? That is really cute.

    I know Vaarsuvius is prone to loquaciousness, but "upon which we are must continue to improve" sounds rather . . . off. Typo?

    Hoorah for V finally getting in the game. Does his raised eyebrow suggest he has correctly surmised the nature of the off-brand Durkon-like vampire, and will go to the moot ready for more trouble? or will his near total lack of knowledge-religion mean he'll assume the Goliath Vampire is supposed to be there?

    Don't really have much to say other than someone needs to add this to the comic's Heartwarming section on TV Tropes, even with the failure to "quit while ahead." But woo first page!

    I chose to think this is a very META part of the post. I believe the are is supposed to be all. But when reading what he is saying there and the typo. It is very META indeed as if Rich is including himself, and possibly inviting the reader by self reflection, in the misspelled all.

    **Also happy to get this reflection in on 1st page as there will probably be over 100 people commenting about the "typo".
