    Sweet fight scene. Although I'm really not sure why the attitude change in the (AWESOME FOR FIGHTING TO THE END) druid.

    Just finished the 3rd part of the Duke's Wolf, very good, and get rewarded with the new comic as well.

    Looks like Leeky is giving up without having to get himself killed, so I guess he chose only the moderately difficult way.
    And so much for my Belkar eating brains makes him a half-zombie idea. (not that I really thought that... but the idea of a half-zombie is interesting)

    Meh, this comic was okay. The funniest part was the superheroes playing cards. The end was so-so.

    I bet his sitting down wasn't by choice, but rather the Command spell (I may have the wrong name). I've usually seen it used in combat to force an opponent to Approach, taking lots of attacks of opportunity, but forcing them to Sit takes them out of the battle in a slightly less bloody fashion.

    Edit: Either Command or Greater Command are possibilities; the Sit pseudocommand could either be the Fall command (target falls prone) or the Halt command (target takes no actions). Unless it's the Greater version, either effect goes away after one round, though since the Greater version is only cleric level 5, it's certainly within Durkon's possible range.

    Battle-awesomeness!

    Edit: I definitely agree with the speculations that Durkon cast a Command Word: Stay, Sit!, and Sit. I believe that such spells usually are given modifiers to their DCs when it goes against a person's normal attitude, so appealing to Leeky's animal instinct without forcing him to endanger himself further must have been a decent enough DC for the uber-druidzilla to fail. :P

    Honestly, not being a big superhero fan, I really thought the "Fire Storm" thing detracted from the comic.

    But I will never be able to think of druids without thinking of that comic again.

    Incedentally, by the time I looked at "newest comic" and got 358, then went directly to OOTS Discussion, there were already 6 posts in the new comic thread. Whatup with that?

    Woo! GL cameo!

    Also, I'm not sure I get the ending there; is it because a defeated Druid will act like an animal, or what?

    Oh wow I totally missed that part ^^; Yeah that was ... funny, because I totally expected Belkar to have enjoyed that cuisine :P guess predictions proved true that Kobold-flavored anything isn't that good of a taste.

    Ahhh...y'know, I'm starting to think that Belkar only really decided to hang out with the OOTS so he could continuously creep out Roy in new and interesting ways.

    After all, why else would he go through all the trouble of having that kobold blood pulped into a useable, yet utterly nasty salsa, and stuffing perfectly serviceable tortilla chips into a kobold head, if that wasn't his entire goal in the OOTS?

    Also, it's funny to think that's his only motivation. :3

    Heh...Fire Storm would probably make more sense if I knew more about that character priorly...

    And that was easily one of the best battle scenes I've ever seen. So much kickassery...

    Of course, I'm betting The Giant did that on purpose...after all, this is the first true Druid/Gnome we've seen in the comic, it would disappoint fans of both types if he failed miserably.

    And last, and least...I can't help but be reminded of Inu Yasha..

    ;-; Which I am deeply sorry for. Sorry guys.

    I'm going to take a wild guess and assume that he doesn't want to die. Durkon, who was already doing quite well going toe-to-toe with him, has gained some serious reinforcements, while Leeky just watched his class feature animal companion get divided and conquered.

    Because he has probably like 3 hp left and doesn't want to die?

    Think about it, he was casting Heal when Haley fizzled his spell, so he already considered himself fairly injured. Then he took an arrow, a greatsword wound, and a smack across the face with a shield. He's lucky to still be conscious.

    No white magic blob = no spell cast by Durkon, so no, it was just the force of Durkon's personality that got Leeky to give up. Which is much cooler than if he had cast a spell.
