    Give it to Bloodfeast so it can continue the 'pocket dragon' career (Gods, Bloodfeast is almost literally a Pokémon at this point). Then, when the vampires cast dispel...

    Hilarity ensues.

    Nice, they're not entirely useless. And yes, I agree with V here... it's not just the potion.

    Surprised they had a greater magic fang. Wonder what they were going to do with it.

    I was thinking something like that too. God I want something like this to happen. I still look at the panel of Belkar on top of Bloodfeast and laugh.

    Maybe the brewmaster just wanted to try brewing it once just to see if he could?
    I wonder if there will be a big scene next comic... Then again, it has been 500 strips since #600...

    10 GP says Elan simply stopped his mom from telling him when his birthday was, just so he could keep it 'shrouded in mystery'.

    Minrah's cute. I hope she survives and then she and Durkon hit it off.

    How much damage does the fang and fire breath potions do?

    Depends on the caster level - a maximum of +5 to damage for one natural weapon, for Greater Magic Fang.

    Fire Breath: 4d6 fire damage, DC13 Reflex save for half damage:

    Fang does 1 to 5 and adds 1 to 5 to hit on each attack (it varies depending on level).

    Fire breath does 4d6 against a single target up go 25 feet away, you can use it up to 3 times in an hour with a dc 13 save for half. Good chance we see a fire breathing Blackwing I think.

    It only makes sense that dwarven clerics would have holy beer to fight the undead!

    Poor Blackwing, no respect from anyone.
    Elan in top form.
    And of course dwarven clerics of Thor would store holy ale.

    Good strip. Totally forgot that one of the things they'd need one of the clerics for was guidance through the tunnels. That's a good stash, too. Like wands, the contents of some potions need to be kept secret so that they'll be exactly what you need later.

    Interesting that the Brewmaster is not only interested in ale (holy or mundane), but also in potions and ointments.

    On second thought, seems logic to branch out in that direction. Both require following recipes and some level of diligence and/or talent.

    What are the odds that Minrah is related to Durkon in some way?
    Any maps so they can try to reach that central guild hall ahead of the Vampires?
    Does Minrah know any of the elders so she can Message them a warning or is she 1st level?

    Did you need the "Brew Potions" feat to make Holy Water (or Ale)? If so then once he sank the feat into getting that, the rest was just magical ingredients. And those might even be supplied by the temple, if it's for things Clerics could use in battling Evil.

    Blackwing shouldn't be worried about not getting the Greater Magic Fang potion. He's the brains of the animal followers, not the brawn.

    Wow, I hope there's some Aloe Vera potion for Blackwing, because that was quite a burn from V.

    Minrah is going to die bravely but not vainly; thus I foretell. Perhaps she'll be the one to tell Durkon the truth about his exile, inspiring him to redouble his efforts against Durkula.

    And we have some unnamed potions from "the private stash", allowing for exactly the right potion at the right time, just like Haley's unidentified wands from Tinkertown.

    Things are looking up for OotS; not that I expect good times to last.

    I'll bet you 10gp that Hilgya is going to be there, and that she'll be the one to take up that role, if anyone does so at all.
