    Huh, Roy didn't think this through too hard, huh? Anything the OotS can do THROUGH the Forcecage?

    And looks like Sandstone, at least, is an outright Thrall?

    And so the question about the Sandstone Vampire is answered...
    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    So even the higher level dude got vamped and insta-ressed? I guess that throws another theory off the book then.

    Damn this is so stupidly broken.

    And he has a high chance of being a Vampire, not a Vampire Spawn, given he's probably higher tham 4th level and was killed by Blood Drain.

    Also, Forcecage is confirmed to be dismissable, as by the normal rules.

    Roy, did you smack your head on a door frame off panel or something? Youre usually a little quicker on the draw than that.

    I wonder if vampires can fake being corpses (complete with x_x eyes and regaining the victim's original color palette) or if the Negative Energy spirits were able to put the insta-vampirization on hold and thus that was a one time thing. Or if that was just a visual choice for the sake of the twist.

    I'd go with the third.

    I love coming to this post about a week after the comics up to see people reacting, and then see the characters do something similar but not quite. While adressing the not so inspired ideas.
    I love what this webcomic's story has become. Awesome work.

    Hahaha, hilarious page. Also yes, Sandstone is up. He's also seeming to be about the most advanced vampire aside from the clerics of Stone and Durkon* himself.

    I wonder if Sandstone's comment about "escaping to another plane" is an indicative of his capacity to cast Plane Shift (which would mean he's at least 9th level), or if it's just a bluff.

    Yes, how dare the vampire Durkon use an unknown number of unknown-level spell slots? Torches and pitchforks against the author, I say!

    All that matters is that Durkon can and that the spawn believe they will get to join him.

    Yeah Roy is not on his best here.
    Why do you think Sandstone is a thrall ? He seems way more intelligent than Thrall!Durkon* and the Exaargh also calls the Thorsaken "Master".

    Also anyone else got creeped out by Sandstone*'s suggestion ? Sounds like he is exploiting a crush Minrah had on Sandstone. Yeesh.

    Hmm ... according to the rules, the Forcecage automatically fails if at least one of the creatures inside is too big to fit ... and Belkar does have Bloodfeast with him ...
