    I sense a Durkon Crowning Moment of Awesome incoming by next strip.

    Loved the "I never let go" panel.
    I gave up fighting, and stabbing and bludgeoning and stealing and bar-brawls and wenches . . . and it was the worst 10 rounds of my life - Jerry the Country & Western Bard.


    WHY ISN'T HE JOLLY???

    Wow, that "I ne'er let go" was so very touching.


    Wonder what Greg is thinking.

    I wonder if this is the kind of stuff Sanctify The Wicked shows you? In Greg's case, it appears that lack of understanding plays as much of a role as active malice towards the living if not more.

    "I never let go" is right up there along with " 'Wanna play blocks with me?' 'More than anything.' " Nice one Giant!

    I still have no idea where this is going. Towards "Vamp Durkon is shaken", it might seem, but all my fakeout alerts are going crazy.

    This is getting intense.

    Well, well, well. Now we wait to see how Durkula is going to react to this.
    The Giant says: Yes, I am aware TV Tropes exists as a website. ... No, I have never decided to do something in the comic because it was listed on TV Tropes. I don't use it as a checklist for ideas ... and I have never intentionally referenced it in any way.

    So I was thinking Roy was faking so he could attack once they got in range, but there's no guarantee they wouldn't just finish the order off one by one before drinking from the rest, so that seems needlessly risky. Señor Scruffy is pawing at Belkar with a stake in handy grabbing distance, but this really seems like it's Durkon's time to shine. I just can't see how. Really excited to see how this is going.

    Also I still think there's something to vampy still being armored in his mind despite being a robes kinda guy.

    This is an amazing strip. Sigdi's story brings a tear to my eye. literally. That kind of emotional engagement rarely happens when I read fiction. This is intensely well-written, Giant.

    And those are the very words Durkon said to Hilgya when he left her.

    Malack seemed capable of growing, and learning, and changing. Let’s see what the vampire does.

    Fantastic strip!

    Nice catch, knew those words were familiar.

    Great callback, also!

    My mum taught me tha' I should always take feelings like that, and bury them inna deep dark part o' my soul and nev'r ev'r talk about 'em again. That's tha dwarven way.

    I can see why Durkula is shaken.

    So that's what Durkon was referring to, when he mentioned Sigdi advice during his breakup with Hilgya.

    That would mean a vamipre/ spawn Elan- a chillingly hilarious thought!

    Fantastic. I'm really loving this book.
    "And yet, will we ever come to an end of discussion and talk if we think we must always reply to replies? For replies come from those who either cannot understand what is said to them, or are so stubborn and contentious that they refuse to give in even if they do understand." - St. Augustine
