    Are you kidding? Mr Scruffy lives with Belkar! He probably has the worst issues of them all.

    Ah, divine justice takes many forms. Including confused clerics punching you in the nose.

    OK, so we know Durkon's in heaven, and the vampire spirit DurkonT ... isn't. I wonder if we'll ever find out what happened to it?

    Unknown to Durkon, Mr. Scruffy is fully aware of the Sphinx Pox he carries and is weighted down with guilt at this moment, so not even the cat is fine.

    Mr. Scruffy may be a murderous psychopath, but for a cat that's completely normal psychology.

    I wonder why Minrah doesn't have her hammer, since Roy's grandfather had his sword?

    Also, I wonder if Durkon ever saw Minrah? Does he know who she was? I think he only saw what DurkonT let him see (or drug him by the beard to see).

    Have we seen a flashback to Roy's time on the clouds? Wherever it is that Durkon and Minrah are hanging out looks a little different from where Roy and Eugene were, but that might be because of art style changes. That said, I wouldn't be too surprised to learn that dwarves have a different heavenly foyer, since their afterlife mechanics are so different.
    Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if, when he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?

    Is he going to get cross-examined by a deva as Roy was? Because that might be interesting. I suspect Durkon might have an easier time, but he's still going to have to answer for Belkar and, possibly, V.

    Based on Roy's experiences in the afterlife, I think they're not in Valhalla yet, but awaiting judgement. Both died honourably in battle though, so they're probably fine.

    I wasn't around for all the issues people had over Roy running around after death, but I'm excited about another Afterlife romp! Sadly, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot shorter this time around.

    If the evil spirit is technically an outsider, then it's merged back into the plane it was born in - Hel's domain. It wouldn't exist as a discrete individual anymore.

    I wouldn't be terribly unsatisfied with that, either. If that vampire's last moment was to be spent buckling under the weight of Sigdi's awesomeness, it'd only be fitting.

    Yey, Durkon is free. Also good on Minrah for keeping on fighting the good fight. Now to see who comes back and who doesn't. And how they get judged and where.

    Maybe? More concerned about him meeting Hel, TBH. Although he and Minrah seem to have skipped directly to cloud-land, so maybe they were so clear-cut heroism deaths they don't even have to wait for Thor and Hel to dicker it out.

    Interesting!

    I have been wondering about this for a while: whether we would see another glimpse into the other planes, and how they are reacting to the impending end of the world. Will we get to see some lower planes when Belkar dies?

    Presumably for the same reason Roy didn't have it: she doesn't think the hammer truly belongs to her.

    He should be, yes, unless he gets resurrected before that. It won't be as long as after the battle, but there should be a bit of a queue after Greg's rampage. (It might not happen on-page, though)

    Well, Roy faced grief for Belkar because he was Belkar's leader and therefore carried some responsibility for his actions. Durkon wasn't, and still tried to steer both of those two onto a better path. Well, more V than Belkar, but I don't think he'd face too much scrutiny on that front, either.
