    It's definitely good to see Durkon chipper again.

    Ever the optimist, Durkon! Hope they grab that ash before Hilgya scatters it...

    But Durkon, by discussing it before it happens you're totally jinxing it! Back to Elan with you! Wait, that would mean he does get resurrected. Now I understand Nale.

    There's way too much talk of this being the queue leading to the afterlife, a part of me is terrified that it's nothing of the sort!

    To say nothing of the terror I feel regarding the Resurrection...

    That 7th panel got me. Classic Durkon, in the best sense.

    Minrah was "warned" by Hilgya about Durkon, and this seems to contrast nicely with that "warning". Hmmm...


    Hilgya: Be careful with Durkon, he's a pig.
    Minrah: But he seemed nice to me.
    Hilgya: I said STAY OUT of his way. He's min-- I mean, he's mean!

    I think Durkon has been reading the forums...

    Anyway, he clearly will accept a resurrection, despite dying with honor, so that's one question answered, not that there was ever any real doubt.

    How may clerics in this world can even cast Resurrection without a corpse? Anyway, it's nice to see Durkon happy. It's also notable that, despite having just died an honorable death, technically twice, he's still willing to go back for the sake of saving the world, in spite of the personal risk. A true dwarf, through-and-through. Let's hope Elan's Law Of Probability works!

    Great to see Durkon & Minrah still playing a part in this story. And, of course, I'm *really* enjoying the quick drumbeat of new pages! Thanks, Giant

    Yep. When a dire crisis suddenly shows up out of nowhere and all you do is whack some vampire spawn before being crushed by higher level characters, that's still answering the call to battle when it's most needed. Revolutions have been built on such courage.

    "Dinnae get ta spend much time talkin' ta Elan, then?" is perhaps the funniest line ever delivered by Durkon.

    "Dinnae get much more distinguish'd than tha." is Durkon at his finest, dispensing encouragement and wisdom.

    And we now know that Durkon will answer the call if resurrected, not that there was much doubt. The man who never gives up will not give up the Order's quest, even at the risk of his immortal soul becoming a toy of Hel. He is who he is.

    Given that Roy and Haley used Durkon's resurrection fund to pay the crew of the Mechane, I think Durkon, like Roy, will have a bit of trouble getting back from the Afterlife.

    I've officially spent too much time reading OOTS. All I was thinking about when reading Minrah's lines was that Elan would firmly disagree. Then Durkon goes and says what he says . . .

    Good job, Durkon, keep reminding us of how unlikely it is for you to come back in order to increase the chance that you will come back!

    I wouldn't describe Roy's situation as "a bit of trouble". It formed the plot of an entire book, whereas i'm betting that Durkon will be resurrected by the end of this one. I'm tempted to take Andi's stipend, but it's not enough on it's own, I don't think.

    I can think of five dwarves who owe Durkon's mom everything they have plus quite a bit more, and who therefore might be willing to help out, especially with the fate of the world at stake. Also, Hilgya wants to have words with Durkon (if only so she can kill him herself), and we know she got quite a bit of money from bankrupting her own clan for revenge.

    Any speculation on the tower? Valhalla? Bureaucratic Deva HQ? One of Xykon's secret hideouts?

    In Norse myth Valhalla is described as a "hall", as in a viking longhouse, with the shields of the fallen for the roof. Could be I tower, I suppose, but I don't think that's where they are.

    I'm hoping it doesn't take as long as Roy. Sure, it would probably be anticlimactic for him to be raised absolutely immediately, but I don't see it taking 222 strips.

    That would be amazingly sweet. Kinda a "pay-it-forward" thing, I like it. Plus, it can finally give us the scene i've been hoping for ever since we met Sidgi: Durkon reuniting with her after years spent in Human lands. It's that, and him possibly running into his father in the afterlife. It'd be nice to see a good father show in this comic for once.

    Fun fact: When he was resurrected, Roy had been dead for a third of the comic up to that point.

    Anybody else reading the title and waiting for a 'speak with dead' or something like that?
