    Hey, during lunch!

    I see my speculation of it being a different cleric of Loki and a time jump was wrong.

    Well, that was... not how I expected that to happen, but with everyone who predicted Hilgya wanted to raise Durkon just to kill him again, I suspected it might.

    I still snort-laughed at the punchline, though.

    Yeah, in that situation I probably would have done the same thing. Come on, Durkon, how dense are you? Don't answer that.

    That is sweet, but also hilarious.

    I was not expecting Durkon to propose!

    Well, Durkon kinda was coming on a bit strong there.

    Though I hope she has enough for Minrah to...

    Was really hoping for beardless Durkon or for Hilgya to punch him. Guess we can't have everything lol

    Also, even if she's rich, two lost levels is really gonna hurt Durkon

    But if she uses up all her diamonds to constantly raise Durkon so she can kill him over and over, she won't be able to raise Minrah!

    Above anything else, I love Kudzu reaching for the diamond and then getting upset when it vanishes.

    That does concern me a bit. "You idiot, we need him as strong as possible if we're going to beat the people bent on world destruction and/or domination!"

    Notice Kudzu's reaction to the diamond in panel 1-3? His reactions to things can be quite amusing at times, I'm glad he's in the comic (he doesn't seem fazed by seeing Durkon dead though, although I guess he might not know what death is).

    Never outmaneuver a vindictive woman and prevent her from getting revenge or she'll do it anyway out of spite!

    I love how furious Belkar looks. He's got some issues with Durkon, it's true, and I don't think he'll be shy about pursuing them.

    Just how powerful is Hilgya that a single Flame Strike is able to kill a high level dwarf cleric with full hit points?

    Hah, I guess everyone who said she was resurrecting Durkon just for the satisfaction of killing him herself were right.

    Ooooh, burn.

    What? Someone had to say it.

    Although, if my future father-in-law had a flame strike available when I proposed...

    Heck, he'd probably still use it today.

    Jeez, he's now down a full spell level from when he fought Malack. *And* the rest of the party has been racking up XP since then. I hope Hilgya is satisfied.

    (Side note, I don't really want to cut back to Valhalla right now, but I hope when this gets made into a book, we get a bonus strip where Durkon pops back in for ten minutes and has to make awkward chitchat with Thor and Minrah.)

    My reaction upon seeing the comic:

    Yea! Cool!

    Wait .... but ... ACK!

    Nooo!

    Of course. Thus being the only member of the linear guild to actually take kill her counterpart in the Order.

    So how come Durkon came back clothed? Or did Roy only come back naked because Haley took his stuff?

    Man, Durkon is bad at reading people for someone with such a high wisdom score.

    Assuming he gets to keep XP from Greg, we know that Greg was able to cast level 8 spells, so Durkon is still at least level 13 (possibly 14, but 13 seems more probable).

    For another example, page 1, panel 9 has Kudzu reaching out to Durkon when Durkon gestures to him, and in panel 10 Hilgya pulls his hand back.

    Ok, we knew hilgya was a jerkass, but she's also a total moron. the world is at risk, and she drains a level from one of the guys trying to help? I had pretty low expectations of her, but I still thought her better than that.

    I don't find that amusing. though mostly it's because it seems the narrative is condoning her.
    In memory of Evisceratus: he dreamed of a better world, but he lacked the class levels to make the dream come true.

    Ridiculous monsters you won't take seriously even as they disembowel you
