    Bazinga!

    I'm glad Durkon meets his Ma' again.

    Is Roy supposed to be wrong when he says the vote is scheduled for noon, or is it a slight continuity mistake? Wait that was a year ago!? How time flies.

    So wait, was Durkon only Vamped for a week?

    Agreed, but it does kind of make me happy to know all this time he has been able to communicate with his loved ones.

    Btw. when in the comic was Durkon able to cast sending?

    Also here is the four times sending to Roy which Durkon is referring to in the latest strip: http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0733.html

    Nice reunion, it might not ultimately be good that she's here, though. But at least she gets to meet her grandson - and Hilgya...

    It's a mistake, I was going by memory, remembering that I had definitely scheduled it for after dawn. I'll fix it.

    EDIT: Fixed.

    That... both totally made sense and I'm surprised I didn't see it coming by the simplicity of it all.

    I was really wondering if Sigdi was still alive! So glad she is. And hilarious that Durkon knew all along.

    So one sending was supposed to be for Sigdi. Who were the other three for?

    I'm guessing one for Hinjo, one for Serini and one in case they need it.

    She's probably never actually seen them - just heard Durkon talk about them for the past many years.

    Also I assume that Durkon is meant "murder fer a decent pint" not "murder a decent pint".

    Or wait, maybe he means murder as in drink savagely.

    Huh. Never would have guessed that, but... yeah.

    That is some delightful undercutting of drama. The realities of magic in the D&D system have a way of doing that, huh?

    Probably all four for Sigdi to have a back and forth conversation.

    That rather depends on how much Durkon told her about his friends. I don't describe my friends's looks to my parents either, why would I?

    It must be this, if only because it would be extremely tactless to go on about how you'd like to murder someone not thirty minutes after you've stopped being an undead murder-machine.

    Even though it's been ages in irl time, in comic time it's only been maybe a week since Durkon died.

    The latter probably, it is more commonly used for eating, but people definitely say things like "I could murder a hamburger." (or in this case a beer)
