    Who knew giant death-worms could see through invisibility? Also, glad the Order is here; the action is about to begin again!

    First off, that's pretty smart for a giant death-worm.

    Second, I was just thinking that about Invisibility!

    For me, that's a bit more of a "waitwaitwait, what?". That worm doesn't have any eyes, so how is it that it can see at all? And in any other context, I could see it picking up on intruders via Tremorsense, but then, it wouldn't pick up anything that's not on the ground (nor would it recognize that said adventurers are invisible if it did).

    *sighs* I know, I know, magic, but it still seems like some balls were dropped here. (Not like that, wow that came out wrong.)

    Oh look, it's the members of the party that the Vamps should be less worried about that got detected. Pay attention to them, blood suckers, and not the clerics, or the guy with the seriously anti undead sword.

    I think this is the first time I have actually been on the site when a new comic got posted. I love the kind of awkward giant death worm, especially since I expected it to be non-sentient.
    The Greatest Threads Of GiantITP (in my opinion):
    A story of the exact wrong way to run a campaign.
    The best thread derailment of all time.
    The "canonical" list of Mostly Useless Magic Items.
    A ridiculous campaign.
    Weird dreams.

    I see why BW's offended. Ravens are both larger and smarter then crows, no mean feat given that crows are already one of the smartest animals in the world.

    Interesting - black background, but not white text. Maybe because it's Extraplanar Undead rather than regular Undead?

    I also read Blackwing as confused. He's looking around as well.

    It took me a moment to realize Blackwing was looking for the invisible crow because he's a Raven, and not just because he's oblivious.

    Not sure who is funnier, Blackwing or the Death Worm.
    Also, calm down Exarch, you're lucky the summoned help does ask for clarification.
    More often than not they're far less accommodating.

    Seriously, poor Wormy just wants to be as helpful as a Death Worm can be and the new boss acts like a total jerk.
    The Order should totally adopt the poor dear.

    May also be a defense response.

No, Itchy-Bark, it's a reference. Ever heard of breaking character? *Sigh* Just stay here and kill things that chase us out. Make like a tree and... stay."

    At will see invisibility: Nightcrawlers would be a fine watch worm if one can afford one.

    Back and forth between Exarch and nightcrawler: fun (was primed for Monty Python swamp castle guards sketch after the first few panels, but Rich didn't go there, good job)

    Haley's frustration with invisibility being dispelled: lesson learned (Guessing it came from one of her wands?)

    Exarch with spell prepared: sorta like V's Bugsby-cat spells

    V's explanation: to help all of the non-D&D playing people who like the strip.

    All in all, nice one, thank you Giant.

    OoTS, entertaining AND informative!

    I certainly hope V and Hailey aren't in too much danger here. I am looking forward to seeing what the Order has in store for the vampires.
