    Did. . . did you just make a D&D fight into a game of snakes and ladders? That's amazing.

    To be fair, Squeaky seems a lot more tolerable than Elan. Still a Bard, but not nearly so... y'know.

    I guess those musical swordsmen get a bonus to dash when making quips, then.

    They don’t even get bonuses from that! They’re doing it for the love of the art! Elan could learn a thing or two from them.

    Even dwarves do it?! And here I was thinking it was an Elan or Dashing Swordsman thing...

    So they just do it for the prestige, and could teach a class on it?

    Punning is an unwritten class feature of bards, clearly.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    Would being unwritten mean it's silently spelled?

    ...ok, I'm really reaching on that one.

    Roy is bravely stopping the worm from attacking anyone else.

    So... the worms orders were...

    "Defend this area." "Yes, this area here, this... uh... platform thing"
    "Prevent anyone from getting through this door into the Middle Chamber. Except us and our mind-controlled thralls".

    The ramp bypasses the platform and goes in through a window - bypassing the "platform thing" and the specified "door into the Middle Chamber"
    I'm not sure if the worm will even try to stop them.

    Meanwhile - Roy is in the worm's mouth!!! (Potential for being swallowed/level drained?)

    Let's hope Squeaky can launch a few Songs of Freedom - otherwise once the dwarves cross the orange barrier, won't they be just as susceptible to the domination gaze?

    Immediately upon seeing the new strip was up and let a friend know ...


    Me: "1165 is up. I think it's right up your alley."

    Him: "Oh, chute, I wish I'd thought of those!"

    Me: "I'll let it slide."

    Sure looks like somebody should talk to Elan about a certain prestige class...

    I’m glad Durkon and family are getting a starring role, though I do hope they manage to lower the barriers and the order gets to participate in the climax here.

    Looks like the rest of the worm battle will take place off-screen. Time for the Durkon family's time to shine.

    Or he managed to get her to say "Master Squeaky" and decided "Good enough".

    That would be one way of getting used to her calling him "Master", yes.
