    I mean, in the world with a definitely existing afterlife and a well-known surefire way to get there, why WOULDN'T one react like this?

    Glasgewian dwarves are as hard to understand as actual Glasgewians.

    Also watch out for hypocrisy, Durkon, your job description as adventurer is literally to kill people and take their stuff.

    I just love how this Deathworm is written.
    It's such a refreshing experience to see a called creature doing it's best to fulfill it's orders in good faith rather than trying to weasel out of it through abusing technicalities.
    Remember: Hope springs eternal. The dark days will pass and the sun will shine again.

    The best way to learn something is to ask, so ask without shame.

    Many thanks to smuchmuch for the awesome Ponytar.

    No, you can't cast spells through the barrier - it blocks magic.

    You also can't cast spells that are against the law in the inner chamber, but they're in the middle chamber right now.

    Spells can't pass through the orange barrier. The stoned thing is inside the blue barrier, which is a room that hasn't been shown yet.

    He canít cast trough the barrier. In the same way that I canít throw a ball through a brick wall, but I can throw just fine regardless of the side of the wall I am on.

    That old dwarf should be glad that a judgement of 'killed in battle' doesn't require always paying attention to a likely attacker.

    Oh, and for reference, "knobby", "roaster", "tadger", "bawbags", "haf-pished", "skelp", "geggie" and "dobber" all mean precisely what you think they do.

    "Bairn" means child.

    Isn't he married with children now? Wasn't he the one who got married by Durkon?

    I can't believe that the Giant just posted! (I mean other than the comic itself. I don't think I've ever seen him respond to someone on the forums since I joined).
    YAY, first page!

    ah ok, sorry for the confusion then Rich. I thought it was "no spells allowed or stoned" inside the orange (because I thought the OOTS could pass one of the barriers and the fight was in a sandwhiched zone between the barriers)

    Probably due the nature of the webcomic (since it takes times between each strip) compared to the printed book. So I only had in my mind "inside barrier = welcome to stone age"

    Thank you everyone else that took its time to correct me. Wish you all a happy weekend!

    So let's recheck...

    Freshly created vampires spawn:
    -Tear their way through a dwarf fortress like a hot knife through butter.

    Strongest non-unique monster that Hel can gate to her followers:
    -Has the defensive advantage and earth elemental summon support yet takes several comics to kill a single old dwarf that was already at death's door and so wanted to get killed in battle for an honorable end before a "dishonorable" demise in the bed.

    Clearly they shouldn't have bothered with the deathcrawler and just gated a bunch of extra vampires.

    ...so we built a five millionth, three hundreth, twenty first one. That one burned down, fell over, then got eaten by the snarl, but the five millionth, three hundreth, and twenty second one stayed up! Or at least, it has been until now."

    So this is the cultural result of having weird rules for the afterlife combined with absolute certainty about the afterlife (and the accuracy of those rules).
