    This feature made them very effective boats for coastal raiding, since they could bring the raiders ashore more or less anywhere. (Besides coastal cliffs ...)

    What I really would like to know is: How quickly NotThad will take the other vampires in the room?
    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    Two little questions, because I am a little bit confused: On the second page, is Kandro switching his axe between his hands? And which of his arms is wounded?

    His secret third arm that he has hidden behind his head, of course.

    Sure, people rarely act in real life like the folks in heroic myths.

    But if one of a cultureís myths involve chucking a dead guyís wife into a fire at his funeral, it probably tells you something.

    Myths/rumors of widow killing are very common from my understanding. I believe Greek and other European cultures have myths regarding it as well. Some Asian cultures have myths about it. Widow killing via burning and otherwise has occurred in India and also some in other nearby areas and apparently widow strangling has been reported in the Pacific and the Americas.

    My question is, what class is Not-Thad, and will his spell-like powers, (sweet glowing sword!) count as a spell when he gets into the inner chamber?

    That made me think that, if Not'Thad doesn't know the rules too well, he may be there to be the one turned to stone to show us the effects of the blue barrier...

    That said, i'd just love to see Gontor* tricked into doing something that turned him into stone...

    @Fyraltari
    Pun attempt gets a score of 4/10 from the Russian judge.
    Effort appreciated, but it didn't land so well.

    Sheriff: Just a reminder that real world religion (even if termed "mythology") and politics (broadly defined) are inappropriate topics on this Forum. Please avoid them, even when they intersect a gaming or comic topic.

    You can discuss fictional versions of religions, deities, etc., but be particularly careful not to reference or rely on real world religions, past or present.
