    I've gotta say, Logann is a dwarf after my own heart.

    I love how Logann always seems to have just the feat for the situation.

    Perhaps grounds to attack or banish Loki, him admitting to not really have any business with Hel right now? Either way, it seems to be enough oversight to prevent her interfering secretly. I'm wondering if it'll be not-so-secret interfering now.

    Well, since Durkon entered the Chamber all the gods are looking at, I think it's fair to say secret interventions are way less viable now...

    Also... (not so) subtle burn!!!

    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles don’t hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, can’t 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.

    Her faith may be pure, but I doubt her intelligence is all that much, maybe its just me but I doubt she'll have time to plane shift away.

    Logann shows that he's just as badass as Durkon and his mother. I don't know if he has the blind fight feat or if he's lucky, but he's doing very well.

    As of now, it looks like Sigdi and Durkon will be the ones to handle the troubles inside.

    Well if Durkon succeeds, she won't have to plane shift at all.

    I wonder how it works with Hylgia's loophole.

    "Hardly any" seems greater than "none" to me.
    And Hel wouldn't have souls of Loki's followers except those of dwarves on which she has default dominion, right?

    Strangely, I think that Hilgya was more Loki-ish in this strip than Loki himself.

    Loki doesn't have any time to waste on Hilgya right now.

    Later, now later is where we get to see how forgiving Loki actually is

    Well, Hilgya is acting entirely in accordance with his teachings there.

    Also, Loki is the best god.

    I feel like this is more evidence that Loki is Chaotic Neutral, not Evil.

    I think it leans into Chaotic Evil territory, given how often "do whatever's best for you" leads directly to someone getting their day ruined.

    What makes Hilgya think she will be safe elsewhere?

    Also-what followers does Loki get? It seems like dwarves are divided into "dies heroically" and "did not die heroically".

    I mean he believes in cheating rules to help you, it doesn't mean he's not Evil (though it doesn't mean he's not Neutral).

    "Safer than here" does not need to be "100% safe" as long as it is "safer than here".

    Chaotic Evil dwarves who died heroically.

    Probably the chaotic evil / chaotic neutral ones who die with honour. If you die with honour, you go to your specific alignment plane, not only Valhalla. It is just that most dwarves go there because they constantly try to live honourably.

    Not casting Remove Blindness strikes me as a tactical mistake. To avoid the no-attack-and-no-spells restriction, you'll probably need as many people shouting as possible.

    I'm not sure why you'd feel that avoiding the no-attacking-and-no-spell restriction via shouting requires sighted individuals.
