    There's also that "infinite" does not mean "all" .

    I like that Thor’s ringtone for Durkon is MC Hammer.

    Can't say Thor is not reasonable or Durkon is not trying his best. But the best part is when I got to the reason of the title. Heh still changes minds indeed.

    Too bad that Redcloak, even with Warhammer diplomacy, won't change his mind. He has too much invested in his sinking fallacy to invest in other opinions.

    I'd be interested in a world where someone's solution was to dissolve them.

    Also, shouldn't Thor ask about the world in the rift while he has Durkon on the line?

    I like how the phrase "Now everyone just gets concussions!" implies that there weren't any concussions before that world.

    There could be some use in having opinions change as the result of hitting somebody in the head. Hate vegetables? Nope, now I love them! So much easier to eat healthy!

    The bad certainly would outweigh the good, though.

    Well, if debate essentially boiled down to throwing hands every time you had a disagreement, I think I'd rather not live in a world with that kind of brain injury.

    See, the question is how you choose what to change their mind about. Was it a thing where you thought really hard about the opinion you wanted them to have? Were there certain spots on the head that correlated to something, say, vegetables, and hitting the spot flipped their opinion?

    I'm probably overthinking it.

    Is there a spot I can hit to fix that...?

    True, but I meant that there weren't concussions in any world before that, and the gods added them after that world.

    They mentioned that in "Speaking Terms", and I suppose this supports that.

    I like how Thor believes it is possible for Durkon + Minrah to kill Redcloak. He has faith in those that have faith in him, does Thor.

    "Warhammer Diplomacy" is best conducted between the Sisters of Battle and the Chaos Knights.

    Will Thor be able to tell Durkon about Serani? That really spoils a rogue's fun when their surprise attack is known in advance and planned for.

    Assuming the Commune has a 10 minute casting time (which seems likely) then The Order's buffs might be expiring soon if they cast them off panel (although other then possibly Death Ward none that I believe we have seen).

    Yeah but that was in the context of Durkon telling him he had spoken to Thor in person, and there was still some doubt about how Commune works in the OotS world and whether Vamp Durkon was using Commune to talk with Hel.

    I'm guessing Thor is making an exception for Durkon from the standard Commune rules, which considering the stakes does make sense. Gods have a bit more wiggle room when it comes to their worshipers anyways, it seems, judging by how Loki could tell Hilgya where Durkula was at all.

    Also heh, the last panel made me chuckle.
