    If you are looking for moment-to-moment rules accuracy from this comic, you probably should stop reading. You are guaranteed to be continually frustrated and disappointed, because I don't care about that at all.

    I wasn't completely sure what those undead were. Now, we know they're wights, which are far more manageable than vampires. This was a fun episode.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the browncloaks have access to retrieval/Raise Deads. For a mage that knew he was going to die, that browncloak was pretty confident.

    He gets a Fort save in 24 hours, DC 14-16, unless Tsukiko buffed Cha. Shouldn't be too hard for a level 14 Ranger/Barbarian in any event.

    Actually, Belkar woulf get a Fortitude Save with a DC of 14 in 24 hours time, and assuming his on level 13 with classes which have stron Fortitude saves, removing it shouldn't be that much of a problem (a Level 11 Ranger/2 Barbarian (presumably) would get a Fort. save bonus of 10 before Con bosuses are added, so he should be able to get rid of it quite easily if they don't have a level 7 Cleric).
