    Yeah, V's really lost it now, trying to apply common sense to a fantasy setting and all.
    Will be edited by Ryuuk : Sometime in the future.

    V will always be his worst impediment toward absolute Arcane Power.

    (Think of the XP won if he had single-handely banished the Demon..)

    ...I think Banishment only lets you use something you actually have for an optional focus, and V just attacked an enormous devil and expected it to be a cakewalk.

    Also, I think V is turning evil. I mention it now because of V comparing V to a devil in this chapter, but V has been acting really callous towards everybody since V's defeat at Azure City as well.

    V takes a hit and DOESN'T get knocked out?

    EDIT: "I want all mortals on the island dead". So, let's leave the island maybe? Rather quickly.

    Also, Quar just officially threw Therkla to the wolves. I wonder if she heard that.

    Durkon cast Mass Bear's Endurance on everyone in panel #5. That's 26-28 extra hit points right there.

    That is a good point, Ganurath. The problem is that Banish is only a Close Range spell, and I'm guessing V doesn't have a Metamagic Enlarge rod.

    I hope V sleeps soon, her gruesome mug is really creeping me out. Also, shouldn't she run out of spells soon, since the comic is still running on Vancian 3.5 magic, where Wizards are really sleepy and forgetful?

    I'm pretty sure that's the exact point of this comic. V's faculties have been ravaged by his/her lack of trancing, so much so that he/she is incapable of even realizing that his/her faculties have been ravaged at all.

    I was kinda hoping V would get ko'd by the hit just like Durkon. Hasn't anyone told V that no sleep = poor thought process meaning less effectiveness in figuring out a solution?

    You don't need to sleep (or in V's case, trance) to study spells.

    Also, minor art nitpick: Qarr's cut seems to be from his left shoulder to his right hip (vaguely) through comic 584, except in the last panel - though his body turns, his right shoulder is still his right and his left is still his left - yet the cut reverses to angle from his right shoulder to his left hip. Similarly, in the last panel he's seen in in comic 585, the same reverse was made.

    in the the strip before- the demon thing was next to about 10+ boats, probably with catapult in most- I think that makes it a fair fight




    also: no sleep and no belker-booming make V something-something

    To make spoiler tags, but the text you want to hide between [ spoiler] and [ /spoiler] while taking the spaces out. Would te catapults be hindered by DR, though?

    V's in a pretty bad way, so presumably one of the other casters will have to step up to the plate...

    Which means, either Durkon or Elan... okay, it means Durkon

    probably not- according to Heros of Battle (D&D book about warfare) the least damaging siege engine deals 2d6 damage and the most 14d6. my moneys on somthing of about 7-5d6 which is an avrage of 15-21 damage from one catapult!(and to make that usless you need one hell of a DR)

    Hi Giant... you forgot to change the number at the top of the strip - it's obscured by speech bubbles, but you can pretty clearly tell that it says 584 instead of 585...

    Great strip, although I don't get Durkon's comment about Mass Bear's Endurance?
