Does "Murder" lose some of its weight when you can argue that it was really "Murder with the intent to Raise?"

Well, especially if you can argue it was murdered, immediately followed by a Raise.

I mean, a good part of the reason murder is such a serious crime is that it's final. If it's not, a lot of the social attitude towards it would change.

And on the strip itself: The gods don't know about the world in the rift. Oh boy.

I like this reserve rights to incinerate idiocy angle. I may have to adopt this.

Yeah, that 'I reserve the right to respond to idiocy with cleansing divine fire' line made me laugh. Definitely a keeper.


I totally think the world would be better off if idiocy was cleansed more often with divine fire.

That and maybe Thor and the Avengers showing up...

I don't know. By pure coincidence, I'm rewatching Thor Ragnarok, and I'm about to the point where Asgard gets its cleansing fire...

Ummm... yeah. That would seem to be the most important part in all this. That and Belkar finally getting the acknowledgment he deserves for being the only smart one on the team.

Well, there'd certainly be a lot less people on it.

And I like some of those people.


I'm guess you'd think I would be on the list huh?

There are so many good parts in this one that I cannot quote them all :-D

We saw one world inside the rift but now that we know about the previous divine failures, there might be a whole universe there by now.

Also is it the first time a character mentions rifts (ie plural) ?


All I know is Divine fire is cool. :p

Not to mention that even really bright people can do some incredibly idiotic things on occasion.

D-Chess,

Yeah I've done some pretty stupid things in my life. Like getting dragged into seeing Battlefield Earth.

You are one of the reasons Thanos needed to wipe out half the universe! :P

No, he is merely a poor victim. Battlefield Earth and all who made it, on the other hand...

Thanks you Tector. I was a victim. I fully endorsed going to see something OTHER than Battefield Earth.

I still think Belkar isn't quite MCU Loki level of "ready to turn over a new leaf"...but eh.

He's there. I think he's actually fully transitioned to neutral at this point.

What makes you think so ?

Belkar was still gritting his teeth when his faithful Companion activated the Protection from Evil that released him

That means still Evil to me, which I prefer TBH


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Good has always been bad ass. Or do you think Batman isn't good?

And yeah I agree, he's not there so much as "less evil" than before.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Batman is a Solid CG imo.

So I wonder who the 5th last person he would want to marry is? Elan?

I'm guessing more like Nale. :p ;)

I have that in my back pocket for just such occasional.

Durkon's mom would probably refuse it, but he can cast regenerate now right?

She might, correctly, point out that there are serving dwarven warriors that need his spells more.


I feel like a fight with vampires would be anticlimactic at this point. I'm wondering what Rich has in store.

Mmm, I don't know that that point is still compelling considering he's reserved multiple spell slots (that is, spell slots that could have been used for anything else) on a daily basis (as opposed to one per week) just for Sending to let her know he's okay. No one, not even his mother, should be begrudging him one Regeneration at this point (albeit, after the whole "saving the world" thing).

After the whole "Saving The World" thing, I don't think she would have a problem.

I was just looking at the current situation. :)

Too many excellent quotes in that update to pick one to reference.

It's weird that Minrah is still dead, though.

They gotta find the diamonds for her. Just cause Hilgya has them doesn't mean she will share.

Plus they have a few more pressing issues. Also Mama Thundershield is AWESOME. :)

If we were to approximate her class and level (likely not possible) what would you guess?

I'm inclined to a high level Fighter, although maybe around 12th.

It's not just diamonds they need - it's also spells. Durkon doesn't have any spells prepared, and Hilgya already cast Raise Dead twice today. How many do you think she prepared?

Nice toy :-D


For a second there, I thought Thor lost his best friend...then I realized it's just a regular Hammer of Thunderbolts.. ;)


Did he put on gloves for that?

In the original myths, Thor had magic gloves that allowed him to grip anything.

Now that I think about it he also had a magic belt that doubled his strength...

And thus, in AD&D, you could only properly wield a Hammer of Thunderbolts with Gauntlets of Ogre Power and a Belt of Giant Strength.

No longer true by 3.5. Durkon doesn't need to. :)
