Congenio Ioun was a talented wizard who created his first item: congenio pebble at the young age of 33 years. He created approximately thirty of them. Later he renamed them ioun stones. When he was 955 he "passed away to the realms of Gods". In case of powerful arcanist it is rather vague and uncertain statement.

Ioulaum was born almost two centuries years later and was creator of the first mythallar and lived for about three thousands years before vanishing from Netheril.

Y-... you know... leaving the "me" out that was supposed to come after "Britney" just makes this... sadder than it already was.

Daggum, me. Can't even get a joke about my own mistakes right... >.>

Dear, sweet Tacticslion, let me emphatically state that you are NOT the first who ever confused two parts of Realmslore... =)

Awwwww, Bloodfeast checking if Blackwing was okay is adorable!

Lots of nice touches in that one.

I love that the house cat knows an enemy when it sees one and tries to attack the vampire, while the tiger sits around looking confused. And the Star Trek quote while trying to reach V was great, too.

I think it's less confusion and more fear. Little Whiskers was established to be a bit... cowardly wary of things and other creatures.

To be fair to Little Whiskers, who has challenged Mr. Scruffy and yet lives?

Ultra bauble indeed. Great way to translate the bonus to Appraise ;-)


Are we supposed to know what the new bracelet is?

My personal vote is he is going for the Teleportation Orb.

1. Drakula said he couldn't have done it without Roy's assistance.
2. Gontor is in V's room.

My only thing is, I don't know why he wants it unless his plan is to go break the gate to force the gods to end the world for Hel to get the dwarven souls.

You were right about Gontor's target.

As for the why, maybe the Orb can be used to circumvent the barrier that prevents the representatives from leaving.

Note that the barrier apparently does not prevent people from entering.

Hard to say, Mr. Burlew does suffer from a chronic illness. This is why his update schedule is erratic.

I'm guessing V will actually notice that Blackwing is feeling real physical pain, and that it's different from what he was emoting before.

The Exchange

I was thinking maybe V would notice the bite marks on the tiger.

also deep down I was hoping the vampire would grab the puppet.

Silver Crusade

Yeah, the bite marks on the tiger will be a clue, but not necessary, since Blackwing can just tell them what happened.

I liked the spawn exploiting the loophole in its master's orders. Fitting for a LE mentality.

And I wonder how much of it is the spawn/Gontor trying to unravel Durkula's plan.

My Mom's dog found out the hard way why you do not mess with cats. He is now VERY respectful around the cats to the point where he will not come into the house if there is a cat near the door.

That said, dogs that have grown up around cats often find that the best way to deal with them is to disregard their tantrums and pernickety ways and treat them like... dogs. With hilarious results as cats tend to object to a cold wet nose near their ass.

Poor Belkar - ready for his big dramatic moment and I'm guessing it will be all resolved by the time he gets there - for better or worse.

So just how many vampire spawn has Durkula created? He got the other dwarf, but did we see him turn this big hammer guy?

Edit: We see Big Hammer Guy as a non-vampire in strip 994. We did not see him get turned. Durkula had to do it off screen, so I'm guessing he turned all of the creed.

Belkar's mowing down a bunch of these vampires will still be important for the continued survival of the heroes.

Even if he turned all the creed, does he really have enough spells/charges left to get them all vampified in a day?


I'm wondering if Roy's going to be one of those vamped...

EDIT: For the record, I really, really doubt it, but there's something about switching over to Belkar right now, and about his dialogue that suddenly gave me that idea. It's unlikely... but it was a little "huh"-inducing, nonetheless.

Unlikely... Considering there was already an entire arc with Roy killed.

"Though, you know - options open."


1 person marked this as a favorite.

There are a dozen or so clerics around to bring Roy back, but how would he get vamped? Durkula brought up the antilife shell for a reason—Roy was kicking his ass in the third quarter.


Exactly why I find it unlikely. But Belker's dialogue was still kind of ominous in that regard, beyond the "another vampire" line.


Belkar described the mist he saw as Gontor Hammerfell (the first person Durkula turned into a vampire, today), and it looked like the mist was leaving, so this also sets up the timing that Belkar is arriving at the moot just after Durkula asked his spawn to head to the airship.

At first, I thought so, but if you look at the last panel, it looks like the mist is in the doors beyond the goliath* hammer guy.

Yeah, I think that mist is the dwarven vampire returning from the airship.

Even if the HPoH didn't have enough juice to raise everyone in the creed as vampires, I think it's safe to assume that they are all dead.

Belkar is pointing up the mountain in the second-to-last panel, as well. Things are about to go down.

True ... Except our intrepid Ranger is weaponless and has yet to take a level of Monk. (Not that he has the Wisdom for it.)

I don't think that Belker is every actually weaponless.

Good points. I stand corrected.
