    Umm... I think I can sort of guess, but I could also be barking up the wrong tree.

    Yeah! Just like real D&D.

    If you've got enemies with get-away-abilities like teleport, you've really got to follow V's tactic and Dimensional Anchor them before they decide to run away.

    I genuinely was not expecting that - both the fact that Tarquin bugged out and the fact that he took Nale with him.

    Belkar stole the show here, but I liked Tarquin as well (though I'm not going to try too hard to figure his innuendo out...)

    Okay, so everyone's status:

    Sabine banished to the lower planes.
    Qarr "Pop"ped somewhere. I'm assuming that's a teleport.
    Z, Tarquin, Kilkil, and Nale teleported out.
    Malack is still floating around and extremely likely to explain everything.
    Mummies are dead, other than the one that fell in with V which we don't know about.

    The Order is basically fine:
    Durkon and Belkar have some damage--Belkar's deafness will probably wear off soon.
    V is floating around like Malack. Blackwing is chasing him.
    We haven't seen Elan.
    Roy and Haley are totally fine.

    So the ones unaccounted for are Malack, V/BW, and Elan. Speculation time:

    V and Elan meet: V probably spills everything to Elan, who is likely disturbed that he barely missed getting killed, but that scene will probably still end in forgiveness (remember that V is Elan's GF's best friend, and that they do have quite a bit of respect for each other--the scene where Elan wants to take a level in wizard, the scene with the illusory celestial lion...).

    V and Malack meet: Could go a couple ways, but I don't think the cleric of a god of death would be too bothered by familicide.

    Elan and Malack meet: Comedic misunderstandings ensue. Beyond that, I dunno.

    Do what?

    Picking 'Mass CLW' and 'Neutralize Poison' instead of actually useful spells = no ability to meaningfully contribute, sadly.

    I think Belkar deserved that kill, pity he didn't get it. This arc really puts Nale in his place as a second rater, the Order has messed before itself but always has something else to show you. The Linear Guild only looks good when they set everything up to their advantage.

    It makes perfect sense that Tarquin would know a few things about the Drow culture. He had to learn their language to fill out the gift card on the fruit baskets he was sending them.

    Just because it's hinted at somewhere within the story doesn't make it plausible and believable.

    I don't play D&D but isn't it pretty easy to end up learning a bunch of languages? Doesn't seem that implausible considering he works with evil people, he relies heavily on charisma and communication, and . . . naa I sort of agree. I hate all the d-riding on Tarquin. Stupid annoying.

    I respectfully submit the contrary, as General Tarquin's mastery of cunning linguistic techniques, verbal and nonverbal, had been aptly illustrated just a few panels earlier in this strip.

    By definition, it makes it more plausible. Believable is in the eye of the beholder.

    Wrong. It's a drinking fountain- i.e. a fountain that provides water for you to lean over and scoop up, or, in what Tarquin's getting at, stick your face in and suck in with your mouth.

    It's an oral sex joke, which goes with Tarquin's obsessed with sex/Casanova/both schtick.

    Basically, any arcane caster with access to 4th level spells is never truly in danger, considering he's just a somatic-componentless spell away from safety (barring very elaborate setups, traps or enemies wasting turns trying to lock him down). Fights get a lot more tension when neither side has an instantaneous escape route available and retreats become risky endeavors.
    I think outright banning something is the lazy solution. In a world where teleport (telepork?) spells exist there would logically be precautions that were commonly taken to avoid their abuse.

    If you have access to 4th level spells you are a badass. You've earned the right to waltz in to an encampment of goblin bandits, take their golden idol and teleport out before they knew what hit them.

    If you go up against an opponent with as much experience as you however, you should expect them to be prepared for Scry/Teleport shenanigans. In fact, my players eventually figured out that many NPCs were so paranoid of scry-n-die attacks that they would often take elaborate precautions against them, simultaneously leaving large gaps in other areas of their defense.

    Details like this, I felt, made the world feel a lot more "real."

    I'm inclined to think that the Order's plan is over, with the LG teleporting out. I'm not sure they had any plans beyond the initial ambush, so I doubt there's anything left to mess up.

    They can compare the axe to the one Tarquin carries, by having Elan cast Summon Plot Exposition.

    Of course, the real clue is that the Unknown Fighter took Nale with him, showing an untoward loyalty that the Linear guys aren't known for.

    It's used for the same reason the Military use hand signals; Silent communication. Which, given the paranoid Backstabbing Drow engage in, is very important. I believe it's one of the automatic languages for Drow.
