    great comic! so that's what it took to make Roy give up the hope of there still being a ol' buddy Durkon behind the vampire...

    [on a side note: so happy to finally be online right when the Giant was uploading a new comic! =P =]]

    YES!!! The slip has been made! Let loose the the blade of total annihilation! Heh, at first I actually thought he had screwed about about having a brother at all. I forgot about the little tyke. I figured durkon made hims crew up with julie or whatever his sisters name was. But now im wondering specifically what he said wrong. Either way, I think our favorite warrior is about to take a spontaneous level in berserker rage. Of course, durkula still has his mist ability, im not sure how that will be effected by his disruption effect or whatever its called.

    So the glow is emotion drived. Or wanted to wait the perfect opportunity... Maybe the sword spent too much time near Elan.

    This is a misinterpretation of what just happened. There are no fake memories. Durkon does not have the power to show the spirit anything that didn't happen.

    It might be because I just woke up and the ol' brain is not working on all cylinders yet, but I don't get how Roy figured it out.

    Oh my goodness, that was amazing! Roy shows no damage, is that because of Artistic license, or does that sword ability heal?

    Wow that one felt painful to read. The dialogue did not work at all for me, especially the end with Roy suddenly deciding that was not Durkon. I mean I thought the vampire was doing a good job acting like someone who had his head messed with like a helm of opposite alignment. I did like the action!

    Durkon cannot show HPoH fake memories - HPoH has access to all of Durkon's memory. HPoH has shown that he cannot string together commonalities between two memories.

    I don't think Durkon can feed him fake memories. I think Roy is just realizing that this level of sadism doesn't fit "Durkon, but Evil," especially since he's claiming Durkon was a jerk retroactively ("one thing I've always wondered").

    Interesting.

    Roy's body and eyes are glowing with the aura... is this JUST his sword, or has Roy activated something else just now?
    "When will I ever stop telling stories? Well, you see..."

    That's what loyal teammates do for each other, isn't it? You know, when they're not busy getting new haircuts.

    Thanks for the clarification.


    I wonder if we're going to actually get to see what Durkon showed to HPOH and what caused him to get it mixed up like that. Hoping the next strip is Durkon gloating.
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    I think Giant was listening to some classic Everclear when he wrote the dialogue for panel 13.

    I bet Roy did tell Durkon...later. Plus not even evil Durkon would do this. And also casually talking about throwing Belkar off the side of the mountain.

    But yes! This is even better than I thought it would be!

    Yes FINALLY! So nice, and also fun to see yet another villain falling for the whole "lets stand around and talk to much" bit when he could have just drained the rest of him and ate him as a snack.

    Sorry, I meant context-free (so the memory of Roy telling Durkon about Eric, but leaving out that Eric didn't leave a body or similar).

    Hoo man, the new art style still gets me. That's some real hero looking stuff.

    What happened to Roy's damage in the last panel though?
