    Hilgya (and maybe Minrah?) must be up to something.

    Anyway, go get them, Wormie! You're doing great!

    Heh, I thought only Belkar would be affected, as he is after all, a "monster".

    ...

    I'm actually surprised the universe didn't provide V with another chance to use the cat-retrieving version once more (by, say, having Roy fall while holding the cat, and the hand grabbing them both).

    Actually being caught mid-fall must be a pleasant change of pace for Roy.

    In a bit of a pickle now aren't they.

    I think the plan for Hilgya would be to get her into the moot/meet stealthily, and have her disrupt from the inside before the vampires know what's up.

    It does, doesn't it? The Exarch's poking his hand out of the barrier to cast. V's Force Cage spell was blocked on the previous page.

    Hold monster is a broader version of hold person - literally "like hold person, but affects all living creatures".

    The Exarch cast a non-standard Invisibility Purge. When he ran through the orange barrier, it would have dispelled a standard Invisibility Purge, which is centred on the caster, so Haley's and V's Invisibility would no longer be suppressed.

    Also, "...keep whacking the worm. It's obviously what you're best at." Gotta love Belkar.

    You are right I missed that his hand was out of the barrier because of the black aura, I thought we were seeing it through.

    Follow up, how come Durkon can talk when Hold but Roy can’t?

    Snicker

    From the SRD for Hold Person:
    "Each round on its turn, the subject may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect."

    So I guess Durkon made his second save attempt

    You get a saving throw on your turn. Durkon probably made his, Roy did not.

    Ah so they all failed the first one, Durkon made the second and Roy hasn’t. Okay.
