    It's nice to see that Durkon's mum can be...handy.

    Absolutely beautiful. There were theories before about the rest of Durkon's extended family showing up to help but I didn't actually expect them to appear here and now, I love it.

    Still a poor explanation why he can't blow a single regenerate spell.
    but sure.
    a shield is just +1 to AC anyways.
    or, wait, plus damage if you use a two handed weapon, like, everybody should.


    But still refreshing to see that not everyone hit it off without reason.

    Sigdi best mom. Wonder if she's going to get anything special for Mothers Day here soon?

    As far as I am concerned, this comic can't have too much Sigdi.

    A Little surprised to see Tinna there, but I guess it's an "every advantage Counts" type situation.

    I think the reasoning is, she wouldn't let him. It doesn't really matter what Sigdi's reasoning is. Just that she didn't allow Durkon to do it. And it's not really a surprise. We always knew she didn't want the arm regenerated.

    Looks like the whole gang's here.

    Now, how many of them are of a high enough level to be useful against the vampires?
    How to turn off these annoying sigs:

    1. Edit your profile options.
    2. Scroll down to "Thread Display Options".
    3. Uncheck "Show Signatures".
    4. Save changes.
    5. Enjoy a much less cluttered and noisy forum.

    Ah, another lesson about family is going to given.

    And we know how the people voting will be broken out of the spell. A bards singing isn't an attack or a spell. The best plan can go down the tubes if the enemy knows what it is. And in this case the Order knows the plan BETTER than the Vamps do.

    Well. I guess that solves the whole "they only have 5 or 6 dwarves who can go past the orange barrier" problem. And with their age, they probably have the wisdom to somewhat resist domination gaze.

    Guess they have plenty of dwarves to get into the inner chamber.

    As for helping - if they all had crossbows, it would be better, but numbers are just good.

    Like the dwarf twins in the foreground!!

    Nice to see how things progressed. At first I wondered if the caster was Logann's mother, but then I realized it was probably his sister. I see Shirra's Twin sons grew up too, and their parents are in the back as well...

    Truly, Sigdi does seem to have all the hands she needs here.

    I suspect that she's also correct that giving her one additional arm in this fight is not in fact worth a seventh level slot. We don't know her level, but we do know that she wasn't rich even before she paid for five raise dead spells (which she could only do because someone handed her 25,000 GP worth of treasure).

    High levels tend to have lots of money in D&D land.

    Sometimes people make non-optimal choices because of Role Playing reasons. This largely seems to be the case here. She has her personal reasons for feeling it's unnecessary to have the arm regrown. And heck, if she's spent her feats on things like "Specialty it wielding a single one handed weapon without a shield" then regenerating her arm actually isn't optimal use of resources. *Shrug*

    Tinna looks a little scared to me. But after Minrah died, she could not really keep putting off going into battle. And if I recall she previously said how useless she would be in battle. And so apparently Rogo's contribution to the battle is looking after Kudzu.
    Ever wondered how many games are mentioned in the comic? I have listed them all in a geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2...es-order-stick

    Sure it is; she didn't say not to do it, she said not to do it before the fight. Sounds like she'll accept it once there's no urgent matters to attent do with high level magic.

    Also, are the dwarves gonna protest? I want a dwarven protest! Go, my dwarven friends, disrupt that council!

    I think Hilgya may finally realize what Durkon is thinking about when he talks about "family" and "marriage." She may yet come about! [romantic heart-eyes emoji]

    Anyone else filled with the certainty that Sigdi is about to get her honourable death? The circle is complete, her reward and reunion are nigh.

    I love that Sigdi's family is basically its own adventuring party with class levels, bard included!

    I hope she will at least let Durkon heal her arthritis to the remaining hand though. That seems like a more pressing need

    Hooray! new comic!

    What a powerful final panel, especially after the story that got us this far (explaining who they are). I never expected to see the power of "good" so plainly manifest in a situation of dire need. It motivates me to continue being good as well.
