    I'm very curious as to who the family members I didn't recognize from the memories are. Maybe they're kids we didn't meet, especially considering Hoskin got married late, or friends of Durkon's aunts and uncles?

    I'm sure Sigdi wouldn't see it that way. So long as she doesn't have an arm she has a connection to the one she lost under the rockfall. As soon as she gets it regenerated, the arm holding her husband just becomes another jumble of old bones that doesn't have anything to do with her.

    Wait, did Minrah actually get resurrected off-panel?

    I remember her arguing with Durkon in the afterlife about her decision to come back, but not actually see it happen. And going back a few strips, the last we saw of her, she was still besides Thor.

    If that were true, she could have just said, "Eh, it took Durkon a while to undestand too." Instead, she had an extra line saying "not before this fight, he needs all the help he can get," which fits fine with a pragmatist who has no issue with eventually getting her arm back.

    Weird.
    Most dwarves have the exact same pose and that gives me a feeling of copy/paste.
    Compare with the hobgoblin charge, where they all have the same face and body type, but the different poses and overall chaos completely suppress that.

    A lot of those goblins look copy/pasted and oriented slightly differently.

    ETA: Conversely, almost none of the dwarves look copy/pasted. Where are you seeing that? The half hidden ones, maybe.

    We've had a pretty significant time skip. The last time we saw the Order, they were settling in to rest and recoup, Durkon was claiming his new hammer, and there were still several hours before the meeting was set to begin. So there's been plenty of time for them to resurrect Minrah, among other things.

    They definitely are, especially those in the background.
    Yet the dwarves feel more copypasted because all their legs are oriented the same way.

    Well, they're running, so there's only so many ways to show the legs. Even then, in remarkably similar poses, they have differences (like the curve of an arm being convex and another concave, for instance).

    Always glad to see Hilgya put in her place. Time for Durkon's family to shine!

    And hopefully the evil death worm doesn't get a killing spree going.

    Good to see Sigdi again. And she is ambiguous to Hilgya as ever

    Also, I like Minrah's approach.

    Iíd like to remind you that one-handed weapons are + Str bonus to damage, while two-handed weapons are +1.5*Str bonus to damage. This means that itís, at best, +1 or +2 to damage.

    Take heart: dying in battle saving a family member? What Dwarf wouldn't want to go out like that? That's, I imagine, partly why ALL of them came: Even if they die, they'll die swinging. Remember, to a Dwarf, dying at age 350, after a long and happy life, is the worst fate imaginable: The fact that you lived that long is a failure, because it means you never took the risks from which heroism is born.

    Sigdi! Armed and armored! Yes!
    You know, I'm starting to like this fight scene.

    She'd better not die heroically, earning her place in Valhalla and giving a last piece of sage advice to Hilgya, in this scene, though...

    Eh, pretty sure that a point of the current storyline is that no, living in a society where you're forced to die heroically or you are doomed to an eternity of torment is not actually a good thing.

    I really doubt that Sigdi dying heroically would be treated as a good thing. Kandro, however...

    Makes sense to me. Dwarves as a race lean strongly towards Lawful, with orderly and disciplined upbringings. Dwarves charging in with the same pose shows training that they hold strongly to, even when they're a ragtag band of extended family going to kick butt and probably forget about names.

    The most interesting parallel to to me is between Sidgi and Hilgya. Both gained fantastic wealth through their own actions and mistakes, at the cost of their own family (granted, one was killed by a cave in fighting a troll, and the other was made destitute by Hilgya's meddling), while pregnant no less.

    But whereas Sidgi used her wealth to make herself a new family that has grown into what is practically Clan Thundershield at this point, Hilgya has done nothing with the wealth but enrich herself.

    Hilgya is a selfish individual, but we've always known that. The fact that she thinks about herself before anything else is one of her defining character traits. Sure, she's taking care of her son, but even that relationship has a sort of element of possessiveness to it - that's HER son, she's take care of him however she likes, taking him into danger notwithstanding. I'm wondering if, much like Belkar, seeing what she could accomplish if she wasn't such a colossal bitch might start turning her towards a better path. She hasn't spent her fortune yet entirely, she just used a few diamonds so far.
