    The bridge looks great.

    Hoping we get to see the worm's quickened cones of cold.

    What worries me is the fact that once all the dwarf will be inside the building, there will be no more cleric with the team fighting the death worm...

    Once the worm learns the party canít go through the door, there might not be much reason left to fight.

    That's a good point. The worm was told to defend the platform thing and prevent anyone from getting through that door into the Middle Chamber. Anyone except the vampires and their mind-controlled thralls. Didn't say anything about the window up top.

    Im guessing casting song of freedom doesnt count as casting a spell, since its a class feature. So a good idea would have been V casting mindblank on the dwarf bard, he goes in the council frees the dudes (at least long enough for them to vote no on blasting the universe.) I didnt got the feeling that they got time to prepare something like that though.

    Awesome comic, as always.

    Edit: I checked, the wall turns to stone anyone casting a spell or a supernatural effect, song of freedom is considered a spell-like ability, so I guess its a no go from inside the blue barrier, and outside, since it blocks sounds. Hmmm.

    It's still a spell-like ability.

    Usually, a spell-like ability works just like the spell of that name.

    A spell-like ability takes the same amount of time to complete as the spell that it mimics (usually 1 standard action) unless otherwise stated. Spell-like abilities cannot be used to counterspell, nor can they be counterspelled. In all other ways, a spell-like ability functions just like a spell:

    I'm still wondering how the Dwarves are going to get through the window and into the building without shattering their ankles. Seems like at least a 30 foot drop to the floor? Unless there's a 2nd floor?

    The old "Cleric's Feather Fall." Or the old Bard's Feather Fall, it's only a first-level spell. Not as funny though.

    Durkon is just the best dwarf, isn't he.

    On a side note, I guess Roy emulates after Jonah and the whale.

    Durkon isn't going with them, though, he's on the wrong side of the chasm.

    Most likely this is where the windows lead to.

    Looks like Durkon's going with them in the last panel, though. Hopefully Elan prepared plenty of cure spells.

    Bards are spontaneous casters in this edition, they don't prepare spells.

    Oh, you're right, Kandro pulled him up.

    Well I guess he can throw a cure critical wounds at the Worm in passing, then.

    Elan both has a freshly recharged Cure Moderate Wounds wand as well as Cure Critical Wounds and Mass Cure Light wounds in his known spells. They'll be fine.

    So no pointless 15-page debate about the comparative morality of entering a building via the windows? Nobodyís going to take the position that entering via the window is a crime against humani... uh, dwarfanity?

    Thatís rather refreshing, for some reason.

    Give it time. We're only on page three for crying out loud.

    And Kandro is right. Durkon isn't limited to hearing bard puns once a week. He gets them all the time!

    Well, Gontor has taken a very strong position on doors. And, I do have a soft spot in my heart for Gontor.

    If youíd like, I can post hundreds of pages of posts claiming that using doors incorrectly is dishonorable, and how that makes Hel and Gontor the good guys.

    Or, we can talk about Star Wars.
