    Lol! Okay. I love dwarves in this world. I'm now considering implementing the dwarven curse in my next campaign I run just to see how it plays out.

    Well, we know now that the cousin's brother-in-law's niece's fiancee is considered a dwarf for the orange barrier's purposes. I wonder if you are allowed in if you are only half dwarf?

    That's how I assume all Scottish is translated, at least.

    I know, right? I was quoting it too.

    We were bamboozled.

    Also it's even worse than Scottish. It's Glasgewian.

    Frankly I think that speaks more to the vigor and fight the old dwarf still had in him then it does to the deathworm's failures. At the very least the deathworm has been keeping the rest of the OotS busy, which is more than a dozen vampire spawn could do.

    Also the vampires had the advantage of secrecy and surprise. I highly doubt they could have ever done as well as they did if their presence and plans were known.

    I love taking a bizarre idea and then following it to its logical conclusion. "Way to finally get got!"

    And yes -- dwarves are weird.

    Kandro took the second chance to get into Valhalla. Took him long enough though.

    Clearly they shouldn't have bothered with the deathcrawler and just gated a bunch of extra vampires.
    Hel and the vampire thought they needed something that could hold up a high-level adventuring party. And considering the 'nobody but dwarves allowed' barrier, they thought the only one they really needed to worry about was Durkon. Bringing in the biggest, nastiest thing you can get your hands on makes sense in that situation. Multiple weaker vampires (or just multiple lesser critters provided through the Gate) would be the play if you think you need to counter multiple weaker opponents - as mean as the nightcrawler is, outside of some limited spell-like abilities it can only be in one place at a time and attack one foe at a time (and note that it was ordered to 'defend this platform area thing', so it actually needed to be able to take some initiative to decide that actually meant 'don't let anybody through the orange barrier.') Basically Hel had no idea Durkon's extended clan would be showing up.

    Look how Sigdi makes sure everyone comes through safely...
    And how the dwarfs react to one of their dinner Club getting eaten... chill. But also kinda funny ,,He finally got get"
    Also, what does the Death Worm say after its tongue get cut? I have trouble figuring it out, which is sad, since it is probably quite funny...

    "I have no idea what you just said by I'm pretty sure I should be insulted by it", or something like that.
    And just before he eats Kandro "Okay, that's it!"

    In my defense that Giant has proven himself able to sneak a lot of information past pretty much the entire forum multiple times. And the wolf is grey.

    How has no-one talked about Sigdi's axe yet? It very much reappeared in her hand after she very much lost it down the pit.

    Is it a weapon of legacy?

    Maybe Kandro dropped his and she picked it up?

    edit: nope - hers was full two-bladed and his wasn't.

    Maybe it's a spare. Not everyone is like Roy with his pathological need to only ever use a single weapon

    Nightcrawlers drain levels from creatures they swallow. It was negative energy, basically.
