    Awesome comic, I check the website probably twice a day for updates. (Then I skulk the forums for a laugh)
    Considering how old the other dwarves were making him out to be, he's also likely well past middle-aged and well into Old, which means he's probably fighting with at least a -3 to STR, DEX, and CON, though +2 to INT, WIS, and CHA. I wonder if he has a prestige class like Dashing Swordsman that uses the CHA modifier while saying an insult?

    Here we see the advantages of using Gate to summon stuff that is actually aligned with your goals rather than merely compelled by the spell.

    It's ironic that the same strip that establishes the worm as a non-joke villain by having it kill someone (even if he was totally on board with the idea) also makes it even more ridiculous by how it talks with half a tongue.

    ...Although Kandro's last words give it a run for its money.

    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    Since she was knocked backwards, she probably slid down the ramp and is back with the Order. Maybe she can school Elan on proper punning while providing a bit of Bardic Music to boost the combatants.

    Yeah. She didn't need to be saved, because she made her Reflex save to get on the side of the rupture with less danger.

    AFAIK, the name of Squeaky's apprentice has only been mentioned once before, so either one is equally likely to be the typo.

    I suspect Thor is rules-lawyering, given that he doesn't really believe that trees are dangerous. He'll use whatever ridiculous logic he needs to keep his dwarves away from Hel.

    Anybody else noticed that the shot of Hoskin reaching for Sigdi's hand is very similar to the one shot of Sigdi reaching for another dwarf in the first strip introducing her?

    A round of applause for Kandro! He got got real good.

    I wonder whether that's more of a testament to him being inactive or being really badass in a fight? As the saying goes, "old people don't get to be that way by being easy to kill", which is probably kind of a dilemma for high-leveled dwarves.

    Good catch. I knew that was symbolic of something, just couldn't place it. The design resembles Kandro, but I think that's just a limitation of the medium considering my impression of their ages.

    Kandro may still be alive - the Giant made sure to include his movement in panel 7 of the second page. Would be weird to include it if he was just going to die, and I'm sure there's a good joke in there somewhere.

    ...Have we taken a moment to appreciate he literally pointed out the worm is penis-shaped repeatedly while fighting it?

    Also, bleh. Of course the bad guy's summons follow the spirit instead of the letter of the request. Though, I guess he did want to "treat himself."

    Funny thing is, the Deathworm is more respectful of the spirit of things than his master is.

    I think the dwarves are not going to worry so much about turning to stone past the blue barrier, so long as they can each get one effective spell or attack in to save the world. The Bet may ruin Hel's plan.

    Kandro is gone now but at least he died happy. Since he now gets to spend his days drinking with Thor.

    It's showing that he's going down fighting; what, just because he's taking 2d8+12 bludgeoning damage, 12 acid damage and a negative level in there, you think he's going to roll over? That's not the Dwarven way, it's not ghe Glaswegian way, and it's certainly not the Glaswegian Dwarven way!

    The connection between the scenes had occurred to me, but I hadn't noticed how intentionally the panels mirror one another.

    Considering how they have to die in battle with honor to get to Valhalla, it is actually the most sane decision. Of course if it wasn't for the fact that Hel is trying to usurp the Dwarven pantheon with her evil plan, this would've been actually a celebratory moment for the whole gang!
