    Is there some enhanced version of Stone Shape that would let the clerics create something akin to a shower head?

    Back In The Day, my DM let us do fine work with such spells if we were willing to expend a lot of time and concentration, and do a lot of practising.

    Well we’ll probably figure it out when we see them in years then (presumably from Veldrina’s Sending).

    I have to wonder how many human children have wondered into that forest for the HPoFenrir to reach this level...

    (Why yes, I do choose to assume they eat literally those two options and nothing else. )

    I think children would stop giving XP well before that point.

    My focus is, admittedly, less on them leveling up and more on them not starving to death before reaching this level.

    The Treeslayers are hilarious, as are the High Priest of Fenrir and the High Priestess of Njord-as-shower.

    I bet the High Priestess of Skadi, Goddess of the Hunt, also objects to a conjured diet, on the grounds that she doesn't eat food that hasn't had a fair chance to defend itself or escape.

    This is the first comic in a while that had me actually laughing aloud. I feel for shower head cleric and organic cannibal cleric, such trying times.

    I wonder if the Westerners and Southerners are also stuck in their godsmoots, if so that might make the three highest level clerics who can do anything Redcloak, Hilgya and Durkon.

    The same place as Minrah, the rest of the Thundershields, and the rest of the Order, offscreen somewhere in dwarven lands.

    Hilgya split a while ago. Either she reclaimed Kudzu, or Rogga is still babysitting.

    Veldrina and Wrecan are stuck too so yes. There is only one Godsmoot and nobody leaves ‘till they’re done.

    ...I kind of hope that.

    Also, I missed the giant beaver and woodpecker the first time I read this comic. Still hilarious, though.

    I don't see it that way. The votes at the Western and Southern godsmoots have already taken place--the whole reason Veldrina was present at this one was to present the results of the western moot. She probably can't leave until the final vote finishes, but that doesn't mean the entire Western moot has to stay in session also, since they don't have a hung vote like occurred here.

    Baths slosh, moving water. Moving water kills vampires. Therefor, baths are an anti-vampire weapon, violating the rules of the Godsmoot. QED.

    A very utopian ideal. More likely a thousand petty grievances build up and each High Priest orders a holy crusade against everyone else.
    except the High Priests of Baldr and Iounn, who'll be at it like knives

    LOL

    (Let's remember, however, that "moving water" is the entire principle of a shower, but incidental to a bath :p )

    So all the high priests are conveniently written out of any possibility of helping the heroes.

    Maybe V could break out Greater Animal Messenger and drop them a line. Then again, given the food situation, there might be a repeat of last time.
