    Love the way Roy's body is all bendy because he's been drinking.

    And Minrah joins us! Yay!
    Geez, what is it with that guy and needing to figure out all the fiddly little details?

    I know, right? It's called "Suspension of Disbelief"...

    Was not expecting Minrah to come along permanently. Not sure why I did not expect it given she got resurrected, but still surprised and nice to see.

    Also, I was starting to get worried nobody would take the time to get a drink while in the Dwarven lands. Didn't Durkon complain about not having a decent beer in 20 years? At least that can be solved in this hour of downtime.
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    I think that's just him leaning back while sitting.

    Also, I love Minrah's in-your-face interface.

    I'm wondering what is up with Hilgya and Kudzu, myself. OK, she's satisfied her thirst for vengeance and proven to be a petty, self-serving jerk, like her deity.

    Also I'd like to think Durkon would be able to get off a Regeneration or at least a Cure Disease (Arthritis) for his ma.

    And why is V so irritated about this? Can elves not drink?

    Always good to see Roy loosen up. See, LG doesn't have to mean boring! (And he met most of the party in a bar, now that I think of it.)

    Given what they're up against, Minrah will level crazy fast - if she survives

    Hmm - do they have time for him to pray for new spells?

    Aw, Iím glad that we get to see more Minrah. I hope that the telling of deeply personal things goes well for her. And look at Belkar being a valuable member of the team for once!

    Sadly, you can only gain one level at a time, so any encounter that gives the rest of the party noticeable XP will probably level her exactly 1 level and leave her 1 XP short of the next level.

    She explained why she didn't want a new arm a while back, didn't she? It's because her missing arm, wherever it is, is still holding the hand of her dead husband. That hasn't changed in the intervening years, it wasn't like she was just sat there waiting for Durkon to level up enough to regenerate it for her.

    Not sure how up to date the top post of the Class and Level geekery thread is, but if it's accurate Minrah is around 10 levels below the rest of the party. Though there's a fair bit of wiggle room there (we know she's at least level 5, but could be higher, and she may have leveled from recent events)

    Is it just me or does that last line not bode very well? Minrah is alone with a vamp on the loose just in time for an end-of-book stinger.

    i'm probably overreacting but that's just the vibe i got from it.

    So Minrah is indeed coming along. Well, that was expected: not only she was ressurected because she wanted to help, but also she has been given THREE names. C'mon, who has three names in the comic? Probably just her and Durkon. Of course she was going to be important.

    It's not multi-class shaming so much as it's low-level shaming; 'specially since dwarves have Favored Class: Fighter anyways.

    Also, as long as she doesn't fight things with 8+ CR higher than her ECL, she'll be getting XP fine, and I bet she'll help with holding down the mooks so Roy can focus on hitting Xykon in the face.

    More like had bad experiences with alcohol being consumed to excess before.

    And probably assumed Greenhilt had more control than to go wild on the booze.

    Ah, Belkar, you little lush.

    As far as Roy's Lawful status go, given that this is the Dwarven lands, getting drunk is actually the Lawful thing to do. Why, what's more lawful than participating in local traditions in their intended manner?

    Would if I could, but I'm in the same boat.

    I think its referring to Minrah joining.

    So maybe she can get 2 levels per encounter, as long as she works for a little bit of roleplaying experience for that last 1 XP.

    Anyway, I wasn't sure if Minrah was actually going to end up joining, but it'll be kind of fun to see where this goes. Hopefully by not burning to death because of a meteor swarm...she's high enough level to cast protection from fire, isn't she?

    Also, wondering if they've rescued not-thad yet, or if he's still tumbling down that slope.
