    That will definetly be painful. And even possibly fatal.



    ....but somehow i get the feeling, that they will get away in some stealthy way.

    along with the obvious tactic of removing Belkar's curse, they find that bone fragment that was rattling around in Roy's boot and use it for the Resurrection scroll--which would bring Roy back immediately at full hit points (though at -1 level from when he died). Roy, Belkar, and Haley along with some sylph lightning from Celia and whatever support magic the cleric can provide should make short work of the three rogues seen above, unless they get reinforcements.

    What i want to know is why they didnt heal belkar up cause he would have been able to help them with the whole fighting people thing seeing as he is crazily good at killing. Its just stupid. Plus why didnt they get back the body before getting the cleric?

    Oh Blind Pete, you rogue you, may you one day come to see the error of your ways.

    A lot of funny stuff going on. Hope Cleric McTritchy doesn't die yet either.

    And Roy's brand of disaproval is always good. Subliminal guilt.

    And meanwhile, somewhere far across the ocean:

    I guess that would depend on whether the Cleric would be carrying a valuable scroll like that with him, and whether any of them know the dispelling password.

    That was my first thought. I'd say that they raise Roy and Belkar dies or Belkar gets healed and they go to get Roy's corpse. Not both - didn't the Giant say one of the OotS would die getting Roy raised?

    Why didn't Haley try to contact Elan?

    That's actually a pretty good question, considering she could probably describe him in intimate detail.

    Is it possible she doesn't know Elan's last name?

    Maybe she thought it would be easier to communicate vital details to Durkon rather then Elan... after all, she should know as well as anybody what he can be like.

    Or she could have chosen V instead.

    Hell's bells! Roy had better not be getting raised yet.

    Elan would get "we are in Greyky City, come quick", which leaves her 18 more words.

    V might be too verbose in explaining things to the others.

    Plus why didnt they get back the body before getting the cleric?
    Haley: ...we need him [the Belkster] to help us storm the castle where the body is.
    What i want to know is why they didnt heal belkar up cause he would have been able to help them with the whole fighting people thing seeing as he is crazily good at killing.
    Something of which Celia does [not] approve, under any circumstances. And as for Haley:
    Haley: "I'm not wasting money on a cure for a curse he brought on himself."
    and we know how much money means to Haley. Besides, I get the impression that the Cleric can "cure" the immediate effects, but without the password, can't Dispel the original MoJ curse, so Belkar still couldn't kill anyone in Greysky City without re-triggering it. That's "the catch" which would indeed make it a "waste of money."

    Great strip, Giant!

    I like the cleric, although he's probably going to die. Which means he's going to live, because you're unpredictable. Only you're expecting us to think that, so maybe he'll die after all...

    Oooh, how about we remove too ealrier strips and make that one the 600th :P

    Nah, awesome comic. I like the cleric, though I'm dissappointed with Pete... Meh, it's the girls fault for teasing him.
    Alas, poor Belkar. But they'll probably need to get him back in shape, so he can help them out. Otherwise they'd need a miracle (or deus ex machina)

    Dark Wolf, Regeneration can regrow missing limbs and organs (it takes longer then merely re-attaching them, though). How long would using a Ressurrection scroll take if there is a toe bone?

    Which you'd expect, given he's a cleric of Loki, an evil god. But that's funny too, since Loki actually stands out from the rest of the pantheon in being clean-shaven - it's like not having a beard is a mark of evil in the North...

    Ah betrayal. It makes the world shrivel up and die round.
    It is a contraction of Evil DM Mark 3. I don't know why why so many have difficulty with a standard contraction but there we are.

    So it seems that Cleric's getup is sort of standard for Clerics of "Evil" gods?

    Well till now I get a chaotic neutral vibe from him more then anything else (which isnt really surprising, Loki is more about chaos then evil really.)

    Exactly as much time as it would take if it was the whole body. You really only need a small part of the body to completely resurect someone, the whole body is only necessary with raise dead. The only problem is that I think they have to destroy the bone golem first or it wont work (at least thats how it work with undead but I'm not sure about golems).

    For a second though I thought he meant "Hooray I'll get my eyes fixed. They're in the basement. I'll just go get them". I can be a bit slow sometimes.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    Remnants of party from previous DM's campaign appeared in a ruined castle along with new players after they stopped a ritual that went wrong. They were just in time to stop another ritual.

    Another thought. If this Cleric of Loki wants to last past strip 2, it would behoove him to tell the girls his name soon.
