D&D Context Edit

  • Evasion is an ability that some classes like Rogue and Monk gain that allows them to fully dodge large magical attacks. Most characters can only avoid some of the damage.
    • High level Rangers can also Evade, as was demonstrated by Belkar in #469.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first time Elan uses his Bard Magic (unless you count "Summon Plot Exposition" in #13). Most of the spells Elan employs are illusions. It would later become a running gag that the only illusion he can usually think of is a female of whatever species he's facing at the time.
  • In panels 6 and 7, Elan's hair is abnormal.
