D&D Context Edit

  • Vaarsuvius must have a Strength score below 10 if they have a penalty, meaning its a very subpar stat for them. Tables are given in the Player's Handbook for how much a character can carry based on their Strength score.

Trivia Edit

  • This moment begins Haley's long psychological journey with her speaking in cryptograms until #393, a span which covers 148 comics, going into the next book, and over 13 months in real-world time.
