Haley climbs some meta-walls to get the material component for Resurrection.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Celia and OOTS are teleported by V to where V ported the Azurite fleet, "pop!"

Panel 2

Vaarsuvius: I do not see why you would want to reunite with the dreadfully tedious Azurites...
Haley: Look, once we get Roy back, he can tell us exactly where Girard's Gate is, and you can 'port us right there.

Panel 3

Haley: But we need to resurrect Roy first, don't we? And this is as good a place as any, and better than most. Durkon?
Durkon: Well tha first step is, we need ta find a way ta destroy tha bone golem 'fore we can—

Panel 4

Vaarsuvius shapeshifts to pink dragon and crushes the bone golem, "CRUNCH!"

Panel 5

Roy: Whoa.
Durkon: Uh...OK. Well, I prepared Resurrection this mornin' based on Haley's Sendin' message...
Durkon: So now all I gotta do is take tha bones and these diamonds tha I've been savin' in—

Panel 6

Durkon: Thar gone! Me diamonds're missin'!!
Roy: Typical, really.
Durkon: Thay were jus' ere when we were walkin' thro Greysky City...
Haley: *sigh*

Panel 7

Cut to Greysky City, two pickpockets examine the bag they stole.
Pickpocket: We are the most awesome pickpockets in the ENTIRE WORLD!

Panel 8

Durkon: We cannae raise Roy from tha dead wi'out a diamond ta serva as tha spell component!
Roy: Of course we can't.
Vaarsuvius: I suppose I shall need to travel to the Plane of Elemental Earth to acquire another such gem.
Ganonron: It's lovely this time of the year.
Jephton: Really? I've never been
Elan: Oh man! It's a shame you don't still have that giant diamond, Haley.

Panel 9

Haley: What? Which giant diamond?
Elan: The one you're holding on the Cast Page.
Haley: ...
Haley: Wait right here, I'll be back.

Panel 10

Haley climbs along the website index and grabs the diamond from herself.

Panel 11

Haley: Huh, what do you know, it worked.
Elan: You sure it didn't need to stay there?
Haley: Nah, that cast page is painfully outdated anyway. We all look deformed or something.
Haley: I mean, my bow is upside down in half the panels.

Panel 12

Durkon: One Resurrection spell, comin' up!
Belkar: Hot damn! We keep overcoming plot obstacles at this pace, we'll be killing Xykon five strips from now!
Haley: I'm gonna need a receipt for that diamond, incidentally.

D&D Context Edit

  • Shapechange is a 9th level spell which allows the caster to take any form they desire.

Trivia Edit

  • After this comic, the Cast Page comic was edited to show Haley holding an I.O.U. instead of the diamond.
  • In the OOTS cast page there is also a script held by Belkar. The script is the script for the cast page and is full of clichés. Rich Burlew is making a self-deprecating joke about the writing in Order of the Stick with the title of this strip.
