D&D Context Edit

  • "Common" is a name for the language spoken by most inhabitants of D&D worlds. The other language is perhaps Dwarvish.
  • In D&D divine spellcasters like clerics, druids, and rangers pray to their gods to prepare their spells before they can cast them.
  • At 10th level, Clerics can pray to their god for Divine Intervention. If the deity intervenes, the cleric may receive whatever assistance was asked for, for example a healing spell effect. This is what Durkon is doing when he calls ThorPrayer.
  • CSW means Cure Serious Wounds

Trivia Edit

  • The answering machine is referred to in #40, The Gods Must be Busy.
  • This is also the first time Thor is mentioned.
