Haley, Elan, and Bandana go wand shopping.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Elan: Did you get whatever it was you needed in there? 
Haley: Check it—

Panel 2

Haley's eyes become stars as she hols eight wands. The panel reads: "WANDS!"

Panel 3

Elan: Wow, thanks, Haley! Those will really come in—
Haley: Hey, hands off! They’re not for you, Elan!
Elan: But…you’re not a spellcaster.

Panel 4

Haley: So what? All you really need to do is wave it around and say the command word.
Haley: Vaarsuvius has been helping me out with those ones I looted off Zz’dtri’s body.

Panel 5

Flashback to Haley and Vaarsuvius on the Mechane experimenting with a wand.
Vaarsuvius: What is so tragic is that this constitutes a marked improvement in technique.

Panel 6

Haley: Every rogue needs a good wand for that magical trick you just can’t duplicate. Back me up, B.
Bandana: I don’t know. Personally, I’ve never really felt the need for one at all.

Panel 7

Haley: Fine then, more wands for me. Except this ones—this is for you, my sweet little secondary healer.
Elan: Oooo! Cure Moderate Wounds!
Haley: Consider it an early Solstice gift.

Panel 8

Elan: Thank you! I promise to use it on you most of all. Except I hope I don’t have to.
Elan kisses Haley, "SMOOCH!"
Bandana: That reminds me. If you folks are headed all the way up north in the winter, y’all should spring for some cold weather gear.

Panel 9

Elan: I just figured Durkon would cast Endure Elements on us every morning, like he did in the desert.
Haley: Yeah…but we probably shouldn’t rely on it. He might need those spell slots when we fight Xykon.

Panel 10

They pass a boarded up building with a partially opened slot in the door.
Haley: OK, after brunch, it’s winter coats for everyone! Then we hit the potion store and stock up! After all—

Panel 11

Close up of the door slot shows two eyes on a green complected face.
Haley (off-panel): We need to be prepared for whatever trouble rears its ugly head!

D&D Context Edit

  • Elan's Cure Moderate Wounds wand will heal 2d8 points +1 point per level. It has a limited number of uses ("charges").
  • The functions of the other types of wands is not yet clear. Haley already possesses a want that enables her to Fly, which she got from Zz'dtri.

Trivia Edit

  • Haley acquires a variety of wands in this comic. One of those will soon prove very useful.
  • In panel 6, Haley and Bandana's exchange is a veiled reference to Bandana's homosexuality. Bandana revealed that her "ex" was a female in #959.
