Haley finds out that Belkar can be a little uncontrollable.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Haley: Wow, this camp is pretty well guarded. I don't know how we'll get in.

Panel 2

Belkar: What we need is a distraction. Why don't I knock this torch over and set one of the tents on fire.
Haley: I don't think so, Belkar.

Panel 3

Haley: V, are you still invisible?
Vaarsuvius (invisible): Can you see me?
Haley: No.
Vaarsuvius (invisible): Then I suppose that answers your question.

Panel 4

Haley: V, try to walk by those guards. See if they notice you at all.
Vaarsuvius (invisible): As you command.

Panel 5

Belkar: What would really help is a distraction. Let's set a tent on fire.
Haley: No, Belkar.

Panel 6

Vaarsuvius (invisible): I have returned.
Vaarsuvius (invisible): They seemed to be incapable of discerning my invisible form.
Haley: Perfect. Then here's the plan—
Belkar: Set a tent on fire?

Panel 7

Haley: NO! For the last time, Belkar, we are NOT setting a tent on fire! We're trying to sneak in without letting them know anything is wrong, so no, no, NO fires!

Panel 8

Belkar holds a torch.

Panel 9

Belkar sets a tent on fire.
Belkar: Screw it.

Panel 10

The tent goes up in flames, and the smoke outlines Vaarsuvius' invisible form.
Bandit (off-panel): Look! Intruders!

Panel 11

Vaarsuvius, Haley, and Belkar flee amidst a hail of arrows.
Haley: Don't worry about outrunning the bandits—worry about outrunning ME!
Belkar: See, now, if you'd shown me that sort of discipline a minute ago, we wouldn't be in this situation!

D&D Context Edit

  • V most likely used the 2nd level Invisibility spell to become invisible.
