D&D Context Edit
- The ghost template does not take away spellcasting powers. This comment also puts a lower bound on V's charisma stat, since a character must have a charisma of 6 to become a ghost.
- Dispite Roy's reluctance to take the Bag of Tricks in #130, Itempalooza, he makes good use of it here.
- This is the first appearance of the Bag of Tricks Cat.
- This is the first appearance of the Executioner Bandit.
