Elan and Nale match swords, and wits.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Haley aims an arrow at Sabine whilst Nale drops in to swordfight Elan.
Nale: Awww, look, how cute Elan looks holding a sword just like a big boy.
Elan: C'mon Nale! Roll initiative! We're gonna fight!

Panel 2

Nale: Very well, but I'm reasonably certain I already killed you once today. I'd hate for things to get repetitive.

Panel 3

Elan: Why did you stab me, Nale? I'm your brother! Why??
Nale: Why not?

Panel 4

Nale: I gave you a chance to join me. But you'd rather stay with these fools?
Nale: Well, I can't very allow you to continue breathing after an insult like that, now, can I?

Panel 5

Nale moves up close to Elan.
Nale: Because no one denies me, Elan. Not father, not you, no one.

Panel 6

Elan: Deny.
Elan sticks his tongue out at Nale and raspberries/Bronx-cheers with a "thppbbt" in his face.

Panel 7

Elan: Deny.
Elan backs further away while Nale wipes his face with his eyes closed.

Panel 8

Elan: Deny!
Elan tumbles and cart-wheels past Nale whose eyes are still closed.

Panel 9

Elan (singing): ♪♪Deny the psychopathic egomaniac!♪
Elan jabs at Nale's back, his rapier bending like a fencing épée or foil with a "touché!"

Panel 10

Nale faces Elan.
Nale: Looking to make this sporting then? Good. I was afraid I wouldn't be getting any XP for killing you:
Elan (singing): ♪Shut, shut, shut, shut your mouth and fight!♪

D&D Context Edit

  • At the beginning of battle, players roll a 20-sided dice, known as "rolling initiative," to determine the order that characters take their turn in.
  • Like in many RPGs, killing something too far below your level will not net you any experience.
