Redcloak watches Lien fight his summoned octopus. Noises come from off-panel, "SQULCH!"
Redcloak: No, to the left! THE LEFT, you stupid invertebrate! Grapple her from the—
Redcloak: Goddamn it!
- Panel 2
Hobgoblin Cleric: Sir, we could summon sharks of our own…
Redcloak: And give her a free sushi buffet? No thanks.
Redcloak: She can’t take that beast out of the water, so I see no reason to hand deliver more of our resources to its waiting jaws.
The octopus disappears back to the infernal realms off-panel, "poof!"

Redcloak: Summon something land-based instead and send it up the dock.
Hobgoblin Cleric: Toward the celestial lion?
Redcloak: Yeah, I’m sick of it keeping our troops at bay.

Redcloak: It’s like there’s something valuable on board… but then, why haven’t they tried to escape?

Hinjo hits the deck with a "thunk!"
- Panel 10
Redcloak: Your city? Oh, I’m sorry, I thought someone would have told you by now. See, this is MY city now, paladin!
Redcloak: I figure you owe me one village plus 35 years of interest, so this is a good start!

Redcloak: I said I didn’t have many spells left.
D&D Context Edit
- Disintegrate is a 7th level spell for clerics of the Destruction Domain. It delivers 2d6/level damage to a maximum of 40d6. Redcloak is likely 17th level so that would be 34d6. The damage is reduced to only 5d6 with a successful Fortitude saving throw.
- This is the final appearance of the Fiendish Octopus Redcloak summoned. It first appeared in #478.
- This is the first appearance of the Dockside Hobgoblin Cleric.
