Vaarsuvius saves the team again, but doesn't get any credit.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Roy: As near as I can tell, this pit is where the starmetal meteor crashed so long ago.
Haley: Hey, didn't you say it was going to be guarded by—
Roy: Don't.

Panel 2

Roy: Everyone ready for a climb check?
Elan: Ooo! Me! Me!
Vaarsuvius: Climb...? Are we not camping until the morn so that the dwarf might return me to my proper form?

Panel 3

The party begins to climb down into the pit.
Vaarsuvius: Unbelievable! Do you not know the importance of having an arcane caster in the party?
Elan: Climb, climb, climb, climb the slippery rock face.
Vaarsuvius: An arcane caster who is not a bard, rather?

Panel 4

Haley: Wow, watch out guys. This really IS pretty slippery.

Panel 5

Durkon slips.
Durkon: Whoa! Whoa!

Panel 6

Durkon falls down the shaft, taking out the other party members as he goes, "THUNK! CRASH!"

Panel 7

Vaarsuvius: Feather Fall.

Panel 8

The party lands gently in water below.

Panel 9

Roy: Wow, that was a very difficult tunnel to climb down, but I've gotta give credit where credit is due.
Vaarsuvius: I should hope so.

Panel 10

Roy: Elan, without your magical bard song, we would have all fallen to our deaths.
Elan: Thanks, Roy! Even I don't know how I did it!
They walk away on the wet cavern floor, "splish splish splish splish splish splish".

Panel 11

Vaarsuvius: ...
Vaarsuvius: Am I even in this party anymore?

D&D ContextEdit

  • The arcane magic casters are Bards, Sorcerers, and Wizards.
  • Climb checks are governed by Strenth and the Armor Check penalty. As we learned in #25, Durkon's armor penalty is -6.
  • Feather Fall is a 1st-level Wizard spell that makes objects fall more slowly.
