Belkar's moment of glorious return is ruined by the rest of the party.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1, Page 1

Goliath: Grrrarrr!
Goliath swings and misses with his enormous war hammer, "WMPFCH!"
Belkar: Oh, I'm sorry. I thought vampires had fast reflexes or something.

Panel 2, Page 1

Belkar: I guess we can throw that into the pile of untrue vampire myths—
Belkar: —like that they can all fly, or that they're interesting conversationalists.

Panel 3, Page 1

Belkar (thinking): OK, I got this.
Belkar (thinking): Who needs weapons? I can beat this loser. Or at least get him the hell out of my way.

Panel 4, Page 1

Goliath: Master said to smash you for Hel!
He swings and misses again, "WOOSH!"
Belkar: Eh, Master says a lot of stuff, like, "Ach! That manly halfling just chopped off my head!"
Belkar: Wait, that one's still in the future. But you get the idea.

Panel 5, Page 1

Belkar (thinking): If he charges me, I can trip him and give him a good push over the side of the mountain.
Belkar (thinking): I don't care if he can rock-bat his way back up, it'll hurt going down and I can get inside.

Panel 6, Page 1

Belkar: I'm surprised they didn't break a fang trying to turn you in the first place.
Belkar: Must've been like biting a rock, only dumber.

Panel 7, Page 1

Belkar tosses a snowball at the vampire.
Belkar: See, your first mistake was getting into a fight with a halfling in the snow.
Belkar: We literally have bonuses for this!

Panel 8, Page 1

The snowball hits the vampire in the face with a "SPLAT!".
Goliath: GRRRR!!

Panel 9, Page 1

Belkar (thinking): OK, that did the trick. One more round and I can get back to exposing "Durkon" for what it really is.
Belkar (thinking): I think I'm definitely going to go for the flip.

Panel 10, Page 1

Belkar (thinking): Here it comes...
Belkar (thinking): Almost...

Panel 11, Page 1

Belkar (thinking): NOW!!

Panel 1, Page 2

Roy leaps out from the temple, bisecting the vampire with his sword in an arc of green flame, "WSHHCNCT!"

Panel 2, Page 2

Roy: You were absolutely right about Durkon and I was wrong.
Roy: Now he's trying to destroy the world and we need to stop him.

Panel 3, Page 2

Belkar: I was—But—
Roy: Hurry up, let's go!!

Panel 4, Page 2

Belkar: What the hell is the point of facts if I don't get to gloat about knowing them first?!?

Panel 5, Page 2

The vampire's torso crawls towards Belkar, preparing to energy drain...
Belkar: And you couldn't even let me beat one measly vampire before you—

Panel 6, Page 2

Vaarsuvius, Blackwing and Little Whiskers fly over Belkar, and V blasts the vampire, killing it before it manages to touch Belkar.
Blackwing: Heads up!
Blackwing: Coming through!

Panel 7, Page 2

Beat panel. The vampire mist floats away.

Panel 8, Page 2

Belkar: I'll just go get my daggers.
