- Panel 1
Haley fires 2 arrows at Sabine. "twang! twang!"
Haley: I *knew* you were evil the whole time! Look at you!
Sabine: Of course! The archfiends sent me to serve as Nale's concubine and advisor. That kid's got serious potential, you know.
- Panel 2
2 arrows hit Sabine with another incoming, with no apparent affect. "thunk! thunk!"
- Panel 3
Sabine: Eeeeevil potential!
Sabine plucks the arrows out of herself. "pluck!"
- Panel 4
Haley (thinking): Eeek! She's got damage reduction! My regular arrows can't hurt her at all!!
- Panel 5
Haley holds a blue-flighted arrow and a red-flighted arrow.
Haley (thinking): OK, think, Haley. If she's a demon, she's vulnerable to cold iron. BUT if she's a devil, she's vulnerable to silver.
- Panel 6
Haley (thinking): But which is it?? Which one??
- Panel 7
Sabine: I think I'm gonna drain a level for each time you've called me a skank.
Sabine: Ah, who am I kidding, I'm gonna drain them all anyway.
Sabine: Here I come!
- Panel 8
Haley: I'm so glad I took Manyshot.
- Panel 9
Haley: Eat obscure alchemical metal, fiend-skank!
Haley shoots Sabine with both arrows at once, "TWANG!", "thunk!"
- Panel 10
Sabine: That hurt!! Screw this, I'll take my chances with the monsters.
- Panel 11
Sabine flies into the distance.
Sabine: But trust me, you haven't seen the last of me, bitch!
- Panel 12
Haley: Darn it! She got away! I can't believe I let her get away!
- Panel 13
Haley stands there, looking annoyed.
- Panel 14
Haley: And I still don't know which arrow hurt her!
D&D Context Edit
- Demons and devils have damage reduction that can be bypassed by using silver or cold iron, however there are a lot of demons and devils in the game so its often tough to keep track of which particular evil being is a demon and which is a devil. Succubi, like Sabine are demons, therefore their damage reduction is bypassed by cold iron.
- Manyshot is a Feat that allows a character to shoot more than one arrow at the time (with every additional arrow substantially lowering the chance to hit).
- Heavy Metals are a group of elements in the periodic table that exhibit metallic properties.
