Belkar and Durkon prepare to fight some goblins, but Durkon has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Goblin: Die, shorty!
Durkon: Odin's good eye! This be yer fault, Belkar!
Belkar: Hey, I didn't tell the elf to fail his Will save against ghast paralyzation. He did that on his own, with no consideration for how it would affect me.

Panel 2

Durkon: Ye abandon'd yer post in battle! If we wer in tha dwarven army, ye'd be hang'd fer that crime!
Belkar: I suppose I'll put that on my list of reasons I'm glad I'm not a dwarf, right after "unfashionable facial hair" and right before "miscellaneous odor offenses".

Panel 3

Belkar grins.
Belkar: But don't worry. There is going to be some serious stabbing going on in the next few moments.

Durkon: We dinnae have time for that. I was gonna save this for Xykon, but I think it be time to call out the big guns.
Belkar: We have big guns?

D&D Context Edit

  • This is the first time Durkon is seen casting Thor's Might, a fictional game feature. The spell is most likely the same as (or a variation of) Righteous Might.
  • Characters must make a Saving Throw against effects to prevent them. Ghast's paralyzation is usually a Fortitude Saving Throw, not a Will Saving Throw though.

Trivia Edit

  • The title is a reference to Manitou Raven, a comicbook character who would shout "Inukchuk!" to grow to enormous size.
