More unforseen events, stemming from the spell's effects.
- The Order of the Stick
Transcribers note: all characters are invisible. When it is possible to guess which character is talking, it is noted. Otherwise it is noted "Person #1", etc.
- Panel 1
Roy: OK, gang, now that we're all invisible, we can sneak by any monsters that we come across.
- Panel 2
Haley: What about Durkon's armor? Won't it still clank all over the place?
Durkon: I took me armor off, lass. I be carryin' it now, it clanks much less that way.
Roy: OK, so, if you're done with questions, let's all head off now.
- Panel 3
Person #1: Which way?
Roy: That way.
- Panel 4
Person #1: Wait, WHICH way?
Roy: THAT way, try to pay attention. Now let's go.
- Panel 5
There's a "THUNK!!" as everyone walks into each other.
Person #1: OW!
Person #2: EEK!
Person #3: D'OH!
- Panel 6
Roy: What did you do that for?
Person #1: You said we were going this way.
Roy: Not this way. THAT way.
Person #1: Ummm...
- Panel 7
Haley: Wait, I think I've got it. Roy, do you want us to go forward, or backwards.
Roy: Forward, Haley.
Haley: Right, let's go then.
- Panel 8
Person #1: GAH!
Person #2: OUCH!
Person #3: Goddamn it!
- Panel 9
Roy: I said go forward!
Belkar: I did go forward, dumbass! But your lumbering corpse-to-be was in my path!
Roy: Then you were facing the wrong way!
Belkar: Oh yeah? And how the hell was I supposed to know that?
- Panel 10
Vaarsuvius: Bah! I cannot tolerate this lunacy any longer. My spell is not of infinite duration. Sir Greenhilt, is THIS the direction you would like us to proceed?
A giant red arrow appears in the air.
Roy: Yes, thank you, Vaarsuvius.
- Panel 11
Elan: Why didn't you just say so in the first place?
Haley: Yeah, seriously.
Belkar: Good job, loser.
- Panel 12
Roy: You're lucky attacking ends the spell, or I would smack the crap out of all of you.
Belkar: Bite my 50% miss chance.
D&D Context Edit
- Invisibility grants a number of combat benefits to the invisible person, including a 50% chance for attacks and touch attacks to miss.
- For most of the transcript above, it's unclear who is saying what, so names are ommited where unclear.
- In panel 5, one of the characters utters Homer Simpson's signature catchphrase, "D'oh!".
