With The Linear Guild in Celia's custody, the way seems open for the Order to confront Xykon. And yet something seems missing...

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Roy: So, do you now go back to guarding stuff, Miss....uh...
Celia: My name is Celia. And no, no point in that now. I screwed this job up good. I think I'm just going to bail.

Panel 2

Celia: Besides, my brush with stonedom has gotten me thinking about priorities. I'm too focused on my career. I'm going to go home, relax, spend some time with my family, catch up with old friends, and fool around with my boyfriend.

Panel 3

Roy: I suppose with your immunity, you'll have no problem getting past all those monsters.
Celia: Actually, I'm kinda in a hurry, so I'm summoning the employees exit.
Celia summons a door labelled "Authorized Personnel Only".

Panel 4

Roy: Whoa! And this goes straight to the surface?
Celia: Down too, only two more levels. Dorukan wanted the bottom of the dungeon off-limits.
Roy: Two levels means bypassing the pit of monsters AND a whole lot of goblins. Do you mind?
Celia: I'm not supposed to let anyone in here, but eh, what do I care? I don't work here anymore.

Panel 5

Haley: What about these two? We can't just drag them around behind us from now on.
Belkar: I have an idea. It starts with "s" and ends with "litting their throats."
Elan: No! No killing.
Belkar: Technically, you mean no MORE killing.

Panel 6

Vaarsuvius: I believe I have a compromise. Miss Celia is retreating to the town. She can lead these miscreants to the constables there for incarceration.
Elan: Yeah, OK.
Celia: Heck yeah. They totally deserve to get locked up.

Panel 7

Haley (whispering): Pssst! Are we sure we can trust her?
Roy (whispering): I think so. They killed her co-workers. I don't think she will let them go free.

Panel 8

Celia leads Nale and Thog up the stairs by a rope. The Order head down some stairs.
Roy: Well, Celia, thank you for your help.
Celia: Thank YOU. I'd still be a lawn ornament if it weren't for you guys.

Panel 9

Roy: This is great! We just bypassed two levels and are that much closer to Xykon!
Haley: And treasure!
Elan: I suppose...

Panel 10

Elan: But I'm still sad about Nale, and what might happen to him.
Elan: Oh, and I've got this nagging feeling we're all forgetting something.

Panel 11

Durkon: Hullo?
Durkon: Lads?

D&D Context Edit

  • Summon Employee Exit is not a standard D&D spell, just a joke.
