Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Roy and Haley examine the butt cheeks on the statue of Girard Draketooth.
Haley: I just want it on the record that I think you're taking this too literally.
Roy: Duly noted. Keep looking.

Panel 2

Belkar: Hey, anyone seen Vaarsuvius? Mr. Scruffy needs the kobold to open his mouth for a minute.
Roy: Why?
Belkar: ...No reason. Don't worry about it. I'm sure the elf will turn up.

Panel 3

Durkon: Lad, ifn' yer gonna ask tha corpse anymore questions, ye better hurry 'fore tha spell runs out.
Roy: Good point.

Panel 4

Roy: Well, if you won't give us a straight answer about the Gate...
Roy: Where is Girard Draketooth.
Draketooth Comedian: Beneath...
Draketooth Comedian: ...his own...
Draketooth Comedian: ...feet.

Panel 5

Roy: Another damn riddle. What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Haley: Hey, I think I found a secret—
Something in the statues goes, "click!"

Panel 6

The base of the statue begins to open with a "wrrrrrrrrshtcht!" causing Haley to fall off.
Haley: Whoa!!

Panel 7

The base of the statue is a sarcophagus containing the skeletal remains of Girard Draketooth. The party looks inside.
Haley: Huh, Girard Draketooth, I presume.
Belkar: At least one of them had the courtesy to put themselves into a crypt after they all died.
Roy: Damn it. I was holding out hope that he had escaped the slaughter up there—but he was dead before it started.
Durkon: Aye, lad. E's been dead fer twenty years or more.

Panel 8

Haley: Should we try to raise him?
Roy: Eventually, yeah. But if anyone was going to hold to your theory about resisting it, it would be him.
Roy: And look at his teeth—he may well have died of old age.

Panel 9

Haley: I guess we have to assume at this point that Girard's Gate is functionally undefended.
Roy: Girard may have been a spiteful curmudgeon, but he was still doing the world a great service. We're all a little less safe now that he and his heirs have passed.

Panel 10


Panel 11

Haley: You're going to make me search that skeleton's dry crumbly assbone, aren't you?
Roy: Yep.

D&D Context Edit

  • Characters who have died of old age, such as Girard Draketooth may have, cannot be resurrected by clerical magic.

Trivia Edit

  • Mr. Scruffy has been using Yukyuk's mouth for a litter box since #835.
  • The title is a pun on the phrase "no stone unturned."
  • This is the final appearance of the Draketooth Comedian, pioneer of ass comedy. He first appeared in #841.
