Durkon enjoys his racial bonuses.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Belkar rides a dead ogre to the ground with a "THUMP!" Belkar: Ahhhhh....there it is.
An ogre is preparing to attack Durkon

Panel 2

Durkon does a backflip and dodges the attack, "swish!"

Panel 3

Belkar: When the hell did you become so nimble??
Durkon: It's tha ogres! I get a +4 dodge bonus when fightin' them. Durkon leaps over another missed attack, "swish!"

Panel 4

Durkon kills the last ogre with his hammer, still in mid-leap
Belkar: Ah. Well, just so you know, that's the last ogre you just killed, so technically...

Panel 5

Durkon falls to the ground, "CRASH!"
Belkar: Heh.

Panel 6

Belkar: Hey, where's the Ice Queen? Off ruining the last tiny shred of fun I'm still allowed to have in this party, I presume?

Panel 7

Roy: Miko's not that bad, Belkar
Belkar: In the same way that an unnecessary Fortitude save isn't that bad, because at least you got to roll a save?

Panel 8

Roy: You just need to see where she's coming from. I think she's led a very sheltered life, and she isn't used to dealing with anyone but other monks or paladins. There must be all sorts of things that she doesn't understand.

Panel 9

Belkar: Such as?
Miko: You appear to be injured. Would you like me to lay hands upon you?

Panel 10


Panel 11

Roy: Nah, you know what? I'll let that pass, too obvious.
Belkar: Aw, come ON! She lobbed it right over the plate, at least take a swing!

D&D Context Edit

  • [ Dwarves] gain a +4 bonus to dodge when fighting ogres and other giant type creatures.
  • A Fortitude save is often made to resist poison or other negative effects.
  • Lay on Hands is a Paladin class feature that allows them to heal allies.

Trivia Edit

  • Belkar's reaction to the ogre's death in the first panel is a callback to his line from a previous comic, #212: "Hey, ogres make a very satisfying thump when they hit the ground".
