Xykon gets some important information, and the tide of the battle turns.
- Panel 1
Xykon: So, let me get this straight. Your father spent his entire life looking for me over a largely inconsequential killing?
Xykon: Magic Missile.
Roy: Yes! You killed his master, and he swore an oath to destroy you!
- Panel 2
Xykon: And he was too much of a loser himself to get the job done before croaking, so now you, Loser Jr., have taken up the task?
Xykon: Magic Missile.
Roy: We'll see who the loser is when I'm wearing your teeth as a necklace
- Panel 3
Xykon: Y'know, I've destroyed entire towns, and the most I got from the surviving families were a few snarky comments. You, sir, have a serious problem with overreaction.
Xykon: Also, Magic Missile.
- Panel 4
Roy: Maybe, but there's only one more goblin between you and me, so lets have it out, one on one!
Xykon: Well, a duel seems hardly worth my effort...
Zit Boy (off-panel): Master Xykon!
- Panel 5
Zit Boy: Master Xykon, Up here! I bring dire warnings!
- Panel 6
Xykon: Who the hell is that?
Redcloak: The goblin child you bribed to try to capture one of the adventurers, sir.
Xykon: Oh, right. Well, fat chance he'll get his college recommendation from me now.
Xykon: Get your green ass down here if you've got something to say, kid!
- Panel 7
Zit Boy lands on the floor hard. "eeeeeeeeeSPLAT!"
- Panel 8
Zit Boy: Master... the human's sword... I overheard them... planning.
Zit Boy: Enchanted... one hit will utterly destroy you!
- Panel 9
Xykon: Really? Hmmm. Nice trick.
Zit Boy: Thank you master...
Xykon: Good work, kid. If you survive the massive injuries you suffered in the fall, I might have a job for you.
Redcloak: I could just cast a healing spell on him, sir.
Xykon: Let's not go crazy, here.
- Panel 10
Xykon: So, I see my last guard is dead, Mr. Redblade—
Roy: Greenhilt! GREEN! HILT!
Xykon: —whatever. You want a duel, you've got it.
- Panel 11
Xykon: You ready?
Roy: I was born ready.
Xykon: Great. Me first.
- Panel 12
Xykon casts a spell on Greenhilt. It sunders with a "shatter!"
