Vaarsuvius disrupts Gannji's escape long enough for Haley to get herself caught as well.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Gannji: Now let's get out of here.
Gannji reads the scroll.
Gannji: Tele—

Panel 2

Gannji's spell fails, "fizzle!"
Gannji: Gaaah!!

Panel 6

Haley throws her weapon past Gannji, "fwwut!"
Gannji: Whoa!

Panel 8

Gannji: Nice try, elf, but your human friend missed me!
Gannji: You did cost me a Teleport scroll, though. Do you have any idea how expensive those things are?

Panel 9

Enor stands with his foot on Haley.
Enor: Do they cost more than 5000 gp?
Gannji: Ha! No, no they don't. A net gain for us then, Enor, and you've certainly earned your yummies tonight!
Gannji: Grab her while I get another scroll out.

Gannji: Teleport!

Panel 12

The group teleports off-panel, "POP!"
Crystal's knife pins the wanted poster to the ground.

D&D Context Edit

  • Power Word Stun is an 8th level wizard spell. It causes the subject to become stunned for, in Gannji's case, likely 2d4 rounds.
  • Teleport is a 5th level spell which allows instantaneous transportation within the same plane, with some possibility of landing in the wrong place. As Gannji is not a spellcaster, he needs a scroll enchanted with the spell. A Teleport scroll has a base price of 1125 gp.

Trivia Edit

  • The title refers to Haley's toss of Cyrstal's knife which Gannji though was meant to hit him.
  • In panel three, Gannji sees pteranodons circling his head, a reptilian form of the cartoon trope of circling birdies as a representation of seeing phosphenes due to mechanical stimulation. Since Gannji is a Lizardfolk it's not clear that he's any more closely related to dinosaurs than to birds, which as Blacking points out in #921, share a clade with dinosaurs.
