Roy: Xykon can fly, Elan.
Elan: So it'll be easy to get him up here! Good thinking, Roy!

D&D Context Edit

  • A Bull Rush attack, as executed by Roy in page 2 panel 12, is a special attack in which the character attempts to charge a creature with the intent of knocking them backwards. It is resolved with a contest of strength checks between the two characters. In this case there would likely be a modifier in Roy's favor due to the movement of the Mechane knocking the giant off balance.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the final appearance of the Frost Giantess with Axe. She first appeared in #1059, and ran in thirteen strips.
