Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Miko is standing in the center of the ogres.
Miko: You are the ogre chieftain, then? Are your ogres fully prepared to fight?
Ogre: yes. we are ready to fight.

Panel 2

Beat. The ogre chieftain smiles evilly.

Panel 3


Panel 4

Ogre: I said, we are ready to—

Panel 5

Miko slices the ogre chieftain into several wedge-shaped pieces, "slash! slash! slash! slash! slash!"
Miko: I heard you the first time.

Panel 6

Miko: Durkon! Elf! Scorch the area, centered on me!

Panel 7

Vaarsuvius: I do not respond to being addressed as, "Elf", nor do I take orders from those intellectually inferior to myself.
Durkon: Ah, stop bein' a stick in tha mud, tha lass has got a good plan goin', just go along wit it.

Panel 8

Vaarsuvius: Fine.
Vaarsuvius: Fireball.
Durkon: Thor's Lightning!
Miko Evades by jumping out of the way as Durkon and Vaarsuvius blast the ogres.

Panel 9

Roy: Wait, so your whole speech about honor was just a bluff?!?
Miko: Not at all. I meant every word. It was merely ALSO a convenient way of gathering the entire tribe into an area small enough to Fireball.

Panel 10

Miko: You didn't actually think I was stupid enough to allow the enemy to completely surround me without a valid strategic plan in mind?
Roy: Um... no, no, of course not...
Miko: Good. Let's mop up the survivors.

Panel 11

Roy: So, I've met someone who is everything I thought I wanted, and I find that I really just want to kick her in the head.
Durkon: Love is an Epic-level challenge.

D&D Context Edit

  • Miko was able to avoid the spells because of her Monk Evasion class feature and high saving throws from being a Paladin.
  • "Epic-level" is anything beyond 20th. The standard Player's Handbook lacks rules for these levels.
  • Thor's Lightning is a Cleric spell that is a fictional game feature.
  • Fireball is a 3rd-level Wizard spell that explodes and deals damage in a radius.
