Durkon rejoins the rest of the party, and Banjo's ascension is put on hold.

Cast Edit

The entire Order of the Stick, plus Banjo.


Panel 1-3

Durkon walks into the lighted area, where the rest of the Order await

Panel 4

Vaarsuvius: This is not an espresso maker. This is, in fact, a damp cardboard box with the word "espresto" written on it. In crayon.
Elan: Banjo works in mysterious ways.
Roy: Durkon! You're alive!

Panel 5

Roy: You're safe. How did you get out alive? What happened?
Durkon: I don't want ta talk aboot it.
Roy: Oooookay.

Panel 6

Roy: Geez, the guy gets a solo adventure and he gets all snippy.
Elan: Don't worry, Roy. If Durkon doesn't feel well, Banjo and I can pick up the slack. He has 3 worshippers now!
Belkar: Yeah, Elan, about that...

Haley: Elan, I'll level with you.

Panel 10

Haley: I only joined your church because I figured if I got on the ground floor of the Next Big Thing, I'd be in a position to embezzle millions later on. So if I could just get the refund you promised...

Panel 11

Roy: Aww, is Elan's freaky little puppet cult breaking up?
Elan: The world just isn't ready for Banjo the Clown, Roy.

Panel 12

Elan: Soon, he will be a forgotten god, slumbering away for centuries until dark priests seek to awaken his unholy power.

Panel 13

Elan: But when he returns, all will hear his call...

Panel 14

Elan: The call...of Banjuhlu!
Roy: Oh, for the love of-

Trivia Edit

  • In Panel 7, Rich types one too many "the"'s during Belkar's talk.
  • This comic's title along with Elan's story and Banjulhu are all direct references to H.P.Lovecraft's novels of Cthulhu.
