Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Vaarsuvius sits, hurt, on the floor.
Elan: So, um, Vaarsuvius, you don't happen to have any of those really nifty spells ready right now? Like, say, "Hold Half-Orc" for example?

Panel 2

Vaarsuvius: Alas, no, I have expended all of my prepared spells for the day. Why do you ask?

Panel 3

Thog appears, wiedling his battleaxe with a grin.
Elan: Um, no reason.

Panel 4

Vaarsuvius: Elan, use your bard magic! Thog must have an abysmal Will saving throw.
Elan: Oh, right. I forgot I could do that!

Panel 5

Elan: Silent Image!
The illusion of a female orc appears in front of Thog.

Panel 6

Vaarsuvius: Good gods, man! Is that the only illusion you can ever devise??
Elan: Yeah, I mean it was that, or a litter of puppies, and I doubt a rampaging barbarian would have stopped for that!

Panel 7

Thog: ewww! thog thinks pretty girls are icky!

Panel 8

Elan: Aww man! It's not working!
Vaarsuvius: Do not give up so easily, Elan. I have an idea.

Panel 9

Vaarsuvius: Move the illusion closer to Thog.
Elan: Ok.
Thog: stay away! thog not want girl cooties!

Panel 10

Thog: thog surrender! just keep pretty girls away from thog!
Haley: Wait, so what am I, chopped liver?
Vaarsuvius: Now is really not the time.
