Haley comes up with a plan and uses a nice time trick.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Vaarsuvius holds the arrow-riddled Blackwing.
Vaarsuvius: My raven—
Haley: Blackwing.
Vaarsuvius: Blackwing has scouted the bandit camp. Based on the feelings I am receiving through our empathic link, I believe he spotted Elan.
Vaarsuvius: Also, I believe he is asking for morphine.

Panel 2

Durkon casts "heal!" on Blackwing.
Haley: Wait, empathic link? I thought raven familiars could speak Common?
Vaarsuvius: Oh, he CAN speak Common. He just won't. He feels it is demeaning to speak in anything but his native raven tongue.

Panel 3

Blackwing pops out of existence, "pop!", to Durkon's surprise.
Haley: Roy was right about one thing: there ARE too many bandits to fight. Luckily, fighting isn't my specialty.
Haley: We'll try to sneak into the camp and free Elan without alerting the bandits to our presence.

Panel 4

Haley: Durkon, that means you need to stay behind. We can't afford for them to hear you, and we'll need backup in case something goes wrong.
Durkon: Aye, lass. Ye can count on me.

Panel 5

Haley: I think we should definitely wait for nightfall. It will be much easier to sneak in under cover of darkness.
Vaarsuvius: Agreed.

Panel 6

Belkar: Nightfall? It's midmorning! And I know the limits of my attention span. Who knows what I'll be trying to kill if I have to wait around for hours in one place.

Panel 7

Haley: Nah, don't be silly, Belkar. Check this out.

Panel 8

Haley: Does anyone have anything they want to do before nightfall?
Belkar: No.
Durkon: Nope.
Vaarsuvius: Not at all.

Panel 9

Haley: Ahem.
Haley: "Later that evening..."

Panel 10

It is suddenly night.
Belkar: Sweet.

D&D Context Edit

  • Wizards gain an empathic link with their familiars and the two can psychically sense each others thoughts.
  • Common is the basic language of the world.
