Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Qarr: What the Home Sweet Home is going on in there? That's an awful lot of yelling.
Malack examines the door.
Malack: This trap appears to be airtight. I have no spells suitable to opening it. Do you?

Panel 2

Qarr: I don't think that's really the question that needs to be asked here.
Qarr: I think a more relevant question would be, "Do I or do I not have my own agenda?"
Qarr: To which the answer is: "Bye!"

Panel 3

Qarr disappears wtih a "pop!"
Malack: Hrrrrm. Typical fiend behavior.
Malack: Very well, I shall find my own path around it.

Panel 4

Back inside, Kilkil is still on the ground, paralyzed, while Durkon is fighting Tarquin.
Zz'dtri Shield?
Zz'dtri manages to successfully cast Shield to protect himself from the flying arrows.
Tarquin: You're fairly skilled with weapon and shield, cleric.
Durkon: Thor asks tha his children be ready to smash Evil in the face wit a big hammer, were'er it be found.
Tarquin parries Durkon's hammer with Soul Muncher, "CLANG!"

Panel 5

Tarquin bashes Durkon with the flat of Soul Muncher, "BONK!!"
Tarquin: Sadly, my face is not currently available.
Tarquin: You should consider yourself lucky that you have someone looking out for your safety.

Panel 6

Tarquin: Well, your deity, obviously, but besides him.
Tarquin rushes ahead while Durkon is stunned

Panel 7

Haley: I can't see too much, but I think this is going pretty well. Knock on wood.
Roy: Good. I was worried when I saw the mummies.

Panel 8

Roy: Looks like their mystery cleric was directly controlling them... and we must have shut him (or her) down.
Roy: Excuse me for one moment.

Panel 9

Roy charges the mummies with Greenhilt drawn
Draketooth with Bodice: your safety
Draketooth with Braided Hair: knock on—

Panel 10

Roy slashes with a flaming Greenhilt, bisecting all the mummies.

Panel 11

Roy looks down at the bisected corpses.

Panel 12

Roy speaks towards heaven.
Roy: OK, I know this looks bad, but they can totally fix it when they raise you guys.

D&D References Edit

  • Qarr once more uses Teleport, a 5th level spell-like ability which Imps in this comic have, though not in standard D&D. Qarr's teleport differs from the spell in how much material he can transport with him.
  • Shield is a 1st level spell which creates an invisible shield in front of the caster, providing +4 to Armor Class as well as negating Magic Missile spells cast at it.
  • Roy uses his Great Cleave feat to attack all of the mummies in a single blow, as he did before in #102, Lowbrow is the Best Brow

Trivia Edit

  • There are a number of pop culture reference Qarr could be making with his line in the first panel, but it is perhaps a reference to Mötley Crüe's 1985 power ballad Home Sweet Home.
  • This is the final appearance for four of the five Draketooth mummies: Braided Hair, Bodice, Goatee, and Purple Shirt. All of them first appeared in #841.
