Order of the Stick


#5882

I’m dying to know how Durkon’s memory is going to turn this battle around.


#5883

Windfall


#5884

Oh man, this is not going well. I hope Durkon gets whatever he’s got cooking served up soon.


#5885

Raising a Family


#5886

It is always darkest before the dawn, right?

RIGHT? ANYONE?


#5887

Somebody she paid to have raised from the dead means something to the Vampire Cleric. Means a lot is my guess.


#5888

I’m also wondering of we are about to see the culmination of some prophecies from long ago.


#5889

When the goat turns red strike true.


#5890

My first thought is that he’s just shocked about the generosity. But maybe it makes a difference exactly who was raised?

Yeah I think he has to do it. I notice that on the last frame Durkon and the more powerful minion are lined up.


#5891

Reasons Why


#5892

Well there goes my theory.

I’m wondering what happened to Durkon’s mom? Did we see that? Did she end up going to Hel because she didn’t die in battle?


#5893

She’s still alive for all we know, according to the wiki.

Also, there’s this poignant part there:

Durkon’s desire to be able to cast a Regenerate spell on his mother to restore her arm was the primary motivation for him to join the clergy of Thor. He has been able to cast that spell for years, but was unable to help his mother due to his exile from the Dwarven Lands.

Better Days


#5895

Well look at that, kinda figured it had to come to it in the end.


#5896

(caution: “The Crow” spoilers!)


#5897

Wow, I totally didn’t understand where he was going with that. Nice. I also like the parallels with Belkar.


#5898

Very nice indeed.


#5899

Your Worst: The companion comic that I had forgotten. Helps make more sense of what happened today.

Edit: So I guess I took the meaning of the vampire’s previous puzzlement as he didn’t understand people. What Durkon took from it was that he didn’t understand Durkon.

A Heartfelt Moment


#5901

Oh man.

I expected Durkon to die, I didn’t expect him to disintegrate. I think you can still get them back, right? It just takes like serious diamonds and a high-level cleric still?
