So does regenerate work inside the stomach of a hungry monster?
clue: command not found
Ultimately, no. Regen doesn’t negate your need to breathe…
Which brings up the thought of Freya… did she study the Frog Form? Able to breath through her skin?
It doesn’t? Was that a change in 4e? I was pretty sure the ONLY way to kill a troll was with fire or acid. In all other cases the little bits of troll vibrate and pull towards each other until they form a troll again. Of course stomachs generally have acid in them so that might work.
But who would ever want to eat a troll? Eww!
No that was Enkidu while he was still female
Next thing you tell us that trolls are made of mercury…
Not quite. Fire and acid were just things that a troll was specifically vulnerable to. Under 3.5 rules, all creature with regeneration, be it trolls, certain demons, razor boars, and similar, ultimately have the “weak spot” that you can still drown them/suffocate them… if you can call that a weak spot, because it works on most other creatures too (except for constructs, undead and oozes).
In some cases, if the monster is also resistant or immune to elemental damage (fire, acid, etc) and more or less immune to everything else (i.e. poison) due to high FORT saves, and has high Damage Resistance and Spell Resistance – I’m looking at YOU, razor boar! – drowning them is sometimes the only way to get rid of them.
Reminds me of the joke:
“I know how we can tell if he’s a vampire! They die if you shove a stake through their heart!”
“You dummy…a stake through the heart would kill ANYTHING!”
Isn’t that the same way they find witches, only with burning/drowning instead of sharp stakes?
Morty’s stomach sure regenerates, he looks pregnant in the last panel(but who knows how it works with trolls anyway).
Also, called shot to the nuts!
Aaaagh, damn it, Orald.
Now i will wander around the rest of the day seeing “Gamers” in my head.
………….uhm, come to think of it…That’s not really all bad… 🙂
Today’s update makes me very happy. 😀
The group finally works together to beat a mutual enemy!
Enkidu actually uses his spells smartly! (A shield spell he should have used against the manticores, the idiot.)
Enkidu is kicked in the balls! YES!
Critical stab to the heart! Go, Bunker!
Now, about those manticores…
Shield works situationally in 4e. I won’t bore you with the details. Besides, it would probably provoke another rant. 😉
/waves fist in the air, just ’cause.
Nope. Not biting! 🙂
I just noticed Enkidu has a beard shadow. 😯 Wasn’t he clean-shaven when they entered White Smoke Mountain? How long have they been trudging through this dungeon?
lets see. White smoke mountain 151… 3 panels a week. About a year. Id say hes due for some 5 oclock shadow.
I figured it was time. Good catch though!
Quick! Throw the dead elf to the manticores!
There’s still the dead monk too. And whatever’s left of the half-orc’s goolies.
If only he had troll regeneration… 😯
Hmm, didn’t said elf just give the manticore which is left someone elses nice, juicy lungs a little while ago?
It’s not like she needed them anymore anyway.
What no beheading? You have to behead them to gain their power, for there can only be one!
Damn. I don’t think Bunker knew that.
Fleece looks curiously unscathed by that fireball. Is she holding out some sort of fire resistance item? Maybe I missed it- I wasn’t keeping track of all the unsanctioned booty-grabbing. 😛
Well, if she has Evasion and Enkidu missed her Reflex on his attack roll … no damage.
I don’t know how much AD&D has changed over the years, but you can’t really dodge a fireball- it’s 30′ radius. And that’s not given any of the new modifications or whatever. Bout all you can do is save for half, and Fleece isn’t even slightly singed. How can you MISS with a bloody fireball???
Immunity to fire?
I thought about this well after I drew it, but she was damaged by the fireball, I just didn’t think to include it. I might go back and fix this later.
Just color the hair – it looks like a flame, and the eyelashes look singed… 🙄
Ah! So I wasn’t hallucinating and imagining things! When I looked at the comic strip again just now, I thought, “Wait a minute… something is different… what’s that, is that smoke coming from Fleece? Was that already there on Friday? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there on Friday…”
So you did indeed change the panels.
Nonsense. Doubting Kevin’s artistic perfection is a thoughtcrime.
All hail Kevin.
At first I thought Bunker had a flaming sword… sorry, a sword with a burning blade (I blame the lewd artifact weapons in this dungeon crawl putting words into my mouth!), and this was where the smoke came from. But there was no Sizzle sound effect.
“I don’t know how much AD&D has changed over the years, but you can’t really dodge a fireball- it’s 30′ radius.”
See my previous post: Evasion allows you to take no damage on any missed AOE attack that would normally deal half damage if it was against Reflex or AC. So, yes, you can now dodge a fireball. Evasion worked similarly in 3.5 if I recall correctly.
But as Kevin has stated below, that’s not what happened in this case after all.
I always thought that the whole evasion/reflex save thing in D&D was a little insane. All the time taking shamelessly advantage of it of course..
Evasion? Do rogues still have that?
Plus, she does have those little smoking patches on her. Assuming she took half damage, or Enkidu just rolled really crappy damage, (don’t know how that works in 4e; don’t care either) Fleece looks about how I’d expect a slightly toasty rogue to look.
Yeah, I don’t know what those guys are talking about.
Indeed. We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
Enkidu’s problem was he used a normal fireball, not an extra-Large rank 5…Yah, a Fireball-XL5 would have done the job…
Tonya should try that type of fireball spell.
lolz Bunker now has backstab!!
So why didn’t he shout “sneak attack!” before doing so?
He applied the Extra Sneaky feat to the sneak attack so he didn’t have to shout anymore. 🙄
Or alternatively he made a successful saving throw vs Dragonball conventions. 😉
Dragonball? Tsk…just about every Martial arts style anime has called attacks: Kaze no Kizu!
I hope you both realize I’m specifically referring to Order of The Stick, not some…piece of anime of which I’d have no knowledge of anyway.
I *cannot* believe no one has commented on how upset Bunker’s wife is going to be that he has his sword between Fleece’s boobs. #wherehaveallthepervertsgone
Where would you like the sword to be? Through the tummy?
Bunker took her from behind.
(I’m so going to Puritan hell for this, aren’t I.)
There’s a horse-drawn buggy waiting to take you. 😈
