  1. He will be rejoining them after they leave the dungeon? That is mighty optimistic of them, assuming that they’ll leave alive.

  2. Or Martin is granted to play an antagonist…
    But if he kills them, he is doomed himself to guard. Stupid villains!
    Oh, and: poor Etrusca. Somehow a Monster ILF…

          • It’s not, and they could, but it costs 5,000 gold a pop, and a lot of people die in a D&D game. I don’t think you’d want to try and bring them all back. Flowers are much cheaper.

            • I’ve yet to play with a group who didn’t make a habit of resurrecting every npc whom treated them well for so much as minute if they had the option. Ultimately this culminated in a two year long game ending where the big bad was actually that one npc friendly that kept getting assassinated “by their enemies”, who also gained power each time he was brought back from the dead. Watching everyone freak out was priceless.

  3. Keraptis is a metal-head! Awesome. (see his hand gesture in panel 4) With that beard I can only assume he’s a big Rob Zombie fan. 😛

  4. Awww, man! I liked Etrusca! For one thing, she was much smarter than the PCs.

    Hmm, so that’s Erias’ “old friend”. I’m curious whether a certain something is still scheduled to happen… I’m almost sure it is, but this -is- H.O.L.E., after all.

  5. Gotta love Keraptis’ wizard hat. Sorcerer’s Apprentice, right? (the one in Fantasia that is…)
