1176.

Hm. I wonder... what did that fadeout mean? Maybe Hel is running out of godflow? Maybe that's why Loki is actually sad?

She's on an extremely unbalanced divine diet, and she's just had to pump out a lot of power through the clerics she rarely has. Granting spells to a half-dozen or so clerics isn't much for a well-fed god, but for one in the late stages of starvation it might be another story - particularly since the clerics she has haven't done anything to restore her diet to normal. This even goes to show how stupid she's being. Durkon* made enough vampire clerics at the Godsmoot to be beyond the smitey-smite of any but high-level adventurers, and they could quite easily have survived long enough to establish a proper Church of Hel with undead clerics, restoring her diet to normal and gaining her quite a bit of power.



There's some speculation over on GiTP that she's in the same boat as the Dark One - not certain to survive the time between worlds, but completely unaware of this fact.

I don't suppose the other gods could lend some of the 'god food' during the downtime between worlds?

Or maybe theres some sort of hibernation state they can do, but then again, if she could do a hibernation state, the lesser gods that popped up in the billion+ worlds would have survived since they could do the hibernation state as well.

If she were going to be reliant on charity to survive this cycle, then threatening her family is even more of a brainless move.

A bard version of stone to flesh, huh? I donít recall anybody on the GitP forum or here predicting them doing that, it was mostly V doing it somehow or other. Though some did mention moving Durkon somewhere else before de-stoning.

Isn't that a song of freedom or whatever it's called?

Yep, that 12th level ability!

I didn't actually remember they could do this, but my 3.5 group only briefly had a bard PC of that level.
We do share a laugh about Countersong sometimes, heh.

Interesting that Thirden and especially his apprentice Janna can sing it, since it requires being a 12th-level Bard or higher. Normally you wouldn't expect an apprentice to have what is generally considered a fairly high level.

Yeah and it's weird that they're casting (well it's a spell-like ability) together, which isn't a thing.  I suspect this is a homebrew thing about the apprenticeship, particularly as I'm pretty sure an earlier strip called her musical skill into question.  Which is fine since she's currently an apprentice, just odd if she's supposed to be level 12 herself.

Eh, maybe it's just her assisting him. Wouldn't surprise me if they had some homebrew rules for that.

Not sure what assisting that ability would do, per se, but...why not?

That might work for the song they did for Durkon, but a few panels later they're taking turns singing to unwhammy the dominated counselors with Janna singing without any visible assistance from Thirden.
