Yes it would seem it should be the opposite. I suppose he's been living with man-men so long he just makes the table him an shaped by and gives himself the feetsy danglies by default. Which is funny because if redgobb shrinks the chair to fit then he ends up macdonaldsing his legs so they're both sitting uncomfortable: durkon dangling off his and cloaky with his knees up under his chin

Also gods really are the worst partners. Here I am trying to communicate all they give you in return is a bunch of vague "signs" and coincidences. So passive aggressive.

Wait til they kill your kids for a bet and then do communicate with you... by saying "shut up, that's why."

Well, Contact Other Plane is an arcane spell, so Redcloak cannot cast it. Commune might work, but it's only a one-word response per question, so that's hardly meaningful communication. Plus, most every other 5th-level Cleric spell is more useful.

Why didn't Durkon just mention he was a bit dead at the time he was talking to Thor?

I think deities aren't, strictly speaking, supposed to go about reviving dead followers out of hand, right?

Wasn't revived by Thor, but by the priests.  I was saying with the recent panel of 'my god never talked to me' from Redcloak, why Durkon didn't just mention 'I only spoke to Thor because I was dead at the time'.

Truly Resurrected by a cleric of Loki, to be precise.

Just normal Resurrection, not True Resurrection. The one character in the entire setting is known to be capable of casting True Resurrection is the High Priest of Odin - and maybe not even the current High Priest of Odin who's currently stuck at the Godsmoot. A True Resurrection would have been over-unkill anyway.
