And That's Why We Have the FDA

You know, Aldran could make a great professional chef, like Emeril. Of course, when Emeril says "bam," things don't explode.

Ah, the delayed blast fireball. One of my favorite spells. It reminds me of a time the party I was DMing for defeated a vampire and it escaped to a secret underground coffin that could only be accessed by a small, 1 in. hole in the floor. The party decided they wanted extra XP for actually killing the vampire and they dropped a delayed blast fireball down the hole and blew up the vampire's coffin. (consequently, the vampire died)

Whoa, heh, I did NOT see that coming! Bloody brilliant!

to Sirek:

you could cast a regular fireball into someone's mouth, you would jsut need a pretty amazing touch attack:
"If you attempt to send the bead through a narrow passage, such as through an arrow slit, you must %u201Chit%u201D the opening with a ranged touch attack, or else the bead strikes the barrier and detonates prematurely."

I don't see why you could't fire a delayed blast the same way. At a speed of 400 feet in a few seconds, since it does not explode, it would probably force itself down the person's throat if it doesn't puncture through.

“Btw that image verification is hell... 7th atempt”

I know it's a pain, but it's still easier to decipher than other CAPTCHAs I've seen. Plus, it keeps the bots out, thank God.

Great comic, Zarah.

Jack - there is no need to update the cast page.. this druid (or what is left of him) was never named.

Somehow I doubt they'd find enough remnants to actually be able to ress him.
Jack - 2009/2/28
Update cast page
Paeris Kiran - 2009/2/28
Well he probably is... but I seriouslly doubt that Veil lacks ressurection capabilities...

they will want to debrief him.

Btw that image verification is hell... 7th atempt

The druid's dead. Delayed Blast Fireball does 1d6/level, and we know Aldran's level 19 at least.

That makes me wonder about Persisting a few and Shrinking them so they look like seeds, then putting them in someone's dinner.
Elena (aka Lionpawheart) - 2009/2/27
Aww, I wanted to watch...
The Gremlin - 2009/2/27
Aww, the druid lost. Sad
With luck, he'll survive, but he won't look as awesome as he does now. Poor druid. At least he has d8 hit dice. |Happy
Hilarious comic, whether or not teh druids died.
Hremsfeld - 2009/2/27
Mmm...toasty druid bits...|3
Ganurath - 2009/2/26
I really shouldn't...

Looks like Aldran kicked it up a notch!
TotallyFolked - 2009/2/26
Oh god, I remember the last time I tried to use delayed blast fireballs. I sucessfully managed to chuck one down a beefed-up troll's throat but someone else cast a normal fireball into the room (not being able to see me do this) causing the delayed one to explode (house rules strike again).

Two high level fireballs made my very CON-weak sorceror turn into a fine dust and made me quite angry!
But to be fair the comedy aspect of it mad it worth it.
Smiley - 2009/2/26
LOL! That is awesome! I've always wanted to try that! Who knew there were so many imaginative ways to kill people! Happy

Sequinox - 2009/2/26
That's gross...

Sorta funny, but I don't find it as funny as NamopnakiRei did...

Yeah, I guess that's it.

NamopnakiRei - 2009/2/26
Oh gods, that made me laugh so hard I think I woke up my neighbours! Tongue THAT indigestion must have been heavy. I bet he felt like he was about to explode XD. But what made my day was the BLAM(And the way the line below BLAM is drawn)

1000/10 Very happy

I don't think it can do that. SRD: "Evocation [Fire]
Level: Sor/Wiz 7
Duration: 5 rounds or less; see text

This spell functions like fireball, except that it is more powerful and can detonate up to 5 rounds after the spell is cast. The burst of flame deals 1d6 points of fire damage per caster level (maximum 20d6).

The glowing bead created by delayed blast fireball can detonate immediately if you desire, or you can choose to delay the burst for as many as 5 rounds. You select the amount of delay upon completing the spell, and that time cannot change once it has been set unless someone touches the bead (see below). If you choose a delay, the glowing bead sits at its destination until it detonates. A creature can pick up and hurl the bead as a thrown weapon (range increment 10 feet). If a creature handles and moves the bead within 1 round of its detonation, there is a 25% chance that the bead detonates while being handled."

Oh well, great comic. Like Thor taking out all those trees with a sonic boom, to great to ruin with RAW.

That is so awesome. I'll have to remember that for my warmage...
fat sweet potato - 2009/2/26
xDDD i almost forgot about that spell and i never thought of using it that way, brilliant!
ldcnuke - 2009/2/26
I've actually used that before... not with berries though.
Face of Evil - 2009/2/26
Awesome. Very happy
Lyinginbedmon - 2009/2/26
Now THAT'S an enema!
Knight13 - 2009/2/26
I love how Aldran doesn't even bother to watch the fireball go off, since his taunt is complete.
dragongirl13 - 2009/2/26
Ohhhh maaaaaannnn... that's gotta be painful.

Awesome comic, Zarah.
Niley - 2009/2/26
Exachix - 2009/2/26
That is awesome.

Permission to use that in the future.
Ben Harrison - 2009/2/26
Hehehe. The expression on Lana's face (who has presumably just witnessed the spell's effect...) says it all.
Christian - 2009/2/26
Hey nice one Happy That'll give him some digestion problems I guess xHappy
Querzis - 2009/2/26
I know it was sarcasm but Laris asking if he can kill himself is still really weird and disturbing.

Poor druid, we never got to know his name. OF course, the druid should be blaming Lana, not Aldran. Aldran just wanted to flee but she absolutely wanted him to kill that guy.
