The Plan in Action

posted by Jordan on 2008/4/23 (Comics)

There's a lot of spells in D&D that... just don't do anything useful. Hold Portal is widely considered as one such spell. And if there's anything I like doing, it's putting useless things to... use. I mean, given the right circumstance, a lot of seemingly useless spells can really come in handy.

Except for that Secret Chest spell. That one still doesn't make any sense to me.

I suspect I'm missing a joke, because neither of those spells are useless. They aren't combat spells (which is maybe the joke?), except... Yeah, slowing down pursuers totally is a combat use. And Secret Chest? Secure storage is something you don't need until you do. Whether to foil enemies, or just your own light-fingered rogue, having somewhere truly safe to store things (that effectively follows you around, no less) can be very valuable.

hold portal lock magical portal , no door

and since the caster is a sorcerer (thus limited known spell) it is quite an strange choice

You'd expect one of them to say "Run, kiddies, run!" Ha Ha, sometimes I get it right, sometimes not.

I don't think that she has a black speech bubble because she's evil, I think it's because she's undead. But that doesn't answer the question.

I just think that Zara thought that if he made that many black speech bubbles then the speech might become a bit confusing to read.

Because ghosts aren't required to be evil and Aldran's not undead?

...why is the vampire the only undead with a black speech bubble?

As far as I'm concerned, the only reason Secret Chest exists is to make Bags of Holding.
