chapter 56 : page 1

The city is not as they remember. No one is in sight, there are no lights and more worrisome of all; the street is blocked with a big a warning.
Which mean Kiel won't listen and go past it because danger is exciting and somehow she'll survive whatever big troubles will follow. *heehee*

Oof, I'm betting they're about to find a quarantine zone, what with Snads having the braineater flower on the cover.

There might be a lot of demons on the other side too.

Whatever the case, Chel, one of the wonders of the Underworld, is now a tarnished beauty.

Sorry, butI have to give a -1 there for the use of the term "Supervillain".
For how advanced Drow can be I didn't think they have any equivalent of DC or Marvel.

Um, part of Kiel's whole shtick is that she is heavily influenced by extraplanar ideas and words. This is part of spending way too much time exploring alien intelligences.

Here's another example, except gaming related, instead of comics:

Well, less than a dozen people subsisting on the stores meant for hundreds to last for months up to a year, I'd say that they could weather out quite a bit of turmoil.

I dunno...blocking a street with rubble, marking it with big gaudy red warning signs, that doesn't sound like Modus Operandi of the Nidraa'chal (and rubble woudn't stop a demon anyway). Seems more Sarghress than anything else... B)

Hey, that dialogue with Khaless, where she says, "I come from beyond the Veil, where one of your kind devoured the entire world and remade it in her image. What is so different, other than that our origins are reversed". Ignore the part where she's comparing herself to the goddess Sharess (as she was EATEN BY LAELE, doesn't that truly make Khaless the Demon God that Discordia was a shard of, and Laele the Demon God that Ni'bai and her team summoned? :V ). Instead, the "one of your kind" referring to Kiel...perhaps she merely means she's a Drow, but it's still pretty neat that Kiel is being compared to Sharess 8)

Yes, but the question remains: since Kern is the DM as well as Kiel's player, does that make her an NPC? Or is Kern playing Kiel as a PC? Because there's a difference, especially in motivation ;)

Nah. Sarghress stone fortifications would be a smooth wall (if time permitted) or a single uplifted rock wall (in haste) due to ubiquitous and skilled use of stone foci.

These are boulders. That suggests either manual labor or inexpertly collapsing a nearby building. That suggests ignorant commoners or even goblinoids.

Honestly, the writing reminded me of this:

Or the quarantine warnings in Char...
