D&D Context Edit

  • Laurin continues to use her Wormhole power from AD&D 2nd Edition. The exact rules to translate it for 3.5 edition (which governs Order of the Stick) are not clear.
  • Hold Monster is a 5th level spell which cause any creature to be frozen in place.
  • Greater Dispel Magic is a 6th level spell that can cancel other magical effects, such as V's Hold Monster spell.
  • Haley fires five arrows in one round in panel 5. Note that her Boots of Speed are glowing lime green, indicating that she is Hasted (see strip #3, etc.), so she gets her normal three attacks, plus one attack for being hasted. The fifth attack must therefore be due to her Rapid Shot feat.
  • Which psion power Laurin is using to attack Haley in panel 7 is unclear, but one possibility would be the 1st level power Mind Thrust. It can be scaled up to do more damage by using more power points.
  • Likewise, Miron's defensive spell is unspecified, but the most likely candidates are Shield or Mage Armor.
  • This is the first strip that shows Miron is a spellcaster.
