Vaarsuvius: Also, I require your assistance.

Panel 2

Cutaway to the deck of the Mechane.
Vaarsuvius (inset): Though the former Master Thundershield endeavors to control the weather, the effort will require a further six minutes of spellcasting, followed by a ten minute period of gradual meteorological transition.
Roy: You’re the one who said if he couldn’t do it, it’d prove you right.
Belkar: Yeah, but you never listen to me! So don’t listen to me now! I mean then! Damn it!!

Blackwing: Which is?
Vaarsuvius: Casting Protection from Electricity on you and then polymorphing you into a gargantuan roc.
