D&D Context Edit
- Cure Serious Wounds is a 3rd level spell, which heals 3d8 points of damage +1 point per caster level (maximum +15). Minrah must be at least a level 5 cleric to use this.
- Improved Sunder is a fighter bonus feat which allows a character to perform a Sunder attack (attack to break a weapon) without provoking an attack of opportunity and additionally gives a +4 bonus on the attack roll. Roy previously demonstrated this feat in #795.
- The title refers to the Order of the Stick convention of portraying characters under the influence of charm or domination effects with swirly eyes.
- This is the final appearance of the Vampire Dwarf with Brown Beard, who first appeared in #1101. And he's the last of the six surviving vampires from #1105. He appeared in thirteen strips.
