Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Roy: Elan, this is ridiculous. You have to put your clothes back on.
Elan: No way! I’ve never felt so free!

Panel 2

Elan: And I am so much more agile without all those bulky clothes!
Roy: No, you’re not.
Roy: Regular clothing doesn’t even HAVE a penalty.

Panel 3

Roy: Hell, it doesn’t even count towards encumbrance.
Elan: Are you sure? How do you know unless you try it?

Panel 4

Roy: Well, since that’s not going to happen, I guess I’ll have to live in eternal uncertainty. Now get dressed.
Elan: Nuh-uh! I hide better naked, so naked I shall remain!

Panel 5

Roy: Ok, uh…hey! What if I get Durkon to cast Cat’s Grace on you? Then you could stay agile, but clothed.
Durkon: What??
Elan: Hmm, well, I suppose that would be OK…

Panel 6

Elan: But wouldn’t it be better to cast Cat’s Grace and then stay naked?
Roy and Durkon: NO!

Panel 7

Durkon: It’s, ah…in the spell description.
Roy: Doesn’t stack.
Roy: Honest.

Panel 8

Elan: Oh, well, okay then. I guess that will work.
Roy: Quick, cast it before he changes his mind.

Panel 9

Roy: What are you waiting for?
Durkon: …
Durkon: It’s a touch spell.

D&D Context Edit

  • A Touch spell must be given to the target through a direct touch.
  • Encumbrance is the amount of weight a character can carry before being slowed down or receiving other penalties. Normal clothes are light enough that they don't count against encumbrance.
  • Cat's Grace is a spell which increases the target's Dexterity score. One thing Dexterity does is that it affects skills like Hide and Move Silently.
  • Whether bonuses will stack or not is one of the more confusing and arcane parts of the D&D rules.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first mention of the different target types of spells (touch, ranged, area of effect, etc.).
