D&D Context[edit | edit source]
- Typically small humanoids and monsters like halflings and kobolds are around three feet tall.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This is the final appearance of Yikyik in life, though his skull will appear in several more strips. He first appears in #43.
- This is the first instance of Belkar using the head of a kobold he killed for something. It later becomes a recurring gag. He turns Yokyok's head in to a tortilla chip bowl in #358, attempts to turn the Oracle's head into a litter box in #568, and actually does this to Yukyuk (who is still living) in #835.
