Comic #1513

1 Alvissa: Confusion spell? That's the first time I've ever seen you cast a non-fire-based spell, Kyros.
2 Kyros: Balrogs are creatures of flame. Any spell cast against them is therefore effectively fire magic.
3 Alvissa: Hmmm. Well, there was still something unusual about that spell...
4 Mordekai: Yes, it worked! Now, speaking of Balrogs, can we start running?!

I love the way they stand around arguing and dicussing the weather and whatever when a huge monster is standing right there and threatening to attack them. Of course all roleplayers will be familiar with this syndrome.

2017-01-15 Rerun commentary: This does raise some odd questions about how magic works in this world. Does a mage who only knows fire magic suddenly have the ability to heal fire creatures, despite not knowing anything at all about healing magic in general?

I guess for Kyros the answer is "yes".

Well, not merely "yes", but more like: "Yes, why are questioning my authority on things to do with fire magic? Do you want a fireball in the face?"
