Olan's thoughts for this strip:
Faustus learns a lesson the hard way - just because you *can* stab something doesn't always mean that you should. Sometimes, it is better to run away tactically retreat.
As I frequently do, I will take this opportunity to gush about the art in this comic. I thought that the artist did a wonderful job of capturing the effect as Faustus was hit by the freezing touch. The cold radiating out over the furnace was a nice touch, as well.

Steve (narrator): "Summoning his courage, Faustus drives his blade deep into the monster's chest."
Ray: "Cool! Natural twenty!"
Steve (narrator): â€œThe creature treats the wound as if it were a minor irritation, striking the knight with such force that he crashes into a nearby wall.â€
Ray: â€œWait! Not cool!â€
Steve (narrator): â€œAs Faustus tries to gain his feet, the creature grabs him by the shoulder. A terrible cold radiates through the knightâ€™s body, causing his limbs to go completely numb.â€
Rich: â€œWhoa! Chill out, Ray!â€
Off camera: â€œ*groan*â€
Off camera: â€œBoo!â€
Steve: â€œLucky us. Rich is in rare form tonight.â€
Ray: â€œKeep it up, and heâ€™ll be in bruised form!â€
Steve (narrator): â€œWith Faustus incapacitated, the monster turns to the furnace. It rests its hands against the outside, causing a coating of frost to form. Soon, the fire itself dies.â€
Steve (narrator): â€œIts mission accomplished, the creature turns and leaves the furnace room, walking past Faustusâ€™ stiff form as if the knight did not exist.â€
