I get Belkar now. I completely forgot about the Protection from Evil charm. I think the pain from the charm is what woke him up. Unless pain can't wake you up from being knocked out? I don't know the rules for that.

Rules-wise, there's nothing to that effect. But it'd be a decent houserule, and it's really great as a story-beat which diverges from the rules, as even a story like OOTS or Goblins inevitably must.

So does this count as the death the Kobold Oracle talked about for Belkar?

He certainly hasn't died yet. He might be about to.

He's been doing really well with the not dying. I'm starting to think he might survive until the Xykon battle.

Yeah, I had a brain fart. I commented before I read the rest of the comments, and thought it was a "everybody died" victory for Durkula, instead of leaving some alive.

Belkar seems to have a charm which activates when nearly dead....
I think he's raging from the Barbarian level he took way back, like when MM pulled off the jump-and-throw manoeuvre in the Maze of Many tower room. That's why he's so angry and has an aura.

No, this particular aura definitely matches the strip where he first acquired the Protection from Evil charm (somewhere around strip 1000, in the gnome town). I don't believe his barbarian rages have shown any kind of visible effect like Thog's; he just looks angrier than usual, so it's pretty hard to tell whether he has +4 STR or not.

Okay, still with this group, fine. I can't wait to find out what's happening elsewhere (several elsewheres, actually), but I guess I have to.
