Utterly Dwarfed

Utterly Dwarfed by Rich Burlew

The Order of the Stick book 6. Serious spoilers for earlier works ahead, as this one makes little sense without them.

Starting with its opening with Durkon as a vampire, which means that a vampire spirit is running his body and holding him prisoner in his own head.

This leads to a lot of incidents of his memories. Meanwhile the quest to save the world goes on with some sidequests and subplots. Belkar's awareness that Durkon is not really Durkon. A thread for Halley's past gets tied off and shows her growth. A fight with giants that goes reasonably smoothly except for drama on the ship. The discovery that the gods are discussing what to do -- it really has reached such a pitch that can be a subplot. Death. A steampunk gnome city. And more.
