YMMV: Nodwick
  • Anvilicious: Occasionally.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Only Piffany could disable an evil cleric with GOSH-DARNED SMILEY FACES.
    • Remember that thief that was in the party before they hired Nodwick? The reason the group couldn't get rid of him was because his contract stated that unless he was caught stealing from the party, they couldn't fire him. Unfortunately, he was so good that no method the group tried could catch him in the act and Yeagar ultimately ended up resorting to scrambling his grey matter with a cursed artifact in order to get him out of the party. When this proved to be a temporary solution, it's Nodwick who saves the day by rigging the swag he was carrying so that a precious and valuable item that said thief wanted to steal would serve as a lynchpin. Its removal buried the thief under the pile of loot, resulting in him being caught and finally being fired from the party. Said thief got the last word though, as he responded by stealing the clothes off Nodwick's back before leaving.
    • Then there was the time when Yeager was being controlled by the Gauntlet of Supremacy, which caused him to raise an army to wage a world war with. When Nodwick and co. go in his mind to save him, they find Yeager practically broken by the Gauntlet. Yet when reminded of Rowen, the one woman he's ever loved, he breaks free. From the mind control of a god-created epic item of evil!
    • Of course, the real Rowen wasn't exactly the Girl Next Door his mind depicted her as...
  • Evil Is Sexy: Brought up to explain why Countess Repugsive pretends to be male.
    Repugsive: Evil girls are only taken seriously when they're hot. While I was alive, I didn't look much better than I do now.
    Zorion: That would explain the "wonderful personality" you were famous for...
  • Magnificent Bastard: Baphuma'al.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Here. Some monsters get credit they can't really afford against a henchman's back pay that he hasn't seen a copper piece yet of after the henchman signs the I.O.U over to them... yeah.
  • Purity Sue: Piffany's goodness is so infamous that at one point she is courted by every goodly aligned being in the cosmos to be their avatar, because she's SO virtuous and pure that having her would increase their power exponentially. How does she get out of this sticky wicket? It's revealed in another entry below...
  • Tear Jerker: A representative of the Powers What Is offers Nodwick a chance to stay dead forever. Nodwick balks, whereupon the rep takes him into the possible future after his death only to find Piffany having a perpetual Heroic BSOD over Nodwick's final death, building and maintaining a huge monument and garden in memory of "the one I couldn't save".
