Dungeons & Dragons is a film released in 2000, based on the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game.

In The Empire of Izmer, Mages rule with iron fists whilst the Commoners are lowly slaves. Empress Savina (Thora Birch) wants all her subjects to be socially equal and able to prosper, but the evil, overacting Archmage Profion (Jeremy Irons) plots to depose her and establish his own rule. The Empress possesses a scepter which controls Izmer's Golden Dragons. To challenge her rule, Profion must have the scepter, to which end he tricks the Council of Mages into believing Savina is unfit to hold it. Knowing that Profion will soon get his hands on her rod and use it to wreak havoc, Savina seeks the Rod of Savrille, which controls Red Dragons, a species even mightier than the Gold. Two common thieves, Ridley (Justin Whalin) and Snails (Marlon Wayans), plus an apprentice Mage named Marina (Zoe McLellan) get embroiled in these matters somehow and end up embarking on a scarcely-coherent quest for the Rod themselves. Along the way, they're joined by the requisite elf and dwarf. Profion sends his henchman, Damodar (Bruce Payne) (who wears blue lipstick for some reason), after them. Do they succeed in their quest? You get three guesses.note

So, how much does any of this actually have to do with Dungeons & Dragons? Well, a Beholder is seen very briefly, acting Out of Character, and at one point a "Feeblemind" spell is mentioned, and... that's about it.

In 2005, a made-for-TV sequel titled Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God premiered on the Sci-Fi Channel. It spawned another Non-Linear Sequel in 2012, Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness.

Dungeons & Dragons provides examples of the following tropes:

  • 10-Minute Retirement: After Snails dies, Ridley briefly swears off the quest until Marina educates him on what the Empress is trying to do.
  • Action Girl: Norda, the Elf Tracker: unlike Marina, she's a deadly fighter, racking up an impressive body count between the bar brawl she gets caught in and the party's escape from Damodar's goons.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Snails's reaction to Marina's crack about how she'd have to put a Feeblemind spell on herself to want to hang out with him and Ridley.
  • All There in the Manual:
    • Dragon magazine published third-edition stats for all the major characters. The main adventuring party were all third-level, Norda the elf ranger was seventh-level, and Profion was a fifteenth-level wizard.
    • Elwood the Dwarf's name is mentioned only once in the actual movie, and it's easy to miss.
  • The Archmage: Profion. He holds this as his title in the Empire of Izmir. As such, he heads up their Council of Mages. He is hands down the most powerful magic user in the film.
  • Armor Is Useless: Averted with Damodar; when Ridley swings his sword at Damodar's chest, the armor stops it cold. He also blocks all the previous strikes with his arm guards. It's played straight in the climax, since Ridley's blade has been enchanted. The blade itself doesn't get through the armor, but the magic still shocks Damodar.
  • Artifact of Doom: The Rod of Savrille is, as Ridley learns when he reaches it, pure evil. Anyone who uses it is subject to a horrible fate (its creator is a living skeleton cursed to guard it until someone takes it), and only by breaking the spell is the curse avoided. Ridley destroys it rather than use it, sparing him.
  • An Axe to Grind: Elwood the Dwarf's primary weapon.
  • Badass Boast: Profion gets a decent one as he confronts Ridley.
    Profion: You think you can take away my destiny?! I'll invent a new destiny, especially for you, full of pain! New kinds of pain...and new senses to feel it with!
  • Bald of Evil: Damodar: while Profion's a bad egg, his second-in-command proves himself even more brutal and sadistic.
  • Bar Full of Aliens: Or in this case, of fantasy creatures. A bar in the movie is shown to have a clientele made up of many non-human creatures.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Maria is introduced grousing about how she feels like she should be doing more with her life than playing librarian in the wizard's school: barely an hour later, Damodar storms the school, kills her master, and forces her on a harrowing quest with a pair of obnoxious thieves.
  • Berserk Button: Don't shoot the dwarf's helm off him. He's very sensitive about his...ahem...'hairstyle'.
    Elwood: You shouldn't have done that...
  • Big Bad: Profion, the evil Archmage.
  • Big "NO!": Ridley, when Snails dies.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Snails is the first major character to die. Technically the first named character to die was Vildan, but he barely counts.
  • Body Horror: Profion uses magic to implant a leech-like worm in Damodar's brain. Per Word of God, it was supposed to be a Mind-Flayer, although it bore no resemblance to one (Mind-Flayers are Cthulhumanoids in the game). Larval Mind-Flayers resemble tadpoles and are often inserted into their (unwilling) victims through the ear by their sires, but the host is soon incapacitated as ceremorphosis (the process of transformation into a new adult Mind-Flayer) takes effect. Perhaps Profion made some modifications to it for purposes of torture.
  • Break the Haughty: Both Marina and Ridley go through this to varying degrees. Ridley acknowledges that his arrogance in trying to give the Mages the middle finger by robbing the wizard school ended up getting his best friend killed, and it shakes him to the point that he nearly gives up on the quest and any hope of overthrowing the status quo. Marina's harsh lesson in humility is the crux of her Character Development: she starts off a haughty, aristocratic mage who delights in disparaging commoners like Ridley and Snails as unintelligent plebeians. Then she's roped into the quest and quickly learns how useless she ultimately is, ending up being saved and protected by the commoners she looks down on again and again and again. By the end, she's come to realize that social status has absolutely nothing to do with one's worth, and finds herself falling in love with Ridley for his confidence, resourcefulness and never-say-die attitude.
  • Brick Joke: In their first scene, Snails cracks a joke about "Ridley the savior," gently mocking his best friend's Small Name, Big Ego. At the end of the film, Ridley tries to invoke it as an affectionate Ironic Echo at Snails' grave...before nearly breaking down as he remembers his ego got his friend killed.
  • The Cameo: Tom Baker as the Elf King. Yes, really. Also, watch for Richard O'Brien playing to type as a weird, creepy character with ulterior motives.
  • Captain Obvious: Damodar: "Just like you thieves, always taking things that don't belong to you." Granted, he was taunting Snails over said thieving habits having just landed Snails in a world of trouble.
  • The Chosen One: Ridley learns he is this when he is the only member of his party to enter the cave where the Rod of Savrille is kept, and is able to take it and leave.
  • Cold Ham: Damodar chews a lot of scenery despite mostly speaking in a drawling monotone.
  • Concepts Are Cheap: The Empress talks a big game about wanting to give more rights and freedoms to the commoners, but what this entails is never explained.
  • Conspicuous CG: Some of the visual effects look quite decent, although the low budget made the dragons seem a little... blocky.
  • Costume Porn: Hit and miss. Anything regal, like the Empress's dresses, looks absolutely stunning; everything else looks like it came from a seasonal local costume shop.
  • Cowardly Sidekick: Snails seems like this on the surface. When cornered by Damodar, he stands his ground and fights to his last breath.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Snails vs. Damodar. He manages to nick Damodar with a dagger, but he mostly gets his ass kicked. Then Damodar murders him.
    • Ridley vs. Damodar. The first round goes pretty badly for Ridley, whose sword is useless against Damodar's armor. He does better in round two, since the elves gave his sword a magic upgrade. All of these are results that might be expected when unarmored, apparently low-level Thieves try a frontal assault on a high-level Fighter in plate armor.
    • The entire party vs. Profion. Ridley gets a beatdown from Profion's staff, while the rest of them get hit with paralyzing magic and tossed aside. The Empress is likewise pinned by Profion's familiar, but she manages to grab her scepter and has one of her dragons eat him.
  • Death Glare: The movie opens with Profion trying to tame a Gold Dragon with a prototype scepter. After some seconds of struggle, the beast destroys it with a glare.
  • Defector from Decadence: After Profion's and the Empress's confrontation in front of the council, when the Empress leaves and Profion rallies the mages behind him, you can see some mages quickly leaving their seats. It's implied that they joined the Empress's side. Indeed, during the final battle, she's accompanied by a group of mages.
  • Defiant to the End: Snails when fighting Damodar.
    Damodar: If you give me the Dragon's Eye, I may decide to let you die quickly.
    Snails: GO TO HELL!
  • Dem Bones: Savrille, the original creator of the Rod of Savrille, was cursed by the Gods. He was forced to possess his own skeleton, pinned to the wall of his treasure-filled tomb, until The Chosen One claims the Rod. It was punishment for the crime of hubris, believing mankind should be allowed to command Red (Evil) Dragons.
  • Democracy Is Bad: Averted, to some extent. The (presumably hereditary) teenage empress is the Big Good, but her proposed royal decree is to extend the vote to commoners and end the Deadly Decadent Court of authoritarian mages.
  • Disney Villain Death: Ridley runs Damodar through and then chucks him off a tower. Rather appropriate, considering he did pretty much the same thing to Snails.
  • The Dragon: Damodar to Profion. Damodar is Chief of the Crimson Brigade and meets the heroes several times while Profion is an untouchable aristocrat giving the orders. By the time of the final battle, pretty much all the heroes have a personal beef with him, Damodar having killed Ridley's best friend and Marina's master before subjecting Marina herself to Mind Rape, and having shot Elwood's helmet off.
  • Dull Surprise: Ridley, Savina, and Damodar all seem to deliver their lines like this a lot of the time.
  • Dungeon Bypass: Ridley elects to balance on top of a series of swinging pendulums in the Guild Maze instead of trying to maneuver through them.
  • Elves vs. Dwarves: Elwood hates elves, as you do. The animosity, however, doesn't seem to be reciprocated: Norda at least barely seems to register him.
  • Evil Counterpart: Profion to Ridley: they both share the Fatal Flaw of Pride and both nurture a thirst for power and recognition. Before his character development, Ridley is hinted to have a habit of demanding difficult heists for the sake of his reputation, and not seeming to mind if Snails gets screwed over in the process, just as Profion doesn't care who gets hurt in his bid for rule over Izmir. Ridley is devastated, however, when one of his ideas ends up causing Snails's death, and by the time of the final battle, he seems to recognize that should he let his darker side define him, he'd end up just like Profion.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Profion basically offers the Empress a whole deep-fried pig. By contrast, Damodar offers up Cold Ham.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Profion. Damodar too, though unlike his Squishy Wizard master, he's not above getting his hands dirty.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: In case laymen are confused, in the first two minutes of the film, we see a dragon trapped in a dungeon.
  • Fantastic Racism: We got our classic Elves vs. Dwarves with Elwood and Norda (though Norda barely seems to even register Elwood), but the prime example in Izmir is 'Commoner' vs 'Mage'. The Mages look down on and oppress the Commoners, and the Commoners are none too fond of their oppressors. Say what you will about the movie, but the sheer venom in Ridley's voice during his argument with Marina is palpable.
    Marina: You're wrong-
    Ridley: No, you're wrong! MAGE!
  • Fate Worse than Death: The worm-thing that Profion puts into Damodar's head.
    Damodar: Do not let them escape or you will suffer a fate far worse than that which hath been inflicted upon me.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Ridley was a multi-class fighter-thief already and the movie repeatedly drops hints that were supposed to play out in a sequel that he had a talent for magic as well. In the context of the party itself, Ridley and Snails were Thieves, Elwood was the Fighter, and Marina was the Mage.
  • Five-Man Band:
    • The Hero: Ridley: A (seemingly) ordinary thief who uses his wit, agility and guile to overcome his challenges as much as his skill with a sword.
    • The Lancer: Snails: Cautious and conservative where his friend is hot-headed and quick to jump into trouble without thinking.
    • The Smart Guy: Norda: An elf with the most insight into the situation and combat experience.
    • The Big Guy: Elwood: A boistrous dwarf who prefers to smash first, ask questions later.
    • The Chick: Marina: An apprentice mage who quickly learns she's unequipped for the real world when she's tossed out of her ivory tower and into the streets, forced to rely on the commoners she looked down on to survive.
  • Foil: Ridley and Snails are foils to each other: while Ridley is a hot-headed daredevil, Snails is far more down-to-earth and cautious. Even their approach to thievery is different: while Ridley prefers the big scores and is just as concerned about his reputation as a thief as the treasure itself, Snails will pilfer pretty much anything not nailed down.
  • Forgot About His Powers:
    • Despite being a mage, Marina casts very little magic despite being able to talk and move her hands freely. This might have something to do with her being an apprentice. When she manages to get her hands on magic powder, she does a lot better.
    • Damodar too: it's easy to forget he's even a mage at all, considering his penchant for swords and heavy plate armor. He even stoops to using a crossbow at one point. The only spell he's shown using at all, in fact, is a portal he opens right at the end.
  • Functional Addict: Hinted with Damodar: his blue lips are a sign of heavy Sannish use, but he's captain of the guard for a damn good reason.
  • Groin Attack: Snails was on the receiving end of one in the past from a halfling when they tried to rob his house. Judging by the way Ridley mouths along as Snails recollects it, his friend just will not stop bringing it up.
  • Ham-to-Ham Combat:
  • Happiness in Slavery: Played with. The commoner subjects of the Empire are stated to be slaves to the Magocracy, so the Empress's plan to free them is treated like it's a world-shattering event. Despite this, outright 'slavery' of the commoners is never shown: it seems more like a simple class system that most commoners are fine with, if only because they've been Conditioned to Accept Horror. A deleted scene goes into a bit more detail about their plight, revealing that some Mages barely register commoners as human: they thought nothing of magically lobotomizing a commoner inventor and stealing the credit for his creations. Whether this is a common sentiment among the Mages is unclear, but Marina, even at her most sheltered and bigoted, was speechless with disgust when Ridley told her about his father's fate.
  • Healing Hands: The elf healer uses magic from his hands to cure Ridley's stab wound. Marina is surprised he didn't need a spell to do it.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Implied. During the final climactic battle, the Empress is accompanied by a group of mages who chose her side over Profion's.
  • The High Queen: The Empress: she's one of the few Mages willing to abolish the class system, and the movie ends with Ridley going off to be knighted by her.
  • Hollywood Torches: There are a number of torches burning on the walls of the den of thieves and even inside the maze of booby traps.
  • Honor Among Thieves: Ridley thinks that makes his people better than the backstabbing Mages of the ruling class. It later turns out that only thieves of Sumdall feel this way.
    Ridley: We may live outside the law but we respect each other.
  • Hope Spot: A rare villain example at the beginning of the movie: Profion's elated that the prototype staff he built to control Golden Dragons finally works...until the dragon breaks free.
    Profion: With a dragon army at my command, I can crush the empress, and rule what is rightfully mine!(...)Now, follow me.
    The Dragon: (takes a few steps forward, then backs away)
    Profion: (more forcefully) Follow me.
    The Dragon: (continues to back away)
    Profion: I SAID FOLLOW ME!
    (the dragon shoots the staff a Death Glare and the staff fizzles out, leaving Profion staring in horror)
  • I Gave My Word: Profion promises Damodar that he'll remove the parasite from his head if he successfully retrieves the scepter. When Damodar succeeds, he does so after being reminded of his end of the bargain.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Damodar, when Ridley knocks him off the castle ledge at the end.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Marina tries to console Ridley after Snails's death by telling him Snails died for a good cause. This only serves to outright infuriate Ridley, since, well, he didn't know what the cause was and as far as he was concerned his best friend's death was just the result of him getting caught up in a power play between power-hungry Mages and stepped on as collateral.
  • It's Personal with the Dragon: To Ridley, Profion is just another scheming mage, while Damodar is the guy who killed his friend right in front of him. Guess which one is his Arch-Enemy whom he battles at the climax of the movie.
  • Just Desserts: Profion ends up being eaten by a gold dragon summoned by Savina.
  • Large Ham: Profion, courtesy of Jeremy Irons: "Let the blood RAIN from the SKY!!!" Which ends up sounding more like "LET THEIR BLUD REEIIINNN FROM THA SKAAAAAAAUAUUUUGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!"
  • Lovable Rogue: What Ridley and Snails were meant to be. Whether they actually are depends on the viewer.
  • Magic Map: The one they're all after, which somehow pulls Ridley and Marina into it.note 
  • Magic Wand: Scepters that command dragons are the chief Plot Devices here.
  • The Magocracy: The mages rule and have far higher status than the non-mages, and they want it to stay that way.
  • Menacing Stroll: Damodar uses this method rather inappropriately when he's chasing after Snails through a building with no locked doors. He even takes a moment to casually adjust his collar. His blase attitude becomes a little more understandable when he manages to catch up to Snails regardless and beat the stuffing out of him: the poor thief never had a prayer of escaping.
  • Milking the Giant Cow: Profion has a tendency for this.
  • Mind Rape: Damodar uses the parasite in his head to slowly and agonizingly suck the information he wants out of Marina's mind. When Ridley finds her afterward, she's swaddled herself in blankets and is curled up in the corner crying. Also, a deleted scene reveals that Mages jealous of Ridley's inventor father did this to him and stole all the credit for his inventions.
  • Moral Myopia: Ridley, a thief, is shocked to his core when another thief robs him.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Marina: the nerdy librarian look goes away rather early, though, and by the end she's more Unkempt Beauty.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Damodar gives Snails one before he can escape with the map.
  • No Name Given: The Dwarf's name is Elwood Gutworthy, but it only gets one mention when Ridley offhandedly tells him to wait outside the Thieves' Guild. (He properly introduces himself in a Deleted Scene, though.)
  • Non-Action Guy: Snails: he's got a knife for emergencies, but unlike Ridley he's a pure Thief and not good with combat: when a battle breaks out in the Thieves Guild, he takes the opportunity to duck behind a counter and pilfer as much as he can.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: Ridley is initially roped into the plot against his will, and goes along with it because he and Snails really have no better option. Once Snails is killed, Ridley loses even that motivation, disparaging the whole affair as a power struggle between Mages that he really couldn't care less about. Once Marina tells him about the Empress's plans to uplift the Commoners and get rid of the class system, however, his opinion changes quick-smart.
  • Obi-Wan Moment: From Snails, no less: Damodar has beaten him to a bloody pulp and is holding him hostage, demanding the Dragon's Eye in exchange. Ridley is about to comply...then he notices Snails grinning as he pulls out the map. Before Ridley can stop him, Snails chucks the map to him and Marina, and a furious Damodar knifes him to death.
  • Obviously Evil: Profion, at least most of the time: he can put on a show of being a Gentleman Wizard if it suits his needs, complete with fancy white dress robes when he's in front of the council. Damodar is even more thuggish.
  • Only Sane Man: Snails, shockingly enough. He's far more cautious and conservative than Ridley, and ultimately every one of his gut feelings come true in one way or another. Unfortunately, this doesn't end up saving him as Ridley and Marina charge bullheadedly into the situations Snails is trying to warn them against, and while they manage to come out on top, Snails's luck isn't nearly as good.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Even has the Dwarf mention female Dwarf beards and a fight with a gang of Orcs.
  • Our Elves Are Better: Zigzagged. Elves are just as reliant on the (human) chosen one as the rest of us, but they do give the requisite "Man bad, nature good" speech.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Maybe, maybe not. The Dragons themselves aren't different, but their hatching is where life comes from.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Empress Savina has a few regal dresses.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: The film's novelization changed several aspects for the better. Snails became the Only Sane Man (a role severely undercut by his Comic Relief status in the movie), the Dwarf's name was actually used, and the film's good deleted scenes were reinserted.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: The purple-headed guy (credited as "Three Eyes") tells Ridley and company to leave Antius "before you get the words 'Outsiders NOT Appreciated.' Branded. Right. Where. Your. Nose. Used. To be."
  • Quicksand Sucks: A booby-trap in Damodar's castle is a quicksand pit disguised as a fancy rug.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: Profion's evil lair is so covered in human bones it comes across as extremely heavy-handed and over the top. While it certainly fits Profion's personality, it's a real place, and more or less unaltered.
  • Red Right Hand: Damodar's blue lips. He could be addicted to Sannish, a drug that causes permanent staining of the lips; later on he says that he cannot control his urges, supporting this.
  • Rescue Romance: Ridley's confidence and determination slowly wins Marina over over the course of their adventures, despite her initial distaste for him. But it's only after he rescues her from Damodar's fortress that she starts being honest with her feelings: having gotten the Eye of the Dragon, he had no need to risk his life saving her. But he does anyway, and Marina glomps him on sight.
  • Sanity Slippage: Somehow, Profion becomes even hammier after getting his hands on the Rod of Savrille: by the time Ridley confronts him, the mage has gone from simply 'theatrical and melodramatic' to 'entirely unhinged'.
    Profion: LET THEIR BLOOD! RAIN! FROM THE SKYYYYYYYYYY!
  • Scenery Porn:
    • In a very limited sense. Any time there's a scene in that council chamber, drink it in. The filmmakers used a real Czech palace, and it's truly gorgeous.
    • Really any interior scene that takes place in Izmer. They made extensive use of real-world locations, such as Profion's lair being a real bone chapel in Prague.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Show Within a Show: The film seems to hint at the end that the entire film was a campaign session, with the players leaving after it ends (it would explain the cheesiness of the plot that mimics other storylines of popular entertainment).note 
  • Some Kind of Force Field: When our heroes run into a Wall of Force spell that prevents everyone but Ridley from passing, it shimmers a bit, and they exclaim, "It's some sort of wall of force!"
  • Spell Blade: Ridley's blade is enchanted after his first fight with Damodar, causing it to release yellow energy with each strike. Damodar's blade has a similar effect, only purple.
  • Supernormal Bindings: When Ridley and Snails break into the library, Marina catches them in conjured ropes that seem to pull them along wherever she goes.
  • Tae Kwon Door: Having lost control of the dragon when his prototype scepter broke, Profion sends two quick Magic Missiles into the cage door's winches: the door crashes down and crushes the charging dragon's neck.
  • Team Hand-Stack: At the end of the movie the four remaining protagonists do a hand stack over the Eye of the Dragon gem and are teleported away.
  • Tragic Bigot: A deleted scene explains why Ridley has such a deep-rooted hatred of Mages even by commoner standards: Mages were jealous of his inventor father and couldn't stand that a commoner could be such a genius. Their solution to the problem was to magically lobotomize him and steal credit for all his inventions.
  • Too Dumb to Live: The thieves. Sure, breaking into a wizard school to steal something valuable is a brilliant idea. Snails even snarks at Ridley about just how stupid this is (but still goes with him). They are quickly caught in Supernormal Bindings and definitely would have received a severe punishment if not for the plot happening.
  • Too Fast to Stop: Marina is so frantic to escape Damodar during his attack on the wizard school that she runs full bore through a portal in full panic mode; by the time she realizes a huge pile of garbage is in her path, she's running too fast and clumsily to stop and slams face-first into it.
  • Uncle Tomfoolery: Snails. Played with: as goofy, loud and annoying as he can be, he's actually smarter than Ridley, constantly pointing out his daredevil friend's rash decisions and usually being right: it's Ridley's refusal to heed him that ultimately costs Snails his life. When cornered by Damodar, Snails's over-the-top routine all but vanishes as he stands his ground and fights to his last breath.
    Damodar: You cannot be serious.
  • Unfortunate Name: Profion. The Nostalgia Critic points out that it sounds like a name for a heartburn medication.
  • Villainous Breakdown: The Rod of Savrille starts wearing away at Profion's already-fragile sanity over the course of the final battle, and once the Rod is destroyed he completely loses it. It culminates with him pinning the Empress to the ground with a familiar and screaming an incantation at the top of his lungs. He's so out of it that he doesn't notice the Empress struggling for her fallen scepter and using it to summon a dragon until the beast's shadow falls over him. At that point he can do nothing but gawk blankly as the dragon lunges down and devours him.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Profion presents one so basic that a blind svirfneblin could see through it. He suggests that the Council votes to remove the Empress' Artifact of Doom (likely so he can claim it) from her possession, effectively making her powerless. If she agrees, he's removed his biggest political opponent. If not, he will claim it's proof that the empress does not have the council's best interest in mind.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Actually subverted in the film's one really clever moment: we're led to believe Profion will kill Damodar after he brings him the Artifact of Doom, but then he removes the parasite, as he promised.
  • You Said You Would Let Them Go:
    • Ridley surrenders the Rod of Savrille to Damodar, against his compatriots' requests, then says this to Damodar. Damodar replies, "I Lied."
    • Played with when Damodar gives the Rod to Profion, demanding that Profion undo the spell placed on him. Profion seems more concerned with the Rod, but honors his end of the deal when Damodar presses the issue.
