The hits seem to keep on coming for Durkula
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

Hm. I feel sorry for Durkon finding this out this way. Note yet another hint that Durkula may really not understand humanoid psychology at all in that he didn't even realize he had leverage over Durkon until Durkon effectively pointed it out.

Though it's a bit unclear exactly how much that leverage will accomplish. Hilgya is well prepared against most things the vampires are likely to be able to dish out, and I'm not sure Durkon can actually do to help Durkula win, or if, when the chips are down, he will.

It might give Durkon some extra motivation to lessen Durkulas control over his dead body. The Power of Love would fit well into the narrativium, Elan and Tarquin would love it.

How is Durkon's mum carrying that bowl?

She could reasonably be pinning it against her body with one arm, it's just that the angle she's drawn at makes it look like she's not holding it in a stable way.

Yeah.

What can V and/or the dwarven NPC cleric (er, the lower-level one) plausibly do against the vampire mind control effect?

Depends on whether they prepared protection from evil and if so how many times. If V prepared magic circle against evil and hadn't cast it yet (an unlikely scenario) it could shut down the whole thing right now.
