Spoiler
That looks like it's a Hammer of Thunderbolts. Minor Artifacts in 3rd edition/Pathfinder. Or it's a magic item that's enchanted out the ass end. Either way, looks like Durkon is bringing the pain....

1155 is up.

The plot continues, slowly

"In view of the circumstances, Britannia waives the rules."

"All you have to do is to look at Northern Ireland, [...] to see how seriously the religious folks take "thou shall not kill. The more devout they are, the more they see murder as being negotiable." George Carlin

"We need to make gay people live in fear again! What ever happened to the traditional family values of persecution and lies?" - Darth Wong
"The closet got full and some homosexuals may have escaped onto the internet?"- Stormbringer

It occurs to me that there is a lot riding on exactly how Dvalin interprets "obey the will of the Council." Yes he is clearly extremely Lawful as shown by his decision to refrain from ending an immediate threat to the existence of the world and the damnation of his people in order to keep his word, but even so it seems like "I swore to obey the will of the elders who make up the Council, not the undead spirits Dominating/possessing their corpses" could easily meet both the letter and spirit of his promise.

Looks like there's going to be a need for epic rules layering and/or the Dwarf cleric super-team saving the day.

There could be additional considerations that the vampires are not considering.

Like proving the council is mind controlled, and the demigod goes 'Oh hel no', and removes the mind-control on them.

Elan was right, that double throw was pretty damn cool.

Roy's Dad called it on the "solving the Dwarven heaven" problem.
"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."

Given the non standard speech bubble I'm thinking something a little more planar, maybe some sort of Dwarf Assimar? Or even a Celestial.

/r/oots seems to think it's something like a Assimar, yeah
