Well, there's composure in the face of death and there's these guys.
On a side note, good to finally see in this story arc that Randulf's survival in Marblegate up to this point was not (only) due to dumb luck. Dude really is a nasty warrior. Beautiful headshot.

Can't think your way out of a head shot unless your Professor Zoom. (And have a get out of hell free card.)

it seems they have the ability to alter their brain and survive damage.
Usefull skill when your only armor is a rubber like substance, but it has its limits ...

I am not eating spaghetti today. Great detail on the damages received from the spear. But damn the juice in that thing, check out how gunked that spear is from the exit wound! It's completely painted in it.

Beautiful page as always, it really satisfying to see one of the bite the dust and see how badass Randolph is.

Very poetic death :) But his heap of stuff and himself makes me think: Why under the earth do they use theese greek/roman statues and added robes? Isn't there some Chtulhu figure around? Why not a stylish contraption from ivy and grass? :D

It was already explained in a previous comment by the author that it's basically mimicry. Most intelligent lifeforms around here are humanoid, most tools are designed to be wielded by humanoid, so these guys just use their psychokinetic powers with bits of statues to take some semblance of humanoid shape. They're trying to blend in! (And not really succeeding. Though it's hard to practice when your attempts to negotiate like reasonable people with the locals end up with a spear through your brain.)

Fascinating. The wounded seerebellum objectively logged its injury and death step-by-step in real time like a computer would. Meanwhile, almost like a colony organism or "hive mind", another seerebellum tried to help it repair itself by telepathically suggesting it "restructure its synapses".
This may be the most complex dungeon monster I have ever seen!

I wonder if the seerebellums collect data like this across their "neural network" to learn from their encounters, and improve their chances of survival?

Awesome!

Those are certainly the most to-the-point last words imaginable.

If Randulf is not already mid-swing with his axe on the next one by now, I will be full of disappoint.

But love how the Serrebellums are so serious in their direct logic and lack of emotions that one would deal with a mortal wound in this way. I liken it to a computer error/event log leading up to a system crash.

Seriously though, if regular animals were good enough sacrifices, these guys could have had an endless flow. Every dungeoneer would have been in on that deal keeping someone inside to open the door for them on that specific dungeon and letting the animals in to exchange for navigation of the dungeon. But I truly suspect that A worthy sacrifice must be sentient and possibly have other qualities, such as faith, otherwise they would have taken Randulf as well.

Colleen as soon as she's rescued: "You thought about accepting their deal, didn't you?!?!"
Deoxy 26th Jan 2022, 8:12 PM edit delete reply
OF COURSE he did. Heck, he told her IN ADVANCE that he would TAKE such a deal!

And then he didn't. He'll probably hold it over both of them for a good while.
