The hammer is definitely imbued with Godspell magic.

The good news is that such magic grants Jolly a glowy aura that counters the chill of the spirits touch, it gives him some healing, and returns a portion of the strength that the spirit has drained off him.

The bad news is that the creatures claws pass right through his armor and do more than simply cut skin. The spirit creature has far better reach, and will not likely tire if the battle goes into extra rounds.

But the worst of it is still to come.

I tried something a little different here.

I want to tint things as the air itself is being distorted from all the arcane and divine energies that are filtering into cave.

(The magic is coming from the Wraith-creature, Jolly's Hammer, and that little critter.)

I don't think it came off bad, but not as smoothly as I wanted either.

The atmosphere is absolutely magical!
But I fear all this release of energies is going to attract some really unwelcome attention!

I guess it would depend on who you ask, but Jolly has gotten the attention of more things unseen than he bargained for!

I agree with the two above me. I really like his unique speech bubbles too.

Thanks =) I wish I could take credit for the spirits speech bubble, but that one is a tried and true haunting standard.

Is it an appropriate time for a "Stop! Hammer time!" meme?

I can get on board with that, and throw in 'Can't touch this' in favor of the spirit creature!

Well, when you go a decade between meals, everything begins to look tasty before too long.

You may notice that there aren't even any insects in the cave, no life at all in fact!
