Ashna won't appear until after Parson starts dating Vanna.

I don't know about that one. Vanna will have lots of problems competing against Cesear :P

What, for Parson's affection?
I don't know if it was already mentioned, but that little masked guy looks like a cross between Team Fortress Spy and Morty.
Just one thing to say.

1. So Charlie's name is Charlie Brain. Did we already know that?

2. Ivan has an extendable neck. What is that a reference to (in literature/character)? Racial ability? Special?

Charlie's high, I wouldn't take what he says as anything but projections of his insecurities.

"He pulled his mind together the way they make cotton candy at the county fair." is an interestingly un-Erfly way of phrasing things from Charlie, plus some definite Stupidworld swears that even Parson had to force his way through, and which when we saw Judy she hadn't broken, still being forced to use "boop".
Bump. Rob's not giving us any proof, of course, just enough incongruous behavior to keep the "Charlie is from (a) Stupidworld" theory alive and well :).

I Believe it is more likely that Charlie is a stupidworlder because he let slips the word die (and not just the stupidworld curses that are automagically "booped") because he is feeling it. And not putting the facade he always use to keep everyone guessing. He also names this world as "a game" wich he could loose.
I think Rob did not as much tried to keep the theory alive but to give a sense of what Charlie feels when he is not pretending and playing you.

Edith: When he tells the archon he says that they are croacked, although he "thinks" in a different terminology

I wonder if appearing as Willy Wonka, a reference to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is meant to suggest that the two 'naughty' children weren't going to make it.

Even more important: Charlie doesn't recognize the Stupidworld reference that his avatar represents or the specific phrases that he uses. Isn't that interesting...


In the original, all of the children were fine the next day, but maybe, just a little bit wiser.

In the remake, and the book, the altered children were alive, but definitely different afterwards.

(Has it been 40 years since I read the book?)

The comment that his signamancy is connected to Claude's implies he's the remake Willy, but the lines being quoted are from the original. I haven't seen the remake; did they recycle those (rather specific) lines in it?


I certainly do not remember those lines, or any variant, being in the remake.

How did he figure out that Parson had no treasury sense?

Deduction.

Between his reaction when GK ran out of money, and his lack of reaction to turning to CC and not sensing/reacting to size of the treasury, it's a pretty strong indication.

For confirmation? ... hmm, actually, I got nothing on a third event.
And I need a good negative failure test as well as confirming events.

Idea: his string is already cut (he's already dead), but those devices are keeping his body in Erfworld; he found a way to prevent depopping. Might be related to Charlie/Tondy's experiment with the chicken that couldn't die.


I like this thought. It would explain the 'my skin has no blood' signamancy AND his inability to move (dead things can't move). Perhaps the only thing keeping him alive is the Arkendish, forcing his mind to function even though he himself is long dead.


This ... brings to mind both episodes of Doctor Who, and The Matrix, and in general the idea of a zombie apocalypse. Even going to the needing brains that the update starts with.

(that's the first 6 pages tonight, and roughly a week of catching up ...)

Come on, guys. Let's not burst into epileptic trees again.

We were recently introduced to the knowledge that the great minds can see through bedrock, and cut strings at a distance. It seems to me that they were monitoring Claude and Ivan, and saw them turn to Charlescomm.

And they decided to cut their strings.


Definitely the Great Minds. I believed that before I read the page where Bunny killed Don by cutting his thread. Claud and Ivan doomed themselves. The best part? It's the perfect crime. No one knows about the bunker, no one can get down there with the Wonky Wrench gone, the bodies will depop, the action figures down there are unrecoverable so their memories can't be read like Bunny did to the Maggie doll, and the GM have already convinced the other Casters that Matter that Claud and Ivan have fled to CC. No one will ever know that Claud and Ivan and dead and gone and they will never be decrypted to tell their side of the story. It's kinda sad actually that they had to die in such obscurity like their lives never mattered to Fate. Their deaths will be a mystery forever unless the GM's secrets spill out.
I'm sure there're gonna be secrets a-gushin' pretty soon. :think:
