Charlie would actually make a good Stupidworlder if he could find some way to switch over. I wonder now...

That's an ending for Charlie that I could accept.

Uh, if Charlie can't fix what's wrong with him in a world where everyone is restored to perfect health at dawn, with literally magical healers for when that's not good enough, and with access to a type of magic that can significantly improve the magical healers' abilities when that's not good enough, what makes you think Stupidworld has what it takes to fix him?


Magical addiction to a plant is in like green rocks territory. For all we know, going to Stupidworld would fix his addiction instantly since magic as Erfers know it doesn't exist there. I'm very curious about how Judy made out when she got back home.

I don't think Charlie's plant addiction is the cause of his paralysis, though.
Really? I never considered that. Do you have an alternative theory for his paralysis?

Just re-reading, and realized Charlie said 'die' instead of 'croak' in the last line
Did Parson notice?


Well, those words do exist in Erfworld, they are just harsher sounding. If anyone is grounded enough and jaded enough to use the word "die" instead of "croak", it's Charlie. Charlie would actually make a good Stupidworlder if he could find some way to switch over. I wonder now... If Charlie and Parson actually do make a truce, maybe Parson will bring Charlie back with him. Then Charlie would have a fixed up body, get a job, and join in on Parson's gaming group. That's an ending for Charlie that I could accept. Without Fate or his powers around, Charlie's paranoia could resolve itself back into reason. Charlie and Parson could then work together to make the next big board game and call it "Erfworld". They would become millionaires!

That's it boys and girls. I found the ending. We can all stop arguing now. Story's over. Everyone go home.


When Parson returns, there's a dude at his table who resembles Bogroll, if Bogroll were human. Bobby Rollins. And they become best bros and high-five. And Sizemore, who is an excellent horticulturalist.
And then there's a woman who resembles Maggie and they fall in love and have like dozen kids.
And then there's Stanley, who in an ironic twist, pulls a Biff from Back to the Future and winds up being middle management in Parson's and Charlie's company.

It was Olive's assassination/de-attunement concoction. On this page, Olive says, "He and I would link, and I would cultivate flowers and plants under his guidance. But he was...traveling away, into himself. And he was only seeking Flower Power as a means of traveling farther. He was fond of the hero buds...” So he was using the buds before Olive did whatever she did that ultimately drove him away. We saw Wanda, Jillian, and Judy Gale all in the later stages of hero bud addiction, and none of them were paralyzed. Whatever Olive gave him is what did it, not the buds.
I don't think Digdoug is Sizemore.
The fact that Charlie exists and is an enemy of GK just elicits all of nothing. Sizemore is just the usual blahhhhh, I don't care. And if Sizemore is Digdoug he certainly hasn't gathered any information in that time and mentioned it to Parson at any time before now.

There's also the interesting prophecy that Digdoug will be a ruler. (The signet ring in his possession is supposed to be the ring of a ruler once more.)
Which would admittedly be a pretty cool arc for Sizemore.
Technically speaking, the ring will belong to a ruler. That doesn't mean that Digdoug is going to be that Ruler. But yeah, seeing Sizemore run a side (and getting a ring from a certain Dirtmancer) would be interesting.
Sure, I just don't picture him giving away something of great sentimental value though.

Watching so much of the Dish Network turned him into a couch potato.

I could see him giving it back to it's original owner, who might still be alive but captured.

He will if he's dying or if it's pulled off his corpse.
