Wow 22 pages. TL;DR but my take away:

1) Parson was able to enter into a 3 way linkup, further verifying his status as a caster
2) Speculation was always that Parson was a signamancer (subsect of hippymancy)
3) In a 3 way linkup with a master class foolamancer, Parson as a signamancer could have triggered the success condition of the contract using a linked up spell.

I'm sorry, but I can no longer remain silent about this crime.

Jed's drinks are so watered down now they might as well be Slurpees. I am posting this negative review to make sure all other Tools and Tools-to-be note my displeasure.

That is all. :twisted:

Slupees are not watered down. They are practically pure sugar which is the opposite of being watered down.

It is more like ordering a Gin and Tonic, but without the Gin and the Carbon.

And yes as a tool I think we do need to give Jed a bad review here.


You folks are being too hard on Jed. He's just gotten health-conscious in order to prevent his side's units from taking damage from a really bad hang-over.

If he's over-reacting a bit, it's only because historically his city's residents have been 'stoners.

Point 1) Roger states that his advanced knowledge of thinkamancy allows him to link/fuse with a warlords.
Point 2) that was brought up in-comic I believe, and immediately shot down.
Point 3) He used powers signamancers don’t have to fulfill one side of contract he doesn’t really know about involving 2 sides he isn’t a unit of?
Well, damn. I was wrong *snif*

I'm used to it, tho...

I see so much effort to explain Parson's reappearance. String theory, donut universes, llamas (I made that one up)...

Holy shit, I think it's a colossal universe joke..

The scroll would send Parson *home*

"Home is where the heart is" - Erfworld *IS* home, now...

Parson was able to link with the other two due to the Carnamancy of the scroll. He had to start casting it before he could join the link. Roger even said, "Once you've begun to cast the spell, I'm sure I could link up with you." It was the scroll that provided the opportunity, not Roger.

22 pages in and I can't believe nobody has said this yet: the scroll sent Parson "home" and since he now thinks of Erfworld as his home it sent hime Hoem omggGGG

Sooooo... help me out here. Did you seriously not read any of the 22 pages, since that's particular theory has been on almost every one, or are you being sarcastic? Even with the eye roll, it's hard to tell.

No no, totally a joke. I guess it was funnier in the moment, after slogging through so many pages of the same "revelation."
Wow. Someone must like Parson or hate Charlie. Or both.
Is it just me, Or does this feel like the start of Book 5?
Saw that coming. Like the Arkenshoes, the spell probably sends you "home", which is GK for Parson now.
