The good news: Monday is just 3 days away and weekends pass relatively fast.
The bad news: Monday can't come any sooner than that.


An impeccable summation of the current situation.
To change the topic a little bit, has anyone else noticed that the comic is showing Maggie taking a bit more of a lead in the trimancer linkups this book vs. book 1? I don't know if this is a writing difference, or something she learned from the Great Minds in the Magic Kingdom, but it's interesting.

She seems like she's always taken the lead.

I meant in the trimancer link. She gives them an intro, and then it's pretty much Sizemore and Wanda going at it, though there probably isn't all that much of a difference

I think she's being a moderator here, not necessarily a leader. Even with the link tamping down on individuality, Sizemore was still against the Tower Golem and Ace now realized why. She may not do much above the hosting, but reminding them about their orders kept them focused and unified and moving forward. It's because of that reminder that they'll try the spell at all and learn something new, even if it's just how to make a spectacular failure. ;)

I'd rather see what Caesar is getting up to.


Same- but we can get the reveal of this first and THEN go to Caesar. I hate unnecessary cliffhangers.

Could definitely use Caesar or Vinnie sooner rather than later, though. The most interesting plot thread in Erfworld at the moment.
That's mainly because there's a large number of miniplots going on at the same time, and the more interesting one (Tööl röcking yöu) ended rather anticlimactically.
Well, it's been almost five years since my prediction, but at least now Parson and Sizemore finally made something with a Tower. (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1715&start=40#p39313). Yay, a Moai.

The discussion on the previous pages about how there's no Matter on the Tower, just Stuff, is very interesting. I don't think it will work as the Giant Robot Parson expected, because as Sizemore pointed the Tower is a core structure of the City. And frankly, Oz's Tin Man is pretty ugly and monstrous by itself.

My guess is that, beyond giving the city awareness, of itself and probably of all the units inside it, by turning the Garrisson Tower into a Golem, it's now also able to engage ground based units with its stored spells. Add the Ankenhammer's control of lighting to store an huge amount of charges as we saw with DigDoug, and it can be pretty devastating.

And since the Knights In Stanley Service sold themselves to THE MAN, Stanley's ego needed a good Boost, so i can see him using the Arkenhammer to give this BUST enough power to wreck things, just add a complementary set of Stanley's Rangers.

On a lesser note, maybe Parson can substitute his routine of walking around the City to inspect the stores to instead Command the City to do those tasks?

It's very likely they have another commander doing this right now, given they have quite a few Warlords at Spacerock.

Still, not a bad idea. If improvements can be made to the City's automation and it frees up a commander to lead another stack during battles... every bit helps, you know.
