Am I the only one who suspects that Cryptolemy’s unsatisfying conversation with a Hippiemancer/Signamancer that’s been irking his brain ever since was with Noah?


The page introducing Cryptolemy gave Noah's name as the Date-a-mancer he spoke with.

Indeed -- this page, right under Cryptolemy's dashing portrait.

I'm still holding my breath for a big surprise on how Cryptolemy will react to seeing Noah out here on the arse end of nowhere after a total reaming on a trip to what's supposed to be uncharted territory. (And Noah's reaction could be equally risky.)
The big question is whether Cryptolemy will meet a terrible fate at the hands of Noah's pets before or after he succeeds in stealing the secrets of Nestly and selling them to Charlie. In any event Archezoa is about to become a player in Erfworld again, willingly or not.

...nah, but seriously -- Noah holds all the cards here. Fortunately, what we've seen of him has got to put him in the top 5 (if not top 2) compassionate units in all of Erfworld. I hadn't considered his contract-making skills, but I really hope he uses them. I'd like to see how a non-Charlie commands obedience, preferably without killing anyone.


Noah is the anti-Charlie: poor, compassionate, physically fit, and mentally sober. Yet they both have impressive skills in Signamancy and communication, which could be key in the final war for peace on erf.
Bucking fate seems to be very hard in this world. And yet, people try.

Also both have opposite opinions on turnamancy. Sounds like the ideal protagonist.

It's kind of an interesting test of how well characters understand fate and the generally "rigged" nature of Erfworld. Cryptolemy seems to have a good grasp of predictamancy, but how's the already rattled guy going to react when this bit of unexpected fate gets shoved in his face?
Yeah, a big part of this Mathamancy-Astrology thing seems to be knowing when your Number's up.

Well, if Noah's willing to spare no expense, he might have himself a new head of security

In this sea, you're either bucking fate or _ucking _ait.
