Noah reminds me of a better-nourished Ben Gunn from Treasure Island.


Got any cheese, perhaps?

FYI, regarding "there was a name for it, the railing of a boat": the Stupidworld name for that railing is "gunwale". Something tells me we'll never find out the Erfworld name for it.

They probably spell it like it sounds: "gunnel."

[The] edges along the top of the ship were “gunwales” (pronounced “GUN-els” so as not to be confused with gun whales, one of the many types of sea monsters they might encounter out here).
I am amused that before he became Fumo the Free, he had to become Fumo the Flambé. Let's find out if Noah and Atlanta are worth going through fire and water for...

(Who the Hellabad is Cryptolemy supposed to be based on, anyway?)

Dennis Nedry; Newman's character in Jurassic Park. I can't take credit for that, though; someone pointed it out in the thread two updates ago. I think his panel in that update is referencing the scene where Nedry emerges from the embryo fridge looking all paranoid, but I can't find a good image or clip of it online.

Edit: ninja'd, of course.


Is this the scene you're thinking of?

The whale breaching in the background is a nice touch :)
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.

"What you're after... in the Numbers... that doesn't have the qualities you expect," said the man, whose name was Noah Moore.
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.
