    Default Erfworld Thread III: As the Erf Turns

    Erfworld is an online comic about a table top gamer named Parson Gotti that is summoned from our world to the world of Erf, a world based on its own rules that fumction similarly to a table top game. This makes Parson a valuable player in a game that may very well threaten his life. Does he want to go back to his own world at all? Is he really dreaming? Who knows! What we do know is that in this world, the pieces are living things, and the stakes cannot be higher. Join Parson on this wild ride filled with real world references and puns, gaming references and glory, fate and chance.

    Previous incarnations:
    GitP: Erfworld Forum section (Locked)
    Erf thread I
    Erf thread II

    Currently we are finished the 2nd Inner Peace storyline, and in the Epilogue of Book 2 (page 23).

    Also, please SPOILER your comments about an update that has occurred within a day or two, or at least until someone posts that there is a new update, so someone doesn't get a spoiled page.

    Putting in a vote for Epilogjam.

    On today's, it seems like every book ends with Sizemore glaring at Parson. No Janis to talk him down this time, though...
    Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if, when he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?

    To be fair the two books end with Parson destroying something pretty major. Book 1 was the Volcano Apocalypse, Book 2 Was the Magic Kingdom's Neutrality. With Sizemore being pretty much a pacifist (As much as one can BE in erfworld) it is understandable that he gets pissed at Parson's "Exploits".

    Voting for Epilog(n), again, just to make sure the vote is counted.

    So, who wants to be that Sizemore will, at some point, commit treason/switch sides?

    I read all the Giantitp stuff but the rest seems to be interspersed with not-comic, which is weird. Any way to just see comics, or is part*of the story simply words? And congrats new thread.

    It's this. The text updates range from Erf trivia and backstory about the game system underlying everything to actual updates that just happen not to be illustrated. The creative team has recurring troubles in being able to generate full comics pages quickly enough to satisfy the update schedule they were originally supposed to have, hence text updates. (And now we just kind of accept that the update schedule is 'whenever something gets put up.')

    Some of the text updates will be made into a novel when they are done, as well. You simply can't ignore text updates if you are going to continue reading after the first novel.

    Plus, with this whole youtube update thing going on, there might not even BE a graphic novel that takes place for book 3. Yea, I know that they are only supposed to be for the epilogue but that is how the whole text update thing started too and look how that took off.

    Nothing would surprise me, in regards to Erfworld. This story is definitely the most non-traditional of all the webcomics I have favorited. Anyone that values media consistency will be sorely disappointed while reading this. Heck, we can't even have art constancy. Every book we get starts with a new artist.

    Plus, there is that kickstarter Rob did that completely flopped. 84k raised for no gain. No motion comic, no updated website, no soundtrack album.

    No denying this is one troubled project. I'm frankly amazed that Rob's managed to do as well as he has on his second kickstarter. Although, even that isn't enough, since he's going to be launching a third sometime soonish. That doesn't even mention the money he gets every month from subscribers. The fanbase is strong in this one.

    Also, YAY, my original Erfworld thread has been linked this time around.

    You are quite welcome.

    @ Everyone. I only see one vote for two things. As for Epilog(n), what is the pun or reference here? I don't recognize it, and may like it more if I did.

    I try to get back into this a few times a year, but "incoherent" is the word of the everything with this intellectual property. Ugh. I hop back, decide that I guess I can handle jumping between comic and pure text - though I really prefer going purely one way or the other when trying to follow a narrative - and what is this YouTube crap?

    EDIT: I see they're just narrated versions, at least. But wow, this is an art downgrade...

    I am throwing in for "Faster Than The Comic" and "Epilog(n)". Both are fitting.
    78% of all DM's start their first campaign in a tavern. If you're among the 22% who didn't, copy and paste this into your signature and tell us where you DID begin.The players were attacked individually on the road on the way to town by werewolves. To survive, they had to team up then and there without knowing anything about eachother (literally -- all character sheets were completed without other players' knowledge).

    In my posts, smilies generally correspond to my expression at the time. As an example, means "huh?" and "Hmm..". Also, "Landis" is fine.

    Looks like we're keeping it with what it is! Much obliged, folks! Now, lets talk Erfworld. Wonder what the next update will be. It seems as inner peace part 2 is done, we're waiting on the epilogue for book 2 to be done. How many updates did he say would be in the epilogue?

    Let's talk about this kickstarter post
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...a/posts/645342

    As I warned you, the next project is coming up. The goal will be to fund the printing of Book 2 and the illustration of Book 3 by David Hahn. It'll be an ambitious goal, and we need to hit it for Erfworld to go anywhere from here. You've all come through for us so brilliantly, and I am counting on your continued support.
    Is he saying that we need to have another kickstarter before they can do book 3?

    We might be going at this epilogue for a while....
