    Default Erfworld thread V: Baddie Will Not Post In Thread

    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 function 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, or is this world the perfect place for a gamer such as himself? Is he really dreaming? Will he be there forever? 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 (or to the Erfworlders - Stupid World) references and puns, gaming homages and glory, fate and chance.

    Previous incarnations:

    Erfworld thread I
    Erfworld thread II: Finally thinking with portals, over a year later
    Erfworld thread III: As the Erf Turns
    Erfworld thread IV: In Memory of King Saline

    Currently we are on page 66 of Book 3, and update ?? of the Dylan & Thomas text story!

    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.

    Hello, new thread!

    In the end, you have a nice name, but nonetheless you should feel bad for Vinny...

    Why is it so important that Vinny have a thread named after him? I mean, sure, he is a cool character and all. But the only other character to get a thread named after him never actually appears in the comics.

    And again no Dylan & Thomas. A shame, those short stories are interesting. I like learning more about Erfworld and its rules.

    At least, there's the ending of The Siege of Palingrad fanfic. Interesting theory in it... I wonder if it will be included officially in Erfworld.

    Because he is awesome..also the last thread was a reference to a guy who was mentioned only a few times in passing.

    It is an Erfworld thread..we need to have all the puns.

    Anyway any bets where the next update will take us? MK, Faq, Spacerock, Charlie? Some other location? I hope we stay on the Great Minds plot for a while. There are several interesting things going on. What has Bunnie done? Will she help Parson? What was his plan again?

    Why thank you. I like to think of myself as more of a Gadfly. I do like how I weaved several layers of trolling into that sentence.

    My bet - the page ends with reveal that Parson i.e. Gobwin Knob is calling her in. That's my guess. To maximize cliffhanger potential..

    That went well. Parson really should teach his buddies from Gobwin Knob how to make friends. But he makes a good Point. It is better when the scariest Player on the table is not your enemy. And that last sentence could be a huge incentive for Bunny.

    It has already lost one 'm' going from French to English, let it keep its 'h'.

    Did you know? 'Homage' comes from French 'hommage' which derives from 'homme', meaning 'man'. A vassal would present his liege with the troops he would contribute to his liege's service, and this was the hommage. The meaning then changed into any token expression of respect instead of a contribution to military power, and now it has come to qualify blatant plagiarism :p

    Lets hope so. Depending on what happened in the past it might make things worse. Unless you meant the part about fighting Charlie. With that Parson can get everyone on Erf.

    She seems crossed at Parson. Also how does she know about Parson getting into enemy portals? Did Ben blabb?

    It's not a secret (everyone in the MK saw it). While she doesn't visit the MK herself, presumably word spread very quickly among GK's enemies, since it's something vital for all of them to know.

    To be fair, Parson did at least secure the other end of the portal through more conventional means before going through it.

    However, Parson did bring in corpses had them decrypted and effectively brought in a military force into the MK.

    aaaannnndddd he sent in a Tiny Golem through Charlie's portal..even if that did backfire.

    But securing the Portal from the MK-side is only reasonable since only a little while ago a City was invaded through one, meaning that the Magic Kingdom can't guarantee its own neutrality.

    I can't say anything to justify the Golem. Only that the "don't cross the Portal of an other Side" was already broken.

    Yeah, there are days I wonder if Parson's Fate of 'breaking Erfworld' is going to come about because he uses one exploit too many and the whole place crumbles to dust.
