    Default Erfworld Thread VII: No Consensus, Left Unsealed

    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.

    I have to admit that the latest arc has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster for me.

    I'm cheesed off the Wednesday stories have stalled.

    Also I didn't enjoy the latest sojurn in the Magic Kingdom. However it has got better with the collide-o-scope and the prospects of a direct interaction with Transylvito.
    Ever wondered how many games are mentioned in the comic? I have listed them all in a geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2...es-order-stick

    I felt the story lingered a bit too long on the MK. It's moving along now in a decent direction.

    Isn't there a rule that Parson has to spend so many pages just standing around in front of portals?

    Portals are visually interesting, a clear setting identifier, a symbol of narrative choice, and, most importantly, easy to draw.

    I'm interested to see if and what the charlie interaction will be with Transylvito. Also how the gun will add to things. I regret the loss of the Wednesday stories as well.

    So this is the new thread?

    The end of what Son? The story? There is no end. There's just the point where the storytellers stop talking.

    The thread stepped through a portal as it desperately needed to go to the toilet and is now being held prisoner by a bunch of blood-sucking janitors.

    The next thread may well be VIIInnie, VIIIdi, VIIIci, depending on timing and current comic activity. Vinnie himself is off at Faq at the moment, isn't he?

    The trope was too stretched (both literally and metaphorically). The consensus of no consensus was just too perfect to pass up, and it doesn't require significant involvement of a character that hasn't appeared in a while whereas this was right in front of us. I realize the timing is crucial, but as for me, the extra "I" sealed the name of this thread. Ironic (?) that the thread name came down to the wire just like in the comic :)?

    EDIT: Wombat, page 50 came and it was getting pretty intense. In situations like that, people may not remember your request to post the OP.

    They used to post a text page with a picture or handful of pictures in it on Wednesdays and full comic pages on Monday and Friday. They stopped a bit ago. Maybe weeks or months, not sure.

    Nah. We'll just name it after some random meaningless quote from the comic. Like always.

    Yeah, writing Rhymomancy doesn't rake enough Shmuckers. Also March Hamstard update is late.

    For Everybody - Hamstard.com will be reborn, with new Hamstard comics by Parson Gotti posted weekly, and we will partially redesign the website (declutter, add resources for new users, and optimize for mobile)

    Well. Can't say that actually tells us a whole lot other than Stanley knows what's going on sort of. Not much else to this update really. Sorta hoping we'd see some of the Vampire's side of things.

    Well, "No consensus..." remains a nice title, so it works pretty well.

    Pends on what's available.

    As for the comic, I like to see Charlie crying, but I have a speculation that he may say it's because he lost "beloved archons" while the truth is something else.

    Pity about all those units left un decrypted. Still, I look forward to seeing Jojo run out on a rail.
