    Default Erfworld Thread VIII: VIIInnie, VIIIdi, VIIIci

    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'd hold my horses. Parson knows some aspect of that story are wrong. Charlie didn't exactly steal the Arkentool and come down to Erf in so much as existed (or fell) killed previous owners and took it from them. I wonder why he skipped that little detail Oh, right, most of their forces are Uncroaked. Plus there is the whole oath to Thinkamancers preventing him from telling the whole truth.

    Parson may suspect that Charlie is an Stupidworlder that came to Erf, but then he'd refer to himself as Titan.

    I 'm aware of that.
    Imo Parson thought about it and knows the theory it's far from perfect, but it got sufficient elements to be believable and to be sold to TV.
    I'm just happy that my hypothesis about the fallen Angel was "right ", in the sense that was the one developed by Parson.

    Looks like Bunny will be the crucial piece here. She seems aware that Parson isn't telling the truth, but can't act because of the spells on her.

    An abridged series would be funny. Unfortunately I think it would only be like 10 comics long.

    I was just making a tongue in cheek comment about all the filler. An abridged series wouldn't sit in front of a portal for 120 comics or however many we're currently up to.

    Sure it would, that's the easy part. It'd just make Parson ridiculously pissed about how long it was taking.

    "I'VE BEEN STANDING HERE FOR LIKE A YEAR DAMMIT"
    "Lord, it's been 6 minutes."
    "SHUT IT I'M GOING THROUGH"

    The hard part about abridging Erfworld is the fact that the comic's premise is built so heavily on the surreal never-ending barrage of puns and in-jokes, which cuts out half of what makes Abridged series work in the first place.

    Any second now....

    It does foreshadows that Chatlie will attack. TV wants to give Hamster, and Maggie just had a juice boost.

    Thoughts on New Page:

    Can Jed be made String independent? I don't want him to become a dumb object if his three creators croaked.

    Does this mean the Titans are still alive out there somewhere and if they die all the characters in Erfworld will lose their consciousness?

    If Maggie and Jed can contact each other through these umbilical strings between them maybe Maggie could find the strings connecting her to the Titans!

    I noticed it by accident. Thought it was the artist signature, but nope. XD

    Okay update. Could do without the thread technobable and focus on the conversation Maggie had with Bunny. That was the more interesting part to me.

    Next comic:

    "What, you have to be commanded to call me? You can't just call your own mother on your own? I guess you were just too busy chatting up bikini-wearing Archons to think of your poor mother locked up in a dungeon! Is that the sort of son I made?"

    (And Jed had two fathers. I don't know what I want to say about that.)

    Nah, we're due for a perspective change. We've had comics with Maggie in them twice in a row! That's twice as long as a normal viewpoint these days.
