Not a creature was stirring...
Given that Signamancy applies in Erfworld, and Hamstard's creator is now there, I wonder what magical effects could happen to Parson and to Hamstard as a result.
If Parson is slimming down a little, would Hamstard slim down too?
This is especially interesting considering Hamstard can be thought of as Parson's alter ego. His Jungian shadow, so to speak.
