Words in a line. All fanfic goes here, Erfworld or otherwise.

For some reason I never read this story, was probably intimidated by the backlog of posts. But after talking with you a lot more through Dave's game I decided to give your story a shot. And man, am I glad I did. The story is very well written and engaging. You do an excellent job of giving the reader a good reason to connect with every character. Just a top notch read. Also, like many of the fanfic here, you do an excellent job of "expanding" the rules of Erfworld. I hope Rob reads your story when he starts fleshing out more details about the game.

:mrgreen: Glad you enjoyed it. I just hope my interpretations of tge schools of magic come close to what will show up in the comic (carnymancy i got lucky on)

Also, might i recommend Imperial Destiny (see sig). Its scifi but might be entertaining

I really hope actual Changeamancy ends up like you describe it. Ever since Rob made that chane that said items were made by Changeamancers, everyone just assumes that's all they do. Your description of it is awesome and the way you have the Doctor describes the differences between Change and Carny is awesome.

Another great update. I've noticed that your corner of Erfworld seems to have a fair number of mechanical type units, whereas I don't think we've seen any in the comic proper. Is that intentional? Does this take place in a later time period that's more "industrial"?

I figure there's no problem with mechanical units. We have golems, that's pretty much the same thing, and we've seen siege engines before.

I have no problem with the decision, just wondering if it was a conscious choice to show a more industrial Erf.

Of course now I have to wonder, do the ICEY's have pilots?

I needed a unit for the job and they fit. They were designed/made by a changeamancer linking with a retconjurer, so pretty much anything is possible (and GroundRunner's craft and golem were made by unknown means, so they could just be simple golems or much more).

We also know that it is possible to combine living pilots with golems, as shown by the LekDa. The ICEY 130 is a similar concept, it has a pilot and gunner, typically popped with the vehicle, but they can be replaced for various reasons.

Another great update. I love Carnymancy, as a rule, and Tyrin's foe is developing into a great character. The old hole on the wall trick made me laugh.
