Woot, first page!

I must admit, I was not expecting that to happen.

Where did Maggie get the dust?! Also, about time somebody did something to calm down Stanley.
‘But I don’t want to go among mad people.’Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’said the Cat, ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,' said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.'

I can just imagine what is going on in Maggie's head right now. The whole loyalty thing and doing what is best for Stanly the Tool.

This must have been difficult to reason out in a mind like Maggie's. Or maybe not since in her mind Parson was always the one to have for chief warlord. But to actually cast a suggestion spell on her Overlord sounds like loyalty bells ringing.


edit: very clever haha. nice one.

No no, don't you get it? She didn't just cast it on him because she felt it would be best - a spell like that on one's superior would strain even the bounds of Loyalty.

"May I give you a suggestion, Lord?"

The crafty little boop got permission from him to put a suggestion on him! That was probably the single craftiest, cleverest, most underhanded move in the entire Erfworld conflict to date!

(Also, the smug look on Maggie's face on the last panel was excellent.)

I don't care what kind of laughter it is; if it comes from the DM, it's bad news.

Loved the last bit!

Well this might help rein in Wanda since she'll actually have to follow orders from the Chief Warlord now.

I was actually thinking they'd appoint Jack possibly, going with the theme of Stanley likes him.

Suggestion ftw! Well played, Maggie.

Note to self--be very careful when the Thinkmancer makes the casual offer of a "suggestion".

Surprise - I didn't think such an action from Maggie would be possible.

The whole topic about "free will", duty and loyalty on Erf is raised again now...

Also, the first time we see Stanley being nice and considerate towards his underlings 8-)

LOLWUT indeed. I wasn't expecting this much underhanded sneakiness from Maggie. Then again, I'm sure no one did.

What the?...

Where did Maggie get the hypno powder from? Is that from Wanda's stash? Did she get it from the magic kingdom?

That was unexpected.

*Edit*

I just realized that my idea earlier of a GK deal with Charlie might actually be feasible if Parson is in control!

She's a thinkamancer. It sort of comes with the package you'd assume.

That put a smile on my face.

As someone stated already, Maggie asking permission to make a suggestion :D lolwut indeed

I don't think Maggie has much loyalty left to Stanley however, going back to the summer updates when she flipped out on him when he removed Parson from the Chief Warlord roll. I think she has more loyalty to Parson than anybody.

Lolwut?

Awesome to see Parson back in charge as he should be. Now we just need to wait for something else to insanely wrong and we might see some crazy tactics in play again.

It's probably just from playing a certain game too much, but I couldn't help but think.

Parson is assuming direct control!

That's a bit worrying, considering what Parson said on page 28.

http://www.erfworld.com/2010/04/book-2-%E2%80%93-page-28/ (Edit: Temp link that would have broken with next update made permanent. Thx SteveMB)

Wasn't Maggie paying attention? What's she up to?
