Should "overlud" be spelled "ovalud"?

Is the furry creature hamstard?

Jeftichew's got friends... more Carneymancers by the look of them.

No other decrypted have turned... yet.

And is that... a gobwin caster?



Look's like it to me... so natural allies could pop casters? The Spok we've seen would simply be some kind of elf? Could gobwin knob hire a gobwin caster to replenish it's gobwin ranks?
3 Naughtymancers of different disciplines walk into a bar... wait, forget what I just said. A shockmancer and a croakamancer walk into a bar.

Parson didn't say a thing about taking anyone with him, but will that stop Wanda from following?

Have we ever had a discussion about why only certain characters have pupils?

Yeah, she needs a hug, probably some painkillers and then some stress relief though.

Not recently that I recall. Wanda's apparantly the chosen one so there's that. Looking through Book Zero I've spotted a number of Faq Units with pupils, while all the Goodminton people seem to have them. Maybe it's just a thing for Units from certain Sides or Cities?

That would be Troy Barnes from Community (i think).

Rhyme-o-mancer, aka Childish Gambino, most probably.

Possible. But, I'd say the guy with the red cap, and white shirt with a red letter on it is probably a reference to Mighty Max

So... the shadowy figure with an apparently square head almost dead-centre in the middle of the large panel... Any ideas who or what?

Ooooooo this is good! (by which I mean exciting) I'm definitely worried about what Jeff is planning...Parson needs to GTFO really fast (though I expect the Predictamancers know this)
Also...I'm worried about Maggie, this is going pear-shaped for her as well. I don't think she needs to worry about Stanley as much as I originally thought...but the problem of her juice could create an issue :/
Zeku wrote:Have we ever had a discussion about why only certain characters have pupils?

It was discussed quite some time ago, and I believe there is a wiki page on it...but I don't believe there was a conclusion on that. I've never actually examined who has what kind of eyes, and I personally am inclined to chalk to up to art and Rob just wanting certain characters to look a certain way. But there's definitely a possibility it means something.

At least Wanda took Ossomer's desertion better than she reacted last time she lost control over someone.

Also, yay Parson. Let's get Spacerock settled!

Well to be fair, her reaction from Jillian was said to be in part/largely because of backlash associated from the spell breaking. Much like it seems a lot of Thinkamancy has backlash, case and point being tricaster links. But by the same token, it was definitely possible we'd see Wanda magically harmed by Ossomer turning. So I'm relieved that didn't happen, and she just seems emotionally "rattled"

or the groundhog could be a magical item that this predictamancer uses to channel his power.

Sizemore uses a shovel to channel his magic. Cubin used a hat.

Well Cubins HAS to use a Hat cus he's a Hat Magician, and the same may be true of Sizemore. Since Marie and Delphi haven't needed items to Predict, then I assume Predictamancers do no need them. But this is still a possibility I hadn't considered before :p

Someone said bland suit guy was Ash. Ash is a man, correct? If so, the suit is backwards for a man by American standards i.e. buttoned for a woman. I believe it's correct by European standards. I don't know enough Erfworld story to know much about Ash. When was he/she introduced and aligned?

I don't think they really need them; they seem really cosmetic to me. After all, can't someone have a pet? Their absence might cause some discomfort due to familiarity, though, and in this way possibly impair their owners' ability to cast, albeit in a roundabout manner.

I don't think casters have the same sort of race/theme/etc. restrictions that other units do. Although it's also possible there was once a 'gobwin' side the way Transylvito is a 'vampire' side.

I think Stanley was actually trying to say "fuck". I think this might hearken back to Parson successfully getting the curse out at the end of Book 1. I makes me wonder about that act, how Parson's vocal defiance to the laws of Erfworld might be reverberating throughout.

Could be focus items, maybe item they were spawn with... Maybe the groundhog is a thinkamancer and their both perma-linked together.

Again we don't have enough information. We know that Issac create a bunch of "tools" to help focus his trade. http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/ ... -02-02.png

it wouldn't suprise me if their was magic item like the staff of suckage that help increase someone magic skill

Something that looks interesting to me is this:

Parson and Wanda know that Ossomer turned. We know he's no longer a problem, because he dusted, but Wanda and Parson probably have no idea what his status is now. They will probably make decisions based off what they think he's capable of, only to realize later that he's dead. I wonder if that will be a problem.
