I am also sorry for responding to your question about poisonous animals.
And I got moose o death's reference as well. I thought it quite humorous.
To stay on topic, I have a thought about loyalty. Everyone says it is an invisible unknownable stat but are sure it exists. What if it's not a stat at all but functions like real loyalty would on Earth but since everything else on Erf IS stat based everyone there assumes it too must be a stat? This was just something I wondered as I was reading the new posts so I obviously haven't put a huge amount of thought into it. I'm sure you could think of something to disprove.
It is an interesting point, I expect we'll see it play an important role in the future. It was raised in the past, as was the prospect of turning, but it never really came into play. I'll be interested to see when/if/who actually turns.
But that seems like a good a theory as any. And it seems like an understandable thing for erfworlders to think.

Maybe Parson was a fan of Buffy/Angel or any other show/movie that had vampire/living person relationships?
Not that being a fan of such story lines would necessary make one comfortable about being in a relationship with someone who might technically be some type of undead.
Oooo, beaten to the post.

I don't think it really applies, they are different from a naturally popped, living Erfworlder (there is a reason they are called decrypted after all), but they are certainly also very different from an uncroaked Erfworlder.

A fearsome forest unit? They could dwop off of gumps.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
