Wow, I don't think I've ever gotten a first post here before. Um, not really much to say except that it's nice to hear what the Twoll is supposed to sound like.

Haha, I've never seen figs irl either, both dried and fresh. And somehow the Russian-ish accent fits the Zhopa pretty well

In case this hasn't been mentioned before, "Zhopa" is Russian slang for hindquarters.

Also, there's quite a bit of skipping around the timeline happening recently. Is it just filler, or will it all tie together later? Of course it could just be character development.

It has already been tied together. This isn't a new update; it's just a new presentation of a Summer Update that we've already seen. (You can see it in context here: Summer Update 23). I wonder if there is a plan to redo all of the Summer Updates in the format of the Epilogues, or if it's just a select few.

Just go back to the comic and scroll down a bit more. It was explained pretty good there.

I love that accent. Perfect.

HA! Love that the livery is emblazened in his chest hair since he doesn't wear a uniform.

Great update. Love the voice. And the hair.

Fresh figs are great, and they are quite nice dried too. I haven't had a fig newton since I was a kid...

I noticed the chest hair too and had a quick laugh, nice detail on Zhopa.

Yeah, but you'll notice the people pointing it out have 10 or under posts. It's unlikely they were around to discuss and dissect the images the first time around, so they didn't notice it until now. And it is a nice touch.

I'll admit. When I first saw Zhoppa's chest design I thought.. "Why is Zhoppa breastfeeding Stanley?"

So the trolls are supposed to be russian? Well that's good news. This is like the longest epilogue ever.
I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

Because of posts like this, the redux page probably shouldn't stick around in the archive very long. The sudden flashback is only explained in the accompanying news post, and otherwise makes no sense.

The artwork is indeed lovely. Thank you Rob and Xin!

I'm not sure what else to say. I'm saddened Xin had to leave, but she left on a high note. Better to stop when your audience wants more than when they don't.

I love how Jamie, Xin and David are all able to add their own flavor and yet it is all still very much Erfworld.
