Rob has stated at some time that Book 0 is 2/3 done. Which means a third part.

Also in the current dispatch of Erfworld News:
We are not going to start the final part of Book 0 until Xin has finished all the bonus art for Book 2.

Thanks to drachefly who clarified my current outstanding - I'm offering up to 20q that Stanley is the perspective of Part 3 of Book 0.

Ha..no wonder you're ahead in the stakes with that strategy. Stanley's one character in ..how many ? 20 ? So Wih has a possible 1 in 20 of doubling his money whereas you've got 19 in 20 ... no wonder you took the lot.

At least back a runner if you're going for the pot....not the rest of the race.

Um... no? wih made the bet, I accepted it, that's how it works.

Besides, there are only a handful of people who could be the central character of a story told of the fall of Faq, as so few lived to tell of it.

I think the bet is far fairer than many I've taken.

We could start a pool, but I wouldn't want to put my q on anyone other than Stanley except at good odds, as mentioned above.

I wouldn't be particularly surprised if it was Sizemore, Maggie or even Misty. Stanley just fits the best.

I bet 10q that Misty is the focus of Episode 82 of Book 0. I bet another 10q that the focus of Episode 82 is a caster.

It's not that I think Misty is likely. I agree that Stanley is more likely, but I would love to see Misty as the focus. The perspective of a Lookamancer must be fascinating, and Stanley would have a hard time teaching us anything about magic. Plus, Stanley's perspective is always a bit odd.

I'll bite on the first one.

Lilwik, I strongly suggest you start employing uneven odds. One those bets are very uneven in quality. Which is to say, an even bet on the viewpoint being Misty is a terrible bet.

I am betting Charlie has golems that mimic archons. 10 q per person willing to take me up on it, even odds, up to 6 takers.

I'll take that, providing that the bet is resolved when we see a large number of cloth golems that are not Archon mimics. Otherwise, no way to know.

I'm in on that too.

0beron (zero) bet sixty 10q that the reason Jillian was called back to court is directly related to Wanda or Olive (not just Haffaton in general). (this bet is not to be called until the end of Book 0) (but it's really looking like a win for sixty)


0beron, it's not the end of Book 0, but it is the end of Book 0 part 2. Enough?

I will take a nibble at that.

I bet 10q that within 10 pages of Sizemore making Master Class Dirtomancer he will turn away from Parson. That is ten pages before or after.
T'was a splendidly speedy defection.

I'm going to need more clarification what you mean by 'turn away from', spriteless, before I let that bet go up.

I mean Sizemore will turn barbarian, change sides, or try to croak Parson. He's already turned away from friendship.

That's the strongest possible claim, so I don't see bladestorm having any basis to reject it on those grounds. Adding it.
