Well, that was lolworthy. Interesting to see how much Sizemore can accomplish without attracting attention.

You have a predicamancer and a grand abbey hippymancer, at least one of whom knows what you are trying to do, and they are willing to provide you cover for it, good work sizemore!

Yeah pretty impressive, especially that it's a fairly elaborate tunnel, and he left the grass over the opening so Parson will just fall in but others can't see it ahead of time.

We know he gained 2 levels in TBFGK, at what level do you become "Master Class"?

I think master class refers to magical knowledge not actual level, though "chief whatever-mancer" refers to the highest level caster on the side.

I'm curious as to what the well looking thing is under the portal. Some sort of juice reservoir perhaps? Portal fuel?

Dear god what kind of mancer could Manhattan be? I'd say retconjuration but there are no such mancers i believe... Changamancy perhaps? possibly predictamancy...

Jeannie from I dream of Jeannie?

Also, it appears that my guess on Marie Laveau as the influence was correct. Funny to change her last name to Lavraie (La vraie is french feminine for something that is true. Like the true cross for example, La vraie croix. Unless there is a subject attached to it it doesn't work though as truth is masculine in its raw form "Le vrai")

All I have to say is "Thank you so much, Rob and Xin! That was beautiful!"

And I like the fossils shown in the cutaway.

So... did the entrance change? Or is the portal placement an art thing?

For example, Portal Park, at the beginning of Book 1 looks like it does now. But when Parson himself entered, it looked like the portal was between the two monuments. Which is what it looks like when Parson leaves too.

So... why does the layout of Portal Park keep changing?

I would assume as capitol sites change, so do the positioning and number of present portals...

Awesome, another update. That was sooner than I expected. What a delightful surprise.

Is the fossil a cubone skull, or does it just look like one?

"Mind the gap."

Nice touch there. For those who don't recognize that, its a warning listed in all London subways to keep you from falling into the train tunnel. :geek:

Bwahahaha!!! Sizemore's awesome. I love this page.

BTW, Rob, Xin, don't worry about the books being delayed. I'm happy to be supporting Erfworld with my measly $3 per month, and I'll reap the physical rewards whenever they happen to be available. Honestly, if you guys were asking $3+ a month just to read Erfworld online with no store credit or anything, I'd still pay it. :-) Erfworld is the best thing in the entire comic/manga industry right now. The fact that my small donations will eventually result in a physical book showing up is just a bonus.

This reminds me more of the book 1 style than anything that came before.

I'm not saying that's good or bad, it's just noteworthy. Fast, functional art.

Edit: Girl on the left in panel 3 looks like Celes, ff6.

Also, Is that Dr.Strange's red cloak I spy in Panel 9? Along with The Wicked Witch in same panel? (Bottom left corner).

On a totally seperate note, Sizemore is the win.

We just figured out something important. The predictamancer of FAQ is, without doubt, Marie.

Edit: Yup. Oh well, I hadn't completely connected yet. Even though that one was particularly straightforward.
