And no text update...
What is happening with Slately, Trem, the Jetstone casters, Warlord Greybrows, Oss - too much suspense!

Well, this is Erfworld, not real world - even the smartest characters can miss the complexities in Parson speak. I found it a bit creepy - "that's the spirit".

The guy talking? That's Issac (Newton) and his apparence is inspired by Carl Sagan - both pretty high ranking intellectuals. Or do you mean the judge? He looks familial but I can't place him for the life of me.
I'm also curious about the guy walking and talking in the last panel - is that Irenicus (of Baldur's Gate II fame?)
1. Marie's accent is beginning to bother me. I mean, Sizemore doesn't sound welsh, the Jetstones don't talk posh, and the transylvitans use a bit of slang but their speech is not skewed to either an italian or a central european stereotype.
I always figured there probably were accents in Erfworld - but everyone speaks English (so TV speaks Italian accented English, Jetstone speaks with a posh English or French accented English). Marie is just the first we have seen with very strong accented English.

And possibly to soon for Janis and co to totally burn their bridges with the Magic Kingdom - I pictured Issac as the Thinkmancer equivalent of Janis. It would have to be at least a bit of a tough battle to subdue them all.

She does not necessarily have to be Alyx Vance.
I guess, but she doesn't really look like Jade - no green jacket or hair band (or lipstick), dress style is fairly different - she looks a lot more like Alyx Vance to me (clothing wise it is a damn good match).
I would be very happy to see a Jade look alike pop up though (more love for under-appreciated games! Hopefully Raz pops up as a Thinkamancer).
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.
