Pierce doesn't seem very pleased with the current situation. :-)

I wonder what the "tricky fooly stuff" will turn out to be.

I be happy! Gots mah Erf fix!! Now . . . which three lucky contestants get to play 'Say Hi! to the Archons!' Slately, maybe Pierce (who seems less than overjoyed at the prospect), and what Mystery Guest? And who's Elliott?

Yay! Artemis again! Soon she'll be on our side. ;)

Pierce is never pleased with the current situation.
"Do it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?

I did it thirty-five minutes ago.

That tower is shaking awfully hard. Slately is awfully near an edge with no railing.

I love that lack of sound was a sound effect. Three quiet is one of my favorites ever.

So Artemis did something after all. Good. I liked her. She had spunk. (Also, Slately is about to be the most bamf jetpack-helmet-lightsaber(purportedly)-caped king to ever fly out of a collapsing castle being attacked by Dwagons ridden by Decrypted. In Layman's terms, he's a king whose also a boba fett jedi knight fighting dragons ridden by zombies who are attacking his castle. There aren't WORDS for that kind of awesome.)

And the artwork is, as usual, above-and-beyond.

A transfer "crown" and robes, suggests that someone else will play king with help of foolomancy (to defend the real king), but how will any sort of foolomancy work against archons? Perhaps they are going to target the siege with hit and run to save tower and prince first, then get archons after, maggie being tied up in magic kingdom might buy enough time for archons not to forward info to the ground forces.

In theory there should be also be a race to carry the prince to the healomancer.

and another delay for parson on his short walk to jetstone.

dittomancer for one of the three makes a lot of sense, bonuses are all about the multipliers. do they have a healomancer?

You see the fellow in a jacket that looks like scrubs? He heals people. (He also carries a martini.)

Hmm, I wonder who Elliott is. A warlord? The mustached unipegataur? Lloyd the Dittomancer? An orly trainer of some sort?

Edit: Maybe the Dittomancer's name is Lloyd Elliott? I guess only time will tell.

The fact that Slately needs to ask an enemy unit what's going on suggests that the folks at the top of the tower don't know about Trammenis being incapacitated.

Forgive my ignorance. Who is the dude in panel 3 and 4 with the green jacket and the martini? He's not a "party like the end of times" mancer, is he?

Wow could Oss. be ready to turn? So we go back a bit but now how much longer till Parson makes it to Jetstone? Could Stately detect when Jack used the portal as that would tip Parson's hand. All this back and forth is setting up a big final showdown? Final question how long, as in time, has elapsed since the battle began? Back in book one after one hour the party in TV had gotten deadly serious are we near that point yet?
I came, I saw, I had fun!

Pierce, healomancer -- a homage to Hawkeye Pierce from the TV show M.A.S.H.

It's Three Quiet, but I'll admit that I don't get the reference either.

Anyway, nice update but I'd like to see things start resolving at some point. It's tiring when all the buildup leads to more buildup.

Three quiet is more quiet than two quiet (too quiet).

First time posting here, but I thought I'd try and solve a question I could answer

I'm 99% sure Elliott refers to the dittomancer.

Evidence:

1. The character is clearly based partly on "the Deadly Duplicator" from Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. http://harveybirdman.wikia.com/wiki/Professor_Elliott_Taggart_the_Deadly_Duplicator

2. He leaves with Pierce

Disagreements?
