* Bogrolls death. Parson basically goes on RoaringRampageOfRevenge upon hearing that he croaked, in form of destroying ''everything'' on the city, except location where remaining Gobwin Knob forces are located.

* A subtle one, but poignant when one takes the Summer Updates into account: in the most recent update (as of 3/6/11) a portrait of a lady we have not seen before is visible over Don King's shoulder. Instead of being an obvious [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Transilvitian]], however, she has red hair, skin that isn't grey, and dresses in orange as opposed to the normal monochrome of Transylvito. Conclusion? [[FridgeBrilliance This was Queen Bea of Unaroyal, a close friend of Don's who disbanded herself and her entire side when Wanda beat down the door.]] This is in a panel where Don tries to convince his Moneymancer accountant to be true to her ideals in vain.

!Book 3

*[[http://archives.erfworld.com/Book+2/224 Bunny's Rhymeamancy, particularly the first two stanzas.]] Don King has had to watch his two closest friends die at the hands of an encroaching horde that he can do nothing to stop. His side is crumbling under the weight of its repeated failures and internal struggles. The ally he had hoped to prop into a new and powerful friend betrayed him. Don King is a broken man.

* As Spacerock burns around them, Antium and his two surviving subordinates, already injured, struggle heroically to save [[spoiler:Parson's]] life, worsening their burns in the process and managing to push him to safety through the reopened portal. That done, they know themselves trapped in the inferno, [[note]]Noncaster units will croak if they go through a portal, with the notable exception (maybe) of Parson[[/note]] and as they wait to croak, Antium holds his two frightened men close. [[spoiler:Sizemore comes through with a BigDamnHeroes moment shortly, luckily.]]
-->'''Antium''': Hold fast. Our Duty's done now.

* Wanda's father promotes her to Overlord to preserve their Side, which is under attack while she's away. Her new "Ruler Senses" allow her to know when each unit back home croaks.

One.

One.One.
** [[FridgeLogic Even worse]] when you consider that an heir doesn't gain those ruler senses until they're promoted to overlord, which only happens when the previous overlord dies. Meaning that her father used his dying breath to make Wanda his heir.

* The second to last panel of [[http://archives.erfworld.com/Book+2/152 this page]] is a very subtle moment. If you look closely you can see that Ossomer's eyes are red rimmed - meaning that the anguish he's been feeling at having been turned away from the home and ideals he still loves was so great that even [[TheStoic he]] [[ManlyTears couldn't contain it.]]

* There is something just a little disturbing about Antium's [[spoiler: first death]].

* Stanley isn't what you call a nice guy and he isn't the most mature, but he's smarter than he looks. It's a little odd to see him doubt Wanda and, a little sad, when he [[http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/?px=%2F2010-07-16.png starts telling himself]] that Wanda didn't try to set him up and get him killed in the attack on Faq. Of course, the [[DramaticIrony audience knows]] that she did try to get him killed and she really doesn't give a rat's ass about him at all. She's just interested in his attunement. Given what he was saying in previous strips, it's obviously been bugging him for a long while.
