Yeah, I'm really sorry about the guys, but my interest in the comic had already been slowly and steadily decreasing since Book 2...

Hope things work out for them somehow, though.

[up]Same. I'm rather curious about why Toolbox / subscribed users got a full answer instead of the vague summary on the main page. Maybe it's something to keep them pledging or up their pledge?

What I sometimes do when a webcomic stops updating is just move their bookmark someplace else, and let it sit for months until I wonder if it's updated again and look for it. Erfworld had been kinda updating recently so I was hesitant to do that, but I think I have to to keep from getting any more disappointed. sad

I have a pop up RSS feed program on my laptop. It's a little intrusive, but it helps remind me when a comic I like on hiatus updates.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

Erfworld is one of my top favorite webcomics, and I have a lot of patience, so I'll wait. I havent pledged though, because I prefer to give a lot of money all at once, rather than a membership with small monthly fees. I do have one question, though- what exactly is a "rain or shine" pledge? It isnt mentioned on the tooshed webpage.

Normal pledges give money when there's an update. Rain or shine pledges give money at the scheduled update time even if they have to skip an update.

I love this background stuff. If scripture is a demonstrable lie, then that's going to deal a blow to the Royalist cause.

"online". It said "online". Very interesting...

Book 5, Prologue 23: Temple Tantrum

Okay, so now we finally get to the meat of the conflict. This comic wanders around like an amnesiac drunkard, but every now and again I'm reminded of why I like it.

Noticed a comment that makes some interesting points:

Also, this is more intriguing than the other towers because this tower seems to be Erfworld's Best Guess as to what Paige needs. And the tower is woefully, comically, unable to understand what she and Noah have achieved. In literal terms, in its inability to assess Noah's defensive arrangements, and in even more significant terms, how Paige has constructed a worldview that goes beyond Erfworld's limits, even while trapped inside it.

This tower might be technically correct from a wargame perspective, of suggesting things the side needs to win the wargame. But what it really illustrates is that it didn't come into being with any understanding of the fact that "inside a wargame" is a fundamentally stupid place to be, which Paige has come to understand by using Words/Language (which clearly come from outside Erfworld), to understand that there's more to life than the wargame.

It won't count as "meat" until we get back to Transylvito, but this is interesting stuff, nonetheless.

So fascinating. It really makes me want to go back and read previous installments in light of this new information.

That illustrates just how formidable a grand abbie signamancer can be. It would be very interesting to see him go up against Charlie.

"Define your alternative strategic paradigm." That's not hard at all: it's to maximize the probability of survival by avoiding conflict. "Winning", per se, isn't part of it.

Alliances. While Noah's network of friends seems like a great idea on paper, the comments section points out that this is basically how WWI started.

Given that Erf is in a state of constant ongoing war, that isn't going to change much. Calling in a favour like that is a big thing, what Noah describes there is the nuclear option that'd only happen in the case of an imminent complete collapse. For other Hippies, working for bigger sides, such a thing would also be a rarity - sides lose and gain bites out of each other all the time, so such reinforcements would only get called in case of a catastrophe and only if the mancer in question is super attached to the side's existence (and if they aren't, they'd just pop back to MK rather than causing a stir).
