So we have Stanley who is attuned to the Hammer, Wanda who is attuned to the Pliers, and Charlie who is attuned to the Dish. It has been hinted that Jillian will attune to the Shoes.

To me to me, I always imagined that the story will end with Parson talking to the Titans themselves, but I just had a new thought. Parson is a gamer and a creator. It made his own system and his own game. The Battle for Gobwin Knob was disconcertingly similar to his game back home. Since reading the idea on TV Tropes, I think Parson who make a killing if he sold his game designs. But that's the thing, though isn't it? Parson can make a game. He would be considered a Titan within his created world wouldn't he?

Maybe I have the ending all wrong. Maybe Roger's fear of Parson attuning to the Dish is a bit optimist. Maybe he will attune to ALL the tools? Can you imagine? You would become a Titan, himself, able to shape the world in his image. He could make it into another Earth or he can make everlasting peace possible at last and why couldn't he with power like that? Hell, the easiest, most direct thing to do would be to combine the power of the Dish and Hammer to kill everyone on Erfworld by zapping them all. This would be similar to the Great Minds cutting strings at a distance. Then he could combine the power of the Pliers, the Dish, and the Shoes with the Hammer which use Turnamancy and Carnymancy respectively that could break the "can only cast decyption within one hex" rule. I don't see him doing that, but it's one option. Everyone would be on one side and no one would need upkeep to survive.

My most vivid image comes in with Wanda, Jillian, Charlie, and Stanley being dead and Parson decrypting them all in one room. Imagine each of their thoughts and feelings at that moment to see a Titan walk among them.



But hell, maybe I'm wrong, but it's a wonderful idea.

    As a black belt in Hamster-Fu, Parson's hands and feet are legally classified as Arkentools. He had to declare them at the inter-universal security check before the Titans let him teleport in. True story, man.

    It is true. That's why he is kneeling on the ground by the time he is finished plotting in: The Titans were doing a security search on Parson for foreign contraband.

    The idea being that Erfworld was left incomplete and Parson has to make a new Tool to finish it?

    Erfworld is broken at the core, Parson has to break it down for parts before he can cobble together a workable system (in which all units have personal agency, and endless war is not necessary for survival).

    Enter...the Arken-saw. We knew it was coming eventually...

    All you powers combines. Plier, Hammer, Shoes, Dish, and Saw combine to form Captain Erf!
