    Jack is certainly turning out to be quite the wild card! Very excited to see the updates coming after these she-Van-agans

    So Jack knows. And Maggie knows. He's already decided not to stop it.

    I wonder what Maggie will do, and weather Bill still fits anywhere into this plan...

    Oh wow. Nice development, nice Jack perspective.

    But...

    Why are we seeing this now? It's an old message. Is it just playing out the last message in the stack again, now that it's been called to action?

    Curious.

    Maggie now knows that at least one Great Mind is an enemy. I imagine this will tarnish her view of the lot of them.

    Oh, and Parson's participating in his first caster link. Should be interesting to see the result of that.

    It's been a long slow burn but I think things are about to explode into action again.

    In all seriousness, great update. Nice to hear from Jack. And once again a character makes a decision which is entirely rational from his point of view and has the potential to screw up everything..

    The amount of 'If only x did y instead of z' keeps rising every update. Now we are left with the mother of all cliffhangers.

    Will Jack decide to act? Will Jack decide to act in time? Will Fate intervene? Will Vanna's and Roger's gambit suceed after all?

    Find out in the next update of Erfworld. Maybe. ;)

    @ Rob, thanks for the update, have a as nice as possible under the circumstances holiday season.

    In choosing to follow Vanna, I think he's hit the... Jackpot. ;)

    OT: It's a shame he's got such a low opinion of his performance. I mean, he did save Stanley at the pass and Wanda in the fall to the Atrium of Spacerock.

    Still, wow, the way he puts it Jack has been off his game. Also, nice way to explain why Jack wasn't in Faq the city when it fell, he fell from grace and was saved from falling with it, exiled to Otoh or Kibo.

    Wow, so much to love about this update, even while I'm still hoping this subplot blows up in Roger and Vanna's face A.S.A.P. Jack's voice has always been one of my favorites, and it's great to see him really questioning himself (even if it's driving those of us in the know a bit crazy). Also loving a callback to Maggionette's power to replay conversations she's witnessed as she did for Bunny. A+ setup. Now Maggie and Jack just need to find a way to stop this catastrophe.

    I'm beginning to think that the overall "meta" point of this arc is to teach Parson a new aspect of leadership. Specifically the danger of creating a situation in which none of your friends and subordinates question or stand up to you, even when they should. He's managed to cause that through awe and trust rather than fear, but it's still clearly an issue, as this update highlights.

    I don't understand why Jack learned of this. It seems to be due to Fate, but Fate wants Parson to succeed, right?

    So why does Fate seem to be second-guessing itself by having Jack learn of the treachery in time to possibly stop it?

    Also, if Parson is part of a link-up, I wonder how he appears to his co-linkers. Nekkid, I suppose. But how does his alien mentality appear? I'm really curious.

    Fascinating that it was the doll conveying Roger's words to Jack and not Maggie. The way Jack phrased his request "Make it message to me. What should we do?" It could be interpreted as asking the doll. And in response, the doll gives the important information they need to know. Despite being Bill's creation, it is independently choosing to help GK.

    Also, the doll didn't just overhear this message from Roger. Roger sent this via Thinkagram, which somehow the doll was able to evesdrop on through its connection to Bill. That's huge.

    Fate wants Parson to stay in Erfworld to defeat Charlie. Roger and Vanna want Parson gone from Erf and are currently trying to get rid of him. It is in Fate's interest to stop that from happening.

    No one want to see Parson 'nekkid'. With the exception of Maggie who wants to inspect Parsons personal weapon bonus. Also possibly cannibals. Parson appearing naked would fall under Fan Disservice for almost everyone else.

    So from the looks of it the golem can pick p and playback any thinkmancy communications in its radius. Interesting. Very interesting.

    Walk up to Parson and knock the scroll out of his hand? Shout out Vanna's name very loudly in the hopes that the link breaks or she croaks?

    Fate wants Parson to defeat Charlie, I think, but that doesn't mean it wants him to cast the scroll. Roger did that bit of Foolamancy with the bracer, so maybe Fate is answering his interference by involving Jack and Maggie.

    Before, when we would see 3 casters link, the Thinkamancer seems to control the flow of information. I wonder if Parson's "alien mentality" will override that and he'll see for himself what kind of duplicity he's dealing with.

    He is not the Thinkamancer who initiated the link. A controlled breakup is therefore out of the question already. As for initiating an uncontrolled breakup, that may be possible. Wanda did it accidently to the two person linkup with Maggie when she heard the news that Jillian did not love her. If he retains enough sense of will to even make the attempt in a three person link with a master class Thinkamancer out to screw him over will have to be seen. If the information that he is about to be screwed over reaches him in time that is.
