    It's on now.
    Simply stunning.

    Hmm, when you throw the rulebook of warfare courtesies out the window things always get horrifying and gruesome. I fully expect Parson to be doing things like *le gasp* walking outside his hex, at night! :D

    Can't wait for the mini-updates during summer, book two during autumn, and a chance to purchase book one. :mrgreen:

    I... I don't know if I would have come up with that. It needed to be done, and I missed it. Boop, I feel embarrassed.

    I cant help but notice, that he broke free from the panels. The last page he is no longer confined to Erfworld's boxes.

    He finally did it - he threw away the sword.

    So, just what is Parson now, if he's no longer a warlord unit? Can't wait to find out in Book 2.

    the sword doesn't make him a warlord

    he's still a warlord, but he may have just defected. he may now be considered his own side and thus language filter is set by him now.

    the next story is said to be a "narrative distance" so i don't think it's going to start with stanley showing up and being happy/furious. i get the feeling some short stories will explain all that and kick the story off in a very different way.

    Gamebreaker indeed.

    Look out, Charlie. You woke a giant with your meddling.

    And he's pissed.

    I find it odd people are speculating that he broke the rules. Then again, with no rules obviously stated we'll never know.

    Was it a bad idea to throw away a magical item/artifact (dont know if it counts as made by people from erf) that in technicality is property of his side without express permission from stanley; yes. Doesn't mean he broke any actual rules. Heck if he's following the rules of obedience and believes throwing away the sword better serves his side then him keeping it, then he's following them.

    Is it against the rules to use naughty language? Hey I dont think so. Heck there aren't even any children in erfworld, everyone is a mature adult here, who are we censoring things from!? Oh wait, nobles. =p We all saw how great that turned out when they got together to pick on the uncouth commoner who had risen to power. XD

    *Laughs HARD at the probably unintentional pun.* Sizemore had a rather pretty-looking "NSFW" attack, too. XD

    Seriously, though. Parson's rant reminds me of Great Teacher Largo's rant in Megatokyo about "I will not teach NPCs." He got what he thought he wanted when he was first summoned. In Erfworld, he got what Erf thought he needed. Only now is Parson saying, "Ok, screw the rules. I am not an NPC. I am a PLAYER. You don't tell me what to do, I tell YOU!" SO EPIC!

    June 4th can't come soon enough.

    Oh well Parson, you can curse all you want you're still trapped inside the damn place and bound
    to give us at least another book.

    Nice finale.

    Yup, page 135 and this.

    Hrm, his scabbard dissapeared.

    Erfworld gave him the sword to make Parson its "Perfect Warlord." Looks like Parson's done being what the world made him into.

    "You didn't wish for this world, Parson Gotti. It wished for you."

    Be careful what you wish for, indeed.

    Also, notice the pause. It is like he expected to be censored. "Fuck" <oh that worked> "... you".

    Maybe the "I am a player" comment disables the language filter.


    I think the ... represents the effort of throwing the sword. ### throw you!

    Even with this "release" Parson is still a "Stranger in a Strange Land" he is still there, and he still has work to do if he is going to fulfill what Janis's Prophecy for him. It is the first real alone moment for him and he rages against the system just like he would do back at Kinkos yet lacks the courage to do so. Erf caused Parson to see the if "fanatsy were reality" of his lifestyle would be not to his liking even when he supposedly created it. As Ashna said in that page it is not healthy for you. http://www.erfworld.com/book-1-archive/?px=%2F016.jpg panel 5 and she was so right.

    Totally brilliant. Well done!

    So parson overcame the thinkamancy he was laboring under. I guess that is similar to how Jillian broke Wanda's suggestion spell. Since Wanda also cast the summoning spell, I hope she doesn't get a backlash. :-(

    Nice to see Parson finally return the world's constant "fuck you," and with some interest.

    Rob: a masterfully told story. I haven't read something as good, in any format, in quite some time.

    Jamie: excellent, truly spectacular art. Your inspired choices and subtle touches took Erfworld from great to something really special.

    I'm sad to see the first book end, even though it's on such a great note. I have that bittersweet heartache I remember from the end of a teenage summer romance.
