    Well, that was unexpected ... by me, anyway. I guess we can forget about that tactic, at least against targets as sophisticated as Charlie.

    We all knew it wouldn't work, but if Charlie was able to reprogram it that easily, then Parson's got his work cut out for him.

    I'm more puzzled by the fact that the unit didn't disband once it came back from the portal.

    Seems... abnormal.

    I don't think is was reprogrammed, I think it was confiscated and reverse-engineered, and replaced with advanced armament that Charlie already had.

    He placed the burdensome crown back on his pate and waited, both with impatience and with dread. He drummed his fingers, and glanced around the tabletop. It was covered with odd items. That awful Dollamancer's things. Had that buffoon really wasted juice without orders on this critical turn, just to make another "accessory?"

    ...

    The King picked up some kind of odd green egg-shaped object with a ring at the top, and looked at it in the light of the room's sole orb. Useless. He placed it back down and pushed it away. Holly Shortcake would not have fabricated such things. She was such a delight.

    Perhaps it was created inside the MK? Did anyone actually see it come through the portal? Charlie could have sent a caster through who could have created it on the spot. OTOH, if anyone could get a unit through a portal it would be a carnymancer, I guess.

    Seriously, how did he not recognize it as a grenade if he has made grenades before?

    I've read book 2 many times and I don't ever remember seeing Ace use or make a grenade.

    Well I'll be damned. Still a M67 spherical grenade and M26 "egg" (as mentioned in the text) looks different than an Mk 2 "pineapple". Ace may not have recognized it in the split he had to examine it. He may have realized it when Parson ordered him to chuck it away.

    For reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M67_grenade http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mk_2_grenade http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M61_grenade

    Oh wow Parson just saved Issac. I hope there will be feels.

    Wait no stuff happens at the start of a book, then people react in the middle, and at the end everything changes forever, and in the epilogue people process their feels.

    Hmm, wait according to my math that means next page there will be processing feels, and then book 4. That would be silly.

    Hm, not sure I buy it. I mean, I could understand him not recognizing it completely but it should have been familiar at least. Of course, with the way things work in Erfworld, just because a dollamancer makes something that looks like something in Stupidworld doesn't mean they know much about the item in question. In fact, they don't really seem to know anything about it other than it's Erfworld use. Or did Rob just forget? It's not like him but these things happen.

    Well, I don't think we need retconjuration just yet. I think you're on to something, though. Ace did say that most of that stuff on the table was junk. Now just because he made an M26 doesn't mean that he has the ability load it up with gunpowder. It may have just been the empty casing and, thus, incomplete or "junk". If that's the case, then Ace wouldn't actually know what it was. Especially in the split second before tossing it.

    I admittedly don't know much about grenades, but doesn't arming it remove the lever thingy? Pull the pin to arm it, but as long as the hand brake looking thing is held, it won't explode?

    That being said, I think chances are good the camera will return later in the comic.

    Also, Ace throwing the grenade is labeled "Chuck."

    Apt.

    That is correct sir. If the lever is held, then you can technically put the pin back and the primer won't ignite. However, I think that the grenade is magical. Working on proximately detection. That or the soldier pulled the pin right as he gave it to Ace. That being the case, grenades have very imprecise timers. Sometimes they will go off at 10 seconds like advertised or sometimes 8 or less. You can still see the lever in the second to last panel so I assume it was flicking off then, or the grenade is magical like I said. Have to wait until the next update for an explanation I suppose.

    That's always been the case. Why are you surprised by that now? I see by your post count that you've been here for a while.

    Ace has always been shown as being tall for an Erfworlder, in his first appearance he is about a head taller than everyone else.
