    Rob Balder you mad genius I love you! This is amazing and I cannot wait for The next updates!

    I love that he calls her Sister Wanda. Think about it FAQ was a kingdom run by a small man trying to achieve a big dream. Now we have Parson on a path to do the same thing on a much bigger scale. He will bring peace to Erf through war. And here we have two of Banhammer's old court here with him. I think that bring an interesting undertone to the whole thing. Furthermore, it hints at what I fully expect to be an amazing interaction between two fascinating characters.

    Does she not care what he calls her because knowing about Charlie's contract is more important? Or because it is Jack Snipe and of all the beings she has decrypted she needs him to be more than just another worshipper? I'm sure if she came down on his personality right now when his "re-aligning" is fresh she could have a serious effect. But she doesn't. That's pleasing.

    and what a fascinating look into Jack's mind and decrypting. Amzing update.

    His eyes are blue now, not pink. Do you think he is cured of his brain damage?

    Edit* That is to say, that these feelings aren't the pliers, but how he actually felt about her before the trimancer link ruined his brain?

    So this is why Wanda and Jack have not told Parson about Charlie, they could not. No wonder Charlie wanted a decrypted he needed to know what they could talk about now as "new" units with their memories. Things just got very interesting and Charlie is going to be in some serious trouble.

    These audio updates are really quite nice. I like them.

    What kind of contract has Jack Snipe had with Charlie? Hmm... This makes me hope for a new Book 0 update soon.

    What do you suppose Jack meant by thinking that he was on a different "plane" beneath the "visual"? Do you think he is some sort of ghost? An insight into how Decryption and maybe Croackamancy actually work?

    Hmmmmm interesting!
    I love this different way Jack has of seeing Wanda....she's Sister instead of Mistress to him! Interesting that'd he'd be different, and it alludes back to the FAQ tradition of addressing casters. I like it.
    As for Charlie....that makes me suspicious. I'm reading it as suggesting Jack had a deal with Charlie that involved some service which Charlie can no longer call upon. Time will tell I guess.

    The mention of not so lovely Wanda puts it at the time they fought Olive. So Jack had probably agreed to something similar to the battle calculations Parson needs to provide to Charlie.

    And he will know it as well. He did get his Archon right? Or will at least since Jetstone badly needs that payment. So once he turns her, and realizes Jack has been de-crypted, he will know that Parson knows.

    Unrelated to the plot, I have to say I'm not at all a fan of the 'Pliers in this new art style. They're actually normal sized in relation to Wanda, as opposed to the oversized proportions they always have been.

    Yeah he doesn't have it yet because Jetstone had it in captivity and they're fleeing to Jetstone city. I imagine he'll send Archons to pick it up next turn.

    Now we know why Jack had such a wicked smile in the last panel of book 2. He hasn't gotten to tell Parson yet. But soon not only will Parons know but the Thinkamancer's as well. That gives them a little jump on Charlie.

    Nevermind, I take back my earlier point after re-reading. It definitely seems like Jack and Wanda are talking about a Non-Disclosure Agreement

    The art seems to be still improving! I think the brown unit in the second picture is the best one yet. The guy to the right of him still looks like he smells something bad though. :P

    Jack looks very nice in the second picture, but his nose doesn't seem to maintain size between the two.


    On the archonpliers, they can be resized just like any other magic item, but they do seem a bit small here still.

    Yeah, Wanda has always kept them a size that (to us Earthlings) seems too big, so I assumed that was the appropriate size, and it's odd to see them be smaller.

    Its tight quarters. And I hope we get Ace next if the POV decryptions continue. That would be pretty sweet.

    Woah! That Wanda/Jack are under an NDA with Charlie is a big reveal. Maybe this has something to do with Wanda and Jack being on GK's side. I want to think that maybe Jillian knows something about this cause she's from FAQ too, but my gut tells me no.

    Are we looking at the same thing? I don't think the art is up to par.

    Intruiging.

    Aside from that though, I hope the artist will improve a lot and quickly - for the sake of Erfworld, which deserves more. This update's art looks very amateur and esp. Wanda looks rather gross even with the weird non-skin and plastic proportions (nevermind the awful outfit, but that's a design thing and I don't think much of Wanda's wardrobe style in general, too much skin and no beauty - personal opinion).

    So if Jack had his contract/NDA lifted upon death... the other implication is that Wanda is still under hers. She probably still can't speak about it. After Parson learns of this I bet he chums for what other secrets his allies are bound up in.

    Rob, I love your plotting so much! The number of times you have just taken my breath away like that over the last few months.
