    So is that an etsie, or is that the portal column?

    Umm... what the frisbee has just happened?

    Making us wait three months to find out is just trolling...

    I am sooooo confused. Did something make the gestalt reconsider its plans, or did it go trough with it? The golem now looks like Isaac from The Binding of Isaac. That can't be good.

    In the context of the previous post, perhaps he is testing the process of giving something a string using the action figure, as a safer thing to test the spell (initially) on than the portal column? "Transformation" is certainly an appropriate spell for the purpose.

    Edit: Hadn't caught the "Binding of Isaac" reference. Sacrificial lamb? Make it a unit, link to it, send it through the portal?

    So, is the doll Isaac's now? He used some sort of "transform" spell, to give it Isaac signamancy...

    So that is an interesting bit of knowledge there. Big think doesn't have to be in contact to still maintain the link, assuming Ivan and Claude are still party of it.

    Verwandlug is German for transformation.

    Did Isaac cost GK another 5 million or 1/2 the treasury? Is what he did considered an attack even? Do actions by Isaac count as attacks from GK?

    What the heck is going on?

    It looks like Charlie was the one who failed in eliminating his enemies in a roguelike way - and fell prey to the Blinding of Eyes trick.

    Ok, so I think that doll at the end is the action figure transformed into a crying etsie. See how he kind of tosses it away at the end there? But I'm not sure.

    So Verwandlung is German for Transformation.

    And that doll is a clear Binding of Isaac reference.

    I guess the question is if the reference goes beyond Isaac "binding" the cloth golem.

    Also unknown I guess is if Isaac's ability to do that comes from "stealing" the dollomancer abilities from the link, or whether a cantrip like that is more easily accessible. An implication either way is how Isaac will interact with the Thinkamancer-Dollamancer stuff happening in Transylvito.

    They went with Dollamancer's (Claud's) suggestion from the previous update to make a portal column golem. They turned Charlescomm into a tower golem just like Jed. Big Think is saying that they gave the world/Fate (Charlescomm tower) a conscious will and it's going to carry out Charlie's destruction just like Fate has always wanted. Big Think takes the action figure and transforms it into that Binding of Isaac doll. I don't know why yet.

    Here's my line by line translation:

    Mm. This dear little mother has sharp claws!

    The portal column golem (and/or Fate) is strong.

    In the war between yourself and the Grand Cosmos, you must stack with the Cosmos!

    Allying with Fate is always the best option.

    Verwandlung!

    Transform. (Big Think is casting a spell on the Charlescomm action figure.)

    One must not cheat.

    I had many ideas about how to fight Charlie, but they were all cheats. Even though I had good intentions of wanting to stop Charlie cheating, it was wrong of me to want to stoop to Charlie's level.

    One must not cheat anyone! Not even the world of its victory.

    Instead of fighting Charlie by cheating, I've simply enabled Fate (the world) to fight Charlie directly. Fate wants Charlie dead, but it has always had to work indirectly, through intermediaries. Now it can finish the job personally. It will sort him out.

    Wanda seems oddly okay with letting Isaac take off with Tondelayo's corpse, and leaving her two casters seemingly incapacitated.

    Maybe she's just beyond reacting to any type of situation anymore. Which given what's been happening to her, I wouldn't be surprised.

    ...but Isaac's taking the Wrench with him. What could he need it for, without Ivan? Or maybe he can maintain his connection to Ivan remotely and can use the Wrench himself? He did just seem to use some kind of Dollamancy on the doll...aargh, so many questions.

    FINE TIME FOR A CLIFFHANGER, ROB. JEEZ. YOU AND YOUR SELFISH DESIRES LIKE HAVING A LIFE AND GETTING MARRIED.

    I do wish Wanda hadn't picked up the rifle, guns are really not her style.

    Verwandlung translates to transformation (or metamorphosis), so I think Isaac just changed the unit type of the doll.

    And what do we know of etsies? They cost upkeep, have one hit... and no move, no attack. Without harming it, Isaac has removed the doll as a threat.

    I really hope this doesn't mean Isaac is taking all the "cheats" (Wonky Wrench, pilfered juice, and corpses created via remote string cutting) with him and going home.
