    Ah, just when I thought that whoever had "the 4th update after the restart" in the pool was going to collect!

    Anyway, it's seeming more and more like Stanley and Wanda did Jillian an enormous favour by getting her out of this place. I don't really get any sense at all that she loves or even likes her father or pretty much anyone here besides Jack, and frankly maliciously inflicting an hour-long tea ceremony on people is grounds for execution anyway. Stanley was just carrying out justice.

    Contradiction in this update vs. the previous text update?

    Moothfott is mentioned as the Moneymancer in the previous text update, and in this one it seems he is referred to as the Mathamancer. Or I'm just reading it wrong.

    Anyway, love the jokes in this one. Of course Erfworld would have an actual "barking spider". :lol:

    Suddenly her hate for "taking tea" is much more understandable.

    I am guessing fjolnir is assuming that "I am the platekeeper" is a reference to "I am the Gatekeeper."

    It felt like may be karate kid type situation... paint the fence, wash the car... serve the tea.

    Unclear whether her father is the fool or the chessmaster pretending to be a fool and willing to sacrifice himself and others for his long term goal through Jillian.

    "Jillian’s father look upon her. He neither smiled nor frowned, but met her eyes with discernment"

    If that is an intentional Ghostbusters reference, it's a bit ew.

    No, it clearly states Mathamancer, although his contribution reads like something a Moneymancer would say. Expect a retconjuration shortly, as well as for the text "to view injury in terms of Foolamancy", at which point we'll retconjure these posts as well so that no one else will ever know. :D

    Props to you, man. Love it when people respond to an obscure reference with an even more obscure one from the same source.

    Really though. I think I hate this side extra, if this is really how they spend their time. I've always found philosophy to be mildly pointless and pretentious at times, but none so much as debate about the nature of reality and how much of it is perception or illusion. These tedious debates can last hours and, like here, are held by people with a weak grasp of the reality they are talking about. I doubt any of these people have seen more than a couple battles, and probably never taken a hit since the turn they were popped.

    Jillian, help that woman out. Stab her with your tea spoon, so she can figure out whether injuries are foolamancy or not.

    It'd be an arbitrarily convincing illusion. Whether the injury is real or not, the pain is real...

    Shouldn't "Barking Spiders" be "Barking Spidews"?

    I'm pretty sure it's a reference to the Japanese Tea Ceremony

    I am wondering on "why" rather than the "reference", related to plot... is it a waste of time or is it training Jillian mental toughness, in her area of weakness. (Diplomacy skills with pompous other royals...)

    Well, her sleep might be guaranteed free of by barking spiders/spidews, but is she absolutely certain that not even one Snipe will disturb her sleep? Metaphorically, if not literally...

    As to being the "plate keeper"; perhaps, but its not keeping her placated

    OK. that's most of the bad jokes out the system, (I'll keep a firm hold of the Jack-ing themed one though).

    Fixed, thanks. It was a careless late-night edit after an exhausting con weekend. :oops:
