I take it you're not from the States, or don't watch North American network television at all? Wikipedia/Google (or use your favorite search engine) and search for for "Breaking Bad."

You might find the reference a little obtuse in this case, but the pun is delightfully fitting.

    It almost looks like Ace's arms move from the first panel to the next-to-last panel. That may mean he's been shackled as an incapacitated unit inside a conquered city.

    Or maybe it's a different angle. Yeah, he's probably dead.

    Breaking off to form his own side sure seems the obvious move to undo both dead Jack and inferno city. It even leaves the door open for Parson to go back to the magic kingdom to get more intel on Charlie from the think alikers.

    It wasn't so much a periodic table reference as it was a reference to the show, "Breaking Bad", and its usual logo: http://tvsurveillance.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/dc2bd_breaking-bad-logo.jpg, as well as being a pun on what he was currently doing to Clonely(breaking the king's back).

    I have not owned a television in years. I looked up the show on your recommendation and it does look entertaining.

    It doesn't matter, cus the real King was dead ages ago anyway, it's not like Parson missing the "poof" means that the real King has escaped.

    It changed because Gobwin Knob took the city (changing all the livery in the process, including statues.) The statues used to be those of Jetstone heroes; now they're statues of Gobwin Knob heroes. Apparently Bogroll qualifies, since he sacrificed his life as part of a plan to save the side (and directly croaked an enemy chief warlord.)

    I have a difficult time accepting that Charlie's original plan was to trap Parson in with an inferno. The fire hadn't even started when the plan was formulated and, once Gobwin Knob had taken the city, the portal would have shut anyway. There was no need to change the capitol until after the inferno level had been reached. I had originally thought that the plan involved Charlie or Jetstone doing something between the portal shutting down and GK taking control of the garrison but we can see now that wasn't the case. I guess we may see some retconjuration or maybe perhaps pulling some off-page Predictamancy about the inferno out of the ass/hat.
    At least the remainingg dwagons can now fly out of the garrison into the airspace with any non-heavy GK units left. Not sure if the airspace allows them to escape the inferno, thought.

    And to those who were wondering if Ace is dead or not. He is dead otherwise GK would not have control of the garrison.

    Out of curiosity, has it been confirmed anywhere that a unit is able to turn and form their own side by breaking away and capturing a capitol city?

    I don't think Charlie knew it would end in an inferno. My guess is once the inferno is defused (however that is achieved), Charlie will reveal he has a lot of units in the area (archons and/or the remainder of Haggar's forces) and revert to his original plan of attacking Parson directly. The inferno is an unexpected bonus for Charlie.

    Control-Z... undo whatever just happened. I'm unable to think of any previously mentioned possibility that would undo anything, other than retconjuration (does Parson really seem like the ultimate naughtymancer?).

    This does seem simplest and most consistent with the rules of Erfworld, as we know them.

    And yeah, looks like Ace croaked, unless he went barbarian somehow. Croaking fits the simplest explanation of events, so I'm ready to lose some quatloo on my prediction concerning him turning from Jetstone.

    It would be more fulfilling if it wasn't a clone. I had to look up control z.

    Is Parson about to answer whether or not he is a Retconjurer?

    Seems seriously unlikely, but....

    Close, I think. Do you think that Power Button he's got could be a Reset Button? Do-over on the last few actions, including Jack's death?

    I believe my original point stands. The portal would have closed regardless - Jetstone didn't have to switch capitols for Parson to be trapped in Jetstone. Once Parson had gone through to Jetstone and taken control of the garrison, the portal would have closed. Closing the portal behind him after he discovered the city was ablaze was the only way to prevent him from going back but that would only make sense if the inferno was part of Charlie's original plan.

    Not-Slately's death confession says "To trap you. To burn you." which hints that the fire was supposedly part of the plan all along. Not buying that given the timeline of events.

    Bah, the wait to the next Book2 update will kill me!

    Also I kinda feel Rob might be overdoing the references atm, I mean both Right Bear Arm and now Break King Back are very gratuitous and not very clever or interesting, not even going into dollspeak.

    I just felt the need to say that, I don't really mind this issue and it might be rosy glasses on my part anyway.

    Maybe a Predictamancer told him some of what would happen to manipulate him? Of course, Charlie already knows that the Predictamancers are his enemies, so probably not. Thinkamancy itself however has some limited access to Predictamancy, so maybe the Arkendish amplified his intuition or something.

    Parson could be referring to ctrl-Z-ing the Summon Perfect Warlord spell...he does still have the scroll of unknown Carnymancy on his belt. I can't think of anything else that would be an undoing, except razing the city as noted.
