    "For the purposes of printing the Erfworld books all black / brown dragons were Retconjured to purple."

    And here:

    http://www.erfworld.com/wiki/index.php/Retconjuration

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/155 ... sts/183910

    "When it came time for Rob and company to design the Real World dwagon plushies, the total number of colors initially came to seven. Pink, red, blue, purple, green, yellow, and black. Rob didn't really want to make seven different colors of plushie, because it's an odd number and it just felt like way too many for a set. This led Rob to see if he could get away with dropping one color of dwagon. After looking, Rob found that black (dark brown?) dwagons had only appeared once or twice, and never in combat. Furthermore, he thought black material would look bad with the embroidered eyes. A little while later, in the webcomic The Order of the Stick[2], a dramatic story moment occurred: many, many black dragons (not called dwagons in OOTS) from all over the planet were instantly wiped out by a spell. Rob considers OOTS to be sort of Erfworld's godfather comic; this led him to the conclusion that the same spell must have killed off Erfworld's black dwagons. This prompted Rob to Retconjure all black/brown dwagons to purple for the book printing.[3] (Note that nothing was said about Retconning them in the webcomics, and some readers have reported still finding brown/black dwagons in the book.) "

    The current update is "V is for Vinny."

    It looks to me like the blonde vampire is sporting a prosthetic limb. Does anyone else agree, and has a thing ever appeared in Erfworld before? To my knowledge it hasn't.

    That's not a prosthetic limb. She's Dollamancy, Motion without Life. She's probably an actual Doll.

    Yeah, think it's a doll. Pretty cool looking too. Like it better than the other dolls so far a little bit.

    "V is for Vinny"

    I'm guessing this is a bit of a pre-FAQ Vinny, as I think his signamancy has changed since becoming the prince-consort. What seems strangest to me, however, is the woman on Vinny's left (viewer Right). Isn't that Bunny? One would think she would be more apt to be hanging on Caesar's arm.

    Update: I was about to give reasons as to why it might not be wrong (part of the secret, etc), but on further comparisons, I think I was mistaken. I do not believe that is meant to be Bunny. If nothing else, there is no pendant.

    Overall, this post may seem worthless, but hopefully someone else has been pondering this and I've helped them. Flip between LIAB 59 and this picture. You'll see the differences. Even allowing for the stylistic shift, they are too different.

    That is definitely the best picture of Stanley drawn yet. He has never looked so badass.

    Apparently J. J. Abrams is directing the book, now.

    A little-known fact* is that the subtitle of "Star Trel: Into Darkness" was intended to leave audiences with the impression that Abrams was going to quit tossing in lens flare effects every five seconds.

    *because I just made it up

    For those who missed what I was referring to, there were suddenly two panels in a row rife with lens flare effects. They would not have been sequential in the book, so it was likely mostly an accident, unless the artist is experimenting with a new effect. Or just saw Into Darkness.

    I should say , I have been really enjoying the Erfabet.

    The rhymes and pictures have done a great job of portraying the characters and aspects that is Erfworld , in just a little bit of space.

    Parson's rhyme was awesome.
    Bogroll was defintily the best choice for the #1 spot.
    Stanley with the Arkenhammer was badass.

    Having yellow be y though, seems like cheating :p. But there isn't really any better choice. And the rhyme for it was funny.

    A is for Archons... casters? I thought that when Parson talked to Archon it was stated that they are not casters as such, but flying knights with special skills that are accounted as shockamancy blast, or something like that.
