    Crap, Charlie has Caesar, and thereby TV, at the fangs.

    Doublecrap, unless Caesar did promote someone as heir (if that was even possible to begin with in his state) then every TV unit in the field just disbanded. I hope Vinny is in one of Faqs former cities.

    I've got to say, I did not see this coming at all. But I guess, rules of conservation of detail, after they laid out rulers being captured, we had to see it at some point, right?

    Glad Caesar's still alive. Not sure how the chain of command works now, what with the temples in play and all. But very interesting development!

    Holy cwap. Caesar is prisoner. You can see from his Signamancy.

    And finally, after so long a time, the rules on a Ruler becoming prisoner apply. I really thought it would be Jillian, not Caesar.

    http://archives.erfworld.com/Book%203/9

    But what does this do to Vinnie? Is he in a city or is he disbanded?

    Is Shirley referring to Bill as comic relief? Does that, uhh, frighten anyone else?

    The details of this strip are nice. The new tower, the Titan carvings on Transylvito, etc.

    Also - I wonder how much of Charlie's decision to hold Caesar hostage is Shirley influencing him vs. him wanting to get more out of the situation?

    Either the tower is forcing ethics on Charlie to think or Charlie doesn't want to make mama tower angry.

    From the Wiki:

    If a ruler is made prisoner, then one of two things will happen:

    [*]If they have an heir, their heir will become ruler in their place.

    [*]There is currently conflicting information on what will happen if they do not have an heir. According to Hvs.tCF 9, this will make field units disband and everything else go neutral, leaving the side frozen in time as if the ruler was killed. If the ruler is repatriated, the side will resume as before, albeit with all field units still gone. IPTSF Text 68, however, suggests that field units will continue to live so long as the ruler prisoner remains alive and on the same side.

    I have to tell you, I am getting mighty tired of the protagonists being so gullible and passive. Sticking with it, and have faith that Rob will make this all work somehow, but between the pacing and the idiot balls, it is starting to really wear thin.

    Hmm, We know that the towers can see, and somewhat manipulate, the strings between units, I wonder if the towers can prevent field units from disbanding by redirecting juice in some way.

    Also... This tower reminds me of Jed a bit.... Already like him

    Also, did Shirley just refer to Bill as the comic relief? In what kind of weird Stagemancy and perspective is Bill the comic relief?

    Shirley Temple - I wonder if her voice is based on the Senator Temple or the cute girl Temple we saw once singing "on the good ship lollypop".

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirley_Temple

    In terms of capturing a leader ... and a parley ... I do not see this playing out well, but if there is an opportunity to talk (without Charlescom knowing) then I would imagine that we might see the engagement of Parson back into the game.

    And .. Charlie is seen as a hero by Shirley - I find that a fascinating exercise in framing. Seriously, I can see how GodwinKnob is set up as a villains type empire, and Charlsecom is set up as a heroic once but it's not how we see it from our side of the Narrative - Charlescom is not even a businesslike enterprise with neutral values on the Hero/villains axis, but a gouging damaging win at all costs enterprise.

    Is this the first time we've seen an Erfworld unit say "murder"?
    The design of the new tower/temple is fantastic at any rate - definitely worth the wait.

    And I love how the Arkendish looks like a baby monitor in Charlie's "crib" thinkspace :lol:

    The signamancy of the temples sure is interesting. GK got an ancient Polynesian totem, and TV got an ancient Aztec totem. What the heck is up with Charlie's temple, then?

    What's up with Charlie's signamancy in this thought space?

    I get the child imagery. The baby mobile, blocks, toy Arkendish, and animal crackers. It's to symbolize that Charlie is essentially a child that mama Shirley is taking care of and teaching morality to.

    What I don't get is the lion onesie. I mean, I get that it's additional child imagery. What I don't get is that why are the jammies specifically a lion?
