    The thing I'm thinking about Templeton is that for all that he's a gabby dandy... he has big eyes and big ears. He knows when to watch and listen...

    Ha! Lil' Caesar. I was wondering when that reference would come up. Also, confirmation that Makaleka broke Bill.

    Yippie! Yippie!

    I don't need to worry about the serious issue because I don't want to yet, here's my ultimatum? Charlie would be so disappointed. If you can't get payed twice, make the client grateful to pay you once. Any good mercenary (and a few bad ones) know that rule

    Heh Monte Zuma. I kinda get the Montezuma reference there, but the TV Tower is supposed to be like an Italian mobster, so I don't get how the Aztec reference here relates.

    Also, Bill's alive? But brain dead? How the hell does that work? To quote Ross Scott pg Freeman's Mind: Hello?!

    Anyone else notice that the pipes representing the tutelaries are the same color as their portal? Jed is green, Shirley is orange, Huehue is yellow, and Templeton is red.

    If Bill is brain dead, they just need someone to stack with Caesar before Bill can respond to the order to croak him.

    Does anyone else go over the "Pipes" panels with a fine-toothed comb looking for the Utah teapot? You know it's got to be in there :mrgreen:

    So all these towers can just talk to each other whenever they want, and that doesn't cost juice. Using juice "from the source" is somehow bad, implying that it isn't as infinite as Charlie thinks. Like, I'm thinking this is like a "Mako energy" scenario from FF VII where over tapping the source will kill the planet, but am I off base here?

    If Charlie is off-dish then he is no longer affecting Caesar. I think most of Caesars' despair was carnymancy. Per Parson from Janis: Carnymancy is the foolamancy of belief. I suspect HueHue is misleading/distracting Shirley so Caesar can have the option to free himself.

    Interesting use of the dots connecting to highlighted groups of words. Templeton "connecting the dots" is translating temple signs to Language signamancy? :jed:

    Oof. "Monte Zuma"? Shirley is pretty... rough* around the edges.

    *By rough I mean racist.

    Good question here: can the Towers even hurt Charlescomm? Like more than Charlescomm has been hurt by the MK? Is unplugging the line to the source even matter right now? Charlie is right, this is horrible timing to get a blackout. Like what are the Towers going to do? Tell on CC to their rulers. At least half of them would look at infinite juice and go "jackpot". Why do the towers CARE if the other Towers condemn them? They will get lonely? Or is there some physical or mental harm they can inflict on other towers?

    PS: I just hit top five for most posts on the Erfworld forums if you rule out the Titan. So go me?

    Well, the towers seem to be representative of the side as well as the capital city in creation (I'm thinking back to ICFYS Templeton). I don't think the Italian mafia/Roman mafia style is what is being represented but rather what the tower feels itself to be. And in this case, it is a raging vampiric leader with a taste for revenge after all the recent events of scheming and backstabbing (Monte had a lot of that in his waters). The Aztecs were known for their blood sacrifices to their gods as well, which relates nicely to the vampire theme. As well as being warmongering across their lands (which I suppose also fits the TV in a constant state of fighting/infighting theme).

    So in the new temple-based reality, Rulers are a part of the command structure but effectively temples can shut them right out and negotiate between themselves. I mean really - both Charlie and Caesar are pretty much side issues in this conversation - what they want doesn't count so much as what's needed for the side. Shirley's making plays based on the pieces she has in action - happily ready to give orders to the dolls with or without a functioning dollamancer. Everyone it turns out is a placeholder that can be used to generate functions through a temple's willpower - look at the way the tower enhanced the emotional bond between Parson and members of the side to counteract the spell. None of them had to perform any actions to exercise their part in the spell - just Jed sending juice in the right direction.

    Am I right in thinking this means that somehow tutelaries are the side? We haven't had a side with a temple lose a ruler as yet. Previously that meant side over without an heir - but has that changed now? Can a tower act as regent? Would Caesar dying be inconvenient but beyond that nothing much?

    Hrm.

    Huehue has already explicitly told Caesar that he couldn't make the final decision for the side, that he needed Caesar to tell him if the terms were acceptable.

    The tutelaries are basically the guardian spirits of their sides, and immensely powerful, but they aren't the side per se.

    Not a complaint about the update or its size, but this particular page somehow feels... incomplete?

    Maybe we’ll get part two with a similar page on Friday.
