    Why would Skyy outrank Parson, an allied CWL? Maybe she's just referring to her level?

    Ooooooh good, Benjy is on the case. It will be nice to finally see a Moneymancer's take on negotiations, especially THIS Moneymancer.

    Somehow I have a feeling we're gonna see a King George pun soon.

    I believe so, as Parson is only Level 3 (and not the Chief), while Skyy is Level 5

    See, Skyy is helping TV pull through
    But her leadership is suddenly brought to
    With Cheri's question confusing
    And the situation still not diffusing
    Skyy realizes she doesn't know what to do

    Yeah, Parson is only a lvl 2 or 3 warlord, she's a lvl 5 warlady. Insofar as Erfworld goes she technically outranks him, though CWL status may change that.

    I did not realise the text on the wall was from a previous page - well spotted and thank you for the link.

    And, this is a briefer update than usual, but it still has punch and heft. I appreciate having a good concise update to enjoy. Thank you Erfworld Team, nice work. Excellent voice from our main protagonist.

    Ooof. Poor Parson. Skyy really just thinks nothing of him at all.

    So, any reason they were planning on shooting GK units in the first place? The alliance was in place by that point, and hadn't been broken. Also, revolver turned back into a glock.

    Interesting. Because I kind of have a hunch that she isn't interested in men at all.

    She believes no one knows anything. Plato believed he was ahead, because he knew he knew nothing. Signamancy is all about Platonic ideals.

    Skyy is a Signamancer!

    I'm wondering if the GK/TV alliance was broken to prevent issues with the GK/CC treaty and TV shooting up CC units using weapons/ammo from GK.

    Can anyone make out the entirety of the wall plaque with Charlescomm demands? I can read everything until point 7.

    -- Ugh, missed Sir Hamster's post linking to an earlier page. Thanks Sir Hamster.

    I like the action of bringing Benjamin into the negotiations. I've had a pet theory for a few weeks... has it really been months, sheesh... anyway, a pet theory that, just like so many other magical disciplines, there's an underlying hidden meaning behind it's name and workings.

    Turnamancy is really about Motivation, Hippymancy is "Peace, Love and Harmony", etc.

    And in this case... Moneymancy isn't about Money per se, it's about Value!

    Parson described Benjamin as a walking bullcrap detector, implying that he could see the value in the information they were being given, and could use that information to gauge whether it was actually worth anything.

    For example, if they were being given information that seemed too valuable, Ben could likely see that it was too valuable and call the bluff. On the other hand, if he was given information that was too worthless or had too little value, he could ignore it and ask a question to "stir the pot" and try to evoke a reaction that would drop something of higher value.

    And that, I believe, is what we are slowly learning about caster disciplines, each one has intrinsic psychological and even spiritual ties to things. These people aren't just burning juice and mumbling words... they're casting along lines of psychological thought and spiritual perspectives that other people just normally don't understand.

    No wonder casters are known for keeping their secrets. It'd be like pulling teeth just trying to get people to understand anything!

    Also, I like how Huehue has managed to present the information to Ben in such a way that at any time he can review a piece of it at a glance, referencing different pieces of it without relying on just memory to do so.

    I'd also like it if Huehue changes it to his own counter-offer once the deal gets shot down (Because let's face it, NO WAY can TV survive one of CHARLIE's deals).

    Cease this butchery of thine!
    Meter matters more than rhyme.
    See the proper rhyme and beat,
    equal theme and meaning greet:

    -------

    When Skyy, a warlord in defiance,
    received from the GK alliance
    a pistol and bullets,
    she knew not who told it,
    and stood there, confused for reliance.

    Then Cheri asked questions that stumped her,
    for no one (that she'd seen) could trump her,
    and yet came no answer,
    for Skyy knew no plan, sir.
    So here's Cheri, now having chumped her.

    There's no time to waste here for thinking!
    Just meet the GK troops a'winking.
    It's time now to find Ben,
    and see what he's done, then:
    we'll make our way up to him plinking!

    EDIT made to clarify,
    and fix a word that went awry.

    (I'd also like to just merely here say,
    with the constraints of my meter away,
    that practice of rhyming is all well and good,
    and despite my comment before, well, you should!)

    Edit: looking back I realize that this could be taken as further insulting. I would like to state that that was not my intention, and I was trying to be supportive of a fellow Rhyme-o-mancer, and saying that he or she should continue making poetry, not that they need to continue practicing. My sincere apologies if I offended people through jabs intended to be lighthearted that have their tone translate poorly via text, that was not my intention at all. Poetry fills the Erf with joy, so it should never be squashed out of hand!

    I'm just waiting for Skyy to be holding everything back. Because, as you know, the Skyy is the Limit. Alternative is everyone trying to approach her but never reaching. I'll see myself out.
