    Ok, the significance of that update eludes me so far. New side, new players. Time unknown. But hey, Book 5!

    Was not expecting book 5 to have started already. If I had to guess, news of the treaty breaking event has spread to other parts of the world by now, but not sure. If it hasn't, this is in the past most likely. If it has, then this is a time skip into the future. They didn't mention a talking tower though, so maybe it's in the past.

    Just a reminder that, yes, this is supposed to be Book 5 as listed. Per the recent news post, Book 4 will be split off of Book 3. This isn't done yet, but Soon™.

    So, apparently, Gumps are capable of indipendant action. At least some of them.

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeee!

    FINALLY! we can start getting into casters and casting that isn't one of the over-used five (Dollamancy, Dirtamancy, Thinkamancy, Foolamancy, Croakamancy)

    I mean, I know we've seen Janis but... well, we haven't seen much of real signamancy other than the towers talking to each other and Charlie's contracts. Actually seeing signamancers communicating with each other is... new.

    And bonus! It comes with the first Book-5 PREQUEL!

    That being said, I am a DUNCE at knowing what the heck half the signs are. Heck, even most of the NAMES go over my head, just that they're weird.

    Is it ironic the description of the ruler being at the top of a high place like that and I just finished making a HUGE minecraft pyramid? No... well maybe it's just me.

    The smiley face and American signamancy makes me think of the Comedian from Watchmen.

    Also, Ted Westwinghouse. Jed Bartlett was President on the show The West Wing. I wonder if Rob would have liked to use that name, but couldn't due to a certain tower already being named such. Oddly, the Silent E name would still work as Silent J.

    How did you survive the Erfworld experience so far?? I mean, if you have to make a saving throw against puns or explode each time you hear a pun....

    You must be a statistical miracle.

    This was just a lot of heavy puns all at once. Usually they are all spread out more. Though I am still in recovery from that Jed-Eye Knight pun.

    I don't understand a fraction of the puns... I think I see the Walmart smile face, Goodwill logo, A cross between generic and America, and possibly a reference to the Texas flag? Mostly things that scream capitalism.

    However, if as was theorized earlier about all capitals having living temples did occur, and other sides were listening in on Shirley and Huehue, it would cause panic world wide, especially for other sides that rely on signamancy and contracts. That would explain other sides knowing what happened so soon. If not, then it would be difficult for word to spread.

    I was beginning to believe I was the only one seeing the Goodwill logo, but Jethreuel beat me to it. :)

    Well, for proper speculation we would need a time frame. How much time has passed since the end of book 4, if any? Theoretically this could be scene that has happened in book 4. Heck, it could be a scene that happened before book 0 for all we know.

    So for now we can only employ WAGS (Wild Assed Guess Speculation) instead of the properly reliable Scientific Wild Assed Guess Speculation.

    What is the signamancy of Byrn's appearance? Or some of the symbols on Portia? Or the signamancy of Portia's Name? Possibly referencing a port that specializes in diesel or other petroleum products? She does look also like a race-car driver.

    Well, as atrocious and tacky as it all is, at least it's a way to make a living in Erfworld that doesn't revolve around combat.

    Some of those sides are pretty combative. Okay okay. Charlescomm. Charlescomm is not a peaceful side. You don't think advertising that sort of thing is the worst kind of combative in which you profit but keep your hands clean?

    Danica Patrick (race car driver) + Porsche Diesel + Danica Diesel (motor manufacturers, IIRC?) There's some clever stream-of-consciousness word substitution there from her name to her aesthetic, or vice versa.

    Continuing the theme would suggest a "Portia Patrick" somewhere in the pun etymology.

    Now that I Google, Porsche Diesel is a failed, out-of-date brand abandoned in favor of modern hybrid models...
