So now we know when book 5 takes place.

And the tower immediately agrees with someone accusing the ruler of bad taste.

But that also means that the tower also negated much of Byrn's value in his offer, if the Tower can do the job as well.

Good way to start your relationship with your Temple ;) But she seems like exactly what the side needs as usual. And about as likely to get along with her side as Shirley and Templeton.

Looks a little like Ishtar?

Seems to me there's a missing word, probably an "it" or something:
"this room looks like [it?] just fought off"

Rebecca at the Well?

Edit: Never mind, Shai got it :P I couldn't think of anyone else who'd be carrying a water urn :-\

Again with the Presidential/American Signamancy, I love that the Cabinet is literally in a cabinet XD

And I can not believe I had to almost see "Make Generica Great Again" with my own two eyes D:

And I absolutely love how Byrne, well, burned the entire side's Signamancy, and it turns out it was the Ruler's own taste XD Which, honestly, is currently another great Stupidworld parallel, as the United State's current President is known for his gaudy and tacky sense of "taste" and "class". Like if the Vatican started opening up brothels.

And while I'm loving the new Tower, I'm assuming the changes were done by her, and not Westinghouse. Which I'm kind of disappointed in, I was hoping he had been swayed by Byrne. I guess it was too much to hope for that it would have been that easy to change his mind.

I feel like the whole city is in need of a good adblocker. I wouldn't be surprised if they find an enemy like "AdbloQ" or something.

I do wonder, sometimes, at the separation of lookamancy and signamancy, but not too often.

Also, I'm thinking that the side has a healomancer?

I think the Genericans will call this era “Post No Bills.”

Hmmm... "your side is the laughingstock of the world, so much that even your city agrees" vs "signamancy is a skill so ubiquitous anyone can practice it, even your city."

Quite the predicament our caster is in. :lol:

So to maintain balance, they should subtract ad?

So much for my bet that the changes'll happen at pages 3 and 4 and most definitely not two.

Also the font of the Doctor's ad matches that of something of Doctor Pepper (Well, I guessed it was from Dr Pepper on got proven right)
Spoiler: show

Notice the D and the P.

(Just ninjaing before someone else points it out)

(Judging by the lack of tips, you folk clearly consider Doctor Pepper to be less obscure/exotic than Chinotto)

So I meant to post this to the previous one, but it totally slipped my mind when I got back from work. But I really hope Byrne makes some spectacularly bad stealth checks at some point. After all, he is always [the] Notist.

Well, that didn't take long; the tower's first words are that she's already ticked off. Last time that happened, it involved an Arkentool getting yoinked like a football. I wonder if this corpulent Ruler or his staff are going to be as flexible or cooperative as Queenie was.

How many walls does the city have? Is the city a pentagon? I can't tell.

Charlescomm, your battlespace solutions provider™, has a branch office in Generica. You can see it below the giant Doctor Plotz sign.

Are those sailboats in the background?
Is that a leisure activity in Erfworld? Honestly, I haven’t seen much in the way of leisure activities yet.

So you're saying there is a doctor in the house.

Knowing Generica's foreign policy, they're probably saleboats.

I think perhaps "a question from a guest" in the second paragraph should be "a question to a guest".

I don't know about leisure, but we've definitely seen boats used for battle, like with Duke Forecastle, and the battle between Carpool and TV.
