    Erfworld has assault rifles and records? I knew it. This is all an elaborate fanfic of Revolution X.

    I wonder if Parson comes across a copy at some point... it seems like the sort of meta-knowledge he always enjoys...

    Looks like finally some more people besides Trammenis get it. Or at least we are finally shown those people.

    Also, Paige Turner calls herself Warlady and not Queen. So thats been cleared up.

    Now this is an interesting development. What just happened would be considered something blasphemous by many. The idea that no one is truly free and that all are just pieces on the board of varying value. Parson somneeds to read this book.

    Some sort of Robe which is slitted for more ease of movement? Or a dress? High heels would fit more with a dress.

    What I enjoy about Erfworld is found in this update. It is a stretch of the world we see from a perspective I would never had have thought would happen.'The world has expanded, in concept and in geography. We have the exploration of what the Erfworlders know of words we use in our universe and our wisdom of our physical world is then overlayed into their fumblings towards their own worlds self awareness. As such, the revelation is a surprise. I also get a sense of well thought out foundations to it, there is a logic shape to this - not a logic that I see in advance, but in hindsight. It fits with what I know. (More or less - I don't want to look too closely in case I see cracks and gaps. I want the magic of the Erfworld universe to continue to delight and entertain me.) Lastly this page shows new characters speaking about concepts that reveal something about the frustrations that popped units must feel when they reach a level of self awareness. The characters are ones you can love because their frustrations and futility are feelings you can hold as well.

    Stretch, Surprise, Logic, Delight and Love. All in one page.

    Oh, did I mention the stunning art? Sumptuous colours and relatable character poses? I might mention them next time, but today it's all about the writing.

    Actually, he is one of the few people in Erfworld who should not need to read this book. He should already know who the true enemy is. He did at the end of Book 1. Though to be fair, Charlie can be quite distracting.

    1) They know about children
    2) They know about records, as in the music kind
    3) The "authors of scripture" are liars, and Fumo somehow proved it.

    To my reading of this comic, it is heavily implied that the "authors" are not the Titans. Or at a minimum, not the titans as they represent themselves.

    Ok, this update kinda confuddled me... way back in book 1 I seem to remember Wanda having been confused to the concept of a 'child' https://archives.erfworld.com/Book+1/47 ... but here we have two Erfworlders who understand what "children" are? so which way is it? do Erfworlders know what children are or not? or is it that only certain sides know what children are (as in they are 'environmental mobs' like the flinchworms in book 4? https://archives.erfworld.com/Book+4/55)?

    The title of the strip implies that Noah is a walking dictionary. Why he is a walking dictionary or how that dictionary has entries that are meaningless in Erfworld is another question. It could be a signamancer power, although so far it would be the first mention of such a power...

    Most Erfworlders won't have popped knowledge of what children are. The primary difference here is that we're dealing with people who understand Signamancy. Signamancers can derive true meaning from Signs, and words are one type of Sign. For Signamancers I presume it would be a particularly contentious Sign because it's a concept that has no real place in Erfworld's system. It would be akin to finding something in Stupidworld that inexplicably broke all the laws of physics but which you had definitive proof existed.

    Paige seems to be grappling with the idea that she lives in a world whose scope has been intentionally narrowed. Concepts like children or democracy which have no place in Erfworld but which still exist as True Signs in regards to Signamancy. It would be like something from the outside of Plato's Cave stumbling inside and revealing to the prisoners how artificial their manufactured existence was all along.

    But she also styles herself “Ruler,” and not “Overlady.” So maybe not as clear as we might like.

    Someone knows about children. My first reaction was that Parson's presence was corrupting Erfworld.

    About scriptures.

    Myself I'm a religious man, and I wonder about the "solutions" others pose to problems in their writings. Erfworld is so... immersive (I think is the right word) that I can't help but wonder at each solution presented to the problems as they appear.

    That being said, I've suspected for some time that "Titanic Scripture" was... well, false! If I were in Erfworld, I'd be wondering, nigh pouring over them, not because I'd believe them, but because it'd provide HUGE amounts of context to what the royals (who appear to be favorably presented therein) believe themselves to be.

    But, then again, who are the authors?

    Also, I believe that this "King Archibald Type" book is a book she has already written and published, not the one concerning Fumo. She is already "famous" for her writing.
