    Whatever happiness is, it certainly isn't waiting in extreme anticipation for three days. Or is it? Lillith's mission is complete and the tension is higher than ever!

    Oh dear. Doesn't look good for the refilling of the treasury.

    I'm guessing that that portal really does admit everything...

    So Charlie's portal may indeed work differently.

    Parson had better act quickly. If Charlie has any sense, he will obviously go after GK's most important units, people they cannot afford to lose. The only loophole I can see in the contract is to "conquer" GK into an empire.

    On the one hand, it seems likely that Charlie will choose to claim Lilith. On the other, things are looking up for Lilith's survival. Seems like Charlie definitely has Carnied his portal to allow things other than casters through. I don't think Archons can pass through any portal, but I'm definitely starting to think they can go through CC's.

    This will no doubt put to test the ideas that
    A) Decrypted are without worth, and so could be exempt
    B) Wanda has worth beyond 500,000 schmuckers, and so cannot be claimed
    C) Stanley, as ruler, cannot be claimed (and may also be protected by an Arkentool attunement increase in value)
    D) Parson may be able to ignore attempts to claim him
    E) Any unit with great enough loyalty to GK or anti-Charlie sentiment may be able to turn back to GK immediately

    Interestingly, Sizemore isn't covered by any of these.

    Charlie's chair looks familiar...

    Doesn't it look a bit Dalek to any of you? Like Davros' chair thing?

    I hope Parson is faster at analyzing contract law than he is at analyzing guns.

    I wonder if Charlie's claim will be open to negotiation. (...in Gobwin Knob's favor, that is.)

    Indeed. If that happens, I'm crossing my fingers for her to pull an Ossomer and break away again.

    Come to think of it, we've never seen a feral Archon, have we? Could be quite the phenomenon.

    Also, little chubby lady locking and loading ftw.

    I guess the Monday update will probably tell us how claims work. It's interesting that Jack said that Charlie would present a claim, instead of just claiming units. Perhaps that means that GK will have a chance to review his claim and counter-offer it?

    SOooo Wanda? She's the one I'd claim. Provoking counter offers is good.


    Is Parson playing stupid as a literary device to explain the contract?

    "On time" isn't early. ;)

    And yeah this is a real pickle. Kinda surprised Jack had assumed Parson knew what would happen with the contract. Considering that he's literally an alien from another universe and that he knows nothing else about Erfworld except what he's been told. C'mon Jack. Step up your game. :D

    If unit transfer works the same way for Charlescomm as it does for GK (and that's a BIG if), review of the claim makes sense. Even with a massive buffer in his treasury, there is no WAY Charlie would want to leave open the possibility that GK could immediately claim his Fox Force Fivers after, say, an accidental spraying of bullets into a mass of GK infantry. That would be instant regicide & game over due to not thinking ahead.

    Well. Now they have a quick way to test if Archons count as casters. Decrypt the one they have. Veil her as Parson. And send her through. MK might get nuked though with those standing orders.

    Ah, but the claim must go through. The plot demands it!

    Well, I guess we know what material harm is now. Numbers. There's always a balance. So, I'd imagine that, judging by that, the All Weather Rain-ments do not cost money to make. Hence why destroying them didn't break the contract.

    And he's also the best way to get GK out of its current financial situation. If they were to lose him, performing a Dirtamancy/Flower Power or Moneymancy caster link would become much more difficult.

    Still too many variables to isolate.

    I wonder if that dome/airlock around the portal has something to do with it. It could act as some sort of blocker. But yes, first the golem , and now this. More can go through Charlies portal then can go through other portals.


    I am surprised that we actually got an update from Charlies point of view. I thought that would be something that would never happen. It is interesting now that it has.

    And Lilith has seen Charlie. And if Charlie claims Lilith, which he might, then it is possible that she becomes one of the FFF'ers. It would make an interesting storyline. GK would then need to face Liltih before they face Charlie, and we as readers could slowly learn more about Charerlescom and Charlie as Lilith learns more.

    It's a good thing it doesn't sound like Charlie gets to pick whatever he wanted without Parson getting a say. Otherwise he picks Artemis and the rest of the Decrypted guard, and immediately assassinates Parson.

    If he picked Wanda, I don't know what would stop her from joining CC< and then immediately turning barbarian.
