Okay, here (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0015.html) we've got a view of all of Parson's RL friends

Now, here (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0113.html) is a couple of shots of Ansom's council. I'm sure you can find better, but I couldn't find any off hand.

So, we're referencing panel 7, where you get a clear look at the RL gaming buddies of Parson.

Panel 2, in the 'foreground', he looks a lot like the first guy. Black chick is also in that panel. The next buddy is the Sofa King guy. Then a... Marbit? He did discuss marbits with Parson a page or two previously...

Madness induced by too much caffeine and not enough sleep, or more than mere coincidence? You decide.

"Marbits" is pretty clearcut. The correspondences of Erfworld characters to Parson's gaming group is a bit more of a stretch, but I can see it as a possibility.

There's a lot more similarity with Team Stanley. From left to right on your real world pic, you've got Stanley, Wanda, Bogroll, and Sizemore.
