    And we still don't get to cuss as board members?

    Man, that is such a letdown.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we have officially hit the upper limits of PG-13. Guess there a joke in there since Erf is moving, and therefore can't hit the R mark with another well timed... fudge.

    He won't keep cursing; as long as he knows it's in his power he'll probably settle for saying boop.

    The single curse at the end of this book is a powerful statement of individuality and self-determinism that, in my opinion, has significant artistic merit. It is unlikely that turning off the board filters is likely to generate many such moments compared to the tens of thousands of careless usages per day it will enable.

    So no, board members still don't get to cuss. Write and draw a brilliant 150-page fantasy epic, and maybe I'll let you cuss here. Once.

    Bravo!

    The value of the obsenity is less than the meaning of the soliloquy. The part about not being a gamepeice; but being a player: That is what separates the PCs from the NPCs.

    I think that there is definately some deeper meaning behind why Parson was able to drop an F-bomb like that... and this really blind-sided me.

    This is how to effectively swear.

    Is this a challenge Mr. Burlew? Either way, your post there hit the nail on the head: you were able to say what I wanted to without me knowing exactly how to word it properly, thanks Rich.

    I seem to have the ability to misinterpret the most obvious of meanings and to completely miss the points of statements for no obvious reason. Just a warning.

    Didn't expect that.
    But seriously, /agree.

    Erfworld is awesome, and I've been following it from the begining.
    Much like I buy the Giant's books, I'm more than likely going to be mkaing the purchase.

    Dammit Rich, why do you have to hog all the awesome?

    Actually on topic:
    Wow. I'm not too sure what actually has been going on in Erfworld (I'm going to have to have another archive binge), but just reading this one strip shows that there's so much more than meets the eye.
    Also: I think that Parson deserves the Rory for the most gratuitous use of the word "****" in a comic.

    I was thinking, and the curse, while being a perfect end to Parson's rage against the heavens universe, reminded me of this page.

    The eyestones on the handle are glowing and it appears that magic is being activated/released as the sword sinks into the lava. Is that the 'ruthlessness', 'combat' and 'leadership' gone?

    Or has Parson matured/grown to the point where he no longer has need of the sword to act as a focus for these qualities, as they have now been "awakened" in him? Perhaps, as he continues his development (or as a necessary part of it) he'll be able to keep breaking more of the shackles imposed by Erfworld.

    An excellent final!
    This is foreshadowing some interesting themes in Book 2.

    I would recommend updating with one last faux page, with the erfworld.com url in it, as the newspot with it in it will get pushed down eventually, so future readers know where to go.

    EDIT: Wow, just caught the significance of the page layout.

    This last page, like the volcano linkup page one, is 'breaking' the usual layout.

    That was almost exactly how I thought of the single curse.
