    I find Earth to be much less forthcoming when I demand changes of it. Seriously, 1.6x10^-19? Isn't that a bit excessive?

    Considering anything I write semi-professionally does not have a single swear word (unless you count "damn" as a swear word), I was surprised to be taken seriously.

    Hopefully it does not repeat itself in the future, y'know. Would kind of take away the strength of the moment away.

    ...I just realized I must add another URL to my daily comics visit. That blows, man.

    Suddenly, I am much less worried about Stanley possibly being able to disband Parson.

    Wow.

    Most powerful utterance of a curse word in the history of webcomics, anyone?
    'I shall be pleased and proud to have been the first who completely enjoyed the fruits of his writing, just as he wished, for my only desire has been to have people reject and despise the false and nonsensical histories of the books of chivalry, which are already stumbling over the history of my true Don Quixote, and will undoubtedly fall to the ground.' -Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote (Edith Grossman)

    First time posting here. I must say this story was a very interesting one, with Parson's trying to figure out what's going on, and using meta-knowledge to overcome his problems.
    And the ending, with him just simply giving the finger to that world, was awesome. I'll be checking the new site.

    Well, there was Black Mage's one-strip bomb in 8-Bit Theater. Although that was powerful in terms of the webcomic itself, which refrained from using the word for hundreds of strips and did it when Black Mage lost the rulership of Hell.

    Then it used it a second time and it kind of made the first lose impact.

    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.
    Personally, I just like the idea that this is a statement of individuality so powerful no one's even allowed to repeat it.

    Nice way to end the book. Now that Erfworld is moving, I guess I'll have to add another bookmark to my favorites list. : sigh :

    Just posting to say congrats to Rob and Jamie on completing this first major milestone, and a well-made completion at that. Even though I've vocally disagreed with some of your artistic decisions in the past (not like it matters what a stranger on the internet says about anyone's work) I and I think most everyone on this board will commend you on a job well done.

    Best wishes for Erfworld.com, for the dead tree version of Book 1, and for a successful Book 2 and beyond.

    *Great* ending. I really love this story. I cannot express how satisfying it is to have completion to a story arc I've been following for a couple years, and have it be actually really good. Rare, precious stuff. THANKS and CONGRATULATIONS to the authors. Looking forward to buying the book with my tool credits.

    The sword... huh. Maybe not such a good idea.

    Rich: That was pretty much the exact, correct thing to say.

    I'm going to miss having two stellar comics on this site; still, forward and onward!

    Yeah, this is already the plan. There should be a "The End" page sometime next week or so, depending on when the guys finish making it.

    Awesome guys

    I'm really glad you let us go on this journey with you, and will most definitely pick up book one when it's out.


    Mr. Burlew, any idea on who will be trying to fill Erf's rather large shoes?

    No plans at this time. Right now, I'm content to let Erfworld stand completed for a good while before considering what (if anything) will be added to the site.

    I really have got to say that it was a nice pick. It's going to be a little sad not having the two strips on the same site anymore.

    That was a great ending to Book 1. For a second I almost thought he was about to kill himself there to see if he gets out of this "dream".

    Also, this final page raises the questions about a universe which censors swearing but allows for wholesale slaughter. This statement seemed to have silenced those detractors from the story who objected to the prevalence of violence in the comic during the battles.

    What this says about the nature and Rating of the story, I don't know but it is a fun one and I don't intend to stop reading it.

    It came early too, didn't it? Still say that if the censor didn't exist, he could have just dropped a bunch of f-bombs and defeated Ansom.

    I've used this joke thrice now though, time to hang it up.

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.
