    Congratulations on a book well done.

    Although, seeing how wonderful is evil Wanda, I was pained to see the sword of ruthlessness go. Such great potential... squandered. Just like that other artifact. You know, the One Ring.

    Good job, and looking forward to Book 2!

    So Erfworld forced Parson to do what Earth could not - take control of his own destiny. Impressive. And what will he do with his newfound ability to defy natural law?

    Hmmm ... dead raising, lake of fire, raging against the gods ...

    Parson the Anti-Titan?

    If anything, I'd say that may have been the least gratuitous such use in a comic I've ever seen. Very well done ending there. (I never thought an f-you could be such a powerful final word of a storyline.)

    Yes yes agreed

    I've just decided to re-read Erfworld. DEFINITELY buying when it hits print.

    Well done. Rob and Jaime, you guys have done a great job. I eagerly await the next chapter.

    I also can't wait to see who will be the next to stand on the shoulder of the Giant.

    Parson vs Charlie I expected for the next book. Parson vs The World? Wasn't on my radar.

    Excellent Ending.

    I'd just like to thank, and congratulate, the authors. Reading Erfworld 1 has been a brilliant, fascinating journey. I'm very much looking forward to Chapter 2.

    It really was a stellar first go; and from what I understand picked up very good recognition for a nascent webcomic when it was younger.

    I doubt we're going to have quite as much fun with the next comic hosted here, but I'll keep an open mind.

    Ah, darn. I was hoping to see the look on Stanley's face when he got back and saw... everything that was wrought in his name.

    But it was a great story and I look forward to reading more of it. I admit, I've been won over. Some time ago.

    I was surprised Parson was able to get a curse word out. It was a good illustration for how he was able to wrench his status from piece to player.

    Did you hear that? That was the sound of the point going right over your head.
    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.

    You're missing the point.
    The use of the word **** is signifcant as each and every other time Parson cursed, we were greeted with a merry little 'boop'. An affect of the universe our Protoganoist found himself stuck in. Aftewr his long and harrowing trial and battle, he has a conversation with the universe there, and devlops a will strong enough to activly break the rules.

    It is possible to use vulgarity in an artistic manner, you know.

    I don't see it as an attempt at Dark and Edgy, but rather just that.
    Art.

    ...

    ...

    It's a real shame flaming is forbidden. A real shame.

    I think you have entirely missed the *point* of Erfworld. It IS dark and edgy, if you don't like it DON'T READ. And the point of the word is to demonstrate Parson finally breaking free.

    It appears the next pages will not come until fall.

    But we do have mini updates during the summer

    I had to resurrect this old forum account to say thank you to the authors of Erfworld for this fantastic conclusion to a truly excellent webcomic. I hope that your Book 2 brings greater success.

    Great ending to a great webcomic (soon to be book hopefully).

    I'm really looking forward to it in print with all the extras.

    I wonder how many other rules Parson may be able to break now. Also, I wonder why he can break those rules now.

    Anyway, looking forward to the updates and the next story line!

    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.
    XD Brilliant. In other words Rose, you're not Parson Gotti.

    1) It is cool and funny when used appropriately, as on page 150. It is only lame when used casually and excessively, as is probably 99% of the modern usage.

    2) Erfworld is dark and edgy, and brilliant in the execution of this motif. Your complaint would only really be valid if it Rob and Jamie tried and failed.

    3) Lighten up.

    Congratulations, Rob and Jamie, on an amazing book.

    While I enjoy many comics (and webcomics), Erfworld is something special. Really quite brilliantly conceived and drawn. Thank you for sharing this achievement with us.

    Well, not sure I've ever joined the masses to just post how awesome a comic was, especially for one as in depth as Erfworld, but here I go.

    That was an extremely satisfying, even brilliant ending to Erfworld: The Battle for Gobwin Knob. I applaud the authors for a job well done, and I eagerly (for again the first time ever) await the publishing of the book so I may purchase a copy. This book has been possibly the best most well thought out webcomic I've ever seen, and without a doubt featured the best illustrations. In short: That was awesome.

    You have it backwards. It's not a cute, happy world pretending to play war; It's a world dedicated to war with a superficial veneer of cute.

    If the Nazi uniform was a pink sailor suit and they ended every sentence with "pyon!" as in "Heil Hitler pyon!" "I do not see why man should not be as cruel as nature pyon!" and the standard issue for German soldiers was a Hello kitty assault rifles, and all the tanks were painted baby blue had a pretty bow tied to the barrel--would the Nazi's have been accused of "trying to be dark and edgy?" pyon!

    It doesn't have to be Nazi's. Do this to any army and it doesn't change the fact that making something cute doesn't change the nature of the deeds.

    The one point made in this thread so far that I agree with is that Erfworld can do what Earth couldn't; get Parson to take control of his environment. If the overall arc had had some visible focus on that rather than this last-minute swerve into guilt trips it might've been far more interesting.

    Other than that, blah. This comic has been trying too hard and not going anywhere worthwhile.

    The whole guilt trip thing is particularly untenable. It's a game world. The people in it exist (pop) for the purpose of fighting and dying. There can't possibly be any guilt involved in making that happen and doing it well. Actually it's downright crazy to suggest otherwise - and I still don't believe a dedicated gamer, put in that situation, would have the guilt reaction.

    Anyway I'll get out of the echo chamber and let you all get on with the praising now.
