    Default So, did Parson break the rules of reality? Is Erfworld sentient?

    Parson being able to say **** you is as I suddenly was able to fly.
    Erfworld probably has a "god," some force which creates the world, or something.
    Or, maybe Parson has turned into Neo and is the "One."
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks for the awesome avatar goes to Djinn_In_Tonic. Thanks!

    The Titans? Definitely.

    I...think he's a less powerful version of Neo with an army and two arkentools (if he can shut the tool up and make him listen). That's rather destructive.

    And I think he's booped off the Titans as well.

    Nay. Parson is in his own way a Tool of the Titans. But now he is no longer just a Tool... What might this all mean?
    Deus Ex Machina - refers to the ending of Greek plays where an actor playing a Greek God is lowered onto the stage and solves all of the problems. It is not a problem solved by a Chekov's Gun, Skill, or Armory. It is not an @$$ pull or whatever solved the plot in all those twilight novels. it is not characters acting out of character, or a twist you don't like.

    Words have meanings. You can't just change meanings to suit yourself. Otherwise born carbon fligaments Xyeon palar.

    IMO Parson was bound by "natural thinkomancy" to obey Stanley, not swear, etc. It has already been stated that natural thinkomancy *can* be broken, sort of like a suggestion spell, it takes willpower/motivation.

    "Players" are those not bound by thinkomancy to obey others.

    Here is something to think on about the Titans. Might the titans also be "constructs" of Erfworld just as the people are? And there is someone off in the shadows that really started everything off?

    Wanda warned Parson that he would lose so much more, and I think it has already begun.

    The sword was never the source of the ruthlessness. It was a placebo that encouraged him to embrace what Maggie noted was already inside Parson.

    The censorship was likely an intentional hurdle of Erfworld's to steer Parson towards ruthlessness and train him.

    It angered and annoyed him, and finally he tossed aside his prop sword that killed none of the mountains of dead surrounding him. He angrily cursed Erfworld and believed that he had gained a degree of freedom. Erfworld let him curse, so that it could start training him in something new.

    The titans just took off his training wheels. Nothing more. It has always been Parson's beautifully ugly mind that has been the nuke in Gobwin Knob's arsenal.

    Who knows for sure? Parson's a unique unit. He's a bit of a question mark at times.
    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    He croaked one unit... the ram thing.

    The ram thing was croaked by its rider, who was mindcontrolled by Maggie.

    Nah, dude's sword was up, then flew into the air when she hit him with the blast. I'm pretty sure it was some kind of damaging blast as he had blood on his face afterward.

    So his stats now read "2nd [assuming he didn't level up] level chief warlord, special (includes censorship override)"?
    In Dungeons and Dragons, racism is frowned upon, unless you're playing an elf. Then it's an interesting character trait.

    I do think Parson killed the "ram-thing" and the dude maggie shot at was David Bowie, as he had a lighting kind of thing painted in his face, it was not blood.
    But on the topic, Parson did not break the rules fo reality, I mean.. what is reality, what is it made from? Who decided the rules, he don't know. Maybe he realized that "Liberty" ("Freedom") is a word fed by human dreams, meaning that no one can explain what it is but there is no one that doesn't know what it feels like.
    He realized he is not a pawn, nobody is, they just kind of want to be in someway (fear?), and that thinkamancy nudged it forward

    I hope you guys understand the message and ignore my bad, bad, english.

    This is the best explanation I have heard so far. Nobody post anything without reading this again before posting it.

    I think it means that parson is starting to brake the chains that confine erfworld. If the titans have a part in this, then they probably hope to use Parson to change the face of erfworld. the whole world is about to change, and it is up to Parson to decide where it will go.

    Where did you get the idea he's second level? His LEADERSHIP score is 2, but I don't believe his level has ever been mentioned (or if he even has one).
    He that knows little repeats it often.
