    My guess is that this Rasputin-looking guy was hired by Charlie.

    Well, Vanna is a girl's name, it's not Bowie, cause Bowie would look like, well, Bowie. Jeftichew appears to be the name of a circus performer with hair all over his face. That leaves Spenser? No link to George Harrison whatsoever from Bea's side...

    Where was Jeftichew mentioned? Link with Harrison is through his looks mostly (facial hair and uniform) and he does have his mind set on Parson.

    That was in reference to the idea that he's one of Bea's casters, but she lists her casters. I know that Sgt Pepper Harrison is Harrison, I was just running through Queen Bea's casters. That's where Jeftichew is mentioned.

    What can be one of the biggest threat for Parson?

    Of course, Stanley messing with his planned moves.

    But, that apart, Maggie is very worried about the situation. I wonder if she knows / suspects who's the caster following Parson.

    Maybe Jojo could ally with Parson, if he finds that Parson's answer fits his philosophical idea on Fate (unlikely, but who knows?).
    Or he's about to banish Parson from Erfworld ("Get back, Get back, Get back to where you once belonged...").

    ...or maybe, he can free Parson from the Duty toward Stanley? This, would be interesting.

    Unlikely. He's one of Queen Bea's surviving casters, sworn to serve royal sides only. Whatever plan he has in mind, it's most certainly good for Jetstone, and ergo. bad for Parson.

    Plus he's kinda creepy.

    I know it's very unlikely: if I had to bet, i would go for the last option I presented.
    Still, we couldn't dismiss it at all... Bea's casters were sworn to serve royal sides, but i don't know if duty and orders from a no more existent ruler still works, and "jojo" lived for some time in the MK, where this war is seen in a very different way.
    But of course it's unlikely (and IMO unsatisfying from a narrative pov).

    Even if Jojo isn't subject to Bea#s orders or duty, he still lost all his friends to GK. That should be enough an incentive to fight against Parson. I like the idea of giving Parson free will and break Stanley's control. That'd be interesting.

    Not really--he lost all his friends to Queen Bea. It was her committing suicide that caused her entire army to cease to exist.

    I think it'd be even funnier if he gave Parson free will . . . And Parson kept fighting for Stanley anyways.

    You mean a bizarre adventure like being teleported into a world suspiciously similar to a game session you were just about to run for your group, and having to come to terms with the odd rules by which it lives and dies?

    Seriously, you think anything erfworld can throw at Parson will out-bizarre being there in the first place?

    I think Jojo's intent is to ask that question, anything else he does will be frippery. Because that question is one that's been raised since at the very least the inter-book text updates, and really goes to the core of what Erfworld is about as a place, bringing that to the fore of Parson's mind at a critical moment might just be... interesting.

    So now we know that Parson, should he somehow manage to escape the Magic Kingdom and Jojo in one piece, is in danger of being gallantly back-stabbed by a stack of stealthy knights. I have trouble picturing stealthy knights, but nevermind that.

    Actually i think they were referring to the warlord specifically leading the purple dwagon attack. Which in this case would be Sylvia

    frankly I rather do not care for her anymore... she was fun when her only attraction was the imagination of the fandom, but i feel as though she has overstayed her welcome.

    It would be amusing if the next page were him accepting, followed by an "UN-PLOT" sound effect, followed by THE END.

    And that's it. Erfworld ends there.

    I'm sure Rob said at one point that Parson's friends (the ones he was playing the game with when PLOT occurred) would be further involved later in the story--could it be that he refuses this offer, so whoever's working against him decides to try and get another perfect warlord to counteract him?

    I could even see Parson accept, but not now. Not when he's fighting (and leading) a battle... He's a gamer to the core, too proud to flee from a challenge to his mind's skills.

    Jojo giving up the scroll is probably contingent on using it right then. Otherwise I doubt he'd have chosen such a pivotal moment to offer it.
