    I believe we just passed the 10 page mark until the end.
    5 pages until someone owes me Quatloos, apparently.

    Which is to say, itís 302 pages. Weíve been told that Utterly Dwarfed will be 352 pages, so thatís 50 pages remaining (total, including the online strip and bonus content/chapter pages/etc).

    Not really guesswork, though, since Rich has already provided a rough breakout of the extras.


    * More than 10 and less than 20 bonus comics!
    * Nine pages of author commentary only some readers care about!
    * A map of the Northern Continent that a distinct but in some places overlapping subset of readers cares about!
    * A recap of the story so far by someone who looks a lot like Durkon Thundershield!
    * A foreword by Haley Starshine!
    * Some other odds and ends that fit in the inevitable gaps when it turns out a chapter ends on a recto page but needs to end on a verso!
    * Maybe a preface? I don't know, the person I invited hasn't gotten back to me yet!

    There's a *little* bit of guesswork though, with the uncertainty of how many pages the bonus comics will be, as well as some other formatting things and stuff that may or may not be present. You've seen the discussion upthread of course, but just recapping, I think (IMO) the bare minimum (and highly unlikely) number of non-online-comic pages is 24, which would leave us with 26 online comic pages left. By ella ventic's assessment, there should be anywhere from 39 to 50 extra pages, which sounds like a much more sensible range to me, so that means anywhere from zero to 11 online comic pages left. Since the last online comic in a book tends to be a double-pager, this means at most 10 more updates, probably less, just enough to wrap up loose ends (maybe showing Team Evil?) before the book is done.

    The book is shortly heading off to the printers to make the early December ship date. Also, remember the beginning of Round cover pages.

    Yep, the final strips have always been multi-pagers.

    DCF: strip 120 (2-page)
    NCftPB: strip 300 (2-page)
    W&XPs: strips 483 (2-page) and 484 (3-page)
    DStP: strip 672 (3-page)
    BRitF: strips 945 (2-page) and 946 (3-page)

    This does seem like a trend that the Giant could change if he wanted to, but my personal guess is that it will hold for this book too.

    In fact, I'll also guess that we have fewer than 4 updates left. I was very wrong with my first guess in this thread--initially predicted 16 pages *longer* than BRitF--so let's see if I have better luck trying for the smaller numbers!

    As per the latest update, sounds like you're right. I don't think there's anything else to say about the OOTS proper / Mechane in the current book, so I'm expecting a quick cut to either Team Evil or the two paladins (maybe both at once), just enough to tease some dramatic development that will shape the final showdown and provide for a suitable, impacting splash page to close the book with. So that means either just one more multi-page update, or possibly two if there's additional context to provide (not counting on that, since we've got a pretty good handle on the situation at the North Pole already). This, of course, barring some sort of curveball from Rich

    There we go, another three-page final strip, complete with cliffhanger mystery guests. Love it.

    I was off again with my length prediction--though not by as much, this time! I would try to guess the round breaks, but Gift Jeraff has already done that, here, and his guesses match my initial ones nearly exactly. The only difference is that I was imagining the denouement would be round 10. (It starts with 1178, which hadn't yet appeared at that time, but we knew there would be some kind of denouement, so I set aside a round for it.) Now that we know there are only 9 rounds total, though, I would think that his rounds 6 and 7 are indeed one round (round 6) and the numbers after that shift accordingly.

    The only other variables are in bonus features: how many pages is the map? Will there be a foreword (or, as the books usually spell it, foreward)? Etc., etc. I'll say two pages for the map, "sure" for the foreword, and if everything else remains standard that puts us between 11 and 13 bonus strips.

    That's all I've got at this point. Unless we want to take a shot at the next and final book! "The potential to be even longer," you say, hmm, Rich? 384 pages? 400?!

    Don't throw down challenges your body may not be able to back up when you try to pick up the book.

    Does somebody on the Playground still have the table to post?
