do the gefendur in alderode also bury their dead, like the gefendur of the rest of the continent do? or do they cremate like the ssaelit?
All Gefendur bury their dead. The earth’s seen as Fat Yerta’s flesh, so by burying the dead they’re returning the bodies they borrowed. This makes graverobbing verboten since you’re literally stealing from Yerta, but corpses that haven’t been buried yet are free game for making plods.
Hmm… that’s interesting. So both faiths have reasoning for hating the practice of making plods. On the one, creating a plod allows the body to decay damning the poor soul who once inhabited it, the other is continuing to rent an overdue corpse. After all why would it start decaying if Fat Yerta had not begun reclaiming it? Yet I guess the convenience of plod labor keeps that opinion from becoming too wide spread.
Do Gefendur bury plods after they’re done with them and they’re no longer useful? Though I noticed back in chapter 3 page 28, some plod handlers plan to deal with a troublesome plod by “torching it” in other words not returning the body borrowed from Yerta…
Not that inconsistencies in religious beliefs are all that uncommon. :)
Holy crap. That is a rather hefty “clay pidgeon.” I’d call that more of a clay condor.

There is literally no predicting where this story is going.
Well, at least we already know what’s on page 46.
At this point I’ve mostly stepped back from the “GamerGate” stuff, content to watch this thing unfold on its own. I’m still rooting for them, though, and I think many of the critics don’t quite understand the personal significance it has come to carry for a lot of people.
The way I see it,…
I find it pretty hilarious that people actually believe that gift card rumor. I mean, who would even accept that as a form of payment? It strikes me as the kind of rumor that starts out as a joke but someone who hears it doesn’t realize it was said in jest and spreads the rumor from there.
Behold! The latest in a series of artworks that challenge predefined concepts and definitions! This was created for Kazerad and his mighty quest of reblogging every image of Vivec and Celestia together. What you are looking at dear friends is such an image. To the untrained eye, it may appear to be random strings of characters without even the slightest hint or mention of either being. But, if you translate this code from base64 into image format, you do indeed get a really badly compressed picture of Vehklestia. Trust me!
TL;DR: This is silly. Go read prequel.
I… I guess this does count? It’s very avant-garde, but I guess on some cryptographical level it is still, basically, a picture of Celestia and Vivec.
I don’t have time to run it through a text converter right now. I’m gonna be disappointed in you if it’s porn, though.
Good luck with that when you do, I’ve tried the first few OCR image to text converters I could find within seconds of typing “image to text converter” and got nothing but empty text files as results. Maybe the red and blue markup underlines are messing things up? Or maybe I’ve only tried crappy converters.
mojang pls no
Is sad alright, but it’s not over.
Not yet at least.
And that’s why they’re friends.
You made friends with a duck? Oh you are DEFINITELY in our tournament now.
Nope. He’s very into pymary though; doesn’t play the sport but knows all the rules :)
I keep hoping that Duane, Sette, Quigley, and Matty team up permanently somehow so that Duane can teach Matty Pymary since Quigley outright refuses to teach him.
Current events may push the four (plus Jivi) into interacting more than in just a duel like last time but I don’t really see any reason for them to team up on a long term basis yet.
As far as I can tell there’s no secret big bad evil syndicate aiming to destroy the world that can only be brought down by a rag tag dysfunctional group of adventurers (which is definitely what they’d form if they teamed up). Yet. Maybe.
Duane, do you miss scholarly discourse?
Ach, dreadfully. One of my regular indulgences is a copy of The Standard. I was surprised to see it sold in New Tawhoque but it does take the edge off this unavoidable exile to the dregs.
"What’s the Standard? Is that a titty book? Da’s got one with nekkid ladies and vegetables called Nary A’Carrot he keeps in a frame on a wall’ve the pub. Blokes is sooooo maaaaaad."
The Standard is Kasslyne’s leading pymary periodical. The Aldish edition published all the newest spellburn access phrases, the newest Old Tainish research, articles on the khert and pymaric theory… It might interest you to know that as a younger man I had a few articles published in The Standard myself. It was quite a to-do! One was merely remarks on then-Composer Valentin’s newest filter set, which I found a reckless offering in need of optimization for sultetit outside Hethllot. I say never speak vanhot penned by Hethllot; you’ll turn your own skin inside-out. The reckless blighters so oft fail to recall not all of us have their ghastly
"BORING. I’m scholarly. I just taught you a new word!"
Oh, indeed. Dub yourself scholarly again and I shall paff.
"Har har har. Reckon ya wish ya could, ya man-raisin."
Is there anything besides deep water that could make Galit!Duane pass out during the daytime?
Anything that utterly undoes the khert or pymary will put him out for the count; not necessarily unconscious, but unable to move, speak, or cast. Duane the rug.
For example: When the field spreader inside Uaid is active Duane would collapse in a heap, and possibly smell like a corpse again..
