Sorry, you're right. Near Pompeii, not near Mokhadun.

Woo! We got a visit from the Artist himself.

I wonder what Siphaniana eats on her long journeys. And how she travels. Maybe she takes money from people. It would be really practical if the book had a hunting spell.

Page of binding and unbinding.

I could almost, ALMOST, empathise with him, in his desire to restore Siphaniana's mind and pinned down most of his evil on his upbringing as a king and being told he was a chosen of gods. His care for her seemed genuine to the point he would even make her pass over his own ego (unable to hold his word to kill Gwynn when she was possessing her body, making it seems like he only threatened her in the hope she would get her mind back) and it seemed Siphaniana actually loved her back, but now...

Either the bug twisted his mind and made him even worse than before, or he was always like this and Siphaniana would have set herself to a big fall and an awful life, had she not be whisked away and Mokhadun not fall. Or maybe that extend of care only ever applied to Siphaniana and nobody else. Who know?


Siphaniana had a pretty bad and short life after she returned to her time anyway and it was deserved because she tried to release K'Z'K.

Siphy asked the same question of the book, and got no answer. Comic from 3/23/21.

good to know i'm not (completely) crazy for wondering this still.

Farhan, actually. Maybe she had convinced herself she could release only him, or just didn't care...

After Gwynn has teleported, Lord Poopy Pant say "Look where she is on the globe" and Farhan recall that they are near where they left the page of binding and unbinding.

Please let me know if this belongs in the spec forum, but.... I’m a little confused about why pages have to be ripped out (with whatever magic will keep said page torn out) instead of using the bind/unbind spell page. Could anyone clarify?


Because they actually plan to rip the page of binding out. Because it could be used to “undo” the Book of E-Ville.

It's still a bit unclear why they either can't or don't want to use the spell of unbinding to remove itself from the book. Either Quint's death magic prevents the unbinding effect of the spell from lasting, or there's another reason. In fact, Quint wanted the scroll destroyed, which implies it can be destroyed. Also not sure why they didn't do that. Unless the same protection circle that helps them remove the page also prevents its destruction.

Correct. That hasn’t been explicitly stated. I think I know what it is, but that’s for the spec thread.

i think at this point it's intentionally vague on pete's part. see his reply pointing out how siphy had asked the book the same question but didn't get an answer.
