Spec: Eventually we will see Siphy or one of her descendants/successors (depending on whether she has kids) will end up in Britain and leave the Book of Gud in the Cave of Yffi. Torgamous was warlord of Mercia, which was an Anglo-Saxon kingdom in what is now England, and Trent is a river that runs partially through Mercia.

I like this spec. Not sure if the details will pan out quite that way, but I definitely think Pete left that tidbit about disguising a spell's nature for a later heist movie type reveal.



It feels like there could be some sort of shell game going on with the three books, and/or the torn pages.

I'm eager fr more clues and herrings!

The "You gave yourself to me" line, which probably explain how the Book was able to absorb Siphaniana, reminds me of when Gwynn finally accepted the help of the book to fix her eyes (and her scar (and grew a few inches))

This might be the point when She truly "gave herself" to the book and why Farhan was able to take over her.

Here is Gwynn telling how Farhan proposed to give more of himself to her:

Now if we recontextualise this with what he said in the last update it doens't paint the best of picture:

And in the Dimension of Lame there was Lady Gwynn of the Book. So far Gwynn has kept herself "safe" by either acting subservient or using Cappy Bo to avoid Farahn. Now she has to face the music... It would seem that Farahn has managed to manipulate each Servant of the Book to get him that much closer to... ...what end game, exactly? And then they eventually defy him and end up getting sucked in. Gwynn is responsible for momentarily freeing K'Z'K - but I do not think that she has furthered anything that would help Farahn. I wonder if he's already asked her to do something that she is not willing to do. Is that why we are reaching this climax now?

It might just be that the book of Rother Nioce wasn't as extreme as Farahn in payment demands.
