Thunt said on the livestream that Fumbles is now the most powerful seer in the world. I asked about the consequences of Minmax pulling Fumbles out before the imprints were fully absorbed, and he said that would be explained in upcoming pages. But "most powerful seer in the world" still applies, and I think that implies fewer limits on what he can see.

"She saw but misunderstood, the name is not right"

This could also refer to the name of the clan, Cryptic Fall. That sounds like the name given by a seer, and it could be misunderstood, just like Dies Horribly didn't end up staying dead.

Also, "the dwarf cries no more" could be this: http://goblinscomic.com/comic/09172005

Thunt did not treat it as a spoiler when he said it. It's clear from what we've already seen that Fumbles was in touch with more imprints than any teller in goblin history, and that he's spouting more prophecies than anyone we've seen. That Fumbles is a very powerful seer is something we're supposed to understand at this point. Thunt's remark does make that much clearer, but it's not a spoiler.

That there will at some point presumably in the near future be some discussion of the consequences of Minmax interrupting the ritual isn't really a spoiler, either. I would have been shocked if the story had just gone on as if nothing abnormal had happened. If he'd actually told us the contents of that discussion, that might have been a spoiler, but he didn't.

So there will be consequences for ripping Fumbles away. I was hoping the team had gotten away lucky.

Does Fumbles know if he would have died had MM not done so?

Most powerful seer in the world... so a prestige class of some kind...

I don't know if there will be meaningful consequences. Just that there will be some discussion of the matter.

I feel like this line can be interpreted to mean not forgath, but biscuit the wise orc. Two coins "refering to the saying two cents were Biscuit always gives his opinion in convoluted ways, to an unknown dwarf possibly Kore, possibly Forgath, the another leg lost would also make sense as Biscuit lost one leg to grem, useing a finger from mr. fingers, Biscuit was also quoted as wanting to go home, and mentions alot of kliks around were he grew up, my guess is that we will see the transparent mouthed orc again, and that he may have something to do with bringing down, or fighting Kore
Don't let the Kliks bite

I wonder if Kore is in some sense dead, or undead, or animated, or partly dead. He seems to be made of dead people.
The old name was Twocoo. The avatar is the scariest thing in Wizardry I, circa 1981.

"Bowstrings break, they are unreliable."

I haven't seen this mentioned yet, buuuut...

... what if Bowst's name is actually Bowstring?

He hasn't played much of a part yet other than comic relief, but he certainly doesn't seem like a reliable character. If that DOES refer to him, I wonder what breaks him, and what the consequences would be.

"She saw but misunderstood; the name is not right"

I'm wondering if "the name is not right" refers to the fact that the Kins of the MoM are nicknamed Ruby, Sapphire and Onyx?

IIRC the name refers to the nearby maze of waterfalls Dies woke up near.

Just curious.

So Thunt did share something about his announcement with Patreons, but it's not clear to me if this is the reason for the page delay.

did patreons sign an NDA? Or is more a nonspoken rule not to share with others what is shared with patreons, lest the value of being a patron diminishes?

In this particular case the Patreon post says:

"It'll be publicly announced very soon."

So, it would be impolite to say anything just yet.

I agree. Announcements should be made public by the author.
And personally, I would not consider patreon news to fall under any NDA, but very impolite to share non-the-less.

Same. I learned my lesson very quickly that dropping hints is not appreciated and forum Goblinites prefer to just wait.

:lol: well, quite :D

I don't mind knowing that <something> has gone up on the Patreon side of things because it lets us know that we'll probably get an update soon, but I have no particular desire to know what it actually is.

Just a sidenote for those not following the other "news" threads: Thunt finished the G:AR art: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1300&p=237984#p237984

And I'll copy the last tweet of the series of five:

Edit: just for the records: panel 7 reminds me of the fabled Goblin Shaken-Unfairly.
