"Billions of dimensions"--so, NOT infinite. That means that there is a reasonable chance to "correct" every dimesion, so long as you can assemble a large enough team. I'm betting that the less primary dimensions are easier to change than prime, and that the Tirinites worked their way to the center of the light bulb. We'll see.
This makes me think of what we call here the "Droste-effect". I don't know if the expression is known in English too, but somehow it is the same: a sub-level that influences the higher level which in it's turn affects the sub-)level, which, in it's turn, does or does not influence the main level, which...
This can go on indefinetely... with an unlimited number of variations... which makes the final result... incalculable?
@Guesticus: That's quite a compliment! Thank you (Abby (Mirby) appreciates it)
@Ganurath and @Dragonrider: It flows uphill, downhill and radially - consistent with hit the fan theory.
@Lurker314: You got it...
@ems: Thanks - proud to know that Merceneiress has readers who are familiar with percolation theory!
@Hank: Yes! May the 4th be with you too! Playing some Star Wars Battlefront 2 to celebrate...
@SoftSpot: Dang, again really proud that I have readers that are friggin' smart!
@Guesticus and @Dragonrider: I didn't make it explicit yet, but yes, they are currently in Dimension Prime (Sariel hints at it in the previous page where she says the time syndicate in all other dimensions have already been destroyed).
@Merceneiress: seems like we are still missing something, that's why thought maybe this wasn't Prime Time, butt, like said once before (somewhere...), not gonna argue with the Creator, just explaining reasoning behind thoughts :)
@Merceneiress: It would seem you answered my question about what happens when Hiz Leacherness dies. Next question is how do we stop this from repeating itself ad infinum? Because somebody is always gonna try to rule everybody else.
never too old to learn...
@Guesticus: I hadn't heard of that theory yet, but somehow I grasped it already by logic reasoning on from the basic explanation from miss Tattoo-face. Thanks for giving me the name, it's explanation I found is really enlightning.
@Dragonrider: If I read things correctly, the answer to what happens is there are thousands of billions of pages of this comic we have not seen where all that shit gets worked out. (Yeah, I understand that's trillions. But as someone who tries to write legible code, I understand sometimes ones statements are clearer if one shows the math at least a little.) It's possible Merceneiress will eventually post all of them, but I won't live to see it. Even if they started posting one per second right after I hit submit. First, it takes me longer than a second to read one of these comics. Second, at that rate, it would still be tens if not hundreds of thousands of years to the finish. And third, the vast majority of that would be so utterly repetitious...
@Someone's Ed: "the vast majority of that would be so utterly repetitious", which you can ignore. Which leaves the one 0.000000000000001% which really is important. (and maybe I forgot a few zero's here), which would result in only one or two really important pages. And I guess you can handle that? ;)
@Guesticus: Except that if her war is successful in the standard way--with violence and killing--she will have committed murder lots of times, because the murders she will have been avenging will have never occurred.
@E Hines: and how is that any different to a campaign? o_O
Wait, you mean to say, she's just going to go up to those nutters and ask them politely to please not kill her anymore?
Gonna be a short campaign (one in which the nutters win and it's completely 'Game Over!' for Tirin and Mirby)
