    Season 2, Episode 11 is now live. That brings us to 408 pages, free, online, forever and ever.

    You get freebie content. In return you spread the word. That's the contract.

    Also as always, remember that Disenchanted is for more than just a webcomic. Check out the front page for updates, and explore both the wiki and the maps.

    Lastly: remember that Disenchanted contains themes, language and imagery not suitable for young readers.

    I wish there weren't so few people active in this little Disenchanted community!

    I believe that the value of the vastfolk finger is somewhat magical, most likely to a goblin; the fey will not use it to abet their expression, nor the boggarts their fear-working, nor the pixies their flower-making, and I don't know what sort of spells the clorichauns and brownies are up to.
    A goblin would probably be able to glam their influence into the vastfolk involved, seeing as having the power to harm such a powerful creature so that they can possess an entire finger would qualify as having the wealth necessary to perform a magical act. I'm guessing that through that, the Gobfathers will be able to utilize vastfolk's physical labor while still maintaining the stealth glamour.

    Hah! Yes they did, Kay. Yes they did.


    Interesting theory - and if the gibfathers can control vastfolk, maybe they could capture one? Then they'd have access to a constant source of belief. Maybe that's what Whine is - distilled human belief?

    There's two possible ways I can see this going.

    1) There is power in possession of the finger that the Gobfathers can use to make glamours. Maybe they would become stronger through the consumption of a rare meat, or the bones and skin make finer garb, or they just plain like it (weird sods.)
    2) There is power in possession of the finger that the other folk races can use to make glamours. Maybe the connection to the vastfolk's body allows boggarts to feed off the fear, or pixies fertilize their flower gardens, or whatever the hell the brownies do (I like to imagine that they'd have a culture centered around violence, and that their magic involves synthesizing the bits of other creatures; imagine burning a bastard's ear to give yourself the power to use glamours.)
    You could say that that painting with the bits of blood and skin as a canvas would qualify as fey creativity, but that's a stretch. Maybe a leprechaun can use the bits to write about the vastfolk in their saga?
    Anyways, the fact that other fey races might treasure it gives it value, which means that they can glam when they get it, or they can control the supply of magic goods in the city, which can get them more political power/wealth.

    Like the old saying goes; in Vermintown, first you get the giant finger, then you get the power, then you get the women.

    I reckon the Fey could get some pretty creative carving going on that fingernail, too.
