Sizemore, Maggie, and Wanda stand behind the table with their hands linked. All three are surrounded by a violet nimbus. One of the floating illumination globes falls to the tabletop.|||

- ^ "Total Player Kill" -- the entire adventuring party is wiped out.
- ^ "Sorry, Charlie" was the standard punch line of the StarKist Tuna commercials featuring "Charlie the Tuna", whose self-professed "good taste" was always judged not good enough to meet the company's standards for its product.
- ^ "Rocks fall, everybody dies." In continuing Parson's above mocking of Charlie with TPK, 'Rocks fall, everybody dies' is a common way for GMs to inform players of a sudden cataclysm which wipes out all of the PCs. Often appended with the phrase 'No saving throw,' to indicate that the players have no means of escaping this doom.
- ^ "GG" probably means "Good Game". (It may also mean "Got To Go"; however, that phrase is more commonly rendered in leetspeak as "G2G".)
- ^ Recalling his previous thoughts that he was "doing the Wizard of Oz thing" and merely dreaming that he was in Erfworld, Parson repeats the words Dorothy said as she used the magic slippers to return home to Kansas.
