The Mansion of E :: Part Five: Mechanisms in the Dark
In the last panel Rosemary is referring to this.
Sylvester Minkeybeen's book was previously discussed here.
As hinted above, this is Sylvester's ancestor Ludwig.
The Sneeches were given a brief physical description when they were first mentioned.
Sylvester and Rosemary heard about Skibble here.
Rosemary and Sylvester glimpsed the uninteresting growth here.
Audra's Hot Zone poking experiment and its aftermath were discussed here.
Yes, I meant to spell "pirated" like that. Yes, there are twelve books on the shelves. Eva's Skipjack career was discussed here. "Lo the Plow.." was reviewed here.
An aside/explanation: I am at best an indifferent player of actual chess, but I have always been fascinated with all the beautiful/elegant/crazy board-designs that people come up with, along with the numerous "fairy chess" varients.
Sylvester discussed Tasks here.
The horse is eating his way through the "Mansionland" equivalent of dollar signs.
Rosemary's vision comment refers to this.
Rosemary has mentioned "Edwird" a few times, but hasn't yet detailed much about him or their (platonic) relationship beyond the fact that he owned, yes, books, along with a Warboard set, and pencils. A vision of the man briefly appears here; he's the one with the hair.
For once I'll show some mercy: Agatha is Sylvester's mother's older sister. She has not been previously explicitly mentioned.
This is a Dornbeast; Rosemary and Sylvester met one way back at the very start of the strip.
Since it was questioned, the appearance above of the word "hir" is not a misspelling, but my small attempt at promoting a useful gender-neutral replacement for "him/her" or "them". I've used it before in the strip, once or twice. No, I didn't come up with the word, I just think its real-life use is a good idea.
Happy/Sad New Year 2011 !
Le Tree was first visited by Rosemary and Sylvester back here.
All of the folks in the last panel have appeared previously; Nevus is on the cast page, and Mimsy the Gnoll has been with him all day. Mulch the Trog appeared way back here, when I was still trying to figure out what Trogs actually looked like. Spatchcock the Eyebolt was in this same office when Sylvester and Rosemary visited. And Frag the Gnoll has appeared a couple of times as well, but.. honestly.. it's not important enough to dig out a link.
