I'm glad we're on a new page. That cake picture kinda creeped me out. Didn't one of the W's have two diacritic marks on it? (4th word of the long speech)

Just under 40N. Plus, the beanies don't exactly seem to be inviting them to join.

Most definitely. But perhaps an undersized one, as we can see what is (presumably) the top of the first level completely in-frame, just barely on the right edge.

What's the smudge between the tower and the temple? An underground river they've diverted to the sea? They've drawn a break in the land just above it too.

Nah, the Beanie just erased a part of Cueball's drawing where he pictured the slope.

IIRC, that's about the right latitude. But it's a bit too far from the sea¹, looks like 300+ km as the raptor flies. There are some big lakes closer by, but even those are 100+ km away.

I doubt that what we see just right of frame is the Beanie HQ. This is just where their observers bunk while on duty. While the drawing isn't necessarily to scale, I think it will be a bit of a walk from here to the HQ.

I think it's a giant bath plug. Emergency measures for when the sea eventually reaches them up there. They've been preparing it for mips!

I agree, I don't think they would've made a point of drawing it as if to say "we come from this thing" if it was right next to them.

Makes sense. Cuegan thinks they are at the top of the mountain, but apparently they aren't there yet. And the Beanies plan on going there.

Beanie guy expressed surprise when Cueball referenced the sea. They know too much. Time to take them to the Ministry of Love. Who goes to room 101 first?

So one part of this comic has consistently irked me for the last day.

The Beanies have the building skill required to build quite reasonable structures (also apparently pyramids), and they also have telescopes. Cuegan seems obviously from a contempary time period also.

So why the **** are they all drawing on the ground with sticks like cavemen? Someone bring out a piece of paper and a pencil. Writing implements are not a new concept.
Madness takes its toll, please have exact change.
