3 random thoughts...
-In couple of occasions, rankers and other people said to baam : whatever you need to know or whatever you want.. u ll have it at the top of the tower ?
But what do u guys think about that ? Is it a myth? And what top of the tower are they refering to ? No one not even phantominum ( however u want to spell it like) has reached the top as far as we know.... But people affirming it seem to know what they r talking about...
-The other thing im wondering about is :
are people in the tower : "human" ? They dont seem to age a lot ... Is that because of shinsoo? Or is that just the talser user univers? ( since someone living alone in a hole like baam for all this years doesnt seem Possible ....)
-last thing is about clearing lvls ... How do people that cleared a lvl travel between them ? I mean for rankers u r tested , then u go up... But whatsup with people that already cleared those places ? In some instance it seems that its pretty quick to go through like koon going to a lower lvl for the right hand of thedevil...but sometime like yuri she uses "shortcuts" through the middle area, that seem to take forever ? Why wouldnt they just go through normal way? Maybe i m just confusing myself on my own , the sens of time is akward in tog wich i dont find displeasing but i do find it intriguing ..

1- by the top of the tower they refer as the actual top of Zahard's Empire, 134th floor.
It was not explained yet, maybe everybody can make one wish to Zahard... but I do believe it as a myth, I think they instigate the regulars to get there because they can find more valuable people in the climbing. As one get on the top, he proves his strength and gain fame/opportunities to work for the empire/another families, then they would get the means to have their wishes fulfilled. Off course, that's my opinion on the matter.
2 - Yes, they are kind of human. The age thing is because of the Shinsoo, I can't remember the source, I think it was in SIU's notes.
3 - They travel between floors through the middle area, using the stairs. Yuri was trying to get on the second floor without being noted by the ruler noting. Koon traveled using a vehicle. But we know tha Lero-ro spent 5 years to get on 77F, so I don't know why he took so much time... maybe he was walking by foot without the guide and got lost on the stairs
And about lero ro , yes it does sounds strange to me ... Would u then need to pass through middle area to climb up has a ranker ? Or can u pass through some
Already open gates in the inner tower...
Anyhow , if lero ro , takes 5 years to go back to their new mission 40th floors down , to spy on "baam", i guess we gonna have a problem with this current arch since i m pretty sure lero ro and te wingtree will be key to solve the baam-fug-blackmail-old Team dilema ...
Ps: writing from iphone = :/

I doubt he'll take 5 years, this time he knows the route and he has to travel 28 fewer floors than last time. He may still be able to get it done in 2 years.
I share my personal view on the question about the human nature of people in ToG world. The whole story can be told without clearing it. Even more, despite of the fact the word 'human' appears in the story many times, it doesn't have the same meaning than within us (humans can't do the same things people do in ToG world to talk about the shinsoo argument). So, I choose to believe nothing concrete about that question:
I share some other favourite fanarts:
- BB(djejstorldi0) http://cafe.naver.com/inutero3334/75476 He drew the scene with Baam and Rachel looking at the stars (Love it!)
- Magpie drew sat young androssi. Pretty nice, isn't she?
- I have lost the references of some of the pics, so if someone can provide them I would appreciate it.
And some others:
This artist has also great lines. Pretty expressive and clear:

-but i think tog is great for actually asking those questions and giving those hints, those mysterious leads ... the fact that it's a maze like story with many legends / hints and guesses , make you think and try to understand better ... wich make the whole serie even more interesting it s a little like Lost 1st season or inception ... and ofcrouse it gives depth to the world.
In fact if : Hunter X hunter , Naruto , Lost and Hack Sign were able to have a son : it would be ToG ...
- thanks for the nice fan art ( some of those link are broken though ... )
In my opinion, Tower of god is in a league beyond Naruto. HxH comes close but ToG's universe is so huge that even HxH can't compare but they do have many things in common. I feel like it's the only thing i'm reading that won't deceive me no matter what happens.
I also wonder what SIU will do once ToG finishes..
Pretty nice fanarts you posted there ukimix, i really liked Yeon's and Androssi's ones. There's still 2 more days till the new chapter comes out
its my finals week ... lets just give any kind of treatment to all those patients and trust in shinsoo
yea i just said naruto cause : families = leaf villages , blood skeletton of baam = Susano etc..

the artworks were pretty amazing especially the one with yeon. And yes TOG seems to be in a completely different league in comparison to other mangas.. save breaker and Feng sheng ji
So I must read this Feng Shen Ji.....
