    New characters - including Ellie Vance, hmm I guess they are going to secretly brief him about Charlie then - but they are Thinkamancers - why not just send it to his mind?

    Or second thought, they are going to hand him over to Charlie, but want him to act as a double agent for them. Not sure how the hippiemancers are going to react to this.

    Charlie would still be able to pick up the transmitions. Oh, and that is ALYX Vance. Though I would think Eli woudl be more fitting.

    If you go back and read the Thinkamancers' update, their temple is the one place they believe Charlie can't see into. So my guess is that they want to talk to Parson about Charlie in private, and need him in their temple for it to happen.

    They can't tell him why they need him there, because they're afraid that Charlie will overhear if they discuss it anywhere but there.

    (In fact, it occurs to me that Parson's entire reason for being here might actually be something Maggie implanted in his mind. It never made much sense from a tactical standpoint -- perhaps Maggie manipulated him into going to the Magic Kingdom in order to get him to the Great Minds so they could talk to him someplace where Charlie couldn't see? Of course, she seemed opposed to it when talking to him, but that could've just been playing a role, especially if she thinks that Charlie can spy on them anywhere.)

    So you suppose Isaac Sagan there has taken into account that Wanda and Jack and the Arkenpliers are right behind him, about two steps and a portal transition away?

    Could be. But they're messing with the move of the warlord they're supporting, during a critical combat turn, when many things are at stake.
    I don't know their agenda, neither what maggie exactly told them, but i think it can be dangerous.

    The GMTTA have their own agenda (or agendas... Isaac and his companions' agenda seems not to quite align with Maggie's, and there may be other splits in their supposedly-alike thinking), and while it's not necessarily opposed to Parson's, they've got their own purposes in mind for him that have little to do with what he's focused on at this point. Opposing Charlie may be in all their best interests, but I don't think the GMTTA care about the war between GK and RCC2 except insofar as it affects those interests, whereas it's Parson's overriding priority at the moment.

    And they're doing a really bad job of approaching him about it. They're not giving Parson any reason to think that working with them would be any better than working for Charlie. (Marie's equally bad about it... she's trying to push Parson's buttons, but clearly doesn't have any idea where Parson's buttons actually are. Appealing to Duty might work on an Erfling, but just rubs Parson the wrong way.) I think for the Thinkamancers, it's arrogance, not ignorance, though.

    I just want to see Wanda step through the portal and Arkenply Isaac by the head.

    How much danger is Parson actually in here, though? He still has that Staff of Suckage, so they'll have to get it away from him if they want to cast anything on him.

    I think there is a lot of danger; his staff might protect him from one or two spells, but there are over half a dozen thinkamancers, maybe all of them master class or at least high level.

    I think the real danger would come if he started attacking the Thinkamancers in order to stop them taking him away...he's in the Magic Kingdom, and I doubt the other 'mancers are going to take kindly to him hurting their own, no matter the provocation.

    Maybe yes, maybe no. Some of the things she says are spot-on -- she's totally correct that Parson's not the sort of person to leave something half-done.

    Jojo recognized the Staff of Suckage and seemed familiar with its capabilities. I have to assume that the GMTTA know as much, so the fact that they don't seem concerned about it tells me that they think they have the ability to bypass or overwhelm it.

    On the other hand, Parson's not alone. He's stacked with Sizemore, who's a pretty competent, if not Master-class, Dirtamancer, and has Janis, a Grand Abby Hippiemancer, and Marie, who seems to be a powerful Predictamancer, with him. While they might not be on his side, exactly, they might act to defend him if they think letting him do his thing is more in their interests than letting the Thinkamancers take him - which I believe is the case. And, as I mentioned above, Parson's got Wanda, Jack, and an attuned Arkentool one portal transition away.

    Interesting that the other Thinkamancers were able to keep what they were planning from Maggie--guess they're not as closely linked up as was earlier implied!

    I wonder how may honest predictamancer's there are? I mean I'm sure they can't lie to their leader. But ones with leaders can lie and tell anyone that they predicted what they want other people to do. Even one's with leader's can lie to anyone else. And if the person they are lying to is a fatist, they will do what the predictamancer says without question.

    And I think that is exactly what Marie is doing to Janis here.

    On a side note, Rob announced that they "probably won't do more than one or two texts for the rest of Issue 2, which is looking to come to a close within the next half-dozen pages or so".
    For the next strips, let's expect a sequence of cliffhangers...

    I think "Disband Yourself" could be a new meme. :) And it will confuse the heck out of anyone who does not read Ertworld for extra credit.
