It looks like this is cancelled, since we don't know if Charlescom or Delkey or Numloch did the final deed, unless you want to extend the bet until the end of Part 2, which is a LONG way away.
Also, I'd bet Bladestorm 25q that Posbrake would survive the story. I accept that he has not and yield the quatloos.
My last bet that applied to this story was with Shai_hulud regarding whether or not Dove was actively trying to help Homekey, whether she succeeds or not. Specifically...

It suggests actively not doing what she was hired to do in order to either gain a benefit for herself, benefit another, or hurt Homekey. My bet is that this is not the case. If Shai_hulud disagrees about the meaning of his/her own bet, I'll be willing to bet based on the definition he intended.
Yeah, my intended meaning was that her original intent was, and is, to con them to gain resources without doing the work she was hired for, either because she has no desire to do so, or has no ability (fraud in other words
). This was only about her original intent though, and if she changes her mind later (say during an attack) that would still in my mind count as her having been a con, just one who did a heel face turn
. Thus the bet is only that her original intent
was to commit fraud, not the final outcome. Does this seem acceptable to you?
I would like to claim this, since it seems unlikely that the story will reveal any duplicity on Dove's part during Part 2, she didn't end with any resources more than she started, and every stated attempt to help has acted the way it was supposed to, to the extent that she was able to control it. In addition, she isn't even trying to prevent Digdoug from leaving in less than a single day, so she's arguably coming out more-or-less even on the Rand that she spotted him without him asking. But, as the bet was about original intent, for which we only have Dove's stated word as evidence, I'll let Shai_hulud decide if the bet has been decided or not.
