Perhaps so, perhaps not. Maggie was ordered by Parson to help Wanda recover from her own Thinkamancy based ordeal, while we don't know the extent of her aid, so Wanda could've been out for much longer, meaning that the tunnel forces that were uncroaked to GK's advantage would've been non-existent.
Maggie helped to contact Charlie and Ansom.
And it's possible, had Maggie shared out the protection, all that would've happened was Misty, Jack, Maggie and Wanda could've all been out. Maybe not dead, but 3 casters down in the position GK was in (Jack was taken by Stanley when he was messed up, so more messed up probably wouldn't change much) wouldn't be a good situation at all, even if they could recover.
But in the end, who knows. This is the way it turned out. Unless Rob and Jamie want to make "What if?" arcs when Erfworld is completed in it's entirety.
Speaking of Misty, I wonder. Misty might be the first Erfworlder to have been intentionally buried instead of just waiting for the body to disappear. I wonder if that changes the normal rules on bodies disappearing...then again a volcano was dropped on her resting place...
Right, I'm going to stop now. I always feel like my posts have pure condensed stupid in them and I end up not posting them if I put too much.
Tell me your greatest strength, so I will know how to undermine you; tell me your greatest fear, so I will know what to make you face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, that I might deny you.
