Possibilities are covered by Mathamancy. Fate by Predictamancy. If you were right, it would be Natural Mathamancy, not Ntaural Predictamancy.
There's no basis at all for this conclusion. We already know how flimsy syntax, and the meaning of words is, in this world.
If a battle is a possibility, then it's possibility is a unavoidable fact, true in 100% of all cases, and provisions must be made for its possible occurrence. This is not a probability, but a definite reality. Or were you trying to imply that turn orders are not assigned by natural predictamancy when battles are possible but not 'fated' to occur? This is not completely unreasonable, but falls under the question already asked, "does natural predictamancy simple partition turn orders, or does it also forsee the inevitability of conflict?'
She would be spotted by the enemy and allow them an encounter of some sort, all too close to her own territory.
That is hard to argue against, but Im holding out for the possibility that Jillian is just being pessimistic. If I'm wrong, that means that predictamancy is crazy powerful and influential, and drops atomic bombs all over any kind of concealing magic. More specifically, all sides know at the start of every turn about any concealed activity which will later be revealed.
