Where did you get the impression he can't sense Maggie? He can still send her silent orders, even if she's been unable to respond to them up till now.

I bet five quatloos that this is misdirection and that if Gobwin Knob is attacked it will be through the dungeon by Marbits. I've been waiting far too long for that particular shoe to drop.
I think you mean Gobwins.
It could go either way really. Barbarian Gobwins have been replaced by a suspicious number of Marbits. Maybe Charlie's using Carnymancy to make barbarian Marbits pop instead of Gobwins, or maybe he's paying the Marbits to croak any Gobwins they see.

When we here in RL have a country with massive air-superiority with matching weapons power, matchless communications (and not just to their own troops, but able to gather in the communications of your enemies too) and superior reach (Which is the same as Move in Erfworld, right?) are they not considered all but invulnerable?.
How is Parson supposed to protect his own kingdom/ruler at the same time as attacking a guy who must have a scary powerful ability to concentrate his forces onto anyone attacking him?.
That comparison isn't perfect, and Gobwin Knob has a pretty powerful airforce of its own, even if half of it was destroyed in the recent battle.
