This is a Bet concerning trimancer links. I have 35/100 quatloos available, first come first serve.
I bet that it is possible for a participants in a trimancer link to contribute more than one caster discipline.
I think that this is possible because casters can be skilled in more than one discipline, and can have a class they can be referred by other than one of the 24 disciplines, that incorporates more then one discipline. Such as Janis is a "Grand Abbie" (and not a Florist, Signamancer, or Datamancer), and Issac is a Headmaster, (and not a Thinkamancer, Lookamancer, or Foolamancer). I believe this would enable such a caster to contribute multiple disciplines to the link.
Bet flavor 1: What I just said. This bet is even money.
I win if: There is a linkup where one caster contributes more than one discipline, or
Rob Balder specifically states this is possible, or
It is authoritatively stated in comic/text that this is possible.
(09/22/2013) GWvsJohn's caveat: Unless it is specifically stated otherwise in the comic/text/balder, In a case where Charlie (or another dish-attuned non-thinkamancer) is shown to contribute thinkamancy and other discipline(s), the thinkamancy will be assumed to be from/enabled by the arkendish and not contributed by the attuned user.
You win if: a caster skilled (adept level or better) in 3 linked disciplines (all eyemancy, all hippymancy, ect) joins a link and is only ABLE to contribute one discipline.(does not count if only one discipline was needed) or
Rob Balder states this is not possible, or
It is authoritatively stated in comic/text this is not possible.
Bet is annulled if: Book 4 begins without bet being decided.
Bet flavor 2: nonstandard linkup. Has better odds. I bet 3 quatloos to your 2 quatloos.
All tricaster linkups thus far have been 3 disciplines, one of which was a a thinkamancer holding it together.
I bet this will be exceeded in some way before the beginning of book 4. Either by the above bet, by a 4 person linkup, by using the dish as a router so the third person in the linkup need not be a thinkamancer, or something else.
I win if: There is a nonstandard linkup before book 4 begins.
You win if: I have not won by book 4.
Lilwik (09/22/2013): 10 quatloos against a nonstandard linkup in book 4, matched against 15 quatloos from me.
GWvsJohn (09/22/2013): 50 quatloos against multi-discipline caster linkups, matched against 50 quatloos from me.
