Definitely George Harrison- he runs just like in Yellow Submarine.

Furthermore, since he is following Parson instead of opening up the scroll, i'd say he's not there to attack. I think this is where the Great Minds come in like a third party, making their move to take over Parson's plan.

Wow, Janis is finally backing out of her support for Parson? First time we've seen her waver at all. Nice to see that there's someone even more determined than her. I suppose it makes sense it would be a Predictamancer.

So I think that's definitely not Jeftichew then. He's not going after Stanley, and he's not doing anything even remotely Carnymancy-esque. That makes him most likely George Harrison, and that scroll does not look like its a nice thing for Parson. It's a shame. I wanted to see the Stanley assassination attempt. Oh well.

Sizemore has to collapse that tunnel FAST! Shouldn't be too difficult if he reacts quickly though. He's good enough to be precise.

Oh, and Janis and Marie really need to step off of that patch of grass.

Awesome update. Loving every page.
goodmorning

It is because you ass-u-me that the one everybody hates is Stanley. And it is not.
Queen Bea was not horrified by Stanley. She was horrified by Wanda.
So if "the other caster" is Jeftichew indeed, then his target is likely to be Wanda, not Stanley. And we know where Wanda is, right? That's right where Parson is heading to.

How much does Jeftichew (?) know, exactly?

Parson is possible target, but that depends on how much Jeftichew knows about him. For most Erfworlders, it's possible that Parson doesn't even register on the radar, since he's been behind the scenes while Wanda's been the one out being all hot and spooky and OBEY ME. Then again, Jeftichew needed to know when/where to wait in ambush -- I suspect Charlie could be feeding Jeftichew information.

At any rate, regardless of his objective (Parson or Wanda or general anti-GK mayhem) he's got to pass through Parson, so there's going to be a fight probably. It's entirely possible that we're in the situation where Jeftichew has one target in mind (Wanda or Stanley), but has offered to take out Parson (for someone like Charlie) as the price of doing so.

Edit: Seems to me most likely source of timing/location information for Jeftichew is either interception of Maggie's message, or a Predictamancer.

Idea!! what if instead of going after Parson he is going to go through GK's portal and hit GK from the portal room. that scroll knocks out everyone in the portal room but the caster. Then goes for Stanley.End GK and everyone goes barbarian. Check sir.

Bummer, I was waiting with bated breath to see I my tinfoil hat was strong enough. Well, win some lose most I guess.

Obviously the mystery caster has no particular feelings one way or the other about Parson, he simply heard "cue the Benny Hill music" and gave chase, compelled to do so by forces outside his control.

I don't really see how the Magic Kingdom can be considered neutral at this point given their treatment of Gobwin Knob. Wanda can't go there anymore for fear of being murdered after all.

That makes perfect sense.

That couldn't have worked. When a ruler croaks without an heir, everyone outside a city disbands, and everyone in a city is frozen in time unless under attack. The only reason Jillian & Stanley went barbarian were because they were heirs when their ruler and capital fell. Stanley has no heir, so croaking him would just end the side.

Well I hadn't posted here since newer forums were instated, so my previous account was lost. But who cares about that? No one, that's who.

Anyway. What if the caster is following Parson in appearance only? Say someone were in dispute with a powerful cabal of casters who lived in the MK and, I don't know, all thought alike. Those casters are untouchable because the MK is neutral. But what if that someone knew that Parson was going to be passing through and sent a caster to follow him to appear to be going with him? People would think exactly what Janis thought: that the MK was being used as a staging ground for war. Even if he weren't really with Parson, as long as people thought he was, there would be chaos. Then war would come to the MK and it would no longer be neutral. Then that someone would be able to send forces there and attack that pesky cabal he hates so much. Just my own tinfoil hat theory,

My first thought was 'What if that's Charlie?"

...but I don't really think it is at all, because why would Charlie risk himself ever?

I get the impression, that she didn't think much about how their plan would unfold,
and all the implications. She sounded a lot different when talking to Sizemore...

Also, how did the caster following Parson get the information, so that he could be there,
ready with equipment at the right place and time ?

I can see that coming only from the TgMtta, or maybe from Charlie if he intercepted Maggie's message.
