The... "fact"? It sure looked to me like she was debating doing it, and Jack made his portal=sortie maneuver instead since they were coming up with solid reasons *not* to use the eyebook. Hadn't done it yet, and it looks like she won't. [edit: or at least not until after Jack reports back]
I do concur that if it came to a fight, then it looks more and more like the GMtTA are in a much less commanding position than they initially had. No doubt Jack's appearance drove that home to them. If not for Marie's prediction, it would seem like Parson was going to avoid this encounter without a fight.

With the CWL and all casters away, it leaves him with a pretty good chance of success, especially if he's massed his currently-unemployed Archons for one big push.
As already noted- not Charlie's turn. But on top of all that... If Charlie was wanting to attack Gobwin Knob, the time to do it is probably *not* when all their casters and their chief warlord are just a few steps away via the magic kingdom. If Charlie is using his archons efficiently then there are likely only very few that are not earning money or acting as a defense force. Charlie has a nasty army, but it would be pretty reckless to cease his other mercenary ventures, pull them all in to strike at arguably the most heavily defended and fortified city in existence, all hoping in advance for a very, very small window when the casters are merely 1 or 2 portals away possibly 1 minute away or less. It should not be tempting at all for Charlie to attack Gobwin Knob's capital directly even if he could right at this moment in the story.
