I don't think Transylvito has a weak ruler. Sure, Benjamin was willing to defy him, but only in extreme circumstances, and it was plainly something shocking, something he was only willing to do when he was sure he had everyone else behind him. In that case, the casual attitude seems to be more of an inherent family trait.So is it possible that FAQ's and Transylvito's similarly casual attitude toward the command structure is the result of casters manipulating weak rulers?

I think twhitt's got it. I was wondering why it was that she looked so strange, even to Wanda. If she's gonna croak, though, why does she care so much about being possessive over Clay?

In other news, the Oracle at Delphi (real-world ancient Greece) was known as Pythia, which means 'to rot'. This was because she was sort-of undead: her body was decaying after being slain by one of the gods. Seems very meaningful when a Predictamancer covering her decay with Signamancy is talking to a Croakamancer.

This is something I'm wondering too. FAQ is probably not a side in this 6 player war, since they are supposed to be a bubble kingdom.
