So we know Goodmitton shall be destroyed, and olive branch shall be Wanda's chief caster. No way out fate will win. But preferably it will be brought about to favor Wanda and co. Seems impossible right?
Step one: Capture Branch and a capital site.
Step Two: Spin off a side make Branch chief caster and place Wanda under her. Order everyone to disregard all of Branch's orders.
Step Three: Move Wanda's former overlord out of the garrison, sell other units to Wanda's new side. BOOM! Wanda's old side has fallen and is now barbarian. (We know sides can fall and leave barbarians behind while still fulfilling a DOOM prophecy. See FAQ and Jillian for more details.)
Step Four: Sell all units back to former king, make new side called: Resistance is futile, not even fate can stop us.
Both parts of the prophecy have been made true. GG.
P.S. My theory of how fate works for the record. The future isn't set except for a few details. This would seem to be impossible, things so often have close deciding battles, and gambles, if those are not set how would we know the outcome? Answer: fate makes it happen. (And from Wanda's birth and the "cost to be paid" part I suspect it works like Luckamancy, to some degree stealing the high numbers it needs) So fate will somehow, someway make it so Goodmitton falls. If Goodmitton's plan includes all the dictates of fate, fate won't care who wins and now Goodmitton can win. Indeed since Wanda has unfulfilled predictions on her she can effectively ignore any attack that can't capture but only croak. (Fire, arrows, ect.)
Step 3 might not work - we don't know if Jillian became a barbarian when Faq fell, or when Banhammer died. Wanda's dad might need to die.
