Last episode, I suggested Jack was still alive and had cast Foolamancy to hide teh bracer's true answer. I suggested he was not dead.
There was another possibility. But it lead to a bit of information that was not provable, and I didn't want to get into a discussion on it. That info just happened.
Marie Predicted Parson's attempt to use the Scroll, and knew she needed it to be stopped.
So, Jack isn't alive. The one thing we have never seen is what Marie told Jack about his future, while both were in FAQ. Nothing at all on that.
So, now we know that Marie has Predicted it. It is not a stretch for her to tell Jack he needs to cast a spell to hide the bracer's answers, and he needs to do it the next time he sees Parson in the MK. Which he did while Parson was distracted watching Jack's rolling head after faking the portal close. There was absolutely no reason for Jack to waste his last juice on a joke. This was the reason: to stop Parson from leaving ErfWorld. And the reason why it was so hard for Parson to see the real numbers?
A Level 3 Warlord trying to see through a Master-class Veil. I can't imagine the chance was very high of it happening.
So, Jack is dead. We no longer have to introduce any new elements. Everything we need to understand what just happened is right there for us.
Oh, yeah. That's a splendid theory, Kreistor! Except, wait. It's impossible.
Lets look at a few established facts.
-Foolamancers have to be in a hex to veil it.
-Jack's illusions have cut off before when he was incapacitated by arrows.
-In order to mislead Olive, he had to end the illusion giving Jillian vision.
All this points out to me that foolamancy must have active focus on it to function -unless it is crafted into a magic item like the eye books-
It cannot be used as a programmed deception, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CASTER IS DEAD. Even altering the eyebook required him to link up with Maggie, and took time and effort, and further the book already contained Eyemancy. There is basically no precedent for your theory of him altering Parson's bracer on a fundamental level, withou touching it or Parson noticing.
Can we drop the Jack is Mastermind tangent now?
UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
