Previous TBFGK 53 Next TBFGK 55 [edit]


Panel 1

Sizemore and Parson sit across from each other at the table in the Situation Room. Sizemore is examining a black and light blue bracer built for someone Parson's size. Two books -- one open, the other closed -- are also on the table, with a discarded and empty take out package sitting on the right. Parson gestures with an open hand as he speaks. The open book appears to have the image of a computer keyboard (complete with numeric keypad) on it.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Mathamancy is what, again?

Analyzing probabilities... predicting outcomes?

Sizemore Rockwell: Yes, and the raw calculations of that work.
[edit]

Panel 2

The Situation Room has a gray cast again. The gray walls are the background for Sizemore, who is smiling pleasantly as he speaks to Parson, whom is seen from the rear. Parson is taking back the bracer.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: Which this object seems to do. Instantly and effortlessly.

This is a very powerful item, or maybe artifact.

Parson Gotti: I think it's mostly using "magic" from my universe.
[edit]

Panel 3

A close up of the object under discussion -- the bracer. A reverse image of Parson's calculator watch suggests that it should slot into the bracer easily.[edit]
Parson Gotti: "It just looked like a sleeve of hard plastic til I saw it had a spot where my calculator watch would snap into it." [edit]

Panel 4

Sizemore gestures and smiles as he discusses the Mathamancy Bracer. Light from above reflects off his bald pate.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: There are Mathamancy-dependent kings and overlords who'd pay half a million Shmuckers for that.

Maybe more.
[edit]

Panel 5

Parson has fitted the Mathamancy Bracer to his left forearm, and is pushing some buttons. He is still sitting at the table, with the same gray stone background as earlier.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Mathamancy-dependent?

How do you run your side on math?

Sizemore Rockwell: You pair your Mathamancers with some Luckamancers.

Parson Gotti: Oh.
[edit]

Panel 6

Looking up from the table, we see Parson on the left and Sizemore on the right. Parson points his left index finger at the ceiling in the gesture of "I got it".[edit]

Parson Gotti: Oh! Right.

Predict the crucial battles... then tilt them in your favor.

Huh!

Sizemore Rockwell: Very powerful combination. Like our Eyemancers.
[edit]

Panel 7

The three aforementioned Eyemancers stand chanied to each other at the Eyemancer Table robed in green, blue, and orange. Parson and Sizemore are in the distance on the right of the panel.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Yeah so can you explain that, please?

What is this link-up?

Sizemore Rockwell: *sigh*
[edit]

Panel 8

Sizemore is shown in a close-up, on the left of the panel.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: It's a trick that only Thinkamancers can perform.

A caster's will is subsumed into a... kind of a psychological alloy with the Thinkamancer.

The joint mind they form can cast spells no single caster can even comprehend.
[edit]

Panel 9

This close-up of Parson places him on the right of the frame, with the left side entirely gray background.[edit]

Parson Gotti: The downside being that the casters lose their will...

Sizemore Rockwell: Their sanity... their individuality...

It's a risky and fragile spell, especially with three.

Four can't even be done.
[edit]

Panel 10

Sizemore has lost his pleasant smile, as he discusses serious business with Parson. Sizemore, on the left, is lit from behind. Parson on the right is seen fromt he rear.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: Talking to them as individuals can break that spell, Parson. That may croak the casters. Or leave them useless. Or, have no effect.

Parson Gotti: I'm sorry.

I didn't know.

Stanley the Tool: Yo Hamster, I hear you have a plan!
[edit]

Panel 11

Stanley strides confidently into the room, wearing a red robe. The hallway behind the arch is bright white, with Wanda's figure silhouetted in the doorway. Above the doorframe are two glowing blue lights, resembling eyes above a huge gaping mouth.[edit]
Stanley the Tool: Hey what's the turd guy doing in here? [edit]
