Panels: 13
Previous TBFGK 63 Next TBFGK 65 [edit]


Panel 1

Parson, Wanda, and Sizemore have moved to the other table in the Situation Room. They have taken seats on the benches -- Parson with his back to the Eyemancer Table and the others across from him. Stanley remains at the Eyemancer Table.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: I don't see the concern.

It should be clear that the suggestion spell is working.

Parson Gotti: Yeah. But it feels like I'm counting on that a little too much at this point.
[edit]

Panel 2

Backed by the gray of the Situation Room, Parson has a concerned look on his face.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I mean, yes she ditched her complement. But she's still getting way too close.

There is absolutely no way to pull this "veiling" thing, right?
[edit]

Panel 3

Sizemore has an equally concerned look on his face as he explains to Parson. Wanda looks on from the right side of the panel.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: No, you need a Foolamancer in-

Parson Gotti: ...in the stack you're veiling, right.

Sizemore Rockwell: Yes, and-

Parson Gotti: And we can't do it with the Eyemancers linked up.

And we can't cast on the enemy's turn.

Yadda

yadda

yadda.
[edit]

Panel 4

Parson raises his hand to his right temple, as though he is getting a headache.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I dunno.

Turn-based warfare is just... ridonkulous[1]!

I feel totally helpless, just sitting and waiting to be attacked.
[edit]

Panel 5

Wanda shows far more than mild annoyance at those that disagree with her evaluation of the situation. Her mouth is twisted in anger, and her eyes staring with bridled intent.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Parson, she will not attack.

Even if she finds the wounded, she won't.
[edit]

Panel 6

Parson appears unconvinced, and still concerned about how this will play out.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Yeah, well.

Maybe I would have that kinda confidence if I knew how your spell actually works.

Sizemore Rockwell: I know how it works.
[edit]

Panel 7

Sizemore looks downcast and worried.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: And I'm not that confident.

I am sorry, My Lady.
[edit]

Panel 8

Wanda has become very aggressive, one arm out and the other on the table. Sizemore cringes away from the angry Croakamancer as she snaps at him, while Parson raises a hand to try to regain control of the situation.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: You know nothing of the underpinnings of this spell.

Parson Gotti: Hang on.

I'd actually rather hear what Sizemore has to say.
[edit]

Panel 9

In the background, Stanley, still in his red and black bathrobe, can be seen staring at the Eyemancer Table. Above the table are images of the group of wounded dwagons and of the enemy strike force. Based on the scale of the table as seen previously, they are perhaps three or four hexes apart. Parson is in close-up, glancing to the side, away from the very enraged Wanda as he speaks to her.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I mean, no offense. But talking to you can be like, I dunno...

Trying to get directions to Philadelphia[2] by putting 400 quarters into a gypsy fortune teller machine[3].

What's your worry, Sizemore?
[edit]

Panel 10

Sizemore continues to look troubled.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: These kinds of spells rely on the subject.

Suggestions can make her inclined to do things... such as lead recklessly, disobey orders.

She provides her own reasons for these choices.
[edit]

Panel 11

Wanda is leaning over the table, obviously frustrated and angry at being second-guessed. Sizemore and Parson continue to sit.[edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Which she is doing!

Sizemore Rockwell: Yes. But those are things she is inclined to do, anyway.

Stanley the Tool: Hamster, get over here!

Now!
[edit]

Panel 12

From above, we see Parson, Sizemore, and Wanda have left the table and are presumably approaching the Eyemancer Table and Stanley.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: Suggestions like, "turn sides" or "ignore enemy forces" may be too hard for her to rationalize, and cause her to break the spell.

Wanda Firebaugh: No.

She will not break this spell.

She cannot.
[edit]

Panel 13

An enraged Stanley points down at the Eyemancer Table as Parson approaches. The two Casters are off-panel.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: She's over the lake!

She's one hex away!

Parson Gotti: I think you're, uh, officially betting our lives on it, Wanda.
