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.

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?

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.

Parson Gotti: I dunno.

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

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

Wanda Firebaugh: Parson, she will not attack.

Even if she finds the wounded, she won't.

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.

Sizemore Rockwell: And I'm not that confident.

I am sorry, My Lady.

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.

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?

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.

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!

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.

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.
