Panel 1

Overhead shot of Artemiss, Parson, and Downer talking and sitting around a Foolamancy campfire outside the Temple of the Thinkamancers. Artemis has taken off her helm and put it on her log seat. Downer has likewise removed his gauntlets and helm.[edit]

Countess Artemis: We must view this as a siege, Chief Parson.
This is our castle.
We can stay here safely, and for an indefinite period of time.

Parson Gotti: Because the mob won't attack here.

Count Downer: They may attack here.
We've certainly drawn up a plan for that, which you should review, Chief Warlord.

Panel 2

Closeup of Downer, he looks somber as he speaks, the shadows of the Foolamancy fire create an upside down shadow on his face.[edit]

Downer: But if the Thinkamancers defends us as they've pledged to, then no conceivable force of casters could take us. They have too many tricks to render a unit powerless.

And we have too many arrows.

Panel 3

Artemis sits calmly, with her arms folded in her lap as she sits on a log. The Foolamancy fire lights her and the red trees behind her.[edit]

Artemis: You can never have too many arrows.
But my point is that we are under siege.
Heavy siege.

Whenever we leave the Temple area, we are badly outmatched and outnumbered. So we should do that as seldom as possible.

Panel 4

Parson and Downer are sitting on logs in front of a Foolamancy fire. Downer has turned to face Parson, he's leaning forward as he speaks. There's a tent behind him, and the red leafed forest outside the temple is in the distance.[edit]

Parson: I know. That's why I'm sticking around here for a while. At least a week.
But I want to go talk to Jojo.

Downer: Have him come here.

Parson: The Thinkamancers won't let him in.

Downer: Ask them again.

Parson: Not an option.

Panel 5

Closeup of Parson's face, he's looking over to an off-panel Downer with a critical expression.[edit]

Parson: I've already made 'em break their rules once this week.
They were not happy to have Bunny here. And that didn't go too well, either. So it's not a good time to push them.

If they kick us out, we lose our "castle."

Panel 6

Closeup of Artemis' face. She's looking towards an off-panel Parson with slightly raised eyebrows.[edit]

Artemis: Well, I won't lead troops into the Carnyvale. Sorry, but I would have to refuse such an order.
We don't know what attacks and traps the Carnies might spring.
That is their castle.

And I hear bad things.

Panel 7

A column of Decrypted is marching from Portal Park along the road leading to the Glade of the Hippiemancers. Downer is on point, sword unsheathed. Parson follows just behind, with Sizemore, Maggie and Ace following close behind. Behind the five is a column of 21 or so Decrypted infantry including some archers.[edit]

Parson (off panel): "All right. Fair enough.

So we just need a second castle."

Panel 8

The column arrives at the Glade of the Hippiemancers. Leonard is leaning on a large, multicolored potted plant. Janis and Jojo are holding hands, waiting to greet the arrivals. Downer approaches Jojo cautiously with his sword drawn. Parson looks down at Jojo ambiguously, with a hand on the sheathed sword at his waist. Sizemore is meeting Janis' gaze as he hangings back a bit, with a small smile blossoming on his face. Maggie looks at Parson. Ace stands stiffly at the back, fists clenched, glaring at Jojo as if he's just hoping he tries something. There are a pair of Hippiemancers looking on at the meeting. A pair of snakes crawl around in the grass. There are a three Decrypted pikers and an archer behind Parson and co.[edit]
Parson (off panel): "I'll find us one." [edit]
