"Yes, I'd imagine so, Lord," she said, "I expect you have many questions."

"Yeah. First, how airtight is it?"

"Quite."

"Meaning a person's highest level Loyalty is to 'Thinkamancy itself?"

She glanced to the side. "That is oversimplifying it a bit, Lord. But yes."

"Well...putting aside whether or not I'd let them do that to me," said Parson, hunching over in thought. "That should mean we've got a worldwide network of agents to match Charlie's. But they didn't seem to think so."

"Because we don't," said Maggie. "We are all individuals, with our own lives and aims. As Chief Warlord of Gobwin Knob, how thrilled were you to think of me as an 'agent' for the Thinkamancers? No, we cannot issue orders to Thinkamancers attached to other sides, Lord. We do not all Think Alike."

"Yeah, I know," said Parson. "But...it's a place to start. People to talk to. We should find out which of our enemies have a Thinkamancer."
