Previous TBFGK 83 Next TBFGK 84a [edit]

Panel 1

Long shot of Parson looking out the bay window of the Tower of Efdup, with Maggie standing near Stanley's desk behind him.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Maggie... I have a lot of questions for you.

Maybe enough to keep us talking 'til dawn.

Is that gonna be a problem?

Panel 2

Closeup on Maggie, who bears a somewhat suspicious, cautious look.[edit]

Maggie: Simply order it.

You are the warlord.

Parson Gotti: Yeah.

And you're the Thinkamancer.

But I don't know how Thinkamancy works.

Panel 3

A wide view of the command office. Parson turns to face Maggie, who stands at attention a body length away from the desk.[edit]

Parson Gotti: So you tell me.

Do you need sleep to function?

To cast?

Maggie: It does help, Lord.

Panel 4

Over-the-shoulder of Maggie standing in front of the desk. Parson sits in Stanley's chair, and sets his sword hilt on the desk.[edit]

Parson Gotti: All right.

Sound: creeeak

Parson Gotti: Then tell me when fatigue starts to be a factor. That's an order.

Maggie: Yes, Lord.

Panel 5

Over-the-shoulder of Parson sitting at the desk, turning the hilt over in his hands. Maggie standing at attention opposite him, stone-faced.[edit]

Parson Gotti: First question.

And most important. Can you help Wanda?

Maggie: Well.

I can try.

I can't guarantee she will recover.

Panel 6

Parson is leaning over the desk, his Bracer arm on the desktop. Behind him, the chair has the appearance of some kind of gargoyle - a large maw, two fangs, squinty eyes, and a strange Omega-shaped crest of horns. The upper expanse of the chair outside the face also give the impression of wings, though they do not stretch out any great distance.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Try. Hard.

That's another order.

Maggie: Yes, Lord.

Parson Gotti: And d'you know what happened to her?

Panel 7

Closeup of Maggie, gesturing with her left hand as she speaks. She seems more relaxed and matter-of-fact, even a bit bored.[edit]

Maggie: *sigh* Lady Firebaugh is quite a proficient Croakamancer. But as a Thinkamancer, she is a novice.

Talented, perhaps. But a novice.

Parson Gotti: You mean she booped up the mind-control spell?

Panel 8

A distant view of Parson sitting and Maggie standing at the desk.[edit]

Maggie: Suggestion spell, Lord. There is a difference.

And I am sure she cast it quite competently.

But when such a spell breaks, there is a kind of backlash.

A cord which snaps.

Panel 9

A hypothetical scene shows Jillian holding her hands to her head and screaming.[1] An echo image of her body suggests violent shaking and/or total disorientation.[edit]

Maggie: A good Thinkamancer can protect herself from damage. Had I been the caster, the object of the spell would have borne the brunt of it.

This would likely have croaked the unit or left it incapacitated.

Parson Gotti: Really.

Panel 10

A closeup view Parson, his elbows on the desk, his fingers interlaced under his chin, a menacing scowl on his face.[edit]

Parson Gotti: So something like what happened to Misty.

...and the Foolamancer.

Panel 11

Maggie stands at attention, looking as if all the air had rushed out of the room. Everything is still, and Maggie is palpably alone in the large room with her angry superior.[edit]
(There is no text in this panel.) [edit]

Panel 12

The view shows the command desk from over Maggie's shoulder. The red desk bears a face like a bulldog or a gremlin, with two yellow eyes and wrinkled, grinning features. Arms behind her, Maggie seems to slump a little as Parson stares at her, his chin resting on his clasped hands, his sword hilt on the desk in front of him. Through the observation windows we see the horizon and the night sky.[edit]

Maggie: Fatigue has begun to be a factor, Lord.

Parson Gotti: Yeah, I bet.
