    Interesting information about the portals and the action figure.

    Who is this screaming "Decrypted Caster" ?

    So at this point, are there are any magic disciplines that can't do a lot more than people think they can? Because so far pretty much every Caster's said about that much.

    I can't recognize the caster screaming, and I wonder what might that spell do, two famous italian mediums names. I wonder.

    The two names Marie intones are a reference to a famous escape artist/supposed "medium". I wonder what she's doing...

    I KNEW there was something around the corner!

    Nice to get some explanation about the portal mess, though. I tend to side with Claud's explanation, that we have no Arkin' clue what could have happened, yet.

    Edit for additional thoughts:

    For all that I don't understand the Prince Albert and Can expectations, with how many times Ivan has said Nope there's the distinct possibility of another occurrence.

    Also, I just realized that these updates are deliberately paired, with the events in the Magic Kingdom revealed at the same time as the events below them are shown as below them. It's an awesome artistic maneuver, but subtle enough to take a bit to catch.

    Shit is about to go down.

    The action figure was probably doing its last sweep of the bunker and mine cart lines before going through the portal. Hopefully the Wonky Wrench wasn't the first thing that the action figure tossed through the portal. Unfortunately, since the action figure is almost assuredly being directly controlled by Charlie, he's going to figure out that Claude and Ivan are decrypted. If Charlie has any assets left in the MK, now would be time to activate them. If the Minds temporarily can't scry because of the new Grand Bargain, they might not be able to remote thread sever.

    Marie's about to do something as well. She's making a break for someone's portal. TV? GK? Faq?

    Jesus, the moment I saw the screamer's face, I had a strong urge to punch him. Something about him causes a gut reaction.

    And here's the rest: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eusapia_Palladino

    So a spell that invokes Signamancy of an escape artist and a spiritual medium. Very interesting!

    That seems to be fairly standard for Erfworld magic at this point.



    Also an interesting thing to learn about portals. All of them have that 'limiter/focuser' device on them that if tampered with does... pretty much what we're seeing in the tunnel. Wonder what happens if they're removed entirely?

    It's likely something to prevent her from being engaged or make her difficult to target/capture. She's making a break for a portal. Time is probably short, she needs to be where she needs to be ASAP. My first bet is TV and my second is GK.

    Yeah, there's a lot going on with those two names. Communication with the deceased. Making objects move telepathically. The escape artist angle.

    It's really tough to say what those words might signify, but I would say Carnymancy and evasion are some of the most likely answers. If it were mere Predictamancy, a Master should not have needed a scroll.

    Speak with Dead would have been a good idea for a scroll if it made any sense in this situation.

    Any feel like by the time this story is over and every caster group gives up everything their own disciplines can do and they held back as secrets Erfworld is just going to end up being a lot like Stupidworld. Parson is going to go back with the understanding that instead of "fixing" or even breaking Erfworld he just made it Stupidworld and they like us are now on their own to what they make of it.

    So, we pretty much have confirmation that every casting discipline can do a lot more than expected, and the people who are in on those secrets theorize ways that charlie can abuse them beyond what they already can do.

    Moving on, we now know that the portal shards are a known phenomenon, and that it's dangerous. It's also unlikely that the doll has left, given the cart's running (unless it took the time to mine the place, and is carting a load of explosives at the base to dispose of evidence, of course)

    Any idea what Marie is casting? Lookamancy, maybe? I don't recall if she was out of juice to cast her own predictamancy, and it's definitely something that alters her sight. eusapia palladino and nino pecoraro are both escape artists and mediums, so maybe it's something crossed with croakamancy? Either that, or something to make her unengageable

    I don't think that's Marie running. I'm guessing she just cast a Lookamancy scroll to make it appear she was running. She throws a veil on herself and lets the duplicate get shot. Then she strolls through the portal unnoticed.

    I think Donald failed his "Spot Check".
