    Interesting that this battle seems to matter enough for Marie to know what to do. I get the impression that they aren't all this way.

    God she's callous. I really hope her plans end with an egg volley to her face.

    Hardly any soldiers matter. That itself is something that's going to have to get wiped away to fix Erfworld.

    The green twinkle is back...

    So was that a scroll effect or her 'predictamancy vision'?

    Its nice seeing the more obscure branches of magic being shown to have incredibly powerful potential when utilized by a Master (assuming Marie is a Master-Class based on how long she's been alive). Makes me wonder just what other casters are capable of beyond what we'd normally expect.

    Hrm. Is Marie expressing a philosophical position, or is she saying that predictamancy isn't usually this strong because most battles aren't as heavily governed by Fate (and therefore they're less predictable?) Because if Predictamancy was always this strong, I'd imagine ruler would often just order predictamancers into battle.

    (Although another reason why it's so strong here - which Marie sort of glosses over - is that instacroak ranged weapons make it much easier for her to compress her predictions into short sets of instructions that Georgia can follow. If she had to melee every enemy, it'd be a lot harder to pull this off.)

    Maybe, maybe not. Remember what Wanda learned: "Mattering" isn't always all that fun.

    I can't quite tell if Georgia is comfortable or not with these tactics. She likes the bonus, but I'm not sure if she likes Marie. Is she indignant at the end?

    Ah well -- once Jillian shows up, I imagine any conversation will get more to the point.

    Predictamancy is only powerful when something is important enough to allow for predictions, it seems.

    We know that predictamancers can get killed after all, so their ability isn't perfect.

    I'm loving how easily the pair is taking out Jillian's fores.

    But Marie got one thing wrong. #allsoldiersmatter

    Some only matter because they are an obstacle to overcome, of course.

    It's not easy to hear that Fate exists, but really doesn't give a crap golem about any of the non-legendary characters. Eating that hard truth is at the core of it. Is Marie gonna make master at this rate? Or was she already?

    Those levels look a lot like Elevator Action or something similar. Avoid the Noid? Man that takes me back.

    Jillian is the Boss, but maybe Marie beats her in a cinematic battle.

    One of the most practical theoretical magical application discussions I've seen.

    Also, wondering what Duncan's Dateamancy thingie is gonna say about the match up.

    Edit: green around the eyes again? Lots of juice, I think.

    Sorta. We've only seen two die that I can recall. One of them explicitly died because her predictions were ignored by her warlord and chief caster; for the other one, Marie, it seems like her death was All According To Plan.

    (I don't think it's a coincidence that Predictamancers seem to have a heavy presence in the Magic Kingdom, since they'd tend to be the casters who know when to duck into the portal when their side is about to fall - and would be able to justify it, loyalty-wise, by predicting precisely when they're no longer able to make a difference.)

    I wonder if Marie is using Jillian's awareness of her units being croaked to draw her to a good spot for a confrontation. I believe it is in keeping with the strategic capabilities we are seeing from her.


    And I REALLY want to see her planning a major battle with Parson. Her plus the bracer, with Parson being Parson? TV would love those 99.99 battle odds.

    Hmmm, given what we know of Marie, my hearing of that phrase was that there was an undertone of sadness, of a sense of wrongness that she was expressing.

    Coming from just about anyone else, that would seem haughty, or at least extremely jaded. Perhaps it's still jaded of her to say it, but knowing that it's in her realm of expertise to know just how much most things matter to the future... ouf. Harsh.

    Maybe, maybe not. Remember what Wanda learned: "Mattering" isn't always all that fun.

    But how much of that is the result of predictamancers trying to control her destiny for their own, mad ends? Wanda spoke of people being able to chose their own paths to their fates, but it's pretty clear that she isn't being allowed even that.

    It looks like they'll meet Duncan and stack next. 3 rifles vs. 2 + Predictimancer.

    Nothing is more bullshit than Predictamancy. As a mechanic in this comic, it needs to either die or be an antagonist. Still watching the protagonists God Mode their way through this story, irritating as ever and just waiting for them to finally be torn down.
