    Of course, there are pyramid schemes in there somewhere.


    Be the mercenary side like charlie, only instead of information you trade temporary units (doubles) who have had their lifespan rigged to last a few turned longer.


    Well, now that gets me thinking. Thanks!
    So, Shills as a lower-class support unit, Grifters above that... yup, I think this can work. Will show results upon completion, if desired.

    Yeah i'd definitely be curious to see!
    Moneymancy might also be a thing to consider, you can perform financial services and take a percentage, in such a way that they appear to be making a profit from your services, but they could be making a lot more that you're skimming off the top.

    True, but then they'd know how much ur jipping them by. Moneymancy would be easier to conceal the "hidden fees and charges" with, especially with a carnymancer coming in.
    I wonder if Kaed would allow you to have a special D that gets one out of a choice of specials. Not like Archons, which gain another simplemancy with each level, but more like "Loan-sharks. Randomly pop with 1 simplemancy, either Money, Carny, or Ditto, and have only that school."

    Yeah, that's cool.
    Although loan sharks are really more your forte, 0beron.
    But still, rigging the rules for chosen clients, that has some interesting ring to it.

    I'll think about it. Also I'm not sure you can double schmuckers. It would be like trying to double something that exists only as a concept. Dittomancy is very much within the element of Matter, and Moneymancy is outside of all elements.

    Then again... if you're doing a trimancer linkup with moneymancy and dittomancy, your composite caster can manage spells no single caster could pull off..

    I agree about the Schmucker/Ditto thing. I think that you could trick the ruler into thinking they had twice the schmuckers perhaps, but they can't be used to buy anything. I suppose you could double a GEM, since it's physical though? That's what I meant when I agreed that Dittomancy could be used in finance.

    Well yes... Until the gems vanish next turn. Then things would get awkward.

    By which point you've already run dozens of hexes away. Sounds like the perfect con.

    So, how is the au naturale allies situation going for everyone?
    Also, fun quick trivia question: What would your side dance to in a dance fight? Pop? Rock? Funk? What?
    Also, I'm getting rather worried. No news of anything yet! Have I done something wrong?

    Hah, DITTO MY ACCOUNTS!
    Actually,. ditto/carny link would be able to pull of double bookkeeping no trouble.

    Actually, any chance of me getting into this game within a week or two? Maybe as a summoned CW? ^^

    My guess, sincerely doubt it. Anyone else would be extra work that might tip over the threshold of manageable, and nobody has anywhere near enough money for a summon warlord spell.

    We change it up. Techno and cheezy 90's boy-band choreography would be the norm though.

    I doubt it. This game moves slowly....you just learn to deal with it and be happy when something does happen.
