    Keep up the great work! Love the written segments every bit as much as the fully illustrated :)

    Holy shit. This revealed a lot to me about exactly how powerful linked Thinkomancers are.

    Intense update, in more ways than one.

    Did they just confirm super linkups? :D

    Parson isn't trying to go to a specific portal, just to any portal. Any chance that he can overcome the inability to move towards a chosen destination and instead move to a random one?

    The Thinkamancers reliance on consensus is their own undoing. It means a single mole (RVC) basically paralyzed them for the whole time.

    Of course, they might have been unable to decide anything anyway. Decisions made by committee and all that.

    So it looks like Parson won't get to a portal after all. It seems like the great minds disoriented everyone in the park.

    Claud Gauntlett is a person and not an organization after all.

    And Rhymamancer Shawn Bawn survives. Yeah! As do Sandy and Lizzie.

    And really interesting art in that last panel. The art team must have had fun with that one.

    Aerith has been shown a number of times. She must end up becoming somewhat of a relevant character.

    Some of Charlies secrets have turned out to not be so secret after all. The Great minds have been on to at least some of it.

    Huh. Now that the last Bean has been named, does he stand a better or worse chance of survival? And I see what other commenters have previously noted about the Aerith-looking caster popping up all the time. Does this hint at a larger role yet to play, or does Xin just like drawing her?

    Also, if Roger sees Parson as such a great threat, to the point of working at least indirectly with Charlie through Jojo, why would he be so concerned about Parson winding up with a random side? That seems like exactly the sort of situation that Charlie could exploit with his operatives placed far afield, probably resulting in Parson's death, regardless of any ransom paid by GK. You don't have to worry about controlling a potential threat if that threat is dead.

    Edit: apparently Sir Dr D and I Think Alike, regarding Shawn Bawn and Aerith.

    I think they're implying that nobody can take a conscious action to move in any direction at all... they literally can't tell where the ground is, or what parts of their body are touching it, or that directions are different from each other. I don't think they'd be able to point themselves at a portal and move towards it.

    Also... super linkups? With enough master-class thinkamancers, it looks like you can accomplish a lot. Standard linkups are State 2 and 3. States 4, 5, 6, and 7 are possible, and allow ridiculously fast transfer of information. States 8, 9, 10, and 11 are only theoretical - but maybe with sufficient juice? Powerful enough casters?

    ... or the right Arkentool? The some of the arkendish's abilities are also described as "channels" just like these States are (in the 4th paragraph) and are also an efficient way of organizing information. I wonder what it could do in the hands of an attuned Thinkamancer.

    Also, and this is something of a random aside, for some reason this description of all the States and theoretical States reminds me of people discussing String Theory. And what is it that Thinkamancers manipulate? Strings!

    Well well well. Treachery. Plots within plots. And top it all off with total chaos.

    It's kind of hilarious they consider that faster decision making than non-thinkamancers given all the non-thinkamancers making tons of impactful decisions while these guys did nothing (even allowing for the delay caused by just one mole). And here was I thinking Roger must have done something drastic to delay their involvement so long.

    Did they not think of something as easy for them as a group thinkagram to the free casters being all "Guys, Charlescomm started this, desist until we work out what happened?" rather than waiting for people to get croaked and then having to reveal their superpower?

    so long story short Thinkamancers tend to think themselves into indecision.

    Yeah, they should be able to stop this conflict in an instant, using their standard, known abilities -- instead of needing the Great Minds to reveal their secret weapon.

    Bureaucracy man, goddamn.

    The good news is that the Great Minds, who are all presumably qualified, have fully documented the events. They know it was Charlie's portal that croaked free casters. They know that Ivan Poe and Claud Gauntlet are in league with Charlie. They know that Ivan attempted to kill anyone entering the GK portal. They saw pretty much everything that went down. That's the good news.

    The bad news is that their ability to spy on the Magic Kingdom is a secret, and who knows if they'll reveal it to prevent Parson and co from being found guilty when put on trial.

    Edit: Annnnnd, now I'm waiting for the inevitable complaints about how convenient this was. I disagree with that notion, but it'll come up anyway.

    I wonder how many of the decisions were left unsolved because of RVC.

    Also, seems like they are recording the events for later use. That is evidence against Charlescomm and help for GK, unless RVC finds\have a way to mess up those records.

    I think that the topsy-turvy spell might make Parson unable to move towards any portal, regardless of him not looking for a specific one.

    Looking forwards to next update.

    And GREAT work, team! You are awesome!

    Well Boop. Of course no guarantee he won't accidently stumble through a portal. Also surprised the Thinkmancers can do somthing like this. Can't help but feel this will backfire badly somehow on them though. Unless erfworld is setup weird power balance wise the other classes have to have their own super secret super spells. They're inviting an all out war once someone figures it out. Of course they do seem aware of that given their unwillingness to use it till things really hit the fan.
