    Did Maggie just become a Date-a-mancer? In addition to already being a Thinkamancer I mean.

    Well if Maggie doesn't level up now, she never will. She now understands enough about Thinkamancy to know she would be considered dangerous... a "baddie." Plus, isolating the difference between G strings and H strings puts her way above her previous level of understanding.

    Amazing update!

    I remember reading theories on the forums that Date-a-mancers might be able to do a similar trick to Thinkamancer's links. Kinda sounds like that theory got a new piece of supporting evidence.

    We are still stuck in the existing matrix of known disciplines. Its the unusual way they are joined which creates new opportunities. I think Maggie is going to apply mastery of G-Strings to developing a mastery of both G-Strings and H-Strings. Imagine the power at applying your will to others Hearts and Minds to forge new ways to control and influence.

    In before people complaining about another meaningless update. Cause characterization is meaningless, apparently.

    For my part... I absolutely love this one.

    "half the grand cosmos" (That's from memory, think that's what it said)

    I don't know if she just stepped into being a cross-class caster, but she absolutely has to be at least knocking on the door of thinkamancy mastery.....touching on thinkamancy's natural entwinement (or equivalency to the great grandiocosmic string).

    All is one. Different perspectives see the One as different things.

    Wrapping H-strings around G-strings (while really being the same strings...) to shield one's g-string activity from thinkamancers and the arkendish? Fun stuff.

    It does make me wonder what happens to the Thinkamancy discipline if so many of the masters of the discipline are crushed under their demolished clubhouse. When you have a severe limitation to the people able to impart knowledge, you have a substantial change in how that knowledge is shaped and used. Its feasible to think that should Maggie survive, she will be one of the preeminent thinkamancers (after the Deiform Isaac + others) left in Erfworld. She could define her own standards of being a "baddie".

    So suppose the existing matrix is-- not wrong, as such, but artificially limited. Parson made an analogy to Stupidworld 4-elements alchemy. What if the whole "cross-discipline" thing-- especially the cross-axis "barriers"-- are all simply functions of belief?

    Janis seemed to imply as much with her dissertation on Carnymancy, did she not?

    I just can't stop cheering for Maggie to do... well, SOMETHING... I don't even know what she's going to do to him... only that it's going to mess him up something fierce.

    Jack also has a point, it is fairly rude to tell someone where they "shouldn't" look, it automatically makes them want to look in that direction. A much more polite thing would be a "do you mind if I distract you for a moment?" question, followed up by discussion or misdirection with possible dialog of what you distracted them from discerning.

    But I digress.

    I do however think that Jack will use that to deliberately distract Bill from looking at something and Bill going all "I'm not going to fall for that twice", a double-bluff, if you will. It'd be totally something Jack would do and totally something Bill would fall for.

    I've thought for a while that Erfworld was constructed as a kind of universally cruel joke. As such, all beings within it are humerous in ways they don't understand, often tragically. As such, it would make sense if the people most accused of being "smart" or "intelligent" and of "knowing" or "seeing" things... are the most left in the dark about some things.

    I have a personal headcanon that a master Lookamancer would be called (popularly) an "overseer" but that it could also be called an "allseer". While both are applicable, they have wildly different implications.

    GK so needs a Lookamancer, if only to complete it's current Eyemancy set.

    This swirling image is the pay-off for an early page in book 3. Wheras the earlier page has disjointed panels with strings inbetween, this one is a clean collage, united by the strings.

    That was beautiful.

    Maggie has found the perfect fusion of logic and emotion, and it was all laid out so wonderfully throughout many updates.

    It's hard to admit it, but I was one of the people frustrated with the pace and players, and boy was I an idiot.
    Now that dots are connecting, I can see the string of events that brought us here, and some loose ends getting tied up.

    Or in Caesars case, untied.

    I wonder this means that the Isaac doll has some 3rd kind of string that Wanda recognizes at the Life thread (an L-string?) given that Maggie seems to think that the makaleka has an H-string but isn't alive.

    Wow. Like everyone else, I've been guessing Maggie would achieve Master through this whole experience. Wasn't expecting Novice Datamancer though!

    So, Wanda's link to the Decrypted through the Pliers is at least partially a Datamancy link. I wonder if that's why she was so disgusted by the idea of severing a Decrypted's ties to the Arkenpliers. Wanda doesn't have Datamancy senses, so I doubt she knows the specifics, but she was able to feel intuitively that such a thing seemed wrong. I'm betting that's also how Ossomer turned then. He needed to feel so negatively toward Wanda and his new side that he severed all Datamantic ties with them, turning back to Jetstone.

    Another thought: Now that we're going to see a Thinkamancer/Datamancer, might we see some magic on the "Data" side rather than "Date-a," just like Signamancy has to do with "Signs", "Signatures," etc?
