It's probably not Charlie, because he put a lot of effort into trying to get Parson to cast the scroll and I see no reason why he would do all that and then try to convince him not to try. But I doubt it's Fate that's changing the numbers, because the bracer should either show the unaltered probability or the one altered by Fate, not switch from one to the other.
Probably someone in the grand conspiracy that summoned him in the first place, or maybe the spell itself, is trying to keep him in Erfworld. The spell did provide the bracer in the first place.

Because Fate, whatever it is.

Once he is rescued, I wonder if Parson will insta-heal at the start of the next turn like an Erfworld unit. Or will he have to heal slowly over a number of turns? I don't think we've seen Parson injured before now.

Eva wrote:And “True/false: conditions exist that would give me a non-zero chance of successfully casting the Carnymancy spell” tells us that Fate plans to let him go back to earth after he has fulfilled his purpose on Erf.
