It's even explicitly stated at one point that all casters in the MK are from fallen sides, and that there was supposed to be no shame in that apparent "failure" to save one's side, unless you were a Predictamancer. So Dirtamancers' rarity in the MK means that either they are a rare caster type in general, or they are for some reason less likely to survive the fall of their side due to where/what they would be doing at the time. Both possibilities seem equally plausible to me.Omnimancer wrote:Here's a theory: what if Dirtmamancers...usually pop working for cities where they're needed, rather than as free casters. Most Dirtmancers might be like Sizemore, working for a side and only able to freelance in MK occasionally.
I have a theory about Tisha. What if while she was a wild caster, she was found by Charlie? He then gets her into contact with Jungstown, all as part of a long con to break the inner circle of the Great Minds. He makes the summon perfect warlord spell with her the first time, which is how she knows how to make it for Gobwin Knob. And then she helps summons Parson as part of Charlie's plot to fight fate.
Basically, wouldn't it be awesome if Charlie put out a hit on himself to try and break the way the world works?
