So much cool stuff in that update.
By Dove's guesses, Moneymancers, Healomancers, Thinkamancers and Hat Magicians should be some of the most likely barbarian casters to be hired, which I guess seems sensible - they've all got magic of types that would be in high demand for sides to hire. And the Signamancers probably get along well arranging contracts for other casters. But on the opposite end, she sounds like Carnymancers have a hard time scraping together upkeep to the point she'd take the lowest paying jobs.
I wonder if this all works out for Homekey, if they would afterwards make cheaply hiring Predictamancers and Carnymancers a key part of their strategy. After all, knowing what's Fated to happen and being almost the only side willing to hire Carnies to change
the Fated things they don't like sounds like an incredible combination.
“One more guess,” said Digdoug. He didn’t remember agreeing to this game, but he had to admit it was fun. And he didn’t think it violated his secrecy order.
That's Carnymancy in a nutshell, isn't it. He didn't think it violated his secrecy order.
Even though if she guessed right not answering would clearly be the same result as outright telling her, it doesn't directly violate the order, so she can convince him to go along with it by making it seem fun. By delaying Hat Magician and Thinkamancer until her last guess she even managed to get four guesses out of her game.
