Permission Denied. Epic! :)

Seems like everyone is starting to get tired of Wanda, just not Ansom... Interesting.

Good choice by the tool. Because he liked the guy, but yeah.

Edit. Scrolls are rare. So she still has a few backups? So he'll be in the fight. Also, super callous.

It's still definitely not certain whether a caster decrypted is still a caster.

Edit2. Slightly sassy comment from Maggie.

Edit3. Princes are good ones. Stanley clearly doesn't dislike royalty on his side too much.

Edit4. Another reminder, it's getting harder for the casters to go into the magic kingdom. As with sizemore's update.

The best decision Stanley has made since purchasing the summoning spell. Who the hell are you saving your healomancy scrolls for if not for your brilliant foolamancer? Wanda is getting a bit reckless with her new-found power.

I've been waiting to see what the disorder Janis predicts is ever since that update. That's what the big question is right now for me. I'm thinking that perhaps there will be a struggle of some sort amongst GKs leadership. What's your prediction?

A-ha! They don't know either what Decrypting will do to caster's and it's not Jack's turn to be the experiment.
Don't worry Jack your safe from SCIENCE! for another day. Caster's of Spacerock beware however...

Is it just me or does it seem a lot like the comic is going out of its way to answer speculation? "Can decrypted level?" "Can decrypted casters cast?" etc.

Maybe it's just me.

Herself? Her new playthings? She can't decrypt them again, why not heal them if its needed?

Scrolls are becoming rare, because kingdoms involved in the fight have been buying up all the good ones for thier use during the war.

Or because the MK isn't willing to sell anymore... at least to Gobwin Knob.

It's probably the animosity. That was foreshadowed in the update with Sizemore saying he wasn't welcome in certain parts. Plus, I doubt the fight is that big, compared to the entire world. And Unaroyal hasn't notably needed scrolls. Since they got steamrolled. It's when you have minor victories or minor defeats that you need heals.

I joined these forums just to ask that same question. If he did, then that is very interesting.

Just because the Tool says "Permission Denied." does not mean that Wanda will follow through with submitting to it* and Wanda not following that order would cause more strife, which may need to Parson taking the field, etc etc.....

Much as I hate to say it, Jack's fate is still up in the air, IMO.

*Arguements of Duty fall on the fact that Wanda isn't so much bound to the leadership of the Tool as she is to what she calls "to Fate Magic" or her prophesy declared by the FaQ Predictomancer [which are seperate things, though Wanda calls the extension of Fate magic in the form of a prophesy "Fate Magic" itself, which I'm yet to reconcile in my head. It'd be like someone saying they're a follower of Fate magic because they actively keep putting themselves into the feeling of 'flaking' (Hippiemancy is also on the "Fate" axis)] I personally believe that whole part in Book 1 with her working on the "airforce" was just a show for her to retrive the Arkenhammer should Stanley fall, as she had planned to with the original FaQ attack. In other words, that her Duty was faked and thus no Duty sways her now, but merely the fact of convenience. That's another arguement for another day, however.

Dramatic Tension? Check

Character development? Double-Check

Setting up a situation for Wanda to potentially break with the Tool? Check Mate

Yeah. Ever since the threw the Sword of Ruthlessness into the lava lake, he's been able to curse without being censored. Check the summer updates, he curses in those.

Surprisingly good calls by Stanley here. He seems a little more reserved and a little more confident.

It's becoming clear that discarding that sword was his decision to not be completely ruthless any more. I initially thought it was more than that, but in a way, that's enough. I guess that comes with profanity-power.

Wanda's descent into insanity is on schedule, though it's proceeding pretty slowly. If I had those pliers, I would have already turned on GK, among other things. Her next trip to the crazy elevator will probably involve Jillian, so any turn now.

Wanda's gone off the deep end. Stanley makes a compassionate decision, video at 11. Hmm, foreshadowing something?
"Do it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?

I did it thirty-five minutes ago.
