He may not have expected to need that scenario in this particular battle before Kingworld, but it's very plausible that it was in the Parson playbook for emergencies and that Jack and Wanda (or at least Jack) were in on it.
Ooooh, misunderstanding. I was referring to the idea of harvesting mounts/promoting to heavies so that you could force your way from the Airspace into the Garrison off-turn. That part Parson came up with on the fly.

There's gotta be a good joke in here somewhere.

I was sure that I had seen a strip with Maggie sitting on a chair of some sort in the Temple, but I couldn't find it in the archives. Finally I realized that was because the strip wasn't in the archives. It was the bonus page from the hardcover that I transcribed here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6661&start=60#p104589

Obviously I can't link to the page itself, but Maggie is shown sitting on a sort of rounded pink sofa. I guess we'll have to assume for the sake of continuity that someone granted her a special favor for the occasion. ;)

Or the chair restriction only applies during sufficiently official meetings.

Hey, I know it's a bit late but I couldn't help stop reading in this chapter to see if someone actually recognised the women in the hair rollers.

I think I do, I might be wrong, but I think she's a character in an old mexican TV show (70's and 80's) called "El chavo del 8", her name is Doña Florinda ("Doña" as in the female counterpart of Don). This was a very popular show in Latin America. And a couple of years ago got a revival as a cartoon.

So far I'm loving Erfworld and I'm kinda sad I'm catching up to the authors. So I guess this is my first contribution to the community.

Some pics, the outfit is not the same, maybe I'm totally wrong and that is a random character they decided to draw, but since most of them seem to have a real character which they are based on...

Translated wikipedia link (LINK) doesn't seem to have any hints as to why she would anything punnish or relevant to Thinkamancy. But, you could still be right, maybe there's a reference in there somewhere.

That's what made me think I might have got it wrong. But still, it was the only thing that came to my mind when I saw the drawing.
