Well, I think this confirms Charlie has power over ALL thinkamancy links, or at least the ones Stanley had. Disconnecting and intercepting calls seems like a REALLY bad thing for Tool. And Parson. And Erfworld. My guess is Charlie is trying to force Parson to use the scroll, not trying to croak him. I'm guessing the scroll somehow gets him under Charlie's command, as Charlie had many simpler, more effective options to croak Parson. I think Charlie knows Parson's ultimate power in Erfworld, and will do anything to get him, despite his remonstrations about his artifact at the battle of Gobwin Knob. Scary as Charlie is, though, I'm still absolutely terrified of Olive Branch, and I REALLY hope she ends up dying. That chick is friggin' SCARY.
