Are only heavies able to sink to the ground?

I'm not sure what 'double-mount' means. Can you clarify that please?


Yes, we're pretty sure now that you can't voluntarily turn off your flying ability off-turn, so you need some other way (an exploit) to get to ground off-turn. Upgrading a unit to heavy is one way, the dwagon can't support that weight and both sink to the ground (although we're still not sure if the units take damage or not). I'll refer to this situation as an "overloaded mount." Harvesting is apparently the other way of getting to the ground. Or just jumping off your mount, although that would leave the mount stuck in airspace.

Double-mounting refers to other places in the comics where we've seen two people riding one mount. So some have asked why not have the hobgobwins double-mount with Wanda, or Jack, etc., and then upgrade the hobgobwin to heavy. My hypothesis is that that won't work. Other alternatives are that it wouldn't help (everyone takes the same falling damage) or that Parson made a mistake in planning or Wanda made a mistake in execution.
OK that makes sense :) Very good answers.

Thanks for your input.
Here's a new thought, technically a response to several pages back.

Over the course of his' thinkcall with Charlie, Tramennis' went through some pretty weird transformations. In fact, I'm going to say "far out" and possibly "groovy man", but definitely "psychedelic". Is this what Hippiemancy in action looks like? If so, what does it actually do?

Well, considering that harvesting was just pulled out of the Midichlorian Ideas Pool, then mid-air off-turn dismounts could have been posited just as easily.


Harvesting has been previously established. This has been previously discussed to death already right in this thread.

Rob? Please post an update soon. We're running out of tinfoil.

I think that was Signamancy indicating Charlie trying to play with Trem's head.

Tram is far more hippie like than the corperate Charlie. Seemed to me like it became increasingly psycheledlic as Tram gained the upper hand in the conversation. I think that the whole thing was symbolic of Tram outmanuvering Charlie. I also think the art was much better than Jillian's conversation with Charlie.

She'd doublemount before they were promoted. Parson didn't want
Wanda double-mounted.

My guess is that Parson wanted Wanda and all the decrypted on the
ground as fast as possible. I suppose heavies are rather slow falling
and Tram can still zap them or shoot a few arrows on them.

They Fight Crime!


The expression is: "Together, they fight crime!"

The version he uses is just weak. How can that guy go through so much trouble to set that site up and then fumble on the 1-yard line? He even made it the name of his site. :? It's like having a big, tricked-out and mis-spelled name tag on your shirt. In a photograph. With you smiling, proudly, because you didn't notice the speling erorr.

...It is also possible that she was considered a 'useless' caster and her talents not put to good use. I doubt the last one as she was a 'master class' Croakamancer and I don't think she levelled all the way to there under Stanley/King Saline IV. She had to be practicing her arts in some way.


Remember though that she's a multi-talented caster. Even without scrolls she's able to cast from other disciplines (Sizemore was able to cast Shockamancy with scrolls and he's said he's not multi-talented, so Wanda being multi-talented must represent casting from other disciplines WITHOUT scrolls). So it probably wasn't her Croakamancy that she used a lot in order to level or to help FAQ.

I'm curious as to what she did actually do for them.
