TGMtTA have foolamancers and lookamancers. They would see right through Jack's Veil. That said, we do not know what TGMtTA agreed too. We never saw that agreement. We saw what they claimed they agreed too.


Wait, where was this stated? As far as I remember, there's been no reference to anything other than thinkamancers being part of tGMtTA.
Isaac is also a master-class foolamancer. Via one of the supplements in the printed books.

It's been proven they can't, as that's how Wanda and Jack stacked up with Parson in the first place, moving in under the cover of a veil that left everyone staring in shock.

The christian references and messages in both BC and Charlie Brown are a kind of powerful but non-invasive communication that you simply don't see anywhere else. No one has the talent, knowledge, courage, or the support on the ground, to specifically teach good moral principles through art, at least, not without using a sledgehammer. So in my mind, these books are priceless.

Um. The Christian references and messages in B.C. were the exact opposite of non-invasive. B.C. was basically two different comic strips that happened to have characters with the same name and appearance, divided by Johnny Hart's conversion to fundamentalist Christianity. Before that line, it was a pretty decent and basically secular caveman comic. After that, it was a comic with a Message, that frequently used BECAUSE JESUS! in lieu of a punchline with all the subtlety of the Tool's 'Hammer, never mind that it's nominally set Before Christ. (Actually, three different comics, the third being the Uncroaked strip produced by Johnny Hart's heirs, which is seldom good and frequently just batboop insane.)

Anyone understand the "dookeda" bit?


I'm with Efftagius here. I've spoken english all my life and in that half century I have never used "dookeda" as a drumroll onomatopoeia. It's weird enough that I supposed that it was a pun, the words to a spell, or a reference to something Stupidworldish that I didn't know about.
Google apparently knows everything.

Dunno if this is the right source for the use of the onomatopoeia, but it does use the exact same spelling.

Oh, and look, guys! Sylvia got dismounted! And she didn't dust from the horrible deadly fall. Amazing!
There are a couple of good reasons for that. One is pure game mechanics in that she did not change zones when she fell.
*sigh* You don't need to change zones to have fallen. You do need to fall to change zones off-turn. Do not argue the one based on the necessity of the other.

Came across that site in my search also, but it looks to be a pretty dang obscure site. Also, it does not use the exact same spelling!

Nevertheless, I'm guessing the drumroll interpretation is right. Still seems weird, but I'm not sure I have anything more sensible to offer.
Just wanted to add a pop-culture reference. Several people have commented about the Blond Predictamancer chick that vanished shortly after Jack and Wanda joined the Never Ending Stor- I mean debate with the GMTTA. I didn't catch it until today when I was re-reading some older pages and saw when she originally joined the group, along with her sisters. She represents one of the triplets known in Shakespear, and Disney's Gargoyles, as the Wierd Sisters; Children of Oberonn with the abilites to predict the fate of men, among other things. Din't know if anyone else had recognized them, or mentioned it, but I couldn't remember seeing it mentioned in the forum.

Hmm... maybe only natural foolamancers have foolamancy senses. On the other hand they also might have been startled by Wanda and Jack dashing out of the portal at high speeds. Wouldn't you be startled if someone was talking normally and then charged?
I thought it was said that Isaac was only an adept foolamancer?

Eh, but even archons can see through foolamancy. Of course, I was assuming that the see through was related to their foolamancy special.
