Good stuff Scotchmonger, well thought out. I thought that Vurp considered telling Parson the truth about Saline's fate but decided not to, but he may have been unable to à la TDOAL, I'll have to read it again.Charlie may have intended to end GK and scoop up the hammer, but had no idea that Stanley had been made an heir. And I agree, and actually earlier speculated that he may have protected Jillian because of a Fate that involves the heir. In fact if we accept the theory that Charlie removed her connection to Fate by killing The Jester, then it makes sense that Charlie protected her and Wanda wanted to croak her not because of Jillian's fate, but some other fate that involves Charlie and Faq, or Charlie and Albert, but doesn't involve Jillian specifically.


People under a deal of a lifetime have physical pain even thinking about the restricted information in question. It's unlikely Vurp is under one.

Wanda wanted to croak Jillian so she could make her love her again, not because of fate.

Charlie is helping Jill and Faq for unknown reasons. It could just be because he needs a proxy or pawn to use against GK, but she's so unreliable that it's a bad investment if so. (Of course, if it's *only* to use Faq against GK he could've just taken Stanley in the field and put Parson in a really bad spot, so I find that unlikely.)

My money's definitely on the "Unpainted" being golems or something similarly unremarkable rather than being something crazy special. It's considered a truism in miniature war gaming circles that people almost always end up painting the named characters before getting around to finishing that big unit of interchangeable pikemen.

I dunno about that. I've got a Daemon Lord of Blood "Facefeaster" that hasn't seen primer in three editions.

Just batting around a thought here... IF:

1. Fate can only make a limited number of units "Fated" if only to avoid contradictions in Fate
2. It is a knowable number via some sort of Thinkamancer|Findamancer|Predictamancer link or variant thereof

Could Charlie "know" the limit, and is keeping Fated units (that have nothing to do with his Fate) alive for the purpose of avoiding more Fated units popping?

That could explain the reasoning behind keeping both sides alive in the BoBA... Perhaps if Fate was "stuck" there with two Fated Units, Charlie wanted both to survive (and even do well in the fight) if possible, to avoid having yet another "Fated" unit pop somewhere else, possibly with a Fate detrimental to Charlie.


I like it. I wonder if that's why Charlie is determined to get Parson's bracer (among other more obvious reason). Maybe, CC doesn't know the number and wants to find it out.

But Jetstone did not; their Dollamancer made golems (nice units, but not the centerpiece of Jetstone strategy).

Ace mentioned that after their previous Dollamancer croaked and before he popped, Jetstone was seriously considering changing their side's whole strategy for the lack of a Dollamancer. Cloth golems do seem to be the centrepiece of Jetstone strategy.

Though, if I had to give titles to such exceptional individuals, they would be: Erf-Movers, Fatalists, and Numerologists.


I think "Fatalities" might be more apt.

However, I lean more to the "stone golem" conjecture.

And I guess that's where Digdoug comes along.
