If he has a goal beyond simply surviving indefinitely, then I think it is tied into the nature of Erfworld itself, and is something we can't understand without knowing more about the Titans & Fate.
It's possible that he's saving up to literally buy something, a unit or ability or trick that qould require such an infinitely vast sum of schmuckers that nobody else is even aware it's an option. A tangent of this could be the Archons and his "threat" to Thinkamancy. Perhaps with Archons, he can do something with the 'Dish to try and break Natural Thinkamancy, destroying Duty Obedience & Loyalty. A large enough army of archons however would require a vast income to support.

Nobody in Erfworld except Rulers and Barbarians have true free will, so if ending that is his goal, Charlie would definitely be an anti-hero in my eyes.
It seems to me that all the evidence points to Charlie being a threat to far more than just Natural Thinkamancy. Charlie has a dedicated enemy in the Great Minds that Think Alike. Even though it's never been revealed why they hate Charlie so much, we know that it has something to do with magic from Epilogue 12, and I think it's safe to guess that the magic is Thinkamancy (at least in part), and I doubt the Great Minds would be so worried about a mere attack on Natural Thinkamancy. Natural Thinkamancy hardly seems relevant to their lives in the Magic Kingdom, neither ruling nor subject to rulers. To me it seems that Charlie must somehow be a threat to Thinkamancers, to the Thinkamancy way of life which is probably the only thing that the Great Minds really care about, and we know that Charlie has the power to block Thinkamancy.0beron wrote:A tangent of this could be the Archons and his "threat" to Thinkamancy.

Well that's true....but it's a huge assumption, one I wouldn't bet a single tenth of a cent on. Power corrupts, and Charlie is bad news bears to begin with. No single person should have that kind of power under the best of circumstances.Lamech wrote:Assuming he never abused his new found power, turning loyalty to him would be a vast improvement.
So the relay part is specifically in reference to his casting ability, not his range with the 'Dish itself. Moreover, G-string are intangible, infinite things, and no Thinkamancer has ever mentioned a limit to their range. The fact that Charlie may Thinkagram with any unit in all of Erfworld shows us that every G-string is indeed available to him. So he'll only need his relays if the spell is completely unrelated to Thinkamancy.The ability to cast and even link up at a distance. Archons worked as relays
