So, I was just rereading parts of Book 2, because.. well, because it's awesome, of course. No need to explain that /here/.
And I just came to an amusing realization.
The entirety of Book 2 and it's epilogues takes place in one day and night, right? So we haven't seen the start of the turn following the battle. And I just realized that when Gobwin Knob's next turn starts, they are going to have the most epic legendary feast EVER, because they harvested like 50 dwagons for food.
The entire garrison of Spacerock might literally be covered in dwagon meat. And since a few of those decrypted dwagons survived, it's entirely possible that a dwagon will wind up eating itself.
Unlikely, since, y'know, zero upkeep, which I always assumed meant that Decrypted don't eat because no money is spent to pop rations for them. But it's /possible/, and does amusingly lead to the wild speculation that eating one's own food corpse might constitute a true resurrection of sorts. But that's just a wild theory. Mostly I'm interested in what the heck can be DONE with all that food. Most of Gobwin Knobs troops are decrypted and therefore, as previously mentioned, don't eat, so they're probably going to pop enough food to feed their eating units for like twelve turns.
Can that work? Can Erfworld cities put their leftovers in the fridge and choose not to pop fresh stuff on their next turn? Can they keep leftover food fresh by paying a smaller upkeep to refresh it between turns? If so, does that mean food never spoils, and what would happen to the food if they let it spoil anyway? Would it disband, or become poisonous? Can Sizemore make, say, a Rot Golem from some of it? Can they sell it to other sides for Schmuckers?
All fun hypotheticals, but I'd be disappointed if Book 3 didn't have at least one panel somewhere with a unit buried in food the moment the turn starts with an onlooker saying, "Oh yeah. Forgot about that."
