I guess she is going for the dwagon-express, trying to capture Ansom.
If Stanley is calling Ansom back to GK each turn, Charlie might be able to find a nice spot for an ambush,
and Jillian would have to deal with only one dwagon+rider.
MM, me too. If I were Jillian, I'd be hitting the supply lines before anything else. Hit a superior force where they are weakest. Since we really don't have supply trains in Erfworld. This would be hitting reinforcements, or the dragon express. If they aren't hitting the dragon express, then Jillian is probably hitting one of Stanley's newly re-conquered cities that has been stripped down to a picket force. If she is hitting GK directly, it will be a hit-and-run strike with a very specific objective. Of course, we are probably meant to assume that Jillian is heading to reinforce Jetstone, so there is always a chance she is going there as well.
Jillian has repeatedly made it clear she wants to croak Stanley. The choice of fast long range flying mounts is would be an obvious one.
Many other things can be done with fast long range mounts but there is no reason to believe Jillian is not maintaining her objective.
Yes, and Don, and Charley as well I'm sure, have both made clear to her that going in boldly is NOT a winning strategy. Don't attack the enemy where they are strong. Jillian has shown that she is capable of listening to advice, so I think she'll do what is more likely to succeed in the long run, not what she feels like doing. So I disagree, I believe we have every reason to believe that Jillian is maintaining her objective. She's just taking a longer view. She took this job because she wanted to win, not just strike back blindly.
