A most enjoyable, informative update. Don's set up is interesting and really is quite different from the other sides.
So it seems there is actually "adviser" units and they are useful in managing cities... I like how WHILE Don has no time for them Slately has them around and accepts their lying and so forth as part of the whole royal thing. And no wonder TV has so many warlords, Don has a bit of a meritocracy going there, and you need lots of units competing to bring out the best. Heh I bet some of those advisers who were turned ended up with Carpool...
I'm happy he wasn't trying to get Caesar croaked and I guess this goes some way to explaining the Don heir - situations being what they are Don doesn't think Caesar is suitable for the throne and is trying the heir thing again, not that he has gone all royal mad.
Also nice to see Don is on top of things. He isn't blind to the situation he has with Caesar and recognizes Caesar has support from the warlords of TV. Also interesting to see how mishandling a popular warlord can have a recognizable impact on the loyalty of the rest of the forces.
I guess Benjamin is TV's moneymancer, I wonder what he looks like.
name lips wrote:So far, these "courtiers" sound like the closest thing Erfworld has to "civilians." They're popped for the purpose of managing cities, advising rulers, and wandering around court.
Indeed, I'm really interested in them now. I was curious when Slately updates talked about advisers and such, because we hadn't seen any sign of units that seemed to do that kind of thing outside of warlords and casters. Plus there were the guys in robes.
So a side can pop units that are just meant to talk/advise and run cities. GK doesn't seem to have any, Charlie doesn't and nor does Jillian. TV did and the Don got rid of them all. Poor guys don't seem high on pop lists, although I guess it is possible non-royal sides can't pop them and Don and Jillian are just different enough royalty. I wonder if Bea had any...
I wonder if the ones Don inherited backed his son or something like that and he made a play for the throne. He'd never trusted them, "but after his son's mistake"... hmmm.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
