Heh, oh Jillian. I'm liking this page, and seeing Duncan in action a bit as well. And I guess that answer the question about Jillian in the coming battle. Looks like she is heading back to Faq to work on Ansom. Though I wonder if she thinks Wanda has a chance. She wont fight, but she thinks Trem has the tools needed to, what, kill her? Or just drive her off?
So Charlie thinks it is possible to turn Ansom - I guess they'll give it a shot with full juice Vanna, and if that doesn't work maybe try another link up... the way Trem words it though, about being spawned by an Akentool. Well, I guess another arkentool might have a shot if used right.
And while it would probably be better for the RCCII if Jillian stayed and fought what she will do is useful as well. Further isolate the decrypted army there, sow some confusion, eliminate potential near by reinforcements.
And now to wait and see Vinnie's response. And Don King's of course.

Well, Jillian has only just caught him and Charlie didn't know that would happen. My guess is Charlie has contacted her since the capture and told her he thinks it is possible. Maybe he'd just like to experiment on a captured decrypted.

I don't know if it sounds that much like Charlie - especially since he usually plays at taking orders, not giving them. Strong arming a side into helping him and then sending then sending them off to die pointlessly...
Although I guess now at least he has made sure they wouldn't mess up the battle to much by betraying Jetstone at the wrong moment.

If she is then she is far, far, far crazier then even Caesar would have imagined. She doesn't have the forces to beat Wanda there by herself, unless Charlie has some awesome big surprise waiting she'd have no chance to crack the nut Stanley's is currently safe in.
Sigma wrote:I think it's rather interesting that Tramennis apparently has no issue with Jillian taking (and then razing) formerly-Jetstone-held cities on her way back to FAQ. Perhaps there's a mechanic in place to allow leaders to cede one or more cities to each other bloodlessly?
Well they are currently held by, and are supporting, GK. I imagine it will be easier for Jetstone to retake either the ruins or whatever GK refounds there if they have recently been razed (if some GK units are in the area to retake the ruins).
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.
