The tankeroo is absolutely wuvewy!

And I'm glad we see a peek into Tremmennis' mind, and doubly so that it's not about Jillian. Whew.

"Jetstone does not rock". Awwww. The Titans need to show the NORP side some more wuve methinks :cry:

Wow, so Ford will find no targets of oportunity. So sad.
I think therefore I am. This leaves you in a bad spot.

Army inteligence is sadly an oximoron these days. And no General, I did not just call you a cow.

I cut myself shaving with Occam's razor.

Well at least Trem had the brains to leave behind the casters but he is still letting old strategies of Jetstone rule his choices. I liked the "Winnie the Pooh" reference in the art, but where is Tigger? I wonder how his actions are going to pan out, because I feel that something is going to make this the wrong choice. over all great update!

LFNs, G-RAFs and a tankaroo. Awesome.
Any guesses as to what the initials stand for in Erf?

So, no casters, flyers, or archery. That leaves leadership for Captain Ford to target.

I also liked that Winnie the Pooh artistic reference. I guess that makes Tramennis "Roo". :)

I wonder how hard it will actually be for Tramennis to fight his former friends and allies.

I have no idea, but I decided to take a guess regardless. Why not, right?

LFN = Large Fuzzy Noses

G-RAF = Guidepost - Reference Above Formations

tankeroo = self explanatory

Okay, so those are extremely lame guesses, but oh well.

Yeah right. Just like pilots refer to the B-52 as the Big Fat Fellow ;)

I have seen it. Pretty good movie. Not as funny as I'd hoped, but enjoyable.

A difference between these decrypted guys and zombies is that zombies aren't sentient.

I think it will be hardest for Tramennis to kill Ossomer when (and if ) it gets to that point in the story.

Well done to Trem! Everything needed to shoot down dwagons is left behind. Lower-level Warlords in front - in the best case they'll get XP they need, in the worst case they croak but they're not the ones needed for the assault anyway.

About the only thing that could go wrong is Tramennis himself croaking - but I have enough confidence that Jetstone knows how to do routine mop-up operations like this without endangering their CW, even if the enemy tries to target him exclusively.

Looks good for Trem so far.

Just an FYI to anyone who isn't familiar with the new 3d animated kid's show "My Friends Tigger and Pooh", the LFN looks just like a (larger and angrier) version of Lumpy, the friendly Heffalump child. Oh, uh.... I only know this because my little brothers used to watch it. <.< >.>

Apparently, he also appears in "Pooh's Heffalump Movie".

Also, "Jetstone does not rock" made me grin.

I just have to say, "FOR SALAD!" is a good battle cry. Possibly better than "For Pony!"

LFN= LFNs Fight Nasty

G-RAF= Golem - Rabid, Armored and Fearsome

They'd probably have GNUs as well, but GNUs are Not Units.

Hah! Well played, sir.

...on an unrelated note, we have talk of archers "conserving arrows" for the dwagons.

I have to say, I'm becoming a fan of the theory that ranged units have a finite amount of "ammo" that they get each turn. Makes sense, fits the way people talk about ranged fighting. (Not to make this a discussion of archery mechanics. Militarized hundred-acre woods and Tramennis not walking in to stupid traps are much better discussions!)

I got this too. I guess LFN is the Heffalump ("Ellefen")?
"Do it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?

I did it thirty-five minutes ago.
