To date, Wanda's never directly ignored Parson's advice. Only once has she even twisted it slightly, by capturing/killing Ossamer as her way of "gathering intelligence".
He was having a hard enough time just responding to Wanda's requests for tactical advice. Fortunately, he didn't have to do much but play Mathamancer, run the calculations, and say, "yeah, that'll work" to Ansom's fairly solid plans. The one time he'd said "no, bad plan" they'd done it anyway.

This must have been difficult to reason out in a mind like Maggie's. Or maybe not since in her mind Parson was always the one to have for chief warlord. But to actually cast a suggestion spell on her Overlord sounds like loyalty bells ringing.

Where did Maggie get the hypno powder from? Is that from Wanda's stash? Did she get it from the magic kingdom?

Rolan7 wrote:But he can't ride the dragons and has 0 move, as a garrison unit! Well, I think we've heard that garrison units can sometimes be upgraded to have move. If Stanley is completely convinced Parson should be Chief Warlord, it'd make sense to pay for a movement upgrade. At the core of Stanley's character is the idea that a warlord should be on the front lines. It worked exceedingly well for him personally, so he applied the same idea to all his old warlords (getting them all killed as a result). His glee at capturing Ansom and Ossomer also exhibit this. So I think he would much rather have his Chief Warlord on the front lines, regardless of said Warlords actual combat ability.
