Not to mention that "Ace Hardware" is a great place to find some tools.starburst98 wrote:but parson is the chief warlord meaning that all his side's units in the entire HEX get a bonus if he is in it. so while 2 isn't much hen added to all the other warlords and stuff it matters. like say, the warlord that was decrypted after being THWARTed, he may have a 6 bonus, but parson shows up so it now totals 8 meaning all units in his stack are powered up and stuff. also parson would want Ace the dollamancer SO BAD, and ace would probably like serving under him since parson would LIKE his ideas and give him feedback on how they would be better.

On the other hand, Ossomer, who seemed at least equally proud when we first met him, seems (just from reading his body language) to feel quite a bit of shame over the way his side is behaving. I don't know if this shows a difference in character that I hadn't noticed, or if Ansom would have reacted the same way if he had stayed around to see Gobwin Knob's latest tactics.

on an other note, Ossomer must feel quite bad... Is there anything like morale in Erfworld? I can't remember...

We still have all the Dwagons and half their riders are now Heavies, and there is a strike force of a couple hundred Decrypted in the garrison now.
The Archons control the airspace so no using Unipegtuars, and all casters, including the Dittomancer that can increase the remaining troops, are leaving the Hex. But Archons can't land this turn.
The bolted doors won't be able to last very long once Sylvia and her Red get up there and ranks of infantry in confined areas are not very good against breath weapons. But only one Dwagon will be able to go through the choke point at a time since there appears to only be one entrance (unless someone gets the idea of blasting down a wall), and enough spear thrusts WILL bring down a Dwagon.
Jetstone has more Leadership units, but possibly their best remaining one, Duke Antium, is now Decrypted.
This sounds like an incredibly even fight. There is a fifty-fifty chance that Tramennis will have his military stay and fight. For plot purposes, if Tramennis didn't there would be no need for Parson to go through the Magic Kingdom, which he is predicted as doing so, so I think Tramennis is gonna stick it out for the chance of victory. No way the battle is gonna get tied up so quickly.
And Ace...seems to place a HIGH priority on serving Prince Tramennis in this battle. He'll probably get permission from the King to go back. I get the feeling the Jetpack is gonna save someone's day and Ace will go into Parson's pocket.
It would be great if Ace and Sizemore team up to make combat androids...

Seeing the basic beliefs of his life (honourable conduct etc) being violated by his CWL.
Considering if his beliefs in the RTM have indeed been proven wrong by his defeat.
Considering Toolism as perhaps a valid option after all...
Unlike Ansom who was a bit "Ah, shit. RTM isn't gonna work for me now... what was that thing about Toolism? Yeah, that'll work! I'm a Toolist!! GoToolsYAY!" Ossomer is actually taking the time to consider his position and make a judgement on what this all means regardless of where it leaves him socially.
I bet he needs a hug.

Rolan7 wrote:I'm pretty sure he's going to talk to Queen Bea.
He blames himself for everything that's happened to Jetstone, he's filled with regret and the idea that he wronged Trammenis all this time. He's going to abdicate by walking through the portal... or so he thinks. He may have a very awkward meeting with Parson in store!
