yeah can we keep real world politics out of our webcomic thanks. you can try starting that stuff as mature individuals and it's going to degrade into ugly arguements within a page.the internet is global and not everyone likes where your from, no matter where you hail from. so the most mature arguement on politics is not starting one.
as a barbarian she needs to hit the ground and make upkeep. so unless he's planning on hiring her she has better things to do than put up with a him.
All this talk of necessary vs useful really is missing a lot of points. Lungs are not really needed when you don't mind about staying alive, right? I certainly need electricity to keep my way of life.

However, as we've seen, not everyone agrees as to what the Titan's will happens to be. Yes, you can make the "wolves vs mice" argument, but you could as easily make it a "Gumps vs Dwagon" argument; some units are better in the forest, some units are better in the air. Mice might be small and weak in a straight-up fight, but they can hide, burrow, and otherwise avoid the wolf. It all depends on what you're using mice FOR. (The movie example of peanut butter and nitroglycerin comes to mind.) Not all units are popped equally. And an Erfworld full of Royals? Would be rather bloodthirsty, since at least ONE side would immediately start "power-leveling," at the expense of others. Then other sides would jump in, and it'd all come crashing down. Royals are useful and necessary, if only so that there is an alternative to auto-attacking.

Actually, the Titans look more like Elvis impersonators: The quintensional example of Stanley's "Anyone can be King" motif.

Of course, the basic story framework has already been decided upon, so it's not quite the same..but still. must not be that pleasant.

Right now, Jillian is just a powerful front line unit and warlord. But he doesn't need that, he needs her as a royal, which means being able to "Take Tea".
Don King looked at the empty cup and saucer in front of her, tilting his head slightly at it. "Why don't you like tea, Jillian?"
Jillian glanced down briefly, her brow wrinkled. "I dunno." She looked back up at her host. "Does it matter?"
"I feel it may."
BRC wrote:King Don's origional plan was to claim the FAQ site for Transylvito, but with the coalition falling apart, he's going a different tract. Instead, he's going to try to convince Jillian to go to FAQ and rebuild it, restarting the kingdom as an ally of Transylvito. If he simply makes it another city, all he gets is another Transylvito city, but a new Allied capital might be much more advantageous than one city. They could pop FAQ units to complement Translevitian troops, They would get to appoint a new chief warlord, plus get all the other baseline bonuses a side gets just for existing. And what's more, consiering Jillian's mindset, all of FAQ's resources will be directed towards beating Gobwin Knob, which is a boost for Translevito. If they beat Gobwin Knob, they may end up with a powerful ally that owes them alot of favors, or they may have a weak kingdom they can swoop into and capture for themselves now that it has outlived it's usefulness.
