If Wanda is
part of an allied non-Capital Side in the Future Era at Gobwin Knob, then Parson pretty much stole her Scrolls and got outraged about it during the Battle for said City, what a complete and utter boop.
So where to from here for Wanda? The approaching cavalry suggests capture, but she's still the Lady Wanda Firebaugh, she still has full juice, she's defeated armies with a smaller stack than that. So if Clay did Boost her, well she might defeat this raiding party, which may in turn grant the forces needed to repel the second and so on. If so... might she end up allied to Haffaton? She can't poison them from without. I'm actually hoping she gets to spend at least a few turns exploring ruins and taming horses. Some time spent adventuring would look good on her.

Also another thing to mention is that Faq didn't send mercenaries to nearby sides, but sent them to far off sides; sides so far that most don't even know their existence. Futhermore is the fact that Jack would have to be away from Faq for many terms and there is no telling what scouts might pass by in that time. Also i feel safe in assume Faq's isolation status... i mean if Faq wasn't isolated then how did they become isolated? Kinda hard for them to make all other nearby sides to forget about their existence.
The alternative seems plausible considering how we already saw a pair of sides get into Goodmitten's airspace in a very sudden manner. hell the update even mentioned that frenemy and Quisling were now allies with haffaton. If they could invade and potentially conquer goodmitten by air once, they could do it again with haffaton's forces to aid them. Without the uncroaked, goodmitten doesn't have a whole lot and it would not take much to finish them; it may not even take a very large army to finish them
Yes, Scrolls can be bought for a pretty penny, Jack? He can make the booping things to order. As for the rest, Faq's distance from Goodminton is unknown and unknowable, it only needs to be close enough. Faq has a Predictamancer and again, Scrolls. On the subject of their isolation, their set-up requires multiple high level Casters in order to work and they don't grow on trees. Even if they are
hiding, as long as they keep their Capital from being discovered everything's fine and, well, Foolamancy.
Frenemy and Quisling may have shown their true colours and allied with Haffaton, but the prior update made it clear that they'd pulled out of the area and Frenemy took a pasting last time in anycase. Their last attempt was defeated by a five Unit stack without the Fellows getting involved and of that stack only Wanda left the Capital. Furthermore, to pull off a stroke like this they'd have had to kept their forces within striking range of Goodminton, without being discovered by Boosted Scouts, for turns on end.

But more specifically, Stanley's description of Wanda Turning to GK when he attacked FAQ. Wanda is clearly a full fledged unit of Gobwin Knob.
Yes we do. Rulers though... Can
a Barbarian leader stop being a Barbarian without founding a Capital Side?
His description consisted of the word 'Bam', plus he's an idiot who was talking to someone he considered to be his intellectual inferior. Even if you're right, what's to stop Wanda saying 'I'm a Barbarian now' and walking away with the all the gems she can carry at any given point?

Wanda will, at least, become an unit for Faq and later on to GK. Hamster would've certainly noticed if Wanda was her own side.
Wanda stopped being an Overlord when Goodminton was destroyed, she's leading a non-Capital Side now, I don't think we actually have a term for that beyond 'Barbarian'. Anyway, Parson didn't realise the Gobwins and Hobgobwins were his allies until someone told him so. The same could easily be the case with Wanda, especially if she's actively using her magic to avoid... trouble. Stanley's Stanley after all.
