Lord Kasavin wrote:On another note, anyone want to hazard a guess as to what a Regency is? Yes, obviously its there for the pun. However, its apparently not ruled by royalty. Historically, a Regent was an individual who ruled when the actual monarch was still to young to effectively rule and were suppose to step aside when the monarch reached maturity. How that translates in a world where heirs are popped fully formed... I'm still debating.

True, but we don't know if they proportionally committed to the Coalition even more heavily than Jetstone, or was it a minimum contribution like TV's?imgran wrote:HailGreen28 wrote:Sounds like Wanda's force is eating up Unaroyal.

They could of used the shock effect of Ansom being alive when fighting a giant major kingdom.
They were major enough to provide the second largest RCC contingent in the first war.

factotum wrote:The idea that sides can pop any caster they like fails because the Royal Coalition under Ansom had no Lookamancers, which was considered to put them at a significant disadvantage to Stanley in terms of scouting ability. If all of those sides working together couldn't spare a single Lookamancer between them it means that they are extremely rare units, and thus it seems unlikely that casters just "become" whatever their side needs them to be.

sizemore said he was popped under king Saline, so he is not from there... perhaps casters randomly pop, you don't pick to pop them they just do, and you send casters to the MK to be trained? there discipline is picked via a sorting hat and they spend a few turns in the kingdom until they are ready
Do they know about decryption at all? The RCC(v1) members learned that Ansom was croaked, and now he's reported to be alive. If restoration of a croaked unit to life (as opposed to an obvious uncroaked state) is simply unheard of, the obvious explanation is that reports of Ansom's croaking were somewhat exaggerated, and he has somehow been turned.
The impression I get is that Tramennis (and now Ossimer) are still trying to figure out just what the boop is going on....
