Parson dies in the inferno due to the tools stubbornness.. wait I'm going somewhere with this...
That in effect causes wanda to flip out at the tool and go barbarian along with all of her decrypted units which seem to bear her insignia and logically would be loyal to her not the tool. They finish off the last remaining dwagon or 2 capturing the city (now a capital again) for themselves allowing wanda to walk into the inferno with sizemoore (who also goes barbarian) putting out the flames and decrypting Parson and Jack (and the remaining corpses from the capital fight).. exofacto, new side, with a decrypted 0 Upkeep warlord of awesomeness and foolamancer (who can hopefully still cast). Thus a new struggle begins, as none of the royal sides like wanda or parson, the tool would also hate them for their abandonment, and they would have every reason to not work with charlie ether. Leaving their only possible "Ally" be queen jillian who is technically in a very similar boat with the new side. This IMO is a much more likely scenario for a new side to begin since wanda is infact a Royal (like jillian) She has units on-site for the capital capture and we know that she trust Parson more than the tool.
Let us also not forget the massive, mostly decrypted army sitting outside the capital a few hex's away that would also likely turn. Thats a brilliant start for a new side IMO.
CharlsNCharge: Either GTFO or DIAF, your choice.
They don't feel anything about that, since that isn't Parson's plan. He started to tell Stanley that he needed Sizemore. He didn't say anything about leaving Spacerock. All units are popped with knowledge of the rules, they should know that Sizemore can stop the inferno.Aquillion wrote:Parson's plan is to open the portal and go through and leave those decrypted guys to die in the fire.
I wonder how they feel about that? I mean, it must be pretty obvious at this point that his plan involved the portal, which none of them could use even if it were open.
A lot of good authors use the anyone can die trope. Most of them don't kill off the protagonist. Take Weber's Honor Harrington series: Lots of main characters die off over the course of the (to date, more pending) 12 books in the series. This makes sense as it is a wartime based series of books, and people die in war. But Honor hasn't died. Similarly, when your protagonist's name is an actual anagram of 'a protagonist', you can be fairly sure that others may die around him (Misty, Bogroll, Jack, others) but he will survive.mroozee wrote:The boldest thing the author could do at this point in the story would be to let Parson die.
First and foremost, it would be shocking
Putting time into one or several master plans doesn't do anything to counter the fact that Charlie constantly pulls new powers and abilities out of his ass any time he needs them. It is a tiresome plot device, at best.kiyote wrote:Charlie is not the Mary Sue of the story.

He's already used the word "kill"....

In any case, that aside, does anyone have thoughts on the viability of my 'multi-link long-distance-casting' plan other than "being rescued by someone else? ew)."? I'm curious to see what those who are more familiar with the rules and such have to say about it...
