GK would have a hell of an army (until it had to pay upkeep)
Part of why Decryption is so awesome and world-changing is that decrypted units have no upkeep. Erfworld is a story about fate giving way to freedom.

Does it scare anyone else how easily Sizemore stopped the inferno? He's definitely must be at the height of his class. Whatever Hamster does, I hope it favors the Tool and not Wanda. Stanley was monumental in changing over the portal. Saved all the bacon.

I thought that the corpses are treated as a resource with expiration date. Or was it just that you need to claim the corpse in some alloted time and then it decays slowly, uncroaked or not?
Corpse decays at the start of your turn. or depop if it was not move outside of the hex.
http://www.erfworld.com/2011/11/inner-p ... isode-006/The body of the scout would have depopped at dawn, had they not moved it out of the hex where it was croaked. Claimed as a spoil for Goodminton, it would only decay a bit when they started their turn later in the morning. Wanda wanted to be with the body when that happened, so that she could study the process. Her life was full of firsts, but the firsts within her discipline were the ones that most held her interest.
Now city Hex.. city zone.. do they works the same way, i.e. if you move the corpse from the courtyard to the outer walls and vice versa

I'm hoping this doesn't happen. The magic kingdom at large appears to be composed of people who are just doing their best to peacefully live out their lives and have decided that neutrality is the best way to do so. Sure, they don't like it when a threat like Parson appears and say as much, but we didn't see anyone but the Carnymancers actually taking a go at him. During Parson's time in Spacerock, Wanda, Maggie, and Sizemore were left alone by everybody despite their connection with a controversial side.vintermann wrote:Conquering the magic kingdom is just the sort of over-the-top munchkin exploit that could win you a rigged game.

Also, the only other master-class casters we've seen are, well, freaking epic. Wanda is Master-class, and she's been around for forever, she was doing a *lot* of work for Haffaton for a long time, and then a long time in FAQ among a lot of othe casters. Jack is master-class, and he was basically FAQ's primary method of survival for a long time.
Sizemore was sort of left on the sidelines by Stanley - he just stayed home and made crap golems for most of his life. He didn't get in to doing really fancy things until Parson got here. He could have been a 'rock star' in the MK because he was a dirtamancer (he's said those are rare) and because honestly he's just a nice guy to work with so everyone likes him, not because he was necessarily at the peak of his discipline.
