I mean, did anybody expect them to say something like, "Oh yeah, we hang out with Charlie all the time. He's totally awesome," or, "His face is well-known to all his units." We already knew we weren't going to get that kind of information here.
There are "tower" archons who have seen him. Ofc, that doesn't mean he isn't the dish, as the first order would be to tell nobody (including the other archons) about it.
I guess the archon who said "Please hold for Charlie"
, was one of the tower archons.
The next question should have been if the tower archons ever leave the capital and if so, they should attempt decryption of them.
He should also ask for a full list of Charlie's rules. That would allow mind games when he takes to Charlie, as he could drop casual references to the rules.

True, Stanley is getting at least 2 per turn. Ofc, they also require upkeep, so maybe in both cases smuckers could be an issue.
Thats going to be a problem for Charlie. A big one if the plans for a dragon gathering dragon relay pan out. And this comment about the world being so huge... there are two arkentools in this section we here about. (Three?) It seems likely that the "four know" arkentools are really like the "known world", and there are probably a few more than four. And Charlie's main source of cash is telecommunication? He would be so rich if he could add mathamancy too that.
Right, the others of them might already have been captured by some far off sides. Maybe they could even be attuned.
