Very nice. Jillain and Faq are going great guns - thanks in no small part to Charlie and TV.
I still wonder what the Don's game is though, he seems to be putting a lot of eggs in Faq's basket.
And Vanna the Turnamancer makes her appearance (lol at Jillian's dungeon talk) - a very useful type of caster to have it seems, and prisoners can definitly be turned. I guess TV might have 200 more units now after retaking Chockula. I also like finding out about acquiring casters as well - a side can't choose what casters pop, but their nature might influence it, or their needs (which would explain Sizemore popping when Saline needed someone to help mine).
And new units - Western Giants. They sound pretty impressive. Plus another side apparently staying out of the GK/RCCII conflict - the Jitterati. Royal I guess. And what process breaks a natural alliance? Purely schumckers? But am I the only one struck by the similarity of this to another event in the past? A side is betrayed by their natural allies? King Saline and his Gobwins?
Could Charlie have been involved... perhaps that is the origin his and Stanley's mutual dislike? (Heh, ninja'd) Well, maybe not, but it seems regardless of the face Charlie is putting on with Parson he is doing very well in helping Faq - but like the Don I wonder why it is deemed so important (other then the fact Jillian is the only one of the RCCII working with him).
And am I reading it right? Are Vinnie and Jillian now officially an item? If so - Awwwwww. Although Vinnie, hooking up with you dead friend's girl?

Rather, that Scone (or any unit) takes a certain amount of ... persuasion ... to turn, a-la Dungeon Keeper. That persuasion needs some time to apply. Since Turnamancers reduce the time cost of actions ...
Yes, that is what I thought too, or a varieation at least. I thought if you had a prisoner for a certain number of turns, plus some extra effort, you might turn them to your side. A Turnamancer would reduce the time and effort perhaps.

I don't know why but I imagine her like the characters in various Asian martial arts films - the princess or whatever disguised as a samurai or similar warrior. But I imagine she would cut an imposing figure, not many sides rulers seem to personally go onto the field - a real warrior queen it seems, by nature, and not just out of necessity.

Haven't they always? Jillian hates Stanley with a Passion (capital P), and Faq has been in the RCCII since it's re-founding.

And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
