TV has 19 warlords (+Ceasar?), and lost 8 since Jillian became Queen. They lost 2 warlords at the battle at the chokepoint, so they once had 29 warlords + 1 chief warlord.
Perhaps, but TV's military power can simply be seen as a powerful alternative to some of the other sides we have seen. Their warlords seem (what with natural flight and dancefighting) gutsier then the warlords of other sides, they can produce lots of cheap bats quickly which can be absolutly overwealming depending on how they are used, plus they have Goyles, Skanks, Firebirds and Thunderbirds...
So I'd say they are very much in the Jetstone range of Erfworld powers rather then the Unaroyal range, they just rely on a small but highly mobile and strong airforce rather then the conventional massed infantry and noble warlords Jetstone or infantry of Unaroyal.
Certainly so far we've only seen 3 sides with considerable airforces - Faq, GK and TV (Charlie kind of counts), and I guess that puts TV in a strong, almost niche, position except when facing enemies that have prepped for fighting flyers (like Carpool did not to many turns ago).

I wouldn't mind a version of that, maybe not that the Don is behind it all, but that he might at least be wise to something going on and is happy to go along with it now because it benifits his side. Simply because I like the idea of Don as the type who knows what is what and that kind of thing.
I am hoping though that all the heir business is part of a bigger, Godfather themed gambit though, rather then Don has just got a royal bee in his bonnet. For the set up we've got I'm hoping the pay off will be very good and Mafia Machiavellian on his part.

Nah, I'm quite the fan myself (or getting there at any rate, I like what I've seen and I'm hoping Trem continues to be good in future).
I'm pretty sure Don King doesn't like Jillian, and is only using her to get a suitable heir...
It's not a bad idea, although he already had a great warrior successor lined up - Caesar. Really the only thing Caesar is lacking is the royal blood, and I guess of late the leadership savvy to see that the Don is probably right to be expending so much effort in fighting GK.
Whatever it is about Don King, I definitely see him as the kind of guy who pits his enemies against each other, and cleans up the mess afterwards... He's a bit of a sneak...
I guess it would fit the kind of HW mafia theme his side has going.

I think the real question is - has everyone forgotten the Tardy Elves?
The giants I'm assuming are still hanging around in Faq, guarding the cities and patrolling.
I admit I've been wondering "What about the Marbits?" but I'm saw all these unfired guns hinted at will be fired in due time.
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.
