Wait, "what the MK wanted?" We don't even know if there is a single MK to talk as a collective unit in a practical sense, much less what, if anything, they wanted to be the result of the perfect warlord spell. And how would we know whether what they may want has any point of intersection with what Erfworld "wants?"
moose o death wrote:if not MK, then certainly janis is upto something. wanda is clued into it, sizemore is being used to help control parson's developement. the casters seem to be able to abandon a city and become loyal to magic itself, as wanda says she is loyal to fate. she knows she has further to go yet, but she has told parson she isn't his enemy either.

moose o death wrote:so far all mancers appear to be able to move freely through the MK, to me it looks an awful like the MK is the veilled hand running erfworld. by making magic indispensable as a combat aid, they assure they have plentiful new units popped and it appears fairly trivial for casters to survive cities being destroyed. city-less casters move to MK. wanda had dozens of spells in her stash so they make their upkeep selling spells but where does wanda get the cash. only the overlord has access to the treasury
moose o death wrote:this could be rands at work instead of schmukers but that raises the question of what is a rand and how is wanda getting them, she must be selling something for rands. but what IS she selling. information? she has no problems sharing information with jillian. and has a history of betraying her sides. uncroak spells? seems unlikely to be a large amount of call for units who just die again soon after. i can see decrypt being quite popular at auction. but not uncroak.

i put more faith in the former, but as always we don't have the resources rob has
