Depending on how the stealth golem experiment works, stealth suits may be in the future. It makes sense to test the concept with a mindless, expendable unit, though. Aside from possibly being harder to detect by thinkamancy, if the unit is easily detected and captured then it won't be giving up much in the way of intelligence and isn't likely to be turned.Man in the Mists wrote:I knew Ace + Jack was going to be used, but I figured that they were going to make stealth suits instead of stealth golems.
"Tomorrow I want to try and create a new unit. This might be Jack and Ace, or it might be Jack and Sizemore, but what I want is a mindless, scout-veiled unit. A stealth golem."

Fair enough. Seeing "that noun that" still feels a touch weird to me though.

So unless he merely simulates Foolamancy with Dollamancy, like what Olive Branch did with Flower Power, there's no way the stealth golem will work against Charlie directly. Does "marching into Mordor" mean he's going to send it through Charlescomm's portal, or does he have something more complicated in mind?
Dollars to donuts he's planning on sending it through the portal and seeing how long it takes to get detected, although honestly- Charlie would be insane not to have his portal room warded up with the best defensive spells he can arrange as well as Foolamancy Archons on duty at all times. Any unit, stealth or not, should get zapped in seconds. Parson probably wants to confirm that though, and see exactly what Charlie's defenses DO look like.

Don's threats are in-house.

I guess Parson can casually mention it in the next update, since Jack is going to be stealthing something.
