Okay, so, Ansom. He's Decrypted. Loyal to... Gobwin Knob? Wanda? The Pliers? Details are unclear. But, he's still got all his stats from before - even his specials, like Leadership 10.
So now what happens if Stanley croaks without naming a successor? Do they go neutral? Or is having a royal on your side enough to prevent that - a royal, all of whom have the capability to split off and start new sides anyway?
Wouldn't it be interesting if Stanley were to suffer an accident, just like his predecessor? Then who'd be calling the shots? The Overlord Formerly Known As Prince? Or the power behind the throne?
And what would that mean for someone bound by epic Thinkamancy to obey a dead man?
and in despair i bowed my head
"there is no peace on erf," i said
for fate is strong and mocks the song
of peace on erf, good will to men
