Dayriff wrote:Imagine it for a moment. They rule FAQ together, protected by Wanda's army of the decrypted. Jill is the Queen, but Wanda is the Mistress, ruling FAQ through her loving dominance of Jillian. Ansom as Chief Warlord to support them on the battlefield and the bedchamber. And if Jillian wants, they can even go after Stanley. Why not?
Is there a reason in the world that Jill wouldn't accept an offer like that?
I think the main problem would be that it was Wanda who lead to the fall of faq...
Think about it, what is Jillian's reason for hating Stanely? it was because she destroyed her kingdom... But it was Wanda who manipulated Stanely to attack for her own personal gain. Add this to her Aggro-blasting Jillian's Fliers when she arrived at GK and Jillian actually has reason to not like Wanda.
Wanda effectively sold out her side and betrayed Jillian once in an attempt to take the hammer; for over 700 turns, Jillian blamed Stanely... Then Wanda betrayed Jillian again in hopes of taking the pliers... The fall of Faq was an unintended consquence, but attacking Jillian's fliers was a direct backstab... Ask yourself, would you forgive a friend for betraying you for his own personal gain? it's like Wanda choose the pliers over Jillian.
Right now, Jillian is confused and doesn't know what she's fighting for... this leads to her contemplating the ideal of being decrypted by wanda... Jillian enjoyed the masoquistic games but she does have limits as she made clear to Wanda in the last book and i think that Jillian is eventually gonna realize the above. Stab in the back for power goes too far to be easily forgiven.

We don't even know that Wanda technically works for Stanley... she didn't have any loyalty spells... plus, we don't know you can disband someone from a distance... there is certainly evidence to suggest this is not possible...
First off, she DOES work for Stanely, she is a unit of GK... the statement that she was under no loyalty spells refers to additional spells from something like thinkamancy. Jillian was under the assumption that Wanda was being manipulated by magic just as Wanda manipulated her; Spells that adjust loyaty and what-not... however, Wanda is still bound to the same duty and what-not as all unit are.
Furtharmore, when it comes to turning, that is something we do not know of as we do not know exactly how turning works. Does the side you are turning to have no say? does one need to approval of the opposing side before they can join them? this is something we do not know.
As for disbanding from a distance, its a very safe bet that it can be done. Erfworld is based off of Turn-based strategy games and no games have such restictions when it comes to dsiband/deleting units

Wanda is NOT a ruler or a Heir... she is JUST as caster
and Without one of those ruling over her, she would disband is she were out in the field, or freeze is she was in a city... only place she can be free would be the magic kingdom
The only hope wanda has for surviving without a ruler/heir is if the pliers gives her the power to survive but that's a huge unknown
