End, Issue 1? End? END? Noooooo. Such an enormous cliffhanger, still I'm sure the time will fly by. *Looks at watch*
And all most interesting. I wonder what this ugly idea is, and who it is ugly for. I'm currently reading it as ugly (primarily) for GK - like "it wont be pretty, we're going to take losses, but I think we can save Wanda".
And Sizemore, Sizemore, Sizemore... I wonder if he came up with that himself, or did Janis/Maggie push him towards that mindset?

I don't exactly recall the words but I remember concluding that it meant boop would hit the fan in this conflict...
I guess in a way it has. Granted, units aren't running around like headless chickens but: 1st - the attack on Spacerock has been halted for now, even if Wanda somehow escapes (I assume), 2nd - Ansom, a decrypted, has been captured 3rd - any minute now Parson should start getting reports of GK cities being attacked...

Sounds quite Vlad the Impaler-ish (just replace friends with... well, everyone that isn't his enemy.).

I could imagine it, but it does seem pretty far off. At the moment Faq has three fairly secure cities (unless you had lots of powerful flying units...) and has been relying a lot on TV financial support to maintain the small number of units it currently has. Jillian's looting will ease that dependency in the short term, but long term... well, unless something big happens in her part of the world it's hard to imagine Faq with the forces to become the primary opponent of GK, or resisting the kind of dwagon forces GK can amass, as opposed to Jetstone, the most powerful side we've seen other then GK.
Of course I guess there is a lot of stuff that has been foreshadowed. There is the Gobwin/Marbit mystery, a potential coup from Caesar, maybe Trem will becoming king of a Jetstone significantly reduced in power and needing knew ideas since massive infantry armies aren't possible...
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.
