From the ground, this looked exactly like he had blown up his own head. Nobody ever told him that.

shneekeythelost wrote:Twenty Eight Archons. Holy boop... that was about as many archons as was necessary to take over GK before everything blew up. So, just in air forces, Stanley now has enough to take over a heavily reinforced capital city with one of the highest defense ratings in ErfWorld. NOT counting the Dwagons.
Rebuild GK's army to a size sufficient to take over the world? Check.

That certainly seems to be, from his reaction, the show of bravado and jealousy... that's almost textbook behavior when someone is afraid.
That's actually pretty smart coming from him. Whether or not Wanda plans to betray him (and I think not), she is the most dangerous unit in GK right now.
Parson is the most dangerouse by a long shot (as he can break the rules and has non thinkomany (real personal) loyalty of the casters and Ansom). But Stanley does not know that. Stanely has always shown signs of paraoinia (after the battle at the donute he said something to the effect of I don't know if you failed me or betrayed me). Now that Stanley is NOT so special (there is another Arkentool wileder in GK) that is arguably more powerful (and face it a heck of a lot smarter and deviouse) he is scrambling to prove that he is top dog. In fact at some point in the future I really expect Stanely to try to do something to cut down Wanda's power and maybe even try to croak her.
