Seriously, usually, a leader who leads from the rear will never get anywhere near the front unless they believe they will win, and the troops know this. So a leader retreating from battle hurts moral, but a leader stepping into the thick of it, from the rear usually gives moral a huge boost. Likewise, it should hurt Jetstone moral once they realize that the enemy warlord left safety to lead this battle personally.
1. Is there a moral boost?
I think there is.
2. I speculate that the moral boost is usually = to the leadership bonus. But, this might create a special situation that creates a multiplier of Parson's usual +2.
Haven't seen Transylvito's reaction yet. They must be rather distraught.

So, how will Parson's leadership of 2 translate to reality? I'm guessing Fud will get really fired up,
[/quote][/quote]but then Parson will ruin it with a battlecry like "Learn by doing!"
IIRC, a morale boost would increase Loyalty, which isn't much necessary if your army is decrypted. Actually only the casters and hobgobwins would benefit.
Now that I'm putting all of it together, this would be a nice moment for Parson to find out he is a caster (a Signamancer I hope). He is meeting a powerful Hippiemancer AND a Predictamancer, just before going into the front.

We know that Janis said he was a Hippiemancer. She may have been lying to protect him and/or to convince the other casters to defer to her in handling the situation (presumably because of Parson's importance in the plan that remains only partly known to us).

Me, either. I always visualized (audiolized?) that scene as more of a Charlie Brown type "Good grief."Infidel wrote:I never saw that ["Learn by doing"] as a battlecry.
I must have missed that WOG on Parson's casting school. Can you point me at it. please?Infidel wrote:Yea, I remember the discussion. But with WOG that Parson's cast school has already been stated.

When it is not your turn, and someone moves into the space you're on (meaning hex or city zone), then you can engage them.
There is a natural turn order. When sides ally, their next turn is shared at the latest slot in the day of any of the allied sides.
In Erfworld 39Erf-b1-p038 Jillian heals at dawn, while Erfworld 52/Parson's Klog 6Erf-b1-p046a states that Ansom's forces heal at noon.
Ah, that one's not a blooper. Jillian is captured at that point and shares "turns" with her captors' side. Eats prison meals that pop on Gobwin Knob's expense, etc.

We already know Parson is a hippiemancer.

A week or so after the whole revelation from Janis the first time. Right now, I can't remember if it was one of his livecasts or text. But I'll spend my lunch break looking.

Parson is a potato-mancer. End of story.
