I am not so sure about that, at all. Jillian is disliked by quite a few people, and I would almost bet it's an equal number to the ones who like her. Maybe even more.
Really? I thought it was mostly BLAND, restating it in detail every other thread or so. =P
I like Jillian. She's the only character in this ridiculously mis-ethical world fighting for something worth a damn. Many of her critics seem to accept Erfworld's base assumption that furthering your side's interests is somehow a good thing; a responsibility, even. I say there is nothing good about a quest for power for your 'side' in some global free-for-all... but there is a lot to be said for living a free and thrilling life alongside your choice of lovers. Lacking an obvious way to do that peacefully and non-authoritatively, fighting for love still beats fighting for power, both ethically and poetically.

This was when most of Jetstone's top units were out in the field, and would disband if Slately croaked.
Currently, the Jetstone side would end, but inside the city of Spacerock not a whole lot would change. The city would go neutral, but would already be under attack, allowing its newly barbarian population to defend itself as before. 'Course, most of those defenders are also in the tower, so crashing it would probably be a winning move regardless.
And then Wanda could go digging through the rubble and decrypt herself another army; casters, king and 48 warlords included. Which, obviously, is why all this won't succeed... but it will be fun to watch.
