Faced for the first time with the question of how to deal with one, they had elected to treat Parson and any other warlord of Gobwin Knob as clients who had paid for "full service." This was an incredibly expensive option that few of Charlie's customers ever went for. It amounted to "the Archon(s) will act as if their Duty is to the client, and will follow any orders, including attacking Charlescomm units." There was also no penalty clause for losing them in battle. The client paid only while the Archons lived.
In theory could Parson hire out a small mob of archons, find someway to sac them, and then just raise them?
I've seen many D&D players do this with hired help. I've also seen similar things in board and strategy games. In Necromunda (turn based unit game) a special character had an extreme end of battle upkeep and our mutant league player would just feed him to the troops and avoid the payment phase (which was eventually banned.)
