Sieggy wrote:Is this all the same turn that the blue dwagon popped, Wanda decrypted Ansom, Parson cursed, and Stanley returned? I'm assuming so, since the headers that far have it as TBfGK +1. Given that, I don't know how anyone, either Charley or Don King could be aware that GK has been rebuilt, Stanley is back, or that Wanda has done her thing. Given that Jack is there, I'm also assuming that he's capable of veiling everything so that lookamancy would only see carnage.
Or is there kind of a 'metagame' awareness of what is going on? Stanley had no idea what happened until Maggie contacted him, so how is it that anyone else was aware that Ansom had croaked? I can't see anyone reporting back in the middle of trying to avenge their fallen warlord, what with a pitched battles going on and all that . . . If there were no warlord survivors of the Mt. Doom eruption who had communications ability, how is everyone aware of what transpired? The last thing anyone (that being Charley) knew was happening was TPK, and then <blink> no further communications. Charley would be aware of his losses, via the Arkendish I would guess, but unless he put the word out, everyone else should be completely in the dark.
The blue Dwagon was popped at the same time as Caesar told Jillian of the change of plans (dawn), which is before GK was rebuilt or anything else. So all Don King knows is that the Erf equivalent of a nuke went off at GK. I'm just curious as to how they're getting their field reports and intel . . .

Typo, or previously unencountered reward system?

Kreistor wrote:Outright Speculation:
Don King is going to ask Jillian to join Transylvito Side. We know such things can hapen: join without capture in this case. This may bring the ability to Pop Gwiffons to Transylvito. Right now, they don't appear to have more than bats and vamps. Vamps riding gwiffons can scoot around a lot of terrain to swarms of bats in different places, fighting on a broad front with the same warlords. Serious ability in that. And with the recent evidence of GK's willingness to use casters in front line battle, they may be looking at scooting casters from battle to battle, too.
This may be an invitation to a Royal Wedding, with Jillian wearing white.

The rest seem like major assholes with no class (come on, flashing steel in such a situation is thuggish to the extreme, and you'd expect better from the Transylvito top enforcer/warlord).
