Are these puns good or are they epicly groan-worthy?
They are quite all right, but I don't see why we needed to off a (former) US Republican Vice-president. Baby-steps people, we'll take on the Elephants after we took care of the Dwagons.
Anyways, our turn is not done yet, so unless the Dwagons pull a sideways Parson and slide to other hexes whilst off-turn, we'll take care of the regular business.
So, I take it Leeroy has arrived at Oldcastle."Most excellent work, Sir Jenkins. If you deem the way safe, the King, Miranda and Lilly shall join you shortly."
My idea is to send the 3 mentioned to Oldcastle. If any other Knight wants out of the Siege of Neufchatel, now's the time to mention it. Alternatively, we could send a couple of the existing Pikers to shield the King and co. Won't be much that we can send all the way to Oldcastle in any case.
But I think those 3 units would suffice, as long as no enemies get funny ideas.
(EDIT: I just realized that for story purposes, we should have made it so that all groups sent to Oldcastle did so under cover of Veils. Oh well. Lilly can Fool, but she was our only Foolamancer anyway. Still, maybe the King/Miranda Stack should meet with Lilly someplace near Neufchatel, just so that the Veil option exists. Mostly for flavour, though.)
After that's done, Joan will move to Neufchatel. Garrisoning our cities properly will be the last thing we do before ending turn.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.
