You sure on that? We don't know the composition of the forces. It's possible that they've got some casters and warlords out of the giant Decrypted force.
Plus, given that Stanley has promoted people to warlord, he can just follow Ansom/Parson's advice on who to designate Warlords.
The lookamancers and the findamancers will no doubt have spread (or had spread for them) the fact that their "Perfect Warlord" spell packs the serious punch.

Sounds like a good deal to me. I always finish off an enemy faction after I've seized all their important territories in a war game, even if the individual city/base isn't worth the troops needed to seize it.

In real politics and planning as in our everyday life, many people find it difficult to pay (or suffer) more in the short term if its the wisest course of action in the long term.
Maldeus wrote:Let's not bring real world politics into this. It's irrelevant because there's no indication that the Royal Crown Coalition wouldn't bite the bullet and take out Stanley even if the individual battle wouldn't be worth it, especially considering that Stanley will be striking back in a matter of Turns, not a matter of years.

DevilDan wrote:I like the idea of a profit motive behind the RCC--it certainly rings more true than some of the other explanations. But if GK was such a prize, why would Vinny even question Ansom and Jetstone's participation? That a smart, worldly character such as Vinny wonders about Ansom's motivation suggests that he has reason to believe that it won't be such a profitable venture for Jetstone even if things go to plan.
