Maybe casters take longer to actually become powerful, and a level 1 warlord is better in a fight than a level 1 caster.

This was the creation of Wanda. What does it mean?
joosy wrote:Hmm.. I have always wondered about the concept of 'family' in a world without pregnancy/dna/natural death (as far as we know). I had always assumed it was a byproduct of popping a Royal unit but now we have such a scenario in a side headed by an Overlord. Hmm again.
Now I wonder are all popped (not promoted) warlords considered brothers or just royal ones? I also assumed that royalty was just another stat that would lengthen the time of production, increase upkeep, but have a unit that levels faster and has better stats. That would mean there would be non-royal Warlords and even non-royal casters. I noticed that no one referes to Maggie or Sizemore as Lord or Lady so I (once more) assumed they were not royal.
My guess? Sides run by Overlords can pop units with the 'royal 'stat.

Seems like the overlord has an irrational bias against casters since all the evidence points to her being a more valuable addition then a level 1 warlord would likely be.

0 is the additive identity.
1 is the multiplicative identity.
5 is the number of Platonic solids.
48 is the smallest number with 10 divisors.
112 is the side of the smallest square that can be tiled with distinct integer-sided squares.
6379 is a value of n for which |cos(n)| is smaller than any previous integer.
Add them up and you get 6545, which is a tetrahedral number. A Tetrahedron is a Platonic Solid.

Does Erfworld have Linear Fighters (Warlords)/Quadratic Wizards (Casters) going on?
