i don't know why wedding bells are ringing for so many people. units pop when ordered, so breeding heirs isn't needed. joining kingdoms via matrimony is unnecesary as you can simply form a contractual alliance.
Do we even know if marriage exists
i still don't understand why FAQ is even vacant? i'm not sold on wanda's story. why would stanley conquer faq and leave it frozen? he takes two casters and leaves?
Took what he wanted, didn't feel that the razed cities were worth the hassle or the resource investment of rebuilding and defending them. The Faq city sites don't seem to be particularly good
city sites, except in that their isolation makes them easy to hide. Stanley wasn't interested in hiding, or in conquering everything in sight just for the doing of it... he was interested in acquiring the Arkentools. Given Faq's location, integrating the cities into the GK side would likely have sucked him into a constant series of skirmishes with Transylvito to keep
them, unless he kept Jack there to keep them veiled. Either way, it's a waste of resources that he can use better elsewhere, and doesn't get him any closer to getting the Arkentools.
When Stanley's situation changed such that his immediate priority shifted from acquiring the Arkentools to finding somewhere he could go to ground and rebuild his power, Faq suddenly seemed a lot more valuable to him. But until then, why bother?
and no-one has stumbled on this place despite the foolamaner (who is now with stanley) had to conceal FAQ from tv constantly according to jillian? either rob left a tonne of plotholes...or faq isn't vacant and jack wasn't the only foolamancer.
It's very probable that active units are easier to spot than razed city sites. That might go as far as razed city sites requiring deliberate searching to locate, while active units are passively spotted (and automatically attacked, unless there's a warlord in the stack) unless veiled.
my favourite theory for now is that faq bought off stanley by offering the traitor and something useful. jack and wanda.
Stanley would have known
this, and wouldn't have headed to Faq with the intention of rebuilding the ruins. And I don't see what else his plan could've been.
faq then used the situation to their own advantage to disband jillian. who as a royal MAY convert to barbarian. wanda and jillian removed from the picture FAQ pops a new heir that better alligns their lifestyle and continues to hide from TV.
"Disbanding", in every wargame I've ever seen, means that the unit ceases to exist. Maybe you get back some of the resources invested in it. We have every indication that this is the case on Erf as well.
another thought occurs, if you eneter battlesapce with someone (which i'll assume is distance based if YOUR entering it) wouldn't TV or others notice their turns being affected. to succesfully conceal the city surely you'd need a turnamancer as well. or maybe we "failled to notice" faq a couple of updates ago. but jillian should have known it was close enough if that were the case.i vaguely recall those thoughts from vinnies perspective and not jillians. so this may be accurate as well.
I'm not entirely convinced that "battlespace" describes a physical space, so much as a mode
. There are plenty of wargames and Final Fantasy-types (I refuse to dignify anything you play against a console with the term "role-playing game") where you do strategic movement and resource management in one mode, and then enter a different mode for tactical combat.
That aside, it seems likely that engagement requires actually knowing that the enemy is there
It's not, in any case, a point in favor of the "Faq still exists" theory.
