There's gotta be a good joke in here somewhere.

That isn't that much older in Erfworld terms. Now how old is Jillian...Swodaems wrote:I, for one, would have liked to have actually seen Jillian's attempts at persuading the court to change its mind. (And a more detailed aftermath of Marie's annoucement.) Sure, the dialogue would probably have been somewhat more boring than this update, but listening to Jillian whine more about her inability to change things grates.
So, it appears that the reason that Rusty isn't well liked in court may be something besides his disipline. My opinion of the court rises somewhat if the reason they dislike Rusty is because of his behavior instead of how he happened to pop.Lamech wrote:How old exactly?
She was 33 turns old at the meeting Jack describes. Royal heirs take 60 turns without a turnamancer, so Wanda is older than Jillian by at least 93 turns.

I do wonder how much of this is just how Rusty popped (a real possibility for a Naughtymancer), or how much is due to being a disused and despised unit. For instance, Ace Hardware got a "satisfied feeling of fulfilling his Duty" even from working on golems he otherwise disliked. But once the tower's spelled up, then given Faq's pacificism a Shockmancer like Rusty may not have any other outlet for his Juice. (Sorry.) Its not a recipe for a well-adjusted Unit in a world where Duty is a real force.

As for Wanda's age, I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter at all in Erfworld culture. I mean, units pop fully-formed, and don't really change much over time. Besides, what's a thousand turns, really? Three years, Earth time? Not all that much in retrospect...
