The only one with any slight canon support might be the archon, which hypothetically could be promoted to warlord and then to CWL. With Tarfu being a warlord for the woodsy elves, it's possible that an archon could also be a warlord or CWL. But, were that true, why would Charlie rely upon archons with the leadership special and have no CWL? So I'm going to guess that no, archons cannot be warlords or a CWL.bladestorm wrote:As for onsite CWL, Wanda would have been an excellent choice at the time he made that option available.
Or promote the last Archon, just to muck with how they do not know how to handle a CWL.
Or have Isaac go through the portal, hire him on the spot, promote him to CWL
Or to get really out there, send Jojo through the portal, hire and promote him
Because Charlie is paranoid and doesn't want anyone on his side thinking for themselves. Charlie also has no casters. Only Archons who are supremely loyal to him, and some guard units of questionable sentience.
Ansom turned? Ansom was captured by Jillian, who intends to turn him. But I don't think she's even home at FAQ yet. I suppose her turnamancer could attempt it in the field, but right now she's out of juice so that'd have to wait for the Jetstone turn to end, the GK turn to end, and then any other interested parties (since Charlie and Haggar have already gone, and I'm guessing that TV is allied with Jetstone and is going now but only has a bat present).[/quote]bladestorm wrote:Also at the time, Ossomer would have been a prime candidate. That would have sucked though if he turned as CWL. First Ansom, then Ossomer.
No, Ansom didn't turn. He also isn't CWL any more. The progression was sons of Jetstone promoted to CWL and then lost to the side for whatever reason, though due to the structure of that sentence, I can see how it could be interpretted that Ansom turned.
Are you reading this comic? Ansom, the very first decrypted, was CWL for GK until he was captured by Jillian. Then Ossomer, another decrypted, was promoted. There's no reason except for the new revelation that the decrypted can turn to prevent Sylvia from being made CWL. And Ossomer had a lot of pressures on him (that whole "attacking my father and former side" and "engaging in conversation with said father") that Sylvia does not.[/quote]bladestorm wrote:Sylvia is an obvious options. She would most vigourously carry out Parson's commands. But that brings up questions about how well a decrypted could serve as CWL, or if there is some mechanic preventing that (such as Loyalty to Wanda clashing with Duty towards Side).
Not can a decrypted be a CWL, but how well is that going to work in the long run. It's possible, as you example of Ansom has shown, but he's not CWL now, and I don't recall a situation where there was any amount of conflict between what Wanda wanted and what Stanely wanted where he would have to decide whose orders he would follow. The Archons established that Wanda is not under any Loyalty spell to Stanley, so that could be where the breakdown begins. This also ties in with the decrypted Dwagons -- Are they going to be more loyal to the Hammer or the Pliers?
