Also why I'm curious to see confirmation of my suspicion that Olive now is/always was the Ruler of Haffaton.
If she was always
the Ruler of Haffaton, that 'Olive as Wanda's Chief Caster' Prediction leads to some interesting questions.
That said, it would explain few things.

Parson has not leveled. He started at level 2.
Actually that is his Chief Warlord bonus, which suggests that he is a level 1 or even level 0, since the position of Chief Warlord increases your Leadership Score (I think)
Iirc, Parson's level (2) was given in the Unit list he recieved from one of his Stupid Meals.
That said he did a bit of fighting at Gobwin Knob, he croaked a Wiener-Rammer, might have scored the croaking blow on the Warlord who'd been riding said doggy and led the stacks that defeated the soldiers that Warlord was leading. If the fight in the courtyard was, for example, considered a series of small engagements rather than one large one, he may have gained quite a bit of experience there as well. So it's not impossible that he's levelled since arrival.

I love how extremely anecdotal evidence turns into a certainty. There isn't a shred of compelling evidence that this is the case. Yes Goodminton's treasury was dwindling, but to say they paid less to promote an heir based on that is very suspect. It is even crazier to assume that this was due to overlord vs royal heir. For all we know promoting an heir costs a multiple of the unit's cost, or based on how many cities the side owns, or how many purple pink pocadots the nearest parrot has.... I think only one of those examples is likely though I still believe they paid the same amount. There is no reason to suggest otherwise

It's a pity neither of you bothered to check Book Zero before you rushed in sneering, because if you had
you might have noticed this:

This morning, Father had sent Delphie into the Magic Kingdom to buy the scroll Wanda now unrolled. It was a fairly hefty piece of magic, and it cost 18,000 Shmuckers, or close to a fifth of Goodminton's treasury. It was not offensive; she could cast it before Goodminton broke alliance. She hoped she would not fail.
And of course after that it's just maths, the Treasury must have been close to 90,000 before the scroll was bought and was reduced to just over 72,000 afterwards. And that is far
less than half the sum required to designate a Prince.
There is simpy no way they can have doubled their money after that.

The trouble with that is, well how do we know that isn't just a bonus for being popped in a Side's Capital?
And when, pray tell, has Parson had the opportunity to meet a Warlord popped in the Capital of an Overlord? To our knowledge, the only living person on Erf who has
met such a Warlord, would be the ever cagey Wanda.
