Yup... Jillian really needs to learn when not to chat up the enemy.
What would YOU say if you'd won with strength and duty and honor every time when suddenly a veiled flying zero-upkeep 100% recycled army of former friends showed up to croak you with massive numbers and bonuses and skulls with little pink flowers?

Yeah..

NOW, it is appropriate to talk about who's holding the Idiot Ball. Although since I have always considered Jillian to be an Idiot (with a capital I), I suppose that's appropriate.

Delurking just to say something: Rob Balder, I hate you! ;)

Just when things started to look up for Jillian she screws it up (there where at least two things she could have done that she did not do!). I guess that's fate...

I think I will need some closure soon on this front of the story. How about posting three pages a day? ;)

It's always a pretty face, innit Jillian. First the hunk in the bedroom of the captured Tower, then the dreamy, blissful Florist. When are you going to learn?

You're sitting in a tree, with an impressively high level Chief Florist nearby from a Side that you know very well uses plant based units. So why, dear Jillian, as you remember how dangerous this woman could be, do you just sit there and let the booping hippie hug the booping tree? I know you weren't popped for your brains, much to the disappointment of your father, but dear booping Titans woman!

However, I wouldn't say that this is Idiot Ball material. The Idiot Ball usually indicates the holder is acting out of character. ...sadly, this little demonstration of evolution in action is perfectly within character for our dear silly Jilly, Titans bless her lovely little heart.

Too bad we know Jillian is fated to survive this, I keep hoping her stupid will get her croaked but it never does.

Now there was an opportunity missed. Wait till the florist gets below your tree, grab hold of the dwagons wings, and order it to let go of the tree. Have the dwagon fall on the florist...though, that'd prolly croak the dwagon, considering how few hits it currently has. Might be worth it though, to kill or incap Haffatons chief caster.

*Jillian gets captured...again* Oh come on! She was so damn close! I pratically groaned when Branch appeared.

Did Jillian even give Faq those coordinates to Haffaton?

I'd like to note that Jillian has a reputation for getting captured when working for Jetstone too. She never really does learn.

Here's a doom combo: Janis Atlantis can end fighting in the hex, and the yellow can crap out. Or better yet, just drop heavy objects from a high height, easily obtained using hats.

Florists are dang scary though.

Also abuse of fugitive rules time! Okay we got a bunch of sides, 1 through 4. Also 1 goes first, 2 second etc.

Side 1's turn: Main attack force moves, but where they end their move, the foul SIDE TWO kidnaps them all. Side one allies with side three.
Side 2's turn: The captured side 1 units enact a daring escape, and find a side 1 scout. Side 2 units are move and all get captured by the dastardly side 3! Side 2 allies with side 4.
Side 3's turn: The captured side 2 units escape, move and find a side 2 scout. Side 1+3 attack forces move. They get captured by side 4. Side 1+3 allies with side 5.
See where this is going? Assuming you can trust side 2-10, side 1 can essentially get their units to move ten times. So if you somehow get access to trustworthy dummy sides (a.k.a. permanently incapacitated rulers), and somehow get access to ten turns of upkeep for massive bursts like that... (decryption)

I think the key to breaking Erfworld is sides trusting and being trustworthy. Or heavy doses of mind control and sedatives.

Man, I didn't like this update. A few too many iterations of "I'm going to tell the enemy my plan instead of just doing it". By Olive as well as by Jillian.

No the only real idiot ball thing Jillian did was telling Olive how she planned to escape. That was truly stupid
(not sure if the flower counts, or if olive was using magic to compel her to take it)

However not suspecting that olive could do something to her in the tree, when there was no engagements allowed, was not unbelievable. When it comes down to it, Jillian is a warlord, not a caster and she's not familiar with the capabilities of hippimancies and florists; that's not stupidity, that's ignorance. Even her father's council were not totally sure about the capabilities of hippimancy. So why should Jillian suspect that a florist could transform a tree into a unit? Hell did any of US guess that during the previous update? Jillian had no idea how the Tree units managed to sneak up on to goodminton, but i did not see anyone here guessing that Olive could transform the surrounding trees into units; and we have META-knowledge on our side.

True, but that's just what Dame Branch does. And Jillian likes to trade barbs.

She actually managed to get herself captured faster than the last time she hit a Haffaton City. I wasn't expecting her to fail as badly as that.

Yeah, that's the big problem with this, no chance of her Croaking.

She held the pink flower to her temple, just beneath the rim of her top hat. It adhered to her head.

I think... I'm worried about the flower on Wandas head...

Yar, we did:
last forum wrote:Tannenbaums might be hard to sneak in, but a caster to animate the tannenbaums with a foolmancy scroll might be easier.
I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone in thinking that. Also, now we know that Dame branch is reckless enough to enter a hex before spelling it up, so no foolmancy is required... she could just stroll up to the front gates. Still doesn't explain the air-defenses, but I'm betting that those are explained by the air battle that happened some turns prior to the fall of Goodminton... or the other plausible theories put forward last forum.

Jillian should have known based upon the definition of florist and the fact that she's now taken multiple garrisons staffed with plant themed units. However, Jillian is kinda dumb, so it should come as no surprise that a young Jillian is a smidge dumber.
