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

Question: Trem has the real crown, why not let Fakely wear the duplicate one?
Anticipation: Parson having his very own Dollamancer and Hatamancer to play with.

Clonely's acting emotionally, though, and trying to atone for all his regrets in his final day. He regrets not giving Ace a chance to shine on his own instead of attempting to shoehorn him into his previous notion of what a dollamancer is. His main concern is the preservation of the side. Having assured that, he's free to make decisions to satisfy his own desires, and he honestly isn't looking past the end of the turn. I doubt most rulers would assume that the kingdom would stand or fall based on a single unit, even a caster, so he indulges himself and lets Ace come with.name lips wrote:Yes, they really should have... I'm surprised he allowed Ace to join the offensive. Sure, he has a strong attachment to Cubbins and wants to rescue him, but if the city is going to fall anyway, that's not just one caster but TWO that the opponent might capture.

Ack, thanks for the correction. Still, 1500 seems like a lot of troops vs. what Parson will have in the dungeon/portal room. Plus as you mention, I don't think 1500 includes the cloth golems, and now they have Ace's bonus and healing too.
Well, Parson will have some dwagons, but not if L. Sylvia sets everything on fire.

Lamech wrote:Actually we can estimate Parson's forces by simple subtraction. We see here that there are 6000ish members of Jetstone out in the field. Now the city has 1500, minus whatever was headed out of the city. All units that had been croaked before Wanda left had been decrypted. The only other forces that croaked were Artemis's knights, the sentries (which weren't in the 6000 to start) and the peeps in the tower (most who I suspect had the brainpower to escape).
Jetstone is currently outnumbered 3 (minusa little in the tower) to 1 and may not even have better leadership. Those cloth golems are nice, but GK has dwagons. Which is better being tough and having lots of health, or being tough, having lots of health setting the whole place on fire, blasting through walls and gassing entire stacks.
It occurs to me that there is going to be fire in the way of getting into the garrison now.
Yes, but they both mitigated some of those losses by decrypting formerly live GK units, and they gained some former JS units as well. They gained a pile of units whilst taking the portal room (if that was the classic combat where each panel the front rank of the JS side would be the front rank of the GK side in the next panel), plus Archer and who knows how many other former JS forces in the courtyard. Hell, Artimis was eligible for decrypting as well, although I'd expect a warlord's decryption to be on-panel.effataigus wrote:Looks to me like you're assuming that GK had zero losses in all that killin. We know they lost some to the courtyard battle, the dungeon invasion, and Artemis' strike.
Agreed and agreed. My gut feel is that GK is still outnumbered, and really needs Wanda there for decrypting. As for the fire? Well, we shall see. It could help GK or it could help Jetstone. Being pinned under rubble isn't a very advantageous place to be when the house is on fire...effataigus wrote:I'm not sure what the relative forces are, but looks to me that GK is outnumbered in the recent update, even if you credit in the pockets of troops we can't see. Anyway, we can probably agree that the big factors here are whether Wanda is around to reanimate and exactly what will happen as a result of Syliva's "plan."
That's an interesting point you raise. Would a doll be shackled? Would a siege engine? Would a dwagon or unipegitaur or spidew or bat or megalogwiff?gameboy1234 wrote:Plus as you mention, I don't think 1500 includes the cloth golems [...]
