Would be an interesting sight, though I can't help but suspect they have a limited life span or number of uses.

Sans a turnamancer (or decryption) or words strong enough to convince him to betray Jetstone, Cubbins etc it seems unlikely.
How about these words...
Parson: "Hi prisoner. So you're a Dollamancer huh? What's that do? Create Battle Bears?"
Ace: "It can do far
more useful things than that. But Jetstone just wouldn't see reason until now. I can create accessories
to make our units stronger."
Parson: "Show me."
* Ace makes a new accessory for Parson *
Parson: "That does sound more useful. How would you like to create accessories
for Gobwin Knob?"
Maybe, though that tact shouldn't reduce him to pliable putty so easily - he's recently had the satisfaction of getting Jetstone to appreciate the value of his accessories. Die or be captured, he'll do so knowing his non-conventional dollmancy was an integral part of Jetstone turning around its fortunes in this battle.
Plus his best accessories all seem to involve some input from Cubbins. Unless the nature of the conflict changes, he'll think any aid he gives GK is aid in them possibly destroying Jetstone and his little buddy, who he's already shown he's prepared to die to save.

I believe this for two reasons.
#1 Jack is clutch
#2 Because Jack trumps King (and Ace for that matter)
Rob loves words having multiple meanings, and Jack's last name is Snipe... he's going to snipe the king?
I picture a verbal sniping. Though I have been wondering if his cane contains some kind of weapon. A sword, maybe.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
