Maybe each turn there's a percent chance a special unit, like a Caster or Noble, will pop -- maybe depending on the size/quality of a city, and who's leading it. That's just pure speculation though.
There's also the issue of upkeep. Casters seem to have high upkeep. I think it was suggested that FAQ had to do mercenary work to pay all their units upkeep. Considering the lack of any real army, I suspect casters made up a large chunk of that high upkeep.
I like this line of questioning, though. Parson apparently can't follow orders he doesn't understand -- unlike most units, who instinctively know exactly what their Duty is.
True, he is a stranger in a strange land, where the only freedom he retains is found an ignorance. Or something like that. Also, if Rocking out is better than dance fighting, why didn't we see Rock out at the battle of the pass? Or wa he rocking out while the knights danced?
