Backround:

After the Destruction of Unaroyal the Battle of the Expository Bridge (75 AW) is a the next part of the campaign of Stanley the Tool in his attempt to quest of the Arkentools. Stanley has sent his forces towards Jetstone. Jetstones capital Spacerock has been exposed by the new border with Gobwin Knob after Unaroyal was destroyed, making it his next logical target given the history with Jetstone and the RCC. However Jetsone seemed well prepared for the coming battle, massing its forces at the nearest choke-point, a bridge Stanelys forces must cross to reach Spacerock Expository Bridge.

Jetstone Preparation:

The Jetstone king has allowed the use of some of his precious casters in the battle. FAQ has allied itself with Jetstone and the RCC and placed a small armada of air forces (3 Warlords, 26 Gwiffons, 6 Megalogwiffs and a Turnamancer) in Spacerock (Garrison) to compliment the forces of Jetstone.

First turn:

An initial maneuver by Wanda to capture Prince Ossomer was successful but led to a skirmish in which Foolamancer Jack Snipe and Ansom were injured. This led to her leading the air assault of Spacerock using the recently turned Ossomer. She then entered a ultimately unsuccessful negotiation with FAQ leader Jillian Zamussels who instead of telling her Turnamancer Vanna to go into the Magic Kingdom, ordered her to cast a spell to end Gobwin Knobs turn.

Speculation:

  • Janis has predicted this battle will end poorly for Gobwin Knob.
  • Charlie is indirectly involved in the battle via being Caster_link with Vanna. It is not stated yet if this may be something he is doing for free or as part of a contract agreement with FAQ or the RCC.
