The [[Gobwin Insurrection]], occuring after [[Wanda]] betrayed [[Faq]] and swore allegience to [[Stanley]], was possibly orchestrated by [[Wanda]] alone. Where [[Stanley]] would have been controlled by [[Duty]] and disallowed from plotting against [[King Saline IV]], Wanda had weak [[Loyalty]] and may simply have suggested [[Stanley]] take certain important [[Caster]]s on a mission she had created. The Gobwins, manipulated by Wanda into believing they could hold the city by [[Suggestion Spell]]s and/or more mundane methods, attacked the [[city]] and killed Saline. Stanley then returns to recapture the city with complete deniability, and no direct knowledge of [[Wanda]]'s participation in the affair; thus, Loyalty, Duty, and [[Obedience]] are satisfied while Stanley takes command of Gobwin Knob.

Proposed Canon

Gobwins are a non-capital sideErf-b1-p079aSame-site.PNG and are Natural Allies to Gobwin Knob. They are about half the height of Men, have green skin, and fangs. The Erfwiki mascot (look in the upper-left of the window) is a gobwin spearman.

Gobwin infantry units have a significant bonus for tunnel fighting.Erf-b1-p029Same-site.PNG

Any side with Gobwin allies will be unable to ally with Marbits or Elves.

Diplomacy

During the Battle for Gobwin Knob Gobwins were allied with Gobwin Knob and constituted a significant part of its forces.Erf-b1-p077aSame-site.PNG

Prior to the reign of Stanley the Tool, Gobwins broke alliance with Gobwin Knob (which is not typical behavior for Natural Allies) captured the City and croaked King Saline IV.Erf-b1-p079Same-site.PNG Stanley, who was a Heir Designate and Chief Warlord to Saline, inherited the Side and became Overlord, then recaptured the city. Ansom believed that Stanley orchestrated this rebellion to come to powerErf-b1-p034Same-site.PNG; however, he lacked evidence for the accusation.

Speculation

The Gobwin Insurrection, occuring after Wanda betrayed Faq and swore allegience to Stanley, was possibly orchestrated by Wanda alone. Where Stanley would have been controlled by Duty and disallowed from plotting against King Saline IV, Wanda had weak Loyalty and may simply have suggested Stanley take certain important Casters on a mission she had created. The Gobwins, manipulated by Wanda into believing they could hold the city by Suggestion Spells and/or more mundane methods, attacked the city and killed Saline. Stanley then returns to recapture the city with complete deniability, and no direct knowledge of Wanda's participation in the affair; thus, Loyalty, Duty, and Obedience are satisfied while Stanley takes command of Gobwin Knob.

Also, Wanda is more likely than Stanley to have the strategic thinking to pull off a maneuver like this. Wanda may have desired a leader who was more easily swayed when she still desired to attune to an Arkentool.
