Proposed Canon

Jetstone is a side in Erfworld that was, until recently, ruled by King Slately. Jetstone's current ruler is King Tramennis. A new Heir was to be popped in 16 turns, in 91 AW, but the city of Spacerock had to be abandoned before then.

Jetstone is also the name of a Tribe of Men. Slately and his sons are members of this Tribe.

Marbits and Altruist Elves were natural allies of Jetstone, until Jetstone was forced by lack of funds to release them after the destruction of Jetstone's army during the Battle of Gobwin Knob.

Side

Jetstone is a Royal Capital Side, producing human Units, including Nobles and Royals.

Jetstone was the founding Side and a leading faction in the first Royal Crown Coalition, providing the largest contingent of troops to the Alliance.

During the Battle for Gobwin Knob, its troops were led by Prince Ansom, then Chief Warlord and heir to the throne: Prince Ansom fell in the battle. He got better, but it was as a (and the first) decrypted unit under Gobwin Knob / Wanda / the 'pliers.

Capital

The Capital of Jetstone was Spacerock, but it has recently been switched back to its original capital, Jetstone city.

Cities

Jetstone is described as having three level 5 cities in First Intermission 40, of which one is Dhrystone and another is the Capital Spacerock. Jetstone also still controls the Capital site upon which the city of Jetstone was built and the Side of Jetstone founded.

Real World References

The name "Jetstone" seems to be a portmanteau of the names of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons The Jetsons and The Flintstones. King Slately's name is an amalgamation of the names of the bosses on the two shows, Mr. Spacely (Jetsons) and Mr. Slate (Flintstones). The capital, Spacerock, is named according to the themes on the two shows, and may be an amalgamation of the workplaces of the two main characters -- Fred Flintstone's the Slate Rock and Gravel Company with George Jetson's Spacely Space Sprockets. (Fred lived in Bedrock, but George lived in Orbit City.)

The radishes that are the symbol of Jetstone are reminiscent of those from Super Mario Brothers 2.
