Stanley the Tool (originally "Stanley the Plaid") is the [[Ruler]] of the [[Gobwin Knob|Plaid tribe]]. Also referred to by his enemies as Stanley the Worm. He is the founder of the ideology of [[Toolism]], the belief that Royals are clinging to a dead mandate and the true plan of the Titans is for the possessors of the [[Arkentools]]. Specifically, Stanley argues that the Titans have a plan for ''him'', and maybe for the rest of the world too, who cares.

Stanley is a nearly perfect example of the Peter Principle. Before the story started, Stanley started out as a [[Piker|piker-class]] infantry under the command of [[King Saline IV]] of the Plaid. He was probably a truly great [[Piker]], because Saline promoted him to the rank of [[Warlord]]. He was probably an adequate Warlord, until he found the [[Arkenhammer]], tamed [[Dwagons]], and became a exceptional Warlord. Eventually Stanley became [[Heir Designate]] to Saline IV.{{erf|1|079}}

At one point, Stanley took a number of the Plaid's casters, [[Sizemore Rockwell]] among them, on a special mission of undisclosed purpose; when Stanley's group returned to [[Gobwin Knob]], they found that it had fallen to an attack from the [[Gobwins]] breaking their alliance.

With the dwagons, casters, and the bonus from the Arkenhammer, Stanley easily retook the city and became the [[Ruler]] of [[Gobwin Knob]].{{erf|1|079}} [[Ansom]] believed that [[Stanley]] orchestrated this rebellion to come to power.{{erf|1|034}}

Initial Stage

Zamussels's Capture

The Battle for Gobwin Knob begins with a reconnaissance mission led by Barbarian Warlord Jillian Zamussels on behalf of the Royal Crown Coalition and Jetstone Chief Warlord Prince Ansom. Despite being instructed to avoid engagements, Commander Zamussels conducts at least one action against a target of opportunity. Jetstone Warlord Sir Webinar is sent with a force of heavies to provide support to Commander Zamussels. Before Webinar can assist, however, Commander Zamussels encounters a force of Gobwin Knob Dwagons. She is captured and the rest of her force is croaked. Webinar's force, including Jetstone Warlord Dora, encounters and defeats a group of Spidews. During this timeframe, Lady Wanda Firebaugh, Gobwin Knob's Croakamancer, casts the Summon Perfect Warlord Spell, summoning Parson Gotti to serve as Gobwin Knob's Chief Warlord. He is given the title "Lord Hamster."

Zamussels's Release

Main Article: Jillian the Mole

Lady Firebaugh then proceeds to interrogate Zamussels and casts a suggestion spell on the prisoner before Gobwin Knob releases her the following turn, intending to manipulate Prince Ansom into a trap. This fails due to advice given to Ansom by Transylvito Warlord Vinny Doombats, that side's representative in the Royal Crown Coalition. Ansom instead hires three Archons from Charlescomm and sends them to assist Zamussels.
