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]].
 
-
[[Toolism]] is 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. His worldview is rather shaken when he discovers himself to be in command of a second Arkentool holder, [[Wanda]].

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. He would probably have failed as a [[Chief Warlord]], without the advice and support he received from [[Wanda]], but with her aid he eventually became [[Heir Designate]] to Saline.{{erf|1|079}}

[[Wanda]] contacted Stanley after hearing he found the [[Arkenhammer]]. Together they planned to attack Wanda's [[kingdom of Faq]]. Wanda had intended for Stanley to lose the battle so she could claim the Arkenhammer herself, but Stanley ultimately won and sacked the kingdom.

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 Wanda's encouragement, Stanley decided to start a quest for the other [[Arkentools]].{{erf|1|147}} The exact course of this campaign is unknown. However, despite having the Arkenhammer and the assistance of [[Wanda]], Stanley's campaign failed utterly. [[Gobwin Knob]] lost 10 out of 11 cities, and the only Arkentool they found was wielded by [[Prince Ansom]] of [[Jetstone]] in combat against Stanley's forces. With the loss of [[Manpower the Temporary]], and the looming [[Battle for Gobwin Knob]], Wanda convinced Stanley to purchase and use the "[[Summon Perfect Warlord Spell]]".
