Yeah, I think TV is going to take down FAQ, or rather Caesar is after he betrays the king.

On page http://archives.erfworld.com/Book+3/174 Vinny says there are Two Gwiffon Knights as the only heavies left behind to defend the city. Presumably there are also some infantry units of some sort, but she took most of her best units with her to invade Gobwin Knob. So that's Vinny and his bats, it wouldn't take much to convince Albert to change sides, he already wants to. And I completely forgot about the fact that Ansom is currently in the dungeon. So that would be a three warlord stack plus bats against two heavies and some scattered infantry/archers. An easy win in any book.

So the question is still though, what do you do about Jillian. Is it worth 1.5 million to take her out of the equation? Possibly. The only other way around it would be for Gobwin Knob to be consumed by the empire of Translvito and act as a colony to nullify the agreement on all accounts. I just don't see that happening though, unless like Parson turns to TV then convinces Stanley to do it somehow.

Where do you get this 1.5 million number for killing Jill? Even if you're part of the camp that a 'full default' is no different from a standard breach, they'd lose 5 mil for taking her out. Again, assuming that's what happens, there's no way GK would even hesitate to do it. I'm of the opinion that there's a more severe penalty for killing her.
So it occurred to me that Stanley is aging but isn't necessarily decrepit.
Something similar to Saline, Don or Slately being old but not crazily old.
I don't think Stanley is aging - his hair colour is same as it was in the beginning of the book.

On the side note, is it possible to have some sort of notification (e-mail or such) for new pages? Updating a page repeatedly grows tedious after some time.
Stanley's hair color is definitely not the same as it was in the beginning of the book, but then, neither is the colorist. I don't think there's any big meaning behind it.

Sure is - there's an RSS feed. An aggregator will catch when there's an update to the feed, and notify you. I have one that does push notifications, but very infrequently. However, even if you keep refreshing your aggregator, it's like refreshing many sites at once, so it has more utility. There's almost always something new.

You're right, I read it wrong. I thought it said 3 million, but it's thirty million. Even still a bargain.

Given Jed's comment that Stanley is maybe a little too chilled out and Stanley's unusually apathetic behavior, I do think he's aging. That's definitely a shade of grey and not brown anymore.

I used to think Maggie's appearance was just the way the artists interpreted her over the years, but now it seems to me that Rob is pretty attentive to how the art gets his story across.

Jillian is allied with RCC2 so she goes after GK. She'd go after GK anyway, because FAQ is a newer side than GK.

Also, she hates Stanley a lot. So she'll definitely go after GK. :mrgreen:
I could definitely see Caesar attacking Faq once he finds out TV isn't under threat. They'd seize Faq's treasury, capture Faq's heir, and capture Ansom. Even with the gem mines under her, Jillian would be fucked. She doesn't have miners. She has a force made of heavies and flying cavalry. With no treasury, she'd have trouble supporting her expensive army. She'd have to pop diggers just to survive (unless Charlie loaned her more money or gobwins), meaning reprisals would be slow coming.

Doing this would make a lot of sense from Caesar's perspective, which means Don would be staunchly against it.

edit: Is it me or does Stanley's hair seem grayer?


Well, Stanley is based on President Bush. Every president gets grayer and grayer while in office. It's a stressful position to have.

Everyone had good points about Sizemore taking the Arkenpliers. The plan to derail the GM's plans have started. If Wanda's power can reach below the bedrock, then Claud and Ivan COULD be saved if the Predictamancers can convince her to use her hex wide mass decrypt power (should be easy for them). Ivan and Claud being on GK's side would be the best possible scenario for GK. But maybe the GM's will just kill them all over again...
