Okay, so they have head-mounted shockamancy guns. I suppose that counts as a head cannon, for a loose enough definition of "cannon".

Here's the part that I think people have missed. We are assuming that there are 99 original sides. After all, there were 99 documented original sides.

But what if there was 100?

What if the hundredth side was underwater? Maybe some deep, underwater domes, that were trying to stay hidden from everyone? Complete with your normal air breathing units, operating as a real "bubble Kingdom"?

If this kingdom was called Atlanta, and everyone was concerned with working for the greater good -- an "us" mentality -- then the Atlantans would be called atlantaus. Which would get shortened to Atlantis.

Does anyone else that think that this would be a "Marvel-us" idea?
I assume a harryhausen will stop Motion.
Sinbad, The Argonauts, CLASH OF THE TITANS. Harryhausen, you say??
Has anyone pointed out that Fumo's name in Spanish means "I smoke"?
I wonder if Fumo will ever actually join a side. Maybe he'll just remain a barbarian forever, changing from faction to faction after burning down a few structures.

Puff, puff and passed along...

Yeah, at least one person per update thread. A few more than one person in the very first update thread.

No one in particular wrote:

Then he wouldn't be Fumo the Free, any more. So I'm thinking no.

He could still be free, if the side he joins got him as an unasked for bonus to some other negotiation. eg. Free with proof of purchase, or for any trade of 10 shmuckers or more.

Ooh, or if he gets decrypted, and his upkeep drops to 0! Fumo, free of charge!
Prologues like this are worth the wait. I love the small touches Rob puts in there, such as the available malt vinegar, good for both British navy-style fish-n-chips as well as dissolving coded messages.

And Lucy's calling Tanya "Cap'm" - great compromise between Cap'n and Ma'am.
The tackiness of predictamancy is in view. The very turn Fumo resolves to never turn to Carpool, Cryptolomey makes his prediction that he'll turn to Atlanta.

Give or take an N.

Also, gun whales are basically the larger version of "sharks with freakin' lasers".

Fumo's affairs may not have given him much experience with any kind of boat but he'll end up with a keel-er yet.

Hmm...needs work...
