Art in that last panel looks a bit wonky to me, like other people ave said. Also, Bats are probably in the foreground, but they just look huge.

    [Edit] Wait. What if Jillian is not en route to TV, and is a distraction for the main force, unintentionally?


    I actually think that Jillian is planning to attack GK and is completely oblivious to all of this panic on TV's part. However, I also think that Charlie is going to show up in force to "persuade" TV to hand Parson over.

    Proof you can have multiple natural allies at once.

    Elves and Doombats. Now Parson can have massive amounts of bats for GK as well.

    Parson just won the initial gambit but still the look of all the bats is hilarious.

    And he can pay out over 1000 in his gem hoard but then he really lets people know how much he *had* and then Charlie loses because once GK's portal gets carnied how many millions worth of elves in the course of two turns is going to wreck the MK and CC?

    Charlie can't afford to give GK that many schmuckers.

    Whoa. I hadn't even thought about that. I was thinking, 200 bats, chief warlord in the hex... assuming Parson is named Chief Warlord of GK again, that is. In a nice bit of irony, it was fighting against Transylvito that taught him that trick. Bonus upon bonus upon bonus... times 200. 25 stacks of 8 each, if he wants to take advantage of that too.

    Called it.

    Of course, in order for the story to be interesting, something must go terribly wrong with the plan, like, if Jillian is en route to Jetstone...

    Doombats aren't natural allies. And anyway, we already knew that you could have multiple kinds of natural allies, because in Book 1 Gobwin Knob had both Gobwins and Hobgobwins.

    FAQ could strike TV independently of Jillian. Jillian is probably going after GK bit between the teeth and all that.

    Do the other kingdoms even know the actual physical location for the MK?

    I like how every time Caesar goes to visit Parson he's more and more casual about it. At this rate, next time they talk they'll be sitting on the couch together playing video games in Parson's cell.

    I wonder what Parson is planning to do with those bats...my money is on literally covering TV's commanders in bats as living shields. Not sure how that can croak any of the archons though.

    Zero.
    Jillian doesn't know about Charlies' portal and even if she did, Charlie wouldn't let her use it as he doesn't want Wanda to live.

    Yea, I was like WTF Caesar, visiting Parson in your underwear now. Seriously, casual mode there.

    i hope the deal stands in the way it is in the last pic. Parson got his bracer back as well.

    So far i think the 5 million per unit is a maximum penalty cap
    the minimum cap is 500k
    and between its one half of the treasury (the lesser counts)

    so when charlie is down to let's say 8 millions, a bat costs him 4 million, another 2 million etc...

    Don't let her cast... And especially don't let her link with Charlie! What are the odds on Bunny detecting the link somehow and Vanna getting croaked over the misunderstanding when she links with Charlie for the heir boost?
