I want Ace to make Parson a lightsaber. Just because.

    First of all, called Parson just making a guard. Surprised by Artemis coming back. Jack has a secret. I wonder what that's about. Ace is still a badass. I can't wait to see the next entries. I'm also happy about the new story-telling style. Sometimes I just have to do work. I can't spend the time reading the text updates so it's really convenient to just listen to them. Thanks for that.

    I just realized why Ace was so impressed by Parson's line about his personal guard. Remember Ace's attempt to sound intimidating? "The Doll's in your court?" Yeah, it's no wonder he likes Parson.

    Parson's gear is the tip of the iceberg. I want to see what Parson has him build.

    Tanks?
    Clockwork soldiers armed with rifles?
    Zeppelins?(everything is cooler with zeppelins)
    Railroads? Possibly underground, using tunnels built by Sizemore
    Predator-esque active camouflage?
    Telegraph?
    A tri mancer link with Sizemore to create the Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man?!

    That's a lot of guessing, but I agree that it seems plausible. I wish we knew more about her, but that seems unlikely to ever happen. Also, let's not forget that the place she is from might only be called "Kansas" without actually being Stupidworld Kansas. I just imagine Wanda touching Parson's mind as she cast the Summon Perfect Warlord spell, seeing the Wizard of Oz in his memory: girl magically transported from Kansas, kills witches of the East and West, and rashly concluding that Parson knew the whole history of el-Efbaum. In other words, the name "Kansas" might just be a coincidence like all the other coincidental names in Erfworld.

    It's not that much guessing; as we saw when Parson was summoned, the spell can be tailored (reference).
    Stanley, when asking for his perfect warlord, wrote:
    Get me somebody who actually wants to be summoned.
    [..]
    Everything should seem familiar and safe to him.

    It's not too much of a stretch to think that those qualities could've been a part of the original spell; with an actual Findamancer casting it, they might even have been assumed in a less precise "we want the best warlord for the job".

    Look on the bright side, though! Judy may be gone, but she wasn't the only one involved in the summoning. Charlie was there, and the original crafters of the spell: Maxwell & Maya Calendar from Haffaton, and el-Efbaum's Findamancer & Lookamancer. Okay, so Maxwell & Maya are dead, but we have no idea what happened to the Look- and Findamancer. They could still be floating around, maybe even in the MK.

    ... HA! It would be hilarious if the Wicked Witch hiding in the trees was the Lookamancer. The Wicked Witch had a crystal ball in the movie, didn't she?

    That's what Ret-conjuration is for! Just add pants in the next update!

    I'm not so sure myself that we've seen the last of Maxwell. But that might be more of an epileptic twee.

    "Ace Hardware could fix that." (And slightly more seriously, what came to mind was something stillsuit-like. For the up-front cost per unit, reduces upkeep to 0!)

    Nah, you guys aren't thinking big enough. Let's get even worse.

    Ace borrows the hammer, Wanda has the pliers, Maggie creates a tri-mancer link.

    Do you mean a kind of specialised stillsuit for Sizemore that deals with his "Raw materials" for his *ahem* personal golems?. That is a devious yet horrible thought. He could "cast" golems out of a hose by his hand or something. Yucky/lol

    Think he means allowing rulers to pay a higher price at popping to allow them not to need upkeep costs on later turns. Basically, all expenses paid units.

    Hmmm. Thank you, but still "no comprende". Focus closer on the term "Dummy" in my sentence, at least in my case. :lol:

    Which brings up a subject that I've been wondering about for some time: Cannibalism in Erfworld. Non speaking units can be harvested for supplies, dwagons love king sized meals, but what about croaked speaking units? They're (probably) made of meat too! Could you undercut the cost of a war by eating the enemy?

    A stilsuit is from Dune. Its a survival suit that essentially recycles human waste to provide water and, if you really want to go there, food. The idea would be to attach a high price up front to popping a unit in exchange for reduced upkeep.

    So instead of POP, then 400 schmuckers every turn, it'd be, like, 20k schmuckers -POP- 0 schmuckers per turn.

    Because the unit would be harvesting its own crap golems which incidentally attaches a hidden price if the side has a Dirtamancer.

    I am so looking forward to what Ace will create with Parson's knowledge of "accessories" from Earthworld. Been looking forward to Ace decrypted ever since he was introduced and revealed to be dissatisfied with Jetstone's failure to recognize his capabilities.

    And you know what? He has a Thinkamancer for a 2-person link now, which will amplify his accessories' strengths and abilities. We might see some GI Joe stuff, like vehicles. We've got jetpacks already without a link, so we're looking at bigger and more powerful. Or Nerf guns that really hurt. How about an army of plastic soldiers? Or the AI driven combatants of Small Soldiers? Can anyone think of a toy that could Dance-fight?

    But I foresee a very powerful combo. Three-link with Sizemore added in. Two Stuffamancers. I could see Voltron. Or, even cooler Gundam suits. Anything in Anime opens up. Sizemore provides the advanced material, and Ace molds it into shape. Truly awesome weaponry. Or Transformers? Dang, all the Star Wars accessories! I almost forgot the most important line of toys ever made! AT-ATs! Landspeeders! R2D2?

    A Dollamancer can't make something intelligent on its own, but is there a link combo that could? Thinkamancer seems the most likely, to me, if anyone can, but maybe some other discipline is more appropriate?

    Oh, I have a link combo for you. Ace - Maggie - Parson. Parson is a caster, remember? (probably Signamancer, like brother Labeler) I think that link up would be a weird feeling for Ace, like linking in a Thinkagram with Charlie. P. S. Did you notice that Jetstone didn't have a Thinkamancer? And neither did Banhammer's Faq... The only other side with Thinkamancer we know of were Haffaton and, currently, Transylvito. And Transylvito has only two casters, which is not enough for Tri-link.

    That seems pretty much like what Maxwell accomplished in Haffaton with the Tinman and Scarecrow.
