Definetly betting only one headgear per character. Though for all we know there will be a mad hatamancer who will have a spell that lets him wear hats within hats. But I could see wig and hat as a reasonable real life combo.

    I totally missed that. I was thinking Balder was referring to that exciting mixed fruit juice, which was odd since King Banhammer drinks tea. But if he wanted to try something else occasionally I imagine it would be loj.

    King Banhammer doesn't always drink juice. But when he does, he drinks loj.

    Stay thirsty, my Units.

    I was referring to characters in games where they're wearing a helmet but the sprite still shows their hair. So, the wig goes OVER the helmet. ;)

    She was on a Gwiff and ready to leave. She got off and intentionally used the flower. That's not an addiction.

    That's a plan.

    Perhaps to demonstrate the nature of Olive's peace? Peace through narcotics addiction is not Banhammer's idealistic vision of the future.

    At the bottom of the tower, Olive offered Jillian a fresh bud.
    Resentfully, she took it.
    “Nobody else touch one of these things,” she scowled at the Faq commanders, taking the flower and placing it in her hair. “That’sh an orderrr...”

    That's an addiction. Just watch a smoker, trying to quit, standing around other smokers and being offered a cig. Same behavior - scowl and accept.
    Jillian knows it's bad for her, she orders others not to try it, but she partakes anyway.

    While it does seem like one headgear per character in Erf, in Ragnarok Online, they allow for up to three pieces of headgear: Upper, Mid, Lower. Some headgears are Upper+Mid, some are all three, etc, but it does allow for multiple.

    So there is at least one game out there that allows for it and thus the possibility could exist here.

    But none of the headgear we have seen for characters that even remotely resembles partial cover have been attempted to be used with multiples. And is Ragnarok Online a turn-based game? I haven't played it, and the wiki page doesn't indicate whether it is or not. My experience with turn-based games is a super simplistic style of armour and weapon usage. One slot for head gear, one for body armour, one for boots, one shield, and one weapon slot. Size of items in the slots does not matter. A greatsword three times the size of the wielder or a dagger takes up the same amount of slot space. There are some minor variations, such as leg armour, hand armour, etc, but each one disregards items size. In order to wear a ring, you have to remove the gauntlet. Some have designated two-handed weapons which takes up the shield slot as well. Other you can two-hand a weapon and still use the shield slot. Really simple mechanics that makes learning the system easy, but looking for an exploit difficult.

    Whether or not it was a plan, she definitely made her point about not touching the buds.

    Yeah I'm suprised I forgot Ragnarok considering how much I played it. It's not turn based but it's equipment system is pretty tame. Actually less than some of the online games I feel are far more erfworldy. But the Upper Middle Lower was mostly a cosmetic thing rather than a mechanic thing. Middle and Lower being almost worthless, save in rare situations which often depended on server, pre/post renwal junk.
    In most other games the mid and lower probably wouldn't even be labeled headgear.

    It's hard to tell where erfworld falls on the spectrum. It's no warhammer you get to choose weapons maybe. But it definetly may not be modern style MMO with 17+ equip slots. It also may have no limit. The last one there seeming unlikely.

    I took that as more of "That's how you use magic to promote peace. What can you guys do?" followed up with "Dude, if we had one of those, maybe Jillian will learn to relax a little bit and enjoy court....hire a hippiemancer and play that at dawn every turn."

    I may just be prejudiced from only ever having Jillians view of him, but I read it as him being surprised, not necisarrily caught off guard; but not having expected that. I've been assuming that the city wide non-engagement spell is specifically a feature of the Chillaxe, and that the Chillaxe was probably a result of the the trippy mind-linking that had been goign on, like the turning box and the hero buds. I could be completely wrong on all of that, but the Chillaxe seems a bit over powered for a standard magic item.

    Well we know that people did know of them. Jillian says at some point that the side (and Banhammer) was simply so old that everyone who had once known them was now long gone. So I'm assuming it was a normal side before Banhammer came to power/had some huge change of heart, and they pulled some kind of stunt to trick people into thinking they were dead. Or perhaps they formed permanent alliances with everyone nearby and simply waited until those allies had died without revealing the secret.

    After the end of Book 2, Sofaking could become a bubble side. It only had a minor presence in the RCC, and has had no actual confrontations as part of RCCII (May not even be a part of RCCII. It also only sustained minor losses during the entire BfGK. The main focus is between GK and the main factions of the RCC. Unaroyal is already gone, and Jetstone will fall shortly. GK seems to be targeting the major players, and Sofaking has fallen off the radar. All it has to do is keep a low profile, and once a Side rises up to take out GK, no one will really remember the lowly Sofaking. History in Erfworld remembers the major victors and the major losers, so mediocrity gets easily forgotten. With no victories or losses on record, who is going to know of your existence?
