    Oh for flips sake, new general order: No unit takes a call from Charlie. On pain of immediate disbandment.

    Now if only that order could be applied retroactively. And automatically enforced.

    Well that went from 0 to 60 in a hurry!

    One thing I can't quite make out: is that the pendant doubling as a choker, or is that a new string at play?

    I love how it's both predictable, and unexpected? Like...we all kinda thought it might be coming, but we COULDN'T be sure. And definitely not this way exactly. I'm fascinated to see how the new tower reacts, what this means, how/if Caesar gets out of it.

    And because I am MORALLY COMPELLED to do so:

    ET TU, BILLE?

    Hey! Something I can actually contribute!

    Tlatoani is a Mexica (Aztec) ruler.

    Edit: "Mexica" is not a typo, it's pronounced Meh-she-ca
    Edit 2: fixed a typo for, ironically, typo

    Oh, crap.

    We might get to see what happens when an awakened Tower’s city suffers a decapitation strike.

    If Ceasar remains conscious long enough, can he make Benjamin the heir and pass the regency to him?

    The real question now is, did the Maggie-golem turn too? And is it a good thing or a bad thing?

    Man, the home team sure are acting like suckers lately.

    Someone totally called the necklace being a choker last page. Good job!

    Hmmm. With its string to both Transylvito's tower and GK's tower, the Maggie-golem might just allow the towers to talk to each other.

    200 Doombats vs. 1 caster and ... I dunno how many dolls. Did Bill just take the 2-3 in the throne room with him, or did he take the entire city's worth of dolls?

    Man, I'm gonna miss ya, Bill, but... I'm also not gonna miss ya.

    And you'd better not hurt Makaleka.

    I figured Charlie had gotten at least one hook into Bill. I didn't think it was going to go all the way, nor did I think it would manifest so quickly. What, no several dozen pages of cloak-and-dagger? Well, now I don't know what to think. :roll:

    Actually, I do know what to think. Tondy was within a hex or two of panic at the sisters having to take orders from Ivan or Claud -- either of whom, though unscrupulous, is rather polite and businesslike. What the deuce would the sisters think of taking orders from Bill?

    ...and I hope there's way to save Caesar, but that's an obvious one for me.

    Wow. I wonder if Bill was at all telling the truth about contract penalties and nonaggression for x-number of turns between TV and CC. It should be in there based on what we saw Don negotiating with Charlie. Although by directly going for a -literal- decapitation strike at Caesar, I wonder if it matters.

    EDIT 1/2 [new thought] - Actually, if the contract penalties go both ways (i.e. if TV attacks CC units) Charlie won't lose either way. If he kills Caesar to Decap the side, Bill and Dolls can claim the side and the treasury. If Caesar understandably retaliates while being choked out - every one of those 200 bats about to swarm Bill and Dolls will draw a Contract penalty.

    EDIT 3/4 [OMG Corollary] - Jack and Maggie can't do anything to Bill n Dolls, or there is a 1/2 treasury (min 500k) schmucker penalty to GK for each act of aggression...whose whole treasury is currently stacked neatly in the TV/GK "Joint" War Room. So only a couple possible hits before GK gets put in the "give up more cities and units" penalty box.

    I think our plucky heroes will get out of this somehow. Probably via Fashion Maggie. But would Caesar think quickly enough to appoint an heir while he's being strangled? You know...just in case...

    EDIT 4 - Fashion Maggie Turning to CC b/c she's a Doll may be the only way to save the situation. As a CC Unit, she'd be the only one who could attack Bill without penalties. But she'd be subject to Disbandment by either Charlie or Bill. What a mess...

    Well - Charlie's PLAN could be to disband Bill after he gets what he wants out of him. Otherwise, I think Charlie is at a point where he's had too many losses to think about what his associates (like Eleanor) think or feel. Full-on "damage control until restoration of status quo" mode.

    This also answers the question as to what happens to dolls when a dollamancer switches sides. Is it just that rare that casters switch sides that no one ever knew?

    I think we'll also find out if disbanding requires a verbal as well as a somatic component.

    I don't want to be "that guy" but knowing Rob this may eventually feature somehow: Tlatoani is not actually "king" nor "emperor" as the nahuatl-speaking people (not only the Aztecs, others as well) were not organized into kingdoms or empires. The official translation is "speaker": Tla=something; htoa=to speak; so, "to say something" as in an orator but meaning one who speaks with authority, a ruler.

    Come to think of it, that is EXACTLY what Ceasar was.

    Edit: fixed typo
