    Amazing and unexpected. A DoS-attack to get around not harming. Also having an archon sacrifice themselves to trip the trap! Makes a nice cat and mouse sort of thing. But why did the DoS-attack stop?

    Nooooo don't take the croaked archon. It's a trap! Double agent! Bugged! It is worth the a small bit of his treasury to get a spy in on the other side. Red flags everywhere!

    I will say, it seems sketchy that another archon tripped the bomb and Charlie stopped his DDOS right as she found it. She's going where he wants her to, now.

    But the page was a thrilling read. I don't know what those guys going on about "obviously we know Charlie won't die so what's the point" were talking about. Just because we're pretty sure we know what won't happen doesn't mean we know what WILL happen. I didn't expect any of this, certainly!

    Sound familiar?


    This update was awesome. Lilith really made Charlie freak out.

    I suspect Charlie is not hooked up to the dish, yet, so this is a DDoS - each archon was independently spending juice to spam her.

    Then they ran out of juice, or decided to conserve it, or lost line of sight (do they even need it?)

    Not even Charlie can plan for every contingency. I very much doubt he could force a decrypted Archon to remain loyal.

    Maybe Charlie will try to lure Parson through the portal by stopping Lilith just shy of her goal.

    Huh. Could he bug them? He only just learned how she ticked minutes ago. I guess he's online, though. If anyone could plant something that won't just switch to Wanda's alignment it's... it's morality, not Charlie. We've already seen this. Archons are raised to be fanatic, and that can be realigned to a new object. You need be driven something other than loyalty to not become loyal to Wanda.

    Lilith knows how to stop Archons with just communication, but Charlie can brute force it. And Charlie at least kept her from bringing Wanda a Fox Force Fiver. I wonder if the one who tripped the bomb is named Eve.

    This new application of Thinkamancy is pretty scary. What if Charlie were to use the Dish to spam an enemy Chief Warlord in a critical fight, or worse, an Overlord who likes to fight their own battles (like Stanley)? That'd pretty much be GG.

    Wow, that was dirty. Wonder if this was inspired by Rob's recent battle with malignant advertisements.

    I wonder what would have happened if she had accepted a request for parley? Could she have stopped the attack but kept the person (Charley?) on the other line in the background? Seems like it would give that person intel around her but it would at least stop the attacks maybe?

    Should the DoS dialog box have "Accept" and "Decline" in it? I'm not sure if I'd like that better or worse than just "Ok"..

    Another reason for Lilith to make it back, this is almost as impotent intel as the guns.

    I interpreted it this way.

    Lilith starts to reveal truth of Charlie to archons. This is utterly unacceptable.
    Charlie starts spam attack.
    Archons take most of her captured goods from her. Most importantly, they get the archon corpses.
    She stumbles around. Charlie orders one of his own to set off the bomb (lower cost to him than the chance that Lilith will go for it and actually succeed), and others to leave immediate vicinity.
    Charlie drops spam attack when the bomb goes off (I'm guessing doing that is effort or juice intensive).

    If we assume that Charlie hasn't bugged that croaked archon (a small recording/transmitting device of some kind?), then he's planning further resistance at the portal. He's probably planning further resistance at the portal anyways. He might also be interested in how intact a corpse needs be to be decrypted (or have retained part of it to examine in process when decryption is attempted).

    Oh my, what an update. Too bad Fox Forcers were denied to Parson, but I guess that would be just too much intel to be had at this point.

    I wonder what will happen though. This is becoming very interesting... Perhaps Lilith will take a jump at the portal... Imagine she went through...
