This may have been brought up before, if so will go back and delete. Anyway, just realized a couple things,
1: Any non living matter can pass through a portal (no word on what this means for golems or other constructs).
2: Any corpse that's deliberately moved will not instantly decay next turn.
So it got me to thinking, couldn't Parson's side open up a purchase market for corpses from extremely poor sides? Transport them through the portal network, decrypt them on the new capital's side, instant defensive army?
What other implications of portals can you come up with?
