Well, the guesses I had for the scroll were all wrong. I thought it might be Weirdomancy, an attempt to remove the flight special from the enemy and have them fall. Another guess was Carnymancy, since it breaks the rules. My third guess was Shockamancy, since, as a branch of Naughtymancy, it might feel dirty, and it would be useful against air units. Dirtamancy never even entered my mind. My only question is: did they level the city to level 5 or simply upgrade the Minnow Tower to increase its bonuses?
Also, I think I saw a mistake:
Quisling escaped Goodminton's airspace with more than half their total units still alive; the battle was decisive mainly for the high-value targets they had lost.
Fritz stood atop the tall new tower, leaving his sword in its sheath. He signaled to Quisling by pointing to the horizon, with Delphie standing at his back, ready to cast. Before ten minutes had passed, they too had withdrawn from Goodminton's airspace.
I think that first Quisling should be Frenemy. Also, how could Quisling and Frenemy both move? At the start of the turn, Goodminton, Frenemy and Quisling were all allied, so they all shared turn. Goodminton broke alliance with Frenemy, but kept alliance with Quisling. We can assume that Quisling and Frenemy were still allied. So, Goodminton and Quisling share a turn; Frenemy and Quisling share a turn; Frenemy and Goodminton do not share a turn. Of course, this may be an exception since the alliance broke on turn, and the new turn order in the battlespace will assert itself next turn. Of course, I doubt Goodminton will remain allied with Quisling for long, so I doubt this complicated situation will remain.
A good plan. It only cost a fifth of the treasury instead of two thirds. Unfortunately, Goodminton is basically in the same position they were in when Wanda popped. They're down to two cities. I'm also pretty sure we haven't seen the end of Quisling and Frenemy. They're now fighting five sides. Even with razing Goodfinger, their treasury is still down. They've gained units, but many of those are uncroaked and will decay. Delphie has levelled to five and Wanda to four. They have a higher level Chief Warlord. They've lost two allies who were selling them out. While they're probably in a slightly worse situation, it isn't that much worse.
I also wonder what the other two sides in the battlespace have been doing.
