Hmmm, interesting. Jillian really is important to Don's plans. Really, really important. Nice to see he continues to be a smart character. His information network probably doesn't rival Charlie's, but the Don must be up there in terms of knowing what is going on.
Also - Itchy Bat (AKA Bat3). For some reason I'm charmed and interested, I hope the lil' fella will be ok.

I wonder what the game-logic of something like that is? are all royals members of the same root 'tribe', and thus incapable of flying, unlike some sort of subordinate translyvitan tribe that pops 'noble' or 'common' warlords?
I wondered if perhaps, for TV warlord class units if maybe they are somewhat like Archons, they can get special abilites as they level, like flight and so forth. There was that other warlord with the pet fish who also appeared unable to fly.
Or perhaps you are onto something, if TV ruling line (King, royal heir, king, royal heir) might be from non-flying stock, setting them apart from their warlords (like if the line took over TV in the distant past).

If so maybe that was how Charlie was able to be so ready for dealing with Jillian, since I guess Don has probably been monitoring Faq pretty closely.
Maybe Don and Charlie are aware of each other helping Jillian, I'm sure neither one is ignorant of the effort the other is putting into Faq. I hope so, since I don't like the idea Don would have been taken in by the anti-Charlie propaganda and decide to cut out such a useful resource in fighting against GK. Outward he's with the RCII on the matter, privately he'll let Charlie build up Jillian.

I've always been interested in whether, say, an Erfworld unit's physical activity can affect their appearance. If Don King suddenly became much more physically active would he "loose weight"? Would his stats be affected? Etc Or if Stanley did less, ate more would he "gain weight", would certain stats decrease?

Well first - it is a bonus, since the normal page is a little late, I'm not sure how much you want in that.
And second - Filler? Very useful filler then, at the very least. We got info on the Don's history, some of his operating procedures and, from the horses mouth as it were, that Jillian is really important to him, both as a military asset and I think as a person (sweet, cranky warrior queen is such a perfect description - go Jillian!).
This is useful stuff to know, both for the storytelling as a whole and for further fleshing out a major figure in the resistance (against GK, Decryption and what have you.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
