1.) Hippiemancers and predictamancers-- to end war on Erfworld
2.) Thinkamancers -- to bring down Charlie
3.) Collect the Arkentools together
4.) A new mandate of a balance between Arkentools and Royalty, rather than one assuming they have mandate to rule over the other.
or 5.) Maggie for some hot Hamster-style loving.
Also, since Bunny only communicates via thinkagram, she's an open conduit for Charlescomm. Anything she knows, does, or witnesses is pretty much Charlie's. That may mean he can set up a way for Ceasar to establish his own side before the TV heir pops, giving him a new customer in the long run.
We also get a good view of Maggie's necklace, so that may have some significance in the future.
An oddity, though, was that we were outright told that it was the original Slately that croaked. That seems too rushed and too cut and dried for the story so far, which means there will be something juicy that comes of that later. Just how long can Lloyd maintain the duplicate? If there is no time limit, LLoyd may be setting up a puppet king. And if LLoyd is maintaining the duplicate, can he cast any further spells without risking interrupting the duplicate king spell? And does Jetstone still have their leadership bonus? The troops may not have noticed the king's bonus drop if they thought that drop was from Ossamer croaking.
As for onsite CWL, Wanda would have been an excellent choice at the time he made that option available. That would have been CWL bonus plus artifact bonus plus whatever other bonus they get for the crokamancer/decrypted status. Even light infantry would be monstrous with her there. Doombats acted like Heavy Infantry in Ceasar's stack, and he didn't have the artifact multiplier, uncroaked/decrypted/croakamcer bonus, and doombats can't dancefight that I know of. That may put a light infantry or scout on comparable terms as a siege engine. She may as well just make her own side at that point and form an Alliance with GK.
Also at the time, Ossomer would have been a prime candidate. That would have sucked though if he turned as CWL. First Ansom, then Ossomer.
But, now that Wanda is in the MK and Ossomer is croaked (again), Sylvia is an obvious options. She would most vigourously carry out Parson's commands. But that brings up questions about how well a decrypted could serve as CWL, or if there is some mechanic preventing that (such as Loyalty to Wanda clashing with Duty towards Side). Archer is another option, being that ranged combatant leaders tend to be more tactically driven and lead from the back, where their range can be used more effectively and they can call shot. Hand-to-hand leaders tend to lead from the front, and lead by example.
Or promote the last Archon, just to muck with how they do not know how to handle a CWL. Plus it would chafe Charlie really hard.
Or have Isaac go through the portal, hire him on the spot, promote him to CWL and have him mindlink to Parson to provide constant strategic updates, and would bind him to Parson/GK's side so that they could discuss the Charlie situation off turn.
Or to get really out there, send Jojo through the portal, hire and promote him, let Sylvia pick up the pieces of the battle with a rigged CWL bonus. Then Jojo is bound to GK for the duration of his contract and can be ordered to disclose the nature of that scroll. Too bad about that promise to not serve a non-royal side.
