Haffaton was a [[side]] founded by [[Lex Doothis]], an adventurous [[warlord]] that found a level 2 barbarian capital site and chose to split off from his original side. At the peak of its power, Haffaton was the largest side in Erfworld, possessing over 70 cities, 15 [[capital]] sites, and almost completely surrounding the secret kingdom of [[Faq]].
+
-
 
+
-
Under Lex's leadership, Haffaton slowly grew. Its conquest was briefly brought to a halt by a conflict with a pair of allied sides known as [[Easteros]] and [[Westeregg]]. [[Charlie]], the ruler of a side called [[El-Efbaum]], who had fought a long two front war with them offered [[alliance]] with Haffaton. By pooling Haffaton's [[Thinkamancer]] and [[Predictamancer]] with El-Efbaum's [[Lookamancer]] and [[Findamancer]], their casters managed to produce a [[Summon Perfect Warlord Spell]].
+
-
 
+
-
The spell killed the ruler of Easteros outright. [[Judy Gale]], the warlord the spell had summoned managed to croak the ruler of Westeregg by using the [[Arkenshoes]] she had claimed from Easteros and gave the [[Arkendish]] Westeregg had once owned to Charlie as per their agreement.
+
-
 
+
-
Eventually, [[Olive Branch]], one of Charlie's children, betrayed him. His side fell to Haffaton, though Judy Gale chose to let him go. Olive Branch betrayed and croaked Lex, and the side would come to fall under [[Judy Gale]]'s puppet rule, with Olive Branch technically in charge.

Haffaton continued to grow and became involved in conflict with [[Goodminton]] around the time when [[Wanda]] popped. Haffaton was [[alliance|unallied]] at the time,<sup>[[IPTSF Text 6]]</sup> but later gets [[Frenemy]] and [[Quisling]] as allies.<sup>[[IPTSF Text 26]]</sup> After the destruction of [[Goodminton]], Haffaton obtained the services of [[Wanda]].
+

+
-
Spurred on by a [[prophecy]], Faq began searching for a new capital to escape their conquest at Haffaton's hands. Thanks to [[Jillian]]'s recklessness, Haffaton learned of Faq's existence and fulfilled the prophecy, seizing control of Faq's cities. However, all the people on the side managed to escape, take one of Haffaton's spare [[capital]] cities, and [[capture]] its newly appointed [[Overlady]], Olive Branch.

According to [[Overlord Firebaugh]], [[Goodminton]] has faced [[Foolamancy]], [[Thinkamancy]], [[Hat Magic]], [[Weirdomancy]] and [[Carnymancy]] in its fight against Haffaton (in addition to [[Olive Branch]]'s [[Flower Power]]).  As most casters are unable to cast outside of their discipline, this likely indicates that Haffaton had a sizeable number of casters. However, by the time Jillian enters the scene, they only seem to have two left, Wanda Firebaugh and Olive Branch, with the rest of them implied to have been croaked by Olive's Heroine buds.

The name Haffaton refers to the expression "half a ton" or "half ton" (roughly equal to 1000 pounds).
+
-
 
+
-
Another possible interpretation would be the expression "(to) have a ton", as in "I have a ton of units".
+
-
 
+
-
Haffaton may also refer to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halftone halftone] - "technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size, in shape or in spacing". This technique is used in printing photographic images - usually black-and-white - in newspapers (which may explain Haffaton's black and white livery).
+
-
 
+
-
Haffaton may also be a corruption of "half a town" implying that it is a mere shell.
