Background

An initial manoeuvre by Wanda and Prince Ansom to capture Prince Ossomer was successful but led to a skirmish in which the Foolamancer, Jack Snipe, and Prince Ansom were injured. Interrogating the turned Ossomer revealed information about hidden reinforcement columns prompting Wanda to lead an assault against Spacerock's garrison from the air with the intention of croaking King Slately; this would disband or convert Jetstone (since Ossomer was heir).

After the forst turn ending, the Battle of Expository Bridge continued with Haggar and Faq's forces softening the Gobwin Knob units up, capturing Ansom in the process, for Jetstone's ground forces to attack and wipe them out before returning to Spacerock where the ground infantry took up residence in the Atrium. Haggar's forces are then believed to have retreated towards their own capital, likely using all their remaining move in the turn, while Jillian withdrew with the goal of destroying several of Gobwin Knob's cities on her way back to Faq.

Gobwin Knob's turn

Before the force turn Faq leader Jillian Zamussels moved to intercept and parley with Wanda in Spacerock's airspace. Jillian "agreed" to leave without a fight but instead of telling Vanna to go into the Magic Kingdom as she had claimed, ordered her to cast a spell arranged by Charlie. This Caster link enhanced spell forced Gobwin Knob to immediately end turn leaving Wanda stranded in Spacerock's air space and the infantry column without any air or caster support.

Coalition's turn

The Setup

Jillian's capture of Ansom caused Gobwin Knob to loose their Chief Warlord. Parson Gotti presented Stanley with several possible candidates for Chief Warlord among Gobwin Knob's forces in Spacerock's Airspace, however a suggestion spell cast by Maggie caused Stanley to promote Parson Gotti into the role and leave him to manage the battle. Parson quickly came up with a plan, contacting Jack Snipe to discuss Jetstone's likely response and ordered him to cast a Baffle over Wanda's stack before laying out his plan to both he and Wanda. Parson then ordered Sizemore's return from the Magic Kingdom, promoted himself to a field unit and proceeded to the armoury where he equiped himself with several Magic Items, intending to join the battle at Spacerock by passing through the Magic Kingdom with Sizemore's protection then continued to Gobwin Knob's portal room. Meanwhile, Tramennis returned from the Battle of the Expository Bridge and convinced King Slately to let him contact Charlie who gave Tramennis information on Parson Gotti. Tramennis then proceeded to discuss possible diplomacy with Gobwin Knob, including an alliance with a non-aggression treaty that would see them croak Wanda and take the Arkenpliers as opposed to simply croaking Gobwin Knob's entire attack force. They then made demands to Gobwin Knob for parley requiring them to dispell all foolamancy and bring the forces away from the tower but over the Garrison. Parson ordered compliance with screening stacks to be placed between Wanda and the tower before having Ossomer meet for parley and stall for time.

The Landing

As Parley began, Yellow Dwagons opened fire with Acidic Battlecrap attacks on the Atrium which destroyed the roof and croaked Jetstone infantry in the Garrison's courtyard. Tramennis responded by ordering the casters to fire the tower's Shockamancy spells on the Yellow Dwagons and order the retreat of Jetstone units from the Atrium where they were being croaked or, in the case of Duke Adam Antium, wounded. As Maggie reported the casualties of the Yellow Dwagons, Parson ordered the promotion of all Hobgobwins in the airspace to Heavy Units, causing their mounts to fall steadily into the open Atrium and land, together with giving the "Go" order to Wanda stating "Lets do Lunch". At this, Wanda commanded the uncroaked riders in the airspace to Harvest their Dwagons (a process which croaks the target unit in a single hit) causing the croaked Dwagons and their riders to fall into the Atrium, killing some, wounding or incapacitating others and croaking the remainder. Wanda was incapacitated in the fall but a healthy Jack Snipe steered Antium away from her with a displacement spell on her croaked mount and Wanda herself, together with A Veil which disguised him as a Jetstone Warlord. This done Jack Snipe proceeded to cast a Healomancy scroll on Wanda. Jack recommended to a now-functional Wanda that they find leadership and re-stack. Wanda decrypted her fallen dwagon, and was almost attacked by Antium. However, he was inopportunely hit with a stray arrow and croaked. Wanda decrypted him for use as "leadership".
