* A few pages later, Bonnie (one of the newly Decrypted Archons) is trying to get Stanley to tell her why Parson is worth two million Schmuckers. He casually points out that due to the treaty violation caused by Parson turning back, he will actually cost ''seven'' million in the end. And Stanley is still sure that this is chump change compared to what he's actually worth.

* Things are looking good for Transylvito and bad for Gobwin Knob in the wake of [[spoiler:the disaster in the Magic Kingdom]]. They have [[spoiler:Parson, Jack and Maggie all held prisoner]] and Don King is looking forward to bending Stanley over a railing for [[spoiler:their ransom fees]]. Caesar is standing by when Don smugly calls Stanley to negotiate, silently admiring how good Don is at manipulating other rulers, despite considering Stanley an easy mark, getting him wound up until he's expected to cut off the call in a rage after [[spoiler:hearing Don's apparently ''ludicrous'' ransom price of 2 million schmuckers]] so he can work him for even more when he calls back next turn. But instead of cutting off the call... [[spoiler:Stanley just says "OK, we'll take it"]] because Transylvito has absolutely ''no'' idea how incredibly ''rich'' Gobwin Knob actually was after [[spoiler:receiving practically all of Charlescom's treasury]]. And then just to put the cherry on it, Stanley starts ''patronising Don about how he needs to learn how to run a side better'' until Don is forced to hang up on him instead!
-->Bunny lowered her arms. Don King, who had given her the break order with a silent nod, sat in his chair with his eyes bulging out. [[DidntSeeThatComing No trace of his smile remained.]]

** It's actually much more than that. [[spoiler:In firing their tripods through the portal, Charlescomm's Archons killed a number of neutral Magic Kingdom casters. This violates the Magic Kingdom's neutrality agreement, and ensures that Charlescomm will be the first side to go to war with them, an outcome that Charlie himself earlier stated would be a large strategic mistake. With a single spell, Jack might have just caused more trouble for Charlescomm than any unit since... well, since Lillith.]]

* [[http://archives.erfworld.com/Book%203/121 Jack]] uses a baffle spell to trick Charlie's archons into seeing [[spoiler:Parson as a Gobwin Knob unit despite his turning to Charlescomm]]. The archons proceed to fire at Parson [[NoKillLikeOverkill with far more bullets than they actually need]]. Dozens of decrypted Gobwin Knob units are caught in the crossfire, which means that Charlie will have to compensate Gobwin Knob.

Added DiffLines:

* Here's a meta-moment for you- how many stories can you think of where the ''antagonists'' get that many moments of awesome? Not stories with {{Designated Hero}}es where the so-called villains are UnintentionallySympathetic, not moments of VillainousValour, not moments of {{Magnificent Bastard}}y, moments where you can cheer for the genuine awesome heroism of the antagonists even as they're trying to kill the protagonists? Despite the GrayAndGrayMorality of the series, Parson is absolutely ''not'' a VillainProtagonist, yet you can still cheer for Slately as well as him while the two are locked in battle to the death. That's a level of character writing few web comics can reach.
