Moneymancy rules – can't send shmuckers direct from side to side, but can use contracts for peace, sales, etc. Can add rules to contracts about future sales & penalties.
Contracts between sides can be drafted/signed by ruler, CW or Chief Caster. Side that drafted it pays a small amount in shmuckers to make the Natural Signamancy go. (Signamancers can use juice instead, and can make contract scrolls.)
Only Moneymancers can make gems – juice cost is negligible. Sides with m-mancers sometimes pimp them out to other sides & make gems for a cut off the top. So…
Plan Gambit is to convert entire GK treasury to 500K gems, then find a way to trade shots w/ Charlie now. Ivan Poe's brain is the key. Roger OTW Need a way to call him. Not only can he rig portals – he also knows C-Comm layout.
Get defense/trap info from Ivan (or Bonnie) to plan assault through portal by GK expendables – prob Rock Golems b/c tough enough to get thru park, w/ Juggle Elves to absorb Shockmancy.
Assumes portal can be rigged – if not, maybe he can rig TV portal & I can go to CCom w/ bats from here?
Also assumes portals aren't "sealed" yet, or we can bust through seals. Again, I need Ivan's brain, bc a "Sizemore's Tunnel Redux" is possible, only this time we go thru bedrock.
If we can't rig portals, the only thing would be to somehow place or create units in the MK, and send them thru to CC. Free our prisoners? Grim Answer: Wanda is there
Hamstard: We are all expendable
