Background

Charlie gave Jillian a large supply of schmuckers to hire Vanna to Transylvito, and as a loophole around the Declaration of Non-Aggression Between Charlescomm and Gobwin Knob to cause them more problems without Jillian counting as his agent. He also made a dead drop supply of 8 guns and had Archons point Jillian to it. Motivated by a desire to see Stanley croaked and to become more independent of her backers, Jillian used these new resources to enlarge her forces and attempt to conquer the strategic City of Gobwin Knob.

The Invasion

The Western Giants and stabbers laid siege to the walls while Faq's air force flew to the tower.

Thanks to the Declaration of Non-Aggression, every Gobwin Knob unit she encountered ran or even permitted her to croak them rather than invoke the clause forbidding them from causing her harm. Between that and the guns, the city was easily taken and Jillian renamed the city to "I'm Coming For You Stanley".

One by one, Duncan gave all the prisoners a choice between turning to Faq or being executed in the hopes one of them would spill the exact details of the non-aggression treaty. But they all refused to a man.

Jillian had originally wanted to keep the city, but didn't think she could hold it, thinking she would have to raze it. But having discovered the non-aggression treaty, she realized she could just have a pair of Charlescomm archons guard it and decided to keep it.
