Talk:Royalty and Nobility

Why is this page necessary when there are pages for Royals and Nobles already? Or, what extra benefit is it adding?

We don't have page's with those names, we have redirects for those that used to point to the Units page, but now point to this page.
Huh. I'll be dipped.

Not sure this is worth including in speculation, but is it possible that all Warlords who are popped as Warlords (as opposed to being promoted) by a Royal side are Noble? Jorgath 15:54, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

I did a major revamp of this page and several related pages; I made updates to status listings and generally cleaned up, but I also moved several things around (thing that didn't belong in Proposed Canon down to Speculation and vice versa, deleted former Speculation that was since debunked or rephrased it to account for later comics, and so on). If anyone has objections to my changes (or just comments about them), definitely feel free to discuss them here, on another affected article's talk page, or on my talk page. I tried to preserve as much as I could, while ensuring the article was up to date and correct. Sorator 22:31, 3 May 2013 (EDT)


Should the Goodminton units be removed from the "possible" section? I mean, they were popped under Overlord Firebaugh, not King Firebaugh. — No one in particular 14:46, 21 August 2013 (EDT)

They're in for the same reason Ace is in: The Lord/Lady title. We don't actually know what that counts as. But if you take Wanda out of that section, you must also take Ace out. I'd recommend leaving them in. - Whispri 11:49 PM, 21 August 2013(BST)
Not sure, how much of what I'm saying is based on information only revealed after August 2013, but all Commanders popped by Royal sides are Noble. Given that Ace Hardware was popped in the level 5 city of Dhrystone, under the reign of King Slately, I raise in great certainty that Lord Hardware is a noble. However, being referred to as "Lord" is no indication of nobility, and it's a title that can be granted by any ruler. Recall that the late Stanley the Plaid (long live Stanley the Tool) once had a warlord named "Lord Hamster". Note when Prince Ansom reacted in dismisal to Lord Hamster's use of Hamster's title, saying that he works for "Stanley the Worm", implicating that a title granted by Stanley has no meaning.
While we don't know Lord Hardware's former title, he must have been a high ranking noble given how he was popped in a Level 5 city, and noble ranks are dependant on the size of a city.--Anomynous 167 (talk) 06:56, 15 May 2017 (EDT)
Wouldn't it also depend on what you intended to pop? Casters pop 'randomly' in place of Warlords, but can't Royal sides choose if they're popping a Noble or not? I imagine there's a difference in upkeep to match the difference in stats. As for ranking, I suspect they'd be like Chief Caster/Warlord and ranking is determined by a combination of age, experience, suitability and likability. Ace would be pretty low down for most of these and is implied to be the lowest ranking of Jetstones casters. Knavigator (talk) 21:00, 15 May 2017 (EDT)
