Proposed Canon

Strengths: Bucking Tradition, Rewarding Success

Weaknesses: Watching His Back

First Appearance: TBFGK 78

King Saline IV was Ruler of Gobwin Knob prior to his demise.

He also promoted Stanley from a simple Piker to Warlord. Pleased with Stanley's performance with the Arkenhammer, the King promoted him to Chief Warlord and eventually made him Heir Designate, at great expense.Erf-b1-p079Same-site.PNG

At some subsequent moment Gobwins broke alliance with Gobwin Knob (which Sizemore considers very odd), captured the city and croaked King Saline IV.Erf-b1-p079Same-site.PNG Stanley who was a Heir Designate recaptured the city and became Ruler -- an Overlord because he was not Royal. Ansom believed that Stanley orchestrated this rebellion to come to power.Erf-b1-p034Same-site.PNG

Vurp the Hobgobwin apparently knows something about the overthrow of King Saline. He lied to Parson when asked about this. He is likely the last unit with firsthand experience of the event.


It's possible that either Stanley or Wanda ordered Vurp not to reveal what he knows about King Saline's overthrow.
