If I remember correctly, Gandalph is Springdale's FM. He did log on during the invasion, and didn't even come out to change his legions to face in a proper direction.
In fact he logged on before we even had our hundreds of 10 men legions combined into one.
Which if you want to play warfare startegy games, that could have been disasterous for us.
