THINK. Couldn't Banana WALK Parson around? (Banana could run and leap off of that wall with him riding it after all). Sizemore expecting Parson couldn't even mount the dwagon would similarly expect he couldn't even get the Dwagon to walk him around (but Parson could).
Yes I know Banana glided instead of falling but big deal we still learned something.

For that matter, we've clearly seen that Jillian's flight capability is based on her gwiffon's move, not her own. The idea of a dwagon carrying Parson across a hex border isn't all that unreasonable. If Parson counts as a heavy and thus cannot usefully ride a mount, then that issue comes into play, but by itself the idea that riding a mount can "circumvent" a unit's unmounted move is perfectly normal.
Wyvern wrote:That's exactly my point, though. Properly mounted units DO use their mount's movement instead of their own. But one Pikeman can't carry another Pikeman across the hex border piggy-back and keep him from losing move. That would just be silly. I think this is the relationship between Parson and Banana. He's on his back, but he's not officially mounted, and doesn't follow the rules for being mounted.

(it's 3 move for the piggybacked units to cross a hex on the burdened unit, 0 for the cargo unit) overall this those two troops assuming they swap at the end of the first's move will only achieve 66% of their original distance.
if it's carrying wounded, they'll only cover a third of the distance they normally do.
