And even if it was, all that has to happen is whatever units are in queue when a city is captured are canceled, which is how I've seen things work in... oh, every game ever to exist of this type. You cap the city, you may have access to the same unit list, but you still have to restart production on anything that was 'in progress'.
As for a Stabber/Piker not becoming a Knight... why not? We've not seen any evidence that Knight is a unit type any more than Adept is. In fact, we've seen some evidence of the contrary. First off, no unit is ever simply refereed to as 'Knight' like they are 'Stabber' Instead they're refereed to as 'Knight-class X'. Knight class Skank, Hobgobwin Knights, Archons are Knight class units. Every reference to Knight has been as a sort of modifier to some base unit. I think it may be an attribute just like Heavy is actually. Which means a Goyle and Skank aren't different units, just like a Hobgobwin and a Hobgobwin that has been promoted to Heavy aren't different units.
And if that panel is the one in question (and I think it is) you're right that it doesn't show anything that could't be him having already tamed a few dwagons.
Um, yes it was, this was mentioned repeatedly, at the time that Traguywho'snameishardtospellcorrectly was designated heir
for one example. But that's not the point. The point is, the City is capable
of popping a Prince. That has to change. It's capable of popping Courtiers. That has to change too.
As you can see
Stabbers, Pikers and Knights are all arranged into different classes. There are different classes
of Knights. And on many
, many occasions
have Knights been referred to simply as 'Knights'. Not much else for me to say that those links don't. Although I'm not really sure why you think a Hobgobwin Heavy Knight is the same type of unit a yer bog standard Hobgobboe. I again raise the example of a soldier being promoted to Warlord, Sylvia was no longer a Stabber once she was promoted, she became a Commander.

? I could take that to be Stanley learning to use it but... there are only three Dwagons present including the one he's apparantly taming. No reason to think he had anymore at that point.
Yes. He looks really surprised as he's looking at the hammer. Given that, and that there's already someone riding one of the dwagons, I'm going to guess that the side already had dwagons.
Personally, I'd think the wonder at being able to tame Dragons would last past my third tamee if I'd been in his position. As for the rider, what of it? Gillian rode hers the very first turn she tamed it. And at that, Dwagons can
be tamed without Arkenassistance and Gobwin Knob is right next door to a Dwagon infested mountain range.
