Agreed, but we already know that the decrypted are fanatics. Ossomer doesn't need to know
anything, he just needs to believe

If an honourable fight is to take your opponent on fair an equal terms, then nobody has ever fought a truly fair fight before - in the history of Erfworld or Earth - because the entire point of fighting is to win.
Very nice post, with very accurate arguments and conclusions. Fighting "by the rules", fighting "fair", that's all well and good for sporting events. For war, especially in a war of annihilation, which both the RCC and the RCCII announced their intentions to fight, rules have no place except as an attempt by the advantaged side to restrict the actions of the disadvantaged side. Parson didn't kill Ansom "dishonorably." Instead Parson, while facing certain defeat at the hands of a vastly superior coalition of forces intent upon the destruction of his Side, denied the RCC both the surrender Ansom had thought that he was due and which would have led to the slaughter of every GK unit save (and only perhaps) the casters, and the bonus of a powerful warlord. And I see absolutely nothing wrong with this action.

I'm not sure that it has been shown that a unit can see the "points" of an enemy unit. The only indication that I can recall is after the decrypting of Ansom, Wanda says something like "And look, he is still a level 10 Warlord." But since Jillian had been in Wanda's tender care and had spilled all, I believe that it remains unclear as to whether Jillian told Wanda during her interrogation that the RCC leader was a level 10 Warlord, or if this information was easily viewed by anyone looking at Ansom.

I am sorry to inform you, if history is any judge we have at least 20 updates before there is any clear resolution. And probably more like 30-50. On the plus side, that's a lot of content! On the minus side, damn that is a slow way of arriving at what must be an already determined conclusion. And you'll have both the plus and minus camps and those in between griping and winging the whole time, so strap on tight, this promises to be a wild ride!

It seems to be the equivalent of a "breath weapon" for the yellow dwagons. Rather than breathing fire, lightning, poison gas, etc., they have a similarly potent (and pungent!) poop attack.

I wonder how much ammo they have/contain.....
It's not so unusual, as long as you view it as the yellow dwagon version of a breath weapon. If you can command a red dwagon to breath fire, why not be able to command a yellow dwagon to poop acid? As to how much ammo they have, the sole indicator is the fight at the pass to FAQ between Stanley and his KISS and the forces of the RCC of Jillian and the TV units. In that fight Jillian encouraged a GK dwagon who was breathing fire to "get it out of his system", which hints at a use/turn capability of dwagon specials.
