Maybe, maybe not. Myself and a few others expect the lightning strikes from the trap to come from the spire Digdoug constructed at the top of the tower. Of course, just because we expect it doesn't mean that is the case. It is entirely possible that the lightning will emanate from the tower itself, as happened with the bolt that struck Creen. The big question is whether or not the trap has been activated. It has been stated several times that it will only work after being activated. We know Digdoug did not activate it; he was too preoccupied with the scroll. I doubt Dove could activate, since she isn't a Homekey unit. It is possible Peck activated it before he was croaked, but that happened very quickly. It's also possible that Posbrake activated it. Still, given the big deal made over activating the trap, it seems odd that it wasn't explicitly stated when someone did so. So, at this point, I don't know if the trap is what struck Creen or if the bolt originated from another source. I'm leaning towards the other source theory, but I can see it going either way. I feel we currently lack enough information to definitively determine the source.
Agreed. IMHO, my explanation is a little more likely, just because it is simpler, but we really need more information.
Maybe Dove made herself the recipient of Digdoug's storm powered spell. So Digdoug didn't actually make a storm powered spell/weapon ...well he did, but not on the tower.
