Really looking at the art I love the interior detail. And I have always liked Eastern stylings, shame GK doesn't have any units reminiscent of some of the more styalised Chinese/Japanese martial arts flicks (since I guess that would fit in more with the pop culture stylings then historical ones), but oh well. GK looks awesome, pure and simple.
It's been a bit of a jolt for me, moving back to the comic. You get more visual information, but the story progresses much more slowly.
Many of the updates we've seen would be 5-10 pages worth of comics in their own right, if each event needed to be its own frame.
It's not really a cliff-hanger; it's just the first breakpoint in a 25-page story that cannot come anywhere near fast enough for my tastes.
Yes, you've got it exactly.

He's trying to convert him to toolism, like they did with queen Bea.
If so I suspect failure, though different to Bea. I guess that is why Parson would be asking about the battle. Ossomer will slap Ansom's face with his glove, and it. Will. Be. On.
Or he'll say mean things about Wanda and it will be Ansom that does the face slapping.

Natural signamancy? I mean if you wear a cloak it should billow dramatically no matter where you are.

Hmmm, good point. I wonder what "Owiental Dwagons" would be like, since in real world terms at any rate they are rather different in nature and being then the more Western style that Stanley's dwagons are modeled after.
Still. Needs a bit more shadows, those Stabbers for example have none at all and look a bit pasted in as a result.
It's the decryption I tell you! Decryption!
So ... when they said "Love is a battlefield", they meant lovers killing lovers
Well Jillian is in a love square at the moment, she has plenty of options.

We haven't seen it, I know, but maybe there is some sort of infiltration unit out there. Ninjas! James Bonds! Solid Snakes! Etc!
If so you'd want some guards around should they strike. Or maybe it is like Parson having to physically walk around and look at things - if he doesn't it doesn't work as well. If you let your units slack off maybe their stats decline over time. So even if no one is going to be trying to kill you in your inner sanctum you still set your troops guard duties etc.
Plus there is always the problem of a unit turning. And like raphfrk said they do other things, like keep unauthorized units out of certain areas.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
