I do hope the text updates cover Banhammer's death. Wanda throwing down with Banhammer could be extremely awesome, particularly if they have a philosophical debate while she beats him to death with his own arm.
You do realize that this can't happen, right? Jillian was heir to FAQ when FAQ fell, not the ruler, and Banhammer is shown to be leading a circle with Wanda in it way back in book 1.
Banhammer survives this, though safe quatloons are on Olive doesn't...
I think they mean they hope the text updates eventually cover Stanley's attack on FAQ.
As for Banhammer potentially having been a powerful warlord who saw too much war and retired to a bubble kingdom.. I doubt it, extremely. I really think he was just some heir or royal unit that was granted or obtained the bubble kingdom without ever having to fight for it. His sheer incompetence and actual tactical suicide (disbanding one of your own units to preserve the life of a prisoner?!) would be entirely out of character for a warlord king with battle experience.
Where is the Garden, anyway? I thought it was within the city limits, which was now under FAQ control, so how or who did raze it? And if it was outside the City, how does the Garden burning affect units in another hex? Whose turn is it, anyway? (The gameworld where your Fate's made up for you and your stats don't matter!)
Oh, speaking of Fate, I'm thinking that Fate is an actual Presence within the game, with either motivations or methods/means to its ends. Recall, Sylvester Stallfate was clearly Fated to burn to death inside an enemy garrison... it just took a couple times to stick. I'm trying to think of other Fates that couldn't be avoided... Wanda was fated to work for Haffaton; she attempted to fight that but ended up under Olive's control anyway. Olive, or at least the Ruler of Haffaton, has been Fated to die by Jillian's hands, and Jill has definitely been trying really hard to make that Fate happen. Perhaps she's being subtly influenced by whatever force controls Fate? I'm thinking Fate is an actual character in this comic, like Death from the Final Destination series -- never seen, but always present. I think Charlie has also been Fated to die somehow, but has put the same Denial of Fate spell on himself as Sylpherioth, since certain scenarios seem to repeat whenever he's involved in something.
