I'm wondering how Parson knows Artemis' stats, since he isn't wearing his 3D glasses. Sure, he could have used them off-panel, but then they'd only be used in battle scenes when he needed to see the stats of enemy units. Or in other scenes, such as his visit with the Milquetoast Minds, where seeing their stats would be pretty handy. He really should have been wearing them there. I hope the 3D specs aren't shelved forever. Not only did I like them from a visual aspect, but they were specifically given to Parson to overcome a weakness or limitation of his, and never showing them again would mean that this weakness or limitation is just going to be ignored from here on out. It would be poor writing to establish a weakness, provide a fix, and then ignore the fix simply because you don't like how your hero looks while wearing his specially designed fix item.
You didn't miss it, it hasn't happened on-panel. I'm pretty sure this is the answer to that question at last. It'd be a complete waste of an update to have almost the entire update focus on using capabilities of the casters, and then next update have Parson go "Whoops. I guess I shoulda checked to see if you decrypted casters could still cast. Well, go join that rank of infantry over there, you're pretty much useless to me now." Although that last was tongue in cheek. I think that even if Jack couldn't cast Parson would keep him in the circle of advisers. Ace, too, for his knowledge of dollamancy and casting in general. Didn't Jetstone have advisers who were courtiers or some such? Not casters or commanders, but still close to the throne as far as access to the king goes?Malanthyus wrote:...did I miss somewhere where they actually checked if the decrypted casters can still cast?
I think you mean giant eagles.Whispri wrote:Silly Parson, one does not simply walk into Mordor, try catapults, much quicker!
"That spell" is fine, but it would be tidier if it read:warriortribble wrote:On a gramatical note, "That spell that ended our turn and wrecked the battle plan was from Charlescomm, we think." Should be "The spell," no?
"That spell which ended our turn and wrecked the battle plan was from Charlescomm, we think."
But authors are allowed to have spoken words be as non-grammatical as the people speaking might make them, due to education or culture or whatever.
No. But if they make it a flying unit it could be called Nighthawk or Raptor or Lightning. That, plus flying units typically have more move and they ignore terrain penalties to movement while they are in the air. A much better scout than a land unit. So again, giant (stealth) (Raptors/Nighthawks) eagles are better for getting into Mordor than anything walking.BakaGrappler wrote:I just gotta ask it...
Will the new Stealth Golem speak by saying, "Gollum! Gollum!"
It's a fair question, since Parson himself brought up the doubt long after the archons were decrypted. Archons are not casters. They are a flying, knight class unit with specials that include leadership and dance fighting, and one of several different types of casting as 'natural magic'. Having a special that gives you access to a few spells in a discipline does not a caster make.Khundes wrote:Malanthyus wrote:...did I miss somewhere where they actually checked if the decrypted casters can still cast?
The decrypted Archons could still cast. Why not casters?
I suppose he might be able to shut it down with his carnymancy, since an ability which 'breaks the rules' can conceivably do just about anything. But if he can't, I'm sure he'll park a strong force in his portal room permanently. It wouldn't really hurt his defenses, since if it looked like a conventional attack was going to succeed in breaching the walls they could be reassigned pretty quickly.niklinna wrote:I would be amazed to hear that Charlie even has a portal. He really doesn't seem the type, and if he does have one, after Parson's recent stunt, he's darn likely to shut it down fast.
