Another issue I take with this update is the confusing dialogue. For example, when Parson asks what the boundary between the airspace and garrison is, Jack "supposed it was the ground". What the hell is this supposed to mean? Is the garrison underground? Can hexes be passed only on the ground, where you pass a barrier visible only to Erfworld-natives?

Yeah, and archers can shoot through boundaries on their turn, so I don't see why Jetstone would put it's archers in the same hex as Wanda to begin with.elmagnifico wrote:I can see going to ground causing more problems than it solves. Jetstone still has a mass of infantry, along with whatever's left of Haggar.
splintermute wrote:Also, does this mean that Bogroll's sacrifice might have been in vain, and that GK was just super lucky that the fall killed Ansom instead of just injuring or incapacitating him? I'd like to think that regardless of the outcome of Ansom's fall, Bogroll croaked him by doing some serious crushing damage.

It just so happens that Parson and Jack discussed what to do if trapped off-turn in the airspace ld of a level 4 city and had Sizemore make bombs for exactly this situation. Way too convenient.
OTOH - if they have them, why didn't Jack mention them in the war council update? " Well, it just so happens that Lord Hamster and I planned for exactly this contingency..."
gazes_also wrote:To be contrarian as usual, the information that the outcome of a fall is random is actually bad news for Wanda's group. Assuming that Wanda can decrypt across zones (it's an Archentool so that really isn't too improbable) the idea of just dropping units from the sky and decrypting them on the ground has taken a big hit. If only a third of those who land are croaked then then the gain is severely limited. Only one third would be decrypted, a third injured with some limited capability, and a third who would be incapacitated, can't fight and can't be dercypted until the next turn, and so are completely useless. Not much of a play.

I think that the Klogs being shown are all flashbacks. Maybe Parson's reading his Klog for ideas?
