For a while I've been thinking it would be neat to see the perspective of a decrypted natural ally. Particularly an elf or marbit (although gobwin could be interesting too). As we know, marbits and elves don't ally with sides that are allied with hobgobwins, so I think it would be neat to see what they think of being on the same side. Another aspect to explore could be a natural ally chief that has been striped of their title and connection to their side. I don't imagine that happens too often.
The down side to this is that there don't seem to be decrypted natural allies in the main conflict. So the only place we might see one in the near future is in a city Jillian is attacking, or in the city of Gobwin knob. Still, I can hope.
I think something like this could easily be done, after all we saw the Eager Elves form the first wave once the walls fell in the Battle for Gobwin Knob. There would definitely be a number of Decrypted Eager's among the ranks, and I think Parson would not overlook making some rounds with one of them to ask about Neutral Tribe factioning, about why some tribes hate other tribe and won't work with them. I also think Parson would be wize to start looking for Witches and the like to form Natural Allies with, as I am quite eager to see Erfworld renditions of witches.
Would they be wiccan? Wicked Witches of the East? Glendas of the North? Samatha's of Bewitching? Crones of MacBething? I WANNA SEE!

It's been a while- or it feels like it- since we got into Parson's head. Maybe it's just an impression, but we're due for a look in Lord Hamster's brain. After all, there he is, doing something risky and suboptimal, from a powergamer perspective. We know more or less why- not put others in risks he wouldn't face. Who's these others? Would be a time to explore his friendship with Jack, for example, who probably is the one unit at Spacerock that Parson would be most sad to see go. Or Wanda, whose untimely departure would be a frightening event.
Also, I'd like a comic page update about Stanley, swinging both Hammers into battle.
I like the idea of text describing Parson's thought process while he's going through the portal. It's almost like Stargate, you sink in and go elsewhere. Now, what would be going through a Stupid Worlder's mind while he is still in transit. What thoughts about physics meeting game systems and movement tables would be going through his mind? Is the transit instant or does it take a few moments? Can he breath while he's going through? What does it look like as you're leaving the portal, can you see the light at the end of the tunnel and did Parson think he had finally died the first time he saw it?
I am most curious!
