Is that a dwagon that just popped with the new turn? Interesting to see that GK's production of units is still going despite it being turned into rubble.
Just as I and several others have said, the city was not conquered, so it was still there, just reduced in level. With the new gem discovery it now has plenty of Schmuckers to pay for new units and upkeep, too!
I find Wanda's smile disturbing. Make it stop. Cool motif on the last panel, the turnips are now skulls. Hmmmm, no Hamstar markings...
Well this is her special troop from the atuned Arkentool, so tied to her rather than the warlord I suppose. Does this mean Wanda has become a Tool too? Poor croakamancer.
And yes, that was a dragon popping. Will be a number of turns at that rate before Stanley is back up to strength with them in best case alas.
Wanda's method is interesting. Unlike the Hammer, she doesn't autopop her special troop, she actually has to have someone croaked to decrypt. But strength likely depends on strength of the one that was croaked. Now a very clever Wanda might just have to croak a dragon and decrypt that=(Arkentool servitor)^2
...I also notice that Ansom's raddishes have changed into little white skulls on a black background...this would seem to signify something relating to wanda as previous uncroaked she made had the hamstard emblam!

Alright, so a Ansom the Decwypted Knight (with little skulls instead of radishes).
I think it's just Decrypt. It's not a unit and it was plainly shown as Decrypt, so no text change need apply. What I find interesting is how it appears to be a boosted version of "Uncroak" by using similar words to basically say the same thing. Reminds me of similar naming techniques used in other games. That and the Arkenpliers were used as a focus, so maybe it's something she only has access to through the Tool as an upgrade element rather than a new standard. Who knows, we might even see Bogroll again if Parson can convince her.
Barbarians aren't in the Battlespace. Wanda's thinking ahead for any potential unwanted surprises. The Don and Charles are playing it safe, probably want to see if there's any other traps that haven't been armed yet. Those Schmuckers will be helpful, and we already know the volcano can be uncroaked. They'll have time at least for Tool Stanley to reconnoiter for a bit, if not come straight back to base with the remnants of the dragons. Plus they'll have Jack Snape come back as a recovering Foolamancer who may have access to things which I don't feel I have the right to speculate on without bringing on mod wrath. I don't know if you guys work like Sluggy.net, but I know better than to get my Spec in your Word of God so I'll sit on it for now.
Interesting times are ahead for everyone, at least. Decrypted Ansom... I smell FoeYay with Wanda.
OK, now I'm really going away. Please don't hurt me.
Hello, I'm BRIAN BLESSED, and I'm here on behalf OF THE DEAF!
Wow. The spell even renewed and changed Ansom's clothing.
So what is this? A sentient uncroaked, like some have been saying?
Or is it Erfworld's very first, honest-to-goodness Resurrection spell? That would open up some interesting possibilities.

Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.
Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.
Wow... just WOW! A lot of things...
1. Love the camouflage of the Dwagons... Jack is really good!
2. Can't wait for the arrival of Stanley... gotta see his face, when he will watches the devastation
3. A blue dragon popped in the air space of GK? don't understand it... popping units shouldn't be planned by the "king" (who disposes of the treasury)?
4. Wanda' smile is very creepy. Love it!
5. White skulls on black field? Love them!
6. "something... glorious". Go wanda!
Definitely, a great strip. Rob and Jamie are preparing an epic setting!
EDIT: I forgot Ansom asking who he is... eheheh! Also Parson seems amused by this.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes. (W.Withman)
Things that increase my self esteem:

Are you sure? I see it more like he's reaching for his sword, that's just behing Wanda's shoulder.
More than the insane grin on Wanda's face I'm worried about Parson's sarcastic grin...am I the only one noticing that?
I don't think Ansom remebers nothing, I see that "What am I" instead of "Who am I" like "Hey, i was dead, and now I'm here, but in what form?"
Lets see here.
1. Ansom has been resurrected by the use of powerful McGuffin.
2. He looks pretty much like he did in life except ominous red glow (as she powered him up) and new "evil-ified" imagery.
3. He's not a vampire (since erfworld vampires are special).
4. Drama-logic tells me he's not going to decay.
I don't 100% know what Ansom is, but 20 schmuckers that Ansom is now a Deathknight.
Oh, and I like that Stanley is starting to make an effort to name his units by their names. "The thinkamancer. Maggie."
Yes, he learned his lesson from that business with Jack.

Well, I believe it takes several turns to pop a new unit (and I'd guess many for something as serious as a Dwagon), so I'd guess that Stanely started "construction" sometime before he left before (probably before the siege too) and it just finished now.
If a tree falls in the forest and the PCs aren't around to hear it... what do I roll to see how loud it is?
