back in the desert again for Team Shadow, where once again their wind control and illusions will prove quite valuable. I wonder how close Purple Man needs to be to mind control someone or if he's just going to end up gun fodder.
I think Team Gobby can pull out a win here, mostly on the strength of Norman's powers.
His backup isn't too shabby either, but I think that Purple Man is going to get capped by the Shadow in short order, making him two points of dead weight. Wind Dancer is nasty in this terrain, but she's a 1 point-er, so once the goblin's allies figure out what a threat she is, it'll be a cat and mouse game between the teams to keep her protected.
That's a game that puts gobby's force on the offensive, and with that sort of strategic advantage they can win the whole thing.
