These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Base Breaker: Ian Edington replaced Ron Marz, and he included a new character who had important role despite never being mentioned during the Marz's run. It did not help that the whole series was shut down before he could finish the story. Also, the change of the icetroll's design.
Iron Woobie: Arwyn. She lost her family, and now quite determined to bring down Mordath. On the surface, she is hard and unrelenting in her quest, but she has nightmares and she is quite afraid that once she lets her emotions overwhelm her, there will be no come back.
