Indeed, it was quite amusing having Aristotle on your team in TPA2 :)

I personally like both well enough, though the Shadowlings are presented in much greater depth in TRPG2. There are a couple of quite enderaing Shadolwing characters, so it's not that hard to connect with them, even if there are a few issues with the way the Shadowlands Empire was run.

Well... I hope we will learn more about spriggat culture in SoG.

Shadowlings.  They have way more personality and they kick way more butt than the spriggats.

Shadowlings are interesting and useful, but sprights are more widespread in their elemental affinities. They don't have the style of shadowlings, but they are about just as good. I like them both but I'm leaning towards shadowlings.

I think the breath attacks are cooler, then anything shadowlings can do. (I don't count shockwave or fire gate.)

Shadowlings. They would have won the wars without the Main, and the best Shadowlings (Tastidian/Nelis) are stronger and cooler than the strongest spriggat (Cerzak)

Shadowlings are awesome, if only for the fact that their plumes constitute every part of their body that is not their head.

Shadowlings:

They're faster.

Their primary attack is mental, to which there is no resistance (or at least it's very rare).  Spriggats can't perform mental attacks.

Because their only affinity and resistance is Shadow, they can't quite turn on each other, like the different spriggats could.

Spriggat attacks are all elemental, to which anyone can gain resistance from an elemental shield.

Spriggats, with roasted potatoes (mmm... delicious).
Err... wait... isn't this what you're talking about?
Sorry... :P

I prefer Spriggats. They have (at least apparently) more variety.

And mezzoforte, Red Spriggats have mind blast and Frost Spriggats too.
