Kyo'nne doesn't look very happy. I wonder what she will be forced to do this time ...

Who is that Val'Sullisin'rune in the upper right corner? An empath? Ash'waren?

Also, Sarnel's weapon looks dangerously similar to Quain's :[

Finally: BAD. ASS. ARIEL. XD

Damn badass cover. One of the best so far, and that's sayin' something.

I read that as "the last chapter" for some reason and freaked out. It is not the last chapter of Drowtales, right? There are still some questions left to be all solved in one chapter even if it is bigger than any chapter we had before.

The soul of Quaintana is entered in Ariel's body.

Ooooh, Sarnel is wounded and bleeding!
...
Again...

The guy should really start to wear a helmet ^^

(And Vaelia is in armor. I guess retirement don't stick when your hometown is besieged by a barbarian horde)

But yeah, badass cover!

Blue hairs, extra-long and pointy ears (so an old timer), looking in another direction as if whatever is happening around didn't concern her... I'd say Ash'waren.

Is the weapon down on the right a Trebouchet?
So, how Phirrus once said: Damn it! Those barbarians are fighting in an absolute not barbarian way!

I forget, did a timeskip happen here? How long of a one, if so?

Those are trebuchets (there are at least 4 of them). And the troops are advancing in threnches, which means siege engieneers and a good knowledge of siege warfare, which is to be expected if those guys are rolling over medieval-level halmes.
And the scout we saw on the last page of the previous chapter had a pretty nice armour and equipment.

But you're always the barbarian of someone, especially when you're the newcomer (just like the nomad nations were seen as subhuman savages by their "civilized" neighbours, until they rolled over pretty much anybody on their path and proved the efficiency of tactics)

Not sure what "standard-length" chapter is. Not sure DT has more than two chapters with the same pagecount, but even regular publications I've seen range from 15 to 50. As for the cover itself:

Fighty faces, there.

Ariel's "I'm gonna stab stab stab you dead"
Faen's "so shocked you're going to fry"...ok that might be bad.
Sarnel's "I'll move and circumvent"
Kau's "you can't hurt me"
Kelnoz's "really? Interesting" with a subtle kamehameha behind cover.
Vaelia's "I'm sad I have to do this again"
Ash'waren's "I'm going to look somewhere else again and turn my back on my allies again"...dammit Ash.

and Kyonne "creepy Snadhya'rune's doll" Val'Illhardo.

Maybe they're not all fighty after all.

Quite a few are just plain hurt, or worse.

iirc 6 month timeskip happened with 51, yeah. Though the snow being still outside suggests it is winter, as much as that may not hold true with the May snow here.

"The last thread" suggests that things are hanging by it - that is, cut it down and it's done. Some of us for a bit hoped Snadhya'rune to die in C50, but she's not long for terra firma.

Though I recall there should be at least C53 after this, so no.

Okay, that's worse than my worst-case scenario of someone (Kavahini? Dragons?) doing a colony drop with so far little-featured sky islands.

But it reminds me of Nishikanta's golem core and mana platform as well. Maybe an explosive bomb thrown with the trebuchet.

Ariel's hair seems to have unlocked the lunareth's drawning style size :)

And Kau have nipples on his golem armor :V

So, given that The Last Thread doesn't in any way refer to the end of the series what would its real meaning instead?
The last link of communication of the fortress under siege, the last ray of Hope or the last one of the cowbew :@ ?
