This is why it makes such a difference to pick the right players for your factions. My fear was that IVasscus and Stalin would follow the purple wizard's default suggestions and just bore us all for the first couple of turns, but it turns out there was nothing to worry about in that regard.
Oh a couple of notes I forgot in the summary above - I wasn't able to find a way to stash IVasscus's shield on his back, so he's stuck holding the explosive and shield for the time being, with the sword on his back instead. Spider Gymnastix requires that you end your turn in a stable position, which normally means anything you can stand on or hold onto is fair game, but with both hands full your options will be more limited. Finally, if you want to remain Stealthed then you'll have to either move at half speed or find some way to scramble around that doesn't take you out of cover. Right now you're hidden by the bulk of the catapult on the carriage roof.
I'm house-ruling that the far shore is safe from detection for now, since it's still dark and the wagon crash has created a huge distraction, so Stalin can still run around at full speed if he wants. This could change at any moment if the VladTrons' attention is given a reason to shift in that direction.
In the photo of the rubbernecking VladTrons, you can see a guy with a crown and magic scepter leaning over from the gatehouse tower - he's not a king or anything, he's just the gatehouse keeper.
Lastly, don't forget that the last part of your main objective is escaping back to Mocia to take command of your faction armies and lead them into battle. You won't be able to outrun the VladTron cavalry on foot, so you'll either need to find a way to prevent them from chasing you or find an alternate means of transportation to replace the carriage you just crashed.
