The part about them not always working as intended?.

Watchtower should be just as an L4 agent doing recon in that area.   I'm not sure if the code gives a 5% chance of failure to detect Ambushing as an L1 would have on normal recon.

So here's the issue - and I emailed the turn to support so you could have a look - I have watch towers at a pop center. I also have an emissary there that is not concealed. I received no recon information from the watch tower this turn (doesn't even show the pc there). It has worked with no issue for over a dozen turns. There was no note in the turn about a failed recon or anything along those lines. It simply looks to not have done anything. It is possible that the people assigned to watch tower duty aren't the smartest or most driven, I suppose, but the description gives no indication of potential failure.

L4 recons won't pickup ambushing groups....see my post here...

About the watch tower, your pc has a glyph of concealment (hidden). You'll need a L10+ recon to get through one of those. That's why your Dire Wolf Familiar won't pick up anything there as well.

And your wizard's innate true seeing spell did the recon of the hidden pc on previous must have moved the guy.
