I've just re-started playing Elemental after giving it a few months to mature. Despite some bugs (Out of Memory especially), it is getting fun to play.
One small thing I've noticed that I feel should be changed is Cloaks. You can buy a variety of cloaks for your heroes and sovereign at the item shop. However, several of them (+1 movement and +1 movement / +1 visibility I've noticed so far) can only be bought and equipped for males, not females. This seems like a pointless restriction - and shouldn't be hard to fix.
I suggest making all equipment usable by all characters - or else grant female characters equipment that is unusable by male characters.
