Any Masters of 'Go'?

I read Rich Burlew's wonderfully geeky D&D pop-lit webcomic Order of the Stick (which is just wrapping up its best arc yet, so it's a good time to jump on). I have a question for any people who know their way around a Go board.

A character in OOTS, the Monster-in-the-Dark, or MITD, is of an as-yet unspecified species, and its identity is one of the bigger unsolved mysteries in the strip to date. In this strip
it plays Go with a friend, and Burlew has said there are clues to its identity in the game state he shows.
I have the barest familiarity with the rules, but I'm guessing Metafilter has a few people who know it pretty well - what can you tell me about the players, or the nature of the game they've played, by looking at that board?
