The decrypted are people you'd want on your side if the world went to hell what because they are brainwashed, and because their primary goal is Gobwin Knob's current primary goal, i.e., preserving Wanda. And, in this update, they are revealed to be almost as good as Parson at planning ways to accomplish this singular goal.
Or perhaps they are willing to throw way their "lives" without accomplishing anything at all.
Once the Jetstone pikers clear space in front of the bridge the Jetstone archers and casters can enter the hex without entering range of the decrypted archers.
Tremenis should understand maneuvers. An envelopment would allow Jetstone to leverage offense. If the archers follow Ford's orders precisely they will not fire at the flanking pikes and will get killed without shooting. Jetstone can pick up the unused bows and arrows and take them back to use on Wanda.
If they fought at the bridge the pikers would be on even terms and would last for awhile. The archers would give GK the advantage unless Tremenis advanced his archers, warlords, and casters. When the valuable troops entered the hex they would still be in range of the archers.
