It is unclear how command and control would operate in that situation. Would Tremenis still be chief warlord. He might just be 1 warlord out of many since Jetstone the side would have ended with Slately,
Also, what happens if he holds the city from the attack, can he declare himself the new Ruler, does he become a barbarian, or does the city just re-freeze.

Stanely, Caesar, Jillian, Haggar, Ossomer and Ansom, all seemed to play the role of both chief warlord and heir. if this is the case, then this would be the reason why Trem does not get to be heir as opposed to his brothers; it's because he's not well suited for battle.
Parson is chief warlord but not Heir. I think it might be a loyalty thing. Maybe Heirs get a penalty to loyalty, while Chief warlords get a bonus.
granted, it is actually possible that it's the case that an heir can only be named when the heir-to-be is IN the capitol... So you could name a new heir if it's off turn, but only if that heir is in the capitol, which Trem was not... But that's just overthinking... the important thing is, is that it is Jetstone's turn and Trem is going to see his father
I think that is likely, Slately should promote Tremenis to Heir immediately. This allows them present two targets. For as long as Jetstone has no Heir, Slately is a very high priority target. If an Heir is available, then there is less incentive to kill him.

If this does go to the ground, his infantry is now tougher than they would have been than if they'd come straight back to Spacerock.
Well, they will be stronger after they have healed. A wounded level 2 is not necessarily stronger than a healed level 1.
