So they can move through zones out of turn, and the portal is in their dungeon. Awesome.
From what we know they cannot, this is why they need the failing trick to reach the courtyard. I think this is because they are under attack. If range attack would be protected by the zone rule. It would be simple to always win against melee unit. Just wait your turn and shoot them from the other hex. By attacking Jetstone allowed the enemy to launch a counter attack.
Ça risque de leur être mortel.
Actually, I think that works under most circumstances. You can counter range with range of your own, at least when in an attacking city. Firing across a hex on your own turn though when not attacking a city probably isn't very productive: hex's are large enough that off-turn units could find cover and/or move far enough away that a lot of arrows would be wasted. If being attacked was all you needed to launch a counter attack, nobody would have assumed the battle was won when Kingsworld went into effect, the purple and red dwagons could have still attacked the tower, which was the original plan to begin with. The courtyard below would not have been assumed to be safe.
Without the falling rule, they were sitting ducks, because moving between zones or into the garrison costs move. But once your in the garrison (which GK now is) there's no move to go between garrizon subzones once you have complete control of a given zone. Otherwise, somebody would tell parson his plan could easily fail if he waits till the arrows stopped, and Trem would probably not even have have started the arrow rain, it'd have been better for him to clog and fortify his entryways and reposition what archers he could. Rather, he see's what is happening and is hoping to take out as many units as he can with the arrow spam (even if he doesn't take down Wanda, Jetstone knows decrypted units can be dusted permanently, so he's still removing some units from the equation, and as it seem he has a plan, probably knowing that buys him planning/movement time till the arrows are out.)

Some minutes ago:
-Hey, let's parley instead of killing them all! What's the worst that could happen?
-Me, tempting the titans? How dare you insinuate such a thing?
I think it's more of a retort than sarcasm or shifting: allowing for the worst case scinario to even be a possibility if preventable during a risky situation is tempting fate far more then simply saying "it wont happen" when things were looking good
