Terrible analogy, but others have already covered why it's terrible.
Covered by others. Hexes are big. There is no reason to assume those tents are in a different hex than Tramenis is standing in. Instead, think of it as Ossomer and Trammenis standing on the edge of a city. Ansome is outside the city. And the Casters are deep inside the city.Perhaps this will help. Can we agree that Ansom and the Jetstone Princes are in two different hexes, and that they have met at the hex border to hold their parley? If we can, and if the casters are in the hex with the Princes, then Ansom pointing off in the distance and referring to a piece of real estate which is a part of the same piece of real estate that his brothers are standing on is just odd. The casters are in a different hex, or Ansom is acting strangely. And there was no reaction from his brothers to indicate that they took this as odd. They might have said "Yes, right here", and Trammenis would have made some quip about Ansom being loopy.
I wrote quite aware of the previous incident, but there was a reason, that the force trailed a few hexes, and it wasn't implied that they must stretch because Ansome later wanted to stall so he could re-concentrate his forces prior to attacking Efedup. There would be no reason to wait to re concentrate his forces if they would not all fit in a single hex.We know, quite clearly, that large forces are deployed across multiple hexes. A casual perusal of the RCC forces approaching GK shows that without any doubt. So if you are assuming that the Jetstone forces are all in a single hex now, I believe you are very mistaken. The opening sentence of the GK expeditionary forces saga is "The column was three hexes long." If the Jetstone forces are so few that they can only fill a single hex, they are not even going to be a bump for the GK steamroller and no veil would have been necessary.
