People are repeating same things, and because of that, i'm going to repeat myself again:
I'm just saying that Tram is being a damn idiot, because he assumes that he knows everything.
1) He is against someone who beat his brother 25:1
2) Charlie told him that he's the strongest being in erfworld and parleying will be to his favor.
Now, people will reply, saying that "oh but he doesn't trust Charlie" sure... example; (a very strange one, but will be enough to explain what i mean, i hope)
When you saw in TV news that a train you're about to board carries a very important politician who's going to talk about peace with a hostile country, and that country is known to bomb trains to kill diplomats, will you still board it, fully confident that absolutely NOTHING will happen? No? Even if you don't trust the source, someone, like TV, like Charlie, saying that the train will be bombed, means something
unusual will happen at that train. Maybe no bombing but something else which won't favor you? Oh maybe it's a false report to confuse people? You'll never know for sure. Will you risk your life? You can just take another train and be safe, instead of insisting "NO, i will get on that train", and that won't cost you more than half an hour.
Tram isn't a total moron. He understands Jetstone's situation. He knows that peace would favor Jetstone. But really...he's against a warlord who didn't even bother talking about "truce" when he was totally overwhelmed and his life was threatened in that battle. Now, he's sitting outside the battle (well, he wants to come to battle, but Tram doesn't know this, i'm explaining from Tram's point of view). He isn't in such a bad situation as before. At TBfGK, survival of Gobwin Knob depended on that battle. Now? They'll lose an advantage - sure, a great advantage, but not their existence - at worst case, and will be close to RCCII in strength.
And he started killing Jetstone infantry during parley. This IS a sign that he doesn't want to parley. Would you really kill enemy troops while begging for peace? No. If yes, then you aren't being very "diplomatic". And Parson is NOT being diplomatic, in either way.
Jetstone needs peace. But signs point that GK doesn't want peace. Maybe Jetstone will lose against GK in long term, but it's still better than being destroyed now. And come on...How can Tram believe that GK would agree to peace? Jetstone knows that GK is ruled by fanatics who believe they're destined to destroy royalty and rule the entire Erfworld using 4 Arkentools. Usual reply to this: "But Tram is doing the best he can: diplomacy" Yes but he shouldn't be dumb enough to believe that what he does best will ALWAYS get him out of the mess. So someone please explain why they think Tram isn't being arrogant. And repeating same things as before won't count, since i wrote this post, and the first one, replying to that.
And trotsky, once again, i'm not saying that Tram is being an idiot just because he's wrong. I'm saying that because he's being damn arrogant. He isn't being himself, really. We know that Tram isn't arrogant and naive. So something is strange and i don't understand why he's being so overconfident.
And really, why shouldn't he trust Charlie? It should be obvious to Tram that Charlie wants GK down. I mean...he's offering a bounty for each decrypted archon croaked. Isn't that enough to believe his words about GK? It should be. Even if he doesn't trust Charlie usually, he has enough reasons to trust him NOW, and should have done what he advised.
Now we don't know what Parson's exploit is, for sure, but if it's something which could be stopped with skipping parley and shooting down Wanda directly as Charlie said, Tram will regret this in after-erf and maybe become a ghost
Now that would be funny
Trems needs to hold the idiot ball because both his brothers shoved it down his throat and let him in a no-win scenario where GK either crushes them by brute strenght or Hamster cheese, and from wich the only possible escape would be an alliance with GK.
Now that's a good point. But will Jetstone really be in such a bad situation if they destroy GK airforce?
Tram said it himself, but Parson said it himself that it's game over if their airforce is destroyed. And I believe Parson's prediction is more accurate than Tram's.
