This could preceed any want to capture new capital sites.
Even if they don't have any new information, the already have enough (the existence of a Dirtamancy trap
that works across multiple hexes and is powerful enough to wipe out a huge force) to send the various sides scrambling to figure out what happened and what future threats might be in store (and, quietly, how they can get something this powerful for themselves).
From what the Transylvito group knows about Faq (that it was a hitherto-unknown side that Stanley conquered), they may have inferred that this unprecedented mega-spell came from there. If so, Jillian is the go-to person for whatever information they can get.
Is this a real holy war, or just a bunch of deluded boopholes croaking each other?
