I ain't so sure 0beron. Just before Goodminton fell Wanda was made Heir, that was the whole point. Nevertheless, once the capital fell all units not stacked with her vanished in the magic of disbanding. The situation isn't quite identical here though since Goodminton only had Goodminton - no ancilary cities, nor a spare origional Capital Site.
But if it defaulted by default, I don't see what the rush to the Throne is about other then possibly catching Parson. And Tremm's rather bleak tone seems to suggest to me that he expects a full wipe. That would be all kinds of trouble though, as it would leave us with only him, two casters, and a bounty that has already been paid.
Perhaps it'd work something like what we were roughly told in Gobwin Knob. It was mentioned back then that if Stanley fell, everyone inside Gobwin Knob would wind up in manacles until croaked or captured at leisure, while all field units disband. In likelyhood, loosing the capital might be similar, putting all of the remaining Jetstone cities into manacles, but not destroyed. Sorta like a mass-fugitive status, as soon as Tremm shows up to reclaim the city, the manacles drop. So getting to Jetstone the City is still important.
I dunno, Sylvia is really making this hard. Speculation only goes so far, it's just how bleak Tremm looks that has me bugged. At the least I don't feel their column is safe at all.

It would, since we know stacks can go up to at least to 23 thanks to some out of comic confirmation on something silly
. The only reason to keep the stack at just 8 is for multiple stacks for the bonus, or because only units in the Heir's personal stack remain in a Disbanding wipe, but after said wipe their Upkeep is his problem from his purse. Which could be a limiting factor if it comes to that, who knows?
