I don't believe razing 2 cities will provide enough funds to pay all those megalogwiffs, caster, warlords, even without Jetstone turning to Faq.

To me it seemed like it would, for a turn or two or three. Not anything long-term, but enough to keep them alive for the time being (long enough for them to be used in another battle).

We really have no idea how much money sacking a city gives, do we. Has there been any indication to date?

20 000 Schmuckers for Kona or one of the Jitterati cities. Which might be enough to support Tram and Tram alone long-term.

OK, that gives us an idea then! Parson's upkeep is 1000/turn, archons are 200/turn. 20,000 from a single GK city seems like it support a small army for a few turns, a large army for one turn, or a single important unit (an heir or Chief warlord) for a long time (20 turns or so).
Parson's upkeep is also VERY unusually high, so he's more than likely among the highest costing GK units for upkeep...
The thought strikes me. On the basis of Tram's proposal at present, Parson could accept, then next turn when they're supposed to 'leave', make a surprise strike at Spacerock anyway. Pay the million schmucker penalty, and take it back when they capture the city and take the treasury.

In terms of upkeep, GK had a huge army in Book 1, 5 casters, 8 warlords, 50+ dragons. After buying Parson, they only had around 150k schmuckers left, and had more than enough (including income from the capital city) to pay for the army for the next few turns or so. Jillian's force is significantly smaller, only the one caster (which we know from her text update is significantly more expensive than other units, due to her 'OMG i haz a caster!' thoughts), and she has three cities to help fund upkeep.
If they have that much. We dunno how credit works in erf. I dunno if you can spend more than you have. They have alot of expenses each turn but they also have revenue coming in each turn. Do we know how deep their pockets really are?
From trams POV they are probably a lot lower on Shmuckers than they really seem to be. Tram probably believes that those dwagons were popped via cash and didn't think about a super farm. He probably doesn't realize the decrypted don't require money. He probably hasn't considered that every new city rebuilt was done via Sizemore. He certainly doesn't realize that GK came into a few million worth of gems.

They're probably the richest side in Erfworld as at the end of Book 1. Given that they didn't pop the dwagons (if there's any popping cost), and that their strike force is primarily Decrypted units and dwagons, it's entirely likely that they still have a huge pool of schmuckers at their disposal. Or, Sizemore can just go down and dig a few more gems. He can do that off turn (see early Summer Updates).

A nerd, indeed. Now, a geek would have been able to tell you that the loopback device can be addressed via the entire 127.0.0.0/8 network. :)
