So there's been something I've been thinking of...
Looking at the announcement and the trailer, Jormag doesn't seem to want us dead. They want us as allies to bring about a new Tyria.
So then I got to thinking, why was the Commander invited to the Charr celebrations? If you're playing a Charr specifically, it makes sense, but why invite the Commander in general? Braham would've gone without us, I'm sure, if you mention it as a sort of Norn/Charr peace offer. Was it to inspire fear with Aurene? Or was it something else?
Does Jormag want the mole that we suspect is in the group to lead the Commander to him? Is that why the mole left just enough clues around for us to follow Bangar (rumors, obvious-looking bad guys, stealing the bow, etc.)? What if the colossus was not actually to stop us from following, but to stop us from turning around (as in, maybe it wouldn't have left toward the village)?
If it was Jormag's usual methods, the Commander would use caution before approaching. After all, they have no direct line of contact with the Commander and nobody they know would be manipulated so easily. But Bangar and Rytlock's son on the other hand... For the sake of Rytlock, the Commander would want to follow Bangar and the others to save them from getting in over their heads. This would get the Commander to willingly meet with Jormag without any concerns for their own safety.
