The Unholy Consult / [TUC Spoilers] Ishual
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:58:16 pm »
Has anybody read the Glossary entry for Engus?  The mention of a cursed valley in the Demua Mountains, and piles of Sranc bones, seems to suggest that there was something 'wrong' with Ishual, long before the Dunyain got there.

The Unholy Consult / [TUC Spoliers] Kellhus' children
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:36:19 pm »
There is a scene in the White Luck Warrior where Inrilatas is talking to Kelmomas, and he says something along the lines of 'we (the kids) have inherited father's faculties in some mangled manner'.  From what we learn about Kellhus' various children over the course of TAE, it seems to me that they each represent various aspects of him.

  • Kayutas - the mundane one.  Physically impressive war-leader/ prince of men. But not as great a leader as Kellhus
    Theliopa - passionless intellect.  But not as intelligent as Kellhus
    Serwa - super-sorceror.  But not a powerful as Kellhus.
    Inrilatas - deranged megalomaniac and deliberate transgressor of taboos.  Inri specifically states he cannot control himself in the way his father can

Which leaves us with Kelmomas
Has two souls which switch (possibly uncontrollably) in and out of his body.  Is a murdering psychopath.  Has a very strong need to be loved to the exclusion of his other siblings.  Cannot be seen by the Gods.
Given what the events of TUC, what does this suggest about Kellhus?

Introduce Yourself / Hello

Hi everybody.  I've been a big fan of the Second Apocalypse since TDTCB came out - possibly my all time favourite fantasy series.  Anyway, I decided enough of lurking, get on the forum.
