The No-God / Re: TNG- Your expectations and wants
« on: November 15, 2017, 12:10:41 pm »
PLOT: I would like to see a few POV from characters from different nations that experience TNG's awakening. People forming alliances around whether Kellhus was a *false prophet or a martyr. I would like Akka Mimara and Esmi to have some meaningful impact on the rest of the story. I want to see TNG destroy a city or nation and have a POV character flee that event.

GENERAL: More reflections of events and characters causing events rather than larger than life things just... happening. Not that the latter is worse, but PoN felt more grounded.

If the face covers showed one character from the series gradually grow more mature and reflect bits from the story I would totally be down with that, and I assume that was the intention. Can't believe its just a photoshopped stock photo passed down.

The Unholy Consult / Re: Did Kellhus find Oblivion?
« on: September 28, 2017, 06:04:09 am »
But Bakker said that Kellhus is dead but not done. So its unlikely that he has found oblivion if hes still a player.

My cheeky "+1 8)" was only because profgrape and I were talking about it off-forum.

I'll plant my flag again at Bakker's quote meaning that Kellhus' machinations aren't yet played out. Kellhus is dead, dead, as far as I'm concerned.

As much as I hate agreeing with Madness, I agree with Madness; Kellhus might be off the board but the Thought is alive and well.

He may be dead - but what now with him? Is he food for the gods?
kellhus will be eaten by the gods but have discovered a way to poison and impregnate them, from there he will burst out chestburster style and the gods will be hunted one by one by the true Hunger

That would still mean they prepared Kelmomas to come out at the precise moment meant they knew a God would inhabit Kellhus. Seems too convenient of a moment.

No, that is simply your opinion, which you are entitled to. I am also permitted to share mine. Thank you.
I still stick by mine because I'm not sure Kelmomas would backstab his father after changing his tune.
POV>Conjecture

he wasnt interviewed extensively. he most likely couldn't even enter the ark until after the horn toppled, due to the massive battle. he also was probably carried up until the final moments before arriving near the throne room. like i said he was being held down by a skin spy until after kellhus/godtime which is where he hears his father and wants to exclaim his excitement

I dont really understand why little Kel would betray his father after giving himself over to him and slaying Sorweel. He begs and would prove anything for him. I don't buy the idea of him then turning over to the dark side so to speak especially without a POV chapter.

What I got from it was a skin spy basically says, "OK dont come out and distract Kellhus until AFTER he gets possessed by a literal God."

However if Kelmomas was being held hostage by a skin spy in a separate room, and then Kellhus/Ajokli pins all of the skin spies to the floor by their chorae (releasing Kelmomas), I would like a sentence or two at least of him being in awe or curiously drawn towards this event and then stumbling into his fathers presence.

The Unholy Consult / Re: TUC Reviews
« on: August 25, 2017, 05:02:58 am »
Where are the 10/10s? Reviewers have no balls anymore honestly. They find one thing they dont like personally and bring it down to sound smarter. Lets see these reviews reviewed in 5 years and see how bad they aged compared to the holy consult

The Unholy Consult / Re: The thing we're all missing
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:11:09 pm »
I like the theory, but in none of the scenes where we get the Inchoroi they never mention something similar to this. And the Consult spent a great deal of time searching for Ishual in TWP-TTT. I would think they would have said something like
"Ah yes a ember, do you think that time has come you pretty pretty skin spy?

The Unholy Consult / Re: Who actually liked TUC?
« on: August 20, 2017, 02:23:23 am »
That was my first impression as well, I read the book too fast.

Now that its sunk into my shell of a skull I love it more than I did before TUC. Give it time young apprentice

are not all dunyain Anasurimbor? I thought they just took the namesake of the "boy who lived" prince who was left at IshuaL?

So.... does Ajokli finally see the No-Godthrough Cnauirs eyes? This is a big deal going into the third series, right?

I am still confused on how little Celmomas could have always been the No God, because if he made a deal with Ajokli early on then the Gods surely can see him. I assumed Celmomas just fit the lineage well enough and that the Consult wanted to wait and see what Kellhus would do before unleashing the No-God, (since any of the Dunyain could have fit that place.)

The Unholy Consult / Re: [TUC Spoilers] Conditioned ground
« on: August 12, 2017, 02:50:12 am »
Speaking of Conditioned Ground, the encounter in TTT between Kellhus and Moenghus in retrospect foreshadows the taking over of the Consult by the Dunyain.

Kellhus sees that his father will aligned himself with the Consult to save his soul and will try to assassinate him, and that is when he decides to dispose of his father. And he tells him the enigmatic, I am more (presumably) by that time his interaction with Ajoklis is already in place.

Thus Kellhus in his probability trance predicts the possibility of some Dunyain joining the Consult in order to save themselves.
Jesus that is good.

Author Q&A / Re: Midlist Authors & Online Piracy
« on: August 12, 2017, 02:35:32 am »
I can't quite nail this point down, but there is something to be said about millennials taking this issue too personally, and having a warped perspective. The internet has been so instrumental in their lives / growing up that they cant help but see themselves personally shaping it. "I am apart of this movement."

It also doesn't help that we live live in an Everything Now era. Any critism of this new state is met with "Get with the times old man!"

And yeah, people will make record profits even with piracy, the internet has simply built more roads to access customers.
