But, don't Ciphrang burn in their own right? I mean, Aurang was pretty damned animalistic...

Serwa was described as Ciphrang by the Judging Eye and she had "burns upon burns".

I thought that there were other Gods who can save souls.

I think Kosotor was pretty self-aware and really, how accurate IS the Inverse Fire? It's a recruitment tool. The Consult would say anything to get recruits.

Well, if you don't know you're going to be ciphrang, that could still be scary. Look at Kosotor. He still feared damnation.

And really, the Consult would qualify as ciphrang.

As a POV or just described?

As for ciphrang requirements, if it requires a far greater predatory nature, then I think Saubon, at least, would qualify.

IIRC only two characters were shown to be "Dragged off to Hell": Proyas and Saubon. I often wondered what the significance of that was. The Judging Eye was never used on either of them and I'm pretty sure they were the only two with the POVs of being "Dragged".

To me, I play the At Best/At worst game.

At best: CIPHRANG BABY! Ascendant in some way. Reborn/Reincarnated in some way.

At worst: You'll never see either one of them again. They might be mentioned every once in awhile (Like Xinemus or Serwe), but they are dead and done. :(

Played Skyrim for quite a bit with a bowman/assassin/thief. NOT Proyas. I named him Dancer.

But, am now moving on to Persona 5.

Porn on Beta--Hypocrite

It would hard to get women to go "back to the kitchen" when a number of them can level an entire city. Sorcery is the great equalizer, now that women are no longer exempt from it.

Except there aren't very many witches as they are still "the few" and it's not safe to assume that they would fight for women who are not.

General Earwa / Ranking the Second Apocalypse Series (Spoiler Free)
« on: December 31, 2017, 05:28:14 pm »
Someone on Reddit decided to rank the series and I decided to do the same.

I liked the first trilogy better than the second group overall, but the second group had some of the best and most WOW moments ever.

1. The Great Ordeal. Some characters basically “faded away” from me while others became more compelling. Some of the most well written and best scenes are in this one. Truly EXPLOSIVE in some parts.

2. The Darkness that Comes before–Picked up BIG time once there was some conflict. Contains some very intense scenes between certain people and some of that sticks with me even now.

3. The Thousand Fold Thought–I wish that the scenes didn’t constantly cut, but things got real FAST and the ending is AMAZING.

4. White Luck Warrior–Things pick up in certain parts and contains one of the best and tragic magic fights EVER. Those two characters stole the show.

5. Warrior Prophet–Had some fantastic battle scenes and character interactions, but sometimes it dragged a bit. Still emotionally charged in some parts and contains some of my favorite interactions.

6. The Judging Eye–It introduces some of the coolest characters EVER and the SLOG is amazing. Honestly, they have the best scenes. But, despite the best Moria homage, it doesn’t quite hold up to the others.

7. The Unholy Consult–This book proves that only Bakker can make certain things beautiful. Loved the poetry. However, this is the first book I RAGE QUIT on. If you love a certain follower of the Aspect Emperor and he is “THE ONE”, then I highly recommend you read very carefully. Other characters are also given the shaft or they become so irrelevant that they might as well have stayed home.

Still not that bad a book though, I was pleased with the ending(probably for the wrong reasons, but still…), and I have no regrets getting into the series overall. Highly recommended.

Cants of Compulsion on Inrau? :( I never noticed that. Maybe Akka should have used that on Proyas.

I didn't care about Kellhus either way until the Unholy Consult.

Well, they got what they wanted. I wonder who sent that dream?

I actually enjoyed Proyas/Kayutas. Like for reals...

Too bad Kayutas was part of the ruin Proyas scheme. :(

I think it could be worth it. It could be, "now that I've got everyone pissed off, they're ready ... "

Really? What could /I/ possibly be ready for? I was fine with the ending. :p
