Much atrocity is bound to follow, and maybe the world will be massively messed up, but I do hope that at the end of it all, it shall be saved.
Definitions of "saved" vary significantly in this series. The Consult is trying to save the world, too, it's just they go about it lots differently than other characters.

Just letting you know I have the current high score.
Is that 23? It gets pretty tough as it slowly dials up the enemies reaction speed over time. Considering some kind of health system for missed clicks and to cap the reaction increase at a certain point and just make it random.

How is it? I keep forgetting about it lol.

This is actually a new game with the same themes - this one is a rapid reflex test, the other was a resource management game. I wanted to test a model of play that had rapid engagement, as another game with a similar model had done well.

So in this game is very quick - when the sign says 'Kill' click or hit space and see if you can beat its reaction speed.

Granted, for now it ends in doom eventually.

A strong, central Dunyain character to lead the series would be boss. Dunyain made this series of books for me, and if Achamian, his child or Mimara is to lead the last set of books, I'll be gravely disappointed. Crabicus to the rescue! Also, on that point, more on the origins of the Dunyain; why they've adopted their methodology and etc. I feel like there is still some mystery there.

Other than that, a relatively happy ending. Much atrocity is bound to follow, and maybe the world will be massively messed up, but I do hope that at the end of it all, it shall be saved.
This, but the exact opposite.
It would be cool to see achamians son and kellhus's grandson as the protagonists.

I dont want any more dunyain origin though, except maybe a chapter or two about the mutilated origins

The Unholy Consult / Re: Another (perhaps) simple question

Crackpot time.

Do we actually know for a fact that "world" is a synonym for all reality and not just the stellar body? There could be numerous worlds already shut and numerous "crusader arcs" bringing salvation to the rest of the universe. It's just this one arc had a crash story, so it's highest weapon race is totally wrong about history of the shutting endeavour -- shutting was successfull all along and Earwa is a botched land, not promised one.

The Unholy Consult / Re: [TUC Spoilers] - Cna´ur/Ajokli theory
« Last post by Simas Polchias on April 18, 2018, 10:05:48 pm »
So, here is my idea. In my reading it make sens that Cna´ur isn't possessed by Ajokli at the end as I can read in many places, but instead become Ajokli.

So... If IF is the portal to the Ajokli's domain and Ajokli ascended on Earwa, wasn't that the very reason inchoroi recognized that Earwa as promised land?

I have trouble imagining that both of them became Ajokli in any shared way. That particular god doesn't war against itself but with others.

Ajoklikellhus dutifuly helps with the plan, but Ajoklicnaiur spreads the fuckery all over it! Bonus points if these two guys never meet each other -- so Ajoklicknealiluhrus doesn't understand why people call him the trickster. To put it shortly, Ajokli is a mad god.

But, all signs in the book point to the Gods existing before Arkfall, why else would it be the promised land??

It's a retroactive existence. There were no gods before Arkfall, but afther Arkfall they were always before Arkfall.

The Unholy Consult / Re: Identity of the Mutilated
« Last post by Simas Polchias on April 18, 2018, 09:53:19 pm »
Do we actually know for a fact those mutilations came from tortures by Consult and/or from war wounds? Could be a self-inflicted thing after getting full access to IF. That way the Unscarred is the one hell of a creepy person. Or he was in a control gropu to have both IFed and nonIFed duniyains. Or he's a mastermind who tested IF with others and just observed the results.

The Great Ordeal / Re: Erratics and the Ten Yolk Legion

but when the battle moved into the labyrinthine passages below Ishuńl, they got lost in its depths, they went even nuttier, and ended up burying themselves in desperate attempts to escape.

Suddenly, I've put together their "technical" defeat under Ishual and the WMGs about Ishual being the backdoor of Ishterebinth or some minor cunuroi manson etc. Could those erratics remember something? Like, protecting exactly those (or very similar) halls from inchoroi horde?

He loves Serwe, Esmenet,Cnaiur, Akkamian and even Proyas, the worst sin however is that he loves himself. Every mistake Kellhus makes is because of love...

My reread of TUC could be a very unprobable thing, so I beg forgiveness if I will mix some fact.

Anasurimbor Koringhus was described as a greater duniyain than his father, right? And one of the main fact about him is saving of defective, little, helpless son with further care.

So I take it some things run in the family and the talent for being  a cold, reasoning, effective thing capable of hacking reality could actually come from being capable of deep emotions -- like, if that conflict is always with you, it's your life-time, personal, permanent gym. In terms of a rpg, you're constanly generating small points of experience by yourself.

That way most duniyains are just anemic and well-bred pug-likes, who have nothing to fight inside them and thus lack most parts, levels and volumes of such skill (imagine an inversion of Moe's issue with Psukhe). They are a deadlock path.
