Tomorrow makes it five days until Zaudunyanicon!

It's looking to be quite intimate and I'm going to do my best to make sure - so long as Bakker consents - that his "Talk to Fanatics" and Q&A from Friday night are recorded and posted online.

To include those who can't attend I thought I'd make this thread here to field questions for the Q&A as I'm almost positive that attendance is so small that Bakker will be able to answer a question from everyone attending and then some.

Cheers.

Thanks. I have two burning questions.
1. What is the (true) fate of Shae, or alternatively, any hints as to where I might get a hint about his fate?
2. What did Kellhus mean when he said to Proyas that at one point the Inchoroi must win?

Awesome, I'll stick in my most recent ones I forgot to add to the AMA.

1) How did the Tall become Tall?
2) Was Sil huge and wingless, grafted differently to Aurax and Aurang?
3) Can you explain the Excutiata, is it coincidence that it's reffered to as the Inverse Fire. Though it being based on pre-Arkfall statuary...that's interesting.
4) And a silly one. Why do the Mandate and Scarlet Spires wear the same colours...isn't that confusing. (I seem to remember the Mandate having both blue and yellow robes in PON before adopting a uniform red.

What is the purpose of the Ekkinű? Who took it from the Umbilicus and why?
Mystery denotes darkness

Do the Ceshaurim salt when hit by a chorae, or just die?  Also, (potential spoiler) will the great hero Likaro make his appearance in The No-God?

THIS!
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Who do the Zeumi fight in their Satakhanic warships?

What is in Atrithau to justify merchants travelling so far through Sranc infested wastes to get there?

Are all the Norsirai actually blond, or is this just a literary device?

What is the fourth original Gnostic School (after Mangaecca, Mihtrulic & Sohonc)?

Has the Celmomian Prophecy been fulfilled as of the end of The Unholy Consult?

What was the significance of the scene at the end of TTT between the child and the Synthese?

What is the Meta-God?

If he complains, tell him it's his own fault for appealing to nerds ;D

I'm starting to think we are better off not having him answer any questions.

If the Dunyain have remastered the basic Tekne,  then have they created any new weapons races or the grafting process?

When a person is possessed by the divine, is the end result merely an incarnation of the god wearing the person's flesh, or is the personality filtered through the human's soul/brain to form a sort of synthesis?

As a founding remember of the Consult, at what point did Mekeritrig "ride against the No-God"?

A sober man finds solace in mystery ;)

I agree though, getting answers kind of ruins the fun.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Bakker is far too cagey and too much of a troll to spill anything major that he has up his sleeve.

So the answers you get are going to be either very minor spoilers, deliberate misdirection, or outright made up bs.

Lol. Apologies for being short, Likaro, but I'm wildly hungover and I have zero patience for "fair-weather readers."

Don't watch the recording of the Q&A and disregard all extratextual statements? It's really not hard...
