Tapatalk double posts every time I try to post!

Off the top of my head :

What's up with HITB?

How did cnaiur get through kellhus defenses when they first dueled?

Who did kellhus converse with when on the circumfix (and later in TGO)?

Why does serwe see halos on the skin spy?

How is serwe the cipher for ____?

Why did moenghus really leave Ishual?

Did moenghus tutor conphas?

How much of cnaiurs role did moenghus condition deliberately?

Did moenghus prevent cnaiur from attacking conphas after the battle of kiyuth?

Was kellhus supposed to join the holy war or avoid it? (He only joins because they run into serwe, he was going to kill cnaiur and head south before that)

What's up with the ensouled skin spy, is it a consult or moenghus artifact?

How come the synthese can find the skin spy with mimara but not moenghus imprisoned skin spies in kyudea?

Just what did mimara accomplish when she passed through the chorae (an event that presages the first appearance of the wight)?

Akka says the topos was supposed to negate the chorae with the wight and the seal, mimara used it anyway, successfully, was this use novel and unique to her or antique (but forgotten lost over the years) ? Why did the chorae continue to salt Akka and cleric in the topos?

When maithanet says his siblings were drowned is that literally mean they were killed or figuratively indicate some sort of baptism like ceremony?

Was maithanet killed or a body double?

Was theliopas stutter a result of inrilatus' abuses?

Who was theliopa named after?

Was kellhus path to leweth conditioned (aka, why no sranc)?

Why did mekeritrig let kellhus go?

What is the crab handed boys name?

What is going on with Kelmomas and his voice?

What kind of singing did serwa do, mundane or sorcerous?

Who is emilidis, is he still alive? Any more artifacts?

Is the inverse fire true or false?

Is Meppa alive?

Do cishaurim salt when choraed?

Are skin spies repurposed sex dolls?

Was wutteat the last wracu?

Are wracu machines, organic machines, or organic entirely?

What's up with wreoleth and the survivors of said?

Really? Nukes? Are there more? deliberately triggered or a foiled plot?

Was the person in the line going to the golden room nau cayuti?

Was nau cayuti the no god?

What is the no god?

Did the heron spear successfully kill the no god as in legend or misfire (as in Akkas last dream in TTT)?

Where is the heron spear?

What was the crab handed boy doing when he caused squirrel and the chorae to interact and "make light"?

Is the zero God a thing or a red herring?

Can you make qirri from sranc?

Can you make sranc from humans?

Who is the traveler from the TJE prologue?

Is kellhus guiding Akkas changed dreams?

Is Akka right about the judging eye? Will mimara lose it when she gives birth.

Still a bullshit story kellhus is lying or repeating a lie.

A culture that goes underground and suicides contamination has no concept of exile

As I said on the other forum I'm inclined to think that moe just stood up from the probability trance and walked out of Ishual without a word or indication of motivation.

Why ? "When the thought first came to me I was quite unprepared"

I think moe started experiencing the thought in Ishual and in response to its proddings he just left.

The total unpredictability of his action paralyzed the dunyain as they were completely unable to parse it and thus unable to react to try and stop him until it was too late and he was beyond their reach (they'd be terrified and or paralyzed once leaving Ishual anyway, so they would have a very short window to stop him before being overcome by experiencing a non sterile environment.

But I truly love this theory, that moe experienced domination and like kellhus he became addicted to domination

And it is kellhus version of samarmis. As the passage indicates, he's always had a second secret voice (Ala samarmis.)

I take it like this:

The consult has spent twenty years testing kellhus abilities and will be aware of his sensory abilities: meaning they know kellhus will smell the sranc and bash rag immediately upon arrival. Which he does.  There is no way they can be ignorant of this ability post ishual war.

But they still lay a trap they know will not work. But they lay a second trap hoping the first will conceal its existence long enough and they bait the trap.

The second trap is the nuke, they know kellhus will anticipate a second trap, and indeed, kellhus does as he immediately begins excavating In search of the trap.

But they have to bait the trap.

Aurang is the bait, Aurang appears in order to lure kellhus away from finding the nuke.

But here is where it goes pear shaped. Saccarees, does not summon kellhus to take the bait.

Kellhus as a result finds the nuke and is able to salvage the ordeal from certain defeat.

We'll see about eventually consolidating the ARC subforum threads into the TGO subforum proper but, personally, I think it's a neat part of the monument - an encapsulated time and space :).
An obscenity! As are all monuments, all memorials. What are they but prostheses that pronounce our impotence, our debility? I may live forever, but alas, what I have lived is mortal.

On the singing: dread portion suggests sorcery, no doubt about it.

On the other hand they are at the exact location where sorweel was overwhelmed by the joyous and continuous song that used to fill that location, he even notes how special it was to hear the voices of women and children singing there.

Additionally, the tall has wiped out the consult leadership, and serwe doesn't need to kill potentially powerful allies.

Serwe has been conditioning the mountain with mundane singing for months, there is a huge audience because of the songbird.

Finally, torturer was afraid of her singing because she is dunyain, but he is not afraid of sorcery us singing from her, he gags her and she thinks her plot has gone to shit.

It all seems to add up to mundane singing, but it could just be more lame sorcery rather than clever dunyain tactics.

Author Q&A / Your suffering, Seswatha, is my salvation
« on: July 12, 2016, 08:09:01 pm »
When Cet'ingira / Mekeritrig says this to Seswatha, what does he mean?

This line suggests one possibility to me, that the consult might be taking on an agricultural role for the gods: nurturing anguish, degradation and suffering--such as Mekeritrig's wall of horror at Dagliash--in order to better slake the endless hungers of the Starving Sky and divert hungry attentions away from themselves. 

Is Mekeritrig laboring for salvation in such a manner, if not, how does he believe his labors are directed in the cause of his own salvation?
