Theliopa will learn the true nature of Kelmomas.  She will try to communicate this to Esmenet but she will not be believed.

Oh - meant to remind everyone that posting the same speculation as another poster doesn't disqualify you, which I had earlier edited into MG's opening post. Just post your thoughts. No sense in everyone's name not being entered ten times.

Thanks for the clarity, Madness.

Question - Will Achamian reflect on his life, while close to death, and ponder on how much more he may have accomplished if he had more confidence and ambition...including being able to keep Esmenet?

Esmenet will hold the empire together, at least through the end of The Great Ordeal.

Prediction: "Heron" is an acronym (H.E.R.O.N) the first three words of which are High Explosive Rocket.

Question
What is the nature of No-God? What is contained in the Carapace?

Prediction
No-God is re-animated head of Cu'jara-Cinmoi, probably with his soul bound to it, in a confused returned-from-the-dead state, hence the WHAT AM I? question No-God always asks. TTT Glossary description of Cu'jara-Cinmoi death "... fought his way to Cu'jara-Cinmoi's position, but found only his headless body." was a giant Chekhov's Head (heh) for me - why mention such a specific detail, if it's irrelevant? And the recent excerpt from Grimdark Magazine also mentions "There is a head on a pole behind you." - as it describes Kellhus visiting Outside.

Prediction
Moenghus the Elder didn't die at the end of TTT. Rather he spoke to Kellhus from a secure undisclosed location, remotely controlling another Cishaurim's body made to look similar to his own as a precaution. It was mentioned previously that Moenghus was bad at most Psukhe practices requiring faith & passion, but very good at those requiring subtlety and intellect - such as his ability to send dreams to Dunyain at Ishual or to have Skauras speak with Xerius via his own body. After Kellhus left, and his sorcerous puppet died at the hand of Cnaiur, Moegnhus suffered a profound feedback shock, but also came to believe Kellhus's arguments and gained tremendous amount of faith becoming Meppa.

Probably, we'll know the answer to the following: What was the nature of Moenghus's "contamination" when he had returned from 'the wilderness" into which he had been sent to explore the threat of Sranc? Why was he exiled instead of just killed?

Prediction: Akka discovers more of the Truth of Seswatha and we finally link the Apocalypse to the past - the clues begin to make sense and we discover Seswatha is a filthy liar - if a good intentioned filthy liar.

Question: Will Akkas kneeling before Kellhus be an act submission or in dominance.

Question: Will we see more of the Mithrulic Artifacts and learn if Kellhus can create these.

Question: What effects does eating Sranc have - similar to Chanv and Qirri?

Prediction: We will learn the source of Chanv and it IS NOT dead sorcerers - their value comes only from the material value of salt to a medieval economy. Chanv comes from something entirely more distasteful than a salted sorcerer.

Question: Why Sirwitta was not put to death as Cû’jara-Cinmoi ordered? Why was his tongue cut out?
