Now that you mention it, I have to agree. There is no shortage of dedication among the disciples of the Stone Lore. I begin to wonder if there is a unique reverence accorded to the One Tree.

Maybe it's because the historically, the One Tree is mentioned in conjunction with Berek and the Staff of Law. Berek never (to my knowledge) used Orcrest, and there's no single talisman (unless the stone in the Krill is Orcrest) to associate it with.

Imagine the amount of wild magic that'd be engraven in it!

The only thing that invokes the wild magic is white gold.

I'm really getting interested in this One Rock now too. Being that it is only mentioned once in all six books is kind of strange. Especially, sense there is quite a bit of Orcrest use in both Chrons.

I suspect SRD couldn't figure out a way to get to the center of the Earth. I wonder how they got orcrest out in the first place, or how they know it's from the One Rock. Maybe it came up through volcanos, and the more powerful Gravelingas could feel it for what it was.

But I suppose the "heart" of the Earth doesn't have to be at the center. Although if it isn't, I don't know why we wouldn't have heard more about it. If I was a Gravelingas, I'd build my stone house right on top of it!

i still think its strange, that in the crons there as so many gravalingases, yet only one meantion of this One Rock...

you would think that a gravalingas would know of this rock and share the knowledge of it... where as TOT is meationed hundreds of times, the One Rock is only one... does this mean TOR is weaker than TOT or is it just that TOR has never been seen?

and if it had never been seen, how do we know of its existance? does this also mean that this giant rock is orcrest? or does the rock only become orcrest once is it broken from TOR?

so many questions, so few answers Sad

Well, plant/technology intergration is an interesting theory. The first 3, 4 times, they had to use SoL, SoL, reg. staff, and High Wood. So, 3:4 times they used this possible technology.

Hmm... interesting.... Smile

What also was interesting was when they used the high wood to communicate in the Illearth War. But, I hesitate to call it technology. I would think it would be more accurate to call it magic. Why, you ask? All that communication; no roaming charges. Screwy

I think the just about anyone who used those communication rods paid a very high price for each use. Reminds me of AT&T. Smile

Actually, I think the riders and their Ruhk staffs more closely resemble people with AT&T cell phones. AT&T is not intent on killing their customers; that would be too quick, and not nearly profitable enough. Instead, why not milk a pint of blood out of them each month? You get a lot more blood that way. Can you hear me now? Good.Screwy

dAN, what do you and Trent have against AT&T? AT&T is an vernerable icon of corporate history. Beloved by its customers and raised to almost godlike stature with its peers. I am shocked and deeply disturbed that anyone would liken them with vampires or members of the Clave. But then again I did get one messed up long distance bill last month. You know come to think of it they are pretty rude to me when I have to talk to a rep. And whats with that name of theirs? Who do they think they are? I've got half a mind to...

Bing, buddy! I haven't talked to you since we last went on patrol together! You should talk about long distance bills! Did you know Canada isn't part of my LD plan? Cripes, it's only five miles away from Megatropolis! I know what we should do to AT&T. Do you remember the phrase "It's knit one, purl two time?" You betcha do! Let 'em have it! Screwy

Its interesting to read this thread because here we have a classic case of an observation of at least some relevance being diverted immediately into farce from the very second post.

Thanks dAN. Smile
