Excellent memory, indeed, shadowbingshoe! Between them, Terisa and Geraden broke seven mirrors. It's your question, and well done!

Wow, cool! Head Banger

Continuing with the numerical theme, how many times was Terisa saved from a gruesome death by knight(s) in shining armour? (Madmen included)

I can only think of 2 off hand, once by Artegel and once by Havelock, but I feel there are more.

2 is happenstance. We're talking about Terisa. Shocked

Let's see what I can remember....

The hallway after the meeting (Perdon and Kragen)
The first time in her room (Havelock, Argus, and Ribald)
The courtyard festival (Artagel)
The red furry things (Gereden, Argus, Ribald, and Nyle)
The King's Audience (Lebbick's last act)
Bad timing on Gart's Part (Eremis)
The Ghouls (Fayle)
The queen's kidnapping (Gereden again)

That's at least 8 clear cases.

Do we count the times there was general mayhem:
Artagel's second encounter with Gart?
The Wolf/Firecat attack at Houseldon?
Her own self-rescues?
- when she shifted the mirror to escape to the Closed Fist?
- when she shifted the mirror to her dungeon location?
- when she took out Eremis?

This brings us up to a minimum of 13.

And I'm sure I'm still missing something. Darn it, pretty much 3/4 of the story is her getting into trouble and being rescued by someone...

P.S. Egads more keep springing to mind -
The Champion shielding her from the rubble as he shoots his way out of the castle, and/or the conjury digging her out of the rubble
Quillon rescuing her from the jail cell
The Tor rescuing her from her initial arrest.

Good ones.

Maybe I was being too literal...people unexpectedly turning up when she was alone and threatened.

Some of those, she was already with the people/person who rescued her...

Yeah, I suspect Shoe just tossed out what he thought would be a relative softball, but I'm not sure we can come up with a sufficiently deterministic definition to get a single number, based on all of the times it has happened.

But maybe he did have a definition in mind?

Looks nervously around. Huh? Ribbit No Confused 'What's the definition? What's the definition??'

My thinking is whenever Terisa is doomed until someone comes to her rescue. Simple enough, right?

All right, let's go over IrrationalSanity examples. that's a good way to clarify this:

agreed.

Quote:

of course.

Quote:

The courtyard festival (Artagel)


ditto, though Geraen also bravely sort of helped. Wink

Quote:

The red furry things (Gereden, Argus, Ribald, and Nyle)


a big one. The three foretold riders.

Quote:

The King's Audience (Lebbick's last act)


I have a problem with this one because Terisa wasn't saved. She was kidnapped as planned. The Tor was saved. Also Congery members. But Eremis got his prize.

Quote:

Bad timing on Gart's Part (Eremis)


What?

Quote:

The Ghouls (Fayle)


Yes.

Quote:

The queen's kidnapping (Gereden again)


I don't remember exactly. Did he defend her or from the raiders or calmed her frantic horse?

Quote:

Artagel's second encounter with Gart?


You mean when the roaches almost ate them? The attack was aimed against Geraden but if Artagel and more importantly Havelock didn't help they'd both be dead. Also, Geraden and Terisa were constantly together so it's likely she'd die even if she didn't go to the lower levels. So I counted this one.

Quote:

The Wolf/Firecat attack at Houseldon?


No. This is general mayhem. Though who knows how good communications between Eremis group and the wolves+firecats are. I seem to remember they locked eyes with Terisa? Maybe Eremis gave them Terisa's dirty undies to sniff. So... possibly?

Quote:

Her own self-rescues?
- when she shifted the mirror to escape to the Closed Fist?


agreed. she did this on her own so it doesn't count.

Quote:

- when she shifted the mirror to her dungeon location?


This one does though. She made it possible, but someone else needed to translate her out of trouble.

Quote:


- when she took out Eremis?


as you say. The only one helping her there was Eremis ginormous narcissism.

Quote:

Tru dat. Big Grin

Quote:

Yes I counted those (as two).

Quote:

Quillon rescuing her from the jail cell



And this one!

Quote:

The Tor rescuing her from her initial arrest.


Maybe. She wasn't in danger of death that time.

xxxx

There's at least one more life and death rescue and two, possibly three figurative/emotional deaths you didn't mention.
