I would bet Foul couldn't travel through Andelain, but I don't really know. I need to give this more thought. I suspect some of the answers lie in Soaring Woodhelven, because it ended in fire - which has a ring of logic to it.

Didn't the Staff of Law reach into Andelain and attack Covenant through his boots? A long time ago I took a short cut through a field on my way home and stepped on a dead cat. It was yuuuuuuuuuk!!!! That's always been how I imagine what Covenant felt when Drool zapped him with the Staff - but many times worst.

This image (which I found by Googling the word 'hell') is pretty much how I imagined the Ritual of Desecration:



But with more asteroids.

I agree with those that imagine a nuclear holocaust. A radioactive firestorm that would take many centuries for the Land to recover from. Given the time period that SRD wrote the First Chronicles the threat of nuclear war was ever present.

But that's just what I imagine.

Some clues from the text. I posted these in another thread, but they are apropos here.

In Lord Foul's Bane was wrote:
Under the spell of her voice, and the pressure of his vertigo, he had a momentary vision of what the Land must have looked like after Kevin had unleashed the Ritual of Desecration. Behind the luminous morning, he saw hills ripped barren, soil blasted, rank water trickling through vile fens in the riverbed, and over it all a thick gloom of silence - no birds, no insects, no animals, no people, nothing living to raise one leaf or hum or growl or finger against the damage.

In The Power That Preserves was wrote:
Without transition, he found himself on Kevin's Watch. He stood on the stone platform like a titan, and with his malefic band he alone levied a new Ritual of Desecration upon the Land. All health withered before him. Great Gilden trees splintered and broke. Flowers died. Aliantha grew barren and became dust. Soil turned to sand. Rivers ran dry. Stonedowns and Woodhelvens were overthrown. Starvation and homelessness slew every shape of life that walked upon the earth. He was the Lord of a ruin more absolute than any other, a desolation utterly irreparable.

Nice dig, wayfriend! Sounds very Sunbane-ish to me, which stands to reason.

The pic from my earlier post has been erased from existence, but I discovered this recently! I have NO IDEA when I drew this, but it was tucked safely away within my precious documents. Here's a snapshot:
(you get ONE GUESS as to which Trek movie inspired this Wink )
