As for the Illearth Stone, I like to imagine it was originally a perfect emerald lodestone. Lost during the first Ritual of Desecration. So when Foul found the Stone his jealousy knew no bounds. Channeling all his hatred he corrupted the very heart of the stone - a weapon against all green things growing ... or sumfin like that


It was the greatest bane hidden in the Earth by Foul when he worked at the Creator's side, corrupting his creation. So I don't think it was ever "good" in any way.

I also don't think Foul could corrupt or master the Elohim. I think they would be equal to any power of the Stone. Spoiler:
The fact that Kastenessen's madness was due to his being Appointed by the Elohim themselves seems to support this. If Foul could have created his own Kastenessen by corrupting an Elohim he would have tried it ages ago.
If nothing else it would have amused him.

...wait, are we still using spoilers for LC stuff or did that expire on Jan 1?

I guess still using spoilers. Personally, I am new to the series and have only finished FC. I try to avoid the LC forums to prevent knowing how the series ends before I read the rest of the novels.

Glad I used the spoiler tags then! Smile

Thanks, although I did go ahead and read the spoiler because curiosity got the better of me. Very Happy I haven't gotten far enough into the series to understand how important that is, though.

Anywho, coming again from ignorance for the rest of the series, but I was trying to think of a soul-crushing fate that SRD could use for Elena in the later books. The best I could think of is that she is reincarnated as the Philippine woman with leprosy that Covenant talked about meeting at the leprosarium in Illearth War. A twist to the story could be that, as a result of some strange reality-bending shenanigans, it could turn out that Thomas Covenant himself was the husband who ditched her and left her to her horrible fate at the leprosarium. He was talking about how he'd like to punish the husband for what he did to her (the woman who kept smiling no matter what). It would be horribly ironic if it turned out that he was the husband somehow. She kept smiling partially because she's a little nuts and partially because she knows the husband was Thomas Covenant (her 'Beloved') and loved him no matter what.

You figured it out! No point in reading the books now.
