LOL Oh, I get the monopolising thing, but hell, there's few enough playing anyway. And of course, it's possible that we could be demotivating people by doing so, since they know somebody else knows already.

(Not saying this is the case, just a possibility...not bothered about this at all for the record, just having some fun at your expense...you carry on having your own fun by all means. Smile)

Anyway, the only thing off-hand I can think of is that it was unclear / ambiguous / whatever, but not sure that's what IS is looking for...

Of course I'll answer this one eventually if no one else does, but it's all just a question of timing. Wink

It's all good, because I sure don't want to fall into the trap of taking myself TOO seriously! Razz King

If I remember correctly it was frustrating for couple reasons.

1. It did not show the details of how Joyse became king just actions he completed. - But the Adept at time of augury needed to know how was he able to get to the point of being able to perform those actions and that was not shown.

2. It was also frustrating retrospectively. Meaning it showed he became king after all the actions shown in augury when the truth was he was king during the time of all the actions. Thus, they are left wondering how can it show kingdom later, when we see he is king now?

That is correct!
Big Wave Party Time

The specific example given was the implication that he had become king after a large hole had been blasted into the side of Orison.

I think the interpretation we can draw from this is that the Augury didn't show him simply becoming King of Mordant, but rather the process of him utterly defeating Mordant's enemies and evil imagers, while uniting the three kingdoms.

Your question.

Thanks IS!

I take the same interpretation as you about the sequencing.


I know this question is really easy - but this is going to be busy work week so to keep game moving along....

Terisa named something that took the people around her by surprise when they were spying on Prince Kragan and Nyle - what did she name?

Also what did she remind them she knew from her prior life, but in her prior life it was called a different name?

My only fear is I hope I am not being too vague ...but trying to avoid making it even more obvious.

That's technically two completely different questions.

As usual, I'm going to fly the coop until someone sees fit to hop on with an answer.

I was originally going to make it one question but I could not figure out how to make my question not confusing. So I opted to break into two pieces. Anyone (like yourself) that knows the answer I am hoping understands the connection between the two answers.

Congratulations on winning the question, Sam! I believe I know the first part, but am just going to have to take a wild guess on that second part!

When they were spying on Prince Kragan and Nyle - what did Terisa name to Geraden, Ribuld, and Argus?
I recall she was talking about carrier pigeons.

"Also what did she remind them she knew from her prior life, but in her prior life it was called a different name?"
Horses? Question

Correct on first answer - carrier pigeons. But incorrect on second question.

IS gave big hint in his 1/28 post. So I will repeat it here by saying I am hopping on to another KW thread now...

Actually, in that scene, I don't think she referenced what you're looking for as an answer (I didn't associate the question with the scene - that's why I felt they were really separate questions) but she absolutely did bring up the horses (saying something to the effect of "We have horses, too, I just never rode one").

That's right, thank you IS, it's not horses that called by another name. It's just that I associated that scene with Terisa mentioning carrier pigeons and then mentioning horses (as a defense against Ribuld's suspicion of her being an Alend spy because she knew about carrier pigeons).

I think, thanks to your hints and Sam's , that I will be ready to answer Sam's question on my next post!

Desperate times of answering hard questions sometimes call for desperate measures of answering, Avatar! Ride em Cowboy Wink


[All of which is just an excuse that I finally got stumped on a Mordant's Need question! Good job, Sam!]



I think the answer is: checkers, which in the world of Mordant is known as "hop-board".

Correct!!! Good job!!!! Party Time You Rock

And my profoundest apologies if she doesn't mention checkers in that scene! I lost my book Mirror of Her Dreams and cannot verify one way or another Sad I could have swore that she mentioned it shortly after carrier pigeons as a way of defense against suspicions that she was in allegiance with Price Kragan. So if her checkers/hop board defense is used somewhere else I am properly sorry and will slink away into embarrassment forever Cool Laughing

But in any case Cord Hurn is correct on both answers no matter how much I screwed up Embarassed Big Grin

Your question CH!!

Thank you, Sam!! And please feel free to drop in and post whenever you like, and as much as you like, as your participation is greatly appreciated!

Okay, so my question is:

When Artagel faints due to inhaling the noxious smoke of burned-up giant cockroaches, Terisa and Geraden bring Havelock to examine him. Havelock sees Artagel is alive and unconscious, but won't treat Artagel where they find him lying. Why not?
