Well done, Skyweir!

(By the way, was the detail that I got wrong the mention of using two curved glasses? On reflection (pun intended) I think you would have to translate a flat glass through a curved glass in order to travel within the same world without going mad. A curved glass made in Mordant will never show an image of Mordant).

Correct. Of course, the answer I would have been looking for was simply that Barsonage said the congery had dedicated themselves to discovering how Gart (and friends) were able to translate themselves in and out of Orison without going mad. You became "wrong" by adding the bit about the mirrors. (It wasn't how they "used flat mirrors" without going mad, or anything about dual translation. Just how they managed to translate in and out without going mad.)

Only then did Eremis put forth the mirror within a mirror suggestion, but leaving out the little detail of the special oxidate treatment.


Quite right, Sanity, and I thank you for helping me answer Jack's question while I've been busy!

Hunchback Jack, you are correct that it takes two mirrors, a flat glass translated into a curved glass (made with a special oxidate, as IrrationalSanity states), to allow people in the world of Mordant to be translated elsewhere in that world without going mad. But, that is Master Ermeis' offered solution to the problem Master Barsonage is having the Congery research, not the challenge itself. The challenge is how people can be translated in and out of Orison without going mad, and that was basically what I was looking for.

Basically, HJ, I was asking what does Master Barsonage tell Master Eremis, and you responded with what Master Eremis tells Master Barsonage.

In the thirty-seventh chapter of A Man Rides Through, entitled "Poised For Victory", was wrote:
remis grinned around the rim of his goblet. This was better than he had anticipated, more fun. He liked opponents who were capable of surprises. He had grown almost fond of King Joyse. Even Lebbick had his good side. Geraden was virtually likeable. And as for Terisa--

That made their destruction especially exciting.

Unite the Masters, was that it? Then they would have to be un-united.

He twirled his goblet in his long fingers. "Thank you, Master Barsonage," he said happily. "I understand you now.

"What work is the Congery doing with its rediscovered purpose?"

Again the mediator shrugged. A trickle of water ran out of his chest hair across his belly. It will not surprise you. We labor to learn how it is that men such as the High King's Monomach, who is no Imager, and Master Gilbur, whose talents are known to us, can be translated in and out of Orison at no cost to their sanity. Translation through flat glass drives men mad. That has been true since the dawn of Imagery. Why, then, are our enemies not destroyed by the very weapons they use against us?"


We labor to learn how it is that men such as the High King's Monomach, who is no Imager, and Master Gilbur, whose talents are known to us, can be translated in and out of Orison at no cost to their sanity. I would have accepted "how the enemies of Mordant can translate themselves in and out of Orison without going mad", as that's the gist of what Master Barsonage tells Master Eremis that the Congery is working on.

How to translate through flat glass without losing ones sanity?

Specifically in and out of Orison 🤔

But we already posited this answer. 🤔


YOU HAVE IT, SKYWEIR! Hunchback Jack's answer only lacked Master Barsonage's concern about these appearances out of thin air occuring "in and out of Orison", which is how he framed it as a matter of defense to Eremis.

Nana Party Party Time Nana Party


It's your trivia question, Skyweir! Big Grin

I have sent Skyweir a Private Message, letting her know that she still has control of the MN Trivia question, having answered the last question correctly.

Sky has asked me if I will ask the next Mordant's Need Trivia question, so here it is:

What did Terisa say to Myste upon their first meeting, that made Myste want to meet with her again, and become her friend?
