i have no idea how it was decorated. But I will make a wild guess just for the fun of it.

Was it decorated with war/fighting type objects? Such things as swords/spears/long knives/etc?

I will tell you how it should have been decorated - as a hospital room full of patient monitoring systems/IVs/gauze/sterile equipment. That man was bleeding or recovering from bleeding most of the first book. Cool Laughing


LOL! It is for Avatar to judge, as it is his question, and I would just be on the fence, and might even be breaking the rules if I were to do more than post a few cloaked clues.

It was decorated with one type of such objects. Very Happy However, there is something about the objects of that type that makes them notable...

And if he gets the point of my clues, he'll easily crack the code...

Hmm I guess I am not very good at clues.

But here goes nothing. Is it more along the lines of knives - possible sheathed knives? The notable part is more used for hunting than fighting per se?

Is it too late to change my answer? I just realized I am pretty sure of the answer now.

Was it decorated by fencing type swords and equipment - fencing outfits and such? My guess is he used a foil.

I f I remember right, it's not merely swords, but specifically broken swords - swords that had "failed him" I think was how it was phrased.

f I'm right, I will cede my right to choose the next question because I can't think of a good one offhand...

"Swords that had failed him" is exactly right.

OK, here goes...I hope this hasn't been asked before, and I hope it's not too easy (or too obscure):

Who would the Tor have wanted to marry his daughter off to (if he had one), and why that person?

Yes on the name, but we still need the Tor's reason why he would pick Ribuld...

Hmmm, was it during the final battle scene?

Anybody got the reason? They can have the question... Razz

I actually like this question, and had to think on it a while, replaying the scene in my head, to get the reason.

I think you are not going for just why he was in such gratitude (but I'll include it just in case: Ribuld was honoring his dignity by helping him prepare for his final battle), but rather why this particular expression of his gratitude - which was (in so many words) to enable him to squander her inheritance.

IrrationalSanity got it - that's exactly the phrase the Tor used.

So the next question is yours!

Once he discovered the truth of his talent, Gereden had one final "unexpected" translation result. What was it, and how did he correct it?
