I submitted this to the GI, but SRD seems to be on vaca (the nerve! get back to work! Big Grin ).

When the Haruchai are describing to Linden Covenant's various 1st chron summonses, they mention all 4, and say only 1 was w/o the SoL - Triock and Foamfollower's summons. Unless I'm missing something, Mhoram's aborted summons also wasn't with the SoL.

Anyone else notice this?

Hmmm, good point that.

I guess I missed all of these "mistakes" everybody keeps mentioning in that first read. Too caught up in FR's awesomeness, I suppose. Hopefully SRD can set some of them straightened out in the GI.

Excellent point, I didn't notice that either.

Mhorams summoning was technically a half-summons, he didnt bring TC all the way in, so that would be 4.5 with the SoL. Now, its well known Haruchai only work with integers, and never real numbers, so he implicitly rounded off the half summons. I think thats in the index somewheres Wink


SoL - Ha! that used to mean $H*T Out of Luck when I was in the service. as in "You are SOL , dude" so I laugh when I see that abbreviation.

I was looking for this in the text - what chapter is it in?

I don't have my book with me right now, but I believe it was after Linden et. al. left Revelstone for Andelain. I'll try to look it up tonight. At some point Linden asks to know more about Covenant's summonses that happened before her experience with him. I think it's Stave that's answering her, and he says TC was summoned 4 times in all, and that one summons - by Triock and Foamfollower - was w/o the SoL b/c their need was so great. I think she was searching for ways to believe she would be able to summon him from the AoT.

There appear to be goofs in the 'What Has Gone Before' section too. I read this last night and thought, there are many incorrect statements.

The only reference I could find is in Part 2, Chapter 10. Stave is explaining why people go back when their summoner dies - or why in some cases they remain in the Land. He says, "So it transpired three times for the ur-Lord, the Unbeliever." And he didn't mention the Staff in the previous text. Could this have been misinterpreted as all summons with the Staff?

Ah. I found it. It's when they are in the Hall of Gifts:

Quote:
After a few steps, she asked, still indirectly, “How many times was Covenant summoned to the Land? I mean, before he and I came here together?”

“Four of which the Bloodguard had knowledge,” answered Stave.

“Who summoned him?”

Her companion had apparently accepted her fragmented state. He replied without hesitation, “The first summoning was performed by the Cavewight Drool Rockworm at Corruption’s bidding. The second, by High Lord Elena. The third, by High Lord Mhoram. In each such call, the necessary power was drawn from the Staff of Law. But the fourth was accomplished by the Giant Saltheart Foamfollower and the Stonedownor Triock, enabled only by their own desperation, and by a rod of lomillialor, of High Wood, gifted to Triock by High Lord Mhoram.”


Yes - it was a minor mistake. But I'm surprised we didn't catch it sooner - it's not as hidden as the Caer Caveral one (which I looked right at and didn't see).

I think I spotted another error. There's some point during FR where someone (I can't remember who) says that anyone lower than Lord Foul in the power hierarchy (i.e., a Raver) could not stand the test of truth given by orcrest or lomillialor (I'd love it if someone could find this passage). But this isn't true: in PTP, the Raver that occupies Yeurquin's body is able to grip the lomillialor without being burned alive.

But that Raver was jacked up on Ill-Earth "juice" though.
And Elena was using the SoL to power them up too, maybe not the Ravers directly, but the one attacking Revelstone certainly felt the SoL's support go away when TC destroyed it.

That Raver did not have a piece of the Illearth Stone. It's true that the Staff of Law was "at their backs", but I don't see how the SOL could enhance a Raver's ability to resist the test of truth. It seems like the reverse would be true.

(Man, I wish I had my books with me at work because my memory is so poor)
I though that Raver, though he didn't have a fragment true, still had a green glow or ooze or something green like he was being funneled IE power.

This bears repeating - Romeo, you have a tough and thankless job.

I keep saying - the genius is his, and the goofs are mine. Smile

Thankless?! Surely not! Sea? Jenn? Can you see any way that this word could possibly apply? (even when we're beating ourselves up for missing stupid little things like this?) Smile

Regarding the Test of Truth - I believe there's more involved than just grabbing and holding the orcrest or lomilialor. I think the test must be "administered" in some way. I do remember that Jehannum (sp?) fled Flaming Woodhelven <grin> before they could give him the test (with the Lominator 2000). Smile They said at the time that the test works as long as the tested does not exceed the testor. Foul would fall into this category - the Ravers might be tough, but still wouldn't "exceed" a heer.

You could also write it off to the Haruchai's interpretation of a summoning. Perhaps they only count actual successes rather than attempts.

They didn't know about Mhoram's summoning perhaps... all the bloodguard left Revelstone before it occurred.

But they at least suspected that it could not have been done with the Staff of Law, since that was lost with Elena (when they were still around).

One can rescure this apparent goof by assuming that while Mhoram did not have the Staff of Law he still tapped into its power to perform the 3rd summoning. There is a hint in the 2nd Chronicles during the Soothtell that once the Staff was destroyed the summoning rite had to change radically. In the 1st Chronicles someone just reaches out and grabs TC and brings him to the Land. In the 2nd (and now also in the 3rd) there's pain and bloodshed involved in the real world during the summoning.

ok, well maybe another goof.

have got to approx page 170 in FR.

when Linden goes to see TC and J in revelstone she notices that they have a fire set and thinks that they are human enough to feel the cold. Beg pardon but TC is DEAD, he will not feel the cold

or another thought, is this really TC. have got to page 170 I suspect not

anyway IMHO, this is an inept continuation of the TC series and maybe I have just lined SRD's pockets with some hard earned cash.

regards

Alan

TC told Bannor and Fomfollower about it after the crisis at the Colossus, before they separated. Bannor criticized him for taking the time to rescue the girl in his own world, while Foamfollower approved of his action. Bannor must have presumably survived to return to the Haruchai and share his stories there since the Haruchai are aware of the events at the Colossus.
