Oh definitly, I completely agree, there is always alot of crossover between alot of series. I just wanted to stress that the symbology/methodology so to speak of Epic Fantasy is more at the forefront of PON as opposed to it's SF elements. And I meant no insult towards the FF comparisons (although FF was never my thing <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> ) just pointing out that they are more hmmm superficial as in, on the outside they are similar but once you delve deeper the differences appearing make them more and more different. Hmm I know that came out weird but I think you know what I mean. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->[/quote:tvu08wbh]
Before I came back to the boards in January, I tried to make everything fit in an only fantasy world so it's not like I'm trying to SF it up. Since I came and have read some Q and A and yours and others posts I see that it has some SF stuff in it; I'm not exactly pleased but it's not my story either.

Anyway, In regards to the Womb-Plague here's a direct quote with link to some pertinent info:
Regarding biological warfare, the suggestion is that the Inchoroi have long ago ceased understanding their own technology. This is a function of their moribund state as well as their immortality. The idea is that they've inherited an arsenal from their past, much of it damaged, and that those genomic weapons they do get off the ground, are the result of centuries of blind tinkering, cannibalizing, and scrounging. The Womb-Plague (see the Cuno-Inchoroi Wars in TTT), for instance, is an example of an ad hoc microbial weapon.

And so, granting immunity to his followers does not seem plausible since at the point when the No-God was created it wasn't a bunch of original Inchoroi scientists it was the Mangaecca who wouldn't know the intricacies(correct me if wrong). Also, how would a biological weapon selectively attack thoses with souls... this is why i dont like fantasy trying to be SF. Anyway, explanation will come forth I'm sure.

What the No-God's power always seemed to me was passive; as soon as he was 'birthed' onto Earwa then the way into Earwa from the 'Outside' was closed off from others, although it seems it was an actually plague.(again correct if wrong) E.g. babies.

And what of the Scylvendi, were they also barren during the Apocalypse, and would it have made sense for them to fight for the No-God under those circumstances? Was this mentioned anywhere in TTT?
I'd think it wouldn't matter to the Scylvendi because they were fighting FOR THEIR GOD. lawl. Anyway, that brings to mind the question of when the Scylvendi actually started to think of Mog-Pharau as their god. I dont remeber hearing anything about timeframe but maybe there was. view post
