Dunyain posted 23 February 2004 in Author Q & ADunyain by Skyfell, Commoner

Well, not quite. The statement was that all the remaining Dunyain *who had been contacted by Moenghus* killed themselves. The point was that everything outside their walls was viewed as flawed, and thus nothing and no one could be allowed in, even if it means the death of one or many Dunyain.

I'm interested in reading more about the the Dunyain's path from 'refugees with an ideology' to 'fanatic isolationists.' They didn't kill the original Anasurimbor, and they seemed expect to be recognized as harmless ("We are Dunyain, child. What reason could you have to fear us?") so at some point they shifted to their 'modern' willingness to kill or die for purity. Maybe I'm reading too much into a few lines (Mr. Author? Cue. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> ) but if I'm not, then whatever the sociological fulcrum point was should be seriously interesting.
