No, no, I was using it in the 'oops' sense! I truly didn't understand your question. And it's no bother at all, believe me.[/quote:1my59qy3]

Good to hear that! Also glad not to be a bother. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Anyway, maybe I should put the question this way: somewhere in TWP people start seeing disks of golden light around Kellhus's hands (the sign of the prophet; the exact way Inri Sejenus is portrayed in temple mosaics etc.) At first I thought these golden disks weren't real, just the result of Kellhus hypnotizing people to reinforce his position as possible prophet. But at the book's end I thought them really there (unless Kellhus has learned how to hypnotize thousands simultaneously!). So which is it: can we consider Kellhus a real prophet by book's end or is he still playing mind games with the Inrithi?

1) I think I should save this one for the striptease...[/quote:1my59qy3]

2) As with all things political, it's the conflux of perception and entrenched interests that matters. Just look at the Inaugural Celebrations in Washington today. Just look at who is celebrating...[/quote:1my59qy3]

So I guess it was more a case of them doing what was politically expedient than really believing him not to be a noble...

The castes are strictly hereditary in the Three Seas. There would have been somewhat more mobility in the Ancient North, but only because in many ways they retained the 'freeman' tribal structure of their ancestors.[/quote:1my59qy3]

That is the way I thought the system worked too. But I guess we'll see some changes, at least, in the Three Seas when Kellhus is Aspect-Emperor... <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Also reformulating one of my previous questions: you said the Four Nations migrated from Eanna to Earwa, and that a 'Lost Nation' remained behind, on the other side of the Kayarsus.

So I assume at least the Xiuhianni are still living in Eanna. But what about other members of the Four Nations, people who didn't want to migrate to Earwa? Do they still live in Eanna, do they have kingdoms there?

For that matter are there other races of Man, distinct from the five we know about, living anywhere in the world?

Thanks again! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
