As I said, I'm not Dunyain, but apparently 'H' is. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Those are both excellent points H, and ones which I hadn't thought of.

On the other hand, the Consult now know for certain that Kellhus can detect skin spies. Even if he leaves some alive in the ranks of the Holy War, might the Consult not be suspicious of his motives for doing so? In fact, wouldn't they look for a new, undetectable, way of infiltrating and spying regardless?[/quote:xw73rxzf]

You seem to be following my train of thought pretty well . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

I really don't expect that Kellhus thinks he can find more about the Consult from the skin-spies, just as I don't think the skin-spies will stop trying to eliminate him.

After all, Kellhus has single-handedly wrecked whatever hope the Consult had of smashing the Cishaurim, and they have already marked him for some really painful demise.

The only reason why they won't be quickly eliminated from the Holy War I have already posted upthread, however I suspect that at the very least the Thanes Kellhus has been training will be able to pick up the skin-spies so we might see some captures and interrogations. Kellhus has been observing and mapping their behaviour and I have no doubt he could push the right buttons to make them talk if he can capture them alive.

This is also one of the ways the Great Names can be convinced of the threat the Consult represents . . . view post
