Nilnamesh is Ketyai with a Satyothi admixture, and though it was incorporated into the Ceneian Empire (the famous fortress of Auvangshei, which for denizens of the Three Seas is synonymous with the ends of the world, is actually a Ceneian fortress), it's grip was shortlived and dubious.[/quote:1obuk8yi]

Thanks for the info. Can you tell us in what book will we be seeing something of Nilnamesh, if not of Zeum? I kind of hope it'll be in TTT . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Otherwise, and I cannot emphasize this enough, trees DO NOT have any particular significance to the Nonmen - as I think will become apparent in TTT.

The motif you're picking up on plays a far different roll... <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->[/quote:1obuk8yi]

Well I wasn't 100% sure of linking them to the Nonmen (lots of other explanations) but I did think they were important. It surely brings Yggdrasil of Norse mythology to mind. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> I'm very glad we'll be finding out in TTT and not the upcoming series. Seriously, the wait would kill me . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Can you tell us what numbers did the Nonmen have population-wise before their decline, or at their zenith? Usually when one thinks of long-lived races, one can't not associate them to Tolkien's elves which have really few children and far between. Now that does not necessarily have to be true, and I expect that in Earwa the Nonmen should have had great numbers, perhaps even more than the number of humans. Can you give us any details?

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