A few questions . . . posted 28 March 2005 in Author Q & AA few questions . . . by White Lord, Subdidact

I even have a historical atlas I want to put up.[/quote:2iriy83o]

That's a great idea and I can't wait to see it.
Will the maps be similar to the ones on the site now? Did you consider improving them? Because I actually have a few gripes about these maps . . . For one there's no way to gauge distances; there are no roadways and there are no borders! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> Now I know I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, so what bugs me may not be an issue with others, but it drives me nuts not to be able to visualize the exact sizes of the various nations. Using different colours for stuff like deserts, plains mountains etc. would also help.

There are things from the time of the Tusk I do want to flesh out, such as the conflict between the Old Prophets and the Shamans, the question of how the surviving Inchoroi brought Chorae, the 'Tears of God' to the Five Tribes before the Breaking of the Gates, and the Cuno-Halaroi Wars (Halaroi is the Nonman name for Men). Stuff like that.[/quote:2iriy83o]

Interesting stuff . . . About these "Gates" . . . What exactly are they? I expect you mean fortified passes across the Kayarsus. This also begs the question: is the Kayarsus even natural. I mean, this is a huge mountain range that effectively runs the length of Earwa and seals it from the rest of the continent like a Wall of China analogue (very convenient for the Nonmen). Can such mountains be raised by sorcery? Were/are the Quya capable of such things?

Nymerik is actually the King of Aorsi, and kinsman to Celmomas (my office is an absolute disaster and I can't find the chronicles, but Kuniuri, Aorsi, and Sheneor were once a single kingdom which was divided among three sons - all Anasurimbor). As for Celmomas's son, you actually learn a fair bit about him in TTT.[/quote:2iriy83o]

Was this kingdom that was divided Umerau? Because you say the Anasurimbor were the third dynasty to rule Kuniuri but the timeline would not support it. It's much more plausible that they were the third royal house of Umerau.

Also a closing question. You said you'd not say anything specific about Zeum, still I'm trying this one . . . Is there any contact between Zeum and Injor-Niyas, specifically by sea? The Nonman kingdom is effectively encircled by hostiles by land so the only commerce avenues they have left lead to Zeum.

Thanks! view post
