Sorry about the delay, WL. I started the first sentence of this response twice only to be terminally interrupted.[/quote:3q7u2kvz]

Oh I don't mind, as long as I get my answers, that is . . . <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

The southern Mansions were entirely obliterated.[/quote:3q7u2kvz]

I've been meaning to ask you to clarify the concept of Mansion for some time. So what is a Mansion, a Nonman kingdom, a court, or both?

3) This is something I've toyed with for years, but I've yet to come up with anything I'm happy with. It's what I call a 'high pressure' detail. It needs to be something uncommon, evocative, and threatening... An animal totem just won't do it.[/quote:3q7u2kvz]

Can't wait to see what you finally decide on! <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Also, while I'm at it, I'd like to know what Cunuroi coats of arms are like. It seems Men use animals on their standards, so what about the Nonmen?

Another interesting thing is the Anasurimbor Nonman heritage (could they have adopted a Nonman-like coat of arms?). Did they know they were descended from a Nonman and what was their attitude toward it? For that matter what did the Nonmen think? Did it give the Anasurimbor a slightly better standing than other monarchs?

Your other questions I must refrain from answering for reasons of National Security.[/quote:3q7u2kvz]

And what am I to make of this? <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

A closing question. Will Moenghus get some airtime in TTT, I mean throughout the book, or will he remain a sort of ubiquitous hidden presence till the very end?

Thanks! view post
