The Destruction of the Dunyain posted 27 April 2005 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Destruction of the Dunyain by White Lord, Subdidact

I'm in agreement with almost everything Andrew wrote. A few comments:

1. The Dunyain are obviously safe for a good while, just as you said, but ultimately they will be found, and what's important is how fast that'll happen: will it be before or after the beginning of the Apocalypse? You obviously see that the location of Ishual, and the mentality of the Dunyain, make them as likely to side with or against the Consult, and the nearby presence of the Nonmen makes for an explosive mix, especially if the Dunyain do in fact join the Nonmen.

2. With regard to sorcery I think it's safe to assume that Moenghus only contacted people he knew before leaving Ishual, and that he chose more than one for simple security/redundancy; I also think that for two-way communication both sides would have to belong to the Few, but for one-way communication I expect all one'd have to do was know the person and the location to send these dreams.

3. Regarding your speculations on the Dunyain having sorcerous potential, all things are possible, but I'd first like to know if there are any more Anasurimbor at Ishual (something Scott has refused to answer <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->) and also how much Anasurimbor blood is in the rest of the Dunyain. I think the Anasurimbor line may be hereditary sorcerers (remember they are descended from a Nonman, and if he was a Quya it could be that every future generation has this ability, or at least a very significant number of descendants unlike other humans). view post
