We've gone off topic, but Cnaiur mentioned that his trinket was among a gift from the No-god to his people (this makes sense if the chorae originated from the Inchoroi and the rogue Non-men). Quite possibly, the Scylvendi probably possessed a lot of trinkets. They had never been defeated on the field and had 1000's of years history of looting and pillaging. After Kiyuth of course all those trinkets wold now be in the hands of the Nansur.[/quote:2xnbe1ik]

Well I suspect that after they joined the No-God they were given a second batch of Chorae. The Chorae they had before (along with the Chorae all the other nations have) were given to men a long time before that. Actually the surviving Inchoroi, after they'd been defeated by the Nonmen, somehow contacted the five tribes while they were still in Eanna. They gave them the Chorae and knowledge on how to break the Gates of Earwa. This started the migration described in the Tusk and the Cuno-Halaroi Wars (Halaroi is the Nonman name for Men) and the near-obliteration of the Nonmen. So you see, the Inchoroi actually almost succeeded in defeating the Nonmen through surrogates. It's ironic that 2000 years later they attempted to wipe out Men as well. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> You can't trust the bastards . . .

At any rate it would be interesting to know if this second batch of Chorae the Scylvendi received was some sort of remnant from the Cuno-Inchoroi Wars, or if they still know how to make them. It'd be very awkward for men to fight a Consult who could rain showers of Chorae on any battlefield . . .

As to numbers and current location of Scylvendi Chorae your guess is as good as mine . . .

A more important question would be: What and where is the Heron Spear? It was last seen in Cenei, and the Scylvendi sacked that city. So I guess it could be either destroyed or hanging in some chieftain's yaksh as a useless trophy . . . I get the impression the thing could still play some role, since it knocked out the No-God in Round One. view post
