What if Kellhus was one of us? posted 26 June 2008 in General DiscusssionWhat if Kellhus was one of us? by Callan S., Auditor

Aye, I was going to say that. But keep in mind, their mastery of circumstance isn't complete - that's why Kellhus leaves the monastary, because circumstances still control the Dunyain. Well, at the very least his dad thought mastery of magic was the next shortest step in mastering all circumstance, ergo, all circumstance is not yet mastered. Eventually circumstance makes one or more enter into the world - circumstance deciding their mission.

What creeps me out is that the idea of such a monastary is kind of not terribly out of the ordinary. Wartorn refugees with their emotions torn from them make withdrawal from emotion part of their goals and manage to find a hiding spot. They, in their cold way, are able to set up a rigid breeding program as well. The set themselves to their task for a great deal of time, without the deviations that emotions create.

Weve had enough wars in enough places over enough millenia that...it just doesn't seem very epic fantasy.

In a long, drawn out way, it could be taken as a moral as to why you should avoid war - you might end up making Dunyain. view post
