Anasurimbors as high councillors posted 10 August 2005 in Author Q & AAnasurimbors as high councillors by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

Scott, I was wondering, do you feel either of the two brilliant Anasurimbors would make good advisors, good councillors to a King? It's a bit of an odd question I guess but one that popped into my mind anyway. Could for instance Moenghus be the wise councillor behind the King, or do thei personal characteristics and upbringing make them unfit (or lacking in wisdom)?


As I think has already come up, the first question would be one of why any Dunyain would ever put their intellect at the disposal of another's intent. I think the differences in intelligence are such that it would simply be impossible for a Dunyain to be anything other than a de facto regent, though he might pose as an advisor. We are literally like children to them - the way we will undoubtedly be to some artificial intelligence some day. Once the differences in intellectual ability become too great, then the relationship simply HAS to become manipulative. view post
