Worldhorn & Heron Spear posted 16 February 2006 in Author Q & AWorldhorn & Heron Spear by Mog-Pharau, Peralogue

Perhaps the Heron Spear was the only weapon that could bring down the No-God for mundane (non-sorcerous) reasons. The people of Earwa--Mena and Nonmen alike--seem to have a more or less medieval tech level, even Bronze Age at the time of Mengedda, with the exception of sorcery. If the No-God were immune to sorcery--which the glossary implies, what with the eleven chorae and all--that leaves them with only their swords and bows, which wouldn't seem to do much good against the thing that both you and I saw described. The Inchoroi, on the other hand, had space age weapons, and if the Heron Spear was the weapon of their king, it stands to reason it would be the most powerful. The whole thing reminds me justa little bit of the Gae Bulg. view post
