The Mandate Skin-Spy posted 21 February 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Mandate Skin-Spy by anor277, Didact

Just to weigh in on the subject of the Mandate skin spy (whose presence in my opinion is an anomaly as a plot device), un-Simas could easily have learned the Gnosis from not only the Inchoroi brothers but also Merkeritrig or the undead Shauriatis - all of whom we assume are leading members of the Consult and there might be other members we don't know about. It would take little deception for a skin spy to participate in the Mandate dreams using modified cants of calling. And given the skin spies possible instructors (e.g. Shauriatis) I don't think this is unreasonable.

Of course, given what we read in the first two books, a skin spy should not be able to pose as a sorceror anyway; even in the novel this skin spy is represented as a rarity among rarities, and his inclusion was very disappopinting. view post
