*Spoilers* Traveller's identity posted 05 April 2009 in The Judging Eye*Spoilers* Traveller's identity by Triskele, Candidate

I think that Kayutas is a possibility. The inner-monologue in the prologue implies a few things. He remarks that the men respond to his call "just like animals."

He also understands The Captain who switches to Ainoni. So the first observation seems a bit Dunyain-esque and then we learn that The Traveller has a facility with languages.

Kayutas while not Dunyain to the extent that Kellhus is, is probably the next best thing. He also points out to Sorweel that languages are effortless to him.

Incidentally, my Firefox is telling me that "traveller" with two l's is wrong and it looks wrong to me, but it has two l's in the text. view post


Dates for the White-Luck Warrior? posted 05 April 2009 in The Judging EyeDates for the White-Luck Warrior? by Triskele, Candidate

Unofficially, I remember hearing around the time that Judging Eye came out that it would hopefully be about a year. I would love to hear if anyone has something more official. view post


The Doomed Ordeal? posted 05 April 2009 in The Judging EyeThe Doomed Ordeal? by Triskele, Candidate

Well one of the biggest questions that we have to ask ourselves is whether or not Kellhus really wants to destroy Golgotterath. I am in the camp that believes that he does but there are plenty of people who think Kellhus is up to something else, maybe even trying to lead the huge host of the Great Ordeal to its destruction. I largely agree though with the OP, it seems like one hell of a "slog" to get that host through that terrain and then still have the battle of all battles still to fight with a very nasty winter around the corner.

What role Ishual and the Dunyain will play in the coming story is one of the things I am most curious about. view post


*Spoilers* Traveller's identity posted 08 April 2009 in The Judging Eye*Spoilers* Traveller's identity by Triskele, Candidate

An interesting theory though I think the Dunyain are still isolated with no major developments since the departure of Kellhus. As far as we know, Kellhus hasn't tried to contact Ishual in any way and I think they are happy as long as no more dreams get sent their way. Of course it's possible that we just don't know what's happened yet.

I do agree that something seems curious about Soma but isn't he Nilnameshi or something not Norsirai? view post


Kellhus vs Whiteluck -<SPOILERS>- posted 10 April 2009 in The Judging EyeKellhus vs Whiteluck -<SPOILERS>- by Triskele, Candidate

Though nothing would surprise me too much, I think Sorweel is the WLW. I think we were given a major hint when after he successfully lies to Kellhus, and then rages on his slave asking him he did to him. Then he learns that the guy used a crazy blood-shot eyes ritual to bless him.

Another hint though is that I think Maithanet says to Esmi "The White-Luck will break against you." This could be a clue that it is going to be a problem in Momemn and not so much on the road with the Great Ordeal. I just don't see why Sorweel would get so much play if he didn't have a major role to play. view post


This board blows. posted 13 April 2009 in The Judging EyeThis board blows. by Triskele, Candidate

Amazingly...Scott's books are only so popular...you should all move over to GRRM's board at asoiaf.westeros.org


In the lit section there is a better discussion of this awesome series. Fandom of Martin is not required. view post


This board blows. posted 22 April 2009 in The Judging EyeThis board blows. by Triskele, Candidate

I feel that I owe an apology. My suggestion that the board "blows" is specifically (and perhaps unfairly) due to slower activity and not to the quality of the posters within.


I ought to have considered how my original post may or may not have attracted new posters.

In short, I have insulted the people I want to hear more from...unwise on my part.

Apologies.

To clarify, the posters on this board are great. I'm frustrated with the lack of activity. I think Bakker is as exciting an author as there is out there today so I'm just miffed at how he is kinda on the fringe and people like Goodkind are selling millions.

This board sucks only because there are not more of you good people. view post


Sarl posted 04 May 2009 in The Judging EyeSarl by Triskele, Candidate

unJon - I think I know you from somewhere...


Besides noting that Scott focuses on Sarl's face a few times (not a bad observation on your part) do you have more evidence?

Aren't most skin spies better fighters than most non-Dunyain humans? Wouldn't Sarl have fucked shit up in Cil-Aujas if we were a skin spy? Or would he not want to in order to hide his identity? view post

Quote: "Harrol":23ofufyw
Also Sarl had a nervous break down and received a weepers scar on his face from Iron Soul. I believe a slash to the face would cause the false face to shift a little.[/quote:23ofufyw]

That's a good point. I feel like Sarl just has too much of a personality. I guess we don't know exactly "who" these skin spies are but I feel like they were pretty bland in PoN. The Thing Called Sarcellus is the one we see the most of and Sarl is just nothing like him. view post


The metaphysics of Eärwa (contd.) posted 12 June 2009 in The Judging EyeThe metaphysics of Eärwa (contd.) by Triskele, Candidate

Great stuff. I like your theory on the Chorae.


I am still so torn on the nature of Kellhus. I think there is ample evidence to support Kellhus as prophet and ample evidence to support Kellhus as false prophet. I also think there's a chance that he's something sort of in between in that perhaps he doesn't actually rewrite any scripture or judgement but that he does have savior aspects. I can't wait to see where it goes. view post
