posted 27 Dec 2005, 05:12 in The Warrior ProphetDoes Akka waver?Where was he at the End? by stacius, Commoner

If I may jump in. There's some issues that don't make sense...If things are so desperate that he wouldn't attack the Scarlet Spires, why doesn't Akka call for help from the Mandate? Secondly, with something a big as a Holy War, why would the Mandate send only ONE spy? How would they know that Akka wouldn't get killed, either by the Consult or the Fanim? An army of over 250,000 men, they send one guy? view post

Esmi and Kellhus thought Akka was dead, but Zin the only one who actually got off his ass and LOOKED FOR HIM! That just doesn't seem right to me...Look how Akka treats Zin after they escape...he kind of shrugs off the fact that Zin sacrificed everything for him...even taking risks by acting as a go-between for Akka and Proyas and offering him a seat in his camp. Yet, the minute Akka gets back, he starts making arguments to save Kellhus. Zin got screwed. view post

What if the previous Grandmaster of the Scarlet Spires was a skin spy? Could that be the reason the Cishaurum took him out? But if that was the case, wouldn't it be just as easy for the Cishaurum to sent a mission to the Mandate with proof of the Consult and ask for help? view post

Perhaps you're right, I mean I undestand that this is a fantasy novel and that plots need to be driven a certain way, but look at it from the other end. The Shiriah knows who Akka is and The Holy War has been in the field for months...everyone knows where they're going. You're in charge of a School and they tell you that you're ancient enemy is among the army. Then you don't hear from your guy for weeks...So you just kick back?! I think Akka did a pretty poor job of keeping a low profile. I mean everyone seems to know who he is and why he's there. His involvement with Kellhus would mean that lots of people would know who he is. And don't you think someone would've survived to tell the tale of how a Mandate Schoolman laid waste to the Scarlet Spires base? Anyway... view post
