Some questions regarding Tryse, Cunuroi and Miracles posted 10 Feb 2006, 22:02 by Mithfânion, Didact

Scott, hope you don't mind but I have some more questions after reading the glossary. 1) The glossary mentions the [b:1l8ffia3]Knights of Tryse[/b:1l8ffia3], an order of knights also known as [b:1l8ffia3]"The Knights of the Ur-Throne"[/b:1l8ffia3] whose specific task was defending the "Anasurimbor Dynasty". Is this an institution likely to be re-introduced now? 2)The glossary also mentions The Three Miracles of The Warrior Prophet but then only goes on to name two. Some have already wondered what the third one was. Can you reveal what it was, or is the Third one yet to come? 3) Will we see more of the Nonmen in the two Aspect Emperor books than the (admittedly intriguing) glimpses we had in PoN? 4) Is there anything you can say about their current King, Nin-Ciljiras? He is only mentioned once in the story proper, by Aurang, and that was somewhat derogatory. Is he last in a herediary line of Kings, or are the Nonman Kings chosen? 5) Did the Womb-plague truly eleminate [b:1l8ffia3]all[/b:1l8ffia3] Nonmen women? There have been no Nonmen born ever since, whatsoever? 6) Perhaps this is too much to say for you, but what are the chances of Aspect Emperor bringing us back to the North, to see the ancient cities of Sakarpus and Athrithau, where Kellhus has already established followers ( The Adunyaini)? Discard all coyness I say! ;) view post

Mith, your questions are usually too good! I sometimes think you [i:2qj2oc5p]purposefully[/i:2qj2oc5p] ask questions you know I'll demure on, hoping that you can use subtle clues in my response to triangulate the true answer. :wink: It's a version of the 5th Ammendment paradox, where citing the 5th to avoid incriminating yourself is precisely what incriminates you! view post

Scott, the only recent question I did that with was the one about Cnaiur ;) Is there no bone you can throw me about any of these questions? Otherwise you simply force me to book a flight to the Great White North and relieve you of some AE manuscripts :D view post

It's just that I'm hoping that AE will have hundreds of little 'a-ha' moments, and answering your questions could close down on several of those. This site isn't that big membership-wise, but it literally receives thousands upon thousands of hits. I remember my jaw hit the ground when Jack gave me the statistics last summer. But there's also the issue of 'keeping my possibilities open' - this is particularly the case with one of your questions. Unlike with PoN, I have no prior draft of AE, so in many cases I have far more liberty to create new material and add the odd, surprising wrinkle here and there. And here you come with your ironing board questions! :wink: view post
