Help finding post on afterlife posted 17 Mar 2006, 09:03 by zarathustra, Peralogue

I am trying to find a post where Scott talks about different afterlife beliefs in the Three Seas particularly the Scylvendi. However I am not having much luck finding it. Can anyone help? thanks view post

I forget what the thread was called. I know the Inrithi/Kuniuri (the cults that predate Inrithiism) believe there are three ontions: 1)Salvation, 2)Damnation, and 3)Oblivion. For 1 to occur you either have to merit the reward/intercession being granted by one of the Gods (check the glossary of TTT to see which grant salvation as a reward for serving them) or have your Ancestors interced on your behalf which is why the Inrithi pray to their Ancestors as well as the Gods. Damnation of course happens when your bad, or are a Sorceror and so your Soul when it passes to the Outside gets to be a chew toy for nasty Agencies. Oblivion occurs if you were good enough for Salvation and not bad enough for Damnation... your Soul just fades away. The Scylvendi only believe in Oblivion if I recall correctly because Lokung is dead. I can't remember what the Fanim believe. They only believe in the Solitary God so it is probable that they believe in salvation and damnation depending on your acts in life. view post

Good summarization by EE, still I'll post the link in case (found with a simple use of the Search function) : ... redemption It seems it's not simply an Inrithi belief that there are three possibilities after death, it's a reality in Eärwa. The Scylvendi simply believe that since Lokung is dead, neither Damnation nor Salvation are possible anymore. I'm not so sure Lokung could grant these choices to them anyway,seeing as he's not supposed to be a God. view post

Thanks for that link. [quote="Scott":rwbzdnen]And to answer your question, Maltaran, yes, Lokung is indeed the No-God - though this is not necessarily how the Scylvendi themselves see things.[/quote:rwbzdnen] I find this interesting. If Scott can come up with a completely plausible motivation for the Inchoroi, I can't wait to see what he does for why the Scylvendi fought for the no-god. view post

Hmm i thought there was a reason in the book that said why the Scylendi fought for the No-God like a convo between Kellhus and Cnaiur. view post
