[quote:3jutgovy]The No-God, judging from the passages in TWP, does _not_ know himself. He can't even see his external form, much less the world inside himself. [/quote:3jutgovy] This would also explain why he speaks through the mouths of the Sranc (which is really creepy by the way). view post

It seems to me like Maithanet is in league with the Consult. We know the Consult and the Cishaurum are at war. In one part (I can't remember which book, probably the Warrior Prophet) the Synthese/Old Father punishes Sarcellus for almost "losing the Holy War." I think the Consult must have orchestrated the Holy War to destroy the Cishaurum. I think "Moe" may have summoned Kellhus to take control of the Holy War and use it against the Consult instead. As for why the Consult and Cishaurum are at war, my theory is that Moe discovered the skin spies (like Kellhus did) realizing that he couldn't read their emotions and found out enough about the Consult that they considered him a threat. view post

I thought the movies were very well done. Not even close to as good as the books of course, but I really didn't expect them to be. There were some things that I hated though: The love story between Aaragorn and Arwin. It was implied in the books, but I feel like it was just added in for the sake of having a love story. Every movie needs a love story right? Legolas... He's just too over the top in the movies. He's like Superman. I mean, he slides down the stairs on a shield while killing several orcs and then flips the shield up to impale another one. I HATED that part. I also disliked the part where he kills the Oliphant, although it was somewhat redeemed by Gimli's comment. (That still only counts as one!). which brings me to my next gripe. Gimli... Gimli was interesting in the books. In the movie he's shoved to the side and used as comedy relief. Most of his jokes are quite funny. But I hate how they took a great character and turned it into the "warrior who's not quite as good as the elf, and is also kind of fat and gets tired easily." The rest of the characters were awesome though. I especially liked Gandalf. One of my favourite scenes is the duel between him and Saruman. I like how instead of flinging fireballs and things they are flinging each other. Magic doesn't have to be flashy. view post
