For the random newbs who might be confused and clicked on the thread. RS Bakker has written two fantasy series, The Prince of Nothing and then continued in the ongoing series, The Aspect Emperor.
His fantasy world is a little bit Dungeons and Dragons, a little bit Dune, a little bit Tolkien and a whole lot of The Crusades and his characters are very archetypal: kungfu swashbuckling monks, barbarians, whores, emperors and sorcerers.
to reiterate my last thought from the previous thread:
I think Moenghus doesn't give a shit about the No God. He's worried about the Inchoroi, in particular I think he's worried about what they brought with them to the world: The Inverse Fire. And the goal of Moenghus and Cishaurim is not to prevent the rise or resurrection of the No-God, otherwise they would ally with the Mandate, rather their goal is to extinguish the Inverse Fire.
in other words, the No God is a great big red herring, a giant shiny nothing that has distracted us all from the true pursuit, throwing the Ring into Mount Doom (or it's inverse, putting out the fire with water).
