  1. Bakker's The Greart Ordeal IV (spoilers): Demanding a Disputation

    Bakker's god fractured god might just him being sly - God is a self-moving soul - the unmoved mover - if God were fractured it was not because Nonmen moved in opposition to God's will, but rather that they were the mechanism through which God fractured Itself.

    As Calibander posted in the feedback thread, TUC's page on Amazon is up and, imo, there's some major spoilers there (in that I was upset that I read the synopsis, rip), though your mileage may vary.

    Eh, while everything within that synopsis is within the things that have been speculated territory, confirming them actually puts it within major spoilers - especially the line That's a MAJOR spoiler.

    Sweet jesus, Aurax is just going to be Dr. Frank N. Furter, isn't he? Not much of a man by the light of day/by night one hell of a lover (presumably as the rest of his kin). Making a man with blond hair and a tan (he can after all). He can even descend upon our protagonists Janet/Brad (Akka/Mimara) on the elevator on which Shae had his discussion with Nau-Cauyuti.

    Now this is a good quote.

    I was, but I misread or misinterpreted EAMD as a serious reply >_>. You've talked about writing an introductory prequel type thing to ease readers in - have you thought about the First Apocalypse or the period when the Consult openly operated in the Three Seas? The latter especially interests me, since I can't imagine how or what the Consult did in that period.
  7. Great Ordeal Feedback

    Hmm... because we confuse what comes after with what comes before? So, unlike Morlocks, Men came from Nonmen? Yet, the Ihrimsu lines that Akka translates in TJE from Cleric to the statue of Cujara Cinmoi hardly look non-human, in fact, they look like they're derived from an Indo-European language.

    Man, I don't visit for a few days and this happens. I enjoyed the book, the Ishterebinth portions were my favorite as it was most everyone else's. A few questions: Why didn't Kellhus replicate or duplicate the Non-man flying chariot for the Ordeal? Wouldn't they (or I suppose something resembling a miniature version of the Raft he uses to assault Dagliash) offer protection and mobility to his sorcerers? And in regards to Kellhus and the nuke - all souls within the universe end up in the Outside, yes? To what degree is memory preserved? Could Kellhus have interrogated nuclear scientists in the Outside? What exactly did the Eannans think was going on during the first Apocalypse? The Jekkhi invade Earwa after the Apocalypse, so Eanna is/was definitely inhabited. Was there enough communication over the Kayarsus for them to grasp the situation? How is that the Inverse Fire actually interfaces with the Outside without the usage of magic, given the Inchoroi's ignorance of magic prior to arriving on Earwa? How did the Inchoroi stumble onto it? And what sort of screen is it being displayed on - does it have greater color fidelity than modern LED monitors? The mechanics of Wutteat's undeath was that he (it?) was so damned that he had become a living topos, right? If so, why does Shaeonanra require such an elaborate design to keep his soul from the Outside? Why couldn't he become undead like Wutteat? And finally. are the Nonmen Morlocks?
  9. Bakker XLV: Optimal Tip-to-Tip Damnation (no TGO Spoilers)

    Someone who owns all those books in hardcover selling them is a bit weird. I mean, given the sales on the books, it's quite possibly someone here or on the Second Apocalypse forum.
  10. Bakker's The Greart Ordeal IV (spoilers): Demanding a Disputation

    I find it interesting that Nin'ciljiras and presumably his grandfather adopted the Inchoroi/Consult's ideology whereas the initial alliance was one formulated in terms of revenge against Cujara Cinmoi. The Viroi turned against Nin'janjin, but later Nil'Giccas condemned them to death or exile, and Nin'ciljiras was presumably one of these - so was Nin'ciljiras one of those Viroi who switched sides at Pir Pahal, later to be condemned? If so, what was Nil'giccas' motivation in condemning the surviving Viroi? And when did an alliance of convenience between the Inchies/Consult and Nin'janjin's line become one of shared ideology?

  13. Bakker's The Greart Ordeal IV (spoilers): Demanding a Disputation

    I think it's unclear. Tsonos and Imimorul are definitely related, since Nin'ciljiras says something like "I am the last of the line of Tsonos, only I bear the blood of Imimorul." But they could be the same person or two different ones.

    Not only that, before he stumbles upon them having sex, Serwa and Moe try to tell him they're not related but Sorweel ignores it, despite being made aware of it earlier by the Zeumi prince.

    mmm, I'm gonna have to see the math behind that, while there wouldn't be any alpha or beta particles or other radioactive isotopes dispersed, I imagine an antimatter bomb would release a ton of gamma rays
