Nerdanel Posted March 11, 2011 Share Posted March 11, 2011 We don't know the limits of the stillbirth phenomenon because if there were any limits they were beyond what the characters in Eärwa could find information on. I think it's quite likely the entire planet was affected. If it wasn't, perhaps the endgame of the Consult was to fortify the passes to Eänna to keep the descendants of the surviving humans out of Eärwa. I would think the Consult would try to think of something more final though.My view that the No-God takes the souls of those who die within its influence is based on the strange happenings in Mengedda, which Achamian explains to Saubon by bringing up the line about the soul that encounters Him (the No-God) passing no further. At the moment the No-God's influence is only really noticeable to people in Mengedda since it's both a topos and the place where he died, making it the place with the shortest metaphysical distance to him. I think he can have influence outside of that area, but it's so weak he can only achieve subtle effects like having a twig discussion with Kellhus.I do think the No-God is intelligent, evil, and aware of things. That's based on how it's referred to in the story and the strange stuff I take to be its machinations. I think Kelmomas's secret voice is the No-God.
