Big questions. Since all this does come back to haunt the narrative, I'll try to keep my questions short and sweet. 1) The Inchoroi come from the Void, not from the Outside - for some reason it never dawned on me that people would think otherwise, though it seems clear enough to me now. 2) Let me just give you some puzzle pieces, if only to whet your appetite for AE. Everything in Earwa universe is intrincally, objectively, [i:2hzhzc6l]moral[/i:2hzhzc6l] (it is a fantasy world). And there are very real consequences for the kind of life anyone leads, whether they think themselves innocent or not. This makes 'saving one's soul' a very real dilemma, with very real motivational power. I should say that I'm personally reluctant to clarify the metaphysics too much, since for some reason it feels more realistic to have it all be fuzzy (real world supernatural metaphysical schemes are certainly replete with contradictions and ambiguities) and it seems - to me, anyway - that it detracts from the ambience I'm trying to conjure. It's almost as though the 'out there' needs to remain mysterious for the profundity the here and now to ring true. Does anyone else get that feeling? view post
