Cishaurim magic essentially anagogic?? posted 19 Sep 2005, 23:09 by Scariot, Commoner

I just finished TWP, and one of the things I noticed was the description of the Cishaurim Sorcery. I think I remember during the assault on Caraskand, when the Cishaurim emerge that some of their magic was described as sparrows, which would be an analogy like the anagogic sorcery. Does this mean that the psuke is limited to analogous cants like the anagogic schools? view post

[/quote:vpj1b7va] I don't think so; during the clash between the Cishaurim and the Scarlet Spires, it was the Spires that produced burning sparrows to attack the Cishaurim defending the Citadel of the Dog: [quote:vpj1b7va] Flocks of incandescent sparrows swarmed over the battlement, plummeting into face after howling face. Despite the destruction...[/quote:vpj1b7va] The Psûkhe is a different type of sorcery from the Anagogic; it doesn't seem to be limited to analogies, as its effects are often described as "pure" light. The exact nature of the Psûkhe is still a mystery, though; it's one of the many mysteries I hope will be revealed in TTT. view post

The Psukhe is quite different from Anagogic sorcery. There's actually quite abit about this and other sorcerous topics in TTT. Just a couple of more months! view post

You're Canadian. You drink beer in copious amounts. No way in hell that you're 'dry' ;) view post
