Achamian posted 02 Apr 2007, 23:04 in The Great Ordeal [supposed]Achamian by Moigle90, Commoner

In twenty years Achamians going to be pretty old, at least sixty (I always thought of him being around 40) . And in those days (by those days i mean the middle ages which is pretty much where the threeseas are technology-wise.) thats pretty old. Plus it calls his goal of seeking the Dunyain, a "mad" quest. So i kindof picture him as this crazy old man. Its sorta sad though because he was my favorite character and basically was screwed (can i say that?) over in Prince of Nothing. I really want him to get his revenge... or something. He deserves it. view post

and even if he does find ishual, what then? What would the dunyain do with him? probably kill him? Maybe he tells them how he knows kellhus or warns them of the apocalypse. But even still, i think they'd kill him on the spot. If they would commit suicide just for recieving dreams from moenghus because he was tainted by the outside world. What would they do with a real stranger? view post

I agree with buckethead. The Dunyain don't even believe in the consult or anything supernatural at all (i think). In the prologue of Darkness when Kellhus is with Leweth, it says that Kellhus thinks of the apocalypse as a legend or a myth just like the rest of Leweth's beliefs in demons and spirits view post

Yeah, you don't need lengthy explanations just throw some details in here and there as they become relevant to the story. And add some in dialogue. Plus I'm sure theres at least one character in your story that isnt privy to every aspect of the world's metaphysics. I'm not saying you need to create a character completely ignorant, but hey not everyone's going to know everything? I guess what I'm saying is I'd use a combination What [i:ppehz3um]is[/i:ppehz3um] your metaphysics, by the way? view post

About the first part, I think people don't react negatively to how Kellhus "knows" them is because he knows exactly how to respond and what to say to move them, to make them feel better etc. Also I think people need to view themselves as unique because on some level we see the pettyness (word?) and ignorance in how others act and think and say to ourselves I'm not like that. So we tell ourselves we're different. And when someone comes along and claims to understand us, that kind of knocks us off that pedestal of superiority that we've created in our heads. I don't know. It's as if we'd rather be miserable and misunderstood for being more than everyone else than be understood and be just like the rest. view post
