One thing I think is being overlooked is that while the scarlet spires and cishaurim are almost completely destroyed, Kellhus has the support of the mandate, which I would say is worth sacrificing both of the other schools. view post

Personally, I was under the impression that Kellhus had predicted Conphas attacking him at the battle of Shimeh and had Saubon shadowing the army the whole time. Conphas died because he fell straight into the trap. view post

It always seemed like a pretty straight forward twist on a laser gun to me. Not that that's a bad thing considering the superb execution. view post

I dont see how believeing he's some sort of trancendent son of god somehow makes kellhus exempt from going to hell for using people like he's been using them for all three books. I'm personally of the opinion Kellhus is going to turn out to be a badguy, and our only hope is Akka. GO AKKA! view post

I personally had interpreted the final dream of Akka in the thousandfold thought as representitive of what would come to pass, Akka is standing against the Nogod, and Kellhus (anaphaxos), though it looked as though he was standing with him as well, was saying exacly what the nogod was saying, or rather, he will be doing what the nogod wants to do. AKKA FOR TEH WIN! view post

Kellhus, his divinity, and his "good guy" status. posted 01 Mar 2006, 15:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtKellhus, his divinity, and his "good guy" status. by Darlan Laerdon, Commoner

Hi there, newbie and avid Bakker fanboi Darlan here, and I was wondering what everyone thought about Kellhus. I get the impression from some idle snooping around that Kellhus is generally considered the good guy, or hero of the story. Personally, I get the impression that Kellhus will turn out to be the badguy, or at least a not-so-good-after-all guy. My reasons are thusly: 1. Kellhus thinks he is something more than a dunyain, due in large part to the halos about his hands that he and everyone else sees. But looks are more often than not decieving, and, as Kellhus himself proved, just because something looks holy, doesnt mean it is. Kellhus's actions, at least before the circumfixion, definatly were evil things done for selfish reasons, namely his mission to reach Shimeh. The point is, he put on the look of holiness, but inside, he was just a detached user of humanity 2. Kellhus brings war. Kellhus brings murder. Kellhus brings manipulation. Does Kellhus bring healing, does he bring love? Zin would tell us the answer to this one, but I think thats a bit beyond him now. 3. The dream of Akka near the end of TTT. In this dream, we see a modified version of where the nogod comes upon anaxophus, but instead of moving to stop him, the king simply stands there, repeating what the nogod says, as doom comes closer and closer. This dream can be interpreted in many ways, but personally I think it represents what is to come. Kellhus, the precieved savior of humanity (ana) instead of saving the world when the nogod comes, is carying out his will (repeating what he says). Anywho, just wondering if anyone thinks the same about these events, if its all already been done, ect. Love the boards and such, and definatly love this series. view post

[quote="Diem Kaye":d1uj1uic]I think a laser is a bit more original than having it merely be some 'holy weapon'. The only thing I'm torn on is whether I want it to be found again. Because, on one hand, it does seem pretty obvious that it's going to come back, and if my guess is at all right, Akka will probably be whose possession it ends up in. Now considering that by the time the Aspect Emperor comes around Akka will be almost 70, I don't think it'll stay in his possession for long. I'm looking towards either one of Kellhus's kids or some new character that hasn't been introduced yet. So although I doubt anyone will be surprised if it does show up, I have a feeling a lot of people would be pissed if Scott gave so much attention to it and then just said, "Actually, it [i:d1uj1uic]was[/i:d1uj1uic] destroyed the whole time! Ha ha, gotcha, suckers!" And then, one last question for Scott, who will hopefully be able to answer this (and hopefully I haven't missed this little shred of info somewhere in the glossary) without giving anything away for future storylines. So here's the question. Why is the Heron Spear called the [i:d1uj1uic]Heron[/i:d1uj1uic] Spear? Was it because someone thought the light shot out of the spear just like a heron? Or was it just one of those things where you're sitting back late at night and you think, "You know what? That name kicks ass! Heron Spear, it is then!" Just out of idle curiosity.[/quote:d1uj1uic] As stated in the glossary, the Heron Spear is called so because the weapon itself vaugly resembles a Heron. view post

Wild Speculation Follows: Akka, embittered to the point of Cnaiur levels by all that has happened, travels to the kian capital, wherein he becomes cisharium, manages to somehow combine the passion of gods voice with the meaning of the words, then uses his insane powers to utterly annihilate kellhus and hey why not the world while he's at it and by the end of the story akka has utterly destroyed the consult and everyone else as well so good game Akka! Two inutterals are for losers anyway. view post
