It really doesn't require a healer or flesh-shaping to survive a lost arm. Just a fire to sear it and stop the bleeding, and the guts to do that of course.

On a completely different topic, I only just now twigged on a detail I missed before. Ember referred to herself as Sunstream's "little sister" in this issue. Does that mean Sunstream was born first? I always thought Ember was the older twin.

Or Sunstream just really likes to nag Ember. He was the one who called Ember that, in a very show-offey moment.
Especially funny if you consider that in terms of actually lived years Ember is the oldest, by three years.

which you probably wouldn't have time to build before you bled to death!

@Redhead-- you are right!

Oh, wait, maybe it was about their height difference. (facepalm) Ember's shorter than Sunstream these days. So she's likely the firstborn twin, but littler in stature.

Not if you happen to be Haken. He seems to have firestarter magic:

He draws with fire, which was kindled by his blood. Guess that's normal, since he looks like rockstar from the 80ies Shocked

Plenty of blood if an arm is torn off...

He would! He is such a pain in the butt!

You know what I think is more likely? Rather than being Winnowil's ancestor-- he's probably the ancestor of Savah (who also has fire magic) or one of her friends and family who crossed the burning waste. Because they were the progenitors of the Sun Village-- and since Rayek looks like Haken, he's probably descended from him.

That would be a so much better resolution of the "what happened to Haken's genes"-question: him having normal ordinary descendants for ages instead him having an evil Winnie-daughter instantly. "Evilness" is not an hereditary trait

Would work in both directions, Lunakat! Wink
According to the story told by Voll in the OQ Yurek and the new bios on EQ.com and other elves spit off the group that was led by Voll.
Voll and his followers founded BM and became the Gliders. The survivors of Yurek's group crossed the deset and founded SE.

Right.
I doubt that Haken was still alive (or living with Voll's/Yurek's people) at the time of the split. Voll told that "the young of his generation turned to him for guidance".


... hmmm ... does not actually exclude Firstcomers being around. Maybe there WERE some still ... would they "step back" and give lead to a more adjusted firstborn? Makes Voll the Timmorn of that group.

Of course! Even if Ember is older than Sunstream, she is still littler than him.

What if one of the things Timmain was afraid of was that she had found out that Haken's descendants are out there! We must be careful! But in reality they turn out to be the nicest people around.

Shocking revelation: Timmain was evil right from the beginning! We know that some powerful elves* can send lies, and as it happens, Timmain manipulated the rest of the group and all the later-born elves, to believe that Haken was the bad guy. That's why she is afraid, he might be out there Smile (didn't Winnowill call her sister as well?). The Wolfrider's legacy is built on a lie Razz






*who all happen to be tall, btw

But how many of them are likely to be descendents of Haken? How many kids do you think he had? A bunch of offspring in Blue Mountain and a bunch running off to found Sorrow's End? Unlikely, esp given his personality.

Also- of the two groups, which contains members that bear a resemblance to him?

Winnowil also calls Leetah "sister".... maybe Leetah turns out to be evil as well? Super big shock to Cutter.

Shoot, I've been convinced of that even since that Hidden Years story, esp. as presented in the Rogue's Challenge as a story/parable told by Timmain herself through the Scroll. That mess of a story is so full of plot holes and inconsistencies it can only be read as the SoC equivalent of a "classified" document that is 80% black bars and 20% margin scribbles in a questionable hand.

And if Timmain DID rewrite history, she didn't do a very good job of it, considering the Firstcomers had 2 clear opportunities to just get into the Palace and fly away, and Timmain screwed it up twice by fighting with Haken.

Timmain's a monster. Nothing shocking there. *mike drop*

I have read issue 9 today.

I feel for both Strongbow and Moonshade. Strongbow doesn't seem to understand her at all.

I have not followed Rayeks storyline so I don't understand why he has left with Winnowill, and now returns, thinking they will heal her. But I'm sure there's logic in there somewhere.

I'm not sure I like Timmain in this case. I can follow the logic behind it, but somehow it seems a bit cold to me. I would stay away from her, too, if she talked to me like that. The part where Timmain says "... and those who find their way to me" instead of the palace, as Embala points out, gives me sudden flashes of an elf cult. Hare Timmain? I'm all for Timmain turning evil. Sounds a lot more interesting than her recognizing Skywise...

And I am curious what will happen to Shenshen.

I'm very curious about the Timmain thing as well, and I did get the creeps when she did the whole 'ME' thing. I've never been a big fan of Timmain. I know she's supposed to be all otherworldly goddess, etc., but I find her alien behavior off-putting at times, and really disconnected.

Of course she won't be evil. Her hair isn't dark  Wink

Interested in Moonshade and Strongbow's 'separation'. I'm not sure it's permanent. I feel like....what on earth is Moonshade exactly doing IN the palace? What is she learning? I really want to see her being good at something, finding fulfillment outside of tanning. Right now it feels like she's kind of floating along.

We know Timmain is going to drop some kind of shocking information on Cutter-- so she must know something the rest of them don't.

Maybe this ME is meant personally in another way - elves who consider her an adversary will find HER in the Palace. * thoughts wander to Haken again*

What if we just keep detailed discussions about any given issue of Final Quest to the discussion thread featuring that issue? And if you don't want to read spoilers for that issue, don't click on the topic!

The thread called "Final Quest 9" is just going to have spoilers for Final Quest 9. And so on. Let's assume that and simplify things.

Oh wait a sec- I see what happened! When I left that comment, I was using my phone. It only showed me the first few pages of this thread! I was wondering why that question got brought up again!

Silly me! Red is right. Carry on, y'all!
