Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

While there was a bit of power creep I think people are forgetting that Jason has been studying with his Pai teacher for the entire arc, almost since he first discovered the Pai...he just didn't expect to use his skills in live combat before. We saw him create a fireball earlier in Retribution and a...

Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

I would assume something like that would be possible but be a bitch to maintain (especially if your doing something like moving fast) simply because of the micromanaging all that light. Setting up the conditions might be easier. Telekinetics this way requires a lot more concentration than magical tr...

Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

Hmm...I'm not sure. The augmentative properties of the biogenic crystal were only a happy side affect, not a real aim of the Generation program. The way they have been increasing the power was mainly just putting bigger and more complex biogenic crystals around for the Generation to synch with. I'm ...

Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

While Faey use of it has been largely constrained by the lack of adepts, part of that was being that the 'test' that the Faey used was not very efficent. hte princess of the Pai basically said it in this 'arc', that the Faey tested to young and thus missed. Jason went on to make a plan to test the e...

Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

SYED: I think your getting ahead of yourself with the Generations becoming the premier telekinetic. As mentioned, the masters have incredibly strict standards not only on the power of their potential students but their moral standings. Somebody who learns and immediately gives out the knowledge to t...

Re: Retribution, Chapter 12 [Spoilers]

That last line...I'm sure Jason is correct and nothing will go pear shaped..../sarcasm mode disengage.

Man the thought of what a fully trained Jason/Cybi team could do is kind of scary...

Re: Overall thoughts about the series

One thing I noticed was people's comparative power for their Talent seemed to shift a bit, but that's fine.

And yeah, the subtle shifts in the Faey is going to be fun to see.

Re: On chp 18, Axe of the Dwarven King, a question.

I think your right in that Spyder wasn't the first. That said, she was born to deal with Val/The Blood War, just as Tarrin was born to deal with the Firestaff and Val. As for how she survived, my view would be that it was her ability to warp the world that let her survive...or Niami realised what wa...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 11 [Spoilers]

Honestly if there was a way to use either telepathy or shaman powers to turn the Benga board from the sociopaths they are into well intentioned people with empathy coming out the ass...their life expectancy would probably be measured in seconds. That kind of altruism is almost the exact opposite of ...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

I've kind of felt that Jason was going to get transferred into some kind of psiconic life-form all the way back to the time he built up that perfect body-double at the start of the story, or even the introduction of Rook. As for what I think is going to happen? I think Jason is going to be merged wi...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

Well, even if there is no magic, there’s still Druidic magic, if the elder god permits it. Druidic magic is tapping into the elder gods power after all. There is also the fact that Tarris as of the end of Demon Bane and definitely in a simple task is psioconic...to the point he can reshape reality w...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

...Tarrins as the dry voiced Purpose of the Universe in the Belgariad now has me giggling. I know it had a weird sense of humour but Tarrin just trolling Belgarath just amuses me. IIRC the Orb (and its opposite) were avatars or at least recipricles of the two Purposes's power. The Belgariad cosmolog...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

Besides which, with the gestalt Jason is likely to be walking in there with, he probably wouldn't even need the spiders, he could just kill them all with his TK. Keep this in mind. It will become important later. ;) ...That's kind of statement is worrying. Though wasn't there a scene with one of th...

Re: Weavespinnder dynamics

Honor and Blood (book 3), Chapter 16 is when Niami explains things to Tarrin. There's anther conversation between Tarrin and Spyder in the samer book (before their lessons) that explains/elaborates on the other orders of magic regaining their old powers as well.

Re: Retribution Chapter 8 [Spoilers]

Yeah, oh crap is the right word. I'm not sure that was the most...diplomatic way to go about things Jason. I mean I knew that spy games would be undertaken but the way he went about it just seems needlessly confrontational, even though he was very firm about not giving the tech out. That said, poor ...
