Mention of Nequii and the Sept 27 '01 comic makes me think a bit. Of these, would it be friendship, kinship, or the need for safety (not from death, as he <I>is</I> immortal, but from other forms of danger) that accounts for Nequii's remaining in Haven (a good deal of the time, not all, of course) when he might be somewhere else instead? (This is assuming the answer isn't inertia or momentum, take pick.) Finding myself curious and interested in any answer that isn't spoily (the question may well have been answered already, but I recognize in myself that I am badly unperceptive.)

Not that strange if there were no 'zelles in Erigineea, really. There's REALLY high mountains between it and Lands of the Orders, with like two commonly used passes and no more than a handful ones that are no longer in use because of risk of falling rocks or because they're too narrow for most traders. And the dragons in Dragon Mountains tend to act quite hostile when they think they have intruders. Like, attack first and ask questions to the ashes, type hostile. Especially at the time of OMW and later, because of the general upset mood in the East of the mountains.
And wozelles natively live very far East in the Lands of the Orders, the only ones that get near the Erigineean Border are bondmounts of knights or Bonded of travellers. And since wozelles don't like dragons (in 'the wild', if one can speak of such regarding sentient beings, they hunt dragons and gryphons, and dragons and gryphons hunt them), their Bonded or bondriders tend to respect their wishes to remain at the 'right' side of the ridge.<P>

Which explains much. I assume Zvee and Shadowrose weren't Bonded at the time of OMW (or, at least, during its first Part)? I can only assume further that there's a story in their meeting and Bonding (gads, I sound like a dentist (stop that. (?) (well, you could have said chemist.) (That would have been better?)

<I>Very</I> interesting, and I certainly remember Iony.

Oh, true that, you don't have a clue as to what happens to Zvee in OMW. I only know it roughly, myself, so... <P>As for Nequii... 'Follower' was a bad choice of words. They know he's there, and they know he's a God, and that's what counts, in this situation. Which doesn't say that Camael isn't hell of a lot stronger, but long as Neq stays in Haven, he tends to be left alone. Most of the time. Too much trouble to argue with other deities about trespassing.<P>

No, that doesn't make very much sense...)

Trespassing- ah right, since some of the residents of Haven are at least partially deities themselves, it's <I>them</I> Camael would be arguing with. Sorry, I wasn't thinking any too clearly.<P>What <I>is</I> with Keensp* today? Almost as funky as my older Macintosh and that is really saying something.<P>I wonder. Camael has already kidnapped Nequii once(September '01 storyline)- it probably helped that Haven's population was severely depleted at the time and those who were there somewhat otherwise occupied, or was Nequii even in Haven at all when kidnapped? (And the line I was looking for was indeed "release my souls on your people"- September 23- and if Wendy is (still?) owed favors by something that has trusteeship over souls, then... hrm. Multiple reasons to be afraid- is the first thing to come to mind?)
(And I now see, paying closer attention- in part because the word was unfamiliar to me when I first saw it- that Silver mentioned Duhdrra when he returned with Nequii. About getting a dozen of them from the Islands being an easier task. Hrm? Are there only 11 of them there? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> )

Sah' got a lot of help and agreements with the Gods in general. They owe him a favour or three, so...

Hmm... The only three that stayed in Haven 'cept for Shadowrose himself were Achira, Erinzo and Relevan, were they not? And Nequii, but he doesn't mind.

Hrm. Tangentially: you mentioned that there was one spirit that Irooz could still contact even without her powers.

Oh, Shadow's luck is always pretty close-pressed. We'll see what he thinks of it in a future storyline.
Bonded, not bondmount. And no, that is not what 'Thrainem meant, it was more of that 'Rose loves Zvee dearly, and Zvee telling him to stay alive made him at least stop fighting the Healing. But as she said, too, just loving Zvee was hardly enough this time, and might be too little if it happens again.<P></B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Ah ok, that explains it.<P>Unfortunately still something(s?) I don't understand about that arc, but I do think I will in time. Happens. I know myself not to pick up things except gradually.

The reason this thing is so long, in the first place, is that I gained understanding of the concept of dropping clues. And I instantly fell in love with it. Slow storytelling is a lot more rewarding, I think.<P>
