Unless Kenhodan's memories are not up to date.

I suspect that the Derm Canal did not happen. Had that canal been completed Kenhodan's "recollection" of the animosity between Sothoi and Hradani would have been tempered by that massive joint project. What exactly happened is unknown. I can't wait to find out.

KenHoden is apparently this univrse's equivalent of Ken Houghton, which is why it seemed somewhat familiar to Bahzell. That's two speculations laid to rest. only about 2000 to go.

No, I'm sure it's supposed to be, "He is Space Sergeant Houghton." That make more sense.

Or, possibly, we're seeing an artifact of a dictation software hiccup. But I think the first one is much more likely. ;)

Didn't Bahzell used to have a full suit of plate?

An odd thing to have stick out at me out of all that, but back to mail and a breastplate sort of lept out as "wait, what?"

No. Bahzell had breasted plate and chain.

Or the "Space Sargent Kenneth Houghton" reference wasn't a misprint. That there are other universes besides this one approaching cusps. Moreover, Tomanak's description suggests that this Ken Houghton was a version that might have been.

Perhaps the Light uses only beings from universes that are never instantiated to avoid influencing the free will of that universe? Those entities can enter a universe to help persuade the universe in flux. So gods only use beings from the uninstantiated or the decided universes.

“I approve,” Wencit said briefly. Kenhodan only grunted, his eyes sweeping the front of the tavern, swinging from the barred door to the corner of the windows. A flicker of light caught at the corner of his eye, and he glanced over to see red and gold runes dance quickly down Wencit’s sword, confusing the gaze that tried to follow them.

Ready!” the wizard hissed.


Now how did I just know you would break off at a point like that? :geek: ;)

What I'm wondering is what happened to Walsharno?
