A Question from Way, Way Back...
« on: August 28, 2009, 03:28:29 AM »

I just started reading "Apprentice" again, and I realized that there's always been something about it that bothered me.  Wow (and why) exactly did the Tsurani ship appear on a Midkemian ocean?

It is all about Pug. Everything. The more you read, well, the greater his role becomes. There has to be one mug, I guess.

Yeah, I guess sometimes I just have trouble wrapping my brain around the doings of the higher powers, lol.

A rift being worked on by the Tsurani went awry, if I recall correctly....and the entire ship got sucked in.

My interpretation is that until Macros, and later, Pug, rift destinations were random.  However, once one was established, others could be created near it.  There was a quote in there, explaining it being like iron to a lodestone or something along those lines.

I always viewed it as the Great One on the ship creating a rift to save the ship from the storm he was in on his world, and, as BSP stated, something went awry.  Instead, it opened on Midkemia due to the one that had already been established in the mountains.  The ship appeared here in the middle of yet another storm, and was washed ashore.
