Tear of the Gods Ending
« on: May 09, 2005, 03:09:20 AM »

Spoiler: show
At the end of Tear Sidi is being harrased by the Goddess of Good, Arch Indar (sp?). We learn though that she helped Will and the others during their quest for the Tear. My question is how can a dead goddess take such hand in opposing Nalar's agents when others like Nalar, Ishap and Sarig need preists or avatars to do their work? Perhaps Arch isn't as dead or sleeping as we think????

Hope that gets spoiled properly as it's my first post... whoohooo good by posting virginity.

Howdy. To learn to post spoilers read this thread

you didn't do too badly for your first attempt. :)

to answer your question, exile's return goes into more detail about the gods. you learn more about the true nature of the gods (arch-indar included) definately worth a read if you haven't already checked it out.

I'll have to re-read that again.  I know the part you're talking about but even then they haven't taken direct steps like the 'witch' in Tear.

Spoiler: show
Exile's Return introduces the concept that nothing can ever be truly destroyed. So though Arch-Indar is "dead", in essence, she's not, because nothing can truly be destroyed. The figure that appears to Sidi at the end of TotG (and to Kaspar in ER) is only a memory of the Goddess. If she gains enough worshippers over the centuries, she may return. The Greater Gods are so powerful that the memory of one lives on as a self-aware, conscious being, an entity in her own right.
