Questions we're actually going to ask

  1. Does the Darkness Immortal possess a mind? Can it bestow magic like deities?
    -they don't really know what the darkness's deal is.  each shard has it's own opinion about it.  
  2. Will you please tell us everything you know about Caesras?
    -they are unable to answer this question.
  3. What is needed for the Darkness Immortal to be brought back into the world? Are there seals holding it at bay?
    -divination doesn't know anything about this, either.  the darkness might be bound with itself
  4. What was the "bargain" originally refused by the Akari that sent them into the Undersand?
    -they were given the chance to be uplifted (music, science, art, culture) by the guren.  they were outpaced by the other races, which made the akari bitter.  they went underground because that land was the only one left  
  5. What can the Shadow of Power do?
    -everything the shards can't.  it's the ninth shard, and they can't do things in the other's schools.  they don't know what the ninth school is.
  6. What does Oragor need her for?  Where is Princess Jessa?
    -she is naked in a cage beneath Oragor's feet.  he doesn't need her for anything.  he is currently moving northwest.
  7. How did the Shadow of Power affect the royal family or vice-versa?
    -the shadow of power never affected the royal family.  
  8. Where is the Golden Pavilion? Who altered the memories of the messenger sent to it?
    -she licked Alera's face and now Alera knows where it's at.  no one altered the messenger's memories.  
  9. What was on the scrolls that Oragor Dreadthorne stole from the temple in Sluicegate? Why did he need them?
    -they were books of speculation regarding the shards and all their powers, locations, and relation to the darkness.  dreadthorne isn't going to the next shard as of now.
  10. What does Dreadthorne seek through serving Caesras?
    -she doesn't know what's up with him
  11. Why is Conjuration not working properly in Riparia?
    -she can't see this
  12. What's that crazy realm below Riparia?
    -she can't see this
  13. what's the deal with Callon's language?
    -it's the language of truth.  you can't lie in it.  when you speak they truth, it's true.
