Chimpman wrote:It would seem to imply that Silva is not a copy, but one of the original two twins. This puts a really nice twist on things. It does make me wonder though, how much does Silva "remember" from all of her copies' memories. Does it work in a similar way to the kalashtar of Eberron (who all share fragments of a common soul), or do you have some other mechanic in mind?
Chimpman wrote:I think previously you have implied that Silva has gaps in her memory (or were we talking about Aurora) from the time of the last copy's existence (Illodius in Alfheim?) until the present day. If she is indeed the original that might suggest that a copy's soul fragment is recycled through the original before being used in another copy - which would at that point allow Silva to "remember" some of what happened to the copy during its physical existence.
Chimpman wrote:Of course this also begs another question - why is the original roaming around on the Prime, when a copy would do just as well. And would't it be safer to use a copy anyway - if a copy is lost, you just create another one... but if the original is lost, then what happens? So something really important must be going on for the original to be the one in the field.
Chimpman wrote:All caught up, and so many questions. The 12 Thrones intrigue me the most, I think. The term "wandering stars" made me immediately envision satellites. That there are 12 of them might suggest 1 for each sign of the Zodiac. If Silva was in one of them (The First Throne of Stars) when it fell, that would also suggest that others might inhabit the other 11 (or now 9) Thrones still orbiting the planet.
Chimpman wrote:Why were they placed in satellites? Something Aurora said implied it was to keep them away from the Taint/Wasting. Who else is up there? And... if 2 other Thrones fell previously, when did those events happen and who fell to the earth inside of them?
