A mysterious force holds Krynn in thrall. A young woman, protected by her regiment of dark-armored knights, calls upon the might of an unknown god to bring victory to her army as it sweeps across the land. The souls of the dead rob the living of thei ...Continua

Spoiler, of course.

像是回答了雷斯林對帕林的教諭般,達拉馬的沈痛。

像是回答了雷斯林對帕林的教諭般,達拉馬的沈痛。

"Perhaps I do," Dalamar replied.
"I know that I have changed.
The battle I fought with Chaos stole hundres of years from me,
yet I could live with that.
I was victorious, after all.
Victor and loser, all at the same time.
I won the war and was defeated by what came after.
The loss of the magic.

"I risked my life for the sake of the magic," Dalamar continued,
his voice low and hollow.
"I would have given my life for the sake of the magic. What happened?
The magic departed. The gods left.
They left me bereft, powerless, helpless. They left me--ordinary!"

Dalamar breathed shallowly. "All that I gave up for the magic--
my homeland, my nation, my people....
I used to consider I had made a fair trade.
My sacrifice--and it was a wrenching sacrifice,
though only another elf would understand--had been rewarded.
But the reward was gone, and I was left with nothing.
Nothing. And everyone knew it.

......

"You were not alone." Palin was unsympathetic.
"All of us were affected the same way."

"No, you weren't," Dalamar retorted passionately.
"You could not be. You had not sacrificed as I had sacrificed.
You had your father and mother. You had a wife and children."

"Jenna loved you--" Palin began.

"Did she?" Dalamar grimaced.
"Sometimes I think we only used each other.
She could not understand me either.
She was like you, with her damnable human hope and optimism.
Why are you humans like that?
Why do you go on hoping when it is obvious that all hope is lost?
I could not stomach her platitudes. We quarreled.
She left, and I was glad to see her leave.
I had no need of her. I had no need of anyone.

.....

"It is not easy for me to say these things about myself, Majere,"
Dalamar added.
"It is especially hard for me to say them to you, the darling child of magic.
Oh, yes. I knew.
You were the gifted one, beloved of Solinari, beloved of your Uncle Raistlin.
You would have been one of the great archmages of all time.
I saw that. Was I jealous? A little. More than a little.
Especially of Raistlin's care for you.
You wouldn't think I would want that, would you?
That I would hunger for his approval, his notice. But I did."

"All this time," said Palin, his gaze returning to the trapped souls,
"I have been jealous of you."

落日之巨龍說明了魔法消逝的理由。殞星之巨龍則點出了「唯一真神」的真名。

落日算是有在努力營造「唯一真神」的神秘了,尤其Mina幾段描述神性的台詞還能得我首肯:

神無善也無惡,無暗也無光。

所以我有點暗暗期待這「唯一真神」的現身,不是Paladine那個糟老頭、也不是千金大小姐Takhisis、或者呆木頭Gilean....罷了,如果是Gilean的話也不錯啦........可是大概不符合Gilean的個性。 ....一旦知道唯一真神是誰,一旦能呼真神之名,名字就束縛了唯一真神的形象,一切變得....無趣。orz

Ansalon 還真是多災多難啊。到底這個世界是多有魅力,讓那些成天無所事事的諸神晃來晃去晃了那麼久的時間還不覺得膩....orz

如果她真的轉性了,也許Dragons of a vanished moon可以期待,不過有道是江山易改,本性難移,新書我拿到了,看來未來不甚樂觀。

善神惡神並無善惡,卻有個準則可以區分。信仰與服從,否則處決;信仰與服從,否則無視。

你想選擇哪一種呢? ...Continua
