    That's an interesting tidbit, though I don't see how it contradicts anything Nazralte said.

    I thought so too. Does anyone remember what the jewel that Hytanthas uses to light his way in the tunnels ends up being? I thought it was mentioned, but don't recall clearly.

    Yes, the spirits are resolved and the will-o-wisps are resolved. The monoliths are resolved, and in their resolution released the energy that made the land fertile (rather than destroying everything as Faeterus had intended it to).

    So the last magic is either the curse the gods placed on the valley to shush people away OR the sort of metamagic worked over the monoliths...because really the monoliths had their own energy (the energy of the sorcerers) and the elaborate ritual Faeterus(sp?) did was something that accessed the power of the monoliths...right? In other words, the monoliths were not originally conceived as a major weapon...just as sorcerous tombs or repositories. Or perhaps Faeterus's ritual, while it is a major magic, is not one of the four native to the valley. That would make sense too.

    In any case, they are all resolved unless the general curse over the valley is still there to keep people away. Alright, sleepy and confused. Done for now.

    I've got a question. If this is where the Elven peoples are pretty much going to live or die how come they don't have a single good dragon with them? I got that the dragon's numbers are lower then normal but there wasn't one dragon who thought it might be a good idea to make sure all these elves don't die? In the war of souls they had an army of golds and silvers and all those dragons just left the elves alone in a place where they have good chance of all dying? Seems kind of silly to me.

    The dragons have their own problems, I'm sure.

    Well, at the END of the war of souls they had some help from dragons (the races of krynn that is, not just the elves), but the good dragons tend to be like the gods, not interfering the balance and all.

    Resurrecting this thread a little since I just finished Elven Exiles. In my opinion the trilogy was great. I have always loved the elves and I loved the seeing the change Gilthas has undergone since his days as the puppet king. The fates of some of the characters bothered me a little bit. I thought Planchet could have gone out a little better, or even yet have survived. Faeterus' death, for being the main villain of the series, was slightly boring however I still ovrall enjoyed the series. On to the Kingpriest Trilogy!
