Description

 

'A small black man with gnarled limbs and short grey hair. A first glance he looked like nothing more than a whithered up old gnome. Yet one look from him could be enought to drive anyone away as if struck, or if wished, crush them to their knees.' (NoK UK HC p. 166)

 

'Mages by nature never commanded loyalty. Fear, yes, and the respect born of fear, but the one thing a mage found difficult to understand or cope with was loyalty. And yet

there had been one mage, long ago, who had commanded loyalty – and that was the Emperor.' (GotM, UK Trade, p.216)

 

 

 

Apsalar, presumably speaking from Cotillion's memories: 'The Emperor warred against armies, not civilians -'(DG, UK MMPB, p.195)

 

Tattersail: ‘The Emperor had a knack for gathering the right people around him,’ she continued. ‘But he wasn’t a fool. He knew the betrayal would come from that group. What made us the right people was our power.' (GotM, UK Trade, p.75-6)

 

‘The Emperor was insane,’ Bellurdan said. ‘Else he would have protected himself better.’

(GotM, UK Trade, p.76)

 

Iskaral Pust: 'Damned sappers! Who invented them? Madness!'

Fiddler: '...Why Kellanved, who else -'

 

Taralack Veed 'The old Emperor had displayed uncanny skill at infiltrating the unnumerable cults abounding in Seven Cities, then delivering unmitigated slaughter upon the adherents.' (BH UKTpb. p.141)

(DG, UK MMPB, p.352)

 

Olar Ethil'Kellanved did not die. He ascended, and has taken the Throne of Shadow. Had he died in truth, the First Throne would be unoccupied once more'(MoI UKTpb, p.597)

 

 

 

Famous Quotes:

 

'A state that employs torture invites barbarism and deserves nothing better than to suffer the harvest of its own excesses.' (DoD)

 

'Is there anything more worthless than excuses?' (DoD)

 

'History comforts the dull-witted.' (DG, UK MMPB, p.119)

 

On the nature of gods : “Elemental forces in opposition,’’’ (DG, UK TPB, p.612)

 

'Know your enemy better than they know themselves'(DG, UK MMPB, p.747)

 

'Every throne is an arrow-butt.' (DG, UK MMPB, p.846)

 

'An army that waits is soon an army at war with itself' (HoC, UK MMPB, p.335)

 

Toc the Younger: ‘Never ignore the barbarians...Emperor Kellanved’s words.’ (MoI, UK trade, p.295)

 

"The miracle of hindsight is how it transforms great military geniuses of the past into incompetent idiots, and incompetent idiots of the present into great military geniuses. There is the door, and be

sure to take all your pompous second-guessing delusions with you…."
