* When reading book 5, Solovet seems surprised Nerissa knew of Gregors predicament because Nerissa's phrophecies are so shifty...
** Awhile after the last page, [[spoiler:you realize Solovet didn't believe in prophecies,either. Like Ripred, she just used others' beliefs to her advantage. She had to save face by recanting her question, or admit her beliefs]]
* Why did no one believe in Nerissa's prophecies despite making war decisions based on Sandwhich's?
** [[spoiler: Because most people didn't believe in Sandwhich's either, but went with the flow like Luxa]]
** Because Sandwich was a great historic figure who founded their culture and was a great warrior. Nerissa is a frail young woman whose prophecies are vague and fragmented instead of epic and poetic.
