Headscratchers: Lone Wolf
  • What exactly is the Neverness?
    • It seems to be the "raw, unformed stuff" of the Daziarn Plane. Basically, those with power to shape the plane can form the Neverness into their own realms. Of course, given the nature of the Daziarn and the difficulty in bouncing from one realm to another, it can be insanely difficult and haphazard traversing the Neverness, entering it, and especially leaving it. Grey Star needed Magitek to make the transition, and Lone Wolf needed literal Divine Intervention.
  • Interestingly, a lot of the creatures considered "undead" don't seem so. For example, the Akraa'Neonor from Book 3 is considered undead... and it's essentially Shuma-Gorath. Huh?
    • We don't know by which process Vonotar created it. And given some of the things we glimpse in his laboratory, it's probably best to stay in the dark.
    • The existence of the Stone Effigy implies that the creature was there long before Vonotar arrived. Vonotar may have simply raised it from the dead.
    • I believe for a lot of these things they invovle modifying corpse or dead creatures, and therefore qualify as undead. Failing that, maybe the Sommerswerd is super effective against otherworldly evil things or some evil creatures (since it was made to oppose Naar).
  • Why can't Kekataag use his psychic abilities against you in the final battle?
    • It's the end of the series; Lone Wolf's Psychic Block Defense is probably so strong at this time it isn't even worth trying.
  • Why does Rimoah repeatedly borrows Banedon's skyship when sending Lone Wolf or his apprentice on missions? In Vampirium he outright shows up on Cloud Dancer without Banedon and then uses it for the entire mission. The Elder Magi invented flying ships. Skyrider belonged to them before Banedon won it. Don't they have their own Skyship they could use? It'd make sense if it was just convenience (Banedon does live in Sommerlund so its a short trip for him to come pick up Lone Wolf or the Apprentice) but Rimoah lives in Dessi, and yet feels its more practical to not travel in his own Skyship?
