There is a forum topic on this very subject on the site proper
Syphile's last words will be something to the effect of "Tell Ariel...."(Dies)That way, no one will know what her sentence ended with. Like if it was either "that I still fucking hate her guts" or "I'm sorry".
Ash'waren will be the next Val'SharessIt's been hinted at already in very early info, and now that we know she's really a dark elf she has a more legitimate claim on the title. And she could probably just brainwash everyone into accepting her if she really wanted to.
Kalki is the daughter of Khaless, Snadya'rune's protector twinThis one is actually pretty plausible, and would explain the rather vague Word Of God explanation that she both is and isn't Snadhya's. Presumably Khaless had Kalki and was then killed (willingly or unwillingly) by Snadhya, who then adopted Kalki and used her to set up the Nidraa'chal. Considering how long the coup was apparently planned it's not implausible that Snadhya waited a few decades for Kalki to mature.
The first child created for Snadhya did survive..
Maybe Kiel was right when she said maybe the seed didn't take Naal over completely, as once Naal is safely locked away, she then reaches for her doll of Sharess' knight.
Sha'sana is possessed by Sharess
Baliir is extremely handsome
Could Blossom from the Goddess Knight Daydream storybe related to Quaintana?
The two Scourges who poisoned Kiel acted on the behalf of Ni'bai and Umpus.They're the only members of Sene'kha’s group who still want to summon the demon god. But as long as Kiel's in charge things are a bit more difficulty, since she's strictly against it. That’s probably a good motive why they want her dead. To cover their tracks they hired the two Scourges from Nyo’ka’s group who didn’t like Kiel, anyway. It was a win-win situation: Either Kiel would die or she would blame Nyo’ka, another high-ranking Vloz in opposition to Sene’kha’s plan, and kill her. Sure Nyo'ka makes herself suspicious after she killed one of the two Scourges and covered to other, who rat out her partner in crime. But she didn't do it because she was involved in the assassination. It's because she can't afford to lose too much members of her group. After all there is a tough competition among the summoners and she needs every follower she can gather.
Diva'ratrika had Sarv'swati with a male from the Val'Sullisin'rune clanThis would explain why Sarv'swati and her descendants have bluish-purple hair. Diva'ratrika's hair colour is purple and Ash'waren's descendants usually have some kind of blue tints to their hair. Maybe part of the peace treaty with the Sharens involved Diva'ratrika having her next child with a Val'Sullisin'rune. We saw in the flashbacks that Snadhya'rune was already an adult during the early war between the Sharen and the Sullisin'rune and as there were no other appearances of Diva'ratrika's other chidren, readers can infer that Snadhya'rune was then Diva'ratrika's only heir. Also, remember the Daydream story about the Sarghress/Sullisin'rune alliance? Re-read what the terms Ash'waren dictated to Quain'taina were and now think back to why Ash'waren may have agreed to the terms set out by Diva'ratrika after the Sharen/Sullisin'rune War and what additional benefits (if any) she may have gained.
The father of Mel'arnach and Kel'noz was a member of the Siyah'Khorshed.And it was Farasank!! Unfortunately only Mel'arnach inherited the height of both parents.
Drow and Elf ears are erogenous zones
Kalki will betray SnadhyaLike mother, like daughter. They don't have a perfect relationship and she might eventually get tired of Snadhya's Control Freak tendencies, and either choose Mel or strike out on her own.
Shinae will take Chrys'tel's title, rank and name before the time skipIf she doesn't die, she's somehow proven herself to Zala and truely become her daughter. For the drama and because I don't see her getting killed with out a big bang.
Not all the Nidraa'chal are tainted or there are ways of masking signs of taintingOtherwise how can there be Nidraa'chal deep cover agents in every major clan? Particularly in those of the Kyorl'solenurn and the Sullisin'rune or even the Jaal'daarya clans?
Tainted drow can mate with one another and thus produce tainted offspringNot sure about this one, since in flashbacks to when she was a little kid Kiel doesn't seem to be tainted (her eyes are orange, so it's hard to tell, but they are drawn differently than a tainted character's), while it seems her mother already was, and odds are whoever her father was was also tainted.
Nau'kheol or Sarnel will be possible love interests for Ariel after the time skipNau'kheol for the Dating Catwoman aspect or Sarnel for the Kissing Cousins aspect. With the latter case its less likely for Quain'tana to disapprove of it considering Sarnel's bloodline, so my money is on Ariel's love interest being Nau'kheol.
Fae (Drow and Elves) are closely related to the Protoss.
Mel's "study group" from the Daydream story will appear in the main story...... As Nidraa'chal. Think about it. It's said that there are Nidraa'chal in every major clan, and Mel's group was composed of girls from... every major clan. Including a Kyorl'solenurn. And who were they all recruited by? Snadhya'rune. This one is so heavily implied in the DD story that I'll be shocked if this isn't true.
Yafein will return...... And he'll be tainted. Given how much emphasis he puts on growing stronger and insisting that he's not weak he'll be tempted by Emperor Pal— er, Snadhya'rune, and get a seed to make him stronger. Said seed will later devour him.
The Kyorl'solenurn Seers have long had visions relating to Snadhya'runes plans and are just sitting on the information until the time is right for reveal.
The sixth daughter of Diva'ratrika (who died long before the main story began) will turn out to be important in future chaptersWhy else would Kern mention it in the Orthobbae section of the website if it wasn't important? There's been no mention of a Retcon on this plotline so far and her death might explain some of the backstory to Diva'ratrika's relationship with her children.
Yakuise and Taisei are spies for the Kyorl'solenurn in the Sharen fortress.Makes sense otherwise why else would they be living with the Sharens and not with their own clan? Neither of them are tainted. If Yakuise is also a Val, she's likely to be Shimi'lande's daughter as well. Related to the earlier WMG about the Kyorl'solenurn it fits the theory that the Kyorl know a lot more about Snadhya'rune than they should.
Lulianne is now a Deep Cover Agent in the Sarghress clan for Snadhya'runeNow that she has been possessed by Khaless she'll be working for Snadhya'rune against the Sarghress to further her plans. The front cover of Chapter 32 seems to suggest this as well. When Mel'arnach and Snadhya'rune are having their discussion in the carriage◊, the latter's dialogue wasn't just an example of her affably evilness or her just trying to be philosophical (LOL), it was actually a Chekhov'sGun for admitting that Khaless possessed Lulianne and that being able to manipulate emotions is easy for a demon.
Shodun the Nidraa'chal is the daughter of Elham, one of Mel's "study group" friends in Daydream
Quain'tana does not just want an heir from Mel'arnach, she wants a womb transplantA massive stab wound rendered Quain'tana sterile and barren. Seen here◊, here◊ and now here◊, the context seems to point to something beyond just Ariel. What else would Quain'tana want that Mel'arnach has?
Sharess has become the demon...
When Sil'lice refers to Snadhya'rune "murdering her children whilst in the womb" , she really means that Snadhya'rune has found a way to taint children whilst they are still in the womb. Possibly confirmed here, since somehow children are being affected by the taint while in the womb.
Khaless will absorb Snadhya'rune by the end of the time skip
Laele'aell had minor empathy
There will be more flashbacks of Kiel
There's nothing left of NaalThe only evidence that she's still alive is that she hugs Kiel. I don't know about you, but even after being unceremoniously ripped from this reality, left to slowly claw my way to consciousness over the course of a decade, and being locked in a room for however long it was, if a girl fed me and then started crying and asked me to eat her, I'd give her a hug.
Balsii's "punishment" will be to be made administrator of the Surface colonyWhat better punishment for a xenophobe than to ship her off to a place that's completely foreign to her, and if she happens to get killed, well, tough.
The Balvhakara will be instrumental in helping the Beldrobbaen reboot their numbersNow that we know about the kinship between the Balvhakara and the Beldrobbaen, when we next reach Chel in future chapters this issue is bound to crop up. The Balvhakara are Vals, so their status would be no barrier. There should be no problems adopting members into Beldrobbaen ranks to boost numbers, depending on the relationship between Waes'soloth and Agneya'mukhi.
The Sullisin'rune were/are descendants of the earliest ancestors of the Dokkalfar population, dating back to the first Dark Elves to exist. This means that they have the oldest bloodline of all drowolath/dark elf nationsThink about it. When we saw Ash'waren's flashbacks and the Goddess Knight story, the Thalamani refugees were shown to be somewhat shorter and paler than their Sharess'land counterparts. On average the Sullisin'rune (or at least Ash'waren is) were/are shorter than the average drow/dark elf. They also possess empathy, a trait also shared by the drowussu. Earlier on this page a troper suggested the possibility of empathy being linked to the ability of being a Seer- as a possible offshoot the latter. Who do we know possess Seer abilities? drowussu/Light Elves. The original dokkalfar were light elves who became tanned due to living in warmer climates. As the two types of elf grew more isolated, they became separate races- the light elves/vanir and the dark elves/dokkalfar. Most light elves have/had red or blonde/white hair. In the Goddess Knight story, we see Sharess' ancestor and First Empress of the Dark Elves as a red-haired somewhat paler than usual dark elf woman. In terms of height, the light elves were shorter than the dark elves and their gender variance was the opposite of that of the dark elves. Ash'waren is short for a dark elf. (The average dark elf woman was around eight feet tall.) Seven? foot tall Quain'tana towers over Ash'waren. Drowussu males are taller than their females, and unlike their drowolath cousins', their males can often be a match for drowolath females in terms of height (example, Ti'rade, who is quite tall for a drowussu.)
Most drowussu/drowolath hybrids are the result of drowolath male and drowussu female couplingsIt makes sense as most drowolath females would see drowussu males as weak and would hardly have the spare time to meet with drowussu males (who are also in templar/warden relationships with their females). This would also explain why high ranking hybrids such as those in the fallen Dutan'vir clan, emulate the gender dynamics of drowussu. Most hybrids also tend to look more drowussu than drowolath as well, probably due to the mother's genetics in-universe being stronger.
Kyo'nne is with the DuskiansMany readers were puzzled by the fact that Kyo'nne doesn't appear in chapters 33 and 34, despite it being set in Nuqrah'shareh. Well, maybe she is there, just not with the Illhar'dro. The last time we saw he she was fawning over a Nuqrah'sharehan boy who looks a lot like the Duskian who greets Chrys. Same eye and hair color. So maybe Kyo's been there the entire time, and the fact that the Duskians are culturally more like drowussu appealed to her since she was still getting over Shan. Word Of God is the story will shift back to Nuqrah at some point, and when it does we'll either see Chrys visit the Tower of Dusk and be surprised to see her old friend or the Duskians will send an envoy, who happens to be Kyo.
There will be nine arcs in total to the Moonless Age webcomicThis is less WMG and rather a plausible observation. It makes sense as nine is supposed to be an important number in drow culture and we are already on the second arc of the main story which is unlikely to be the comic finale...
Syphile's biological parents died in the Nidraa'chal WarSince we know very little about her parents except that they were both great warriors, hence why Quain was so disappointed in her, it's pretty likely that they're dead by the time of the main story, especially since Quain's other adopted kids clearly know and interact with their biological parents (well, except Ariel, but that's a special case). And if her parents died in some manner of Heroic Sacrifice or Last Stand that would do even more to explain why Syphile annoys Quain, and why it's only at the very end when Syphile accepts death that she gets an ounce of approval from Quain. And if they died in the Nidraa'chal War that might be why Syphile lashed out at her friend Sael, sine Sael's situation (losing her entire clan) hit a bit too close to home if Syphile's parents had just died, and why Syphile was so desperate for Quain's approval that she unwisely got herself tainted, and we all know how that worked out.
Mel'anarch's new children were fathered by a Sullisin'runeLaele'aell was Quain'tana's most promising heir and therefore Quain'tana might hope that Mel'anarch might produce similarly strong offspring with another Sullisin'rune. If not, This Troper is hoping that the father may turn out to be Valo Yurunhiir Sarghress, just to see the literal giant offspring that those two would produce.
Ash'waren is mistaken. Salan'dara isn't actually loyal to her.Going into enemy territory to "investigate yourself " the situation though you already know what's going on? A Too Dumb to Live situation or actually a cover story for her secretly helping the Nidraa'chal effort?
The death of Diva's sixth daughter was her Despair Event HorizonWe know next to nothing about this daughter except that she existed, but her death could've been the turning point when Diva just stopped giving a crap.
Faen used drugs to cope with going to a school full of demonsHere, Faen calms Ariel with thoughts of peace, love, and chocolate. Here, chocolate is shown to be some kind of drug to drow. Also, it's apparently not too hard to get in Orthorbbae. There's no way to tell when Faen ate chocolate, but given that school was the only time she both was both under a lot of stress and had access to chocolate, it would be the most likely time. Also, if this is true, Faen would have had to deal with withdrawal as well as people dying when she was imprisoned, which would have made the PTSD worse. That's not really necessary to explain it though.
Valla'drielle Kyorl'solenurn is the Drowussu equivalent to a Xuile'SolenAnd the third eye on her head is not a gift of Sharess, but a mutation.
The Mole in the Sarghress for the Nidraa'chal is Kel'nozPurely by virtue of the fact that this would be the one outcome that would be guaranteed to piss off as many people in the clan as possible.
What if Snadhya'rune is only a Disc One Final Boss? The real antagonist and the Man Behind the Man is actually KhalessThis was proposed in the forum after the most recent chapter (39 as of this writing) given what was revealed there. After all, it seems that it was Khaless' "accident" that drove much of what happened later with Snadhya'rune is implied to have really made her kick up her efforts with the Nidraa'chal, but Khaless is still a demon even if she's an intelligent one, and is just using Snadhya'rune for her own ends. And Snadhya's so called "safe" taint is just a ploy to turn drow into vel'akar like Khaless without them noticing.
The Mole in the Sarghress is SuubeI thought of this one when I was thinking about how her motives are very similar to Balsii in that they both think they can run things better than the people currently in charge, and rather than being full members she might just be another Unwitting Pawn. Either way, there are plenty of hints she's up to no good.
The series will end with the elves not taking control of the surface or even trying, rather it will with the remaining elves settling as neighbors to halmes and any others, whether they like it or notLet's be honest, the conflict is certainly going to kill even more elves. You have the swords and arrows of several soldiers, including the Black Sun tribes. You have the Jaal'Darya's fungus that they're going to use for biological warfare. You have the taints that will make large chunks of the Sharen and others into demon targets. There's the demon god that members of the Vloz Ress have looked into, and there's the body of Sharess. With so much in the pot, there's no doubt that things will get ugly around the world, killing more and more elves. After all of that is dealt with, a majority of the elves will have been wiped out, changing the aging process for assorted elves. This combined with elven birth rates being what they will make them even more outnumbered than before, which combined with the resources of the Halmes and others will make taking over the surface a pipe-dream by then. At least one elven leader will take a few of all that into consideration and see to it that a arrangement can be made that is helpful enough for all involved parties, since there really won't any better options at that point.
The final battle is withKalki, who will plot against Snadhya if she hasn't already, playing a role in the latter's demiseIt's already been hinted that things aren't sunshine between Kalki and her mother Snadhya'rune. And said mother already plotted against and helped sealed alive her mother years ago. It would be clear Generation Xerox for Kalki to plot against her mother and play a role in her downfall, doing what she can be the Big Bad from that point onward. Bonus points if she becomes some sort of abomination in the process ala Neo-Exdeath from Final Fantasy V.
It will be revealed that Nau being a smaller version of his father will go beyond a strong family resemblance. Some time after her mate's death, Zala will either try and fail to molest/have sex with Nau or succeed. Alternatively, it will be revealed that she has already tried to before, or she already did.To several readers, Zala and her children come across as being a more ideal Drow family in contrast to Quain'tana and her children, and other Drow families. Parental incest between Zala and her son would could certainly shatter that illusion.
Vala'drielle is actually a Nidraa'chal agentOriginally suggested on the forums, but the whole "third eye" thing seems pretty fishy, and she's implied to have spent most of her time at Orthorbbae, aka Snadhya's Nidraa'chal recruiting ground. Add to that this ominous scene and there's a decent chance she's up to something.
