Hi everyone,

thanks for the mass of answers to my question.

Peter Metcalfe :

If so, how is it no one else cares ? Are the Telmori so hated that everyone wants them dead regardless how and by whom ?

Jane Williams :

That's right and I liked them.

But the Telmori attack Agrath already in 1628 (according to Stephen Martins 'A Timeline of Third Age Dragon Pass') two years before Kallyr is killed. Is already here that Kallyr and Agrath are foes ?

Then again, why doesn't anyone else care ? It can't be that they don't care who is sitting on their throne.

Somehow I can't believe the Telmori willing to embrace the moon after the Hon-eel incident and Jomes Wolf in 1607.

Is it possible that Argrath blames the Telmori for all the bad things which happened to Sartar (much like Hitler with the Jews) and that he can "convince" the tribes to exterminate them. In doing so he unites them. Until now this is my pet theory.
