I thought so at first:Feeblecursedone said:Edit: I was also thinking about those old men trees. Could these be deceased magicians who's souls were put into trees in order to avoid being pulled into vortex of souls?
But in retrospect, I think they're just going to turn out to be trees that are "alive," and that's represented by depicting them as old men.Walter said:The old men trees reminded me of one of Flora's last lines to Schierke -- for great magic users, death isnt the end, but the beginning of a new kind of existence. I wonder if those entities inhabiting the trees were once old magic users who had their souls transferred to trees to prolong their "lives." Which of course, made me think of our favorite old man knight.
However, they wouldn't have gone to the Vortex necessarily. Flora says souls are divided according to their karma. Souls dominated by evil go to the Vortex, but not all. Flora, for example, isn't there.
