Magic intervenes with the order of the world, changing the very Fate of all things. The raw power of a spell is not as important as its effect. Changing the life of somebody with magic will appropriately change the life of the caster - not always for the worse, but usually in an unpredistable way. Most wizards are seriously freaked out from doing any but the most minor of spells. It is said powerful spells attract the attention of higher beings, who don't like too much messing around with Reality. Go to Comment
The priests definitely are, but the creature/god itself is interesting... and it's singing, too.
To add another option, where Eib-ha-bok didn't lie, it can be really attempting to fix the world. And one, distant day, it may succeed - or decide it can't be done, and leave the world to its fate. Until then, it will traverse with its mind all the creation and fix every detail. This looks benign, but knowing this truth and Eib-ha-bok will reveal the degree of its interference with the world - and you'll start seeing its tentacles everywhere, constantly changing everything, including yourself. A few mortals that have learned the truth have suppressed this memory, most went irreparably insane. Go to Comment
The assumption is, that it is (relatively) safe when dry. I'd imagine that the locals remove it from their fields, but leave it around fences just in case. Some might harvest them for more nefarious purposes.
What AG said, they are an interesting and novel bunch. There is an adventure somewhere in there, for how do you stop an indestructible army, that only keeps growing? Will they just keep on marching? If not others, the kingdom behind what's left of Karnivhal would definitively like to know. Go to Comment
Yes, slow can be more effective than fast, even in an apocalypse.
Parts of the Net will survive, the question is for how long and where. People will survive umolested on islands, but the bigger and closer to others, the greater the risk. The smaller they are in turn, the less of civilization will be preserved. Quite an effective way to end it. Go to Comment
