The way events were unfolding, I thought Jacob was seeking entrance to the other world so that he could chase down the murderers and make them pay in the afterlife. I was a bit surprised to learn that he himself did not really understand what he was searching for. (A meta search?)
The moment where he determines that he himself is a killer who must pay fits in neatly with the genre, me thinks. I like it.
This seems like good flavor for the setting. I don't know if I'd use it directly; it's possible to make a Macguffin out of it, but I don't know that I would. I'd be more likely to make the location, or the road to it, a setting for conflict involving the two dominant religions.
Of course, I could certainly see Trianarianists attempting to destroy such a tangible symbol of the dead prophet.Go to Comment
