    What factions do you think Richter will come into contact with underground? Goblins, kobolds, orcs, eaters, undead of various sorts and ogres have been confirmed. But what else might he run into?

    What about the three-way war, will it play a part in book 9?

    Are you trying to think of which new village vassals he might gain while underground? Assuming the they are close enough to be vassals.

    In a way. I was mostly just thinking of what kind of races would live in the area. The idea of them migrating towards the surface or other areas of the underground makes a lot of sense though. This would in term displace other factions.

    Some of those factions could head for the surface and Richter. Whether they'd be friendly...

    There are also the living dead. They are probably around somewhere.

    Most of the Vampires would make their way to their PoP, some of the other Living Dead might follow them if they are on good terms, but the majority of the Undead and Living Dead (that aren't Vampires) are the ones that might bump into Richter or the the UnderDark Settlements and potentially cause issues.

    I know this isnt exactly what the thread is for but im going to put my money on the orcs not becoming a vassal state.

    Furthermore, Im going out on a limb and betting one of the kobold tribes does become a vassal, even though they may have a larger population than Richter's village.

    Everybody already mentioned all the races I could think of.. I think he'll see some eaters though

    Oh, and I also think he returns to the village from the underground with 1 chaos seed vassal in tow.

    Also, what the hell, I'll bet that he comes across his first chaos seed party in the area. Not sure theyll be Orc's, but a full fledged faction of chaos seeds working together to survive underground.

    I bet those orcs he met are a koas seed party. The next faction to join the MV will be the Hell Bug Queen (also Kaos Seed)

    I think just one Orc was...at the end of book 8 he asked the bond question and only one was curious...I admit the others responses could be Chaos seeds but it seems like one.

    Brings up an interesting point though. If 2 sources of chaos were in close proximity would he be able to sense that there are two distinct sources?

    I'll do you one better. Why didn't he just use his "eyes of a death god" to see how many respawns left? Someone that is not one should be clear.

    They have to be revealed as a chaos seed to him first. If one of them answered, "shaken not stirred, like a boss" then Richter could probably... stare into his soul? But, anyway it doesnt work until their status is revealed.

    We don't really know what conditions have to be met for that though. For example if one gave him a curious look, richter might think, "that guy knew what I was talking about, he must be a chaos seed!" But we dont know if that would be enough.

    False positive? The eyes of the death God says the falsely identified kaos seed has only one life left.

    Only one was curious? Could be more.

    I wonder how Deep the Lich's Mausoleum/Base was, and how much Deeper Richter is now then that after his Gandalf Fall?

    Hmm I guess 300' deeper than the base. Might be able to get back to the higher level by climbing the chasm he jumped across after being chased.
