: That's an interesting notion, and reminds me of a big
: point I raised against MJ's interpretation of the
: Myrks when M3 came out, which we may have to scrap:
: The Fetch vanish when their skins are punctured
: because Wyrd smites alien things. Why, then, doesn't
: he smite the Myrkridia, who were ALSO summoned from
: another dimension? (M3 doesn't say the same as the
: Fetch, that was my own invention). This indicates to
: me that the Myrkridia are NOT extra-dimensional and M3
: was very wrong about that.
Wyrd can't smite Fetch, it's just a "religious" way of saying something. Doesn't mean it's literal, perhaps the atmostphere is harmful to the Fetch true form, and by going straight up they attempt to escape the pain. Or perhaps their grip on the Myth world is extremely weak and without a shell they are torn upwards into the sun or the void.
It is perhaps because the Myrkridia are not as "Alien", having proper corporeal forms, that they do not suffer the same fate as Fetch.
While with the Myrk Giants going down is like returning to the earth/grave (since they are resurrected, so in part undead). Or perhaps their magic has it's roots in the earth, as like warlocks who burn up.
To me normal Myrks probably have Ghollike intellegence, mirgating from place to place so food creatures could recover, before the harvest. While Giant Myrks have intellegence of something closer to very smart humans (and so are best to lead, and know when to migrate). They could also be creatures from across the seas or the East, brought in ships by Moagim instead of undead. I also think Moagim wouldn't of used Undead at all, and so would not of had The Watcher under his thumb. I mean it never says anything about Connacht fighting Undead.
Perhaps it was during an attempt to crush humanity that The Watcher was tricked and imprisoned by Myrdred (who may have pretended to be a pupil, but was really an undercover Avatara).
I had something else I was going to say too, but I've forgotten...
