    Wherewithal = the ability and means/resources (especially financial) to accomplish a task.

    Not having an electronic copy of Midnight Tides I an only guess at the context. The conversation was about something the King was considering doing which would be a very difficult task for anyone else but something the King considered trifling, and he ended with a tangential afterthought, but Brys and the Ceda were referring to the main part of the conversation? The last part between them basically joking that if near-infinite resources were a virtue of immortals/ascendants/Gods then the King would be a God.

    Very smartarse humour. Anyhoo, that's my theory. Probably way off.


    It makes sense actually. Thank you.

    "Mad enough to spit" is a saying. An idiom.


    Seething with anger; furious to the point of becoming irrational.


    Oh, okay. Makes sense. Thank you.

    The Finadd will get upset and spit because they're upset.


    First of all, thank you for replying. English is not my native language, so I'm having a hard time with this. What do you mean by "spit"? Are you talking about throwing saliva with his mouth? What does that have to do with anything? Is it a euphemism for killing?

    On a related note, there's something else I didn't understand. Tehol and Bugg are still conversing.

    The wizened face at the hatch was scowling. "And Turble?"
    "We smuggle him out the usual way. He's always wanted to take up fishing. Put someone in the tunnel, in case he bolts sooner than we expect. Gerun's watchers will be our finest witnesses. Oh, and won't the Finadd spit."
    "Is this wise?" Bugg asked.
    "No choice. He's the only man who can stop me. So I'm getting him first."

    What does "won't the Finadd spit" mean? I couldn't figure it out no matter how hard I tried.

    I believe there it means a scribe who records the name of the deceased, the point being that even tho the body or reason for death is suspiciously vague, someone is still making the name of the dead person 'official'.

    ...i could be wrong but that's how i read it, in the context of Eberict's activities and the semi official cover-up around them.


    But how can a scribe determine the owner of a blood sample? It's not like they know about DNA.
