Oh, I love this! Very curious to see the final :)
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Have gone for Rake and Draconus.

We don't know the powers of Ti'am and K'rul at all as they are never at their peak powers in the books.

Isn't it already decided since Rake slew Draconis back then? ;)

According to Mael, it might have been a ploy by Draconus to escape Kallor's curse. So we probably don't know if he was fighting at his prime.

I remember when Draconus was speaking of Rake as "upstart" ;D
