Which means that during Turn 4, possibly starting on the tail end of Turn 3 here, the Cults may find themselves under attack from the Dreamtime, as the Dreamwalkers attempt to end their bondage. Rusting chains encircling dream-bubbles are decidely against their philosophies.
It's a little complicated. Khalen, or whatever he calls himself these days, isn't actually communicating with the cult as such. The Cultists came into being through the psychic fallout from Khalen becoming the king of the Torment realm. It raises interesting questions about whether these cultists are a one-off thing and the next generation will not be affected in the same way, or whether there will be another shockwave like that through some other event.
I'm literally making this up as I go along so if the Weaver or his psychotic alter-ego want to throw a wrench in the works, by all means go for it! I have no idea what the fall out from it would be. I suspect however, that Khalen's trick of re-entering the Disk through the Dreamtime in the Eye won't be a viable long term solution once The Weaver finds out he's responsible for screwing with the Dreamtime.
If nothing else, I'm pretty sure the Cultists would be welcoming the chance to be free from horrific nightmares without having to throttle people.
