  • Kahlan told Richard why they could never be together in Wizards First Rule and the reason was that in the moment of ecstasy  she wouldn't be able to keep control of her power and it would be released destroying his soul yada yada. Now, in many occasions where Kahlan confesses a victim, there is that one description that stands out the most to me, "thunder without sound". Now I have these visions of what the mud people must have seen, felt, heard after Richard and Kahlan had been married and had spent the night in the spirit house. The mud people probably thought the roof was going to come down and that also explains to me why they were all so determined to get them out of the spirit house the following morning. Kahlan could never be able to fake it lol.

    • I wonder if Richard felt it...

    • It never occurred to me but indeed, i quite agree lol However, i doubt a man such a Richard would have Kahlan needing to fake it, i assume... or hope ;)

    • But the fact stands that Richard is such a good lover that Kahlan will use the confessor power over and over but it will not hurt hhim due to his undying love for her!!!!!!

    • Yes, of course but I thought the point Mac6435 was making was simply that Kahlan couldn't fake it because Richard would know... As would everyone else in close proximity to them. Anyway, another thing I just thought of, in The Omen Machine, when Kahlan confessed the woman in blue robes, the impact was excruciating for those very close to her when she released her power, & at that specific time, Richard was the closest to her and despite her powers not affecting him when touched, he still felt the pain of it in the air. So I thought, why doesn't Richard feel the same pain when she releases her power during sex? I don't remember this ever being answered in the books.

    • I believe Richard either did not feel the pain or thought little of it due to his time with the Mord-Sith, as well as the magic headaches. Not only does he know how to handle pain very well he's been through so much what is the impact compared to some of that? But thats just my headcanon for it.

    • I dont thinkher power manifests itself when she reaches climax with Richard, most likely having to do with the way his love protects him from her touch, everyone else may feel it but i doubt Richard will, not to mention his giftworking through need, like not wanting to feel the pain?

    • I have asked this question many times and I thought Richard just ignored the pain because of his "training" with Denna, but what annoys me the most is that Kahlan has her power and hardly uses it when there isn't a Wizard or Sorceress around to block it from her. In 'Temple of the winds' when she is questioning Marlin she could have used her power on him and asked the questions rather than question him and risk him lying or even killing her.

    • I think that's probably for plot convenience so that jagang can write the prophecy about kahlan betraying Richard. More tension for the reader

    • The first time Kahlan uses her power, Richard's clearly stunned by the impact of the force. I dunno, a concussive shock wave in close proximity to the family jewels just seems like it might be painful. Maybe Denna was right in being glad the one he loved could cause him more pain than she did.
