Sorta. Mario killed the Emperor which caused Adron's spell the go wonky, which caused Sethra to teleport the Orb to the Paths of the Dead, which caused the Interregnum. Or at least that's how Paarfi relates it. Either way, I think its certain that the Interregnum was caused by some combination of Adron, Mario, and Sethra, even though I think Adron gets most of the blame, and Mario most of the glory. > Wouldn't that rule Loiosh out? Not at all. Here's the original theory: http://dragaera.info/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi?1:mss:7221:200302:oedljfbmjnmflgnmjoff  From the Jhereg at least.
