That's my point,although I didn't express it properly; if Tortaalik could 
have broken the link of Adronn with the Orb he would have done it, wouldn't 

When I said that it can be broken just in really special situations I wasn't 
thinking about the Emperor but in Verra and her fellows. Well, in fact I was 
thinking in Mr. Burst, who is able to broke the link and anything he wants, 
especially if we agree that it cannot be broken. :)

Interesting, it introduces a sensitive aspect of the cycle that I haven't 
seen discussed here, despite we have discussed the sensitiveness of Great 
Weapons, Spellbreaker, Artifacts and even of some of the members of this 
mail list.
