I've always thought Libby Beer and Old Ammet are undying. Very 
recently I came up with a theory which isn't even IMHO yet. What 
happened to Robin and Tanamil? Could they have transfigured into 
Libby Beer and Old Ammet? I haven't read The Spellcoats for a 
long while (because it was the only Dalemark book I had for ages 
and I wanted to let the others catch up) so I could have forgoteen 
something crucial.
