Re: Lets take a poll

I voted, but I think we'd be better off letting him make the decision even if we had any ability to do otherwise. After all he is the author talented enough that we all keep coming back to read his books one chapter at a time.

Re: Chapter 29

Oh I agree the hiders could be useful for being among humans. I was just noting that the limitations of the hiders are the reason they used young earth drakes as agents and hence why Kell will still be rotated out soon.

Re: Chapter 29

The young age field agents was about having a realistic size. They used the hider amulets to look human-ish, but when they get older they start approaching 7-8 ft tall which is somewhat odd if not downright impossible/unique for humans. Thus they are way to obvious to be used as operatives. The punc...

Re: New scion: "Kell had his place in this ritual, in two ways. Firstly, it was one of his tail spikes that would serve as the spell’s focus, the crystal to which the complex and powerful spell would be locked, and yesterday the sages had spent nearly six hours carefully studying his 17 spikes to p...

Actually, although I fully grant that you will refuse to believe me... that repulsive effect you "see" from Trump. It isn't really entirely him. The Democratic party (and to a lesser degree the Republican party) have been using identity politics and similarly divisive political tactics for decades w...

Re: Pyrosia, "open" or "closed" to non-Sennadar types?

Tarrin as a god had basically no power. He had a few nifty tricks which left him capable of being incredibly dangerous. But, mostly it was the tricksy way his mind worked that made the Mortal God dangerous. Remember, prior to him "becoming a god" he instilled all of his god powers into the Sword of ...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 10 [Spoilers]

Eh, the Elder God version can use at least some of his power outside his home plane because he's not a Prime Elder God while Niami can't (or barely anything really) because she is a Prime Elder Goddess... it makes a pretty significant difference apparently. But whether he'd be allowed to tamper in a...

Re: On chp 18, Axe of the Dwarven King, a question.

The sorcery I was talking about wasn't connected to his sword. I was referring to Niami giving him the wings, which allows him to use sorcery regardless of where he goes. I was ignoring the divine impact of him drawing sorcery from Sennadar into Pyrosia. That was after all, purely an artifact of his...

Re: On chp 18, Axe of the Dwarven King, a question.

Well, he wouldn't have been connected to the Weave when he first left Sennadar. He wasn't uniquely connected until after he removed the lingering divinity. She replaced that divinity with a touch of her power and gave him wings that way to replace his lost ones. I agree there are plot consistency co...

Re: On chp 18, Axe of the Dwarven King, a question.

Not sure I see a question in there... but it was originally planned to be 9 or 10 actually. At least that's what I recall. And to be fair, up until he reveals to Ayise his plan to free himself of the corruption of the Firestaff he was going to be expendable... so the 10th really was actually intende...

Re: Retrubution Chapter 9 [Spoilers]

To be fair, if the science was 100% correct it wouldn't be science fiction. Let's be honest, the fiction part requires that some aspect of the science be ineffable. That said, it's always better (to me at least) when the fictional part of the science is believably scientific, even if beyond our curr...

Re: Weavespinnder dynamics

I feel the need to point out that the Sha'kar under the ward couldn't become Da'shar. They specifically were unable to commune with the Goddess while under the ward and becoming a Da'shar requires going to the heart and thus being able to commune with her. Pretty sure they mention this to Tarrin dur...
