A few questions . . . posted 26 March 2005 in Author Q & AA few questions . . . by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

The website needs to be redesigned from top to bottom, that's for sure. Jack actually has a prototype, but he's doing it gratis while attending university. I actually have big plans, just precious little time to execute them. The idea was, first and foremost, to dedicate them to the books rather than to me, and secondly, turn them into an online resource. I want to get as much secondary, background material up as possible. I even have a historical atlas I want to put up.

But as I've said, I'm a monomaniac. As soon as I try to take on multiple projects, my stress levels spike, and the wheels start to spin. I should get my wife to post about this sometime... <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

I'm also high priest to the Great God Procrastidemus.

So I guess what I'm saying is that these are great ideas, and would probably go a long way to helping the books, I just have no clear idea when I'll be able to throw myself at them 100%. I'm reluctant to incorporate much on the website as it stands, because it won't be standing long, and fleshing out the new website will take a substantial time investment. I'm paying my rent with my writing now, which means after TTT I have no choice but to throw myself at Neuropath. Perhaps after NP... But then my leave of absence from Vanderbilt runs out, and I have to finish my dissertation or risk kissing off my PhD. And then there's Aspect-Emperor to consider...

Aieeee! <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Am I the only one who's in the hole project-wise? Please tell me no.

Regarding your questions, WL.

1) You've hit bottom with the Thoti-Eannorean question. I genuinely have no idea.

2) So far, the deepest the histories go is to the Fall, which is to say, the arrival of the Inchoroi in the last Age of Nonmen. At the moment, that feels plenty deep, and it precedes the Tusk by quite a few thousand years. I haven't been looking at the history of Earwa so much from the standpoint of an 'absolute observer,' as from from the standpoint of what is known or thought to be known at the time of the Holy War. This isn't a rule that I adhere to, just a tendency I seem to have largely followed. There are things from the time of the Tusk I do want to flesh out, such as the conflict between the Old Prophets and the Shamans, the question of how the surviving Inchoroi brought Chorae, the 'Tears of God' to the Five Tribes before the Breaking of the Gates, and the Cuno-Halaroi Wars (Halaroi is the Nonman name for Men). Stuff like that.

3) Nymerik is actually the King of Aorsi, and kinsman to Celmomas (my office is an absolute disaster and I can't find the chronicles, but Kuniuri, Aorsi, and Sheneor were once a single kingdom which was divided among three sons - all Anasurimbor). As for Celmomas's son, you actually learn a fair bit about him in TTT. view post
