The FF9 comparisons are interesting, but I think that the world Bakker has given us is much, much more sophisticated and metaphysically complex. After all Scott is a philosopher as well as an author, and his world is built upon some pretty heavy philosophical ideas.[/quote:9b08tjxs]

Actually FF games are also. I don't think that the comparison necessitates an insult.

And to be fair, while PON is epic fantasy, there are SF elements to the story (space ship, void, light weapons, etc.)

Think of Star Wars. It could reasonably be classified as SF, epic fantasy, and space opera.[/quote:9b08tjxs]

Oh definitly, I completely agree, there is always alot of crossover between alot of series. I just wanted to stress that the symbology/methodology so to speak of Epic Fantasy is more at the forefront of PON as opposed to it's SF elements. And I meant no insult towards the FF comparisons (although FF was never my thing <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> ) just pointing out that they are more hmmm superficial as in, on the outside they are similar but once you delve deeper the differences appearing make them more and more different. Hmm I know that came out weird but I think you know what I mean. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
