Gonna jump in here. posted 17 January 2005 in Author Q & AGonna jump in here. by Quinthane, Candidate

The extraordinary enjoyment I got from reading these books has left the anticipation for TTT palpable. Fortunately, the level of insight and intelligent discussion that happens on this board serves as a pretty good balm. The speculations and questions posed here nearly always send me back to the story to find plot points or intrigues that I'd missed or was ignorant to the first time around.

Talented authors draw talented readers. I'm proud to count myself among them, though it's an intimidating pool to jump into. However, I just finished both books a third time through and came away with a question or two worthy of asking. So here goes;

1-When a Schoolman comes in physical contact with the chorae do they get to role a saving throw? Or just straight up die.

2-During the march of the Holy War did everyone have to role to see who took first watch? Was it nightly or weekly? Did the Vulgar Holy War get destroyed because they forgot to do this and wandering monsters got them?

3-Is ‘Warrior Prophet’ a duel class or a multi-class? Cause you also refer to Kellhus as a monk...so coming up with his hit points and THACO musta been a bitch.

4-Is that little doll thing Achamian's familiar or just the result of a bungled Create Golem spell?

and lastly

5)-If Kellhus were to put on a Ring of Contrariness.....would the man's head simply explode or what? view post

Thanks Quithane! I could tell you were an extremely talented reader as soon as you said 'extraordinary enjoyment'...

1) Actually, they straight up dice. That is, unless you're talking about a glancing blow, in which case they just scream and salt a little.

2) I started with the rolls, but I got a headache from the ripple, so I made an executive DM decision (in the interests of furthering narrative economy). You should know I don't actually believe in wandering monsters. They're premeditated SOB's who are just out to get me.

3) Strictly coach. It doesn't look like I'll ever make enough to fly first class.

4) Doll? How would you like it if Esmenet called you a 'chump?' Some sensitivity, please...

5) No, no, no, no, no! view post

Thanks Scott. I now feel worthy of the group! Praise for my word choice was unexpected joy. Makes posting here even more perfect.


Very uniquely yours
Quinthane


btw--When I said 'doll' I didn't mean Esmenet! How innapropriate would that be?! I was talking about Inrau. view post
