A note on other races posted 28 November 2007 in Author Q & AA note on other races by Writer, Candidate

I took look forward to learning more about the Nonmen, and on the subject of a PoN RPG, I would love to do something like that. My character would defenetly be a Cishaurim. view post


Cishaurim posted 28 November 2007 in Author Q & ACishaurim by Writer, Candidate

When I was reading your book I was really into the idea of the Cishaurim. Despite the fact that we never actually got to see them, I was routing for them the entire course of the series.
I was wondering if there will be anything about the Cishaurim in future books, if they managed to survive the attack on Shimeh in some form and are planning someway to assassinate Kellhus and regain Shimeh or something like that. view post


Why Bakker posted 28 November 2007 in Literature DiscussionWhy Bakker by Writer, Candidate

I kind of have a love-hate relationship with Bakker. I appreciate the philosophy, even if I don't agree with it. I am disgusted by the level of violence and I will probubly never forgive him for having Kellhus sleep with Esmenet. I do love the world he created, even if it is violent, dirty and filled with power-hungry, greedy jerks and the idiots who follow them. view post

Man leaves inheritance to fight Consult or maybe Dunyain? posted 10 December 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtMan leaves inheritance to fight Consult or maybe Dunyain? by Writer, Candidate

Okay, first everybody raise your hand if you wished you came up with this?

Kelhus vs ... posted 10 December 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtKelhus vs ... by Writer, Candidate

I was going to say Batman, but again Batman has all the insecurities of parental abandonment and the whole dress up as a bat and beat up criminals thing, so Kellhus could work with that pretty easily.
I was also thinking Gandalf could square of against Kellhus pretty easily. I think I read somewhere that he's like an angel or something, so that could make him immune to Kellhus' Dunyain manipulation.
Scary thought, what would Kellhus do with the Ring? <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: --> Would he be ammune to it's evilness or would he go for it and become Supreme Lord of Middle-Earth. view post


Was Cnauir gay? posted 10 December 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtWas Cnauir gay? by Writer, Candidate

Keep in mind that being gay is just about the greatest crime a Sclyvendi could commit, and since Cnauir wants to be the Greatest Sclyvendi of them all this would be the last thing he wants to let on.
Is he gay though? Again, I don't think it really matters. He's probubly so screwed up even he dosn't know. view post


Kelhus vs ... posted 12 December 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtKelhus vs ... by Writer, Candidate

[quote=&quot;coobek
Phhhaahh but He would not need a ring. The question is how quickly would he know the words of Valaquenta?


The conditioning would begin within 1 second of him touching the ground. Sauron and 'the darkness which comes before him' would be known in no-time. He would posses the Nazgul with all their weakness. No-one would be spared, no-one save Tom Bombadil of course.


Another interesting dillema is who is unverse greatest swordsman Kelhus or Master Yoda?



I don't know about Yoda vrs Kellhus, but I have to disagree with you on the Nazgul. I don't think they have souls, so they can be classified as the same thing as Skinspys, just alot more powerful and advanced. view post


Pulp Fiction (No, not the movie) posted 13 December 2007 in Literature DiscussionPulp Fiction (No, not the movie) by Writer, Candidate

I've recently discovered a website for a Magazine that does Pulp adventure style stories. You know Doc Savage and The Shadow and Indiana Jones and stuff like that. The idea of doing something in this kind of setting interested me. I've never read anything like Pulps, but I have seen all the Indiana Jones movies.

Here's the site. I don't know how to link, so this will have to do.

How about a movie about Prince of Nothing? posted 13 December 2007 in Author Q &amp; AHow about a movie about Prince of Nothing? by Writer, Candidate

The Prince of Nothing is never going to be made into a movie. It is to violent, dark and intellegent for Hollywood and to expensive for anyone else.
Also, on Balrog's casting. Brad Pitt as Kellhus? Come on, Brad Pitt's a great actor but I just don't see him as Kellhus. Christian Bale could maybe do Kellhus, but I just don't see Brad Pitt as Kellhus. Also, I don't see Christain Bale as Cnauir. I'm not familiar with Monica Bellucci, but I have doubts about her being a good Esmi. Again with Jessica Alba, I just don't see her as playing Serwe. view post

Actually, they arn't looking for any Science Fiction. view post

Xinemus - Oliver Reed (yes I know he's dead - but still...)[/quote:27lwq05i]

Since we're casting dead people in the roles of Prince of Nothing movies, then I'd suggest Orson Welles as Kellhus. If he can't be Kellhus, then he has to be someone else. Maybe Proyas or Cnauir.
I just love Orsen Welles. view post

I'd say Morgan Freeman. And I always pictured Achamian as sort of Greek. view post


Who would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? posted 17 December 2007 in General DiscusssionWho would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? by Writer, Candidate

Well, admittedly I don't know that many black actors in Achamian's age area. view post


Who would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? posted 19 December 2007 in General DiscusssionWho would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? by Writer, Candidate

On the plus side, that means we could get an unknown actor and not some celebrety, thus allowing ourselves to fully emerse ourselves in the movie without the actor getting in the way.
Although we would have this if Orsen Welles is cast as Kellhus, I defend this as Orson Welles is the only actor I can see who could possibly play Kellhus. Shame he's dead. view post


Cnaiur's sexuality-why is the topic so damn popular?? posted 21 December 2007 in General DiscusssionCnaiur's sexuality-why is the topic so damn popular?? by Writer, Candidate

Well, I think it's partially because Cnauir is one of the most prominent characters. view post


What if Kellhus was one of us? posted 21 December 2007 in General DiscusssionWhat if Kellhus was one of us? by Writer, Candidate

Yeah, but what would Kellhus want with the world. He only got control of the Holy War in the first place so he could get to Moenghus. If he didn't then he'd just, I don't know, meditate or something. I don't think Kellhus would just go take over the world because it's there, it dosn't seem like a Dunyain thing to do. view post


Who would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? posted 15 January 2008 in General DiscusssionWho would you cast in a Prince of Nothing movie? by Writer, Candidate

Yeah, I that looks like a good Akka.
On the subject of Achamian, for some reason I thought Jeff Bridges. I don't know why exactly, the only movie I ran place him in is &quot;The Big Lebowski&quot; and The Dude isn't a very Achamian character. view post

Okay, this is probubly going to make me look like a complete idiot but what's lolcats? view post


Kelhus vs ... posted 23 January 2008 in The Thousandfold ThoughtKelhus vs ... by Writer, Candidate

Okay, since that's settled I was thinking that an alien invasion might be able to take care of Kellhus, like if they were really weird non-humanoid aliens from War of the Worlds or something. I was also thinking maybe the Kzinti from Larry Niven's Known Space or Species 8472 from Star Trek: Voyager. Any other suggestions? view post
