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

Friends... posted 21 March 2005 in Author Q & AFriends... by Quinthane, Candidate

Make yourself a 'What Would Kellhus Do" key-chain. When your friends ask what WWKD means, play it off like it's something they'd never understand. They'll eventually crack under the weight of ignorance and read the books in order to save face. R. Scott will take it from there.

It's one way to go. You may want to drop into the probability trance to be sure it's the shortest path. Be carefull though. Makes sure you know what you're doing. Last Friday morning at Starbucks I used it to discover the shortest path to a free venti mocha. When I came out of it, the store was closed, it was 2:45 a.m. and my wallet was gone.

So bone up on it. The Logos is without begining or end...but the middle is freakin huge! view post


Bakker vs. Kellhus in Cranium posted 03 April 2005 in Author Q & ABakker vs. Kellhus in Cranium by Quinthane, Candidate

A few years back I was working on a script whose story included a character with a genius level intellect. Good Will Hunting hangin with Hannibal Lector discussing Richard Nash--type intellect.

My intellect was strong enough to envision the character as well as the impact he would have on the story...and that's about it. (Took me two tries to STOP spelling 'discussing', just to give you a little hint.) Despite knowing what the effects to the plot needed to be, and understanding (or at least recognizing) the scope of the man’s intellectual prowess.....and despite loads of research, bringing the character to the story in any real and honest way was beyond my ability.

In Kellhus, you've created a peerless intellect and, to your enormous credit, have taken us through the details of his problem-solving, theorems, plots ploys acumen. Everything. (You know how I know when Kellhus has made a mistake? When Kellhus says 'I've made a mistake'.)

You are clearly an above and beyond mind yourself (spelling 'discussing' was probably child's play for you) however, your protagonist (and his father) are, in theory, beyond even you, yes?

My question (clumsily gotten to) is this: Did you ever find yourself stymied when dealing with Kellhus and/or daunted by the height of the bar that his reality sets?

Impressed as hell with both of you,
Quinthane

Feelings for our protaganist posted 22 April 2005 in Author Q & AFeelings for our protaganist by Quinthane, Candidate

After reading both DTCB and WP, I immediately turned the story over to my two best friends. We all three feel its heads and shoulders above nearly everything the genre currently has to offer.

I am struck by the different reactions we each have towards Kellhus. I am utterly under his thrall and hunger for every next move he makes and marvel at how his manipulations manage to encompass my thinking.

One of my friends is made uncomfortable by his reaction to the Dunyain. He cannot shake the feeling of manipulation and the weight on his own moral compass...but he cannot ignore his understanding of the bigger picture that all this fits into.

My other friend is fully angered by Kellhus and, near the end of WP had to put the story aside for some time. Esmi and Akka broke him and no matter the logic of circumstances, he cannot get past it and sees Kellhus as a villain.

We all agree that a story that evokes reactions this diverse is a testament to superior story telling.

How does Kellhus strike you, fellow readers?

Signs of PoN Addiction posted 02 June 2005 in Author Q & ASigns of PoN Addiction by Quinthane, Candidate

[size=150:1nmqvlvp]Addiction is no laughing matter friends.[/size:1nmqvlvp]

Addiction to works of fantasy is as serious as it gets. The landscape has always hosted it's share of pit falls and, until lately, ASOIAF has hooked and strung out more users faster than treatment could be found. Now, with this new arrival, the disease has gained a new host, more powerful and persuassive than any before it.

Are you Kellhus Caught? Has the Kanuck of Kuniuri put the jan smack-down on you? In short friends...are you Lost in the Logos Loop?

Read the following questions and objectively answer how many apply to you:


1) Do you now drink wine from a bowl instead of a glass?



2) Does never again having a good night's sleep seem like a steal for the Gnosis at twice the price?


3) Are any of your pets now named Anasurimbor _______?


4) Have you ever said or thought "Knock it off, White Lord!" fearing that answering an abundance of questions is time spent not writing?


5) Have you decided what School is right for you? Do you find yourself trying to see the Few? When you can't, do you conclude that you're surrounded by Cishaurim?


6) Have you sustained any kind of injury atempting to step into the sky?


7) Do you scan White Lord's posts finding salient details you'd overlooked? Are you quietly eager for the Author to address them?


8 ) How close to certain are you that Donald Rumsfeld is a Skin spy?



9) Describe Akka's map.


10) Are you now eager for White Lord to start his own message board with a Q & A thread so you can bone up?


11) Been searching out a copy of "Dunyain for Dummies"? (Whelm your coworkers! Learn a friends PIN number by how he squints! Spice up what comes after by knowing what comes before! )


12) Do you own four or more books by Bakker even though the man's only written two?


13) Did you read question 12 and say "Three! Three books! Not two, TTT is almost done! It counts! Three!"


14) Have you atempted using the Probability Trance to find the shortest path to TTT's pub date?


and lastly;


15) Do you check GRRM's site a little less frequently now?

Things I will not accept in an argument posted 06 June 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionThings I will not accept in an argument by Quinthane, Candidate

Things I don't accept:

Improper use of the word "irony".

Same goes for "literally".

The warm blanket-of-a-phrase; "Well, everything happens for a reason." Yes. It's called 'cause' and 'effect'.

People who endeavor to shape how you think of them by saying to you "I don't care what anybody thinks of me."

Those are the highlights. Ironically, I deal with these things almost every day and it literaly drives me nuts, which I know is just life's plan for me.

Bakker Biography Material Unearthed! posted 11 June 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionBakker Biography Material Unearthed! by Quinthane, Candidate

Fellow PoNtiffs,

After unearthing the lost (discarded?) transcript from TDTCB, I realized that there’s more to be learned about the PoN story and its author to whom we’ve pledged our allegiance and (test results allowing) a kidney.
I retraced my steps down the path that first led me to the lost transcript. It seems, however, that passwords have been changed and a firewall installed. (I’m not certain if this is due to a recent security breach or if R. Scott is experiencing dead-line induced paranoia. His personal diary makes no mention of it.) The study deepens. Always it deepens.

So, undeterred by these permutations,, I cast about for the shortest path with no security measures and decided to contact some of the people mentioned on the back cover of his books.

A gentleman named Steven Erikson was the first to return my call. Unfortunately, the man’s considerate gesture yielded nothing helpful to my search. Erikson, apparently, has never heard of R. Scott Bakker or his books. I explained the connection several times but nothing seemed to ring a bell for the man. He thanked me for bringing it to his attention and hung up to call his lawyer.

Eventually, I managed to track down and meet with a philosophy major who attended school with Scott and knew him well. A good natured fellow with a noble sense of loyalty regarding his friends, illustrated by his refusal to supply me with any contact information on Scott. I liked him immediately. He stood firm with passionate resolve. He even threatened me with physical violence if I didn’t unhand his wrist and stop bothering him.

So that was funny.

Luckily for us, I was dealing with a philosophy graduate (educated in Tennessee, no less) and was therefore able to Jedi mind-trick the info out of him in a little less than a half hour.
Energized by a little success, I took my leave of the dear fellow having procured Scott’s home address, extensive driving directions to Scott’s front door, and the guy’s car.
(Wanting to reward kindness with kindness, I gave the guy a scribbled drawing I’d done on a Denny’s napkin. Just a rudimentary depiction of one hand clapping inside a box containing a cat that may or may not be dead. He was overwhelmed! Ran off like the wind, waving it about screaming for someone to come over for a look.)

*note to future and fellow researchers: Remember when dealing with philosophy students; they’re more afraid of you than you are of them. Gentle, firm, tones, use slow non-faith based movements and gestures. Generosity is usually the shortest path. Agreeing to pay for the pizza gets you nearly all need.*

Uneventful trip to Scott’s house.

Arrived to find Scott and his new bride not in, much to my disappointment, and no sign that suggested they’d return soon. Feeling a bit foolish, I had to remind myself that meeting Scott in person wasn’t the point of my trip. Uncovering insights into the man behind the story was. To truly know the Bakker that came before so that we can all fully appreciate the Bakker that came after, that was my Shimeh. So I shook off my frustration, ignored the meth-hangover and got refocused. Soon the legion within was stilled... the Logos was apprehended...I inhabited the center, occupied the place between the before and the after.
I was Witness.
I was Awake.
I Let myself in through the patio door with a brick.

I won’t go into describing their home except to say that it’s lovely. (I’ll upload the pictures to my website once all six rolls of film are developed.)

Even though I knew it was rude to do so, I simply had to help myself to a change of clothes from their bedroom closet. Forgive me. It was a three day drive with no bathroom stops. What a relief to put on clean, dry clothes that smelled fresh and fit comfortably! It looked like Scott had some nice stuff, too.

But I wasn’t there to sample the rich, buttery flavored life of a well to-do novelist, garnished with hazelnut-infused suburban motifs and encrusted with a subdued wealth and stature. No. My objective was fact finding and research, so as to pay homage to the talent that had erected this iconic suburban Canadian (pardon the redundancy) nest. To do so unobtrusively and with reverence.

Immediately after a quick nap, a shower, a snack, two cocktails, another wardrobe switch, and catching the last episode of Deadwood, I began my research.

I hunted for anything that would give insight to the man behind the books, any understanding of the Bakker that came before so that we could more fully appreciate the Bakker that came after, with no hint of redundancy. The hall closets yielded nothing. Got the same result searching the fridge, the laundry hamper, the mailbox, kitchen cabinets, medicine chests, the neighbor’s mailbox, the liquor cabinet, dresser drawers, the liquor cabinet, and the liquor cabinet.

No luck.

I was hopeful when I located the computer in, what I assume is Scott’s office, but again nothing. The desk was fairly sparse except for a stack of Xeroxed questions from White Lord next to a bottle of TUMS. The computer had a few random emails and one HUGE word document called ‘Triple T’ that was too long to scan but sounded like porn or worse, pro wrestling. I figured Scott’s lovely wife would disapprove of either so I deleted it. (found several backed-up copies, btw. Deleting each one took waaay too long so I went ahead and wiped the hard drive.) It’s for the good of his marri-----

To be perfectly honest, I've had a pretty strong case of Posting Performance Anxiety about it. It grew in the telling and the audience in my head just loved every thing that got trotted out on stage. Now it's tomorrow and the audience in my head are all watching TiVO and the bit's gone public. It seems my computer's sound system isn't good enough to hear the reactions of those who read it.


I''ve come to know PPA fairly well and if anyone here also suffers from it, know that you're not alone. And you can rest assured that whatever you come up with that strikes you as brilliant and worthy of a mile-long praise thread will sit all alone with nothing but the 0 Replies marker to keep it company.

Then some mindless drivel you slapped up there while tanked (and the next day forgot you even wrote) will give birth to a litter of grinning, laughing emoticons. Or maybe even the coveted ROTF LMAO.

a question posted 31 January 2006 in Off-Topic Discussiona question by Quinthane, Candidate

I hate when people see you reading and assume that it's perfectly okay to interupt and start up a conversation. As if reading isn't anything more than a way to kill time between REAL interactions.

I was at a coffee shop earlier reading Thousandfold Thought when someone I vaguely know plopped himself down at my table and said, "Hey guy! How's it--"
That's about as far he got before I reached into his throat and ripped out his laranyx. As he sailed through the shattering plateglass window, he had the nerve to look astonished.

So, here's my question;

How much of the damage to the coffeeshop window am I finacially responsible for?

The Vulgar man reads Bakker by analogy to Potter and therefore sees him as 'Sinister and Mean and Woman-hating'.

The Wise man reads Bakker by analogy to GRRM and his ilk and therefore sees him as 'The DM that we DREAMT we coulda played with back in the dicing day!'

However, those who walk conditioned ground read Bakker by analogy to no one, because they know that comprehension, which is a long word to spell, can only do violence to Bakker, who does the bob-and-weave.

It is enough, they know, that Bakker thinks of them......and drops everything to explain every nook and cranny of Earwa.

Wow. Who knew?

I went to the gym today and discovered that I am endowed with super-human strength. I'm pretty sure that yesterday this wasn't the case. I can't swear to that, but I don't recall being able to uproot trees or bend steel or nothing. Though...now that I think on it...I didn't really try any of that yesterday.

Anyway, today I seem to be capable of feats of godlike strength. I bench-pressed the entire aerobics room, did shrugs with the reception desk, and dead-lifted the smoothie bar. Then I was asked to leave. After doing some curls with a Jeep 4X4 in the parking lot I decided that I'm probably not going to get much more out of conventional lifting so I came home.

I've opened all the jars in the house and rotated the garage three feet to the left. (better angle on the driveway)

But, I'm not sure that this is the best use for my new-found uncanny prowess. Feels like I should...you know...help out, I dunno, humanity or something. I've left the house three times with the intention of going out to save the world, but haven't made it as far as the street yet. Not sure if this is a 'What would Kellhus do?' situation or more a Cnaiur-beat the crap outta anyone who tapes a 'faggot-weeper' sign on my back.

You folks are pretty bright, any thoughts?

Hey guys. Thanks for your tips on how to handle this. I've thought about it and decided that I should pick a super hero name and get a costume put together. Then I'll hit the streets.

Have to admit, this part is tougher than I expected. I've been sitting here for two hours now and nothing I come up with seems to sound right or convey the benevolences and valiance that I plan to unleash upon the world. (Doesn't help that there's been some terrible accident outside in the street and all the screaming children and sirens have made it really hard to concentrate. Something about a bus of orphans on fire, or.....nuns, maybe? I don't know. I'll check CNN during my next smoke break.)

I initially wanted to go with Captain something (Captain Chaos, Captain Strong, Captain Krusher, Captain Sarge, Captain Order, Captain Logos, Captain Coal Crusher, Captain Etc., Captain Larry, etc.) but I'm not sure how that will go over with the military. Plus, people start calling you 'Cap' and that's no good.

Kinda run into the same problem with Doctor.

Thought for a while about going the 'Color' route. Maybe with an animal or animal part attached. (Red Talon, Black Cougar, Black Angel, Crimson Claw, Green Gopher, Sepia Nail, Red Fox, Blue Whale and so on) but I don't know. I've never known what color &quot;was me&quot; and never really cared. Plus, that kind of title’s going to limit your costume choices. (Christ, I haven't even come close to dealing with that yet.)

Mostly I want to pick a name that say's &quot;Hey! I got your back, Society!&quot; but also insinuates &quot;My wraith is terrible and my vengeance swift!&quot; It should also be something dark and brooding...&quot;tortured soul in a world he never made&quot; kinda flavor. Like Batman, only without the homosexual overtones. A name that say's &quot;Don't fuck with me when I'm Brooding in the shadows of the roof-top gargoyles in the pouring rain&quot;….but is also a green light to the ladies.

Crap, this hard. Maybe they have a &quot;Rooms To Go&quot; type dealie for super heroes. I'll google search it and get back to you.

Any more recommendations are welcomed, guys. And WarriorPoet, I'll take you up on your arch-nemesis offer. Let's get together soon for coffee and work out the details.
