Welcome! Please Read. posted 20 January 2004 in Author Q &amp; AWelcome! Please Read. by Wil, Head Moderator

Welcome to the Q &amp; A forum! Soon after this site was started, I received an e-mail from R. Scott Bakker saying that he was willing to come in and answer some questions that we all may have. Now, I don't know of many authors that are willing to do this, and I know that I am very greatful. So ask your questions here. view post

I voted "other" because, well, I created this site <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post


Construction posted 24 January 2004 in General AnnouncementsConstruction by Wil, Head Moderator

The site is currently under construction; we are re-designing the color scheme and icons etc... So any odd color things are just us! Continue posting as normal.

Also, we are re-doing all the icons, so that is why they look so tacky! view post


Language posted 26 January 2004 in Author Q &amp; ALanguage by Wil, Head Moderator

Does it have it's own grammar then, different tenses? Would it be more comparable to a latin based language, or something more like English? or is it all it's own?

Also, does it have it's English letter representation? Like does "Cu'jara Cinmoi" mean somting in Keneic? view post


Men v. Nonmen posted 27 January 2004 in Author Q &amp; AMen v. Nonmen by Wil, Head Moderator

Alright, this has been eating at my mind for a while.

In the "Languages" thread, you said that Cu'jara Cinmoi was a Nonman king. I am still confused as to the difference between Men and Nonmen. Could you shed some light on this issue? view post


Men v. Nonmen posted 29 January 2004 in Author Q &amp; AMen v. Nonmen by Wil, Head Moderator

Thanks for the re-cap, it helped a lot!

I understand perfectly that you don't want to reveal anything too soon. It is the one flaw with this process. Please feel free at anytime to give us a nice RAFO (Read and find out). After all, we're just glad that you stop by. view post

Question to R.S. regarding release dates. posted 02 February 2004 in Author Q &amp; AQuestion to R.S. regarding release dates. by Wil, Head Moderator

Welcome Mith! Glad that you could come to our site! We are ever eager for new members.

I know I am not the author, (Rest assured, he does stop by here almost everday) but if you don't mind, I will answer the questions that I know.

I recently asked Scott as to the release of the Warrior Prophet. He was suprised when he learned that the date had changed on the Penguin website, and he assured me that he would get to the bottom of this hopefully by tomorrow.

As to the title of the third book, I beleive that The Thousandfold Thought, is at the top of the title list.

Again, welcome to the site and I would encourage you to go and introduce yourself in the "Welcome" forum! view post


Touring posted 02 February 2004 in Author Q &amp; ATouring by Wil, Head Moderator

Are you going to be doing any touring for the WP release? how bout the US or UK release of TDTCB.

If so, is there any chance we could convince you to come to Washington? view post


Best character posted 02 February 2004 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeBest character by Wil, Head Moderator

This is a really hard question. They are all so well written, but I would have to say Esmenet is my favorite character. I've always had a soft spot for the "Unfortunate" characters. There is something about them that justifies everything that they do, because the have had such a horrible life. view post


kellhus == good guy?? posted 03 February 2004 in The Darkness That Comes Beforekellhus == good guy?? by Wil, Head Moderator

I too have the feeling that Kellhus isn't the person we think he is.

He's a little too callus and manipulative to be the archtypical "good guy". But who knows what purpose he will serve in the end. view post

Question to R.S. regarding release dates. posted 03 February 2004 in Author Q &amp; AQuestion to R.S. regarding release dates. by Wil, Head Moderator

I just received information from Scott saying that May 20 looks like the release date. Slightly better then June, eh? view post


Question to R.S. regarding release dates. posted 03 February 2004 in Author Q &amp; AQuestion to R.S. regarding release dates. by Wil, Head Moderator

May 20 is what the Author knows, hopefully it's right. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

I would say May 20 is most likely the most accurate. view post

On The Warrior Prophet posted 12 February 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionOn The Warrior Prophet by Wil, Head Moderator

I must admit that this is all a new concept to me.

You've mentioned things off-handedly that I've never even considered.

I've never considered science as an "unraveling character".

Personally I am agnostic. It doesn’t make sense that there is nothing out there, but I just haven’t figured out what it is yet. It seems to me that if God really did want all of us to believe him and join his True Church (Whatever it may be) the skies would open and a loud, thundering voice would say "HELLO, HERE I AM".

I was raised LDS (Latter-Day Saint AKA Mormon), but many of the beliefs that were given to me were contradictory and just seemed wrong. Anyway, I love reading all this new information on a subject I've never carefully considered, and I encourage you to get all of your "writing need" out right here on the board. It's fascinating. view post


What are you most looking forward to? posted 14 February 2004 in Author Q &amp; AWhat are you most looking forward to? by Wil, Head Moderator

I want to learn more about the Magic of the land. Also, the whole Kellhus is something I want to see! view post


On The Warrior Prophet posted 27 February 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionOn The Warrior Prophet by Wil, Head Moderator

Except for the fact that the Human brain is more developed then most other animals (except primates, dolphins etc.) So from an evolutionary stand point, it makes perfect sense. The human brain is capable of choice, we are able to overcome our most natural instincts. We are able to think about and change the world we live in. Most other animals cannot to the extent we can. I feel that it is the fact that we have the consequences of our decisions that put us where we are. An ant doesn't feel the consequences of it's decision to build the mound here or there, but we as humans (and the higher animals) do. This to me is what proves that evolution is true, because you can look at the different parts of the Human brain and see all past brains. view post


On The Warrior Prophet posted 27 February 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionOn The Warrior Prophet by Wil, Head Moderator

Then how can you argue right and wrong?

If we have no choice, and everything is "a very complex cause-effect reaction system" then how can anything be wrong? Why should I be blamed if I choose to kill someone? It wasn't my choice. I had to do it, my neurons made me! That is the hole in the argument, in my opinion. How can there be moral codes? How can a person be expected to do something, when they have no control? view post


Stephen Erikson's Books posted 08 March 2004 in Literature DiscussionStephen Erikson's Books by Wil, Head Moderator

I recently started Gardens of the Moon by Stephen Erikson, and I"m about 150 pages into it. My question is whether this is the first book (I saw no book order when I bought them) and if it is, do things get more explained (ie magic, the Deck of Dragons etc.)? I would appreciate it if this remained a NON-SPOILER thread. view post
