posted 22 May 2006, 16:05 in Literature DiscussionNeeding some good suggestions. by sunnKHANN, Peralogue

When I finish a good book, I like to wind down with something short, fast and nasty. When she's not around, I read Conan. :lol: I feel bad now :oops: But really, R.E.H is good, under-rated. It's an enjoyable, fast read, with little characterisation and violence. Perfect. Alternatively, you could read... Gemmell is ok, though I find after reading 'PoN', I can't get back into his work. :? I don't know then. :lol: view post

Paradise Lost posted 25 May 2006, 16:05 in Literature DiscussionParadise Lost by sunnKHANN, Peralogue

Anyone else ever read this? I've read it once before, and I'm just about to start again. It's great, [i:45n6y92g]I [/i:45n6y92g]think, and really challenged me to change my opinion on poetry. The lack of rhyme and the reliance on rhythm, meter and syntax to keep the flow of the poem going is brilliant. view post

[quote="BankytheHack":1vbd949u]Wondering if anyone had read of Howard's work especially his "Conan" stories? Thanks![/quote:1vbd949u] I haven't read anything other than the 'Conan' stories...but they are stunning on their own. Truly, Howard's Hyperborian age is strikingly realistic, and under-rated due to the 'Conan' being tarred with the 'brainless dolt' brush. view post

[quote="gierra":1wkuw667]i have it at home, always meant to read it, but never got around to it.. eventually i will.[/quote:1wkuw667] I recommend it, it's really good. Hard to read sometimes, and lengthy, but definately worth it. view post


Re: Thanks posted 26 May 2006, 15:05 in Literature DiscussionRobert E. Howard by sunnKHANN, Peralogue

[quote="BankytheHack":21c9vpvm]Thanks for the opinions. I'd recently become quite fascinated with Howard and his work simply because of the life the man led. He truely was one of those "weird" eccentric writers everyone dreams up with thinking of pulp horror/fantasy writers. As stated above, it is striking to see Conan's portrayl from the original Howard stories to the way Arnold brought him to life. Arnold's Conan certainly wasn't an idiot, but nor was he totally believeable as a man who would some day be a great king. I guess that was more Milius' fault than Arnold's although I do enjoy the first "Conan" movie quite a bit.[/quote:21c9vpvm] 1st 'Conan' film is always great for a laugh, I just love it! R.E.H- a great loss. His life is very interesting, as you say. Too bad he went as he did. view post

posted 07 Jun 2006, 10:06 in The Thousandfold ThoughtCnaiur by sunnKHANN, Peralogue

[quote="Dragyn":1t3f5y4g]Even if the "final swazond" Cnaiur made was to slit his own throat, what would stop the Consult from bringing him back as a skin-spy or some other Tekne creation? We already know they have amazing physical speed/power, so wouldn't that plus Cnaiur's natural abilities combine to form someone definitely fit to be a Consult General? Also, since Moenghus was what was basically Cnaiur's sole motivation, by killing him wouldn't Cnaiur become a "self-moving soul"? It's more likely the trauma and confusion would stay with and motivate him beyond Moenghus' death, but I like to think there'll be somebody out there to foil Kellhus' plans...[/quote:1t3f5y4g] Just finished 'TTT', and I was wondering about Cnaioor myself. Throughout the books, he was one of those characters that just grabbed my attention, and an interesting foil to Kellhus. I wouldn't say I [i:1t3f5y4g]liked[/i:1t3f5y4g] him; I pitied him, and I thought he was one of the best [i:1t3f5y4g]written[/i:1t3f5y4g] characters, the depths of his madness being believable and thankfully not characitured. I believe we will see him again, perhaps ressurected as some Consult savant. Now that he is without a point of reference and has surrendered all sanity and care, I think he'd be a perfect general for the uncaring No-God... view post

[quote="anor277":1yro1cwg]Just on the topic of Cnaiur. While I agree he is a brilliantly written, original character - a mad, ballbreaking bull fag - I think it's a bit hard to accept that he will be revived. Why should the Consult do it? He has knowledge (some) of Kellhus and Moenghus, but then so did Serwe and Esmenet and Achamian - Achamian might even give the Consult that knowledge [i:1yro1cwg]gratis[/i:1yro1cwg] now. As a warrior, Cnaiur was prodigious, but as a general Skauras tricked him beautifully and his only value to Kellhus was to teach him warfare, and Kellhus rapidly assimiliated Cnaiur's knowledge and surpassed his teacher.[b:1yro1cwg] So I don't think there is much percentage in giving Cnaiur a Consult army, even if the Consult can preserve him.[/b:1yro1cwg][/quote:1yro1cwg] Sranc though, are expendable, to a point, are they not? I think I just want him kept. He was endearing, in his own mad way. view post


Akka posted 08 Jun 2006, 15:06 in The Thousandfold ThoughtAkka by sunnKHANN, Peralogue

Right, no fancy introduction post, I'm not feeling up to it. :lol: Just, in general, where do we think Akka is going to go now? He's an outcast, a Wizard, and has refused his wife and his Prophet. However, he should still have the Seswathan Homonculus locked into his [wherever: soul/subconcious], so I don't see how he could possibly turn to the Consult? view post

Seswatha's Dreams, if nothing else, are his constant reminder of the unspeakable evil the Consult can work if they do succeed again. That sort of prejudice would be nigh-impossible to change, even if the Consult were openly working against Kellhus. To me, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" just doesn't seem to fit here.[/quote:3nq9e8h9] Agreed (why I made a seperate thread, I don't know :oops: ). I hope Akka is going to be portrayed in an interesting way- judging ffrom the rest of the series, I'll allow myself blind faith that he will be. I don't want him to turn into the boring 'twisted, rejected' type of bad guy. :cry: Poor Akka. I really pity him. view post

[quote="Harrol":1raybqwj]What I really liked about the series is cnauir's observations of Kellhus manipulating people. I also found it funny when he called Akka a woman hearted baffoon. By the way i really like Akka but it was still funny.[/quote:1raybqwj] I think a lot of Cnaioor's observations were humourous. His outright rudeness to the Inrithi was just brilliant. view post

[quote="Harrol":1qfqrttz]I know this has been stated before and I agree with the thought. Akka will be the Seswatha of the second apocalypse.

[quote="Zarathinius":2mifvgrd]I've told plenty of people about it, but I don't know if any of them have actually picked it up. Now that I think about it, the reasons I like the series so much are the same reasons most of my peer group (ages 15-17) avoids books. Anything requiring more than 60 seconds of thought seems to give most teenagers hives. Curse their tiny attention spans... :x </bitterness towards peers> But anyway, I can't wait until the United Spades of Amerika lightens up about "mature themes" in school. Then they'll put the PoN on every school's reading list...Bwahahaha... :twisted: Or maybe not.[/quote:2mifvgrd] I'd prefer not to study the PoN, even given the chance.

[quote="Brys":3v78ri1e]I've read his Conan stories, and while Howard was a skilful writer, I didn't think they were that great, and I got really put off by the overt racism and misogyny in them.

[quote="Brys":1gun9aui]I think Gemmell's written some novels that were entertaining and not badly written, but after a while they get repetitive and while he may at his best be competent, he isn't spectacular, while the earlier sword+sorcery authors tended to be excellent. Howard might some times have objectionable content in his writing, but the writing itself is of a high quality.[/quote:1gun9aui] 'Legend' I can still read, it was a brilliant book, in my humble opinion, but the others were very repetitive, barring the other series he did which I still love, Jon Shannow (though even it bows toward the end). view post

I'll save the Rod of Tiger for later. I can't be bothered typing it out right now... However, I shall tell you of a most glorious pairing, that of Atali Scathhach and Ginkle Gnomregon (formerly Gnomey-Gnome). A Drow sorceress and a Gnome wizard. It shouldn't have happened- but it did. And it was glorious. If difficult. You see, Atali and Ginkle were imprisoned by another, more powerful player character, for crimes against his state. (Maybe we insulted his character, maybe we held him back from his goal, but it was in the name of love! The other character [i:f3fp91sz]was[/i:f3fp91sz] a vampire intent on world domination after all...). And now the squishy bit... Imprisoned in seperate cells, and lacking powerful magic between them, Atali and Ginkle make use of the Guard's stupidity to trick him into leaving the room and make sweet, height-impeded love to each other. Through the bars. Ten minutes later, Ginkle is taken out of the cell, to fight his arch rival Avrilet in single combat at the command of the vampire. Atali cries, but she too is dragged out of her cell, and brought to a box in the arena to watch her lover die. But wait! With his powers restored, Ginkle is able to teleport out of the arena?! No, no he isn't. Don't be stupid. However, whilst slain, his hand is whole, and becomes a powerful artefact, until the time of his resurrection many years later. Atali, seeing Ginkle die, leaps into the arena, but seeing death is inevitable if she fights, flees into an extradimensional mansion, and there gives birth to her litter of Spider-Gnomes, having received the blessing of Lloth. [size=75:f3fp91sz]Note: I was Atali. Also, the player whom Ginkle was answerable to was the most homophobic person I have ever met, so it was impressive that he could roleplay that.[/size:f3fp91sz] view post
