question about the Schools posted 06 Sep 2004, 20:09 by Grantaire, Moderator

How many sorcerors are there in each of the schools? Is it that number that determines the "power" of the school? Since in TDTCB, it is said that the Scarlet Spires are the most powerful school, but is that based on their numbers, or on the knowledge they possess, in which case it would seem the Mandate would be more powerful..hrm, muddled thoughts. What are the capabilities of sorcerors? We know already that they can take out a can of whupass on soldiers with lots of flames and such, but what are the more creative things they can do? Thanks :) view post

Another bump and grind answer is all I can give, I'm afraid. Every detail in its season! :wink: view post

I think there's a thread kicking around somewhere on the constructive uses of frustration in storytelling... :wink: view post

Hey, if a philosophy professor can write a kickass fantasy series, I'm damn well sure a high school student can too! Oh yeah, you said that you kicked around writing TDTCB for 15 or so years, didn't you? It's a good thing that was the first book, you don't seem to be turning into a Jordan or Martin yet. Let's just hope it's not 5 or so years for TTT :wink: view post
