Personally I'd love to see it done as an animation... not like Disney style or anything, but something more similar to Haibane Renmei, Paprika, Ghost in the Shell, or the Animatrix. Probably just because I love animation so much, but somehow I think it would work better than live action. I know that's not going to happen, though. :cry: It would take a seriously gutsy studio to produce PoN as a movie the way it deserves. Very much NC-17 material. (As far as the suggestion of David Lynch as a director--that would be [i:2g35yfoy]amazing[/i:2g35yfoy]. I don't think he'd have a problem with the subject matter at all, either.) view post

Well, as another writer on the forum I'll tell you ways I've come up with names... A lot of the time I base names off of a real-world name and modify it, since then it has a vowel/consonant pattern that's familiar and easier to remember. I also like to look up the meanings of names from around the world (baby name sites are good for that), and often I find just what I'm looking for in another language, or something I can modify from there. I also like knowing the meaning of related real-world names, since people might subconciously associate those meanings with a name that sounds similar. One example of that can be seen in PoN, actually... "Kellhus" is very similar to the name Kelly, which means "warrior"--appropriate for a Warrior-Prophet. I don't know whether that was intentional or not, but it certainly works. view post

I'm curious about this also... and how long was the Empress a skin-spy? I keep meaning to look back for clues about when she was replaced, but I haven't gotten to it yet. I wouldn't be surprised if it was about wanting Conphas as Emperor. Xerius wasn't exactly the most level-headed guy, they might have wanted someone more stable. view post
