re: Readers: Starting an Ongoing Fantasy Epic? - auyushu
[quote]Chronicles of the Black Company compendium by Gken Cook is a great complete set that is set in a larger world of many more books. But that's a complete trilogy. [/quote] Great series, and the original trilogy makes for a good series on it's own. Mark Lawrence is another good author in...

[quote]Have you read "Elantris" as well? [/quote] I haven't read that one or his Steelheart series, though the Steelheart ones are sitting on my kindle to read eventually. I'd agree with Alloy being better than Shadows of self, Shadows is just slightly less of a complete book. Bands of Mourni...

[quote]I really wanted to like Dresden, and I really just didn't.[/quote] How far did you read them? Really doesn't get really good until book 4, then it takes off like a rocket. But if you didn't like the character of Dresden at all, wouldn't really matter I suppose....

[quote]I mentor at a school in the local ghetto. I had a student. Bright enough and engaging. But very odd.[/quote] Yup, as a teacher I've come across a few students here and there that I wonder if I'll be seeing a news special about down the road. There are generally signs for these types of kid...

re: Readers: Starting an Ongoing Fantasy Epic? - auyushu
[quote]Well, I will argue that these books are awesome. [/quote] I'm big on characters and plot. Mistborn doesn't have really great characters, and the plot is so so. Good world building though, and Sanderson does magic systems better than anyone. Just not a top tier series for me, though I enj...

re: The ATL Offseason Thread - auyushu
[quote]We are going to spend like crazy after July 2. It will mostly be on international talent as well. The FA class next season is terrible. [/quote] Yeah, I know, it's actually the fact that we are going nuts spending that makes me wonder about us signing him. I figure Lazarito will get at l...

[quote]As long as your are grouping Paradise Valley and Cave Creek in there too. [/quote] Surprise ,Deer Valley, and Anthem are fine too, just way the hell out there and mainly residential. It's mainly just the inside the 101 areas on the west side (Glendale, Peoria, Phoenix) that are ghetto. ...

[quote]If I recall, his plan for The Stormlight Archive is ten books. One group of five, then a second group of five set at a later date or something like that. Which "finish" will you wait for? Ha.[/quote] The 10 books is what I meant. I've already been through that crap with reading Wheel of Ti...

re: **Official Fallout 4 Thread** (Links and videos in OP) - auyushu
[quote]I guess some of the fans of deep immersion might like these options but overall, as you said, it would just be a bit tedious. [/quote] Yeah, I play on survival now as is, but I might bounce back down to very hard if they make those changes. Just don't really see the enjoyment factor....

re: **Official Fallout 4 Thread** (Links and videos in OP) - auyushu
[quote] Apparently similar difficulty modes on past games actually requires the player to sleep, eat, drink to survive. They may be adding that in to that difficulty mode now. [/quote] I actually hated this aspect in the past Fallout games with survival mode. I just wanted a harder game, not ext...

re: Readers: Starting an Ongoing Fantasy Epic? - auyushu
I think the main issue with a long epic like that by Sanderson is how many balls he has in the air at any given time. Dude has too many series in the air at a time. I read the first book of that series and enjoyed it, but I'm going to wait until he finishes it to read the rest. I dig the hel...

[quote]You mean TOR guys? I would be very surprised if guys like Wisler and Blair are not serviceable big league starters. [/quote] Very high floor guys for sure, unlikely they don't at least become solid #3 starters. But we'll need Newcomb/Fried/Allard to hit for TOR arms (or our #3 pick this...

re: The Expanse - auyushu
[quote] I did not know that even existed. I must have been out of country at that time or something. I'll have to check it out - and thanks. [/quote] You should if you dig the Expanse. It's more real sci fi in nature. Not a western in space like Firefly or a fantasy/space opera like Farscape (whi...
