  1. I’d say you have a problem if you don’t put 100+ hrs into an RPG. That problem being not you but the game.
  2. I still like the NJO stuff. Did not like LOTF near as much but EU’s last series FOTJ really was fairly solid and very interesting things were happening. i will never buy another SW book though. Not risking having another axe drop after 20 yrs and 1,000’s of $. oh and Resistance SUCKS! I don’t even recognize it as a Filoni project like TCW and Rebels. It is just dumb.
  3. Hmm I can’t really help with tips on how to approach his works. They most certainly require way more focus then your average book and you definitely have to be in the mood to give him that focus. Hell the only tip I could say is to use his death as motivation to try either one again asap while his passing is fresh. If your not in the mood for the Sci Fi of New Sun or the Fantasy of Wizard then I’d say to try his Latro books has a feel of Historical Fiction(though it’s not that) with a main character that has amnesia in Ancient Greece that writes and reads his daily journal which may sound boring AF but is anything but that. None of his books to me were any easier then the others to try, they all require that extra bit of focus devoted.
  4. Throughly gutted with a blown mind about Gene Wolfe dying. i won’t repeat the story but it’s rather freaky. It’s in Reading thread. I am so sad. Been dreading that news for about 10 yrs now. His work ain’t for everyone but if it was then you are feeling what I am feeling today.
  5. You have no idea. I can’t type my actual reaction to this heartbreak I woke up to on this forum, let’s say it contains a lot of Fbombs and tears. it was quite something that I happened to read exactly the 1st 2 pages around 11:50pm yesterday before putting it down for bed only to wake up and find I started this glorious reread on this word masters death day. So sad and freaky!
  6. It will be epic if we get an unblemished Palps(ugh since GL made the Force corruption null with that stupid lightning crap in Ep3) clone. Just Sith yellow eyes. Wow yes please
  7. Kudos to the effort of the thread but I myself really couldn’t get into or care about Bee/Fitz 7-9. I found them to be utter disappointments compared to how great Fitz 1-6 were. Fitz 1-9 are the only Hobb’s I’ve read. I was legit sad I had such a negative overall reaction to Fitz 7-9.
  8. Bought Nemisin’s Dreamblood duology and Licanus bks 1&2.
  9. Finished up Inheritance Omni. Took 73 days to get through that 1462pg(actually 1442 pg with a 20 pg Broken Earth excerpt) beast. ed: I have started Dreamblood. I think I will continue onwards till the end but I’m debating reading something else entirely starting tomorrow...idk maybe a Wolfe New Sun reread.
  10. Highly unlikely since it’s JJ lol i am much more excited for this compared to TFA though atleast
  11. Like what I’ve seen. Don’t like title but I think We ll see come Dec.
  12. Finished Inheritance 3 last night. Now just chipping away at the novella and this 1462 pg beast will be done.
  13. This will likely have a title and trailer today
  14. I thought it looked pretty dumb myself. Will be a Netflix or HBO watch for me. I’m not DC superfan so while I know Phoenix can do a disturbed character like Commodus I think he is to old to pull this role in an origin story. Maybe he is older in comics idk. Just seems off big time to me.
  15. The end of this 1462 pg beast Inheritance Omni is in sight. Around 200 left. Should just be a few more days to. I really want to take a Jemisin break and yet I also want to go get Dreamblood Duology to have ready to go after the last pg of this. Malazan reread through has really stalled but I have still maintained my reading something each day minus my 2 day brain fart back in late Jan messing up my consecutive days reading them since 4/25/17. On Dust of Dreams(9).
