"The Magician" by Ęther Realm. This song always reminds me of Kellhus and his shenanigans.   

"Alone on the ancient mountaintop
Stood the one who had lost his way
For when you walk on the path of a traitor
You will find you may soon be betrayed
Stray not from the path you've chosen
You may yet find what you seek
You will learn to command the ethereal realm
And fulfill your destiny
Cast out of his land for reaching for that which lies out of mortal sight
Like a beast he is feared and hunted
Like a beast he intends to fight
Stay true to your heart young warrior
Keep your sword close by your side
And when night comes again beware what the darkness hides
Go now to the realm of spirits child
You are running out of time
Seek quickly the one who will guide you
Who will teach you the way of light
Doubt not your resolve young wanderer
May your stride be swift and true
For the colors of day are fading away
And tonight they will come for you
No amount of work or training
Can prepare you for the changing winds
But don't despair my child
You must fight
Take hold of strength divine
Shape the world to your design
And release the power you keep inside your heart
I am the light when a life's at its end
The still burning candle when darkness descends
I am desire, warmth from the fire
fueling your steps when your journey began
I am the fear twisting tight round your throat
The life giving spark hiding deep in your soul
I am your aura, hunger for honor
I hold the power you seek
Eeeeyuh
A fire arose behind his eyes
The trees, like torches, blazed up in the night
The fire raced across the sky
The trees like torches
Like torches blazed with light
And now they're on the run
No mercy smite them one by one
You've got an axe to grind
Relentless, no one left behind
Immolation is their fate
Hunt them down and let them feel your hate
No cowards left alive
By your power they will die
And now they're on the run
No mercy smite them one by one
You've got an axe to grind
For the fire of your soul
Is a terror to behold
No amount of work or training
Can prepare them for their flaming end
But don't hold back my child
They must die
Take hold of strength divine
Shape the world to your design
And release the power you keep inside your heart"

Just commenting to declare that I have joined the slog! Just started today, I'll be caught up before chapter 6's discussion. I was confused about a few details in my first read-through, so nitpicking through every word of every book with the finest toothed comb imaginable sounds like a blast honestly. so I'm excited to join you all. IT'S GONNA BE A REAAAAAAALLL CHOPPER! EH, KIAMPAS?! KIAMPAS?

General Earwa / Tips for starting reread?

Hello all. It's been a while since I've been actually active (I occasionally pop on just because I have y'all bookmarked) but I recently convinced someone to start PoN and it got the nostalgia goin', so I decided it's finally time to do my first reread. I only finished TUC last summer, but I'm an impatient man you see. So I'm looking for advice for my second run-through. Is there something I should keep an eye out for? Or a certain perspective I should have going in? I know a lot of you have read through TSA more times than I could in a decade, so what has made a reread more interesting? Or should I try and forget everything I know about Earwa and keep a clean slate. Let me know your thoughts and experiences!

Yeah, I always think permadeath playthroughs sound super fun, and then I die 5 minutes in...

great example, Wilshire, I'm a big Dishonored fan. I also find myself quicksaving in Skyrim or Fallout before I do anything interesting. Speech skill checks, fights, decisions, big purchases, etc. There's no way to regret anything in those games. What's the point of role-playing if you can't make mistakes? Especially in KC:D where you can fuck up literally anything. Trying to sharpen your sword? Aww you sharpened at the wrong angle and fucked the sword into oblivion and back. Makes me cautious of everything I do. And I feel like if I lived in Medieval Europe, that's what I would be like. Scared out of my mind about everything I do because I'll probably get myself killed. Immersion through fear, I love it!

Also, update on Kingdom Come: Deliverance. I'm about 12 hours in now. Great Old-school style RPG. The hud and UI look right out of Oblivion. Seems fairly historically accurate (although I'm no expert on 1400s Bohemia) So far loving it, very story-based, with good characters, writing, and choice. It's buggy as all hell right now, but hopefully that'll get patched. Don't even try to off-road with your horse, you'll just break shit. The save system is frustrating (sleep or drink a certain alcoholic beverage to save) but it's a welcome frustration, makes me more wary to enter battle with multiple or well armed foes. All in all I think it's a good game so far, I recommend it to any harcore RPGers. KC:D definitely does not hold your hand, but it's balanced.

I'm a Battlefield 1 junkie on Xbone, would love to play with some cool TSA folks if such a soul exists. I do play other games but not much MP aside from BF1.

My gamertag is TRUTH SHINES
Damn, would love to, but I'm a PS4 guy :-\

Anybody playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance yet? I don't have a huge amount of time on my hands nowadays, but if this game lives up to the hype I will play the shit out of it. Let me know what you think of it so far!

I love when people say something expected, and then turn it on its head. Bakker does this well (as he should, what is philosophy if not just turning normal shit into mind-breaking shit)

The equalization of students kinda sucks both ways. There's people like you who were held back from their potential, and there are kids that are more intellectually challenged (not just talking about mental illness, or even ADHD, etc.) who have a harder time processing information and need more time or energy to learn a given subject. The way we put all students on an equal playing field hurts both sides, only benefitting the less and less common 'average' student. The question is how students can be split up by a means other than just age, without making the 'lesser' students be forgotten or branded as "stupid", etc. That's my personal opinion. You may notice I often comment on the suckage of modern american or world culture, yet almost never actually have a solution  ;D

Fair enough. Sadly, our public school system based on Ishual. Shame.
