I'm glad you made your way to the forum Oberstul, sorry it probably took several days of waiting to get membership approval. Anyway, welcome to the forum!

Btw, its probably worth pointing out this particular thread, and the subforum its within, has fairly limited spoiler tags. There are places where spoilers are tagged more judiciously, and they are based on whichever subfoum you're currently in. Generally speaking, we expect a subforum for a particular book to have spoiler tags for anything beyond that book. Meaning in The Warrior Prophet boards (located here: The Warrior-Prophet should have spoilers for anything located in Thousandfold Thought and beyond.

So if you're new to the series ... tread carefully. Probably safest to mention in posts that you're still reading, if you're asking any questions.

FWIW, I doubt there are any references or nods to ASOIAF in TSA. Most references come from real-world history, religion, and philosophy. You'll find a lot of rabbit holes to get lost in if you start looking. Names, places, characters, symbols, etc., in TSA you can usually find a wikipedia page related to them that is tied back to something obscure IRL.

UPDATE!

Ok, hard to believe, but I actually by chance ( well, by my social media scanning effort ) connected with someone close with the Darkness Sabotage Kickstarter and they shared a lot of helpful information on what happened and current status. This individual appears legitimate, but can't say anything in the disembodied reality commonly known as the internet is 100% bonafide. Regardless, I'm satisfied with the information and calling off any of you getting your shhhoottgguunnss in order. Thank you for your kind consideration and here's hoping the Dez-ster gets back up off the mat and finishes this thing off.

Hiya. New member here that recently started the... SLOG (I think that's what you call it) - so I'm extremely grateful that you are marking all spoilers. Props to that.

Anyway, maybe others mentioned this, I didn't notice, but do you think the reference in this chapter to the "Red Lion of Saubon or the Black Stag of Gothyelk" are a courtesy nod to George R R Martin's Song of Ice and Fire? I mean, I know that Lannister's lion is golden yellow on their flag and not red, but the Baratheon's stag is indeed black too.

That was my 2 cents, guys.

Thanks to TheCulminatingApe for keeping these synopsis chapters going.
Cheers!

Today humanity, as never before, is split into two apparently irreconcilable halves. The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves.

C.G. Jung -Aion, Researches Into the Phenomenology of The Self

Written in 1950, this is still just as relevant, if not more so, today...

Watched Mandy. Pretty good, not amazing. Very nice coloring throughout the movie. Nice aesthetics all around. Good performances by the various actors.

I actually have a thread on this exact topic I'm working on but still haven't finished (it's gargantuan), but one of the things I've considered.....
That, sir, is what's known in the broadcasting biz as a "deep tease"! Can't wait!!

So you want me to go knock on his door and ask him what's happening with the start up, as someone posted his address online.  He'll fucking shoot me probably.

The guys name is Dez Oku, which seems made up by a lazy person to me.

The Merchant! I knew you would save me - you courageous fellow! That's right, you got it - knock on that fucker's door and ask him when he's going to deliver this goddamn game! I believe in you, brother. Take this piece of shit out! And yes, appears Dez is his name - the piece of shit was all over town when he was shopping his game, and then boo hoo, people died and goes radio silent - could be worse, he could be stuck in Earwa. Bull ... SHIT, I tell you! Bull shit. Don't be a pussy, Merchant and just get in your fucking car and drive over there - if you're too "busy", then get Bakker to fucking do it ... he ain't writing so has a lot of free time on his hands, I reckon. Anyways, fuck him, this adventure has you written all over it, Merchant! Stock up your hardware, if you have to and have Reservoir Dogs playing in your car and get er' done! You're awesome, I love ya. Now do it!

Funniest rant from the great TaoHorror in awhile!

Hey, I'd do the job myself, but we Amikans* now need a freaking passport to "visit" Canada. Effing bullshit!

*"Seventh Decimate" reference! (see Stephen R. Donaldson thread)

Not everybody can handle the slog ;)
