TV Series?

From what I understand Extract is the unofficial follow-up to Office Space. Not sure where I heard that.

Yeah, it's on HBO.  Mike Judge created.  Has a lot of the Office Space feel, but updated to 'now' if you will.
No whistling on the slog!

Excellent. Looks like a short series to consume too.

Though, my book-reading is set to skyrocket soon; though, I'm not necessarily a quick reader.

Way off topic, but in direct relation to your last comment, if you liked Office Space, you should check out Silicon Valley.  Fkn hilarious.

In the queue!  And Extract too!

Anyone have insight on why Iothiah seems to so important for the Yatwerians AND home of the witches?  Can't be a coincidence!

If the Cult of Yatwer was largely based there, then Iothiah may have already functioned as a sort of "women's center" on a cultural level. In which case placing the only school of witches there would just be keeping with tradition.

Is it strange that the cult is there despite Fanim rule?

Idk why i didn't notice before, but Psatma banishes the false oracle because Nanaferi occupies the office of Oracle for Yatwer.

In this part, its mentioned about the attempted assassination from the Anagkians--perhaps the whole thing was cooked up by Kellhus or Maithanet to give them the excuse to kill the cults leaders.

It's not really strange. The other people's of the Three Seas were bewildered by how tolerant the Fanim were of Inrithi in their lands before the Holy War began. Pilgrims walked to Shimeh through their empire on the regular and were never molested, and the Holy War itself encounters a number of Inrithi within Kianene territory that had been living there unconverted ever since the Nansur first lost the territory.

Also I can see all sorts of fake Chorae scams (Tears of God=splinters of the True Cross).  Sleight of hand switches or sucker moves to bait the mark into bringing money to where he can be robbed ("I represent a family that would rather their declining fortunes isn't made public.  They are willing to sell one of their chorae, if the right price can be reached")
