Very nice. Just to be clear, this is entirely written by Wert from previous books and TGO, right? Only Bakker gave him some info about the locations and names of the Mansions?

I wouldn't be surprised given he dropped the Tusk bomb on Pat's blog, might as well unveil the rest about the Breaking of the Gates on Wert's. I kinda hope he won't though. I liked how the account of the Cuno-Inchoroi Wars came after TTT confirms that the Inchoroi are irrevocably damned aliens seeking to close off the outside. I feel like you gotta time these encyclopedia bits after they've been given some significance in the main story.

Lol - indeed. We'll see, I guess. There's enough information out there, I think, to write a decent essay without doing something like that?

You'd have to ask Wert to clarify but I believe that to be the case. I think Bakker was impressed with Wert's "maps" post.

A very nice summary from wert. It is a simple but effective way to hype me senseless for the upcoming book!

Yeah Wert has done a great job with these. It must be quite challenging to get it right. I doubt i could do it. :)

Over on TPB he's expressing some hesitancy with the Apocalypse.

Kudos to him for wanting to get it right.

EDIT: I wonder if he'd consider coming here.

He's on other blogs or forums, so of course, why not here :P. I noticed no mention of this place in the acknowledgements/credits  ;).

Who would consider coming here?

Thats a genuine question, not me making a joke about no one would come here.

Wert usually posts on other forums (besides westeros) just to promote Bakker or his own blog. There is no need for him to do that here.

Good point. We don't need any more Bakker advertisements around here.


But, you know, anything to make this place in particular seem legitimate.

I agree, having Wert and Pat post here would bring more traffic, I'd assume.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,
