The folks over at r/bakker are embarking on their own re-read right now, at a pace of two chapters a week, led by the intrepid and merciless (actually seems quite nice) jjhoho. Join them if you dare, it's nice to see a different crowd reading and there seem to be some first-timers following along.

No fancy link because I'm lazy: https://www.reddit.com/r/bakker/comments/5ij999/reread_the_darkness_that_comes_before_prologue/

Shame Bakker never did that AMA.

It would be interesting reading a first timer thoughts.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

This is awesome. Going to do at least mild lurking.

It'd be interesting to read but I literally cannot comprehend the post structure of Reddit.  I actually get a headache just trying.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

There are those from other forums who say the same about this place.

No doubt in my mind.  I was born and raised, so to speak, on phpBB boards though, so this all makes sense intuitively at this point.

I'm sure there are kids on Reddit for whom the structure makes perfect sense, but I am definitely not one of those kids.

I think we picked up a couple of new members from there already.  Hopefully we can nab a few more and get a few more threads rolling.
