I just started watching Westworld.   Fucked up show but seems pretty interesting so far

Kerbal space program.  And I hate it.

The Gap Cycle is probably my favorite series, definitely my most read.  Donaldson in my opinion has an excellent grasp of the human psychology and does well to try to make the reader understand why it is that "bad" people do the terrible things they do.  That is one thing I find missing in The Seventh Decimate.  The characters seem flat and the story is so far quite generic.  (Potential spoiler) the main character has such a fierce hatred for sorcery that it seems blatantly obvious to me that he probably becomes some kind of super sorcerer.

First of all I will say that I find Donaldsons writing in this book rather weak compared to his other works.  As if it were more aimed at juvenile readers.

(Mild spoilers)

Although it is interesting to have firearms in a fantasy setting, while everyone else is stuck using medieval technology, to introduce a breach loaded, clip fed, bolt action rifle that was developed in secret was much too far fetched for me.  Like we are looking at 400+ years of technological development done by a handful of guys in a few decades just working out of that back room over there.  We will just skip over the Renaissance AND the industrial revolution, with NONE of the necessary tech required trickling down into your civilization.  Why not use some of the machines that would be mandatory for rifle constructuon to manufacture some farming equipment to aid your impoverous and starving nation?  Although it was a good idea to invent rifle tech as a super weapon to kill wizards, you know what would have been a superior super weapon?  ARTILLERY!

Crabby, although is a full blood Dunyain, was never conditioned.  He received half assed training by a lone Dunyain, while on the run, would be shoddy at best.  Kellhus had 20+ years to prepare for his final showdown.  I doubt that Mog will hang out waiting for Junior to get his shit together.

I enjoyed it.  Clearly not the end of the story.  Now I knew this before I finished, and I can see how it may have been upsetting to anyone that was unaware.

If it is made into TV, I pray it doesn't go as badly as Sword of Truth/Legend of the Seeker.

If it does there may be a Third Apocalypse

I'm not sure if I understand the nature of this thread, but if it helps here's my 50 cents...

I have found, in my 20+ years of experience on the internet, that people need to understand that text is the second most primitive form of communication.  The lack of emotion is extremely limiting and someone can read whatever "tone" they subconsciously want into It, depending on their own mood at the time.

The difference between "fuck you man" and "fuck you man :)" is enormous.

I now also have a heat press, so I (technically) can now do sublimation heat transfers on a flat garment, once I figure out how to do it.  And I have a cap driver to embroider hats.

Started watching first episode with the old lady.  Then I secretly downloaded the whole season and watched it all when she wasn't looking.

I am not a prophet, just a man like all of you.  I do actually happen to be a prince of a land so far away that none of you could possibly disprove my claim.

This thread is semi old, but if anyone is interested, I own a commercial grade embroidery machine.  Embroidered goods retail for ridiculous prices, unless you are buying 100s, but I can make shit for much cheaper than going to the "pros"

like my shit on facebook.  DO IT.
