I wrote the above in something of a bad mood with the novel.
I will endeavour to write something more constructive and thoughtful later.

James Jacobs has already written a Hobgoblin invasion AP and it was brilliant, despite the crowbarring in of all those dragon-ish beasties.

Check out Red Hand of Doom.

If you look in the mirror and say the city's name twice, the second time an exclamation, you might summon William Faulkner, a level 8 dread laureate.
However, if you do this it is unlikely that your story will end well.

Sarenrae sounds like "saren-rye".

I wonder if Gyr Gixx was a homage to Gary Gygax.

Sarenrae "searing ray" the light spells woman.

The god Nob ... Nog... ?? ... ugh, whatever, lets just call him Nobgobbler.

Yes, that has been confirmed as a genuine Gygax tribute.

Making it hard to pronounce is probably part of the tribute!

Arcadia bugs me.

I'm a student of Ancient History, and a lover of art filled with classical allusions.

As such, I have a very strong sense of what Arcadia represents.

From Wikipedia: "Arcadia (Greek: Ἀρκαδία) refers to an ancient civilization of pastoralism and harmony with nature. The Greek province of the same name is derived from it; Arcadia has developed into a poetic byword for a noble and peaceful wilderness. Arcadia is a poetic place associated with bountiful natural splendor and harmony.[1] The 'Garden' is often inhabited by shepherds. The place is also mentioned in Renaissance mythology.

The inhabitants were often regarded as having continued to live after the manner of the Golden Age.[2] It is also sometimes referred to in English poetry as Arcady. The inhabitants of this region are regarded as living close to nature, peaceful, and virtuous."

So, Arcadia is a mythical/fantasy place name.

And in Pathfinder it is a fantasy place name.

But of a very different place.

A really annoying choice.

It's like having a race of lizard people and calling them 'Ewoks'.

So jarring!

Can't stand Name of the Wind. Had at least four different friends whose reading tastes and intelligence I like and respect praise it to high heavens as the most amazing new fantasy in forever, so I went into it expecting something pretty good...

...and got something that reads like someone wrote up a novel starring their first RPG character. Wish-fulfilment Mary Sue doesn't even come close. Not only that, the prose is fecking AWFUL (he spends three pages describing what a certain type of silence sounds like), and Kvothe is just... intensely unlikable in every metric I can think of. I cannot fathom why anybody enjoys his character.

That silence bit is one page. One brilliant page. I adore it.

He writes elegant prose, a pleasure just to read many of his sentences.

Can't wait to play this campaign. I love playing LE characters the most, being that anti-hero sort of character is just always fun. Fun to play as Red X. "I don't like to play the hero...doesn't mean I don't know how."

An anti-hero is not necessarily a villain and/or evil. They can be Byronic, outsiders or simply incapable of standard heroism, like Hamlet.

While I am more on Berselius side of the fence about this whole thing, I understand why it is being attempted.

I do like the fact that the characters are not being called Evil Heroes or Anti-heroes but Villains.

Oddly, I'm having much the opposite reaction... I don't mind evil characters or campaigns, but I'm used to them being 'evil/anti heroes' rather than 'villains'. That is, I could see something like an evil character fighting to preserve Cheliax on the belief that order is preferable to chaos... but Lazzero just seems like a jerk. Mom and dad didn't understand him and other kids were mean? Boo frickin' hoo.

...And he was tempted by an evil god...

But, yeah, I don't think we're meant to feel sympathy for him.

He's a villain!

Answers to similar questions (and many others too) were provided in the Spamwar thread in this part of the messageboards ;-)

So, I read five pages. And used the search function when I got really bored.

Is it really just that this site has a link to the words 'game' and 'gaming'? And they're promoting gambling sites?

Christopher Tolkein is not thrilled with the films and is holding on to the rights to Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and his own Children of Hurin.

It's a shame Del Toro walked on this; it's a shame they turned one film into three.

That's not really a sensible comparison.

Geography is often misread here: the Falklands are a long way from Argentina, they are not 'naturally' part of any state.

The people who matter here, the Islanders, speak English and feel themselves to be British. The economy has, for generations, been supported by the UK with no expectation of benefit.

In a sense, colonising the Falklands has been a mistake but we have supported the place regardless.

Every so often they have a referendum to prove the obvious: the overwhelming majority of the islanders want to remain British.

I don't understand why LazarX has a problem with that?

It makes more sense for Alaska to join Canada and Hawaii to become an independent state than it does for Argentina to govern the Falklands. None of those things should happen though.
