Hazard is French in an another universe

if they adapt short stories from Magos there's one where they hunt a tyranid

small scale? imagine the cost of the Thracian Primaris triumph, but I guess they picked the best story to adapt

I kinda expected from the books for Dany to turn evil, or at least morally neutral, as Martin rarely writes pure good or evil characters (except Euron and Ramsay in later books), but the show simplified her and it seemed she'd turn out good then they had to do their ''subverted expectations''.

This is a minor problem, and the battle was way one-sided, but what about all other ruined characters, it's much worse with them, it started with Stannis, then Dorne, Arya's training was pathetic, Varys, Littlefinger, and Tyrion lost their intelligence which imo was the most interesting part of the show/books, Bran became boring which is quite an achievement for the most magical person in the world, Euron became a joke of a villain, not as intimidating as in the books, except when he had ballistae that could sink the Yamato. Jaime, in the end what's the point of him, what's the point of the Iron Bank, they've build up the Night King threat who doesn't even exist in the books, what for, etc. in the end most things don't make sense, the Dothraki and Unsullied resurrect themselves and King's Landing repairs itself when it's convenient. I liked the Clegane fight, and the build up to the battle of Winterfell, that's it.

ever since Ramsay's ''20 good men'' scene HBO should have hired new writers

I can't believe the story of ASoIaF ends like this

the writers turned it into some generic fantasy

The Faceless God is one of many avatars/masks of Nyarlathotep, it's very similar to the Many-Faced God the Faceless Men worship. I don't think they have a mortal boss, the Kindly Man or Jaqen, they are all ''no one''.

The World of Ice and Fire book added a lot of Lovecraftian places and stories to Essos.

that'd be interesting cause it's possible that the Faceless Boss is one of the forms of Nyarlathotep

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

best characters I've seen in a movie, fun, and cause of its music

this movie is not so bad compared to The Force Awakens and the prequels, even The Return of the Jedi

I watched this interesting podcast few days ago, Stamets explains how they created the mycellium drive

Luke's now like Jonny Marcone from Dresden Files

no, it's 13/25 episode


the show so far is great, it should last at least until


Earth's destroyed
after that I lost all interest

I liked it except the villain is ridiculous, even worse than Thanos the mad

cool, tough they shouldn't spoil so much in the trailer

he wrote more words on his blog than in TWOW

Archons are also from gnosticism, always wondered how are they connected

sort of post-human utopias or near utopias like the Culture, Jean le Flambeur series, the Golden Oecumene, the Commonwealth Saga

when the last adventure path is going to be announced?

from what I remember from the book it was obvious the author wanted it to be a film someday

Synthesist Summoner (something like this for a sorcerer or pact wizard)
Qinggong Monk
Monk of the Mantis
Halcyon Druid
Skirmisher ranger

I enjoyed reading Deadhouse Landing, mostly because of previous books, new stuff added on to that is not really impressive

I remember the first novel is different, noir-ish

I think it's the best Netflix show so far, only faults the fighting scenes aren't that interesting compared to Daredevil, and too bloody for my taste.

I waited for this kind of book since Sigil

I wish I stopped with this series at the end of A Storm of Swords, the books and tv episodes after ruins it mostly

from this year

NieR: Automata
Torment: Tides of Numenera

the Animorphs?

what happened before the battle has nothing to do with the quality of battle scenes, not to mention how irrelevant those ''battles'' at Meereen and Griffin Roost are for the main story

what battle scenes, I don't remember any from the last book, just some cliffhangers, you are saying the Battle of the bastards is far worse than those?

Endless Space 2 soundtrack

they need to change Fury's weapon, to a spiked chain or something

Nicomo Cosca (Abercrombie)
Cugel the Clever (Vance)
Tehol (Erikson)
Rodrick and Hrym (Pratt)
Hoid (Sanderson)
Gully Foyle (Bester)
Jalan (Lawrence)
Jean le Flambeur (Rajaniemi)
Varys (Martin)

Xanxost does not seem evil

This would be my favourite Marvel show if they had fighting scenes at least on the level of Daredevil, the main actor ruins it mostly, also the ending is ridiculous

Nostalgia for Infinity

I remember The elm-chanted forest was scary (when you're 4), and there was another similar film called The Wizard's Hat

other animated films I like are

The Congress
Waking Life
Mind Game
Space Pirate: Harlock

I think they should adapt everything except God-emperor of Dune, and try to incorporate some things from the Yodorowski's Dune

I'd change them to be mythic, not so above mortals

Out of the core 20 all seem ok to me

out of all Shub-Niggurath

there's an immortal ichor monster from Bestiary 4, an intelligent mass of blood from a dead evil deity

neutral planes have the caulborn and aeons

and dorvae from Bestiary 4 have snakes instead of tentacles

hope there will something about the engineers, cause this seems boring

With Tresspasser it's a great game, only boring if you try to collect stuff, and during that palace quest.

Alastair Reynolds - Terminal World

and Revenger by the same author, but not as good, it's similar to Aeronaut's Windlass by Butcher

Actually, it was another dude named Jack Vance. Gygax also copied the Vancian Magic System for D&D, and we still use it in Pathfinder.
As has already been said, I was referring to the alignment system, which Gygax created for AD&D, not the Jack Vance inspired magic system
And as I said (and was apparently misunderstood), I was saying Gygax did not come up with the alignment axes that D&D uses; he incorporated those concepts of Good vs Evil and Law vs Chaos from the same non-Gygaxian source from which he took the magic system.

only part that seems similar to Vance's books is when casters forget spells and need to memorize them again and again, I don't remember nothing about alignment, or any developed magical system

house Gixx of Absalom?
