PostForum: The First and Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant   Posted: Sat Jan 14, 2017 3:21 am   Subject: What If Hile Troy Had been The Lead?
Here's a quote from the GI that's very apposite to this discussion:

Frankly, I conceived of Hile Troy as an antidote to WhyDoesn'tCovenantGetOffHisButtAndDoSomething-itis. I was acutely aware that ...

I agree with Cambo.

It should also be noted that in the Land's world the sins and virtues of the father pass on to the children, for example Elena's flaw or the accumulated flaws/sins of Berek's f ...

If Kevin had not performed the ROD then Lord Foul would have presumably gone on to defeat the Lords and utterly Desecrate the Land and then move on to wreak havoc on the rest of the Earth. This would ...

Hile Troy becomes the Lead, he takes the White Gold and uses it to hammer out evil.

He breaks the Arch of Time and Foul wins. The End.

Particularly in the First Chronicles, Foul manipulates peop ...

So, while having a leper as the protagonist in a major work of fantasy WAS unusual, I do admit that not so long ago the thought had occurred to me that Hile Troy could have made a fascinating hero in ...

I don't mean to sound harsh, but let's call a spade a spade.

Elena is a great character. I enjoy reading about her. In fact I would say she is a unique character in the SRD canon.

However, I al ...

Teresa didn't believe in herself. Her passivity, her fading, her confusion about her reality, all arise from this. If she could have 'snapped out of it' on her own, there wouldn't really be a story. A ...

Roger had only his mother's example because his father wasn't there to provide a better one.

Yes, I know. Joan took Roger away and divorced him. I know that in the the time of the Chronicles were w ...

Elena was made into a servant of Foul and she was redeemed.
Elena never willingly served Foul, she was enslaved and coerced.

This is not about whether my blanket statement has a hole in it, thoug ...

I just find Covenant's lack of an attachment-- or reaction to his fate, really offputting.
I had tried to formulate some thoughts about that observation in this thread: What about Roger?

For me, the whole thing with Roger was a wasted opportunity.

Remember, Covenant is the man who anguished over killing 21 men and women of the Clave who were actively trying to kill him because they ...

The one problem I have with the whole "Elena is insane" theory is that-- if that was the case-- why the heck couldn't the others Lords see it-- especially during the whole Mindmeld stuff?

I think that SRD put in more plot elements than he was ultimately able to handle.

Roger was definitely one of them.

In the end, it's not so much his death that disappointments me as Covenant's c ...
