This is great. Can't wait to read more...

Yes, SRD is occasionally heavy-handed in using names to evoke archetypes. We've known that for forty years...and y'all know me to be a fan of wordplay.

Spoiler:
The choice of name for a certain character beloved of two brothers is interesting...

That countdown is a bit cruel. Only 257 days left.

Oh well, something to look forward to.

Nah, me neither.

Given that there are folks like Way and Av who forego the preliminary chapter releases and wait spoiler-free for the entire book, and also folks who read anything they can as soon as they can, do we need to follow the practice established during the Last Chrons of creating a limited access subforum for discussion of the new series?

For one chapter, I don't think so. People can start a thread with a warning. Maybe if there's a lot of interest we can do it.

I'll read it soon. But I'm happy to see that whats-his-face (He Who Is Obsessed With People In Front Of Trees) isn't doing the cover art any more!
