That was a fascinating insight about the Insequent corresponding to the characters from the real world. (Could the army-defeating Vizard be Hile Troy? Also, I tend to lean for the Theomach (I think fr ...

Here's some documentation about Requires Hate a.k.a. Winterfox:

This is the privilege that truly matters. None of her targets are like that.

On the subject of "TC becomes LF", I don't think it would have been that hard to achieve, at least not to someone with SRD's demonstrated writing skills.

@Murrin, I haven't been following the matter that closely, but I don't think she's changed. She just laid down for a while and is now back to her old ways, only with fewer followers.

I may be out of the loop here, but here's this thread anyway.

To make things clear, I don't think we need sequels. I'm just disappointed that SRD didn't follow on his promise for a more conclusive ending. Based on his words I was thinking that he would blow up t ...

Some random bits on the subject:

I remember that back then SRD said something to the effect that The Last Chronicles would be a decisive end and that there could be no sequels after that because the Land wouldn't exist. I now see tha ...

The Insequent exsited before the first trilogy. The Haruchia encountered them long before setting march to the Land and their meeting with High Lord Kevin.

I thought I explained about that...

I just had a major idea. We know from the example of the quellvisk that Lord Foul can create custom-made intelligent races with powerful magic. I think Lord Foul created the Insequent.

I think the Worm is going to be a black hole or a close analogue. It's currently a very tiny black hole, smaller than a pinprick, but its mountainous mass is still enough to severely disturb the envir ...

After reading AATE I have to admit to myself that the Last Chronicles are not just slow to get going but that SRD has really lost it.

I think my biggest gripe is the I don't care about the characte ...

I'm feeling the loss too. For me the Last Chronicles have been lacking in the strong emotions of the earlier books.

I think this might be intentional and part of a key theme about death and letting ...
