Heh, I never had any intention of trying to resist reading the first chapter. I know I'm not that strong. Very Happy

SRD managed to convey Linden's sense of panic, her desperation to reach Covenant and Jeremiah, very strongly. AT one point I started to panic slightly while reading.

I wish May 9 would hurry up and get here.

I usually don't bother with advance chapters etc, but after the April Fools thing, I had to read it to see how close Jay got.

*twitch* My GOD, Linden must die. To quote Irish comedian Dylan Moran:

Oh how I hate you. I hate you so much it gives me energy. I have to get up early to hate you because there isn't enough time in the day.

Grrrr too long till the Second Half, very interesting though, and some great lines.

Spoiler:
It seems TC and J are unLawful, seen as they cannot tolerate the Staff Of Law's power.

Spoiler:
How is is that the power Linden summons from the Staff of Law is "soft and clean as cornflowers", when in Runes, the staff responds to her use of it with magic that is yellow-coloured?

Yeah yeah, now please find another joke.

I found Covenant's one line just as exasperating as a whole half-chapter of Linden panicking. They both just needed to calm down a little instead of going off the deep end.

Can understand why they might be a little stressed however.

Covenant's line didn't bother me. Well, it bothered me in the sense of "what the hell is going on?!" but not in the sense of me wanting to kick him. Covenant has never been the most stable and even-tempered person, and I thought his wrathful snarl was fairly consistent with his personality.

I do feel something Foul at work though.

Yeah, I know. Both Covenant and Linden were fairly true to their personalities. I just wish they'd both take a few deep breaths and calm down a little. Very Happy

Spoiler:
After reading what was posted... the fact that TC and jeremiah cannot be touched by Linden or the staff has some strange implications.

1) Is their presence UN-lawful in some way? We know that the Law of Death was broken by Elena in millenia past, and that TC himself is/was dead...but what about Jeremiah?

2) Perhaps more importanly, I think it suggests that Linden has her own paradox. Recall that the Mhoram discovered that TC WAS the white gold... could Linden herself BE the Staff of Law? CFould her emotional need to control be so strong ( in conjunction with her healthsense) that it has the power to predicate the physical laws of the land?


Maybe this topic should have its own thread....?

This makes sense to me.

As long as white gold isn't explained away as genetic, I think nearly any explanation will do.

Well, we know that in previous trips, Covenant was "cured" of his leprosy while in the Land. At first I was thinking that perhaps Jeremiah has been "cured" of his autism in a similar manner. But the fact that Earthpower is not nearly as strong as it once was and the fact that Jeremiah can't be near the Staff is very odd.

Perhaps Covenant used some lore to "heal" Jeremiah and, since TC is dead, perhaps that was some unlawful act? Pure guess at this point, but I'm sure all will be explained Smile

Spoiler:
Could it be that TC is part of the Arch and it is now fractured. So the Staff and Linden are 'to much' for his fractured being? Jerimiah might be tied to the Arch or TC in some way also?

FYI, on May 9th the PDF file available will contain *all* of Chapter 1 - so there won't link for the first half and another for the second half.

Who had the bright idea to split the preview into 2 parts?
