  1. For those interested in The Kandric Saga

    Kyle says that this is a large chapter and covers a lot of plot lines. If that is the case, I wonder if perhaps we are rushing (relatively speaking) to the end of the story. Kyle still has "Re-emergence", "The Defenders", "Adventure Quest", "Brile", "O'Connell's Grenadiers", and "Destiny's Shadow" going. I'm sure that all of his stories occupy a great deal of his time and he still has to deal with the RL tasks of survival, as we all do. Kyle, Jamie and one or two of the other online authors are those that I follow religiously and wait patiently for new chapters of existing stories or new stories to be posted.
  2. Just wondering

    I've noticed the same thing, but also noticed that there are several new stories on the list which would explain "Scrolls" getting pushed off of the bottom. As much as I would love to see "Gold" and "45" posted and the story continued, Jamie's well-being (both mental and physical) is more important. I figure that if I can wait patiently for a year for a new chapter of "Kandric" to be posted, I can wait patiently for anything new for "Scrolls" to be posted. RL does have that nasty habit of showing it's ugly face from time to time.
  3. The Enigma of Flatness

    Chapter 28 has been posted.
  4. Just wondering

    At the moment, there is nothing more to be said, and I promise not to say it.
  5. For those interested in The Kandric Saga

    I sincerely hope we are getting close to our yearly chapter of Kandric. I too, have been reading, have read "Fire and Ice". As interesting as the first four books were, I found the fifth book "A Dance With Dragons" rather boring and unexciting. Actually, about 1/4 way through it, I put it down and have had no desire to pick it up again. Oh well! Plenty of other reading to keep me occupied while waiting for Kyle and Jamie.
  6. Just wondering

    If Jamie is working on "Gold" and '45, what ever happened to "Silver"? Last that I saw was "Bronze".
  7. Radio Interview

    "Thanks for the memory." I remember listening to the interview when it first appeared at Awesome Dude so it was interesting to listen to it again. I doubt very much if it would change if it were to be conducted now. Provided the questions were the same, I believe that the answers would like wise be the same.
  8. Book 2, Chapter 44

    Didn't occur to me that the open area with Rood at it's apex was the result of Jamie's actions, but it does make sense with the amount of energy that he generated. If indeed that is what caused it, the energy expended must have been huge and Jamie is more powerful than he knows at this point in time. Good catch!
  9. Interlude - The Seventh

    Bronze is a very pleasant break from the high drama of the mainline story. As a matter of fact each of the interludes have provided a nice respite from the drama of the story. They also provide that little bit of extra color and background that adds to the overall enjoyment of the story. That being so, I wouldn't expect them to advance the story, that is for the main story. They might add some answers or other information that would be awkward to have in the story. Then again, maybe not. No matter, I enjoy them for what they are. Anyway... It was interesting to see a little of how the Kalorians faired in Taldor Valen in the early years after Angels Falls through the eyes of Larrus. How he really took to heart what his friend, The Prince, told him, "Friends help friends." Yes, Charlie and Giovanni have already mated. That they had mated was the cause of all the anguish when Jamie told them that they had to separate to keep them safe. Even though it has never been said outright, I believe that just as Nic was created to be Jamie's mate from the DNA of Agramos, so was Giovanni created to be Charlie's mate from the same DNA. Remember, iron and bronze are baser medals when compared to silver and gold and if any answers are to be forthcoming in an interlude it would seem to me that silver or gold would be the proper vehicle. But, if not, they will still provide a nice pause before we return to the drama. Take care TomasG
  10. Interlude 7 - Iron

    Wow! Lots to talk about. We get a picture of what Charles was really about, but having to be extra cautious to having to keep his true agenda a secret, he was blindsided by the 11 Red & Black Legionaries that he thought were loyal to him. Turns out they had evidently been subverted by the smooth talking Hippolito. I also believe that Hippolito was instrumental in the cryo-units that didn't make it to Eagles Rock being lost. Also in Loran being saved. I seem to remember that I made a comment on one of the earlier chapters that I believed that Loka's ultimate goal was to become Emperor. That has now been proven. Then before he leaves for Argon he throws Hippolito under the bus. Hippolito then has a cause for revenge. It has now occurred to me that it was Hippolito who had the cryo-units reset to 2500 years. The thought is that Loka would wake up in 100 years and none of the resources that he was expecting was there so he would be emperor of nothing but a dead world, more or less. Then in 2500 years Loka and the rest of his cohorts and any others who escaped to Argon would be long gone and it would be an easy matter for him to become king. His revenge would be complete. I'm sure that he believed that he had the Princes and Scribes in the palm of his hand before the events in Book 1, Chapter 50 took place. Of course, most of the above is supposition. TomasG
  11. A New Year Begins

    Wasn't here for the grand opening, but am happy to have found and be a part of The Talon House. Hmmmmm... July 14th. Bastille Day VIVA LE TALON HOUSE!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TALON HOUSE and Thank you, Talon Rider. TomasG
  12. Book 2, Chapter 44

    That's great that you and Jamie will have another get together. Just too bad that he will have to deal with our TSA thugs and perverts. I have read both books 1 & 2 innumerable times. Sometimes I'll start at the beginning and other times I just start reading in the middle. Or a thought will occur and I'll start reading in the chapter where I think the event that I'm having the thoughts about happened. Then I usually just continue reading. It's easy to understand our little wizard being despondent about what he perceives as his failures, but I'm sure he'll spring back. It will be interesting to see what nuggets the Interludes reveal. Then on to book 3 and the Circle OF Ondra.
  13. Book 2, Chapter 44

    My biggest hope in regards to The Scrolls is that Jamie will be able to return to his usual posting schedule. Also, It seems like we have lost some of the people that used to post questions and comments making for lively discussions on each of the chapters and the overall story.
  14. The Gladiators of Castle Rood

    Very nice list, but it seems like it's coming late to the game. Very few of the Gladiator Duets, thus far, have been identified in the course of the story. Of course, it may be that more of them will be identified during the battle in Fire Block Canyon. In thinking about it very little, only bits and pieces, have been told about the Gahdar. Why only 50 active duets? Surely there are more gladiators in training and are accomplished enough to make up more active duets. Don't take that as a complaint or a negative reaction to the posting of the list, just curiosity raising it's head. I'm glad to see it.
  15. Book 2, Chapter 44

    I don't think that we'll get to the fight with Loran in The Circle Of Ondra until late in part four. Jamie still has Charles' fate to deal with (remember the 44 chapter cliffy ), then the battle in Fire Block Canyon. Also there is the battle at the pass w/Brotus and the Iron Regiment to contend with. After which is the task of getting everyone to The Circle Of Ondra. Then we can have the fight between Jamie and Loran and the outcome of that. And all the while keeping some small tab on the activity of Gude and Hippoleto, although I doubt that they will be fully dealt with until Book Three along with whatever role that Charlie and Giovanni are destined to play. Many things to be deal with in Part Four.
