@Kevadu Where is your long post about the GPD? I can't find it!

I prefer the forums too.  Much more organized.  I can find specific things that were said 10 years ago with relative ease and that's just not possible with Discord. 

But, if that's the way the wind is blowing, then I really have no other choice.  Where else am I going to shout about pixels with strangers?

here is the discworld reading guide.  You can basically pick any strand on there (would recommend nights watch) and they are more or less self contained.




I think it's REALLY REALLY difficult to build an effective and coherent fantasy world in 1 novel (unless its 1100 pages long) there is just too much foundation that needs to be laid and history that often needs to be fleshed out in order to adequately tell a story set in a fantasy universe.  Hell, Tolkien was the master and even he needed to write the 350 page Silmarillion in order to make sense of Middle Earth.

^ thanks Jimmy. That's exactly what I was going to recommend.  It has always confused me why people queue up to pay for material when they can just as easily get it for free.

I'm starting ''The Wheel of Time'' on audible.

why??????

don't pay for books when you can get them for free at the library...

I have too. I listen to it while I'm at work. I never have the time to pick up an actual book.

Also I just started Becky Chambers' second book "A Closed and Common Orbit".  If it's anywhere as good as the first one (The Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet) I'm in for a treat.  The third book in the series is due out in July.

I dont have a choice if I wanted to read a book. I listen to audible while I work.

Public library has e-audiobooks too

Rode my book bike in the Pride Parade yesterday.  Anyone who could go through 40 minutes of that much positive energy and not come out with a smile has a heart of stone.

I've been going kayaking every week for the last 4 weeks.   It hasn't disappointed.

Still farting around in Tales of Vesperia.  Currently on the Heracles destroying overmatched baddies on my way to an almost certainly overpowered Alexei.

nothing wrong with x4 or x5. But all that really means is that collection 1 has four good games and 2 has one.  The wheels fell off after 5.

went golfing this morning.  I stink but I had a lot of fun.  One of the guys in my group played poorly and was furious about it. Throwing clubs and swearing and acting like a tool.  I never understood why people pay $30 a pop so they can be angry for 3 hours. Just enjoy that you're outside with your friends on a beautiful day.

Reading the Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.  It's a fantastic Sci-Fi novel by someone who is completely in love with Science Fiction and space travel. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is in to that genre. My only real complaint is that her male ship captain WAY overthinks social interaction and conversation in a manner that is generally very atypical of someone in his position/with his life experiences. But I hear that women have been dealing with those sort of mischaracterizations from male authors forever, so I guess it's a small price to pay for what has so far been a tremendously enjoyable novel.
