No. The Crown Wars doesn't interest me. (I want my own button to press in the poll!! )

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

Sorry, mate, but it's too late to add another button. However, because I am running the poll and Hasbro is not, I acknowledge your request instead of ignoring it and then asking six months from now if you have a suggestion for a new button!







I have a mouth, but I am in a library and must not scream.

That's what I like about the Crown Wars: the sun elves started them and "everyone" knows that they were at fault. So who was punished? The drow, who resisted the brutal imperialism of the sun elves - nothing feeds one's ego quite like a divine endorsement to punish the victims of your crimes! (Nasty elvsesess ... we hates' em, don't we, Precious?)


Sun elves started, thats true. But the reply of the dark elves was even more dreadful. But I think just as many of the illithiri were innocent, not all sun elves were vyshaan-sympathizers.

I would purchase a series on the Crown Wars in either format.

I would buy ANY FR novel/series set before 1386 DR.

-I voted Hard Cover. Now if the poll would have had a both option Soft/Hard Cover I would have voted for that. Yeah a Series set in the Crown War would be nice, until someone starts nitpicking it about the lore. And we know it would happen. Now who would we want writing said series?

So check out The Stowaway.

Yeah, it's pretty good, and it's pre-Spellplague.

I'm in



When hinges creak in doorless chambers and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls, whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still, that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.

I've been pushing for such a book. Elaine said, in a different thread, that she'd love to write it, but doesn't see it happening. I don't buy hardcovers, unless I'm getting it signed, and I never read my signed books.

Only some of the dark elves were innocent (Miyeritar). According to Evermeet, and other lore, the Ilythiiri were worshipping Gaunadaur and warring with their neighbors, before the Crown Wars.

-As far back as -25,100 DR, the Dark Elves of Atorrnash were worshiping both Vhaeraun (the "plebeians", if you will) and Ghaunadaur (the "patricians", if you will).

This is why we need a series of books about that time.
