Excellent! In fact, Riven used an item retrieved from the remains of the Sojourner. A ring, specifically. This will show up in Shadowbred.

SPOILER:









Paul, since the next trilogy about Cale will involve the Shadovar, I presume that the Sakkors Mythallar will show up there. Am I right in my assumption that Ssessimyth will also pop up?

Skeptic,

Not entirely set in stone just yet. If and when I can provide that info, I definitely will.

Heh, what can I say-- my mother raised me to good music. I take it you too worship the pantheon of music deities (Sabbath, Zeppelin, Floyd, et al)?

Eh, have you ever heard of the Hitman line of games? I love them, and their protagonist strikingly reminds me of Cale. Both tall, skilled, bald, white assassins, trained from childhood in their trade. If you like video games (keyword "if"), you may want to check them out. Very very good games.

Hi Paul,

I just finished "Resurrection" and wanted to congratulate you on an excellent last novel in the WotSQ-Saga. A very touching and interesting end. There's something about your writing-style that makes saying good-bye to characters you get attached to (f.e. Jak Fleet or Pharaun) not such a worse thing (as we're talking about music at the moment, I had "Fix You" by Coldplay as soundtrack going along with the last 50 pages and it made me very sentimental).
Is there any possibility of seeing some of the characters (perhaps a clone of Pharaun? ) in other stories or is that up to R.A. Salvatore do decide?

Yours,
Braveheart

Braveheart,

Thank you. As or seeing the characters again: Thomas Reid and Lisa Smedman are each writing a spin-off series -- the former featuring Kaanyr and Aliisza, and the latter featuring the Lady Penitent.

It will be amusing to see the shadovar come to claim the mythallar, only to run into a kraken that`s well....huge. How big is Ssessimyth, by the way?(in meters, not feet, please)

Hey Paul, I was just wondering how you pictured the rest of the Fleet family meeting their ends. In my campaign, my PCs ended up visiting Stumphill, got used to eating at Mrs. Fleet's, and then were devestated when they found out that Stumphill had been raided, apparently by drow, but actually by the Eldreth Veluuthra. Somehow, I'm guessing you had something more sedate in mind.

Khorne,

Yes. Several times larger than a blue whale, and just in the trunk and head. The tentacles (especially the longer outer two) are much longer than that even.

KEjr,

I did have something more sedate in mind for Jak's mother -- just a gentle passing from age. Jak's had enough adventure for the whole Fleet clan, so I figured the fates would allow the rest to travel in and out of Faerun in peace.

Your version sounds more interesting, though!

I have a slight feeling the shadovar are going to be a wee bit surprised when they turn up to claim the Mythallar..... How do you even kill something that big?!!

You summon an even bigger monster, of course. Like, um ...Bane. Or you make it drink "Mike's Insanity Sauce"

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.

A spell of dehydration? At least that worked on some *ahem* dragons in a computer game.

Greetings again!

Dunno whether it has been adressed already, but has there been anything said by the Wizards (designers) in response to what the Sojourner did to Selūne's tear? Any "fall out" on Faerūn, both in events and possibly items/material? In any case, it should get a mention in the Realms' calendar, shouldn't it?

Greetings, Mr. Kemp!

I have recent finished reading The Erevis Cale Trilogy and I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. The praise from the scribes here (and your work on Resurrection) prompted me purchase the paperbacks. The Sojourner disgusted me, literally. I have never been moved to that degree by the antagonist of a novel, so, very well played on your part.

I did have one question, and a further comment.

First, in the Fane, the statue of Mask was missing a leg. Did The Caretaker go out there and hack it off or did the temple reshape itself to reflect the current troubles of the Shadowlord?

Moving on. As I read the books, I could almost see the writing on the wall. One thing continually got reinforced to me as the novels went on: Mask will get the Intrigue portfolio back. (I'm saying that's the feeling I got, not what you meant.) If it must happen, I can only humbly request that Cyric puts up some semblance of a fight and not be mowed down like his followers were in the trilogy (and prelude short story).

In anycase, you have a loyal reader! Shadowbred will eagerly purchased in hardcover format.
