Any chance we will have 'Light's playlist when the book comes out?

Nothing better to go with a good book than good music I'd say.

And I think it would help to understand the character better if we listen to what inspires her.

Thanks!

*fighting the urge for a page long query*

And Sage,

It's a heck of an album, hope you and your lady enjoy as much as me and mine!

I imagine it'll appear in February, sometime, in preparation for Depths.

But I mean, technically, the character's already out there, so it could appear any time between now and then.

The only time it couldn't appear is in the past, because while I once invented a time machine, I went back in time to stop myself from doing it.

The consequences were not pretty.

You'd have loved calorie-free organic donuts.

And bladeball.

Sigh. . . .

Ahem -- but it will definitely appear before the book, unless I, you know, die, or something.

Cheers

I know about time travel...

You see, I discovered some time travel technology that one of my ancestors invented. I used it to travel back in time to ancient Egypt, where I became the Pharaoh Rama-Tut. I ruled there until I was driven off by some time-displaced heroes of the 20th century. Following that conflict, I left the past and travelled to a post-apocalyptic 40th century where I reinvented myself briefly as the Scarlet Centurion before settling on the identity of . . . . . Who?

The rest is history.

Ha!

Yeah, they had good time travel in the old days -- these days, it's only other dimensions/realities that you get to through matter transferrance and big machines, where they wear CHAINMAIL in the 13th-15th centuries. (Damn it, Crichton!)

Maybe . . . maybe not.

I won't say where it takes place because, as is hinted in the novel description, the heroes don't even know where it takes place.

I seem to think you won't be disappointed.

And I'm more than appreciative... Thank you Erik. A lovely gift indeed.

Though I'm not familiar with most of these songs, I'm glad to see EV tracks from more than TOD made it onto Twilight's playlist. Neat.

Considering the bitterness in Twilight's character... I'm almost tempted to say that the acoustic version of ATILF would be more appropriate. There's far more emotion... though, an exciting choice overall.

I personally prefer the piano/vocal only version, but again, another intriguing choice. You've got me interested in another character as well now... especially "Meaning of Life" with regard to Twilight.

All excellent suggestions Erik. I happily approve.

Meh -- just a difference in preference. I think it's largely because I felt the original was just lacking that sort of shift, so when the remix of MI came out, I was in hog heaven. The piano/vocal version might fit the character better, or it might be just *too* emotional(?). Depends on one's individual conception, methinks.

quote:

Heheheh. Just you wait.

That is, assuming Twilight's story continues beyond Depths -- I mean, that's up to Wizards.

And she could always die, you know. Permanently, that is.

But let's just say -- I know that story, and I'd like to tell it.

Well, I'm working on putting together as much of this playlist as possible, but I'm having difficulty finding some of these other songs. I'll likely listen to it around the time I'm reading Depths.

The question is... Does Fox miss the winter?

As an elf, I'm assuming she probably doesn't.

There's a version floating around on youtube.com, from the Yahoo! Sessions Online as I recall.

Lock the last open door and Fox should be fine!

Actually, you've presented an intriguing case for the alternate version.

Individual conception is a part of it, I agree. I guess I'll just have to see whether it still fits after reading the book.

Can't say more than I have said thus far, I'm afraid!

Other than that my editor and I are working out promotional material for the novel. You'll most likely see a companion short story before the actual novel, as I did with "Wayfarer" and Ghostwalker.

quote:
Any old characters we can expect within?



Now let's see . . . there are two meanings to that question, and I think I can answer both.

There are three characters in the novel who are over 52 years of age (which I believe is the D&D human "old" age category), though only one of them would be "old" by the standards implied by your question. One of these characters is Twilight, but she's certainly not *old*. Quite young, in fact -- perhaps the book will reveal exactly how old she is.

Or perhaps not.

As for the other way of answering your question -- I believe Twilight is the only of my characters you will have seen prior to Depths . . . though if you read the companion piece, you may just see more of them.

Cheers

Greetings from the Heartland of America!!!

What a great late Christmas gift to find in the new year.

A nice find after "My log winter's nap", otherwise known at out farm as the Harvest from hell.

Looks like I missed alot, but am glad to find this nugget.

I hope you squeeze Snow White Queen in somewhere , that song just sticks everytime I hear it and would fit a vilian nicely. (Which makes sense because Amy Lee wrote it for the Chronicles of Narnia.)

Cannot wait for Depths to arrive on my doorstep!

Erik, just one little bitty spoiler for a weary farmer who has just made the trek back into the warmth of Candlekeep?

Snow White Queen wasn't the "Narnia" song. We don't know exactly which song that is, other than the fact that the introduction to Good Enough was part of it. Which, co-incidently, I think would also make a worthy addition to Fox's playlist.

To me, Snow White Queen seems to fit the Simbul more than anything else.

My blog is your best bet.

Hmm -- yes, I think you're right. Maybe I'll add that one! I think of the Open Door as being a good theme album to listen to while reading Depths, actually.

I might also mention that "Good Enough" is my better half's favorite song off that album.

Cheers

Neat.

As soon as I'm done with Depths, I'm going to take a shot at putting together my own EV playlist for Fox -- though I'll likely want to draw on material from their limited release EPs as well.

Funny that... my own better half just recently told me the same thing.

I'll have to hunt some down. Suggestions on which and (possibly) where?

I don't know, there's a certain very powerful priestess of Auril somewhere up in the frozen north . . .

And no, that's not a tease or a hint. Nothing out of me regarding her -- at least at the moment.

And for those who doubt that Twilight looks like Amy Lee . . .

She's got the same "pale eyes."

Suggestions on which... I'm composing a basic listing now given Twilight's appearance in "The Greatest Treasure". A full listing will have to wait until after I've read Depths.

As for where... see the EV Reference site here:- http://evanescencereference.info/music/

And yes, it's all legal -- Amy makes that quite clear.

Hehe...

A number of EV and FR fans, myself included, have been discussing possible Auril connections with the theme of a "Snow White Queen" and the visual setting of Lithium on an EV forum -- we all agree that the Winter Palace in Luskan would make an (almost) appropriate Realms-interpretation.

Though, ice-packed garments are probably a stretch.

Interesting.

Did any of these images provide inspiration for you when you first began describing Twilight in "The Greatest Treasure?"

Not these, since I either hadn't found these images at the time or they hadn't yet existed. I did, however, particularly like the My Immortal video . . .

Neato!

And, if you have the time... I wouldn't mind hearing what you thought about some of these earlier EV releases -- after you listened to them, of course.

Not these, since I either hadn't found these images at the time or they hadn't yet existed. I did, however, particularly like the My Immortal video . . .
Hmmm... That's brings up another related question... though since it will likely stretch the bounds of Realmslore, I think I'll tackle this one through PMs.

I did. And I still am.

I promised The Sage a Twilight playlist and, well, here it is:

Sweet Sacrifice, Evanescence
You Give Love a Bad Name, Bon Jovi
Bitch, Meredith Brooks
Pain, Jimmy Eat World
Bring Me to Life, Evanescence
Raspberry Swirl, Tori Amos
Out of Control, She Wants Revenge
Last Breath, Evanescence
Shame, Stabbing Westward
Whenever, Wherever, Shakira
Iiee, Tori Amos
Spookshow Baby, Rob Zombie
All That I'm Living For, Evanescence
Paperdoll, Kittie
Meaning of Life, Disturbed
Ojos Asi, Shakira
My Immortal, Evanescence
Evil Angel, Breaking Benjamin
Breathe, Melissa Etheridge
Because of You, Kelly Clarkson

Explanations of each of these songs (i.e. why they're included, etc.) are on my blog: http://eriksdb.livejournal.com


Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!

Cheers
That's fabulous, Erik. A truly inspiring selection.

She's got the same "pale eyes."

Oh, I never doubted it.

I will admit that I've come to appreciate Fox-at-Twilight's character in a different way, now that I've read through these recent posts. It's a sure bet there'll be a fight between the Sage and myself on who will read Depths of Madness first once our copy arrives.

I'm glad you like it, m'lady. [bow]

Ooh! Excellent! (Assuming your "different way" is a positive way. )

Oh man, I've really done it now. Hype hype hype!

But seriously -- here's an idea, from struggles of mutual interest in my own household: Have one of you read it aloud to the other.

Cheers

P.S. You could always wait for the audiobook, but that might be a LONG wait.

Why not just get two copies?

"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams."
