The rules are simple:-

1. Please keep discussions within the correct threads, and do not discuss the events that take place beyond the scheduled discussions breaks. These will be considered as spoilers and will be edited, moved or possibly deleted.

2. No author bashing! Authors are the honored guests of Candlekeep and will be treated with respect. You may disagree on points in the discussion, but no attacks.

3. Have fun!

See.....simple!

Thanks

Indeed... and I'd just like to add my own mod voice to this .

We here at Candlekeep should continue to be extremely respectful of the authors who CHOOSE to visit these halls and appreciate the efforts and time they put into their works. They do so in their own free time and thus we should continue to recognise that sacrifice on their parts.

Discussions with authors here at Candlekeep has worked so well in the past, that I would hate to see such a facility disappear in a manner similar to what occured on the WotC boards.

Let's all work together to ensure that Candlekeep is the ONE stop for FR authors wishing to talk about their past, previous, and future works.

Thank you .

Well met

Very well said, Sage Indeed, discussions with the authors herein have always gone very well and we have learnt a vast amount of lore from the tidbits we have interrogated gleaned from them. I certainly hope the book club follows suit.

There's only one type of bashing that will occur herein, and that's a bashing from the staff of the irritated moderator! Although I doubt that will be necessary

Hope ye all enjoy the book clubs.

Yes. You will really have to have read through the other Erevis Cale novels before reading this one.

Next month will be much better for more people, as we will be reading a novel that is stand-alone.

I've seriously got to wonder why you didn't choose Whisper of Waves for this month's novel...oh well. Maybe next month.

I am sure people are wondering the same thing too. I will explain.

This is mainly because of the move of the book clubs from Worlds of D&D to here. We had already established which FR novels we would be reading up to the end of the year, and had selected Midnight's Mask.

We will more than likely run EVERY new release as it comes out, in the future.

Obviously some book clubs will have author participation, while some will not. I don't think we will get Phil Althans or Ed Greenwood over here anytime soon

Well met

I'm wondering if maybe running this tome alongside would be worthwhile, even though Phil Athans hasn't graced us with his presence. If anyone is interested in participating in a Whisper of Waves book club, then I'll gladly open one up herein.

I'm trying... I dropped a few references to Candlekeep and it's dedication to the Realmslore on another message board I've seen Phil on. I'm hoping he'll take note of it .

Oh don't be so sure.... Ed contributes herein on a daily basis! There are a vast amount of scrolls from this year alone.

Aye, I am aware of those, but I meant on a bookclub level. Unless someone gets the questions to him, and then he replies.

In terms of the CLASSIC book of the month, for January, can we discuss THE PARCHED SEA, by Troy Denning? Just a thought.

Well met

I'm always open to suggestions, SheriffJoe. Thank ye Regarding Classic book clubs, I think going forward it would be a good idea to run a poll on a selected number of novels. The highest wins, assuming that there are enough members who have voted, of course. Regardless, I will be holding off classic book clubs for the current month. Apologies. Feel free to post your comments on The Parched Sea in a thread in the Novels section, however

Isn't there any rule as to HOW MUCH can a scribe directly quote from a novel?

Didn't notice that.

I'm concerned because at times I'm inclined to making several, and sometimes long, direct quotations to emphasize my point.

From "Section B.3" of the Candlekeep Code of Conduct:-
quote:
3. Avoid posting large amounts of text quoted directly from WotC products. If you feel the need to do so, please keep the amount of text to a minimum (a couple of paragraphs at the most) and place the text within the Quote box (use the quote icon on the posting toolbar above the text area), stating the product title and page number from which the text was taken.

A couple of paragraphs...I'm fine with that. I think I once saw a post that has a direct quotation from Cult of the Dragon---which looked like more than a couple of paragraphs, detailing Sammaster and Lathander's Avatar's battle...That was two pages from the said source, I guess.

Such type of elements I think come with the inspiration and creativity, that makes us clear about the concept. For this, I would say that when is the next book that is coming across. To be at Candlekeep we will be more happily appraise and pay attention to what it is talking about.
