Currently nearing the end of my millionth reread of all things Tolkien. Almost done Return of the King.

After this, I'm torn between finishing up the last of the Dragonlance Weis and Hickman stif I haven't gotten around to (War of Souls, Dark Disciple) or starting in on The Dresden Files.

The Dresden Files are awesome!

Elaine Cunningham used to have a blog about what she was reading; her mention of the books (and CallMeGene's followup recommendation) are what got me into those books. Jim Butcher has now joined the short list of authors who can sell me a book by putting their name on it.

Just finished King of Scars, the newest book in the Grishaverse, and before that I read Poisoned in Light, the last of the Dragori trilogy.

I've had the first four sitting on my shelf for years, plus the comic that serves as a prequel to Storm Front. Just haven't gotten around to them yet.

Re-reading the Captive Flame, from the Brotherhood of the Griffon series. Now that I understand the concept of "sjashukri" (the way dragonborn critizice someone without actually speaking ill of them), I can't help but smile every time Balasar (one of the dragonborn characters) says something.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Just finished Starship Troopers and the first three Dune novels......first time reading them. No clue why I had not read them yet!

Regarding the Night Parade btw, so far there have been no less than 3 creatures in this novel that I have absolutely no idea what they are. Once I finish the novel, would this be the place to post questions about what they are? I thought I knew every D&D monster, but these 3 so far have left me clueless.

Having read the first Dune novel, I have no clue why people read any more of them.

I really don't understand what the hype is about, with that one.

Are you referring to the Night Parade creatures themselves? Such as Lord Sixx and Imperator Zeal? I was under the impression all of these creatures were from an alternate world that was dying so they had to go to Faerun. They can't have children so they kidnap children and transform them into the Night Parade with the apparatus. I was under the assumption there would be a separate monster manual to explain all of these creatures because they are not traditional D&D monsters.

Realms Bestiary Volume II by the esteemed Eric L. Boyd and Thomas M. Costa has a write-up for the hordlings including tables for random generations and all the relevant references.

It should be available on this website somewhere after the authors agreed to make it available the last few days (I hope one of the Mods will pass by and get you the link or correct me if I'm wrong).

I sent the files to Big Al last night, so I'd expect him to have them on the main site in the next day or two.

I know I've never heard of them the way they were described. I mean, some of these creatures seem to me to be straight from the Pit. The "children fly" things in Lhal's childhood home, the giant aberration that spawned them, Pieraccinni the informant from Calimport, that one creature that looked like a woman with hands all over its body (including its eye sockets!) that detach and attack targets, etc.

Some truly disgusting and horrific things! I look forward to the Realms Bestiary Volume II.

It's up. Big Al posted them the other day. See the What's New section of the main site.
