Sorry I posted this in the wrong book and am reposting here.

I'm trying to find a quote. It's one of the questions I still haven't answered, even after reading the whole MBotF and up through half of Stonewielder

Somewhere in this book (may be in a previous one) there is a list of the major powers in the world. I cannot remember the context, but it may have been during a Tile reading or something. But in the list it mentions what sounds like Caladan Brood, and his "defier" standing in opposition to him. Or something like that. So it sounded like Kruppe and Caladan....except.... it mentioned the defier was a "stonewielder" or something like that. I won't spoil the meaning of stonewielder, but I can say that it doesn't seem to have anything to do with kruppe.

Can anybody find this quote, and try to comment of who the people are without spoilers?

this is a spoiler if you haven't read Stonewielder, so

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

The quote is actually from The Crippled God, so I'm going to chuck it in spoilers:

Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similes in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad necem.

Si hoc adfixum in obice legere potes, et liberaliter educatus et nimis propinquus ades.

Yes! That is the quote. Thanks. I won't read the Stonewielder spoiler above yet, because I still have 200 pages to go and haven't yet figured out that "balance" thing yet.

Was the speaker Bugg?

But geez, this is the second time I've put this question into the wrong book! Should have just gone for tCG right from the start.

You could always use the General Book Forum when you're not sure, since it's all-encompassing.
