Hi all

So I am 40% into my MoI re-read and loving every letter of it

I am taking in so much more the 2nd time around and the fact I have forgotten bits and pieces of the story is great so its like I'm reading it for the first time

Just wanted to know what everyones favourite story thread was from their reading experience (e.g. The Grey Swords, The caravaneers, bridgeburners etc.)

At this point in time I reckon the Lady Envy, Toc and Tool group is probably my favourite group; followed by the Grey Swords.

Cheers

Steamer

Gruntle's storyline, from jaded caravan guard to involuntary mortal sword to flat out 'champion' has always been one of my favorite parts of the book.
The 'child banner' bit is stunning, and the part when he rallies his Legion into the tiger is pure fantasy lit candy.
CHASE: Paw Patrol is ready for action Mr Pust sir!
PUST: *pauses ranting* What does that mean?
ZUMA: It means let's dive in, dude!
PUST: What? What is a dude? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?????

I have always been partial to Dujek and Whiskeyjack, although in MoI there are so many great story arcs I cant really pick just 1, lol.

Itkovian is my favorite character without a doubt, I cried...
Rake is a close second though.
I'd like to know more about the Trygalle Trade Guild, they're always interesting.

Aye, we know of its worth, yet in knowing we then attach to it a value, we guard the giving of it, believing it must be earned, T'lan Imass. Compassion is priceless in the truest sense of the word. It must be given freely. In abundance."
