    The contrast between how good episode 5 was and how awful the motendo episode was is unreal. I nearly bailed after that episode, glad I didn't!

    I just read the first Vorkosigan Saga book, Shards of Honor by Louise McMaster Bujold. Heard a lot of good things about Bujold and wanted to read some Space Opera.

    This was a trap! This is a love story masquerading as a War focused Space Opera! I was looking for space battles and political treachery, I got the treachery but the real trick was making me enthralled with the protagonists relationship.

    I almost dropped the book during the first chapters but damn if the writing didn't keep me hooked. Pretty untraditional story arc too. The book ends just as it's getting complicated.

    I bough the sequel right away but I'm jumping to book 7 "Barrayer", as it picks up the day after the first book ended. I think this book ends in tears.

    You've got a journey to go on, Bujold writes a lot of different genres masquerading as Space Opera but they all have very compelling writing. One of my favourite authors!


    Started reading Tender is the Flesh by Agustina Bazterrica and I'm only about 10% in and already extremely uncomfortable. I am not in for a fun time but it is so compelling!

    I also found this extremely uncomfortable! I did not enjoy the whole book but somehow had to finish it

    Thanks all for the input.

    I guess i am pretty open on what kind of level the play will be. I like both, more intimate stories and epic and grand-scale stuff. I guess with Malazan I'd do the "start small, build up and go nuts" kind of thing. Of course depending on what the characters do (and/or what the players want to do).

    I really like the idea that you provided, Abyss. So thanks for that. It's a good hook!

    Starting point is a good question. I like Malaz City and the continent of Quon Tali. Although it's not as if the other locations around the Malaz world are less interesting. I have trouble to just pick one thing ^^

    A lot of the malazan gurps games which inspired the books were of a squad of marines/crimson guard/claw, I'd start with whichever of those most appeals to your players and go from there. You'll notice most of the squads in malazan are conveniently sized to make up a typical RPG group with maybe a DMPC to guide them along.
