    Maybe your perspective will change as you gain life experiences and empathy. I know I felt the Myhbe chapters could be dour - until I came into contact with people who had serious diseases that were slowly killing them well before their preferred time.

    I'm going to be polite and ask you to NOT make assumptions about me. You have no idea of my life experiences, nor my capacity for empathy. So BACK OFF.
    My perspective is that she was an overbread spoiled Noble, who looked at comoners as less than the dirt beneath her feet. A true product of her environment. Her disdain and contempt for both Heboric and Baudin from the beginning was despicable. Could things have been different if they had told her about their plans? Possibly, but I certainly wouldn't trust a brat like Felisin to keep anything secret. Ganoes was correct, a quick death would have been better for all involved.

    Weíre all broken people trying to get by in a broken world, and yet we should try to forgive each other anyway. Felisin might be more broken than most when the book begins, sheís certainly more broken than most by the end. When she injures others, we should ask what good she thought was going to come of her actions - what relief she was hoping to buy from her circumstances. Her coping mechanisms are warped by her experiences, and we should feel compassion for that, instead of outrage or anger.

    If someone steals your bike maybe itís to pawn for drugs to make their life a little bit more bearable. if someone cuts you off in traffic maybe itís because their partner is in the hospital. If someone is driving a huge SUV and blocks your parking space maybe itís because that car is the only way they feel safe on the road after a terrible accident. I think Erikson is writing a character who acts like this, and asking us to understand why. Feeling compassion for the ďFallenĒ is sort of what the series is all about.

    But if Eriksonís essay above didnít convince you, I donít think I will.

    I've been re-reading some of Erikson's essays lately and I think "From a Wounded Place" might help anyone appreciate Felisin a little bit more.

    Since it's been a while, I thought I'd extend the welcome to join the (Java) server again. It's been up and down a few times, but a couple of us starting playing again lately. Just let me know and I can whitelist / send the IP if anyone is interested. We also have a Discord server now.

    Here's my latest shenanigans building a big dome:

    I thought episode 8 was the best episode yet, Paddy Considine knocked it out of the park in every scene he was in. Ewan Mitchell did some pretty great sulking too, such a change from his character in The Last Kingdom.

    My steamdeck finally came through, just in time for most of my traveling to be done. Nevertheless I think it's time to finally Witcher. I never played any of them.

    Should I jump straight to 3 or will I be missing out too much not playing 1 and 2. Do they stand up?

    I'm a blatant Witcher fanboy, but I think they both stand up - at least story-wise and engagement-wise - if not for their combat system. I think I enjoy Witcher 2 over Witcher 3 these days. Still, I'd probably recommend playing 3 first and then going back to the earlier titles if you enjoy it, you don't miss much playing out of order. And if the story in 3 gets you hooked, then you'll probably enjoy the first two despite their mechanical flaws.

    My father was born in Wales and a few years back I decided to take a welsh language course. Can't remember much but the alphabet. Ever since I automatically read things as though they are in welsh. So, D is d, dd is th, f is v, ff is f, ll is...actually, not sure how to write that one, schl maybe?

    I didn't write that well. I was meant to be asking if the dd is pronounced as dd (bedding) or th (as in bydd).
    You're right though, Dadding does sound like something fathers would do. Term for tell awful dad jokes, perhaps?
