  1. In Topic: Iron Bars location

    16 January 2023 - 06:50 PM

    Even worse, Iron Bars actually begins RCG in the southern Rust Ocean, which is east of Genabackis and northwest of Assail. After all the effort to escape Assail and reach Lether alluded to in MT, he practically winds up back where he started. In addition to Coltaine's suggestions above, it's just as likely to be just a big oversight by Esslemont. The two authors have admitted they do very little coordination with each each other for the books, instead relying on their shared memories of the role-playing games that became the skeleton for the novels' storylines. Iron Bars did not originate in those games and was invented by Erikson for MT. So Esslemont might have just missed or forgotten his brief cameo in RG, and the Rust Ocean seemed as likely a place to maroon him as any.
  2. In Topic: Are Email Notifications from Messenger Conversations broken?

    Coltaine and I were just noticing our email notifications are working again. So thanks to whomever resolved the issue!
  3. In Topic: KR vs GOtM Questions

    02 January 2023 - 02:29 PM

    Welcome to the forum!


    We know from the GotM Dramatis Personae that Whiskeyjack was once commander of the 2nd Army, so he does outrank Dujek in the prologue. The commander ranking likely is equivalent (or near equivalent) to a Fist. In this early book, some of the Malazan terms and concepts are not quite set in concrete yet. These types of discrepancies appear so often in the first book, they get referred to as GotM-isms.


    I wouldn't necessarily assume Fiddler has any official ranking. He's more than likely just a trusted subordinate passing on his commander's orders.


    Paran is in Malaz City with his father. House Paran has vineyards on the island and father Paran is said to be in the city to negotiate export tithes at the time of the riots.
  4. In Topic: Question about prologue

    17 October 2022 - 11:16 PM

    1.Ullara is the girl with the birds. There's been some reader speculation that she was referred to during this one line of dialogue taking place in Cawn in Return of the Crimson Guard, Book 2 Chapter 3. But there's never been any confirmation the two are connected.

    Quote

    But there's an old woman here who claims to be a witch. Says she can see through the eyes of birds. Says she'll look for a half-silver.''


    2. Ryllandaras is both a Soletaken in the Esslemont books and a d'ivers in his Deadhouse Gates appearance.
  5. In Topic: Need some info on Letheras

    17 October 2022 - 11:05 PM

    I'm assuming you've checked out the Letheras page on the wiki? I combed through the two main books that deal with Letheras (Midnight Tides and Reaper's Gale) to add as much as possible to that page. It's got a whole section on landmarks and a number of links to other pages with more detail. There's more general cultural information for Lether as a whole on the Kingdom of Lether page. That said, there really isn't a ton of detail regarding the information in your first point. If anyone does come up with anything on this thread, I'll be happy to update the wiki.

    Whaaaaat? People complain about the wiki?
    I think it's pretty bloody good!
    And if some whinging twats want it to be better, they can always get off their fat arses and help.
    But of course not, that involves more than being a neckbeard keyboard warrior living in Mum's basement.
    SMH, some people expect the world for nothing.
    F**k those idiots, the rest...
