      Do recall that when two posts are merged, the alerts for one of them disappear~

      I merged the first into the second, so the second kept its poke, but the quotation alert for the first is gone

      Some time in the next week or two, I want to get around to reviewing Infigeas and Epilogue. Both are pretty good and you should read them.

        Infigeas is about 3.5-4 stars imo. Epilogue is 4.5. Not sure if that comparison helps or not. Infigeas is interesting for a VRMMO, but it hasn't developed enough that I can really say whether it's must-read. It hasn't gotten far past the first major story-arc honestly

        The fact that you can choose not to be with the person you love, the fact that you can choose not to choose or to change your behaviour.

        As for that relationship with something like a God etc. that's something different.. .and I'm interested in talking about human love, about 'laic'/wordly love. Though the comparations is interesting.

        It made me remember what a teacher wrote, I think that It was Kidd "we learn everything, to be friends, to be lovers, to be parents, to be siblings" - the quote's written from memory and it isn't true to it's form.


        As a person 'grows', he/she'll reestablish his/her own inner world. That means that, as a person 'grows', he/she'll be subjected to posible changes.

        I'll borrow two words from your last post and combine them to form 'stagnancy in growth' - that's what can destroy a relationship. And, the time spent while being in love is also a type of growth.

        Hm, I feel that I'm going haywire so.. I'll stop here.

        Thank you, Femme Fatale & Acturus for the chance to have this conversation.

        No, there's no LitRPG at all. It's just fantasy. But the general style of the story is like Arcane Emperor. ... It's hard to articulate. It just feels like the same kind of story.

      Another series I'm late to, I've just finished Assassin's Apprentice. Farseer.... T'was not what I was looking for, really, in terms of magic. At least this first book. But I kept reading it anyway. It was... interesting. Somehow a bit difficult to read for hours on end, though.
      1. Westeller
        Westeller
        Dry? No.. No, it had tasteful humor and was entertaining. Maybe it was just the style. Somehow. It took me longer than it should have, anyway, and I kept looking up from it, to find something else to do for a bit.

        Despite that, I did like it.

        Yeah Assassin's apprentice isn't the most magic heavy that's for sure. Magic obviously plays a major role, but a long-running story arc throughout the various series is that we're seeing the return of magic from almost disappearing.

      I just read Nine Princes in Amber. ... It was appallingly mediocre and the author's reputation is completely undeserved. I mean, the story was okay as a concept, but the flow of it was just bad. I could have been reading a chinese webnovel, for all the quality it had.

        I remember it being kinda bad. But then again, it could have been like Eragon where I was immensely disappointed in comparison to the book

      You know, when I saw your small avi on my screen before, it always looked like a building at the beach, e.g. a castle... and I still subconsciously think that. Time and time again, clicking on your name and seeing what your avi's really made of gives me a surprise :'D

    5. A Young prodigy who came from a family that is heavily involved in industry, namely Kova World (not as elites or very wealthy). His mother also was a gifted engineer specializing in nanotechnology particularly with regard to robotics. After his prodigious intellectual talents and dedication to research were recognized, he was sent to Arch Education to develop his potential fully, as well as keep abreast of the trends in research for Kova, as an industry spy, since his family was a well-regarded and respected one in the company. Unfortunately for the management at Kova, Tal proved to care little about the "business" side of the reasons he was sent there and after funding his education with no gain, they cut him off and told him to return to the corporation. Arch was happy though to provide space for him to learn more and research under their watch, and Tal would work on whatever took his fancy, frequently aiding corporate rivals of Kova. He eventually became one of their finest and youngest postdoctoral students in Mechanical Engineering. That is until Tal came upon a strange man from another world. He had a few pieces of machinery that were unlike anything Tal had ever seen, automata that couldn't possibly work or do the things they did. Some of them which strangely seemed .... alive. This masked man left one of the more unique pieces, a spider named Spindel with a seeming intellect and other odd capabilities, as a gift for young Tal, who quickly became obsessed with this piece and the arcana by which it seemed to run. Unfortunately, this is where his downfall began. Where before Tal worked on projects that while esoteric, were still approved by Arch and frequently quite lucrative, he now devolved into working on this new unapproved project. And, even worse, after over two years of costly tests Tal had little progress to show for his fascination and was told by his supervisors that he had to give up his "hobby" and get back to "real research." Thinking to call their bluff, given the great research he had done over the past several years prior, he threatened to leave. However, it was all too easy for them to show him the door. Suddenly, largely destitute, with few friends/acquaintances, Tal found himself alone and homeless. He did manage to "procure" several of the smaller pieces of his research, including his companion, Spindel, before being forced out, vowing to prove himself before all those who doubted him and the validity of his backwards-seeming research. Settling down in District 11 among the industrial squalor, he remembers the final cryptic words that strange masked man told him before he left, "When you need assistance and are struggling to take the next step, go to the Prometheus Agency. You'll find what you're looking for there."
    6. Clockwork Researcher
    7. Occult(1)
    8. A thin and lithe young man of about 5'10" who is not one to shy away from getting his hands dirty, though by no means an athlete. Has a rather...strange style of dress which can be downright weird when his imagination takes him. Some examples:
      Normal (ish, he's still wearing a blindfold for no reason at all):[​IMG]Weird:[​IMG]
    9. Arrogant, yet insecure. Stubborn. Obsessed with his art/science and the fine line between the two that is his arcane studies. Very stubborn. Hates the mainstream. Ornery. Very curious. There's more to him, but a private man doesn't leave his whole personality out there.
    10. Agency Point: 0
    Also his spider Spindel is mostly just a sentient clockwork spider (about the size of a man's hand) and is probably the strangest and most powerful/versatile tool he has. It can't talk (yet?), but it communicate through gestures and such and can do cool spider-like things with some other minor abilities. He also has some other clockwork devices, namely his mask that lets him see the flow of magic through things and a gauntlet that enhances his grip strength and has some minor enhancements to climbing allowing him to reach places he otherwise could not.
