  1. Bakker's The Greart Ordeal IV (spoilers): Demanding a Disputation

    I find it interesting that Nin'ciljiras and presumably his grandfather adopted the Inchoroi/Consult's ideology whereas the initial alliance was one formulated in terms of revenge against Cujara Cinmoi. The Viroi turned against Nin'janjin, but later Nil'Giccas condemned them to death or exile, and Nin'ciljiras was presumably one of these - so was Nin'ciljiras one of those Viroi who switched sides at Pir Pahal, later to be condemned? If so, what was Nil'giccas' motivation in condemning the surviving Viroi? And when did an alliance of convenience between the Inchies/Consult and Nin'janjin's line become one of shared ideology?

    I think it's unclear. Tsonos and Imimorul are definitely related, since Nin'ciljiras says something like "I am the last of the line of Tsonos, only I bear the blood of Imimorul." But they could be the same person or two different ones.

    Not only that, before he stumbles upon them having sex, Serwa and Moe try to tell him they're not related but Sorweel ignores it, despite being made aware of it earlier by the Zeumi prince.

    mmm, I'm gonna have to see the math behind that, while there wouldn't be any alpha or beta particles or other radioactive isotopes dispersed, I imagine an antimatter bomb would release a ton of gamma rays

    Yeah, they were beside each other. Though I don't know why Kellhus didn't put Kayutas in charge. Perhaps Kellhus knows ordering the Ordeal to eat each other will lead to damnation and would rather his spare his son than Proyas (or Proyas is already damned for sins committed in life).
  8. The Prince Of Nothing series is optioned for TV!

    Cnaiur and the Scylvendi are European-looking steppe barbarians. There's Asian-looking steppe barbarians on the other side of the Three Seas, but none of them make an appearance until the second trilogy - even then it's a bit role - Xonghis, the Imperial Tracker in the Skin Eaters and a prince in the Great Ordeal. And in terms of appearance Azhar Khan as Mobley in Mr. Robot matches Achmian more or less as he's described in the first trilogy (fat, bearded and brown), though he's too young.

    I believe she does, given her conversations with her father. Moreover, she trusts her father's judgement and he didn't tell her to teleport to Ishterebinth and bring down the mountain. From her point of view, Kellhus is, if not divine, superhuman and infallible (recall Kayutas' shock at Kellhus telling the Ordeal to flee). His limitations or even the basis of his abilities (the probability trance) are unknown to her beyond her mother explaining the Dunyain as Achamian explained it to her.

    The basis of Serwa's considering herself and her father as the only Real things is which itself is based on her ignorance of the darkness that comes before. For some reason, she views herself and her father as Self-Moving Souls, and now, apparently, Sorweel.

    Some of the Ketyai (Proyas, Conphas) are described as olive-skinned, so they can hire swarthy white actors for them. Esmenet is described as both olive-skinned and caramel at points, so iunno. Achamian is described as brown, though. Though as a brown person, it would bother me if all the Ketyai are cast as white guys except the Kianene, who'd they cast with brown people straight away due to their role as antagonists. There's also only one black guy in the first series (unnamed Zeumi sword dancer) and no Asians (why do I leave black uncapitalized but want to capitalize Asian?). In the second series, we get Pokwas and Malowebi, and Xonghis respectively. But I imagine they'd want to change characters to fulfill a quota and counteract criticism Salladhor Saan-style. Whose character could conceivably be changed to Zeumi?

    I can't imagine he's getting much for the option, unless there was a secret bidding war for the series we're all unaware of. But I don't doubt he'd take even a z-grade Power Rangers production level TV show to get more exposure for the books. Back to rank speculation, I know Lionsgate has been looking for new properties to produce, especially with their purchase of Starz and the hit their stock has taken on low market expectations despite revenue growth out of their TV portfolio (primarily thanks to Orange is the New Black and the piles of cash Netflix is throwing their way). Since Fantasy is in these days, Starz is a direct competitor with HBO and Orange is the New Black being tied up with whatever prior arrangements with Netflix, acquiring a bunch of cheap IP options to produce on Starz would be a sensible move for Lionsgate to make. So, on those grounds, if Lionsgate is the purchaser, then I think production is a real possibility due to the Starz deal. But if it's someone else, then it'll probably go sit in a catalogue indefinitely.

    I disagree if only because very generic Dragonlance/Forgotten Realms-setting high Fantasy is one of the most popular recurrent anime settings. Every year, the Japanese produce dozens of these shows, though most never become popular in the West. Re:Zero, a currently popular anime, is a good example. There just haven't been many - or any - attempts to do a direct adaption aside from Earthsea.

    Some Hollywood producers, like the guys from American Pie or something else strangely lowbrow, were trying to shop the rights around few years back, seems like someone is finally looking to buy. I wonder who though. HBO is probably looking for another big tent-pole series now that GoT is ending, but I can't imagine them buying PoN. I can see Starz or Showtime, though.
