I didn't want to be the one to start another Rothfuss thread, but this Penny Arcade comic needs to be shared.

Isn't Rothfuss also contracted for a television show?

One which potentially end before he finishes?

He is, yes. I just have huuuuge issues with PA I won't get into here, lest I derail the topic even more.

Penny Arcade has issues but I should point out, stopped clock, their two comics on KC are spot on.

But i will say we already know how it's going to end:

* Kvothe finds out he's a Lackless

* Kvothe finds out Lackless knows about the ancient conspiracy to save the world by any means.

* Kvothe finds clue to fight Chandarians.

* Magic comes back.

* Ambrose becomes King, Kvothe kills him.

* Denna dumps his ass because he ruined the world.

I also predict Denna will marry Ambrose in a scene reminiscent of the opening of Gallavant.

CT,

Has magic left Temerant?  They have naming, sympathy, sygaldry, alchemy, grammery... etc.

Not really but there's no wandering packs of monsters running around like there is in the Inn at the beginning.

That's new.

He likes writing and wants to write. I think he should just announce "Done with Kingkiller, sorry. I may return some day in the future, but for now, I'm going to standalone novels."

I'm sure he knows every inch of how much is left in ASOIAF. I am also sure he's not in an emotionally healthy place to continue with day 3. It's time to walk away and give closure (although not the preferred kind) to the fans and to himself and possibly give himself a future writing more books in addition to all that important TV development, making money from selling trinkets, and hanging with important famous people.

Not sure how serious you are but I don't think he has to worry about money.

I can think of another author who should follow par.

Yeah they've been completely out of touch for years now. Also all the MRA shit that goes on.  It's a shame I used to like them in the early 2000s.
