Writing Update #3 - January

Posted January 28th, 2024 at 07:46 PM by TGRF
TGRF's Writing Updates - January

It's been a bit, and progress has been made in the realm of writing. So as January comes to a close, it's time for another update.

Fan Fiction
I'm going to start with this section this time, because HS is ultimately what brought us all here. There remains to be no plans for future fan fiction. As always, there are a few random ideas floating around in my head which I never got to fully explore - they may some day turn into something, or not. Right now, focus is completely on my novels, with no room for fan fiction.

I should mention that I removed the last two books of the Dilmir series. The plot is significantly close to the plot of my novels, and I don't want future readers tracking Dilmir down and figuring out what comes next before I've written it. Yes, that means those of you who have read Dilmir have a good idea what is coming, but the general public does not. Don't spoil it for them, please. ...

Jedidiah mulroney

Well met!

I don't have a dog in this humt, either. However, . . .

I had a slight hissy fit over Bolt of Witherwood when Atlaga came out, but I got over it. [Sure. I did. ]

Utgar's Black Bullet
Once per game, before rolling attack dice with Jedidiah Mulroney, you may reveal the X Order Marker on this card to use Utgar's Black Bullet. If you do, you may roll 4 additional attack dice.

This is no worse than Mika Connour's Shadow Ambush or Othkurik's Lurking Ambush. How about making it terrain specific:

Braced Shot
If Jedidiah Mulroney starts his turn unengaged and adjacent to [one or more of the following: Evergreen, Ruins, Battlements, Jungle Bush, Palm Tree], you may reveal the X Order Marker on this card to use Braced Shot. If you do, you may roll 4 additional attack dice.

As for his being a leader

Captain Xue Playtest - 1/17/24

Well met!


Super excited to be testing Captain Xue at our next Gang gathering on January 17th. In anticipation of playing two games, I'll be fielding the following two armies in a 600 point, themed scenario of chas' design:

Women Only
150 WoA x 3
140 Eltahale
125 Captain Xue
60 Elaria the Pale
35 Seleena
600 points, 13 spaces

Soldiers, Warriors and Their Leaders
200 Romans x 4
125 Captain Xue
120 Venoc Warlord
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
595 points, 21 spaces

We'll be looking at how she plays, how much tweaking, if any, Captain Xue's Edge might merit, and, of course, what would be the best price for her. I'm also wondering if eschewing Elaria the Pale with her is ever a good idea, but the second army's theme requires it. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Rhythm of War: Quintessential Sanderson

Posted January 11th, 2024 at 03:38 PM by TGRF
TGRF Reviews: Rhythm of War

Yesterday I finished Rhythm of War, the fourth book in the Stormlight Archive. My past reviews of these books have been somewhat on the negative side, but I feel like this is probably the best book so far.

As I did last time, I will break the book into sections rather than critiquing areas such as character or plot. This is because each section is vastly different from the last, making it difficult to lump all of 'character' say into one category.

Ratings:
5: Amazing, above flawless.
4: Flawless, but doesn't really stand out.
3: Might have some issues, but works fine.
2: Has some issues which might detract from the media.
1: Flawed, bring the media down noticeably.

Title: Rhythm of War
Author: Brandon Sanderson
My Rating: 3.3/5 (should be higher)

Phase 1
The Stormlight books have followed the same general pattern: they start out...
