    That, sir, was incredible. Many people predict the elf is a disguised Linear Guild member, but I don't think anybody saw that coming. I tip my hat to you.

    Edit: Mind you, I'm willing to see anybody prove me wrong and prove how clever they were.

    Biggest surprise in a long while.

    EDIT: I think one of the biggest points against a Linear Guild prequel book was that it would have to spend some time focusing on Yikyik and Zz'dtri--two very minor characters. If this isn't just another build-up to a punchline, I guess this would solve that?

    Well, that was the last twist I saw coming, and neither did all the other Playgrounders I suppose. Good job there, Giant!

    Holy macaroni! I did not see that one coming!

    So that's why Z'zdtri glared at Vaarsuvius, because s/he caused him/her to be taken away by the lawyers.

    The thing is Nale might just team up with Elan to overthrow Tarquin. The problem is that Nale would expect to rule in his father's place.

    Break Enchantment works, which is a level 4 spell i think. So Durkon should easily be able to deal with it.

    You know when Zz'dtri (well edit in correct spelling) was dragged off I thought "but isn't parody protected speech? Huh."

    I never thought he'd come back, though.

    That was an amazing plot twist! I was wondering a little while ago what had happened to Zz'dtri, actually.

    I guess that means Hilgya can make a return here...

    I note he's cut his hair since then.

    I also like the architecture, although I'm not sure where it is in the arena.

    I wonder how he got back to Nale.

    Robe seems warped.

    But somethings going to happen to Durkon, or Haley's statue will be stolen as hostage, or anything! Augh!!! I never expected Haley to be in danger!

    Not a problem -- Nale doesn't like hiding in the background. He'd expect to rule in the Empress's place.

    Well, looks like booting a character out by invoking legal complications way back did a pretty solid job of foiling speculation.

    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.
