That's the thing. Why does the government spread false propaganda that the Middle East and Arabs and Muslims in general are our enemies? Why does the government hide what is really going on overseas? Why do we act as is we are the International-Police of Worldly Affairs? We seem to get in between every political conflict between two or more nations? WWII AN WWI were both times where we supported both sides. In WWII, we sold weapons to Germany, France, and the UK. We act is if we are completely innocent, when in reality, the "acts of terrorism" are just retaliations made by other countries who don't want to deal with our shit.
User avatar #660 - bearinganhourglass (08/07/2013) [-]
Granted, some acts of terrorism aren't deserved. Our government likes to make us think we're a republic, but we're getting farther from it. The government is gaining more control and the people won't do anything. Something's got to give, or we're going to end up like the society in V for Vendetta. The media is directed by the government. Their lies and invasion of privacy are "protection" for us, says the media. 1984 might happen too. Society is either blind, ignorant, stupid, or afraid to say anything.

It didn't look as interesting as the others to me but you never know.
Yeah it is pretty obvious lol. Why is it your favorite?

Cause Parry isn't evil, he is just filling his role and dislikes the role of God (JHVH) and challenges that constantly. He started out as a religious guy and wants what he thinks is fair for everyone and doesn't want to hurt anyone.. The symbolizing to the Bible was pretty cool and a lot of the ideology behind the whole thing was really intriguing. It even goes as far to model after the book of revelations with the archangel gabriel. I really like studying theology and how it effects society, for good or bad, it's all interesting to me.
User avatar #6 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
Norton is one of my favorite characters. He's a very selfless, honest, caring man. He also took a needed role, limiting his life to 40 years, knowing when he was going to die. It also gives the concept that there is a finite amount of time, considering he was going backwards, rather than forward. That book was just full of interesting, thought provoking ideas. So was On a Pale Horse.

I can understand why you like it. I do sympathize with Parry. Everyone thinking him evil.

That's so hard to say... the entire series is amazing, and all the books tie in so nicely. I think either Bearing an Hourglass, With a Tangled Skein, or On a Pale Horse (just because I'm a sucker for Zane)

Zane was a lot better later in the book. He was pretty annoying at first. I've just always loved Norton's personality. He was such a nice guy. War's book is good, whenever you get the chance to pick it up. My favorite scene in a book was from On A Pale Horse, though.

Most definitely big enough, I live in a small city now :3

User avatar #50 - anonmuncher (08/06/2013) [-]
That's a very good point :3 I'm in British Columbia, pretty sure it's the third most populated province of Canada, and for sure the most desirable place to live (coastal, border province in the mountains? Yes please). I'm sure I can find a decent book xD

Indeed it is! My mom got me into it when I was around 13, and we were both mindblown when we found out that a final book had been made over a decade later to wrap up the series. I still have yet to read wielding a red sword because it's a pain to try and hunt down even through libraries
User avatar #37 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
Ooh. Wielding a Red Sword is a pretty good one. My father actually got me the series for Christmas. I was shocked to see an 8th book in the package. Which one is your favorite?
User avatar #38 - anonmuncher (08/06/2013) [-]
That's so hard to say... the entire series is amazing, and all the books tie in so nicely. I think either Bearing an Hourglass, With a Tangled Skein, or On a Pale Horse (just because I'm a sucker for Zane)
User avatar #41 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
Zane was a lot better later in the book. He was pretty annoying at first. I've just always loved Norton's personality. He was such a nice guy. War's book is good, whenever you get the chance to pick it up. My favorite scene in a book was from On A Pale Horse, though.
User avatar #42 - anonmuncher (08/06/2013) [-]
I always loved Zane's rage towards the computer system of purgatory xD That thing was a real piece of work, and probably the bane of his existance at times. My favourite part can't be narrowed down specifically, because the biggest thing for me was finding out about all the interconnected relationships that you'd never expect between the characters.
User avatar #43 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
That was good. I absolutely loved when he went to collect the soul of the atheist. His soul just dissolved. By far my favorite scene.
User avatar #44 - anonmuncher (08/06/2013) [-]
I honestly keep forgetting that that series exists because it's so underrated. I need to try and hunt down those books again so I can re-read them. I don't have my mom's friends to mooch of anymore to borrow their copies xD
User avatar #45 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
I'm sure you'll be able to find them. When in doubt, use Amazon. Also, at my library, they sometimes order books in for people who want to read them. Does yours do that?
User avatar #46 - anonmuncher (08/06/2013) [-]
I moved cross country recently, so I haven't actually had a chance to check in to the local library since coming here. I've been seriously thinking about it though. Some of the best books I've ever read were from me going "Huh.. this seems interesting."

Be sure to plan a few hours. Some battles take a while. I would use a psycho as more of a villain, honestly. It's hard to play chaotic or evil characters with parties at first. Chaotic Evil characters usually get instantly killed. Also, I prefer D&D 3.5. Don't play 4.0. Ask anyone, it's terrible. Be sure to read the Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide.

I haven't read Under a Velvet Cloak yet, either. I own it, though.
Yes, Bearing an Hourglass is my favorite. Is it obvious haha. Why is For Love of Evil your favorite?
User avatar #5 to #4 - elitehacker (08/06/2013) [-]
It didn't look as interesting as the others to me but you never know.
Yeah it is pretty obvious lol. Why is it your favorite?

Cause Parry isn't evil, he is just filling his role and dislikes the role of God (JHVH) and challenges that constantly. He started out as a religious guy and wants what he thinks is fair for everyone and doesn't want to hurt anyone.. The symbolizing to the Bible was pretty cool and a lot of the ideology behind the whole thing was really intriguing. It even goes as far to model after the book of revelations with the archangel gabriel. I really like studying theology and how it effects society, for good or bad, it's all interesting to me.
User avatar #6 to #5 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
Norton is one of my favorite characters. He's a very selfless, honest, caring man. He also took a needed role, limiting his life to 40 years, knowing when he was going to die. It also gives the concept that there is a finite amount of time, considering he was going backwards, rather than forward. That book was just full of interesting, thought provoking ideas. So was On a Pale Horse.

I can understand why you like it. I do sympathize with Parry. Everyone thinking him evil.
User avatar #7 to #6 - elitehacker (08/06/2013) [-]
He was one of the stronger characters in all the books. Yeah they played around with tons of time tricks and twists.

You have a favorite part in On A Pale Horse? Mine was the atheist who committed suicide and what happened to him afterwards.
User avatar #8 to #7 - bearinganhourglass (08/06/2013) [-]
