If GL members were Malazan characters...hmm

Best wait until Urby, Dost and McFagger (if he is reading) to makes some strides in the books hmm

Pretty sure there are more characters in Malazan than there are members in GL. Imo the footballers are Ascendants and GL members are their priests.

I'm in chapter II and struggling a bit,  the hell this is a tough read which needs 100% attention at every bit of dialogue atleast in the beginning I hope.

I think I understood everything I had to understand in 1st chapter/Prologue but in the 2nd one in the dialogue between Tattersail the sorceress and the Bridgburner I feel like that guy who arrives late at a discussion and doesn't understand what the hell they're talking about Laughing I'm hoping this is normal and I haven't missed much. I'm trying to take notice in every litle detail, but I still feel like I'm missing something.

Maybe should just get some sleep for now.

The Siege of Pale was amazing. Floating fortress, demons unleashed, "wings of ice", soulshifting, warrens. 9000 men and woman dead. Only the first battle aswell,

Again so many questions, what is an archmage, what's up with the Deck of Dragons and the "coin spinning", Sorry's importance, how did the Emperess become Emperess so quick, what really happened at Seven Cities - the old emperor and his First Sword etc... I think I'm not supposed to know most of these things yet.

Calot you absolute hero, I hope Tattersail gets to avenge him.

Loved this chapter despite the struggle in the beggining.

After 6 books in, i can say that Malazan is simply too big for any live action interpretation, but i feel it would do really well in a mature anime type format. Even though GoT has more main characters than is normal for a TV series, its got nothing on Malazan

Steven Erikson last year said on a reddit AMA that the only way he sees a visual interpretation of the series are movies...with each book having 3 movies (: Sure thing m8 studios are salivating to release 30 movies of a book series with a cult following.

That'd be impossible, can you imagine the budge they have to blow to generate CGI for Tlan Imass? Jaghut? What about Warrens and battles ffs

Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn, Stormlight, last 3 WoT books) said in an AMA that he'd consider giving a chance to animation with his series. Though his books (Bar WoT) aren't that big compared to Malazan and GoT.

I just think there's a general stigma in writers using others means of visual representation when its not a show/movie. Can you imagine if say Malazan was a video game? Before you shoot this down, just think of the Fire Emblem. Granted it'd be tough to execute but, holy cow imagine you controlling different squads each chapter, switching between Genabackis, Seven Cities, Lether, etc. This is just mindless presumption but it would be amazing if pulled off right.

Lmao you have the same thoughts I did after finishing the books. Yeah video game and anime is what I immediately thought. I never played Fire Emblem but a Malazan RPG would be so great, using Warrens to fast travel Proud And anime is the most realistic tbh if the series is to be adapted faithfully, live action would require a ridiculous budget.

IMO after TBH is when the series starts to decline a little, still a great read, but everything leading up to that was GOAT in my eyes.
