    Hm, who was it who called 'overcomplicated plans' being the inheritance?

    It also explains why his mom was a waitress for so long instead of running the place after a while
    Iíve known people who play chess like this. They canít think their way to a checkmate, so they spend their time trying to clear the board of the little pieces. This eventually reduces the game to a simplicity they can grasp, and theyíre happy. The perfect war is a foolís mate.

    Looks like Nale inherited his love of overly complicated plans from his mother. Also I think the Empress of Blood is trying to become the size of a dragon that can cast arcane spells rather than age normally.

    That was brilliant, particularly the overly complicated serving plan.

    Yes, this is pretty much explicitly stated as what she's trying to do.
    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.

    And now we know the REST of the story.

    Nice. ;)

    But Nale has inherited the love of the dramatic... so that symmetry does not really create a spark...

    So... Elan's mom is a Wile E. Coyote type, eh? Hilarious!

    Speed of updates is best described as 'dizzying'. Thanks!

    So .. that settles the alignment debate, at least as far as I'm concerned. Tarquin keeps his commitments (to the Empress) but is willing to conquer a kingdom for his own. Unconcerned about the welfare of others while willing to sacrifice it for his own personal gain.

    Ergo, Lawful Evil.

    ETA: I would DEARLY love to see the sword fight between Nale and Tarquin fully rendered in the book as a supplement. Can I get a HELL YES?

    E AGAIN TA: And now we know what Nale meant when he told Elan: "No one denies me. Not you. Not father. Not anyone."

    His father denied him by refusing to give him the crown he wanted. So he's been throwing a temper tantrum ever since.


    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    Seems Elan's dad is evil for buisness reasons at this point rather than evil for being evil. Might have even slipped into Lawfull Neutral (big might). And he is very practical. He and V should get along farily well.

    Lawful Evil, but of the type that could be a Villain Protagonist.

    And of a more agreeable type than Belkar, too. Affably Evil?

    No, Nale HATES the dramatic, he just can't help himself. Likewise, Elan can't help creating ridiculous plans, even if he doesn't want to.
