It's hard to explain without spoilering things for you, but it follows a traveling executioner named Severian. It's WEIRD.

Wouldn't really translate well into a game, though.

My votes goes to The Black Company, although I'd settle for a tv series.

Im the same with Wheel of Time, the writing style is flaccid to me. Im going to try again because apparently its a good series, you should do the same so people dont call you out for having no attention span or other buzzwords.
>>
>>283716234
yeah it took me three attempts personally to actually finally get into the Wheel of Time series. For me it was worth it personally and I enjoyed the first two or three books I actually finished (need to remember where I was up to).

It's probably worth it to give it another chance.
>>
Not a book but I'd like to see a Reboot mmo
>>
>>283711549
Would it take place in the world or as the specifically as the main character? I forget his name.

An in-depth torture game sounds fun.

Personally I'd like to see a Malazan SRPG. Mostly because I love me some SRPGs and the genre would keep faggots away from Malazan. The last thing I want is people shouting "LOL WITNESS! KARSA IS SO COOL!"
>>
>>283715327
Really? I'm not so sure. I felt that the first book was probably the weakest of the series. I sort of got the impression that Cook didn't really know what he wanted to do with the series yet.

The later books had some great side characters as well. Ram and Blade were total bros.

Malazan: Book of the Fallen. Far superior to ASOIAF in my opinion. And the ten book series is actually finished, as opposed to waiting indefinitely for the next book.

Malazan is way too high fantasy for my tastes. It starts to sound like DBZ after a while.

I think the DBZ aspects only come from the fan community who constantly argue over all the different characters power levels like faggots not realizing its pretty much irrelevant since almost nothing in BOTF is decided by 2 characters throwing down balls out without the intervention of some god, sorcery, ambush or other trickery.

Maybe hood vs reverence

I dont think this would translate well. Aside from the untrustworthy narrator, the series relied heavily in the belief that technology can be seen as magic. It would be hard to portray this using actual technology which we all have at least a basic understanding of.

A gothic/surrealist fantasy novel focusing on an unfathomably large and mostly abandoned through disuse castle-city filled with bizarre and neurotic characters. It's fucking amazing.

>A doomed lord, an emergent hero, and a dazzling array of bizarre creatures inhabit the magical world of the Gormenghast novels which, along with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, reign as one of the undisputed fantasy classics of all time. At the center of it all is the seventy seventh Earl, Titus Groan, who stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that form Gormenghast Castle and its kingdom, unless the conniving Steerpike, who is determined to rise above his menial position and control the House of Groan, has his way.

Elantris doesnt have a sequel right? I don't see why it needs one really since the books whole gimmick was solved and it was kind of weak and questionable anyway.

It's the first of a trilogy, actually. No fucking clue what Book 2 and 3 are about since they'll never be written. Book 2 has some of the main cast's children in it.
