    cannibal man reacted to soulein in Books (fantasy)   
    Tolkien was great, and full of seemingly unintentional social, political and religious allegory. I really enjoyed The Silmarillion.
     
    Moorcock's Elric Saga is excellent. I have a love/hate relationship with Elric himself- I always enjoyed the cruel majesty of his race, even if he spurned it.
     
    Robert E. Howard doesn't get the credit he deserves for helping to create the fantasy genre, imo. His world was every bit as complex as Tolkien's and has just as many important observations about the world he lived in. Howard's Conan is intelligent, independent and every bit as loyal to his friends as he is terrifying to his enemies. I really enjoy the low/dark fantasy take on magic you get from writers like Howard and Moorcock, where magic is something on the periphery of normal human experience. It requires virgin's blood, souls and a sick mind. 
     
    Robert Jordan is the heir to Howard's throne in the realm of American fantasy, at least in my opinion. I read Wheel of Time in high school, and it really set the standard for me in terms of the quality and depth of epic fantasy. One thing I always like to reflect on about WoT, is how "American" the main characters are in their values and world view. I felt as though Rand al'Thor or Matrim Cauthon were very similar to people I knew growing up, and I'm still not sure if their values had a lasting impact on me, or if I merely recognized a little bit of myself in them. I should also note that Jordan was very good (2nd only to Howard) in portraying Conan of Cimmeria in any of the several short novels he has in the Hyborian Age.
     
    Glen Cook is simply awesome. His unique style and measured, realistic portrayal of humanity strikes a chord with the cynical bastard in me. The Black Company instantly stood out to me as a character in and of itself, reminding me a lot of the various Shadowbane guilds I've been a part of. The "it's us against the world" mentality of a tightly knit military unit is immediately attractive to the tribalist inside of all of us.
     
    The fact that Steven Erikson was inspired by Howard and Cook told me everything I needed to know about the series before I ever picked it up. I'm half way through book 10 of the Malazan series, and it's been an amazing heart-to-heart conversation with the author. The vast host of characters, places, organizations and ideas can be daunting, but the series is extremely rewarding for those who can commit to the task. Each novel begins with a number of disparate threads which ultimately converge together in a way that either delights and surprises the reader, or makes him inconsolable for about a week. Eriskon's Malazan Marines rival the mercenaries of the Black Company in terms of valor and martial feats accomplished, though they substitute the Company's cruel pragmatism for a warmer sense of loyalty to their fellow soldiers.

    I think this game is gonna be good though. Only one in development that really strikes a chord with me right now. Too bad it was like pulling nails getting some people to sign up for beta with me back in January.

    cannibal man got a reaction from Albert Rock in Which Archetype Do You Currently Like The Most ?   
    Frostweaver because I bet it can assault in solo play.
     
    Other than that reason, I don't have a favorite yet. I want a race that just says custard YOU to everybody and tries to do it ALL alone. Dark Elves would be a good example. Archetype wise, whichever one rapes poorly made socks, and quickly.
