Is it book 2 or 3 that has the goddess of hunger? Because there's that scene at the dinner table where she takes offense....literally one of my very best favorites. :p:eek::LOL:

Inheritance is more traditional fantasy, whereas Broken Earth...isn't. I read Broken Earth as it was released, and it's probably about time for a reread. It's hard to fully appreciate some stories when you're reading them with 12-18 months gaps between each book.


There is literally nothing I can say about that that couldn't be construed as a spoiler, including saying it's not a spoiler. The book has been out for years; it's been discussed on this forum before. But, alright. Comment removed.


Dungeon Master of Middle-earth
Poul Anderson? Was a big influence on D&D iirc - maybe in Appendix N?
Yes, it's clearly a major influence which is why I was interested. It's the source for Law and Chaos and regenerating trolls and features familiar D&D creatures like dwarves, goblins, kobolds, giants, dragons, unicorns, and nixies.

ETA: Also a slightly different take on elves and a werewolf

Which Poul Anderson series is the best? Goodreads is listing:
  • Future History of the Polesotechnic League
  • Time Patrol
  • Flandry
  • And this Otherworld Saga (includes Operation Chaos and Operation Luna)

I forgot to say the protagonist of "Three Hearts" seems to be the inspiration for the paladin class.
