    I like *this* so recommend me.....

    K, so complete list of fantasy set in the current time: Dresden Files. Percy Jackson Harry Potter Artemis Fowl Ahh I let Google help. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contemporary_fantasy I have read Seventh Son, though only in the Swedish translation. I wasn't all that fascinated by it when I read it.

    I like *this* so recommend me.....

    I like magic story lines set in the current time. Harry Potter is among the few published works I can name in this genre, can somebody expand on this? I am not interested in vampires, werewolves and so on. It is fine if they are a part of the setting, but not the focus.

    Series Recommendations...with conditions

    That isn't true, lots of people die, even a few good ones.

    the Forgotten Realms books

    Yes it fulfils all his criteria. The quality is high though and some of your points can be argued, which I will. It was some time since I last read this and thus I might not recall details correctly. I don't find the "spiders" evil. I find them animals in this world, thus neutral. Kind of like...

    Malazan Book of The Fallen Question

    The Malazan series is a bit heavy to get into for some people. I never noticed that problem myself, but heard others dropping it due to that.

    Do you want new forums?

    Layout can be fixed in phpBB as well. Just selecting a new layout style/theme/template for it. I just want to inform, I am not for or against migrating forums. :)

    Do you want new forums?

    Having comments being part of the forum would be nice. That would mean as comments are posted on the best lists you also get to see that they have been made in the forum. Creating a discussion around each title in the list would be the goal, not sure if it would be fulfilled. Spoiler tag is...

    What takes you out of a story?

    I also find myself skimming descriptions, remembering height and hair color is pretty much all that matters. Other details that are important will be mentioned again. I can never remember eye color at all, I don't even notice it in "real life".

    Tell, who knows about calling cards.

    Why not use internet communication. Skype is preferred, a mic and speakers/headphones on each end along with a connection and it costs nothing.

    What takes you out of a story?

    Bad grammar or spelling. It brings forth the editing beast within. On online amateur stories I drop it directly due to that, even if it is generally well liked. It is simply impossible for me to read. The few mistakes usually left in a book are also show stoppers, but only for a minute or so...

    What is the best RPG?

    With the problems involved in getting them to run on many newer setups, no. If you are used to medium complicated computer usage with emulators acting as a filter and even have them installed, then they are worth it. They won't be as good as many new games if you don't have that sentimental...

    What is the best RPG?

    The problem with your list for me is that I've owned like a total of three consoles in my life and the PC is one of them. So I havn't played half of those games you listed. I havn't even owned a PS2 so I can't be sure but I heard the BG game on PS2 was an action rpg. I don't think it was called...

    What is the best RPG?

    Do you mean to say you beat baldur's gate 2 in 12 hours? A normal play through is easily 40 hours with a full run taking upwards 100 hours. If this forum had a spoiler tag I could post the baldur's gate 2 story from memory for you. Secondly, how is a turn based, group based rpg with a pause...

    What is the best RPG?

    I think any Bioware game beats any game in the FF series. That is just my taste speaking though, I don't like the style of the FF games while liking Bioware's focus on story telling. Bioware titles include Baldur's Gate series, KotOR, Mass Effect and NWN. There are many other good RPGs, but I...
