The concept art was AMAZING. I too had the good fortune to be at the aforementioned signing, and I must admit, I'm very impressed with what was shown. Especially what was on the laptop (EUOL brought a piece of FINISHED artwork... Said he'd be posting it soon)

I like how the continent itself seems to have been swirled like a storm. the shadesmar picture has me confused though. isn't shadesmar supposed to be the connection of all three planes of existence or something like that? why then is it a map of a large body of water? and does its outlining mean land? i'm confused...

What you're refering to is reamlmatic theory, which is the (in book) idea that each peron/thing exsists on three planes: Spritual, Cognitive, and Physical.  Spritiual exsists everywhere, and is where most magic happens, cognitive is just your thoughts and the way you think, and physical is bodies and junk.
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

The black is water, and the white is land.

But what happens if something in one realm is changed?

Didn't you tell me the answer to that question while we were on the phone?

Yes I did.  Ha ha.  I'm pretty sure that's what EUOL meant by "Ask Chris" so that's why I told you. lol.

Very exciting. Cant wait for this series to start ramping up. Should we start a new thread and start speculating about random stuff that has no confirmation yet?  ;D

Go for it.  That's what the site is for. ;]

You might not get much participation yet, but you will get a LOT once the first book comes out.  For now people might play with it for a while though.

I'm not worthy enough to start that high profile of a thread.. I lurk therefore I am.. a lurker that is. I think.

I kind of lurk too...I generally lurk for between 2 months and 3 years before people even realize I'm there (well...that's a habit I picked up AFTER my first foray into the world of fan communities).

I would be willing to not lurk if people constructively speculate.

Haha. I remember thinking this way. Some threads you just think "I can't start that thread. I'm not a big enough poster on this site yet." Start it anyway. It'll get you out of the lurking. And non-lurking is fun (plus, I need your titles for my list. And I can't get more titles for Death unless you become a regular....Why I am admitting this ulterior motive, I have no idea. But it's true. :P ).
