Re: Dragonriders of Pern games

Re: If You Were to Impress...

Well, Bronze, of course! :)

I think I'd make an excellent Thread-Fighter, although I'm scared to death of heights, but I do like flying. And, I am a cocky bastard when it comes to driving, I'm...

Re: Screenwriter hired for Pern movie(s)

I don't recall which book it was, but somewhere it was mentioned that a dragon 'sounds' a little like their rider when telepathically speaking with another human. That wound make it easier to find...

Re: Screenwriter hired for Pern movie(s)

Re: Dragonriders of Pern games

I'm not familiar with the video/CRPGs, but the board game interests me a lot.

You can look up pics of the board game at BoardGameGeek; they have mixed pics of 1st & 2nd edition, and a brief...

Re: Lessa's actions

Lessa never dealt with Dragonmen, or DRAGONS before, even though she knew what her power was, she never expected anyone else to possess these talents. That would add to the uncertainty of the...

I've always pictured a young version of Ed Lauter as Toric. (Yeah, he's probably too old for that role now, too...) ;)

Mila Kunis as Lessa, please! Sure, she does a lot of comedies, but she can pull off romance very well, as in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", one of my favorite comedies.

Re: Would a Hatchling Impress to..

I find it hard to label anyone as truly good or evil. Everyone has a degree of both within them, and that is one of the reasons why I love DRoP series; the characters are rich with this philosophy....

Todd's 3rd Pass rules (IIRC from Sky Dragons) on greens is that they can clutch until they chew firestone, and it is the firestone that renders them infertile. I don't recall anything about blues...

Re: How long will marks last?

I believe the marks were laquered, and if my memory is correct (?) in Dragonsinger or Dragonsong, Piemur holds some white, shellacked marks. If they aren't white, I must have imagined them so.

Re: Fax and Gemma

I believe that the only hold that Fax came by legally was Crom, and his marriage to Gemma. Fax then killed Gemma's family, and then took direct control over Crom, IIRC.
