Re: What is the tithe rate?

They may not have had hi-tech, but they did practice sanitation and used herbal medicine to great effect. They also had c-section. Most women died in childbirth, or right after because of poor...

Re: Domick and Menolly

Actually, it's only a couple of weeks between the wedding and when Menolly shows up at the Harper Hall. At the beginning of DQ, Ramoth has already laid her clutch, Menolly comes to the Harper Hall...

Re: Masterharper Of Pern Inconsistencies

That's an excellent suggestion and extremely plausible. It would explain many of the inconsistencies in MHOP.

On a side note, I have not been impressed by Todd's books, and I HATE Sky Dragons. I...

Re: Dragon size references

I actually think there shouldn't be that much difference in size between the gold and bronzes and the other colors. I especially think the blues and greens are WAAAAY to small. Think about it this...

Re: Masterharper Of Pern Inconsistencies

That's why you have editors. Also, if you're writing a series over several years, you're supposed to go back and reread your earlier books, and have friends read your copy so you don't have these...

Re: What is the tithe rate?

Also, I think your number of 500 dragons in a Weyr is too high. That may have been true in the earlier passes, but not by the 9th. In DF, when the Weyrs come forward, T'ron says they're bringing...

Re: What If: Jaxom Warns the Colonists

So, I was thinking, even though it's impossible in the Pern time travel universe for Jaxom to go back and warn them, there is an optimum time. He should show up on the Yokohama bridge right when...

Re: Why was Lessa's talent at hearing dragons important?

Dragons never collide with each other when coming out of between. There's a scene in AWOP where Ruth is coming into Landing, and Jaxom hears him give a startled exclamation and then shift. When...

Re: the death penalty

Actually, the penalty for murder is death. The men in AWOP were not condemned to death because it was decided that it was accidental homicide, not murder. And exiling someone to the islands without...

Re: Masterharper Of Pern Inconsistencies

I know this is an old post, but I have just recently reread MHOP and had to chip in. There are some MASSIVE inconsistencies that drive me crazy.
