Just like the subject says -- a thread to brag about your latest acquisition.

Well, it wasn't on ebay, but it was recent, and it was fun.

I went home to Wisconsin last week, and found my two old Thomas Covenant trilogies, complete and in their original boxes.  I'm having a great time re-reading them!   :D


Let mirth prevail!

Give it up Mark!  We all love Covenant!  Why, I even insisted on having White Gold for my wedding ring.

Maybe Covenant would depress me less at this point in my life.  :?

Back then, I believed in happy endings...sort of.

Even though I'm not a veteran of this forum, I wanted to chime in and say that I agree with Mark. I remember the dual-trilogy quite well and the only reason I read the second trilogy was due to the fact that I loved the world and the OTHER characters, not Thomas C. In fact, I remember becoming quite agitated several times when he was faced with life/death situations and he debated with himself whether to use his White Gold ring (the One True Ring :P ) to make a difference . . . I just wanted to slap the "feces" out of him :evil:

The giants with the stone work, the woman warrior (I think), the host of supporting cast, and the descriptions of the world & Lord Foul's minions were great, but in the end, the stories were depressing.

Well . . . .then I'd say you got the point exactly!  You're not supposed to really like Covenant all that much.  He's the antithesis of the prototypical hero.  He's flawed, he's weak, he complains and everyone just wants to "slap the shit" out of him.  He's surrounded by a cast of strong, intelligent and dynamic people in a world of beauty.  

But, despite all of this, only Covenant has the ring . . . only he can save the Land.

Sounds to me like you guys like it just fine!   :D

I received the RPGA modules I won a couple of weeks ago.  They're all in pretty good shape.  RPGA1 is has a bit of cover wear but otherwise is in great condition.  RPGA2 is in great shape.  RPGA3 has a little bit of highlighting and a small soda/coffee stain.  RPGA4 has a some highlighting and pencil writing.



How the seller could have missed the highlighting and noticed the pencil writing I'm not really sure but it is concievable that someone quickly paging through the modules might not have noticed.  Overall I'm quite happy with them.

LOL, Precisely.............

The White Gold Wielder was no supposed to be loved by the masses. His mission was to whine and in the end (Hopefully) save the universe.
HEY!  Tommy boy, do you want some cheese with that? :roll:
My vote goes to Thomas Covenant for King!!!!  :lol:

You may be interested to know that Donaldson is working on a third trilogy. First book came out a little while back called Runes of the Earth.

The Third Chronicles are a tetralogy -- The Runes of the Earth, Fatal Revenant, Shall Pass Utterly, and The Last Dark -- that are currently being written. As of this writing (26 Oct 2005) The Runes of the Earth has been published and Fatal Revenant is mostly complete

Fair enough, I think when I first read about it SRD was sort of undecided if he would write three books or four.  Perhaps he liked the sound of "tetralogy"?

We may be waiting a long time ... just checked wikipedia and if it is correct

The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
The Runes of the Earth -- (2004)
Fatal Revenant -- (publication planned for October 2007)
Shall Pass Utterly -- (expected late 2011)
The Last Dark


I think I may hold off on reading the series for the time being.
