11:54 am - Phedre pictures at Dragon*Con 2007

I know I saw at least one Phedre at Dragon*Con 2007 - if you have a picture of her, or are her, would you let us see the costume? It was wonderful.

Hi there Carey fans! I wanted to invite those of you who are interested in roleplaying games as well as fantastic fantasy novels (clearly you must be the second!) to come and join us on KushielMUX, an interactive and immersive RPG that the author herself plugged on her October website update!

KushielMUX is a roleplaying game based on the Kushiel's Legacy series, where people interact via "poses" (essentially a paragraph of text describing what your character is doing, thinking, saying, and so on) and craft a niche for themselves in an interactive game world. You can either download what's called a "MU* client" or "telnet client" or use Telnet.exe itself, found in c:\windows (but the clients are much better). Our Wiki holds a full and detailed explanation on how to connect to the game and begin playing.

Our game, in specific, is high political intrigue mixed with large, arcing plots and stories. It's set 150 years after the end of the Kushiel's Legacy series. Things have changed somewhat - the Skaldi have become slightly more civilized, the Caerdicci have become more xenophobic, and there's a brewing war between the Hazaran (Mongols) and the Hanzu (Chinese) that threatens to spill over into the West. The last of the Courcel line has died out with whispers of scandal attached, and a new royal family was just crowned to continue the the country's tradition of monarchy. How well they will be received is anyone's guess!

Interested in playing? It's incredibly fun and can be quite immersive. Our Wikipedia page shows full and simple explanations on how to get started and how to play, and there's a ton of help files in the game itself. Our staff is also friendly and experienced, and will help you with everything you need.

Our Wiki page is here: http://kushiel.wikispaces.com

Hi, I'm new to this community, although not to the series. My name is Maire, and I live in South Florida.

I was wondering if anyone had any information on the new book in the series that was recently published, Kushiel's Scion?
Thanks so much!

3:01 pm - Opinions needed...

Hello, this is my first time posting but I've been having a bit of an issue and was hoping perhaps someone out there might be able to help me.

I've been trying to find some good descriptions of the pantheon of Terre D'Ange. There's quite a few descriptions on what most of them stands for, or represents, or fathered, but thus far the only one's I've found any kind of descriptions of are Asmodel and Mara (which really aren't technically part of the pantheon.) If someone could help me out, point out a page or even your own impression of their appearance (hair, eyes, face, style, clothing, etc.) that would be absolutely marvelous.

I've only just got around to joining (after a long period of lurking) and it's great to find a place for passionate Kushiel fans. I'm 17, Australian, in my final year of school and have ambitions to be a writer. I love all the characters but particularly Delaunay (swoon), Phedre and Melisande. I'm also very interested to find out more of Rolande and his character. I think Jacqueline Carey has created an incredible story and characters and is one of the very few epic fantasy novels I like. Otherwise I love to read anything and everything but in fantasy it's Tolkien, Rowling, Juliet Marilliner, Mercedes Lackey and Isabel Carmody. Otherwise looking forward to getting to know everyone :)

2:52 pm - For those of you that are interested:

I did a photoset based on the scene in Dart where Melisande leads Phedre around the Midwinter Masque. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing it.

There is some artistic nudity, nothing obscene. If you would be offended by that don't click the little button.

I call it "the fall of an anguisette."

12:19 am - A Hello to the Masses and my Book Recommendations

Hello. I'm Amy, well that's my given name anyways. I'd much prefer it if you called me Jade as that's the name I've taken to using but I will respond to my real name despite my hatred of it. I find Amy is boring and common. My mother wasn't even nice enough to spell it wierd. Anyways I'm 18 years old. My freinds admonish me that it only means I'm legally adult that I'm not there yet in terms of maturity (they've no room to talk so I don't really listen).I'm a senior at Troy High School in Troy, Ohio. I'll be attending Bowling Green State University in the fall to major in Integrated Laungage Arts. I got my accpetance letter this afternoon. I have two brothers, both younger. One is 16 with a birthday in april and the other is 15 with a birtday in march. I was in foster care up until a week before the start of school. I've played the violin since the fifthe grade if you take into consideration my year off while at Graham becuase they had no orchestra program and this year becuase I'm playing the Cello. I did name my instruments my violin is The Lady and my Cello is Sir Cello. I'm a DBZ fanatic and have fanfics of FF.net. You can link to it through my main account. Mostly I write Buruma/Vejiita fics and Trunks/Pan fics. Those would be my current kick. Though I am doing a DBZ/InuYasha crossover. I'm an anime junkie overall. And I like alternative rock though I overall listen to pretty much anything. I can't think of anythign else about me so on to the book nerd half of this.
I finished the books maybe five months ago. I actually found them by accident. I got Kushiel's Dart at the used bookstore and was addicted from there. I don't own all three. I'm still lacking Kushiel's Avatar, my granmother has decided now that I'm not in foster care I can get my books from the library on rent. In any event I loved them and actually read them all in like a two month period(only becuase I couldn't get to them all right away). The Kushiel books are not my only favorites. I'm also an avid addict of Brian Lumley's Necroscope books(which may soon become a movie, yay!) I recomment them to anyone here. They're the best. I'm also very fond of Mercedes Lackey and the novels of Valdemar. Another great series. And Sarah Douglass. Her Wayfarer Redemption books are absolutly the best. I adored them. I devoured them. I highly reccomend them to anyone here. You liked these you should like those. And if you're into actaul romance with a hint of science fiction you might try the Carpathian books(any of them beginning with the word Dard) by Christine Feehan. I think I've taken up enough space though. And I welcome anyone who feels they want to, to talk to me.

5:21 pm - Jaqueline Carey to appear at Confusion

According the Ms. Carey's offical site she will be attending Con Fusion in Troy Michigan. I won't get to go cause I am all the way in Mississippi, however I just wanted to pass the new along to ya'll in hopes that someone in the community might be close enough to actually get to go, and can meet here and then post all about it.

Oh and I was thinking about maybe proposing an art contest this month once exams are all settled. Ms. Carey features gift art on her site and I think it would be really great if we could get some work from the LJ community on her offical site.

Let me know what ya'll think.

1:31 pm - Greetings!


I just joined the community. I read the whole series about 6 months ago, and I absolutly loved it. I am trying to find other fantasy/romance novels, but none seem to be as good as Kushiel's Dart Series.

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself to the fandom, and I look foward to reading up and interacting with the rest of the community.

7:40 am - Looking for a particular piece of art of Jacqueline Carey's Phedre and Melisande

Last Pennsic War I was wandering around the merchant's area and came across a positively gorgeous piece or art depicting Phedre and Melisande. I cannot recall too many details of it, but I recall it was amazingly beautiful and I wanted to own it badly. But did not at that time have the money. Now I am attempting to track it down.

Has anyone seen or heard of this piece, either online print shop type deal or only in real life? Because I want to track it down and buy a copy now that I can afford to...


current mood: hopeful

9:31 pm - Madame Carey is truly wonderful!

I wrote a quick, impulsive note to her (the Kushiel's series author) via her website which said:

And lo and behold, she replied with:
Dear Sara,

Thanks very much for your kind note! I'm delighted that the books are
finding such a wonderful readership. I'm glad you finally succumbed to
your boyfriend's persuasion and gave them a try. :) Best of luck to you
in your own writing endeavors!

Happy New Year,

- Jacqueline Carey

I truly love authors who give such time and affection to their fans, who realize that without us they would have no career.

So, ROCK ON MADAME, Carey! *grin*

current mood: impressed
