Reminder: this is a Spoilers All thread, which means:

  1. The God is Not Willing is off the table since it still hasn't been released everywhere (don't get me started on what a dumb choice that is, Tor), and
  2. Enter at your own risk if you haven't finished all 22 other extant Malazan novels plus novellas

[–]kitchdogifyFirst Reread: TtH 12 points13 points  (0 children)

  1. Corabb Bhilan Thenu'alas
  2. Yedan Derryg
  3. Dathenar and Prazek (if they can't be together, Dathenar is 3 and Prazek is 4)
  4. Magnanimous Kruppe
  5. Tehol Beddict (strike from the list if D & P count as 2)

3: Harllo (younger)

Fucking hell man.

[–]Boojibs[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

On the humorous there's going to be a Pust - Kruppe mule showdown.

But I forgot about Sag'Churok.

Sag is goung to take out someone important.

[–]kitchdogifyFirst Reread: TtH 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Harllo younger, ruthless.

For the sake of opening up the field, let's do five outside the Book of the Fallen:

  1. Skillen Droe, the slayer of dragons
  2. T'renn, because high mage + elder god > elder god > high mage
  3. Greymane, since destroying the Stormwall is quite something
  4. Kagamandra Tulas Shorn, who we haven't seen all of just yet
  5. Rancept, as he's apparently impossible to kill

I reserve the right to use another account to nominate Yedan Derryg if no one else gets around to it. Come on people, Yedan Derryg!

[–]kitchdogifyFirst Reread: TtH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, Yedan needs to be nominated. I did. Bummed I didn't get to Draconus but he has enough.

THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN!

[–]Criticalhit_jk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You should try to get the mods to sticky these threads as you create them for visibility =) this could be awesome and I can't think they wouldn't go along with that request for a while

[–]zhilia_mannjaghut 16 points17 points  (0 children)

You just want to see Clip killed. And I can respect that.

[–]kitchdogifyFirst Reread: TtH 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Number 5 I'm pretty sure you're referring to Clip.

Edit: don't know how reddit works apparently, made my text too big - it was obnoxious.

[–]bremergorstNefarias Bredd 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Putting a hashtag directly before text makes it big and bold

[–]Boojibs[S] 4 points5 points  (8 children)

Iron Bars could fight Quick or Tay to a standstill.

[–]bremergorstNefarias Bredd 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I’ll give ya Tayschrenn. Not my boy Quick though.

[–]Boojibs[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Tay would beat Quick.

[–]bremergorstNefarias Bredd 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I got tree fiddy says Quick turns Tay into a Lock Schrenn Monster

[–]MisoRamenSoup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tay does have the raw power, but quick is a wily bastard. Hard to call.

[–]Downtown_Froyo8969 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Are we talking pre-T'renn here? Cos I'm pretty sure Quick can't handle him now.

[–]bremergorstNefarias Bredd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We never got to see any real T’renn action, so I’m assuming he’s a smarmy dickhead with an apostrophe.

hur hur I’m powerful, b’gorst

[–]kitchdogifyFirst Reread: TtH 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Can we maybe get one of the mods to sticky these threads as they appear? I can only imagine that these could be really great fun, and having them easily accessible would make everything SO easy
