241- A Larger World

<< First < Previous Next > Most Recent >>

A couple of interesting things here. You've probably noticed Phoebe refers to her daughter (the character we've known so far as Lizzie) as Beth. Clearly, both of there as contractions for something (I'll leave you to figure out what). One of Arya's reccuring themes in the book is of changing identity, with so many identities there are quizzes online just to try and remember them (and that link isn't even close to all of them). I thought it would be nice to bring a bit of that into the real world.

Also, Harry Potter. One of the interesting things about the Darths and Droids world, is that the same media doesn't exist there as here, mainly as a result of the Star Wars films never being made. That's not really something I've covered in A Game of Roleplay, in large part due to the fact that the only consequence I can think of is that TV Drama and Fantasy novels aren't quite as popular as they are today. However, one thing that has changed from our world to the PC's is that the first Harry Potter book never achieved the media boost gained from beating A Game of Thrones as the next big fantasy series, despite the author's reputation (I'm sure I read somewhere that there was a big award that everyone thought was going to go to Martin, but ended up going to Rowling, but for the life of me I can't seem to find any evidence of this). As a result, the Harry Potter books never reached the same levels of critical acclaim. They still exist, but they're all fairly basic childrens books, not read by millions of adults. I've probably put too much energy into thinking about this, but come on, What else are you supposed to do in Statistics lectures...

Her name is Elizabeth and the parents are separated so they call her different things to... make her confused.

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Many thanks! dcdcbkgfkedb
