This thread is about your favorite place in in all of Feist's books.

For example, You can say:My favorite place is Elvandar.  Explain about it a little bit.
It doesn't have to be a place where half the book took place.  It can be a small setting .

Ill start it off

My favorite place is the Fortress of Despair
KOF  BIG spoiler
Spoiler: show
Fortress of Despair is where Kaspar sentences Tal for failing him (even though he didn't.  I like it because its very different than anything else.  You kind of live and breathe with Tal there and you go through his pains.  I was glad when Tal didn't kill his guards because I actually ended up liking them even though they chopped off his arm  :tongue: .  


That was a short one, you can go on longer.

Hello all!  Hall of Worlds Newbie but REF fan Jim here!
Nice to meet you all!

There are a few locations in REFs books which I loved, not just because they were either particularly happy or because a lot of the story took place there, but simply because the imagery was so fantastic.

The first would have to be Moraelin.
Spoiler: show
When Arutha, Jimmy etc went in search of an antidote for the Silverthorn poison, Feist described with great precision the general look and feeling of the Ancient Valeru place.


I think as much as anything, the feeling of fear conveyed by ancient city gives you a great picture in your minds of what it was like for the party to stand on the mountain-top overlooking Moraelin.

My favourite place althogether, however (call me a die-hard Magician fanatic if you will), has to be Crydee.  
Spoiler: show
The sights, sounds and smells of the old keep never losts its appeal, and kept the vision alive right from where Pug lays eyes on it as he approaches in Magician, until generations later where the young prince Nicholas experiences the same feelings over 20 uears later.  Perhaps it has something to do with the imagey and feeling of the 'Helms Deep' battle of Tolkien origin, but I absolutley love the feeling conveyed as Arutha stands defeding his keep against the first Tsurani invaders.  Looking out over the wall to where his foe stands, then back inside to where the people of Crydee stand gathered! - Great stuff

Welcome to the Hall Jim, why don't you introduce yourself in the Entrance forum. BTW I love your sig (very cool).

For me I want to see Elvandar, the Holy City in Kelewen, City of Kesh. there are so many different styles of designs and lifestyles.

Probably Novindus, as a whole. Just love the whole feel of it through the Serpentwar Saga and in Exile's Return, the feel of a new nation.

Well, I have to say I loved the thought of Rillanon. I can just imagine it with sun beating down, streets alive with people and all the bridges (dunno why I thought of the bridges) and the palace, so beautiful. :elf_smile:  :lol:

Yeah, Rillanon would be another great place. For some reason I always remember the bridges too!

I'll agree with Jim too, and say that Moraelin was another fave.
But then... it's in the Northlands, which leads back to my original post... :lol:

I have two.
Armengar
Just think how it is described in Darkness.
Enough Said

The second one is The Abbey of Ishap at Sarth.  The description of the place, in addition to what it contains makes it intresting to picture.

This is similar to the place you'd like to live thread. For me it would either be Elvander or Krondor (for obvious reasons).

The City Forever....I have always wanted to see a Feist story take place in that location...maybe have Tal dropped off there, and have him fight his way back, using only what the city can provide, ala' Kaspar/Exile's Return....

I have two favourite places:
The first would have to be Kendrick's. The atmosphere there seems so warm, especially the kitchen. If i could choose anywhere to work and/or live that would be the place.
The second is Sorcerers Isle. I don't know why but the idea of a heap of people from distant lands, working together seems great.

I must say there's something about Crydee that keeps drawing my thoughts.  It's the place where this great saga began.  The simplicty of an outpost of civilization on the far coast is attractive.

I think I would like to live in the Garden, but I think I recall a nasty creature there when Pug and Tomas were there. Still, it seems like a nice place and for the mere simple word that it's a garden means a lot :) Should be quiet too, but the thought that an architecture could be a living organism can be a bit daunting at first....will have to get used to it. *wonders if she's babbling....*
