The rift to Kelewan
« on: May 21, 2008, 05:54:41 PM »

Just curious. If you go to http://www.elvandar.com/midkemia.htm there is a nice big map of Triagia. At the top of the page it says "Can you find the rift to Kelewan?" Well, I don't think its labeled on the map, but if I recall, wasn't the rift on the edge of the Green Heart near the Grey Towers, maybe near Caldara? I may be wrong, so someone tell me exactly where the rift would be on that map. Also, it asks the same question on the map of Kelewan. So, where is the rift located on that map.

With regards to Feists books, that is one of my biggest complaints. I'm the type of person that ALWAYS looks at the map when geographical references are made. When I picture locations and landscapes in my mind, I want to know exactly where they are in reference to the other images that I have of the world in the book. Anyway, I get frustrated with Feist's explanations of locations, distances, traveling times, and especially when references are made to passes through mountains and their locations with reference to cities/forests/etc.

Thanks

PS--I'm almost finished with Honoured Enemy and it is one of the best books I've read in a LONG time. I'll explain why in a review post sometime soon.

The Rift to Kelewan is located at Stardock (in latter books and on that map). The Rift back to Midkemia is located near the city of Ontoset.

I think he means the rift during the first riftwar (Magician)
it was indeed near the grey towers, and next to the green heard

Yup, I meant the original rift that was used to enter Midkemia during the Riftwar. I was just trying to remember where it was on both worlds. I knew that on Midkemia, it was near the Green Heart and close to the Grey Towers, as it is referenced that the Tsurani spent much time fighting and looking for metal down in the mines, but I didn't have any recollection of where it was on Kelewan.

I could be wrong, but wasn't the rift in Tsuranuani near the Holy City (Kentosani)??
