  Oh... and here I was about to point to the similarities between the Golden Hart and the Unicorn from Amber... :unicorn:

I hate to admit it, but I haven't read the Amber books yet.

Hastur T. Fannon:

--- Quote from: jhkim ---Look, this is highly deceptive in the least.  The Golden Hart is the divine or semi-divine force which chooses the sovereign in Aldis.  Its direct intervention is generally limited to choosing and crowning the new ruler.  It has rarely appeared at other times.  It aided the original rebellion which formed Aldis by conferring immunity to sorcery to all those within sight of it.  It has also appeared twice in 300 years since to depose a ruler.  It does nothing to enforce the sovereign's rule, however.

So basically he's a horny Aslan?

(sorry about that - I couldn't resist it)

T-Willard:

--- Quote from: mythusmage ---You've never had a whitetail buck poke more holes in you than a cheap sieve. :) During breeding season the little shits are dangerous. Those antlers can do some serious damage. Elk and moose are a lot worse. A moose kick can drive your pelvis up into your guts. Believe me, when a half ton of bull elk wants you out of his way, you get out of his way.

Try visiting East Tennessee during rutting season and see how far you get with Bambi.

Really? They can be dangerous?

I'd never realized that, after living in bumfuck Washington State for all those years, I'd always assumed deer were short little rodents that bound through the grass and live peacefully with mankind after their escape from NIHM. :)

Seriously, I know all about Elk, Moose, and Deer, I lived in waaaaaay rural Washington State for a long time, and idiot deer used to dance around my backyard out of season all the fucking time. I hated the asswipes for eating my garden.
Yeah, deer can be a little dangerous, but holy shit, elevating the Golden Hart (Sounds like they ripped off the Golden Hind myself) to such preposterous levels, such as conferring immunity to sorcery and leading a rebellion twice in 300 years against a ruler, doesn't sound like that much better.

Someone needs to call Cerebus and Fenris and let them know their lunch got away.

Pretty fucking few, other than that both are magical animals and the Unicorn picks a King of Amber. Remember, though, that Unicorn was said King's Grandma (or was it Grandpa?)..

Zelazny was one wierd sonofabitch. God, I miss him.
