  • Ep 105 "The Wise Man's Fear" Ch 90-91: Livin' on a Prayer
    by Mandy, Erin & Xavier on January 12, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    In this episode we cover chapters 90 To Sing a Song About & 91 Flame, Thunder, Broken Tree in Patrick Rothfuss' best selling fantasy novel "The Wise Man's Fear" the second book in The Kingkiller Chronicle series. Kvothe's party has finally located the bandits, with no thanks to Dedan and Hespe. The group manages to surround the bandits camp- and then all HELL breaks loose. We discuss the long-suffering group dynamics and Kvothe's attempts to make the defiant Dedan submit to his authority. We speculate (ship) over Tempi and Kvothe's quiet moment together before the fight. Why do their foes seem more like soldiers than bandits- and what exactly are they doing out there? We talk all this and more! _______________________________________________________ Links: Support the show on Patreon: Patreon.com/casterquest Visit CasterQuest on the internet: CasterQuest.com Leave CasterQuest a review on Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/casterquest-the-kingkiller-chronicle-book-club/id997376997?mt=2 Visit the ESO Network, your station for all things geek! esonetwork.com ____________________________________________________________ Credits: As always, we are incredibly thankful to the talented musicians who have granted us the use of their music.

Kvothe gets hustled into forming a DnD campaign to capture some bandits in the Eld that have been way-laying Alveron's tax collectors. It's a dangerously suicidal endeavor, so who would be better to lead the way than a 16 year old that you're in debt to? (Anyone... literally anyone.) On his way to the Eld, Kvothe comes across Garfield the Deals Tinker, and he's going to make Kvothe a great deal! We meet Kvothe's new companions- Bounty Hunters Dedan and Hespe, Tracker Marten, and a fidgety foreigner who is reportedly as deadly as he is awkward to have a conversation with. Will Kvothe be able to find the bandits without being murdered to death? Good luck, you just played yourself. **Sympathetic Spoilers Topics** 1.

    Episode 92 of CasterQuest recaps chapters 64-66 of "The Wise Man's Fear" the second book in the best-selling fantasy series "The Kingkiller Chronicle" by Patrick Rothfuss. The tension over the potential poison plot mounts, and Kvothe must make a choice- escape Severen or stay and possibly risk the wrath of the Maer and the culprits behind the scheme! Is Stapes as treacherous as he sounds? Will the Maer ever reward Kvothe for his service? What the heck is Denna even doing in Severen? Will Xavier approve Mandy's pitch for a romantic comedy? Find out! KKC News: Patrick Rothfuss was recently at a couple different events, the Joco Cruise and Emerald City comic con where he hosted panels and discussions and dropped some interesting food for thought. -He hinted that the trilogy might be a giant prologue to something else. -He mentioned he would like his friend Lin Manuel Miranda to be cast as Arliden. He also says LMM is now his best friend forever and they are going to live in a tree fort and play settlers of Catan, and that Lin smells like cinnamon and Xbox.
