This is by far the most complicated rig I've ever built myself. It's fun doing the IK stuff, I need to learn some more so if anyone has suggestions on, say, hand and arm rigs, I'd be open to them.

I had trouble putting this one down. I highly recommend it for the following:
World building, there is an incredibly rich history to his world that Rothfuss owns so completely as to be able to have not just a single history, but the plurality of tales and folklore that spawn from that history. It is solidly managed and ordered, and an integral part of the story, though not the driving factor (at least not directly.)
Frame Tale, the story is a beautifully crafted frame tale that seems like it might 'catch up' to itself eventually (it's a series and I've only read the first so far.)
Innovative Magic, not only is there more than one system of magic in this novel, but it each is treated as a sort of mystic study. For people interested in technocratic science, it's there, for people interested in mysticism, it's there, for those interested in science as magic, it's there. Again, this all plays into the world build.
Beautiful Story Telling, the arc of the plot is well paced, and though it gets a slow start, the book does what it needs to keep the reader intrigued to turn the pages.
Non-heroic Hero, I love the stories of heroes that are heroic without meaning to be. This is a very wonderfully crafted version of that tale that doesn't make the character out to be an anti-hero, or less than an epic hero, but it does tell his story, as raw and real as it really happened. There are points where the protagonist seems almost super-human, but then is dashed into a human very forcefully to remind you that heroics require sacrifice.
All in all, this is a great read. Looking forward to the next book.
Can you see Sony, Disney, and Fox all sitting around a table with trading cards with all the Marvel characters on them. Disney says to Fox, "okay, we'll green light you Psylocke for Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver." Then Sony pipes up and says, "Look, we'll tip the hat to the MCU if you guys let Spidey get a mention in the canon."
This makes so much sense to me. They are just big kids trading cards.
For reference on where the characters actually reside:
Incidentally I think a few Thomists would like to chat with you about your demystification of essence via holographic illusion. You're tinkering with the boundary between the created and the uncreated, and I'm not sure you mean to.
At any rate, some people would say I think to hard in general. I think I'll have to think about that for awhile.
The government, as a whole, proscribes an intensely irrational scope of behavior e.g. "The Law", and does so with increasing hubris. Are we only slaves once we become "law bound" to board trains for some sort of relocation camp?
Purportedly we are all equally "citizens". There are no other people here. If a citizen has the power to examine my communications, or to kill me, without "legal" repercussion, then am I not a slave? What if these "more equal" citizens can prosecute anyone who spills their secrets, yet they can privately hold themselves trustworthy with your own secrets? Are we still not slaves?
They hold themselves competent to control commerce, to document the movement of money beyond a certain dollar figure, to access anything, anywhere, at any time, and you feel that this is a fair and balanced system?
The NSA is without doubt monitoring every transaction of every bank which the US can touch by any means. Yet, we have zero clues what they do with their own checkbook, and even the people who purportedly represent us are uninformed. What part of this is "silly"?
