Hey, I think you might remember me, I asked a question about the witcher about a month ago. I need some more help now. I am reading the fifth book where Yennefer takes Geralt to the meeting of mages. Geralt meets Djikstra and Vilgefortz. Wasnt Djikstra supposed to capture Geralt of something ? I mean they pretty much act like nothing happened at the meeting. Also Vilgefortz was trying to get Geralt killed, he could of do it at the meeting somehow no ? Maybe using a poison or something. The last thing I dont understand is, how do they know that Ciri is alive ? Wasnt Codringher supposed to spread a rumouor shes dead ?
Ok, I think it is the fourth book that you are talking about, "Times of Contempt" if I am not mistaken? The fifth book is "Baptism of Fire", but if you counted from "Seasons of Storms", than I suppose it is the fifth. For the future reference:
0.Seasons of Storms(prequel)
1.The Last Wish
2.Sword of Destiny
3.Blood of Elves
4.Times of Contempt
5.Baptism of Fire
6.The Swallow's Tower
7. The Lady of the Lake
..and the games w2 and w3. ;)
Now about the events of the Thanned island and the meeting of the mages, what you need to understand is- that in the "dark fantasy genre" all of that is just a fancy game of thrones and a power struggle. I recommend reading "Game of Thrones" after these(or watching). Of course they are keeping the illusion of peace at the meeting and act like nothing happened, for they have a hidden agenda. Keep reading :D. Yes, Codringher is supposed to spread the rumour that she was dead, but he changed his mind after a controversial information about her. Keep reading and you'll find out, the rest would be a huge spoiler. They are all supposing that Ciri is alive, only one that knows for sure is Codringher since Geralt told him before.
Are you reading in Czech or in English :P? A lot has been lost in the English translation...so it's better to read in other languages. The new English translations are coming up.
Oh lol you did play the games, I didnt see your answer to my last post. Cool, is it really important to read the books before Witcher 1, or can I just read the books, and jump straight to the Witcher 3 ? :D
The editing he is reffering to is perhaps create pages or check him on his spelling, or monitor the pages to make sure no one is trolling? Pretty much what I do. He is a major editor of the wikia/Admin of the wikia. I am the owner of this wikia.
Editing is very easy, you just look at the page and if you notice something, click edit to re-do it. If someone edits a bunch of trolling things (On purposely changes words, adds profanity, etc.) then you click history, compare history, then click undo, and then itll say a couple things and you just agree on them, theyre mainly about me checking your undo to know if youre trolling or not. Simple things. Just do what you can do and then you'll get even better and better. And then after awhile youll start learning code and then you in the big leagues.
