Last week, I saw Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, a television adaptation of the book of the same name. Now, I have never been a Pratchett fan. I have never read any of his books, only bits from here and there. Enough to know that Death SPEAKS WITH CAPSLOCK ON, though.
Last Friday, I read the last part of The Empyrean Odyssey trilogy. Trilogy, which I like to call the getting-Forgotten-Realms-from-the-3rd-to-the-4th-edition-of-D&D trilogy, and which means that gods will die. The Empyrean Odyssey isn't the only recent FR trilogy to include gods dying, though. The Lady Penitent has also deities falling but those novels focus on eliminating the drow pantheon, until only Lolth is left. The Empyrean Odyssey's story reveals the events of the main pantheon instead, yet is still bit too vague to be actually called the main story - The Forgotten Realms never had one.

It all started in The Burning Crusade from a normal daily heroic run in Sethekk Halls, including the summoning of Anzu, the optional bird boss from the druid epic flight form quest line. When slain, Anzu has a ~1% chance to drop Reins of the Raven Lord, which is basicly himself as a rideable mount. Well, the mount decides to drop and everyone in the party rolls for need, and I, of course, roll highest.

I heard about James Cameron's Avatar for the first time last summer. It was mentioned in Empire as one of the upcoming movies, and if I recall correctly, that was pretty much everything it said. But only the title was enough to make me type it in my cell in the list of movies that I should watch.
