I鈥檓 in the middle (=start) of my language-learning full reread. I just got the maps. I just customised the maps. can I like _one_ mainstream fandom without the author rushing to ruin it 馃槥馃挗

what is a fantasy series with big, detailed, immersive worldbuilding/lore that鈥檚 not written by a cisgender white man?

Other than Le Guin ofc.

@elilla Ooh, I didn't realize there was going to be a sequel! It read like a stand-alone.

@naga would be a shame to set up all those background hints about goblin society (and a conlang!!!! did I mention conlang) and then just let it go to waste now wouldnt it 馃槍

@elilla Looks like the second book is more of a second story in the same setting--best of both worlds! (no pun)
