Greetings everyone, I was recently inspired to try some "just for fun" fan writing. (By day, I write documents for the government. The plots are terribly dry, and in the end, the State always wins no matter how much of our money it spends.) After two dozen short stories and a few novellas, all in various stages of edit and solicitation, I finally had an idea in somebody ELSE'S universe that I thought was worth trying out, just for the pure enjoyment of writing it and sharing it. It's actually very rare for me, as a writer, to have an idea in someone else's realm... it must be a result of the incredible familiarity and comfort level Eddings' stories lend to his settings. He develops them very well. Usually an existing setting turns the ol' creativity endorphines right off, but not this time. Anyway, for this story, I am postulating that there is a massive emergence of "civilization" in the years "After Eriond" in Belgar-earth. The characters we know so well are not the focus of the new story; instead, I cast a broader net in a somewhat new direction. One of my central theses is that education and infrastructure absolutely take off, since the repetitions are "un-frozen" now. In order to have a setting with developed (and newly-developing) academies, colleges, and universities, I must first figure out what stalwart, storied institutions already exist and have survived all the millennia of the Necessity Wars! (Or didn't survive, in the case of whatever might have been in Mar Amon or Vo Wacune, etc) So far I have found: 1. University of Melcene (obviously) 2. Imperial War College at Tol Honeth (from BtS) 3. Drasnian Intelligence Service Academy (Kotu? Boktor? both?) 4. College of Practical Medicine at Sulturn (from PtS) 5. Dagashi Academy at Araga, Cthol Murgos (from KotM) 6. Women's Academy of Arendia at Lake Erat (from PtS, ostensibly defunct for the time being) 7. Alorn Naval Academy (can't remember which Cherek city it was in, but it seems they mentioned it in either PoP or GotW) 8. Mallorean War Academy (memory is foggy, must read Malloreon again, very sketchy on this one and afraid I might be conflating it with #2.) I also need to know locations, locations, locations. Not every location is going to have a school, but every school needs a location! In addition to the very detailed list in Wikipedia, I have noticed Annath (PtS), Reldegen (QoS), and a lot more of Mallorea proper (DLoK, etc). Remember, things will change. I expect #4 above to develop into Sendaria State University, for example. There's more to it than that, but I'd rather not give away the company just yet. So I guess I'm hoping someone out there will notice an existing school or location that is as-yet unreferenced from the series. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Thanks in advance, folks.
