OK, here's how I figure this'll work -- I'll name something from a book or series, and somebody names the author it's related to. Whoever answers, it's your turn to go with one.

It's probably also worth specifying just what it is you're naming, wouldn't want to confuse people by naming a country and having someone think it's a character (:

Here goes...I'll start with an easy one.
Place: Osten Ard.

Come on guys, is it really that complicated a game?

Once you've answered a question, it's your turn, Asha'man, to ask the next one!

Maybe he's not sure if he's right, and he's waiting for confirmation before he posts! Or maybe he doesn't want to play, but wants to shame us with his superior intellect.

OK, I have to admit you guys're stumping me with some of these, too. Like that Prince Roger guy...I don't think I'm familiar with him. Unless he's the one that'd be from Fred Saberhagen as the author. But I believe not.
