Review:
I was trying to come up with words to the "horrible wizard" song but could not. I applaud what you did with it.

Review:
Just a note to let you know that I laughed and chuckled most of the way through this chapter and a lot of the previous stories. Very good story telling.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from DenSorteEngel
Review:
This story continue to amaze me! It was the very first fan-written story that I read (well, T.A. book 1 was) a few years ago, and it opened up for a lot of hours of joyous reading from the first chapter onward :) This is the second time I've read it, and it is still my favorite ;) Sadly the second read-through was a lot faster than my first, due to a fast-growing understanding of the English language, which is pretty much the only negative thing about it, because the story ended that much sooner :o
I am looking very much forward to reading the rest of the story when more chapters come out :) Keep up the good work! :)

Thank you! Sorry it took so long to reply, I was busy preparing to go to WriterConUK - which is where I am now. I'll get back to writing after the convention.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Those elves really aren't genre savvy. Turning someone mortal in no way removes them from affecting you if you're also bound to the physical plane...

Wrote up a trope page. Hope it reads well. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanFic/TheTabulaAvatarUniverse

Definitely hoping to attract editors to the page and readers to your stories :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! The Trope page is very cool. I had heard that TV Tropes had gone out of business; obviously my source was incorrect. And now I really must get on with the stories - I've been distracted by the World Cup. I'm at 5,400 words on the next chapter of 'The King of Elfland's Daughter', with only two scenes to go, but I haven't touched it in over a week because I've been a) watching the football and b) distracted by a one-off Stargate non-crossover short story which suddenly popped into my mind. That story is almost finished and I promise I'll get straight back to TKOED and then to TA and (at last) APOS.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from BobFromAccounting
Review:
I have enjoyed this series from the first moment I saw it. Your characterization is amazing. How the different characters interact is interesting and well done. I am a Huge Baldur's Gate fan. It was my first rpg and my introduction to dnd. I plan on making another run through Baldur's Gate 2 after I but the new edition on Steam. As to that I was wondering if you had written down anywhere the Stats of the Buffy characters from beginning to present. I would like to see there stats and do a play through with them. Thank you for the many hours of entertainment. Keep up the good work and keep typing.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Actually I don't have the stats any longer; I did have them but I had a couple of reviews elsewhere in which a few people complained that I was making the characters conform too rigidly to the game mechanics and I made a decision to discard the stats as a reminder to keep things more free-form. I do remember that Buffy has 22 Strength, 20 Dexterity, and 20 Constitution, Spike had 20 STR and 19 DEX, and Xander has 17 STR, 18 CON, and 18 CHA. Sorkatani was created in BG1, re-rolled multiple times until she ended up with 18.99 STR, 18 DEX, 18 CON, and nothing else below 14; then she read all the Manuals available in BG1 (except the Wisdom one, which went to Jaheira) and entered BG2 with 19 STR (which I later upped to 20 with Shadowkeeper to simulate her Slayer status), 19 DEX, and 19 CON. That's as close as I can get. Unfortunately Shadowkeeper doesn't work with the BG2 Enhanced Edition - it just corrupts any saves irreparably - and there is no equivalent Enhanced Edition editor available yet. The Console cheats don't seem to work either. So the scope for modifying the characters to conform with the Tabula Avatar characters no longer exists.

PS sorry I never replied to your PM making the same request; I was on my last night of a 5-night shift at that time and I put it aside to reply later in my days off when I wasn't so tired. However I then got caught up in writing the latest chapter of 'The King of Elfland's Daughter' and completely forgot about your PM until now.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from dawnkey
Review:
This series you have written is in my opinion the best I have ever read. I just want to know are you going to write Tabula Avatar Book 4 and 5 and maybe 6 to show what happens in between the end of the game and the beginning of Neverwintler nights to the gang and also story's for the expansions of Neverwintler nights 1 and 2 like you have for A Plague of Serpents as you have from what I have read have the talent for it as I have started to play the d and d computer game because your fic's of this series got me interested in them so thank you for that and I hope you will have a lot joy writing the fic's for this series in the years to come as you have brought joy for all those reading them.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much! The gap between TA Book 3 and 'Debt of Blood' will be filled by 2 stories. 'Tabula Avatar Book 4: Throne of Buffy', following the Throne of Bhaal storyline but with some significant differences, and 'Stairway To Heaven', in which Anya persuades the gang to set out to rescue the goddess Waukeen from captivity in the realm of the demon lord Graz’zt - and things go terribly wrong. And the NWN2 expansion 'Mask of the Betrayer' will be dealt with in the final story of the series, 'Welcome to the Black Parade', in which Shar puts all her resources (including Buffy and the Scoobies) behind the Betrayer's Crusade in an attempt to rescue the lost souls from the Wall of the Faithless.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Morgomir
Review:
Great chapter, hope your health is improving. Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Unfortunately I've twisted something in my back last week and it aches if I sit for long; this is slowing down my writing more than somewhat. This winter hasn't been the best of times for me.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Senko
Review:
Shame about the hospital, good to know your feeling better. For some reason I have problems reading your work just realized tonight I've on average only read half of the last four chapters (usually the first half of them) because something always interupts me. Went back and am now all caught up again. However its raised the question if the elven pantheon has managed in one stroke to anger both the goddess of magic and shadow magic (dangerous midnight) I wonder how they'd take it if every single elven mage and magic that isn't vital for supporting someones life just plain stopped working? Or for that matter if followers of Selune could only use divine magic not arcane? Hmmmmm and Ellistre is right Selune's actions is going wind up costing her ALOT of divine allies both directly and indirectly with the ones who aren't willing to work with the ones who don't have a problem with her actions.

Well I'll be looking forward to seeing all your stories continued, or technically all your different time periods grin. Hope you continue in good health.
Comments from author:
No comment, at this stage about the conflict between Sehanine/Selûne and Shar's (growing) group of friends and allies (who will eventually develop into The Bridesmaids) - except to say that Selûne will find her own allies.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Smart way to remove a sleeping dragon :) I wonder how that broke down in xp terms...

Nice song by Giles. Good to see Jarlaxe putting his skills to use.

Sweet. Bypass the individual quests, then have many of the members the team has earned over the course of the story double-back and handle them while the core group takes out the Big Bad. Definitely smooth planning and one of the perks brought on by spreading realness through the system :D
Comments from author:
Anya will have got the biggest share of the xp; the core idea was hers.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Gladius
Review:
Welcome back, glad you're feeling better.

I love this series, and am very happy to see it continue.

And thanks for proving, once again, that Sir Issacc Newton is still the deadliest son of a bitch in the multiverse ... :D

Again, thanks. I cheered when I saw an update.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Marcel
Review:
I am very sorry to hear about your health problems; I hope everything is back to normal. I can't help being very happy for the update though - this was an amazing series so far and I've enjoyed re-reading it several times. I liked the "oh well, it's another dragon" attitude of the gang :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! Yes, everything seems to be back to normal; my wife (a senior nurse) won't allow me to lift anything heavy but typing isn't a problem.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Macfeste
Review:
So very happy to see this updated. It's like catching a leprechaun riding a unicorn under a double rainbow. I just noticed that I've been reading this series for 8 years. I've re-read it countless times. I've dreamed I was adventuring with the characters. I've played and replayed BGII on many different computers.

I've read a lot of fanfiction before and since you started this journey but this story will always be my favorite, and you my favorite author.

Thanks for creating something that's been (and will continue to be) a big part of my life.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much for this lovely review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Sweet. I love how they're able to mix and match the weapon enchantments. Appropriate weapon for Sharwyn, plus one should not raise too many eyebrows. Good to see Buffy dating an appropriately leveled character. Heh, interesting hints about Jaheira.

Eh, I liked seeing Egeria grow over time, feels as if you merged several steps that may have been more satisfying spread out. Hmm, leaves open the question of what Shar's avatar said to Talona. Is it part of one of the 'Moon' sequels?
Comments from author:
Thank you!

Egeria still has a lot of growth to go through before she reaches the stage she's at in 'Debt of Blood'.

What Shar said to Talona will crop up in 'A Plague of Serpents' and the forthcoming 'Welcome to the Black Parade'.

I'm running way behind with my writing because I had to go into hospital for an emergency operation in December and, though I was only in for 3 days, I didn't feel up to writing for quite a while after I came out. Then I got a new computer a couple of weeks ago and setting it up has taken ages. But I'm writing again now; I'm 4,417 words into the next 'Tabula Avatar' chapter so it shouldn't be too long.
