Michael Kuehn Hello fellow FAMILIAR fans. Having just received my copy of Volume 3, and begun reading, I realize that I have little memory of how Volume 2 ended. Since these volumes arrive after many months gap, how is everyone keeping up with the multitude of plotlines? I feel like I should go back and reread the last half of 2. At the very least, I think I will go back, page through V2, and compose a chapter or plotline summary. Has anyone else tried this?


Daniel Williams | 1 comments I also had some issues with remebering. But I found this wiki.

Michael Kuehn Thanks, Daniel, that looks to be a great resource. Here is another I found, though not as well organized:

Ian Scuffling (ianscuffling) | 96 comments With my read of V3, I summarized each chapter while I was reading it to not only really implant the book in my brain, but also to reference back from time to time where certain characters left off. I'm sure it will be useful for when V4 comes out (in February...). I'll try to transcribe the notes into the wikia (linked above, run by someone else) or here (or both) as I have time.

Michael Kuehn Yes, a wise thing to do. I went back long after I'd finished V2 and did the same, since now that I'm starting V3 I found myself a bit lost, unable to recall all the plotlines and characters. I'll definitely take notes as I go through V3.
