Possibly a stupid question. What happened to Prince Zhan Ahrmahk and Princess Zhanayt Ahrmahk.

I know Zhan married Mahrya Bates, but is that the last we hear of him? Or did I miss something?

And aside from a passing mention that she was looking interestingly at young princes, I can't recall any mention of Zhanayt since Zhan was betrothed.

Thanks

They get a mention in TFT. Both are around and apparently doing well.

Rules, even dumb rules, are still rules. So yeah we shouldn't break them.

That said, I really don't understand how someone would
A) be a big enough fan to be spending time on the forums
B) NOT have already read the book.

Note I did not say BUY the book. That's easy and obvious. But there are libraries. B&N or other bookstores will still -- usually -- let you sit and read the book. There are other ways. So I really don't understand why anyone would not have read the book by now AND be on the forums. Seems it should be a both-or-neither proposition.

Interesting - I'd always assumed it was from the first real book being published. I've just looked up the forum rules and this is what Duckk says..

Snerks/Spoilers
- Snerks/snerking is revealing contents of upcoming books before it is released. Spoilers is revealing contents of books which have been released.

- For specific content on a book that has yet to be released, or for a book that has been released in paper format (either hardcover or softcover, whichever is first) for less than a month, all discussion topics shall have in the topic title "SPOILERS" somewhere in it. I'm not expecting people to figure out exactly when a month is up, but just keep it in mind before you can drop the SPOILER warning. By specific content I am including the snippets Eric Flint provides on his website (and is usually crossposted to the Bar and here).

- Any speculative topics and and topics concerning books that have been out for more than 1 month will not be required to have anything in their topic titles.

- Unmarked spoilers can be reported to the moderator for remedial action.


I've boldened the relevant bit and it looks like a month after first dead tree version being released is the limit for spoiler alerts.

Hmm... perhaps we're getting the Weber forum rules mixed up with the Baen's Bar rules? I know there was *somewhere* that you had to wait for the softcover version to come out... but doesn't looks like it is here (at least anymore?)...

Yeah, my bad. I was using the old Baen rules.
Shoot, now I can really participate in some of the discussions because I thought they were still under gag orders.

Cool!
