"This is the philosophy of reality; both terrible and wondrous to behold. This is the philosophy of the Sword of Truth, a magical world that resonates deeply in our own. This is not another routine, expectable fantasy novel.

The Sword of Truth is but the means to the end: the meaning of TRUTH."


The Sword of Truth community is dedicated to the fantasy epic written by Terry Goodkind. This is a place for fans and avid readers to discuss, rant, or rave about the series or similar novels. If you've just joined, feel free to introduce yourself and even present your own thoughts or controversial ideas you have about the series!

Rules/Guidelines
1. Please, no off-topic posts. This community is dedicated to discussions of the SOT series and anything having to do with the author, release dates, characters, plot questions, hypotheses, etc. There are many other communities out there for discussing other fantasy books, etc... this is not the place for it. Also, advertisement for other communities is not allowed and will be immediately deleted unless screened through the moderator first.
2. Since the very purpose of this community is to discuss and debate the books, conflicting opinions are expected and will occur. However, RESPECT should be maintained at all times - that means no demeaning or belittling behavior, speech, or posts. Users in violation of this rule will first be given a warning; continuance of the above behavior will ultimately result in being banned.
3. All spoilers need to be put behind an LJ-cut with fair warning given about its content. If you don't know how to use an lj-cut please seek help from LJ FAQ or the moderator.
4. Sword of Truth FANFICTION is not allowed in this community. This is to respect Terry Goodkind's wishes about his characters, worlds, and story NOT being used for fanfiction. Please DO NOT publish SOT fanfiction in this community - it will be automatically deleted and the member will be given a warning. HOWEVER, SOT FANART IS MOST WELCOME AND IS ENCOURAGED BY GOODKIND!


THE WIZARD'S RULES
Wizard's First Rule: People are stupid. They will believe anything that they want to be true or fear to be true.
Wizard's Second Rule: The greatest harm can result from the best intentions.
Wizard's Third Rule: Passion rules reason.
Wizard's Fourth Rule: There is magic in forgiveness - the magic to heal; in the forgiveness you grant, and more so in the magic you recieve.
Wizard's Fifth Rule: Mind what people do, not only what they say, for deeds will betray a lie.
Wizard's Sixth Rule: The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason.
Wizard's Seventh Rule: Life is the future, not the past.
Wizard's Eighth Rule: Deserve victory.
Wizard's Ninth Rule: A contradiction cannot exist in reality.
Wizard's Tenth Rule: Willfully turning aside from the truth is treason to one's self.
