Here's some of mine:

The Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson. The word EPIC is too small for this series.

    Raistlin rules man, he's changes sides more times than anyone can count and he finally choose good over his own side in the end. Best character ever except mabye Erik Red.

    Loved the Dragonlance stuff. Just introduced it to my son a little while ago and he loved it too.

    If you liked the Black Company, you should def. give Steven Erikson a try.

    I totally understand the poor part. No fun. Maybe see if there's a used book store around. I've found most of my collection there. I get paperbacks for $3 or less, and hardbacks for half price. I always save my pennies for Erikson. Totally worth the cost. Have fun.

    I liked the Dragonlance series. I couldn't get into anything that didn't include Raistlin though.

    But the best series I have read in a while was the Obsidian Trilogy. Starts off a little slow, but about 100 pages into it, you will find yourself plowing through 2000 pages in a couple weeks, just to see what happens next. The villains of this series are some demented creatures and they do a good job of making you really understand just how dark they are. The 4 main characters have great character development, which is something many books are missing these days. It also has dragons, goblins, elves, magic, large battles, and plenty of detailed fights.

    I must say you guys have forgotten another great series. The Sword of Truth series. Not the crap TV series they have. The twelve books are way better and worth every dime you spend on them. For those who are interested the series starts with wizard's first rule

    Is that the one by Mercedes Lackey? I've got it on my "to read" list. I may bump it up now and get to it sooner.

    Thanks.

    Yeh, Mercedes Lackey and someone else. I started the next trilogy (The Phoenix something), that takes place 1,000 years later, and it sucks. But the original trilogy was amazing.

    I'm so tempted to read it again, even though I've got more books on my "to read" list than I can finish in this lifetime.

    Wizards first rule may have been the most well put together book I've ever read. It's so good but i just don't have the time to read the series.

    Coolest series I have read? Magic: The Gathering books. A-fircken-mazing.

    Magic banned by large city-state? Used in self defense and guards saw? Say you threw coals from your fire. Seems legit.
