    Is this guy supposed to be some futuristic sand warrior? Any kind of search is feeding me his life story with people and planets I've never heard of.

    I would recommend watching at least one of the versions of Dune - there's at least one movie and at least one made for tv mini series. Research is part of CHOW.

    All the best,

    Ohhh! FUN! I remember Stilgar, it's been awhile since I read the books. I remember them being completely covered all the time. But, I'll have to go back and see what wasn't covered in their caves. Or, I'm pretty sure they were stripped nearly naked when fighting for the title. So maybe that?
    Just rambling sorry. Anyone know if I could possibly read the story again online?
