Looking For A Fantasy Novel

    Looking For A Fantasy Novel....

    A while back someone told me about a fantasy novel that he was reading and I can't remember the name of it for the life of me.
    These are the things about the story that I remember him refering to. It seemed that it was about a ragtag group of people on some sort of quest(pretty generic there I know). If I remember correctly they were traveling between different worlds or dimensions. In one of these worlds in particular there were certain rules inforced by reality. All swords had to be named. All females must be scantily clad at all times. Ummm I think those are the only rules I can remember.
    The main character I believe was a kid and he found himself in the body of a barbarian. Another was a nymph or elf of somesort that kept changing bodies and was a nymphomaniac or needed to have sex to survive or some such thing.
    Meh... It's been so long I barely remember anything about it.
    Anyone have any idea based on this much though?

    Lol... I actually just skimmed your review of it in the Book Review thread a little while ago. I'll have to make sure to look into that one. Never read any Stephen King before.

    I was looking for a specific series and I'm pretty sure that Bystander found it.

    My first Stephen King books were the Dark Tower series, and now he's my favorite author. :biggrin:

    Chalker does take a couple friendly shots at King toward the end of the series --- King could have made up the "rules for trilogies" and Chalker borrowed them.
