When I proposed the idea of a “concept” discussion I was thinking about looking at themes or questions such as:

The problems of pregnancy while bearing a demon. This would include a sidestep into HH as Halena is the only example we have.

How much is Desdemona different from other demons? Is it possible that she has a soul? (This is one I’d like to emend/rant on.)

There is evidence of a least some technological advancement in the 5GU. What breakthroughs are likely? What may be hindered by the nature of the 5GU? (Will Penric’s invention of page at a time metal plates retard typesetting?

Things/questions like these would have to draw from the series as a whole rather than a single book.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

Lead on. I'm not sure what a "concept" discussion is.
I'm assuming a "timeline" discussion is just a summary recounting the best parts?
Read and ready for discussion.
