Mat: He (Galgan) won't play cards with me first. I was hoping I could win him over. Lose on purpose a few times. Min: I don't think you could manage that. Mat: Actually, I figured out how to bloody lose ages ago. Narrator Min: He seemed to be completely serious. submitted by /u/seldonsplans [link] [comments]

Im sure youve seen tons of posts like this on this sub before, but I'm just so excited. I have read excerpts and I've read nearly every book by Brandon Sanderson so I wanted to read this next. Epic Fantasy is easily my favorite genre, having read Malazan, GoT, Stormlight, and others, it's hard to ignore one of the best known, longest fantasy series out there. 14 books. It will be the longest series (book number wise) that I'll have ever read. It'll probably take me 6 or 7...

I just finished the series for the first time. I loved it! It was the best series I’ve ever read. Now that I have nothing to do I’m looking for a new series to start. I was thinking about starting the Kingkiller chronicle, but was wondering if any of you had any suggestions. submitted by /u/wadenater123 [link] [comments]

I'm finally at A Memory of Light. Are there any bgm/songs you listen to while reading WoT? Part of the reason I enjoyed this series so much is because of the music I listened to while reading. The first half of the series I listened to purely LoTR, like The Lighting of the Beacons and The White Tree, and any time in Tel'aran'rhiod I listened to this https://youtu.be/krD_CtRnipk Then I went through all the classic anime OSTs. I listened to them where I felt a certain theme would be...

I'm thinking of proposing to my boyfriend this summer, and he is crazy about WoT. I haven't ever read it, though. I would like to get him the official Great Serpent ring, because he's so passionate about the series. But I see on the website that this ring is awarded to women. He is a stickler for detail... What do you think, is it a thoughtful gesture or absolutely the wrong ring because it doesn't fit with the lore? Additional thoughts: Link to the product:...

After bonding Birgitte, Elayne thinks that she MUST choose the Green Ajah because it's the only one that allows bonding more than one Warder (nd she wants to bond. Rand). I don't feel it makes any sense. She was still an Accepted when she bonded Birgitte. She broke two rules with that, why would she care so much about breaking another? Also, she wants to bond the Dragon Reborn not any random guy. Why would the normal rules apply to her situation? I would wager even the Red Ajah would...

These books are dangerous, I started the great hunt like two weeks ago and I read the last 400 pages in 3 days. How much time has everyone burned through reading the series? How many rereads do you guys have? submitted by /u/mjsully2002 [link] [comments]

I just got done reading part of one of the battles with Lan and he says that he had Nynaeve's letter against his chest under his coat. I don't remember this being mentioned before? When did she give him a letter? submitted by /u/mksedai [link] [comments]

Hey guys, I need some help figuring out what some of the shadowspawn would be like in 5e. So far I have trollocs, drakahar, myrdraahl and greymen. What are some other non human monster creatures stats like? submitted by /u/CamperCombo [link] [comments]

So I'm on the towers of midnight and should finish the series in the next 3 or 4 weeks. It isnt my first read through I've read it a few times before but not for the past 5 years. I'm planning a re-read soon. Even though I've read it before, the long gap between this time and the previous time means I'm discovering a lot of things again so I think a another go in a few months would be good. I was just wondering how often do you guys re-read? How long would you recommend I...

I finished reading the first book a couple of days ago and I still don't quite understand what happened. What was that "glowing rope"? From what I could gather after doing some research, the rope was coming from the Eye of the World, but I'm not sure how and why. Is this the way male Aes Sedai can take the "power" from it (meaning Aginor was an Aes Sedai)? First he was taking it alone and getting stronger by doing so, but when he realized the rope also connected to...

With how often people (especially nobles) faint or get weak/shaky at the slightest things do you think a large portion of people have anaemia in Randland? submitted by /u/ExpertOdin [link] [comments]

In the prologue of the first chapter: "For a moment he fingered the symbol on his cloak, a circle half white and half black, the colors separated by a sinuous line." This is what is presented in the chapter icons. The Image presented in the chapter icons is not 1/2 white and 1/2 black. Further, it has a sinuously line separating black and white but its inverted, facing the wrong way. This is what I think it should look like This is possibly a hint to what it should...

To do this properly, we need to get a idea of the population of Randland. Per the wiki at TarValon.net about 1 percent of the population can be taught to channel, with a smaller percentage having the ability inborn. How small that percentage is an unknown so we'll wave our hands and pretend this doesn't matter. From the text, we know that the Kin had 1,783 members and that the Tower held a little less than 1,000. Thus, Randland had about 2,700 female channelers. We'll round this to...

And damn it's crazy that I'm finished with such an incredible series. It was an insane journey but worth every second. I've been reading nonstop for the last many weeks and I don't know how I'm even going to fill my time anymore without this series. If the word count I found online is right, then I read the series at an average pace of about 1 word per second over the last 51 days. 4.4 million words and it's over just like that. Truly can't wait until I've...

It had been years since I first read the series so much of the minor content has long been forgotten. I am reading MoL right now and just got done reading a scene that I found myself literally laughing out loud to. It was the scene where Mat was getting dressed by the Seachan tailor and da'covale. The whole thing was just comic gold. The imagery of him wearing that ridiculous outfit, then him pondering about what his life is going to be now as he gets his nails done... and then the hat. I...

Took multiple hiatuses throughout the series and often times started from the beginning again, but I'm done! Crossroads of Twilight took me about 8 years and roughly 12 attempts to get through the prologue. Once I got through the prologue, I was determined to get through it and move on. To this day, I believe it is the worst book that I had ever read. That being said, I loved the series, can't believe how much thought and detail went into the world Jordan crafted. Already going back to ...

PLEASE NO SPOILERS PAST THE GREAT HUNT Hi all, I am on the last few chapters of TGH and have a memory of a Bayle Domon chapter where he is approached by someone who pressures him into moving either cargo or a secret passenger on his ship. Am I supposed to have worked out who/what this was? Or is it not revealed yet? Have I made this up (haha)? submitted by /u/mattrubik [link] [comments]

Just a preface: I’m on a re-read right now and have actually never finished the books. I’ve read the first eight books a good 5-7 times each. I have read the 9th and 10th three times each. I have not read this series in years. Luckily for me, the first seven books were out when I started at 16 in highschool (I’m 35 now) so I could just pile through them. Unfortunately, then became ten years of the slog, some of the most boring fantasy I have willingly read. Robert Jordan died and I lost...
