Its clear humanity and the finns have been in conflict but considering the age of legends was peaceful and the current age has no mention of a war or conflict with them when did this happen? I would imagine if it was after the end of the AOL a war with two different alien races would be noteworthy enough to be commented on. Its clear humans and finns have a peace treaty yet no mention of them exists interacting with people during the AOL. Their entire existence in the story is extremely...

My dudes that was pretty heckin amazing. I'd like to start by saying that I haven't felt the "slump" at all so far. I've enjoyed the last couple of books immensely. I'm about to start CoT and I know of it's reputation but it seems that maybe the slump was only really perceived back when people were reading the series as it was published. Moving on, the end of the book was incredible and I've been looking forward to it for a long time. I just wish it fleshed out ...

"The Guardians are newer, but the city was here long ago. Aren Deshar, Aren Mador, Far Madding. Always a thorn in our side, Aren Deshar was. The enclave of the Incastar-those afraid of progress, afraid of wonder. Turns out they had a right to be afraid. How I wish I had listened to Gilgame . . ." Towers of Midnight, A Testing Now according to the encyclopedia it was an AoL city http://www.encyclopaedia-wot.org/history/aol/aren_deshar.html Which I suppose makes sense, albeit with some ...

So, I remember there being a dude who invented the steam engine, and something about rand making a college (or something like that). If anyone can tell me anything about that (the dude's name, what the college's name is, where the college was founded, the book they talked about this in) that would be great. I'm making a D&D campaign that takes place 15ish years after Tarmon Gai'don. I want to get an idea as to where they would be technologically. If you have any other things ...

When I was in eighth grade, my English class went to the library to pick something out for our quarterly book reports. I had already become an a pretty avid reader at that point. My brother is eight years older than I am and I grew up around his interests in things like Dungeons and Dragons, Ultima, and other fantasy mainstays of the time. I had in fact just finished the first three Dragonlance books the week before. I had decided by that point that fantasy was my thing. I was excited when I...

In a post over in r/masseffect, someone discussed his dismay over the Garfield/Mass Effect crossover he had found. Naturally, this lead to me trying to find weirder crossovers (and I found several), but that isn't the point of this post. The bizarre little factoid I found is that there are 4 times as many fanfics written about the Bible then there are about Wheel of Time, and about 3 times as many crossover fics. I... just... WHEEL OF TIME HAS ACTUAL ALTERNATE UNIVERSES IN CANON! That's ...

Backstory: Brandon Sanderson is a long lost author I recently refound and obsessivly read all his books. I wanted to read his books before taking on this giant project that is The Wheel of Time, since Brandon finished the series I'm halfway through the 2nd book, and Im not really 'into' the story like I'd hoped. In my mind, the first book was about them getting to a place then an abrupt fight scene to end the book, and I'm not really sure of the point/plot of the 2nd book...

I did until five minutes ago, for some reason, I wanted to google her name. Not only I pictured her Asian, for the most time, I imagined her in this white face paint with some dots and decorations and riddiculously over the top outfits similar to Chinese Opera performers. She was an extremely decorated -think immaculate wigs, fantastic kimono like robes, dangling bits of ornaments- Asian empress in my imagination. Some more: I pictured northmen, especially Malkieri, feudal Japanese but Lan was ...

Those were the most skin-crawlingly, deeply uncomfortable chapters I've read in a quite a while. Not because of Mat being locked in his own room and raped at knifepoint. I'm fine with reading rape scenes. But it felt like it was trying to be comedy. That somehow made it infinitely more uncomfortable. submitted by /u/diffyqgirl [link] [comments]

My sister has been tearing through the series recently (she's just started book 5 and has only been reading for a month and a half) and she's moving away soon, so I want to draw little charms of most of the main cast for her as a going away present. Specifically the characters I want to draw are: Rand, Perrin, Matt, Lan, Nynaeve, Elayne, and Egwene. If I have time I was going to also draw Moiraine and Loial. I'm probably missing a bunch of people but those are the ones she talks...
