(No spoilers) There are thousands of posts below which bring out early mentions of book-written suggestions that come to light later. I really want the show to be able to keep faith with the remarkable foretelling and pre-knowledge - I truly feel that it would be a shame if WOT became a soap-opera in the way GOT did. Any thoughts? submitted by /u/Jaguarette [link] [comments]

In chapter 41, A Threat, Min's clothing is described as pale rose. However a few pages on Rand describes it as pale red. Since colourblindness is more common in men (it's a sex-linked trait), we can assume Min is viewing it correctly and Rand incorrectly. submitted by /u/billnyetheanimalguy [link] [comments]

With the books finally coming to the screen, we'll have real meme templates like we've had with LOTR and GOT. There are some really memeworthy moments especially with Nynaeve and Mat. submitted by /u/sunnyb66 [link] [comments]

Ok, I've seen a lot of posts/comments about how these things are going to be handled. I felt like I could add some useful input to the discourse. The One Power and its visual representation: yes, its incredibly important to the series. Yes, it will need to look good. I see a lot of comparisons to GoT and their budget and CGI and etc etc. But I want to point out: there is a massive difference in both resources and costs between animating a fully realized and convincing direwolf/dragon, and...

So, quite a few NC and surrounding people showed up in the thread about the Heron Mark tattoo parlor. I semi-jokingly suggested a meetup, and well damn if people didn't respond. I'll be away from the internet for the most of this weekend, but if everyone that's interested in having a get together in the near future would post here, then by the light I will set about organizing it. submitted by /u/eccehobo1 [link] [comments]

I imagine a 10 minute cold open...first five minutes in Seanchen, where we follow Tuon into the throne room where the Empress declares that the omens have spoken to the Last Battle approaching, and that Tuon must ready the "Return" to conquer the Old World...the next 5 minutes are in Tar Valon, where Siuan is talking to Moiraine about new clues to the Dragon reborn's whereabouts. She blesses Moiraine travelling to "This Two Rivers in the heart of once was Manetheren",...

Today I was listening to my book and it was an Egwene chapter. So Egwene says some line like "Rand has a good head on his shoulders, for a man, and...". That was the line. It was so quickly said and glossed over but it was there. It brought a thought to me I didn't have till just now: I've read this book series for the past year and there are thoughts about men from several characters that you may think borders on feminism. There is a lot of condescending tones from the women...

[Spoilers All] I am on my fourth re-read of the series, second on re-listen. Currently, I’m on book ten - Crossroads of Twilight - and I had a thought that I may be ashamed to say should already have occurred to me. Then again, perhaps not. I’d like your thoughts. In Chapter 30 (What The Oath Rod Can Do), Egwene is embattled with the commanding sitters Lelaine and Romanda regarding the ethics of bonding Asha’man. Under immense stress, Egwene uses the oft-recurring “novice exercise” known as...

Interested in hearing your thoughts on quotes that perfectly encapsulates a character. These could be either something they say themselves, or something another character says about them. These are some that I really like Mat “I’m no hero. I do what I have to do, but I am no hero.” Padan Fain "Padan Fain was the Dark One’s creature to the depths of his soul, but I believe that in Shadar Logoth he fell afoul of Mordeth, who was as vile in fighting the Shadow as ever the Shadow itself...

Lan turned his cup between two fingers, thinking of Deepe again. He found he couldn’t drum up anger at the man. Deepe had wanted to kill one of the Shadow’s most dangerous channelers. Lan couldn’t say he would turn down a similar opportunity, if it were given him. submitted by /u/sunnyb66 [link] [comments]

Honestly I don't really care who he is reborn as (I know it's still up for debate), but rather why did the Wheel spin him back out so close to Tarmon Gai'don? Too young to have any impact in the unfolding events and not bound to Tel'aran'rhiod to be summoned by the Horn of Valere, unless I'm missing something important? submitted by /u/Quria [link] [comments]

WOT obviously has thousands and thousands of characters, and there's the odd one that stands out even though they only appeared in one scene. For example, Mahiro Shukosa, the Warder Min befriends in LoC, basically described as a Renaissance man who enjoys the arts and intellectual pursuits. What one-scene wonder do you wish you saw more of? submitted by /u/MozzarellaFitzgerald [link] [comments]

I don't like the original covers. I'd like to buy a different version than the originals. I like the ebook covers but they seem to be just that, ebook covers. I'd prefer hardback but paperback is fine too if hardback isn't available. submitted by /u/Hurinfan [link] [comments]

I just finished the prologue to Towers of Midnight and the final POV at the Kandori tower really got me. The tower commander knows they will be overrun and is glad his son may be able to escape. But his son let another boy go knowing that boy will be quicker and boy's family history. I loved the giving of the sword ceremony as well. The Borderlanders are really inspiring with their sense of duty and honor in the face of certain defeat. Just very well done and emotional scene that I...

Hi all!! So I've read all 14 of the main books in the series and have decided to reread them all. I love the series, and partially through TGH I've really enjoyed the second read through. I haven't read New Spring yet, so my question is: should I read it? And if so, when should I read it? I've heard people say after book 10, but I've already read through once. Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? submitted by /u/mikeboat91 [link] [comments]

Let me start off with the things I liked. The whole thing with Perrin I found actually very nice. I might be biased because Perrin is my favourite character but still I found his whole arc this book to be quite good. His interactions with Morgase, Basel Gill, Lini etc were pretty fun. I also found the prologue of this book to be amazing. I got very hyped for the rest of the book by the prologue and I thought it played a part in me not enjoying it as much as the previous books. I also found the...

I am currently reading book 2, the Great Hunt, and at the portion where Nynaeve is going through acceptance rituals. Nynaeve constantly seems to say throught the book till now, "I have to make Moiraine pay". Why is that, what grievance does she have against Moiraine? Why does she think that Moiraine is the one who brought trouble to the Emmond's Field folks? And does this thing last long, I am already getting irritated by it Sorry for potentially reposting if this has been asked...

Literally every second post is about 'do not worry, we have the whole story written down!', but in reality this is not true. Jordan left WOT unfinished, and that's a stubborn fact. The fan fictions written by Sanderson have nothing to do with Jordan, WOT, because, they are fan fictions, nothing more. So basically there is zero difference between GOT and WOT. submitted by /u/gefarra [link] [comments]

Forging. I want the forging scenes with Perrin to show him forging, not casting, a weapon. Forging scenes in movies and shows have shown them casting weapons and claiming it is forging for far too long. Let WoT change that please submitted by /u/Scepta101 [link] [comments]

I'm really curious about them. I think GOT is the best example for this. Opening credits and theme song is wonderful. And they play huge role for GOT's success. What about WOT? The producers must be picky and finicking for them. I hope they will do it well. submitted by /u/goergingo [link] [comments]
