Age of Legends, LLC to Hold an International Wake for Robert Jordan-- UPDATE

Guest Matalina


On September 16th, 2007 best selling fantasy author Robert Jordan passed away. Jordan struggled for several years with cardiac amylodosis, a rare blood disease that affects eight out of one million people. He will be missed by millions of fans around the world.


In honor of his remarkable achievements and the significant impact he had on his fans, Age of Legends is sponsoring an International Wake. The wake will take place on or around Oct. 17th, 2007, which would have been his fifty ninth birthday.

If you don’t see a wake listed for your area, please don’t hesitate to start one. This isn’t much more complicated than throwing a large birthday party. Simply find a place to gather, such as a bookstore, public park, or restaurant. Some of these will require reservations to use. Pick a date. We’re trying to time these to be or around Jordan’s birthday, which is Oct. 17th. But any time this month is fine.


Decide on what people will do. Will they toast? Share testimonials? Sign a condolence card? Make sure you collect any needed supplies, or delegate someone to do this. Get name tags if you think you’ll have lots of new faces.


Once you know all those details, please email me or post them on the forums at AgeofLegends.net. The sooner you can nail these down, the better! We’re a week away from our first events!
