  1. Past hour
  2. I wholeheartedly agree. The book series had those things, but it wasn't in your face. There was gratuitous nudity at times, but I can't recall gratuitous sex. There was blood and death and battles, but I don't recall gratuitous gore. The gender thing was done tactfully and not in your face. If they are that integrated, and those relationships are that normal, would "pride" still be a thing? I don't think so. Personally, I don't care for them to "update" the series. I like the series as it is. But, I understand moving it forward for current audiences. However, they should realize that all these ultra woke shows and movies are getting trashed at the box office and in views. If you want to make an ultra woke show, that is fine. But that is not WOT, and I won't be watching
  3. Today
  4. I agree with many of the comments on this thread. Since the diversity lgbtqia...craze is a relatively recent thing, I am sure there are plenty of YA fiction books blasting this theme. Let us not forget the recent "Wrinkle in Time" movie...I enjoyed these books growing up. I am sad to see Amazon pick up this show as they are the most "woke" when it comes to changing original content to reflect post modern, post christian views. I would want my children to experience the same joy I felt about the world building when diving through these books. I can tell you this series will be banned from our home if they try to to steam roll viewers with GOT level over-sexualization or unsolicited gender disphoria in the main characters.
  5. Hi hi and welcome (to the books as well as here)! I haven't heard of the asoiaf series <.< (disclaimer: I may live under a rock) but will have to check it out! As for navigating these forums... My suggestion would be have a look at the descriptions under each main board and segment here: https://dragonmount.com/forums/ And then pop in and say hello in whatever areas interest you! There's space specifically for WoT themed topics - everything from the books themselves and reader experiences and theories to the upcoming TV show; a 'social side' which is super friendly and covers social groups for chats, discussions and info on a huge range interests, and often includes random fun and mayhem; and role play, where you can 'create' your own character for a WoT world and write then into adventures with other "players". The first two threads here https://dragonmount.com/forums/forum/72-introduce-yourself/ could also be good for starting out/if you have more general questions, but really, feel free to get excited and jump on in wherever your fancy takes you!!
  6. lets go lets go lets go!!!!!!!!!!! oh and @Cass GO THE BLUES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. The music is also very important. A song that is specific to the fantasy genre will help to illuminate the plotting and attract new viewers. Game of Thrones, had a powerful score, so, may I suggest something like this, for The Wheel of Time: https://youtu.be/tVGprrog_Ww Please, suggest your own, appropriate, musical theme.
  8. Hi hi and welcome!!! And yep to multiple characters! (Your second one should totally be for the Band of the Red Hand, Black Tower or Wolfkin 😉 ) ^.^ We're a bit quiet at the moment, but it's always good to see a new face who likes to RP, have fun with the bio!!
  9. cat stalks across the courtyard, bartender opens the bottle
  10. They also cherry picked Thrawn and basically made Kylo a really bad Jacen Solo knockoff....
  11. lol, been thinking about getting a Switch for a bit now and between this and the new Fire Emblem definitely getting one now. Most likely picking the fire bunny starter as Virtually every version I've chosen the fire type as my starter lol.
  12. Hi there, not sure if this is correct place to post but have been having a itch to RP again. Used to RP ALOT, mostly Star Wars (Theforce.net), Bleach (Bleachanime.org) with some Buffy/Angel, LOTR, Warcraft, etc mixed in. Looking to create a character from the Borderlands to become a initiate to be a Warder, at least for my first character. (I think I read we can make more than one RP toons?). Looking forward to it and talking with everyone, now to start working on my bio and such. 😄
  13. Hi All all 14 books just arrived yesterday and I am 300 pages into the eye of the world.. it’s exhilarating so far. I had been staying away from the series because I had read somewhere of the lotr similarities (which is my favorite world by far) and have been busy with the asoiaf series and the show. I needed to get onto something else to consume that would in turn consume me as well. Finally decided to take the plunge 2 days back. Looking for both guidance on how to navigate this forum as I continue my journey into this world.. as well as fellow travelers who might be also just beginning their journey ..

  15. So I was browsing the WoT wiki today and noticed that EA and Obsidian had gotten the rights to a WoT MMORPG and was wondering if anything new had been released on that front? Apparently the last thing heard about it was in 2014? I think WoT has plenty of races, factions, 'classes', lore, world building ,etc to make a good MMO.
  16. Please stop changing characters from our favorite books, comics, etc to 'check a box'. The world of WoT has plenty of diversity as is, so what if not alot of that is shown in the first season or w/e, it'll be shown in plenty later. When we see the White Tower not a small amount of diversity will be presented there as Aes Sedai come from all over. On the sexual preference front and the like, please for the love of god do not change the characters... there's plenty of 'pillow friends' and bi relationships and the like as is. Also the Wheel of Time series as a whole mainly focuses on the three young men; Rand, Perrin and Mat. They are the primary characters of the series, though many others play LARGE parts of the story as well.
  17. I was so excited to read about Rosamund Pike. I am very skeptical this LGBTQ thing is going to be done tactfully. Nothing like crowbarring something into a show that will ruin it. The books have enough diversity as they stand, follow them and things will be fine for everyone. No need to over-sexualize this series in any direction.
  18. I enjoy playing NFL Pick'em and also Fantasy Football and I would love to play in both Dragonmount's pick'em league and also the NFL fantasy football league.
  19. I hope Rafe Judkins doesn't pull a Miles Millar and make the kids from Emond's Field look like the Power Rangers, like Millar did in the casting of Shanarra Chronicles TV show. It sounds like Rafe would like to make the Third Age look more like the Woke Age? Where societies and nations are painted with a modern brush, so that cultures in WoT look more Heterogenous with modern sensabilities, just like the world we live in today, but without the cars...
  20. We know episode six is at least using a working title of "The Flame of Tar Valon," taken from Suian's introduction in book 2. I don't think that means it's going to actually delve into book 2. It just means Suian will likely be introduced earlier. I think that's reasonable to expect, if Rafe wants to increase Logain's role in the first season, then we might see him and Elayne, and co (and possibly Min) arrive in Tar Valon, and see Logain's gentling.
  21. I am fully expecting changes, how could I not? Written word and screen are two entirely different mediums. And, of course, it has been a full generation since the first book was written. As long as the spirit of the story is intact I am all for this long-awaited adaptation. 
  22. Imaginative AD. Still against the rules. as it's a disgiused ad.
  23. I don't have a problem with diversity, but fundamentally changing the characters' relationships to one another (Egwene/Gawyn, Perrin/Faille, Moiraine/Thom, Siuan/Gareth, Mat/Tuon, Rand/Min/Aviendha/Elayne, and Nynaeve/Lan, Birgitte/Gaidal Cain), makes them no longer the characters from the books; the writers would then have to change the motivations for many of the things these characters do, and as a result, it would disrupt the actual storyline--since these relationships directly affect important plotlines. There are already many characters in the books who DO represent the LGBTQ community (Aran'gar and Osan'gar, Ailil Riatin and Shalon din Togara Morning Tide, Elaida and Meidani, Galina and Tarna, Seonid Traighan, just to name a few), and the books are already racially diverse. If they're going to change things just for the sake of changing them, they may as well just make up an entirely new story and forget about WoT.
  24. Good picks. 9ers are interesting if Jimmy G can return to form. I love how they built their defense front 7. Nasty D-line. I hadn’t thought of the Steelers but that’s a good one. I was thinking the Chiefs myself. Lost some firepower on offense and their defense (which was already bad) didn’t get any better.
