The Tainted Times - July/August 2017

Recommended Posts

July was far, far too quiet... so the Tainted Times took a month off to let you all catch up.   :wink:
 
Without further ado... Your BLACK TOWER NEWS.  Because yay!

 
 
 

NEW ARRIVALS


Another three brave and crazy individuals joined our ranks in August...
 
Pageboy popped in mid-month to align with the saidin wielders...
 
Technically a return after an extreeeeemely long absence, Nynaeve decided to give the other side of the Source a whirl...
 
And finally, Gentled Ben stopped lurking in the corners of the practice yard and stepped forward for training.  Good on ya, friend. :wink:
 
 
 

PROMOTIONS


Stay tuned!  With the return of our Lady Dragon after a sojourn without internet access in the wilderness, we should have news to report soon!
 
For those who are interested in finding your way into this list, see our offsite info page for specifics on what One Power levels you'll need to rank up. If you have questions, just ask!  
 
 
 

ANNOUNCEMENTS


The restoration of the spiffy offsite rollers that are smarter than you and I combined is still in progress (TMD and Nikon are too scary to nag about it, you know?), but for those who are dying to try out their new One Power levels and get your battle on, the old version of the rollers that require manual input are back up and ready for use - click here to find the Dore Saidin roller, and here if you need the True Power roller.

 

 
 
 

EVENTS AND GAMES


Since our last Tainted Times update, BFG's BT Bonded Mafia game has come and gone, resulting in a thrilling Town win. 
 
Niniel's WoT Kids themed mafia game is underway!
 
If you missed out on the mafia, don't worry, another game is always in the works... in the meantime, Niniel's started an A-Z game with rotating topics for your game-playing pleasure.

By the way, I'm planning on updating the Points Page today, but no guarantees as I'm kinda ill after a very busy week with a lot of late nights and stuff.

    • Danai Gurira would work for me as Semhirage.  
    • My pick for Gareth Bryne is David Boreanaz:   David Boreanaz (/ˌbɔːriˈɑːnəz/;[1] born May 16, 1969) is an American actor, television producer, and director, known for playing the roles of vampire-turned-private investigator Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003) and its spinoff Angel (1999–2004); FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth on the television crime procedural comedy-drama series Bones (2005–2017); and Jason Hayes in the military drama series SEAL Team.      
    • Bayle Domon is an intelligent man who acts gruff, but seems to have a heart of gold. Though it states that he is a broad, muscular man with a round face, his appearance to a degree is less integral than the character, IMO. He makes me think of a snugly teddy bear who could kill if need be.   At the moment my heart is quite set on Jeffrey Dean Morgan:   Jeffrey Dean Morgan (born April 22, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his roles as John Winchester on the fantasy horror series Supernatural (2005–07, 2019), Denny Duquette on the medical drama series Grey's Anatomy (2006–09), The Comedian in the superhero film Watchmen (2009), Jason Crouse on the political drama series The Good Wife (2015–16), Negan on the horror drama series The Walking Dead (2016–present), and Harvey Russell in Rampage (2018).
    • Tam al'Thor doesn't actually appear in the series except the first chapter or 2, a bit in the middle, and then towards the end again. Much is made of his fighting skills, but it's not shown very often. As such, I don't think it's necessary to get someone known for those skills to be the actor. Obviously if one can be found, wonderful.   I've not really made up my mind about an actor, but I have this offering:   Billy Burke: William Albert Burke (born November 25, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his role as Charlie Swan in Twilight and its sequels. In 2011, he played Cesaire in Red Riding Hood. In 2012, he was cast as one of the lead characters, Miles Matheson, in the NBC science-fiction series Revolution. From 2015 to 2017, he starred in the CBS series Zoo. He has also appeared in the supernatural horror film Lights Out (2016) and the thriller Breaking In (2018).   He's done quite well at playing the solid, supporting father. He's not bad on the eye either. He can bulk up if need be.            
    • There is a faint arrow next to the Revol...   If you press that arrow it will take you to page 4.
