DM News:Reading the Wheel of Time Plus Free Eye of the World Ebook

Recommended Posts

Later this month, will be kicking off a new column devoted to reading The Wheel of Time, aptly named "Reading the Wheel of Time."  This weekly article will be headed by Kelsey Jefferson Barrett.  Barrett, though steeped in sci-fi and fantasy, has yet to embark on a journey through The Wheel of Time series.  He will be looking at it all through a new lens and with fresh perspective.  Barrett's first steps through Randland will debut Tuesday, February 20th.


To celebrate this, and encourage everyone to read along, is giving away free ebook copies of The Eye of the World to Tor's Ebook Club members!  The free copies can only be redeemed February 13th, 14th, and 15th!  Be sure to act quickly so you don't get left behind!


Wheel of Time fans rallied behind Leigh Butler and her reread on, and I'm sure Barrett will do an equally amazing job of seeing the depth and complexities that make up Robert Jordan's universe.  I'm excited to gaze upon its wonder for the first time--even if only by association.

    • 1) Your Handle: Jagen Sedai 2) Your Character's full name: Jagen Halin / Celestine Erebruz 3) Your Character's Type and Level (New or Returning: Trainee/Warder; Novice/Accepted/Aes Sedai - Traditional or Salidar): Sitter, Red Ajah / Aes Sedai, Yellow Ajah 4) Do you have see/have access to post on the RP IC boards? Yes! 5) Do you see/have access to post on the Tar Valon OOC sub boards? Yes!
    • This is great :)   I do have one question, and maybe you guys plan on changing it, I'm not sure: What is the difference between the Boards "The Great Hall" and "The Hall of the Tower" inside the White Tower board? I can't really figure it out >_>   Also, is it possible, maybe, or desired, to change "Secret Whisper Hole" to be something more obvious for new comers?
    • So, I have   A Red, A novice, and a Tower Guard (unbonded warder.. who was bonded to a green once upon a time). I have another tower Guard I'm debating to pull in too.. but toddler steps.. (since i rarely do things slow... still.)   I also have a few NSW's that i submitted years ago that included a Blue, a Red and i 'think' a brown? 
    • To PREFACE: I did this simply because I had the curiosity and time to do so. I wanted to know how the DM OP scores would compare to WoT canon, so I tried figuring it out.   Also, I felt like doing this in case DM ever decided to go with canon WoT OP scores, which I think would be cool, but seems a bit complicated. Maybe I'm doing it too simplistically.  But, I sort of wanted to be ahead of the game, in case someone wanted the work done.   Ultimately, I really wanted to answer the question, "What would DM AS scores be on RJ's canon scale?"   So, I began by copying the table of the DM Aes Sedai OP scores. I then arranged it by strength, figuring out that there is a range of 13 strength levels (or categories) that Player Characters fall under per the WT rule of "Females [receive a strength score] from 22-34".   Unfortunately I came upon a part where I can't seem to figure out any more, so I'm posting what I hashed out in a Notepad on my computer. Feel free to leave a comment if anyone wishes. I can now see why Jordan had to go into + (positive) scoring... I went into - (negative) high scores, myself.       Feel free to correct anything potentially wrong or misinformed.
    • Dice quickly throws a dagger at Cairos (whens the last time I lost a Joust boofhead??"   Dice finally manages to pull Bunyan away from the baby Trolloc. Suddenly he feels Bunyan stiffen, then he starts to strut....  "what are you..." then Dice sees Chae   or more her mount       he looks at bunyan "Oh NO!!  dont tell me!!" Bunyan struts again   FACEPALM   Dice jumps off and gets in front of his horse   "What ARE YOU THINKING!!!!!???" he screams "thats the competition!! oh cmon!! its wearing PINK RIBBONS for crying out loud!!!   You DO remember Ebou Dar dont you?? COME ON!!! snap OUT of it!"   Dice slaps Bunyan and gets a death glare and a snort    "you awake now? Can we do this??" Bunyan turns grudgingly towards the lists. Dice quickly remounts muttering about bloody pink ribbons and the fact that women really WILL talk about ANYTHING!!!!!!       pulling into the lists Dice yells to Chae "Cmon Archer girl! youve run your mouth now its time to pay the gleeman!!
