DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY
Mairoh

Hi all!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, Mairoh here! I'm a huge fan of the WoT books, although it's been ages since I've read them. Well over a decade at least. I read them all the way through the 11th book, but sadly haven't had the chance to pick up the last three. I know, I know, go to a bookstore, right? But I live out in the country and the nearest library doesn't have them *sigh*. 

Anyway, I had turned my interest to other book series, and then to my own series (which is still very much a work in progress). But then I saw a thing on youtube about an upcoming WoT TV series and...well, I about **** my pants. Whilst looking up every bit of info I could find, I stumbled across the site, and I was surprised (and pleased!) to see how big and active the WoT community still is after so many years. So I decided to join up, interact and stuff, even though I haven't been active on a forum since...oh, the original Jedi Council Forums (for anyone who might possibly know what that was/is). So forgive me if my acronyms are out of date 😉

So in short, I'm excited to be here, and looking forward to being a part of what looks like a great community of like-minded fans!

We're very glad you finally made it here! 🙂

 

Do you have a favourite character or group in the WoT books?

Hmm...there's quite a few characters that I like, but I think I have to say that my favorite was always Rand, and the Asha'man were my favorite group. What can I say, I felt sorry for the boys 😉 But in all seriousness, the insanity factor always intrigued me, and it was fun watching how Rand went about setting up the Black Tower.

 

Also, thanks for the welcome, everyone!

I liked them too, and for the same reason!

    • I am currently rereading WOT for the first time since first reading it. I was just reading the following quote from chapter 12.   “You must handle it,” Moiraine said in answer to something unheard from Lan. “He will remember too much as it is, and no help for it. If I stand out in his thoughts. . . .”   I am trying to figure out what this might be referring to and can't remember what it might be. If somebody could point out what this is meant to reference I would appreciate it. 
    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.  Many of the characters have do offensive things and have offensive thoughts so hopefully they can let that shine through.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen. 
    • In this thread: some people who are gonna lose their shit when non white actors get cast despite most characters not having an explicitly established skin colour and Randland being a far future setting where skin colour is entirely irrelevant.
