A Tribute to Robert Jordan

This forum is here as a chance for all those who wish to pay their respects to Robert Jordan to do so.

For discussions about the WOT projects Red Eagle Entertainment is working on. And not only for members to discuss - once in a while the people behind Red Eagle drop by to address issues they find interesting.

 

The Gathering Storm

The place to talk about the latest volume of WOT. Warning: Once the book has been released, this board will have spoilers, so you might want to wait until you have read the book before browsing.

 

General Wheel of Time Discussion

Here you can discuss anything at all to do with WoT. If you can't see it, post a new topic. Please discuss in a polite and respectful manner and have patience... some people may not yet have read all the books and/or be totally new to all the topics. If you hope to avoid spoilers, post your topic with a request 'up to book X only, please'.

 

Structured Wheel of Time Discussion

As the name says, here the discussion is more structured. You must read their Do's and Don'ts sticky before posting. New topics are posted by the Moderators only though you can make suggestions. Please use search function to see if your topic is already there before making your request. Feel free to post your querries/observations... some may not contain any posts as yet.

 

Eye of the World

Ever wanted to go back and discuss the first book as though it was your first time through? As though there were no other books out and no spoilers to run int? Well, here's your chance. Be sure to read the Do's and Don'ts sticky before posting.

We hold discussions, engage in games, have contests and just relax and make fun of each other. Do you want to be around people that can cheer you up when you're sad? Laugh with you? Be a family to you? If you've answered yes to any of those questions, the Aiel Organization is the perfect Org for you!

Black Tower (Org)

Greetings, and welcome to the insanity that is The Black Tower!

 

The Black Tower is the gaming community of Dragonmount. Where we engage in One Power Fights for which we have designed a system which involves a set of Fight Rollers, which are provided courtesy of the Staff, for your use in burninating your fellow members! We also have discussions on new games, books, movies and other items and are currently developing our own MMORPG, so all game programmers are welcome in the hope we can make a kick @ss game.

 

If you like the sound of all that, then you must have come to the right place. So stop by our boards, post around and feel the place out. Meet the other Madmen of the Black Tower and earn yourself some points so that you can increase your skill in the One Power and your Rank within the Tower. Have fun. You'll find that we are a pretty casual bunch of people around here. Savage, yes. Insane, yes. We just have a twisted sense of humor is all... (We blame the Taint for that!)

 

"Please Beware of Random Stabbings and Beatings."

-Sincerely, The Staff

 

The Illuminators (Org)

Even If you are vaguely creative this is the place for you.

 

This is where where poets meet painters by the fireside, where we talk about costume making and photography, whilst our musicians are tuning their instruments. Sig makers are discussing fonts and a whole new world is being created by the writers. But be warned, if you are on a diet, you might find all the talk about yummy food in the Crafters a bit disturbing...

 

Not a creative bone in your body? Don't worry; we are happy to see visitors. You might be able to give some of the feedback creative people need. Maybe you have a creative dilemma with which we can help? Each House of the Illuminators have creative projects to expand your skills and teach you new ones. You might discover hidden talents in the process! Click here for more info.

 

Signature Requests

Where you can post a request for one of those amazing designs. Please read the announcement thread on this board before doing so. You also have the option to enter into a monthly auction for a new signature. All it involves is that you post a number between 1 and 500  here.

 

 

The Kin (Org)

The Kin’s goal is to accept members from all associations and walks of life, whether they are able to “channel” or not. We were born from the imagination of a few members of other Orgs who had found that they didn’t quite “fit” into life at our home Org. Here at the Kin, we’ve created a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere where we have points and raisings, but our focus is mostly on each other, not on status.

 

We have monthly projects that include a monthly exchange, an information/connecting thread at DM and an assortment of other fun things. Our interests cover everything that our members are interested in. Our focus is on each other; strengthening the bonds of “Kinship” we’ve created at DM and enjoying each other’s company. Our activities and conversations, chat nights and very personal raisings all work towards that goal.

 

Ogier (Org)

Welcome to the Stedding fellow treebrothers and treesisters!

 

The Treebrothers and Treesisters of the Ogier welcome you to our Steddings.  Kick back and relax with a full stein and a pipe of the finest tabac around.  We have a variety of activities centered around our theme of Books and History.  Join us and take part as a Scholar, Brewer, Builder, or defend the Stedding as a member of the feared Deathwatch Guard.  Come be a part of our close knit family, and take a break from the longing.

Seanchan (Org)

DM’s home for Movie, TV and Gaming. The Seanchan boards host an array of topics ranging from upcoming movie news, current TV shows, reviews of current movies, popular video games and much, much more. Our boards also have up to date movie trailers and movie/TV shows of the month discussions. Please feel free to drop in and participate.

Shayol Ghul (Org)

New Members post here: http://forums.dragonmount.com/index.php/topic,21429.0.html We’ll hook you up with a nice informative pm that will give you some ideas of where to start.

 

Additional information about our Org: http://forums.dragonmount.com/index.php/topic,31874.0.html

 

Shayol Ghul is an activity based Org that uses points to move up through the ranks. We are divided into three Factions: Black Ajah, Shadowspawn, and Dreadlords. Each Factions adheres to a different type of evil. We enjoy invading each other, being competitive, and posting. We are a rough bunch of people, so enter our lair with an open mind and a lot of patience. We are stark, opinionated, fun loving, rowdy people who while on the outside seem gruff and apathetic, are very loyal to one another, and to Shayol Ghul. Oh yeah, and we like to post *coughspamcough*. A lot. So, if you enjoy playing games, rough housing, and much randomness, then you’ll feel right at home here! *stabs* Welcome to SG!

 

The White Tower (Org)

The White Tower Organization has something for everyone!  Our members have a wide variety of interests, backgrounds, ages and nationalities.  You cannot help but feel that you are home from the moment you set foot in our doors and are greeted like an old friend.

 

Our Organization offers two paths of ranks you may choose from when you join.  In the Warder's Guild, you will start as an Algai, then progress through the ranks of Manshima and finally Der'Manshima.  As a full Warder, you will belong to one of three disciplines of like-minded brothers and sisters in battle.

 

You may instead choose the path of Aes Sedai.  You will start as Novice, and learn much on your way to Accepted and then Aes Sedai.  When raised to the shawl, you will enter into one of seven Ajahs with causes as varied as the days of the week.

 

Whether you are male or female, and regardless of which path you choose (we have people of both genders in each), you will be sure to find your home among the large family that is the White Tower Org.

 

In the Age of Legends, Aes Sedai were known as the Servants of All.  The White Tower Org is filled with lots of friendly people ready to meet you and help you on your journey to becoming a Warder or Aes Sedai. How will YOU choose to serve?

Wolfkin (Org)

The wolfkin is the nature community of dragonmount. Whether it is taking a walk down the trails of your nearest natural park, or sitting on your front porch watching the sunrise, we encourage our members to appreciate what is out there. We ask them share what joys they have found with the community so others might see and enjoy what other parts of the world have to offer. Through pictures and park reviews we share our love for the natural world in its wild state…. ok enough official stuff we are also the party org of dragonmount and if you love a good party come to the wolfkin. You will have a blast and fit right in. well hope you stop by to see us. I’m sure you will fall in love and never ever want to leave.

 

Our ranks at present are: pup, packmate and wolfbrother/sister. It takes 10 points to get raised to the next rank. To join the wolfkin is very simple. Go to your usergroups on dragonmount and select wolfkin org and click join. Once you have done that our private boards will appear right below our public boards. There you must come and post that you have arrived for us to “officially” welcome you though all are welcome to come and join us.

To join the PSW, please submit a character biography to your chosen Division. More information can be found on the RP Discussion board and on the Biographies board. Read only if you have not yet been cleared by RP staff!!

 

 

Dragon Reborn Planning

 

Biographies (DR)

Place to start if you are interested in Roleplaying. You will find a thread with instructions on what your bio should contain and tips on how to write a bio well. You will also find details on where to send your completed bio. Once you have sent your Bio to the correct bio checker for your Division, it will be approved and then posted here for CCing (Cross Checking). When you see it has been marked as CCed (Cross Checked) you are ready to start RPing.

 

Role Play Discussion

This board is to discuss anything relevent to the DR PSW RP boards.

 

 

Peoples of the Light

 

Children of the Light (DR Div)

Do you want to protect the innocent and stamp out evil? Are you interested in digging for the truth - no matter what it takes - to rid the world of Darkfriends and Witches? The Children of the Light Division may be the place for you.

 

Whether you wish to fight in the Army of the Light, punish wrongdoers as a member of the Hand of the Light, or act as a spy in our PSW's creation the Order of the Light, the Children of the Light provide a haven for those of all nationalities who wish to serve Our Creator. Everyone is welcome - from the most rabid of believers to the more liberal interpreters of Lothair Mantelar's works.

 

Warders (DR Div)

Our Division is more than just Warriors bonded to Aes Sedai. Many men and women choose never to bond to an Aes Sedai and instead dedicate their lives to protecting all Aes Sedai and the White Tower, itself. These individuals are Tower Guards. All who undergo the training will become Tower Guards, if even for a very brief moment before their chosen Aes Sedai bonds them as a Gaidin. If you find the calling to protect Aes Sedai and all that they stand for, join the Warders Division and begin your journey toward becoming one of the greatest fighters The Wheel of Time has ever known. By accepting the challenge and joining us you too can stand on the slopes of Shayol Ghul and battle the shadow during the last battle.

 

 

White Tower (DR Div)

Lightning crashes from your fingertips, you hold a man's life in the palm of your hands, the world waits as you pull the strings behind the throne. These are all possible outcomes of becoming an Aes Sedai in the White Tower. It's the ultimate power and at times the most humbling of experiences. If you had powers such as these, what would you do with them? Would you help to save the world from the onset of the shadow or perhaps would you work towards a darker purpose?

 

Here, at the White Tower Division, we welcome you to write to your hearts content and find out your true path.

 

Visit our website to get an indepth look at what it means to be a member of the WT Division.

http://aliciawilkerson.com/whitetower/

 

All the Ajahs found within the books are included in the White Tower roleplay, yes that's right even the one that dosen't really exist. *looks* It dosen't matter your time amount, skill level, or gender, we have a home here for everyone.

When you join the White Tower, you start your journey roleplaying as a Novice, and you will gain experience and develop your character as you progress through the ranks of Accepted and finally Aes Sedai!  During this time you'll make friends and enemies galore (inside the RP world-- outside of it all you'll find are friends).  After your raising, you may make two more characters of any rank at all to triple your RP possiblities!  Whatever you do, and whatever Ajah you choose, the main thing is that you'll have a great time!

 

So come and meet us, and see what you think.

Congress of the Shadows

 

Shayol Ghul (DR Div)

CotS is the only Division where we are all openly evil. It is also the only Division you can be nominally part of while also being in another Division (A Darkfriend suldam, or a Darkfriend Warder)!

 

CotS is the Division, however, for those of us who want to be openly evil, who don't want to hide amongst the shadows, pretending to be friendly, and praising the Light, it is for those of us who wish to destroy the Borderlands, ravage the southern nations, and free the Great Lord!

 

You see, CotS is one of the most varied, and open Divisions in Dragonmount. You can be a Darkfriend Assassin, maybe a courtesan, or a Dreadlord, using the Power to destroy all who stand before you. You can even be a Trolloc, and live in the Blight, or be a Myrddraal, and command fist upon fist of Trollocs, ripping apart Lightfool armies, even Darkhounds are now an option, sending erie howls into the night. Either way, CotS freedom of choice makes it a great Div.

 

 

The Unaligned Races

 

Freelanders (DR Div)

The lands are rife with war and strife.

The Dark One seeks to own,

All that you have and hold and love:

The seeds of Darkness sown.

 

It is said in some corners that the White Tower pulls the weaves of the Pattern and in others that the Dark One’s minions seek to shape the future into some bleak desolation of our world. When Power faces Power, Nation faces Nation and Black Coats face seven-shades of shawls, who will be left to defend you and yours? Who will take up arms to guard your lives and your ways of life? Take your destiny into your own hands! No lessons but life lessons. No boundaries but those of your own devising. Be as free as the wind. Join the Freelanders…

 

…It is your life, lead it as you will!

 

 

The Peoples of the Dragon

 

Aiel (DR Div)

Our home … the wetlanders call it the Waste, the trollocs and other Shadowtwisted creatures call it Djevik K’shar. Both have the same meaning – the Land of Death, where nothing survives. Nothing, but the Aiel. We call our home the Three Fold Land a shaping stone to makes us, a testing ground to prove our worth, a punishment for our sin. Yes, it is a cruel land, without mercy and unforgiving. It does not tolerate weakness, and has thousands of ways to kill you, but there is no other place in this world where I would want to live.

 

Can you survive the Land of Death? Come join the Aiel Division, and find out.

 

Band of the Red Hand (DR Div)

Grab yourself a Bandweiser and join us in the Citadel.  We at the Band are what we like to call "quality assurance" people.  We assure that those we battle (Shaido, Seanchan, Trollocs, door-to-door salesmen) are ruthlessly slaughtered in a manner that leaves them going, "Wow, those people knew what they were doing.  I'd go shake their hands, but I can't seem to find my own hands at the moment."

 

There are several divisions you can choose from.  If you like the feel of wind in your hair as you're riding down on the trembling front lines, then the Cavalry is the place for you.  However, if getting into people's faces is more your thing (not to mention if you prefer to harass those dumb cavaliers), then it's the Infantry for you.  However, if you're a sneaky individual and feel the need to hide from the enemy (or hide from the fool Infantry before feathering their backsides), then the Scouts want you.  Of course, if you want to sit back, relax, and just pepper the enemy from afar ("enemy" being defined as the other team, the Cavalry, the Infantry, and the Scouts), then the Archers have a bow with your name on it.  Finally, if you're a conscientious objector (or just a bad fighter), come to the Medics and Services.  We assure you that they get the last laugh, especially since they're the ones that repair the other four divisions after their infighting.

 

 

Black Tower (DR Div)

"Can you feel the call of saidin? Does the male half of the One Power throb in your veins? Do you have the discipline and the strength of will to survive the rigours of channeling and the taint? The Dragon Reborn has declared amnesty for your kind - once despised and feared, pitied and rejected - will you answer his call?"

 

The Black Tower Division is the Dragon Reborn Portal Stone World's haven for channeling males (other than those fiendish Dreadlords in Shayol Ghul). The majority of the characters who choose this Division are Asha'man - men who wield the One Power - however others may choose to join the Division with non-channeling characters known simply as Civilians. If magic and mayhem are in your nature, then perhaps a character here would be one worth your choosing!

 

Wolfkin (DR Div)

Do you find your eyesight sharpening? Do you find yourself howling at the full moon? Have you been suffering from excessive hair growth? Have your eyes adopted a distinct yellow shade? If your answer to all of those questions is yes, then you might have hepatitis! But if you get checked and it comes back negative then you DEFENITELY belong in the Wolfkin Div!

 

Whether you choose to be a Ranger, a Tracker, a Sage or a Watcher, we welcome you with open arms to join our big happy family! So join the Wolfkin! If you RP you get cookies!

 

HAVE FUN!!
