Know your WoT Quotes? ;)


Recommended Posts

Hello lovelies! :nynaeve:


Welcome to the White Tower's own Quote Game!!! ran by no other than yours truly.


How many times have you re-read WoT? When was the last time you even picked up a WoT book? Or looked at one? Or just dusted the covers cause you're one of those feared cleanliness freaks? :D A lot of valid questions. All will be answered in the midst of quote epicness.


I will be posting a quote daily. More than one, if correct answers are given quickly. If a quote doesn't get guessed in a long while, I'll reveal the answer myself and move on. The task at hand is to say who said the quote and what book it was said in. Even if you only know one of these, you should go right ahead and post. For every correct answer you get a point. Once this activity is over (It's a week long), I will tally all the points and the top winners will receive beautiful signatures with WoT quotes on them (made by me! So yeah, you know they're going to be glamorous ;)).


I will keep this first post updated with the current quote so it would be easier to navigate the thread.



A couple of simple rules:

1. No spamming.

2. Once you posted a guess about who said the quote and/or what book it's from, you're not allowed to guess again until I replied to it with Correct or Wrong.

3. If you mock anyone's guess, you're gonna get smited.

4. No using google. Especially since most of these come from a privately made file and don't exist online (yes, I checked :P).


Note: I'll tweak the level of difficulty according to the rate of correct guesses.



Now lets get this thing started!!! :biggrin:
