[GAME OVER] Who? What? Where? at the Black Tower - Ayla wins!

Recommended Posts

I'm a little bored, so let's play a game.


I've had a look through wikipedia and found a famous/historical figure. You need to ask questions to find out who it is, what they did or what happened to them, and where it happened. I will say yes or no, according to the information on the wiki. When you find the answers for my first person I have another. And so it will continue, for at least a little while. I'm thinking 5 Rounds to start with - but if you're having fun I will carry on a bit more.


You will earn one game point for every correct answer you identify, so you can earn up to three game points per round. I will even write you a clue for each round, because I'm so very nice.


***Please wait for me to answer your question before you post another one - thanks :smile:***

Oh man I have never been good at these games... Where to start?


This will require the mustering of what little brain power I have remaining free.

You could always try Compulsion and make me tell you the answer, other than that a good place to start might be to ask a question about the person ... or the place ... or what happened. :happy:

    • So there is a moment when Avienda and Rand jumped to Seachan. what is inexplicable is how Avienda describes the Suldam.  Egwene started training with Moraine and Elayne was around Elaida for years, then they train in the tower, but when they are standing next to a woman with the spark born in her, like Avienda, they like her, but they don’t recognize her talent, etc. This talent recognition seems to get refined over time. however, when Avienda sees a suldam for the first time from 100? feet away she is describing how the suldam aren’t born with the talent, but they can be trained, but it’s really weird because they are old but never channeled before in their lives. What??? maybe she has a talent...
    • It should be noted, no society actually allowed blacksmiths to go to war. Their benefit to war effort by producing armor and weapons outweighs any benefit they may contribute on a battlefield. just learned this yesterday, but it is so obvious...
