So who all has the Encyclopedia? Anyone find some interesting nuggets of information?

 

I checked on some main characters and was a bit disappointed that it didn't do much but summarize. Great resource for looking up the random obscure history though.

I've skimmed and at this point, I feel the same way.  Hardly any new nuggets on main characters.  Moiraine was a "wilder" that's all the new info.

 

That being said, any WoT fan deeply into the series should buy the book for their collection, IMO.

Don't have it. Don't plan on buying it. Saw it in a bookstore there other day. Thumbed thru it and wasn't impressed. My Tolkien and Dune encyclopedias are both much nicer and informative.

 

Not gonna hate on people that want it tho.

Haven't had one in my hand yet, and probably going to take another while. Maybe I'll ask it for my birthday in June...

It definitely has a lot if world info, which is interesting. Would be cool to read through the series with it.

 

I'm thinking about building a Trivial Pursuit game actually, there was one a long time ago that was fun.

I will just copy this from another thread.

 

 

I didn´t have any great expectations since I had read what team Jordan had said about it before I bought it. Still, I was a bit disappointed. The last companion book I bought was A World of Ice and Fire and for some reason I thought that the WoT Companion would look a little like that. I wish it had been a larger book with a lot of great pics, but it isn´t. There are very few pictures, and most of them are old once. That made me disappointed. For some reason I thought we would get a map of the area around Thakan´dar and Shayol Ghul. I thought I had read that somewhere, but obviously I was wrong. Too bad since I love maps. The new ones of the Field of Merrilor didn´t interest me.

 

But... it was great to get to see everyones stregth levels. Some surprised me. (How many of you have created your own strength chart?) It was fun to read about Cadsuane. And Bela, of course. :)

 

Even though I thought it could have been made better I don´t regret buying it. It makes my collection complete. I hope Brandon will be able to talk more about the last books now that this one is out.

 

I don't think Brandon has said much after it was released. Have you heard anything new?

Is there a different word for just birthday?

 

I don't know, but I think I remember people making jokes about it when I said "birthday" before, so I decided to be safe.

@Tina - I feel the same way, still happy to have it, but expected a bit more. It's a good way to look up everything that happened for a person or place quickly though.

    • Because Biden as the VP is not likely to bring back the working class white vote.
    • Actually as a country that effectively practiced apartied itself, The US ais actually in a much better position to judge what is happening as we actually have a somewhat similar history of race relations.   As for "What are you basing this on? What are your sources?"  Stories in the Economist, New York Times, and the Spainish (as in Spain ) national newspapers that have a variety of ideological positions.    
    • " You instead wrote how many paragraph response to such a casual comment? Again, mountain out of a mole hill."   I wrote a few paragraphs showing the historical reality and it's underlying economic rationale.   "What spurned your asshole to shitpost today? "   I happened to read the boards today and so responded.   "PS: I fixed your barely literate quotes with the correct spelling, that you're obviously to lazy, and technologically impaired to figure out on your own."   You definately how signs of Hobgoblin disease!      
    • .As a Justice he does not need to know anything about abortion.contraception, all he needs to know is the proper role of the Supreme Court which is not to judge the wisdom of legislation but only to opine on it's constitutionality.
