  2. I hated most of the characters at various times in the story, but none all of the time. In the early books I couldn't stand Mat and Nyn, but later in the story I came to love them both. Nyn was never exactly fun, but her loyalty and strength was beyond doubt. There were points in the story where Rand was annoying or infuriating, but it was all part of his evolution into what he needed to be to save the world. Egwene's pride and arrogance could be hard to take, but I don't see how anyone could fail to admire her courage and commitment. Perrin's self doubt, even after he had accomplished so much, was frustrating but he eventually accepted his role. Elayne was only major character I consistently disliked (and Min was probably the only one I that I can't remember ever disliking).
  3. Do you want to breathe new life into your hardback set of The Wheel of Time novels? If so, Juniper Books has just released a set of dust jackets that encompass all fourteen books within the main series and includes New Spring, the prequel. Juniper Books specializes in creating dust jackets that have a visual aesthetic. The Wheel of Time set shows an image of a dragon with the ancient symbol of the Aes Sedai in the background. The complete set together looks stunning and can be visually appealing on anyone’s bookshelf. If you already have all the books in the series, you can buy only the dust jackets. If you don’t have all the books and you want them, now’s a good time to buy the books and the dust jackets all at once! Though these are not officially released by Tor or by anyone on Team Jordan, they were made with their approval. Juniper Books said, “We are so thrilled that Robert Jordan's wife and editor Harriet McDougal and co-author Brandon Sanderson both love this design. Celebrating Robert Jordan's incredible story with this jacket design has been an honor for the Juniper Books team. The design pays homage to the Dragon Banner, set against a backdrop representing The Flame of Tar Valon and the Dragon's Fang - opposing elements that represent the themes of balance and the cyclical nature of time present in the series.” To learn more about the other book series Juniper Books wares, you can look at their catalog here.

  5. @Lancer, the thing is that Ice and Fire and WOT are different in that WOT is not as in you face as Ice and Fire about blood, sex and general crudity. I never watched the show, only listened to the first four books but I think WOT will want to appeal to a wider audience, which may mean fiddling with Rand's relationships.
  6. Yesterday
  7. well underboob sweat depends on how active you are and how big a sweater you are. i’m somewhere between an A and a B and can still some of that sweat.
  8. Good going Also the PG-13 interpetation may vary some amongst groups..though only on minor things not the major ones. So my advice is to look a bit at culture in the groups, some are more lets say flirty then others 😉 Ok now onto the part thats more extensive, and geting to know this club and its subgroups more in debt. Part Two: The Subgroups So what we normally recommend is that you start a post in your class thread and go back and edit it over time, and that the format is as follows: [Ajah/Guild] --[Who is in charge] --[general focus if there is one] --[link to relevant post #1] --[link to relevant post #2] Rinse and repeat for at least five of the eight Ajahs and Warders Guild. * We also ask that for the Guild, you go into the focus of each Discipline. The who, spam, and posts can be for the Guild as a whole. As well as posting, chating with people like you already started in discord is going to help you get to know the groups better through its members, and can be good for clarifications if you feel you aint quite geting the grasp from treads alone.
  9. No, I don't how , if you will know, so tell me here 🙂

    Book Progress

    Elliot Aronson, Cialdini, Dan Kahneman. I read a lot of psychology, because I need to prepare for the project.
  11. Completely agree! I just can't wait til everywhere is up to full strength and we can put on some really cool stuff 😂
  12. Oh absolutely not, there have been people that took yeeeeeeears. Not exaggerating. Take your time, be confident in your pick, besides being an aspie is fun!
  13. I follow this meme page that takes classical drawings and paintings and makes them into memes, it's honestly so funny you get the jist 😂
  14. Yeah, I may very well end up being the oldest novice the tower hava seen, lol 😄 those accepted ceremonies are too scary!
  15. ooh and you'll be able to get a shirt that fits around your waist AND your boobs without that terrible button gape. And fingers crossed for no more underboob sweat! And if they're sore around your time of the month you're not going to be hurting them just moving your arm! So many benefits! It's gonna be really good, Mashi. I have pretty darn big boobs too and they don't bother me but I'm built quite broad, with big shoulders etc. My friend who wears the same size as me roughly gets loads of back pain but she's much more slight. She's looking into getting a breast reduction too. Well done you on doing something scary.
  16. I know but before we take on full events, we need a litle more then just one disc active lolz
  17. You can take as long as you need Lava 😂
  18. Due respect to all...I disagree. I think people can handle a lot if your put it in the right way. I also find it pretty Hilarious, that people can accept a 14-18 yo Murder Goddess in Arya Stark and do not bat an eye when she PWNED everyone that was on her "List" in the show, yet those same people went Ape$hit when she had Sex for the 1st time (and not even on screen). People were also "Cool" w/ Jamie & Cercei having Incest (On & Off Screen) when on GoT, and you didnt hear religious outcry or public outcry over that. But Heaven forbit Rand have 3 Love interests & want to be w/ them Carnelly & Relationship wise?? GTFOH!! This 3some relationship will distinguish the show if they do it well & explain it well. GoT was criticized for gratuitous sex for the first 2 seasons but people got over it, when the blood & violence took over. WoT can distinguish itself by keeping the arcs & cultures and nuance that makes the books great w/ the right tweaks in the TV show.
  19. lii: that is a really good topic! Blank: If it's not named the knightmare, it really should be. It sounds like fun I can't wait!
  20. Life happens, I think I'm mostly caught up after my inactive period😛 awww...I never say no to hugs! *huggles back*
  21. The Warders used to run a big game show event? Was it even medieval themed, I wanna say Knightmare? And there was loads games like boggle and "guess who's purse/handbag it is" from willing Tower participants and there was trivia games and pictionary and a bunch I'm forgetting. It's a too big of event to run now but I'd love to see it revived in the future if/when we get busier because of the tv show. I can defo help if you need it. This seems like such an important topic Lii!
  22. Oooh..so many interesting answers.. Man choosing an ajah will be so dificult, maybe I'll just stay a novice🙂
  23. I'm working on being more active... I'm also only a message away if anyone ever needs. *squishy hugs *
  24. Well I didn't scare him away yet so that is good😄 So happy to see you again MoN🤗 *ooohs and aaahs at the sparkle*
  25. Her tower guards stayed with the gate guards. Viviane didn’t seem to mind that leaving these two behind. Then again, she also didn’t mind his lateness. Viviane chattered to herself, noting the elements of the black tower, her hunger for accumulating knowledge unstinted. Ful watched her for a while, her eager moves, girlish glee at new details, the chop of the breeze fluttering her red shawl. He smiled. When asked about the walls, he said quietly, “yes, Viviane Sedai. It’s a never ending work in progress. Everybody pitches in at the quarries and buildings… asha’aman, students, even normal people without powers who live on the farm. It’s not grand, but it’s our home.” He was alert and sharp as always. He walked in front of the aes sedai, soaking up the details like Viviane. But the details he noticed would be far less pertinent and immediately useful than the red sister’s. He doubted many sisters would ever have come here under her own steam. For him, the black tower was the epicenter of the male channelers culture, the big bright world Ful had always dreamed about and of which he yearned to be a part. But Viviane lived and worked in Tar Valon, that vast, bloated hub of industry of commerce, the most productive capital in the region—the white tower and its city boasted a human culture for thousands of years, governed by powerful nobles and aes sedai, whose combined wealth and influence rivaled the output worth of whole countries. It was the administrative heart, whose reach and power extended across the world. The black tower rose before them, gleaming in the sun. Once inside, Ful could appreciate how nice, how towering it was even in its unfinished state. Rising from pillars formed of basalt and limestone, the tower and its other buildings were constructed from smoothly fitted, stone blocks, their facades weather-washed, their roofs dressed with copper tiles. Gargoyles yarned at the gutter ends or curled around pipes and drain sluices. Upper levels had balconies with railings; many of the balconies had construction scaffolding and awnings. Arched stone bridges and metal stairs linked buildings, and sometimes across the canal. Along the canal sides, stone walkways formed a street for pedestrians. And there were many of those. The place was alive with movement, color, noise. Once they got into the farm proper, their passage down was slowed by other traffic. Above them, everywhere he looked were banners celebrating different regiments of the dragon. Tinny music played out, distorted, from the horns that dressed the street. The canal was busy. Ful saw a few young men, all wearing their newly issued coats, drunk despite the early hour. Soldiers, raising hell and risking death by downing as they enjoyed their free hours before lessons and chores. Ful wondered when he graduated, would he be sent to a gateway bound for who knew what horror half a world away? One of the boys fell into the canal as they tried stagger home. His friends dredged him out, and baptized his head with the contents of a beer bottle. “They’re simply having fun,” he said. “There’ll be hard work later.” He knew one of the boys from the soup kitchen... He smiled his brightest smile as he showed her on the map. “See, dorms are five streets away. Now that you're here, is there anywhere in particular you’d like to see first, Viviane Sedai?”
