  1. Hm... sounds kind of weird but also interesting. Actually, the other way around. I don’t love Ender’s game but I liked most of the story. I could not get into Dune. I have tried twice but I just can’t. Maybe I will watch the new movie instead.
  2. What kind of book is The Ocean at the End of the Lane?
  3. Dune - Frank Herbert Ender’s Game - Orson Scott Card
  4. Correct. It's more about like/not like because I have no strong feelings for them but I couldn't understand all of the positive reviews for Stardust. Hm... I haven't read any of them so I will just guess that you like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and hate The 5th Season.
  5. I saw this somewhere else and thought that it would be fun to try it here. You write the titles of two books - one that you like and one that you dislike. The rest of us can then guess which one you like or don't like. It might lead to a discussion about those books as well. You don't need to wait for someone else to guess before you write a post of your own. Of course there will be points for everyone playing. I'll start: American Gods - Neil Gaiman Stardust - Neil Gaiman
  6. August Roll Call 10 points to Niniel Illian Tear Dar'Jen UPDATED
  7. How are you all doing? Looking forward to the fall? (Or whatever season you have in your country.) I always like a new season when it arrives. I'm looking forward to colourfull leaves on the trees, going on walks in the woods but also shorter days sitting inside reading a good book. 5 points for signing in and 5 additional points for telling us about some of your favourite characters (in WoT or any other books). I have so many favourite characters in WoT: Rand, Moridin, Moiraine, Verin, Min, Loial... The list is long. I think that I value Moiraine even more these days. She really did everything she could to make sure that the Dragon Reborn would make it to the Last Battle. One of my favourite characters of all time is Iroh in Avatar: The airbender. If you have seen it you know why. Who can not love Iroh?
  8. The BT Staff needs some reinforcement. I'm searching for a new Faction Leader of the Light. You are a member of the Light faction but it doesn't matter what rank you currently have. The most important part is that you want to be active in the BT and try your best to make it a fun place to visit. You will plan things with me and Illian Tear and just look after the BT and it's members. You will see to it that all members follows the rules. As a reward you will get staff points each months. If this sounds like something you would like then send me an appliction. Tell me a little about yourself and why you would be a good Faction Leader.
  9. Welcome to the Black Tower! Great to see a new face around here. Tell us a little about yourself. Have you read the whole series? Who is your favourite character? Favourite asha'man? Do you prefer ice cream or cake? Let us know if you have any questions.
  10. @Illian Tear You are not only the Black Tower's M'Hael but you are now also Asha'man of the second level. I don't think we have had anyone reach this level since we added it so we do not have any traditions connected to it. But I think it deserves a celebration. Maybe with some brownies? Thanks for being so active in the tower!
  11. @Harldin Step forward Harldin. You have earned enough points to be a soldier. Congratulation to Harldin on promotion to Soldier! You are now allowed to pick a faction. Light or Shadow? Search your soul and make a wise decision.
  12. Interesting. Do you feel that you learn more by listening to them?
  13. Welcome to August in the Black Tower. Let us know that you are here. 5 points for signing in and 5 points for answering the question. What way of travelling in the WoT is your favourite? For exampel: Portal stones, T'A'R, the Ways, skimming, travelling through gateways, riding a mule... I think traveling through gateways seems the easiest but I'm fascinated by the Ways. I'm thinking that it was a beautiful place to travell through in the beginning. Hopefully they can cleans the Ways from mashadar. (I know what it says in the deleted Perrin chapter but that isn't canon.)
  14. Travelling game: Illian Tear - 15 July Roll Call: Illian - 10 Dar'Jen - 10 Harldin - 10 Nini - 10 Lavendula - 5 UPDATED
  15. The last one was from the Ice Hotell in Kiruna, Sweden. Illian gets 15 points.
  16. I'm still waiting for Warbreaker. Grrrr.... Niniel is getting angry and are prepared to send her babies to the book company any day now. 😞 (Apparently she is starting to talk in third person when she gets angry too. 😄 ) What is that podcast about? I have started to listen to some WoT YouTubers recently. The Dusty Wheel had a great episode about metaphysics in the WoT and also one about Nakomi. Both made me re-think some things about WoT, which is fun after all these years.
  17. That is too cold in the summer. I’ve read HP like every other year. They are (among others) my comfort books when I’m sick or feeling down. I have only read them as an adult since I was over 20 when the first one came out. I’m still waiting for my book that never arrives, which is so frustrating when I’m in a reading mode. In the meantime I listen to fantasy podcasts and solving sudoku.
  18. @Lavandula Why are you freezing? Is it cold where you live? @Illian Tear Congrats! What kind of job is it? I'm waiting for my book to arrive but it never does. Grrrr! I'm in a reading mood right now and I want my book! I wish I had a good book store in my town where I could buy books. Do you order books or buy them in book stores?
