  1. WARRIOR OF THE ALTAII, a stand-alone fantasy novel by Robert Jordan, is now available. The novel is is published by Tor Books, the same publisher of Jordan’s U.S. Wheel of Time books. The book is set in a unique fantasy world that is unrelated to the WoT universe except for some coincidental and thematic similarities. The book was originally announced in January 2019. Here’s the official plot description: Warrior of the Altaii was originally written in 1977 by a then-unpublished Robert Jordan. It went through an unusual process of being acq
  2. Amazon Prime released a new video for #WoTWednesday, their monthly scheduled day to release content related to the upcoming WoT TV show. Here's a full transcript of the video: Speculation has already begun as to who the other unnamed actors in the video are, and who they might be playing. We'll have more speculation and info soon, but in the meantime, join the conversation on our forums or social media or the comments below.
  3. I recently wrote about the 5 Things to Expect from the Wheel of Time TV show, and one of those “things” was expanded roles for minor characters from the books. We’re going to lean into that idea a bit further here and explore which characters I anticipate will seemingly be more important on TV than they were in Robert Jordan’s books. First, the same disclaimer from last time: although I’ve been in touch with some folks at Amazon and from the production, I have no official association with the show. In the early 2010’s I was a consultant to the producers who were seeking to adapt Th
  4. Amazon announced today, via the official Wheel of Time TV show twitter account, as part of their monthly #WoTWednesday, that actor Daniel Henney has been cast in the role of Lan Mandragoran. Here’s the provided press release: For those of you fans wondering, Daniel turns 40 years old in a few months, making him right within the proper age range for the character. We’ve long speculated that Rafe Judkins, the showrunner, and Kelly Valentine Hendry, the casting director, and their teams would seek out well-established actors for the roles of Moiraine (played by
  5. I think it's safe to say that the Cosmere literally was born from the WoTverse at the moment the Creator imprisioned the Dark One. Or maybe it was the moment Asmodean rounded the corner of the palace in Caemlyn and stammered, "You? No!"
  6. Club Leader found! Welcome, @Ark1002! Locking this topic.
  7. Everyone please welcome @Ark1002, the new Club Leader for the Cosmere Club. I'll let him introduce himself, but he's a long-time WoT and Sander-fan, and he's graciously offered to run this club, facilitate some discussion and help all of us enjoy Brandon's magnum opus. Please give him a warm welcome and dive into the stuff he's got ready for you. Jason

  9. Brandon Sanderson responded to some fans' concerns on reddit about the adaptation to the Wheel of Time TV show. Although the majority of fan reactions over the past week to the big casting announcement have been positive, some people have had concerns with the actors not looking like how they would expect. Brandon addressed these concerns by saying: He continued with: Filming of the WoT TV show will begin in September. Although we don't know the exact start date or production schedule, we know that the announced actors are either cur

  11. Hello, fellow writers! I've had a brave volunteer come forth to lead our intrepid club to glory. Please welcome @Arie as our new Club leader. She'll keep you wild hoards in line and also attempt to bring civility to these desolate wastes by facilitating some interesting and (hopefully) useful conversation. Please welcome her, and give her misery a friendly hello. -Jason
  12. Sony and Amazon announced today, through the official Wheel of Time Twitter account, the casting of the show's main characters. The "Big 5" Two Rivers characters. Madeleine Madden as Egwene al’Vere Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon Zoë Robins as Nynaeve al'Meara Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor Here are their official bios, as provided by Amazon: Josha Stradowski Josha Stradowski started acting as a kid in musicals like The Sound of Music and Ciske de Rat, th
  13. For 21 years Dragonmount has provided what I think is top-notch WoT content. (That's more than half my life!) The vast majority of it has been self-funded, or done with the assistance of ad revenue, online store sales, or (on occasion), member donations. In addition, a large portion of my earnings from my own book sales have also gone to fund this grand enterprise. (I'm happy to do it!) But with the Wheel of Time TV show coming soon, along with a major boom of new fans, my volunteer staff and I have stepped up our game in order to be ready for the challenge. Here's a r
  14. Answers: It’s on my To-Do list to get the episodes onto the main site. (Well, technically, they are already uploaded and ready. But I don’t have a landing page for them and I also want to write a little history to go with it.) The new podcast will get a big intro as we get closer to its launch. The new podcast will start recording as we get much closer to the release of the TV show. It might be a year+. Depends on the TV show schedule, right? The vast majority of new podcast episodes will be free. Patreon subscribers will be able to listen to the podcast episod

  16. Anybody have ideas for what we could do on a monthly basis? For example, maybe once a month we could share a chapter from a WIP. Or a synopsis. Or whatever? What would be useful for all of you?

  18. I agree with @Mashiara Sedai! At some point, you just need to dive into the actual writing of the book. You have a neat structure and overall world. Now it's time to figure out who Derick is, what he wants, what's stopping him, and what he's going to do to try and overcome.
  19. Hi everyone, Welcome to the next iteration of Dragonmount! The core team of admins and I have been meeting and working for several months to bring you a new set of community features. We've also archived most of the older, outdated forums that were just collecting dust and making the community feel scattered. The Internet has a changed a lot since we opened in 1998, and it continues to evolve. Much of the Wheel of Time fandom lives on social media now, so we're adapting with the times. Here's a breakdown of what we've added and changed: Clubs have been a
  20. The BT has been removed as a club for now. It’s inactive because there’s no leader. Same with the Band. We’ll bring them back at a later date.
  21. Hi. You guys can work with Elgee (and Verb, who is the admin overseeing all Clubs) on what you want to do, but for this Club specifically, I am OK with creating other, hidden private clubs for the Ajah that want them. You would then join that club by invitation only and have forums that only members could see. But in general, we've found that spreading out across too many forums ends up diluting the community and conversation. If you are all on the same forum, it fosters more cross-talk and engagement.

  24. Hi everyone, The original 4th Age podcast ran for well over 100 episodes. The DM staff is in the process of organizing those and making them available for download. We have a lot on our plate right now, but plan to make them available in the coming weeks. Also, keep an eye out for a forthcoming announcement about the rebirth of the show....
