    Black Tower Roll Call - October 2018

    In before the thread is locked and eager to see any scenes that don't deviate from the book. My experience in watching shows made from books is that there will be few. Perhaps the Golden Crane will fly for Tarmon Gai'don without much turbulence, though.
  2. Here we are with a new month, and in my country, we celebrate a holiday of gratitude this month, whereas our good neighbors celebrated the same holiday last month. Since thanksgiving is a hot topic on my continent this time of year, I thought a good question might be, "What are you thankful for?" Right now, I am most thankful for my health.

    Black Tower Roll Call: September 2018

    Here! Dungeons and Dragons. I got a bit of a fix for it in the Blue Ajah this past winter, and it looked like there might be more, but alas, I think I got teased. I haven't played canasta in ages! I haven't played cards at all in forever. I would be down for some canasta, although I'd need quite a refresher.

    That's awesome! When one's not around to reach that top shelf for you, the other one can!

    I'm here! I'm currently reading Bands of Mourning, my first time through it, although I have read Alloy of Law twice now.

    Thanks, Tress! I DO feel like destroying some evil today, so I ordered the shirt.

    Gentled Ben here, and I like camping the best as far as summer pastimes, but swimming is close.

    Oh, definitely! It looks wolf-like, but it's not a wolf or a dog. I don't know what that is, and apparently, they don't either. I wonder if this is how theses legends get started? A shepherd in the Carpathians kills some sort of weird thing that was eating his sheep, and within a generation, you have tales of werewolves running rampant in Romania or something.

    My first thought looking at it was werewolf! Glad to see that option made the article.

    [GotAK] Great Mythical Beasts

    It's my personal thought that it is evidence for the existence of Atlantis, that the idea of a dragon came from Atlantis. That, or the Biblical dragon, Lucifer, has visited and revealed himself a time or two to ancient peoples in various locales. But why would they think of the same thing? Why would they think of dragons or sea serpents that live in a lake? Yes to both.

    Is the chupacabra cross-cultural? I know that Bigfoot is (Sasquatch, Yeti).
