  1. Lets be realistic, what happens when the DR just stops playing. If he's randomly chosen, chances are he/she is probably not going to be super into it, Especially since so many will try to influence their character, ragequitting will ensue. Then everyone just rerolls characters untill they get their chaneller >_> So you either let all the people be powerful or you don't, no one wants to play a game as a poor disabled farmer. No, you'd need to implement a high-level plan that stretches across 5 or 6 ages. When the first age comes again you might play your first character again, etc. The passing of ages is important because its an opportunity to legitimately, occasionally, clear out all existing political and personal alliances; a convenient way to keep the playing environment fresh and competitive without using stats and level progression. :D indeed
  2. I got my first legit feeder in ranked today :D. fed irelia 10 kills in first 15 mins .-. bwt I'M Nicook on League don't play as much anymore .-.
  3. I've got to agree on Eragon being the worst movie of all time .-.
  4. You belong to the White Ajah! The White Ajah is the smallest Ajah, and they are devoted to seeking the truth. They seek answers that can rarely be found in worldly knowledge, and are often great philosophers. Whites are renowned for their serenity and calm heads, and carefully consider every situation with implacable logic. They can often seem cold and emotionless and are said to lack passion altogether, though this need not always be true. This is your result in its entirety: White Ajah: 11 Yellow Ajah: 3 Green Ajah: 3 Brown Ajah: 3 Gray Ajah: 2 Blue Ajah: 2 Red Ajah: 1 figures .-. I've been told I'm pretty white :P wonder which one the red was.... probably the kids question. Thought I'd get a tad more blue though.
  5. I tend to listen to The Dear Hunter (acts I-III) when I read WoT, and sometimes the Age Of Empires 2 soundtrack :D. I normally read with music, that i think has something in common with the series and get a strong association between the two. somehow I associate both of them with the middlish ages and so with WoTs general state of technology. plus they're wandering alot and i think both fit for traveling... dunno

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bookmark You should try these out, they're pretty sick.
  7. Because its a LOT of work, thats why >_> If you're actually still going through with this I'd be glad to help. I'll try my hand at anything, voice, just making the mod work, dunno exactly how skyrim mods work (on the non user end)/what limitations are, but if this is still going down ill do some research.
  8. This could be an interesting idea, I'm also a compsci major :D, if anyone is working on something I may be a be to contribute some time, message me or something xD. Although no promises, I maxed my courseload... But I am skeptical of the whole key characters are players, especially when they are so important. I imaging each age would last a while, so your asking someone to devote a lot of time, and if that one player fucks up/is 5 years old/Brazilian (it's a joke, if you play LoL you know .-.) people will rage hard. I've always been a fan of the system Star Sonata uses, and parts of it could work for a WoT universe. The ages could still be ended with a massive battle, but the main conflicts will be between player controlled factions (like the wheel of time nations). I prefer to stay away from cannon, and just keep the mechanics of WoT. That way players get much more freedom. After each "last battle" the world is reset, we can even change the map, maybe depending on the outcome of the "last battle", like I said I'm not trying to mirror the books here, but simply preserve the mechanics and feel of the books. Would present some fun problems, and I think it could be playable. The other question is how combat works, which i have not settled on. The way i like to look at combat though it may be oversimplified, is a scale from turnbased rpg, to fps. Also, one development i noticed in Star Sonata, was that since faction carried over from age to age alliances and the ultra powerful were kept in charge for too long, which would ruin the fun for noobs (until they grinded to the top). So i proposed everything gets scratched on new age creation, not sure about charnames, but I would atleast liek foction/country names to be changed/refounded. FOR SERIOUS RPG FANS: You're probably like... fuck that i want to redo randland cannon D:< rage rage rage. or not. but if you are, the nice thing the the cannon version is just a special case, so there could be a cannon server for exactly that purpose. Sorry if anythings unclear, point to something for clarification/ ill look over it later with a clear mind :P
  9. Well I mean last I checked all the women were not Taraboners =P. Kind of makes you wonder how they're going to make Taraboners and Domani women even more scandalous xD.
  10. If it's a movie based game.... ugh. Dunno about you guys but I have yet to play a movie based game that wasn't shit.
  11. Got to say... Even when I only think of books. Shadow brings LotR to mind much more than WoT.
  12. :'( I hope it's at least a slightly open world deal, a la Mass Effect :D
  13. Dragons and Shadow are mentioned in many places... I mean when someone says the shadow i think LotR not Wot =P.
  14. Just curious, does Moiraine's portrayal (especially the dress) make anyone else strangely angry...
  15. Sorry, but you are wrong here. It is said numerous times taht the warder bond increases reactions, speed and physical ability (even to the point where an old warder can maintain the physique of a young man). The first example that springs top mind is Gareth Bryne, just after being bonded by Siuan and while "raiding" the Tower to "rescue" Egwene, saves Siuan from the Bloodknife. Pages 647-648 Hardback TGS: "Bryne moved without thought. Three things in him mixed: years of training with the sword, a lifetime of practiced battlefield reflexes and a new bond-enhanced awareness" - the awareness indicates an increase in reflex/reaction times. Earlier in the book, just after being bonded, Bryne states "I could run a thousand leagues and never want for breath. I could stand against a hundred foes at once and laugh at them all." She rolled her eyes....all he could think about was how much better he might have become at swordplay!" awareness does not indicate increase in reaction time... It simply means he's also aware of feelings coming from Siuan. I mean it specifically ties his reflexes to to his lifetime on the battlefield, so your quote basically shoots that whole "band = better reflexes" thing in the foot. As for the second quote all that's saying is more endurance (running further and fighting more people), which we've already established.
  16. Come on, Compulsion? Graendal is basically a big ol' powerful pimp or dominatrix using the power for her own pleasures. And I think it was Lanfear who controlled the bird with the power? Or was viewing through the birds eyes. Something like that. No wait, that was Graendal doing that in ToM. Yeah. Sort of like a videogame. Anyway. Power. There are tons of things done through the power that could not ever be done with Technology. psshhhh, like what? =P
  17. I also take issue with Blizzard's pricing, I mean come on, SC2 shouldn't still be 50 bucks >_>
  18. even if he is the best swordmaster, Mat isn't a swordsman.
  19. Also, stupid people won't use Technology OR the Source as well as smarter people... And yeah, if thats really the question you wanted to ask, the poll doesn't really get that across =P
  20. Ok, so I've heard it said many times that Lan is definitely the best fighter (non one power). Just wondering where this comes from, did I miss something, or are people just drawing random conclusions =P
  21. eh, I feel like that hardly makes a difference (since only a small percentage of people are chanellers).
  22. It was either a side effect of the bonding or Logain's just that good a kisser. Definitely the latter. obviously. And as for aes sedai bonds. Its obvious they sometimes use a compulsion like bond. Remember after Alanna bonded Rand another aes sedai asked why she hadn't used the bond that makes males obey?
