  1. @Big_Boppa: I just wanted to let you know that in addition to Jhirrad's offer to ask your question if you feel disinclined to do so for public speaking reason, at least two members of The 4th Age podcast will be attending the midnight release event in Provo. We are planning on doing a live broadcast from the release party as part of a restructuring of the show. If you would like, you can email us at podcast@dragonmount.com, and I will make sure that it is my first question to Brandon, Harriett, or whatever member of Team Jordan you like. @everyone else reading this: As I just stated, some members of The 4th Age are going to be on hand at multiple signing venues. If you have questions you would like asked, email us at the above address with your question and what name you would like the question asked under (Such as Jim from Minneapolis, or if you are a bit more eccentric Jymm al'Miniapol). We will do our best to make certain we get in as many of these questions as we can in the time we are allowed. All I ask in making this offer on behalf of The 4th Age is that we keep all questions civil and family friendly. We will be posting soon with more details on the January 8th live show; and I certainly look forward to meeting as many fellow fans as I can in the next few weeks. Until then, on behalf of myself and everyone at The 4th Age: Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  2. Hello all- @Sara V: I think the reason Mat is usually depicted in a green coat is in the text itself. I for a long time have tried to find it again, but I vaguely recall a section of one book, where it talks about Mat wearing a nice, longer green coat with a high Andoran collar. Seeing that it is one of the few times you see his clothing mentioned that is how he gets depicted. I'm pretty sure if it did happen (and my memory isn't playing tricks on me again) the reference comes before Mat and Queen Tylin become involved, because I kept wondering to myself how the high Andoran collar worked with all the lace she kept him in. Personally I've always seen the chest of the coat in my mind looking something like this: http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/LargeImage.aspx?image=/lotfinderimages/D53366/a_group_of_household_and_civil_service_dress_uniforms_including_a_lord_d5336674h.jpg with the overall length being something like a gentleman's 19th Century tailcoat in this style: http://www.milanoo.com/Handsome-Dark-Green-Jazz-Cloth-Double-breasted-Mens-Tailcoat-p67423.html But that is just me. Incidentally, if anyone knows of the lines of text I almost remember and can point it out, let me know. Suravye ninto manshima taishite,
  3. Hey all- The recent re-re-re-reboot of the Dragonmount systems has played wonky with our ability to upload, which was then further messed with by the attack on the DM server. Having spoke with Spencer our Editor in Chief, and Virginia our Producer recently I can say we will be scrabbling to get as much content uploaded prior to the release party for A Memory of Light. In addition, we hope to have some very special news concerning the release party soon, that we hope will help pull our bacon out of the fire once again with everyone who has been patiently waiting on us these many long years. For myself, Andrew Gelos, and everyone here at The 4th Age: Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  4. Hey all - During our recording session last week, Virginia mentioned that we have been having problems with our FTP. I'm a bit fuzzy on the details but we're hoping to have it corrected soon. Also, we're looking for editing help again. A number of our editors of late have been students, and at some point one's academic schedule must take priority. So, if you'd like to help out with editing, shoot us an email at podcast@dragonmount.com. Thanks.
  5. Quick edit for my last post. The last line before the sign out should read "More is on the way, including a summation..." Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  6. Hey all- Don't take my word on it, but I think there was a tiny Mistborn spoiler. It may have been removed in editing, and I haven't gone back and listened to the show yet, so I can't say either way. If it was in there, it was sort of a significant one from Hero of Ages, fairly late in the book, so I'd not chance it unless you've read all three Mistborn books, or you don't care about spoilers. Additionally your third option is to wait 45 seconds to a minute and resume the show since, if I remember properly, we don't discuss that spoiler for very long (I think 45 seconds is probably very generous). More is one the way, including a summation of the semi-finals and a talk up of the finals and consolations match. Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  7. My favorite scene probably has to be in Chapter 31 "What the Aelfinn Said." Mat's escape from the damane holding pens, and subsequent abduction/proposal is both drastically humorous and richly suspenseful. Action, humor, and romance, what more could you want? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  8. Hello All- As many of you may remember from the forums, I had put gathered many individuals who never received the final copies of the original comic run, and was in contact with Dabel on their behalf, as well as my own. The problem with providing proof of purchase is the length of time that has elapsed since the initial purpose. When the series first came out, my wife (then my girlfriend) purchased the series for me as a birthday gift using her college email account as the mode of communication. That account, along with the electronic receipt was reabsorbed into the ether more than 3 years ago. Many I've spoken with share this sort of problem, where the length of delay has exceeded the reasonable time for storage of purchase documentation. I have tried in numerous email to convey the frustration and dissatisfaction of the customers to those producing the product. In all of my communications I have been nothing but polite and straight forward with the individuals I've contacted. Those of you I've spoken with will know that the results have been less than satisfactory. In August of last year I received the first response from Dabel: Hi Andrew how are you doing. As of right now I have envelopes pre-stamped and labeled. We are just waiting on our copies from Dynamite and once we receive them we can send them out. I hope to have an update within the next couple days. Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience. Les D. A month later, after having received neither comics nor word of their shipping, I wrote another email asking for an update. My response this time was as follows: Hi Andrew. The box of books was just received last week so they will start going out this week. Thanks. Les D. Two weeks later, after again having received neither my product nor word of shipping, I wrote again asking for an update. To this date I have yet to receive a response. When I was fortunate enough to have a Q&A session with Brandon and Harriet for the Cincinnati release of Towers of Midnight I asked Harriet if anything could be done to influence the Dabels to produce our products or compensate us in some way. When Harriet heard my question her face grew (from my point of view) quite serious and she told me that they have people working on it. I've emailed everyone who has contacted me with this information, and figured that it should be shared with the greater fan community as well. I'm not certain if a resolution is anywhere within sight, but there is some hope. At this point I am kicking myself for not purchasing issue 7 when I saw it in a comic shop. I thought at the time "surely if the comic store has it, then my copy won't be far behind." I guess that is just another example of why I should never tempt fate. Personally I could care less about a refund. Even with shipping it will come to less than $10. But I am a collector who can't stand when I can't complete a set, and buying the graphic novel would only slightly mitigate my sense of irritation that my wife's gift has yet to be fully realized. I guess I'll just continue to wait and find out. I hope some of this rant was informational, and apologize if it came across as so much complaining. Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  9. It was an awesome time, and I look forward to the release for AMoL! The live-podcast for the signing is in editing and will make an appearance in a future episode of The 4th Age, so keep your ears open. Suravye ninto manshima taishite,
  10. Hey again guys- On October 15th we completed the last of The Gathering Storm recap episodes. They are going into edit now, and Spencer will post them as he as the most recent releases within the 4th Age forum as a link to an outside source. You will be getting them all in one solid chunk of 13 episodes (no that wasn't planned, it just fell out that way), and we hope you guys enjoy them. From what I understand we are closing in on fixing the podcasting issues here at DM, so hopefully that option will be available in the near future as well. Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
  11. Hello everyone- Just so you know, the interview with Maria and Alan was very nice. We do have some new episodes ready to go as soon as we can get them up, and are working on some really neat stuff. Just hang in there. Suravye ninto manshima taishite.
