  1. we are celebrating Thanksgiving in the Gray Ajah, it would be Grayt if you could join us! 😄
  2. hiya, welcome to the site! Generally we are definately up for discussion, as long as behaviour meets our Code of Conduct, so doesn't get personall to other users etc. There is also part of the site that is more social, which is the groups part, where lots of non-Wheel of Time stuff takes place. If you can maybe say exactly what it is that you don't have permissions for that maybe you should, one of the admins will be along to soet it out/ tell you what you need to do to get access?
  3. Thanksgiving celebrations have started in the Gray Ajah...... we'd love to see you all there ?
  4. this is really stupid but I can't find where the bit is to put in sigs in this new place - is it just cos I'm on mobile at the moment ?
  5. ooooo I had loada of notes on this, I think I got rid of them in my recent move though. Grand Mentor: I think Christine (Gray) Mentor: Leala (Blue then White) Me: Gray Mintees: Cindy (Brown)
  6. I wouldn't have the time to do it justice I'm afraid
  7. *hears the sound of people being creative* *walks in the door* *sees an assortment of body parts* errrrrr
  8. I find myself a little bit reluctant to read non-cosmere because I'm thinking 'surely this can't be as good as cosmere'. Is it? That being said I've read Snapshot and really really enjoyed that.
  9. hope everythings ok! I haven't read anything White Sand / Sixth of the Dusk related, but have read all the others and their short stories. I think.
  10. that's awesome! I always assumed you were a WoT reader first blank, lol I think I feel the same Cindy - it was only fairly recently that he became more widely available here
  11. I love mistborn era 2 most. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that Stormlight is what he will be remembered for, and it is brilliant, but it's not as easy to digest lol I like the way era 1 has been built on, and Wax and Wayne have some of my favourite interactions
  12. It's good to see it goes both ways, as it were. Ah Asmodean, do you think they still think 'I wonder what happened to him'
  13. For me it was WoT. Shortly after the Gathering Storm was when I first saw a Sanderson book in the flesh: not in a book shop but in an 24 hour supermarket. I had been looking, as I wanted to read some of his own stuff, so when I saw the Mistborn trilogy I snapped them up and thankfully actual book shops now stock him wohoo! So what was first for you? Did you, like me, only pick up a Sanderson book because he finished WoT? Did you read WoT because you heard your favourite author Sanderson was involved? Was it neither, and you were equally aware of both of them?
  14. hmmmm, I also can't choose just one, but I will be pretty dissapointed if I don't see: - Mat vs Galad and Gawyn, - All the trips through the doorways - Perrin forging an axe -Nynaeve and "will he ride alone" scene -Mat's theory of Boots
  15. I did a double blink at that - I don't think they even read a wikipedia article let alone the books ?
  16. with the dragons and the belt buckle..... that's awesome!
  17. the most important question is do I start my reread now? or wait for more of the early character cast announcements to be made to so can start picturing them in the story as well?
  18. I would love to see Sean Bean as Lan ? or have him as a random villager / towns person at some point...... have him exchange maybe two lines with someone in a tavern...... all set up to be a main character....... then trollocs attack and next we see him he's dead and gone already ?
  19. To be honest, the book covers are not an accurate portrayal of the contents. For instance this scene never happens. Does Perrin use a shield? Where did that head band thing come from? Not sure Mat was waring fancy shirts at this point and Rand certainly wasn't dressed as some sort of noble with a nice clean white shirt thing. I was kinda glad when the UK editions changed cover style as I didn't really like most of this sort of one, despite it making my book shelf look odd. Though I love most of the ebook cover art, accurate or not. I can honestly say I have been influenced by the covers, my own bias about fantasy as a genre, and my tendancy to skim personal descriptions (so it's took me longer to recognise certain characters than it should have done) but I don't think any of the casting decisions are bad ones, and I can't wait to see how they will look in costume. Back to the casting: Marcus with an axe over one shoulder, Barney peaking out from under a hat, Josha working the sword forms. I can completly see Zoe staring down the village council. I think I'm having more trouble with Madeleine because in the head shot they are using she is the only one not looking at the camera, but maybe that's a 'looking for adventure' type shot. I am excited because each time we get information like this the series is actually getting realer to me.
  20. as long as we all agree on the general scope of the tasks, so we don't inadvertently make it 'easier' to get the credit for one compared to another. It might be good if they could come up with their own task: start them thinking of what is most appropriate and really get to know the different ajah's / disciplines. Though of course with people on hand to give ideas / set a task if they need help.
  21. awww, cute kitties no furries at the moment I'm afraid - they lived short yet happy lives stuffed as full of sunflower seeds as they could be
