  1. Damn you all, Arwen did no such thing! Hollywood decided it'd look cooler if she did, I suppose, and didn't want to introduce that white prince guy, Glorfindel or Fingolfin or soemthing, since that's his only appearance in the books. In J R R Tolkien's book, the Lord of the Rings, Arwen does NOT save Frodo from all nine Nazgul. An elven prince does. I can't quite remember his name.
  2. *laughs* Do we really need samples? We've been through, what 3,000 pages of A Song of Ice and Fire? I think we've got an idea of what it's like by now... Why not wait ages for the book, instead of waiting ages for sample chapters? Heheh.
  3. One of my favourites is in Knife of Dreams... *SPOILER!!!!!* ...when the Trollocs attack the mansion Rand is in, and, for the first time in the series, Lews Therin Telamon takes complete control of saidin from Rand, and shows the Asha'man and Aes Sedai, the Trollocs and everyone else, what channelling is really about! "My hands! I need to raise my hands!" Brilliant. I love that bit. *END SPOILER*
  4. I'm trying so hard not to look at these sample chapters.... must.... resist!
  5. I'm surprised I haven't seen Pug/Milamber, Tomas, or Macros from the Riftwar Saga mentioned anywhere in this topic. To me, they were all incredibly powerful, maybe more so than any other characters I've come across in fantasy.
  6. I think he looks quite evil. The first name that came to my mind on seeing the first one was Padan Fain, back when he was the Dark One's slave.

    There was already another opening in the jug?
  8. IfI'm not mistaken, one side of the Hound's face is hideously burned. Instant giveaway. I don't remember reading anything like that when they went to the Quiet Isle. I think the head priest being Rhaegar is more likely than him being the Hound.

    A Riddle

    Heh, how to jog your memory? I'm not sure about this one, but I heard there are only three words in the english language containing the letters "gry". The first two are hungry and angry, and apparently the third is quite a common word. I don't know what it is. Do any of you?
  10. Tel Janin Aellinsar’s lip curled as the squad leader bowed before him, and at the look on the man’s face. Surprise was clear, it was obviously a shock that the honourable king of Shienar was sworn to the Shadow. If only he knew. But Darkfriends were cautious people, any doubts in the al’Kar man’s mind were dispelled when a Myrddraal put a foot to the back of his knee. “One such as you,†it hissed at him. “Would do well to kneel in the presence of one such as he. The Chosen are not to be taken lightly.†The soldier’s eyes bulged, but he kept them trained on Sammael’s f
  11. If it was me and I was just reading Clash of Kings now, yes, I would avoid this thread like the plague. THE PLAGUE! I don't think the horn Jon found being the Horn of Winter is too easy... as I remember it, he found it around the time they first went to the Fist of the First Men. Actually, my details of all this north stuff are pretty hazy, but i don't think there was any mention of Mance looking for this horn for a long time after that. I don't even remember how Jon ended up climbing that moutain and going off with the Halfhand and the others ended up defending the Fist against the wights
  12. New topics then? Ben Stark - Coldhands? The horn Jon found with all the Dragonglass down in that hole that Ghost led him to (...wait, is that his Direwolf's name? I can't remember... oh the shame) - is that the Horn of Winter or whatever it was called, the one Mance Rayder was searching for, the one that could bring down the Wall? Any possible connection between this horn and the one Euron Crow's Eye acquired, the one capable of controlling dragons? By the way, that horn was so sinister.... it charred the lungs of the man that blew it! Blisters around his mouth afterwards, died lat
  13. I've always liked Tyrion, Jon, Dany, Robb, and Arya. Always disliked Sansa, Catelyn, Cersei, Tywin. Now like Jaime, Davos, and Damphair. Anyone else like Aeron Damphair? I think he's cool. There's a lot to him, I think, even with the little we've seen. Tywin's death made me howl with laughter. That reminds me, I don't like Littlefinger. Too devious. Too clever for my liking. I've always wondered... Syrio Forel, a Bravoosi (right?) was training Arya. Meryn Trant came, and Arya ran. Syrio stayed to fight him, but apparently didn't have a hope of winning. We never see Syrio again, and t
  14. Sammael and Rahvin strode into the room in the World of Dreams side by side, chatting amiably, at ease. It was a cool, calculated move, discussed and decided beforehand, designed to instantly show the others their alliance, simultaneously deterring others from attacking either of them, and setting them on edge. Chosen were never this informal in their dealings. “Sorry I’m late,†Sammael said. Tel Janin was sure he detected some pause, some change in the atmosphere of the room, when he and Rahvin were seen. Seasoned schemers as they were, however, the Chosen hid it well. Be’lal
