  1. I’m unaware of Robert Jordan ever specifying a cast list for his novels. That usually means it didn’t happen.
  2. They teased a big announcement coming this week. Any guesses what it might be? I’m hoping for set pictures myself.
  3. We are working on getting it back online.
  4. Go check out the Clubs section of the site. There are plenty of Aes Sedai there.
  5. Or everyone involved in making these read lots of Joseph Campbell in college.
  6. Questions need to be posted on Twitter, not here. Tag the @Wotwritersroom account so it’ll be seen. Let’s use this thread to brainstorm and speculate today, then discuss the actual Q&A tomorrow after it happens.
  7. I recall a mention of a plague that occurred when Nynaeve had just started training as a Wisdom. That might account for some of these missing families.
  8. Aisling Noon is a Green sister who used to be a Tinker. When Tinkers realize they have a girl who can channel, they head straight to Tar Valon with her. I don’t recall what they do with young men who can channel.
  9. Try that again without all the swearing. You can make your point without it. I believe in you.
  10. I always assumed that guy was on the run from the law and thought the Two Rivers was a good place to lay low until he thought he was safe.
  11. You are probably right. You can drop it without loosing too much of the important parts of the story.
  12. Here’s everything we know about the Oathrod and agelessness. http://www.steelypips.org/wotfaq/2_nondark/2.3_one-power/2.3.03_oath-rod.html
  13. This hasn’t been updated in awhile, but it’s still accurate. http://www.steelypips.org/wotfaq/3_sources/3.12_future-earth.html
  14. Women who have been stilled don’t stick around the Tower and Aes Sedai avoid them as much possible. Stilling is a subject they are deeply uncomfortable with. Typically it takes time for the change to happen, but Siuan and Leane lost their ability under such traumatic circumstances that it happened faster than usual. By the time most stilled women change, they’ve already fled the Tower like Setalle Anan did.
  15. Right, after Siuan is stilled she looks young, not ageless. Her face actually changes and people don’t recognize her anymore.
  16. Moiraine is in her 40s. And she might not look exactly how you pictured, but you haven’t seen her in makeup and costume yet.
  17. It’s going around today that Rosamund Pike has potentially been cast as Moiraine. I’m down with this. How about you?
  18. Unfettered III, the fantasy anthology from Grim Oak Press, is now available for purchase. The book features stories from some of today's top names in fantasy literature including Terry Brooks, Lev Grossman, Delilah S. Dawson, Seanan McGuire, Naomi Novik, and Tad Williams. It also, very notably, includes a new "deleted novella" from Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson, as well as a short story from Dragonmount founder Jason Denzel. A Fire Within the Ways is the name of the deleted sequence of chapters that was originally written for A Memory of Light. It's a non-canon story that features Perrin within the Ways. Here's a portion of what Brandon had to say about it: Brandon's blog post about the story. You can read its opening portion for free on Tor.com, and join a discussion on our forums. In addition to the Wheel of Time story, Unfettered III includes a short story from Dragonmount founder Jason Denzel entitled, "The Stone Golem of Qual'Jom." From Jason: You can read more about that story on Jason's website. Unfettered III is currently available in hardcover and ebook. An audiobook edition is coming soon. The publisher reported that they've had some issues with Amazon, and are working to get the book available there. But in the meantime you can get the ebook edition from other vendors such Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
  19. Our friends at Grim Oak Press announced today that their upcoming short story anthology, Unfettered III, will contain an unreleased deleted chapter from A Memory of Light, the final book in The Wheel of Time series. The chapter will follow Perrin as he makes his way through the Ways. There's about 20,000 words of content, which is about the length of two or three hefty WoT-sized chapters. The content was written by Brandon Sanderson during his process of creating AMOL. It was deleted by Harriet as part of the editorial process, but will now be released with everyone's blessing. Although fun to read, Brandon informs us that these scenes are not considered canon. The original Unfettered anthology, released in 2013, contained "River of Souls", a series of short scenes featuring Bao the Wyld as he attempted to discover the location of a legendary sa'angreal. In addition to featuring a Wheel of Time story, Unfettered III will also feature an original short story from Dragonmount founder Jason Denzel. Here's how Jason described the story: "The Stone Golem of Qual’Jom” is about a lonely, blind creature made entirely of stone who was brought to life by a sorcerer in order to be his assistant. When the master leaves his cavernous lair to go on a long journey, the golem is charged with defending the dwelling from invaders. But during his master’s extended absence, the golem begins to question his nature, and the nature of the world around him. Touching on themes of loneliness and non-duality, and filled with action, “Stone Golem” is my earliest, and one of my most beloved, written stories." Unfettered III will be released in hardcover and ebook formats on March 19, 2019. It will feature stories from 27 fantasy authors taking place in an abundance of beloved fantasy worlds including the Dune universe. There are 250 early Advance copies available, as well as signed copies, which will contain signatures from all contributing authors, including Brandon Sanderson and Jason Denzel. Finally, proceeds from sales of this anthology will go to a good cause. They will be used to help provide health insurance for science fiction and fantasy writers who need such assistance. We hope you'll join us in checking out these amazing stories. For more information, including links to pre-order the book, visit the Grim Oak Press website. Read Brandon Sanderson's announcement on his website.
  20. There are actually a few public memorials in Charleston already. There is a display about his life in the library at the Citadel, the College of Charleston has his papers and the hospital where he was treated (can't recall the name right now) has a tree named "Avendesora" in it's memorial garden.
  21. Every design they released prior to Jordan's death was personally approved by him. Everything since then has been approved by his estate, which means Harriet. I've purchased several of their pieces over the years, both for my own use and as gifts, and have always been very pleased with the craftsmanship and quality. I tend to buy in person, not online, so I can't speak to the ordering experience. But all the Badali folks are super nice and very helpful.
