  1. For Moghedien, I doubt she expected Nynaeve to be as strong as herself which surprised her. Then she probably was too proud to give up in the fight over the shielding as to not be outdone by a "so-called" (not even) Aes Sedai child that knows nothing.
  2. On the blog it shows it was posted on the 31st and I don't think he would do that.
  3. I am a High School sophomore. I also take Chemistry (one of my favorite classes ever). I enjoy watching sports (especially football) and listening to rock music. I also enjoy reading fantasy and spending time with friends. I want to become a fantasy writer.
  4. The writer of The Name of the Wind,Patrick Rothfuss, did/is doing an author question and answer here on the Illuminator forum for those of you who don't know. I just grabbed the book a few days ago and I love it. It is a great book. If you have some extra money and are looking for a good book you should definitely get it.
  5. Thank you all for your advice. Right now my list is: The Name of the Wind Memory, Sorrow and Thorn Malazan Book of the Fallen The Belgariad Dune The Last Unicorn
  6. Thank you for the response Werthead. I appreciate it. I have heard so many mixed reviews on the Sword of Truth series. A lot who like it and a lot who think it is horrible. I was thinking of adding The Malazan Book of the Fallen but i decided against it.
  7. I have just finished the series A Song of Ice and Fire. Now I am looking for what to read. There are plenty of lists that I have seen for favorite fantasy series, but I don't know exactly what they have read. Obviously someone who never read the Wheel of Time series couldn't put in their list. So I want to ask about a few series which I have seen quite a lot in the lists. If you don't see your favorite series on this but you think it is good then please just put it on. For the record the series which I have read: Wheel of Time A Song of Ice and Fire Chronicles of Narnia Lord of the Rings Space Trilogy (C.S. Lewis) only the first two... Harry Potter ------ The books I have heard a lot about: Belgariad Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn Sword of Truth Dune ------------ If you have read any of these could you post a short review (again, you can do one for the best fantasy series which isn't listed here if you think it deserves one). Just put if you liked it or not and if you would recommend it. Put the positive and negative aspects and maybe a brief overview of what the series is about. I just want to see what I should start reading next and any help from the people here at DM would be much appreciated. Thank you to everyone who helps.
  8. Never heard of Konquerer and I have never used Opera. IE is totally horrible though. Firefox is overrated I think. It is good (better than IE), but is not like the best thing ever. Safari all the way.
  9. Exactly, there is way more to a book than the main storyline. Not everything has a direct relation to the main plot of a series. The Wheel of Time series has one of the most extensive series of subplots. I personally love them all. I admit Elayne's Andor stuff gets kind of boring sometimes, but the other subplots are very interesting. I love Egwene's portion in KoD. It is probably one of my favorite parts of the series. Mat is freaking awesome in the last two books. Perrin getting Faile back is a great part of the series. Just read through them both.
  10. I wonder why Egwene :P. I haven't reread the series at all yet (I just read it for the first time a few months ago and I have so much more to read).
  11. I dont think the books are nearly as slow as a bunch of people claim. I believe the books ahve a great storyline and I really wanted to continue reading the books as soon as I could. I hate to break it to you, but the general setup of fictional novels is most of the book is rising action and then near the end of the book is the climax and then falling action. If you just want action action action and you dont care for all the description and storylines in a fantasy epic I would suggest sticking to movies or something. Sorry if that was a little harsh, but the first 3 books werent slow in my opinion.
  12. Im in, you should make it a little smaller though. I actually played this Mafia game (although not WoT based) at school after Midterms. There were Mafia members, normal people and a police officer. YOu might also think of making some people more than one thing. Like the doctor could be from Illian and a Dragonsworn could be Tieran.
