  1. whether this encyclopedia would be part of this series? I would guess it would be. I'm assuming that by "in universe" threadnecromancer meant the fact that the BWB was written with deliberate inaccuracies, as though written by Third Age scholars who don't have complete or accurate information on a lot of topics. And I'm assuming that the encyclopedia will not be a similar case.
  2. The last comment I remember seeing was "definitely before next JordanCon".
  3. I love her Asmodean art so much! Besides the ones showcased here, some of my favourites are this one (in which Asmodean demonstrates why he's called the inadvertently adorable Forsaken by some) and this one.
  4. I always that Michelle was the female form of Mitchell, which is related to Michael but then there's Michaela for the females there :P There is also Michel. (And loads more, I'm sure. But Michel looks to me the closest masculine equivalent of Michelle.)
  5. That sounds odd. Is there a reason behind this, do you know?
  6. There are 187 888 lakes in Finland larger than 500 square metres.
  7. The Slovene language has a dual form in addition to singular and plural forms.
  8. I'm kind of nervously looking towards having to ask my family to call me Aaron instead of my birth name, Aino. Didn't go over so well when I brought the subject up with my sister -- she did the whole classic "you'll always be a sister to me" thing, adding that she'd "maybe learn to use a new name in 10 years or so" which is obviously very hyperbolic but I think she just genuinely didn't realise I was being serious. I try to be careful to call people by their preferred name, but I'm also a very affectionate person and sometimes that manifests in excessive use of nicknames... So yeah, consid
  9. Okay, I'm not a mod but this is kind of getting off the original topic and there are other threads on the Three Oaths, for example here. So if I could direct you gentlemen, ladies, and others in that direction.
  10. What they mean is Tamra isn't stating the thing as something she believes. She's not saying "Gitara died without speaking." She's saying "you two must tell everyone that Gitara died without speaking." Tamra isn't lying, she's ordering others to do so.
  11. Thank you, sir! ^_^ I'm starting a WoT reread, too, in June with a bunch of other people on Tumblr. Should be fun!
  12. Hiiii Cindy! Thank you~! And that sounds delicious -- very fruity! I bet it does work better than chocolate on a warm day. And I quite agree there. Why be lucid when you can be a kitty. =^-^=
  13. Oh, that Second Sons trilogy looks interesting, too. Adding to my endless list of things to read...
  14. Hey Senexx! I don't know much about Australia, except that Tumblr seems convinced that it's full of deadly creatures. Is this true? And I do recommend Malazan and/or Coldfire if you're ever looking for new things to read and enjoy fantasy! Coldfire is three books (obviously, being a trilogy, duh) and the main series in Malazan is 10 books, but there are... oh, almost as many books' worth of companion novels, already. Some by another author, Ian C. Esslemont, who co-created the world with Erikson. Good stuff.
  15. Ohh heyyy Blank! *noms cookie* Thankies! Would I be guessing anywhere near right if I ventured that Malazan or Coldfire are the ones you're not familiar with? Although a fair few people around DM seem to have read Malazan, too; I'm positively surprised. For such a massive, relatively successful series, the people who have read it are usually few and far between outside the series' own fan communities. Also, I've been wondering about your forum name, is there a story behind it? Because well... "blank" looks like you couldn't come up with one and decided to roll with it. :D But it's also
  16. *looks around* Greetings, Brown Ajah! I'm seeing some familiar faces & felines here! *throws a ball of yarn for the kitty* As for the less familiar ones, I'm NT. I read books. I also write books... or... things that will hopefully turn into books sometime in the future. I noticed you had some delicious things in the first pages of the thread. This looks like a great place! And hmm... to pick up the topic that was going on some time before I got here, my top 5 books would look something like this: 1. 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne 2. The Count of Monte Cris
  17. ...Mostly slash? I'm kind of curious now, which sites are you referring to? Because that's certainly not the case at fanfiction.net, which has the biggest fic base that I've been able to find and yes, I have been actively looking over the years. I'm kind of getting a sensationalist vibe off your statement here... And in your second paragraph, what you're referring to is a phenomenon called "alternate universe" and there's a lot of it going on in just about every fandom. "What if Harry had been sorted into Slytherin?" "What if the Dragon had been Reborn a woman?" "What if Tony Stark and Lok
  18. For me it's offering single Baltic ladies. Which... might be a reasonably good shot were I interested in dating anything at all. x)
  19. Amico was the stilled one. And whether Joiya was lying about that plan (that's what you're getting at, am I right?) is irrelevant. I was merely pointing out that, assuming such a plan existed, it would have been perfectly viable without any resemblance between Rand and Taim, and that the scene referred does not in fact imply any such resemblance. Which in itself is a rather random topic, buuut mb brought it up earlier, so.
  20. This part? That's the Black sister Joiya speaking. Nothing in this indicates a similarity between Rand and Taim, in a physical sense or the sense Barid suggested. At this point, yeah, some people would know Rand's face, but if Rand were to vanish (he was going off to the Waste next, although nobody knows it yet I suppose) and Taim were to go around calling himself Rand al'Thor -- or better yet, have Aes Sedai calling him Rand al'Thor -- well, people will believe what they're told if it's convincing enough. It would have been very easy for them to paint Rand's name black without an
  21. I had no idea how to read most of the pronunciation "guidelines" in the glossary when I first read the books and was trying to figure that stuff out. They make a bit more sense now that I can sort of, maybe, imagine how an English-speaker would read them, but personally, give me phonetic transcription any day over moor-GAYZ etc.
  22. ...Well, actually... :D I always read it as "time", because that's the Finnish pronunciation.
