  1. Not a problem at all @Cass !!!
  2. @Jagen Sedai I have all of them on my phone. Forgot about the search feature! The relevant quotes are above.
  3. LoC chapter 7:" There were reports of strange occurrences in Illian and Cairhien—there might have been others, but those were the ones they saw—villages taken by madness, nightmares walking in daylight, two-headed calves that talked, Shadowspawn appearing out of thin air." LoC chapter 12: "Most of the muted talk seemed to be about the weather. That and tales from elsewhere about strange happenings, two-headed calves talking and men smothered by swarms of flies, all the children in a village disappearing in the middle of the night and people struck dead by something unseen in broad daylight." I think there was another mention in the next book, but it's generally the same thing that was said above.
  4. CotS idea

    Yes, this sounds fantastic. I've been thinking about what group I want my 3rd character to be a part of. I was thinking SC or CotS... It'll be a minute before I do so (waiting to raise Merdyn and Viviane to the 2nd pin and shawl before I add a 3rd to my character portfolio.) This is a great idea, though. I'd love to be apart of it. If not, I can't wait for my Channelers to be able to square off against your army
  5. @Jagen Sedai and @Cass there were one or two throwaway lines about talking/two-headed animals. I can scour the books if you want, I know it was mentioned sometime after book 3... It got brought up 2 or 3 times, IIRC. Usually, it was a main character (I wanna say Nyneave or Elayne was one of them) remarking on the 'common folk' talking about nonsensical rumors.
  6. @The Don have you resurrected your CoS character? I'd love to do a CoS character, but Merd and Viv keep me very, very busy... Once they have attained the second pin and the shawl... Maybe... I digress. It would be amazing to get a CoS character in on the action. I also had an idea of a 'phantom dragon reborn' attacking everyone, bubble of evil to be sure. If not now, it might be a fun scene to pursue in the future, especially for us BTers... What better way to sow confusion and Discord amongst the forces of the Light?
  7. LoC chapter 14, dreams and nightmares @Cass
  8. I'm with my fellow BTers. I've always wanted to take part in some books prompts, even if they're broadly defined or super insignificant. Night at the BT sounds fun. Especially if it happened when everyone was asleep. There were 2 Trollocs in one of our scenes and then a minor bubble of evil in another (a single overgrown weevil), so I wouldn't mind if we used either one of those. It would create a nice scene of panic if everyone was roused in the middle of the night because of something big and scary happening (like in Salidar... Forgot what exactly happened... I just remember the Aes Sedai thought the Forsaken were attacking, but they weren't. So they linked and searched Salidar for the threat in the middle of the night.) Perhaps Merdyn's soup kitchen explodes in the middle of the night and hundreds of overgrown weevils errupt from the smoking wreckage? So not only do the BTers have to deal with that, but most of their food stores are then destroyed. Just an idea. Especially considering Merdyn and Ful have a scene atm where they're buying foodstuffs, so that would just suck for everyone. I know I'd be upset if everything I bought was now engulfed in flames. Other than that, I'm down for anything. I also loved the mention of talking and two-headed farm animals in the books, so if we don't do something as dramatic as an explosion, talking animals would be a fun one too. Especially if they were rude and foul-mouthed lol. But that would just end up being more of a comedic scene, I think. We need more of a threat to keep our characters on edge (other than the last battle) so I would prefer a more violent or frightening scene.
  9. Healing Training ?

    posted. Merdyn isn't trying to overrule anyone btw. he's just overeager right now. as i said in the post, i'd rather skim to the farm and fetch a carriage, or everyone goes back. We can stay in one spot too tho, he'll just close the gateway once it's open if we do that. I really don't mind. @Cass i figured you could jump in at the Farm or if we took the damsels to Town, you could jump in there. Or perhaps coincidentally ride up on us if we stay put :D
  10. A Request for the Seanchan

    Oh how could I forget? I take it back. I must have a soft spot for them because I fell in love with her during her first meeting with Elayne and Nyneave. And her relationship with Bayle Domon was the absolute cutest. Fortune prick me!
  11. A Request for the Seanchan

    @Jagen Sedai The thing about them is that I want to like them so bad lol, I just couldn't bring myself to it while reading the series. I usually feel that way about villains or 'not so morally good guys' though. I would've liked to see more of the actual continent of SC in the books. Reading their chapters in the BWB was great, even if the art wasn't lol. *AMOL spoilers* I'm also still very upset we did not see the meeting between Tuon and Artur. I'm sure if anyone could talk sense into that woman (concerning the Suldam/Damane issue) it would be him... I hope. *end spoilers*
  12. A Request for the Seanchan

    I don't mean to sound snooty or snarky about the Seanchan, btw. <_<
  13. A Request for the Seanchan

    I might be interested once Merd and Viv both get to Asha'man and Aes Sedai. For the record, I hate the Seanchan. I find them repugnant. They're not evil, but my feelings for them are comparable to those that I hold for Jane Umbridge of Harry Potter infamy. That being said, RPing as a self-righteous character might be fun... And I do have an incredible love for Asian culture... Consider me interested. I'll look back into creating a SC character after I raise my other 2. I'll message you, @Jagen Sedai, when I start looking into character creation. Maybe you can help me brainstorm a little. I'd think I'd either play Suldam/Damane (I have a thirst for the One Power) or Morat'raken (because Dragons.)
  14. I have a serious problem.

    @BFG wins, IMO. I came here with three suggestions, but even I can't do better than the Time Warp!
  15. Welcome to the Black Tower Oddpositions

    No disrespect meant ^_^; I wish I discovered WoT when I was younger. Instead, my nose was shoved in anything and everything by Anne Rice I could get my hands on. Bisexual Vampires are the best.
