  1. I'm pretty sure this is why they invented the internet. You'd think I'd like the parts with me the best, ya know, as a narcisist. In point of fact though every mention of Joram makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. He was the angriest man ever...and was awesome for it. JD, Loves necroing old threads...and also crazy chicks. And also poker...but still mostly crazy chicks.
  2. I get the feeling that warders do know beforehand about the warder bond being able to compel. It seems that many a warder are picked out of the group that comes to train at the WT (younglings) who I assume are familiar with all aspects of the bond, others probably get a roughly delivered laundry list of disclaimers before the bonding happens, like an Ipod. We really don't know what the Tower teaches about bonding since most of the protagonists (ie. Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve) all bonded warders without ever really being properly taught by the WT in the protocals for doing so. As for the WT's upset over the Black Tower bonding it's members I don't think most people understand the world of Randland that well if they don't see where the Aes Sedai are coming from. Mainly because we see the world through 'Rand tinted glasses'. Basically men who can channel are reviled on a level that would be difficult to translate into something we could relate to. To try though we'll just say they have the same place in society that pedophiles have in our society. And because of their power and the local governments inability to deal with them they become the sole jurisdiction of the White Tower. So essentially the Tower would be like a police force in this instance. So back to the analogy. A group of pedophiles engaging in some of the most depraved behaviour immaginable decide to congragate in a big compound. The police go in to arrest and/or kill these people to make the world a safer place. Instead the police are killed (or I guess captured and forced to live in said compound). What's the response then to that? "Well the cops should've known those pedophiles would capture them, and have absolutely no right to be upset about it. I mean really, what did they think was going to happen?" I don't think so. Not only would every police officer (or Aes Sedai in this case) be completely outraged by this (I'm talking visceral outrage here) but the remainder of society would also hold utter contempt for that being done. As generally speaking I'd say Randland as a society values the WT as we do the police, they're well respected and in fact lauded for what they do except by those of the criminal element who would fear or hate them. So in this case I would say Egwene's outrage here is completely understandable if you understand the general view of the majority of the world to Male Channelers. JD, Yes I still tag my posts.
  3. As for Thom being killed by the fade she does state to the boys her reasons. The main one being that a gleeman getting killed in a street fight in the middle of a small town like Whitebridge would not be forgotten by the time Moiraine, Lan, and Nyn made it into town. That's a pretty logical deduction actually, especially since we've seen how small town folk react to gleeman, and we can't fault her reasoning. So maybe it isn't so much a viewing as Moiraine is smart n' stuff. The comment she makes to the girls I think is just what she said. They were being all dumb and young talking about marrying when Aes Sedai never marry, and she decided to tell them how dumb and young they were. Finally I always assumed when she told Thom he would live if he went with Nyn and Elayne it was because that was one of her questions she asked the Finn. "Will Thomdril Marrilin die if he goes to Tanchico?" She seemed to think it was of the utmost importance to get Thom away from Rand, believing Rand's stalling in Tear was a result of Thom's interference. So if she believed passionately (which we know she did) that Rand had to move and that she must be his only advisor (Thom was getting in her kool-aid after all) perhaps that was worth one of her questions. So if the answer from the Finns was no, he won't die, she would be able to tell Thom with certainty that he would live. If memory serves she went to him the day after going into the ter'angreal, which is why I always assumed such was the case. Min having a viewing makes less sense because why would Moiraine be able to state with Aes Sedai certainty that Thom will live through Tanchico based on Min's foretelling of their marriage, and then be unsure if she herself would live through her trial with the finn's later using the exact same logic. It seems incompatible with her belief in Min's visions. Also Min references the 'one viewing' she hasn't told Rand in a CoS, talking about how bleak he would be to find out that he would almost surely lose the last battle without a woman who was dead and gone. We can deduce she meant Moiraine because it comes on the heels of her thinking Caroline was Moiraine, and then later (in that same segment of storyline) she mentions her one failed viewing (That of Moiraine being at the Last Battle with Rand). JD
  4. Not fighting with the Seanchan. rather two seperate battles taking place after Tarmon. One, the Seanchan v. the rest of Randland. and a second confrontation between what's left of the Aes Sedai and what's left of the Black Tower. Hence the World not being done with battles. The reason they're not fighting now is because of chaos within the Aes Sedai, and a desire not to start fighting the Asha'man until after Tarmon, hence the truces (which are both stopgap agreements until after the Great Battle). Almost every PoV from Aes Sedai on the Black Tower contains loathing and a desire to whipe them out. The second the DO is taken from the page as a possible enemy the Aes Sedai and Asha'men seperate and begin to face off. It simply seems too much of a stretch to expect these two groups of people to co-exist peacefully after so much animosity for so long. The Seanchan will be similar, once Tarmon is over, the stopgap truce Rand will have negotiated uniting the East and the North with the West and the South will be done, and all hell shall break loose. JD
  5. It says the servants are balanced by the guardians, not opposed by them. The lion sword, the dedicated spear, she who sees beyond. Three on the boat, and he who is dead yet lives. The great battle done, but the world not done with battle. The land divided by the return, and the guardians balance the servants. The future teeters on the edge of a blade." It says Elayne, Avi, and Min are alive as of Tarmon and that Rand is dead, but still lives (somehow). Tarmon is over, but the worlds still got some stuff to resolve. That's why I assume Logain is the man to step into Rand's shoe's as the leader of the Coalition he's built, hence the glory, while Rand is off not being dead but not really being alive kind of thing. And yes, it does say balance, I just assumed they were still squared off in confrontation due to the context of the foretelling. World not done with battles implies more fighting to come, and then it immediately rattles off two situations where such would be the case. The return devides the land, so the Seanchan have half of the world kind of under their control and you know what? Don't think that really the rest of the nations would be all that happy about it. Also given what we know about 3000 years of accumulated Aes Sedai feelings toward men who can channel and the fact that those girls rarely (if ever) change their mind, I'm guessing they've got a bit of animosity towards those BT boys. That's how I've taken that foretelling. Also I don't think Sanderson will clear either the Seanchan issue up, or the BT/WT war. He said the last book will resolve Tarmon Gai'den, and there will still be issues going forward after that someone may or may not resolve in future books. Unless of course after the DO is bound back the Seanchan can be wrapped up in an epilogue. "Oh by the by we're heading back to our land, dueces everyone." JD
  6. It's more likely that Aginor was simply not good at making gateways, since we know that not all channeling is raw strength, rather it depends on certain peoples abilities with the power. Semirhage is certainly a far better healer than Ishamael, and if ishy tried to heal someone and failed and then Semirhage came in and succeeded would we assume that she's a stronger channeler than the Nae'blis? No, as we already have knowledge that she's a great healer, a fact mentioned in the BWB actually, which seems to follow true in the series. So Aginor can't make a big gateway, Demandred can't (last I checked) create Trollocs and Drakgtar and Gholam's oh my. Aginor can, which I tend to think is pretty impressive. Also I assume the forsaken were listed in the best writer's order. Ishamael. Top billing because he is Nae'blis, even when he's not Nae'blis he's Nae'blis. Aginor Second to appear in the books, along with old Eval Rammen, listed before him probably because he has a more interesting story (he makes shadospawn) or because he's stronger (Sure, all things being equal I'll give you the caveat of strength in this one case) Balthamel (second we see along with Aginor, listed after Aggy because Aginor is stronger and does cooler stuff like making Shadowspawn (see above)) Sammael. Listed next because he was Rand's current challenge, the most interesting Forsaken among those not released into the world in the first book, Or, just because the author had a really neat segway, Most of the other Forsaken were trapped deeply enough to remain untouched and undamaged by time, though it made them a little slower to escape than Aginor and Balthamel. They lacked even scars, except for the one worn by the Chosen called Sammael BWB Rahvin. Because he so liked the segway format from earlier he/she continued Sammael hated political intrigue, but Rahvin much preferred such diplomacy and manipulation to open conflict. Be'lal, segways like a David Letterman show, with less shots at Republicans While Rahvin preferred manipulation, the Forsaken known as Be'lal, the Envious, was a master of it, to the point he was often known as the Netweaver. goes on to talk about Samael and Rhavin and Be'lal surpassing both in their various talents, so it helps that the reader was introduced to those two first...n' stuff. Demandred, listed next because at this point no one really cared about Demandred. When the BWB was created he was fairly ambiguous as to where he was, who he was, and all that so the author kind of threw him in near the end. Sammael is referenced, so it's good Sammael's story came before Demmy's. Asmodean, listed last because he was barely a Forsaken at the point this book was made. He'd already been captured and used by Rand, and to our PoV he was more of a hero than anything else. At the least a likeable character, which is why the BWB goes out of it's way to place him last and mention that Asmo's were the least cruel of any of the Forsaken regimes, because they don't want us to lose our attachment with him. Now I may be way off, but I do think it's much easier to chalk up Forsaken listings to the best way to tell their story. RJ was a master storyteller, and though he didn't exclusively write this book he did have a hand in it. So he probably knew all the forsaken's backstory and simply placed them inside this 'chapter' for the best possible story flow. Even though it's a guide, it's also a book, and can be read cover to cover, making sense and being interesting the entire way through. I could go through the Women's chapter but it's more of the same. Lanfear, because she's central, Greandal, because of the female Forsaken she's had the most POV's and story time (up to that point), Semirhage, because after you mention Graendal the flow of the story naturally rolls to Semi, Graendal heals the mind beyond compare, and Semi is an equally skilled healer of the body. Mesaana next because unlike the previous two she turned to the DO because she was not the best in profession (goodness this author's good at Segways, I should quote this one too but I'm tiredish). And Moghedian last because she was all captured n' broken and we saw her very weak so she was the least impressive as a bad girl at the time. Wouldn't want to cut in right after the frightful Lanfear, throw a browbeaten Moggy in and then have to get the reader to reinvest in being afraid of the evil Semirhage would we? It would be counterproductive to the story.
  7. To say glory greater than most men can even dream of implies something really impressive. She saw the crown around Darlin's head and said "Meh, he'll be a king" I think Logain's stepping over Rand is symbolic of him taking over Rand's various duties one he's 'Dead' (ie. King of the World n' such) Also, I don't think the Tower's will be united at the end of the 14th book. Sanderson has said (I believe) that the story will end with Tar'mon Ninja Gaiden and there was a foretelling that went something like... "the great battle over, but the world not done with battles, the Servents vs. the Gaurdians" etc. etc. Great battle being Tarmon, Servants v. Gaurdians is Aes Sedai v. Asha'man. So I would guess that would be one of the unresolved issues that might never see a written conclusion. JD, Mostly here, though sometimes there.
  8. I was actually talking about you eclipse. Though Roka would also fit the bill. Um, Vanion's funny too, but I mentioned him before right? A bunch of the WT girls are funny... n stuff. JD, Has filled more open boxes than General Mills
  9. I love Barm, but this is Hax we're talking about. He's still got funny. Hax's guide to german girls and his uncensored opinions on fat chicks, not to mention his various works of comedic genius on display throughout the site put Hax in a class all his own. It's slightly below mine of course, but still all his own. *g* JD, Contemplating a top ten series that showcases the funniest of DM. Let's see. I got me. ;D Hax would be two Kat third, um... Cads has to be somewhere, maybe before Kat so she's the first girl on my list. You know chicks, they get jealous n' stuff. ;) I can't decide on Emp or Barm next, Emp had it by a longshot but then he got old and boring. :P Who else makes me laugh, cuz that's all I really care about. Although Barm doesn't make me laugh, but I understand his humour. erm... maybe that one dude from the BT and SG. He's funny. Tenshin's witty, maybe not top ten witty. Paityr cracks me up... hmmmm, problem is no one really has stand alone posts anymore, I'd almost need to post the whole thread so the funny could be in context. hmmmmm, I'll ponder this. Just thinking aloud people. Nothing to see here.
  10. Initially I'd planned on putting this as a third section of my Spymaster's report, ya know, in honour of the BT stalking me for the past three weeks. But since I've only finished the World News section so far and Cads is no longer texting me to keep me arouse...erm, awake, I'll just put this on it's own. That way you can ignore this bit of self indulgence and save up your JD tolerance for my new stuff (ie. Spymaster's column which I should finish sometime tomorrow night) Top Ten JD Posts 10. JD on Myspace Hookers 9. The thread in which I proclaimed my return to DM entitled 'All Hail the King' here on the CoL Board. It was a story for Emp. And yes, that was an actual portrayal of my day back in February. 8. A continuation of my life's tales, including the afformentioned drug using girlfriend Allisha and my cat PJ. 7. Justen's Song. 6. Welcoming the New folk 5. Why won't someone just make me an Org Leader already? I mean who deserves it more than your boy JD? *g* 4. An apology for Barm's terminal unfunnyness 3. JD Meets a Brit Girl 2. Barmhax 1. RP Overlord of DM and master of the emoticon. Yes this is really just a continuation of my overinflated ego of late, and unfortunately the list has to lack my stories (which I enjoy the most), my PMs to Cads (which are actually great in number and fairly amusing on occasion), and a lot of my stories on the 'Chan private boards (which while sometimes humorous are just too damn long for normal consumption). Hence, the list of ten above. JD, Running Re-runs instead of new stuff since October of '08
  11. So here'e my attempt to sum up your intro. Ya know, for those of us with a little less upstairs... *nods towards Empy picking his boogers* You said... "Hi, I'm a random newbie who either picked out a trolloc name or I'm from Jamaica and I'll let you all be the shotcallers on this one since I deserve your every waking bit of attention. I've really just been floating around the room evesdropping on your conversations for some time now but I think I've deemed you worthy enough to have me occasionally grace your boards with my deep insight. The books were okay for me, but once i get past six I really have to force myself to read them, kind of like eating carrots at this point. Anyway if I'm really bored and have nothing better to do I might come hang out and post. Until then dueces ya'll." I think I caught most of the nuances. Anyway Hi, I'm Justen. JD, Big fan of Peanut Butter since 1983
  12. Are you calling me the American version of a Canadian Republican? Because that might just be an insult. And for your information I don't like him because he's not a chick JD, Spymaster
  13. Cads sweetie that's entirely too many points. ;) We've talked about this I believe. Now it's time I punishe... well, we'll talk about this in private. JD, Yeah, that JD
  14. First off I need to make me a country music playlist as a background for this here report. Because that's how the kid does, that's where I'm at in life. Three of the six songs on the heaviest of rotation on the media player lately are country (Stay by Sugarland, Home by Blake Shelton, I'm movin' on by Rascall Flatts (what can I say, it's depressing and I like it)) So I'm going to go make a playlist. Oh and I need to text Cads. Done, and Done. I accidentally broke my earphones as I got up to grab my cell phone by the way, so I had to grab an old pair that only has one working earpiece. Now I only have half the surround sound experience. Bah, Bah I say. ... *composes himself* It's time for the weekly installment of the Spymaster Report, I know normally this is done on Thursday, but it's not like this is some official report or anything. It's just something I write for Emp and Cads and the three random people per week that stumble upon it. At this point it's really more of a homage to the olden days and the CoL than anything real newslike. Aside from that I think I'm going to move it to Tuesday after this, because Tuesday's better for me. *shrugs* No real reason actually, it's just better. *g* Anyway since I skipped the wolfies last week I brought in a drunken wolfie to help me with the news. Isn't that right boy? (Henceforth my assistannt wolfie's words will be written [glow=red,2,300]in glowing letters[/glow] because I saw Barmy and his crew (Jason actually roused himself even, it's like Christmas come early) use it in their little Admin game thing they were playing and thought it was moderately cool) [glow=red,2,300]You're f'n right Judden![/glow] It's Justen actually my drunken canine friend, but that's a good doggie anyway. *throws his wolfie a treat (wolf treats are comprised entirely of solidified vodka (difficult to make a reality but well worth the effort))* World News We'll start in the mythical land of Canadia, as always. You know I'm no expert on Canadia, though I am attempting to learn n' stuff. Yet from all I've read it appears the current Canadian Prime Minister actually scheduled this election himself in an attempt to completely take over the Canadian Govermnent (Barm might have said that actually but when do I listen to Barm anyway? (Right Tenshin?)). Now if this is indeed the case that's awesome. The fact that the President or whatver he wants to call himself can just up and decide one day he's going to hold an election is awesome. Throw that together with cheap drugs and lax prostitution laws (that's what Paityr tells me anyway (I guess he used to cross the border from Alaska every once in a while for some quick eskimo lovin' of the canadian variety (that he had to pay for))) and Canadia's got a great little country there. What do you think doggie? [glow=red,2,300]Canadian prostitutes make great bacon and eggs![/glow] Um, is that a metaphor or something? [glow=red,2,300]Huh? *blinks* Do you have to piss too or is it just me?[/glow] Wrapping up Canadia (in a neat little Canadian bundle smothered in maple syrup (because they put maple syrup on everything)) [glow=red,2,300]It's really good on Canadian hookers![/glow] Ack! Bad boy, that's a very bad boy. *whaps his wolfie with a newspaper* This is a PG 13 report. Plus I don't think you're allowed to comment on my parentheticals (since to be grammatically technical they're not actually a part of my report (or something, not really sure (I'll have to ask Sin Death (He knows quite a bit aboot (That's canadian for about) parenthesis for some reason)))). In other news. Local politics out of Alaska (which is right next to Canadia on the map so I assume they're near each other even though I've never been); (I'm pretty sure that's not an appropriate use of the semi-colon but I don't hear him saying anything about it. Right wolfie? [glow=red,2,300]I thought i couldn't talk about your sissy little parenthesiseseiss?[/glow] Well technically you're inside them right now. [glow=red,2,300]Huh, I though I was inside a massive ball of gay that you try to pass off every week as some sort of relevant weekly steeple here at DM.[/glow] That was a very coherent insult for a drunk puppy. [glow=red,2,300]I'm full of surprises, I even have another one for you if you close your eyes. I heard you like your humour dry, so I've got a nine inch joke for you right here...[/glow] PG 13 wolfie, that includes innuendo's too. [glow=red,2,300]inuen...erm, what? Hey did I just eat glue? I feel funny.[/glow] Well, we could probably get out of this here parenthisis now. Steps____) it seems they had themselves a hearing about Governor Palin's reported abuse of power. I mean if you can't use your authority as a government official to make life miserable for your familial enemies what good is public office anyway? Anyone? I didn't think so. Her running mate John McCain has promised to "Whip his (Barak Obama) ass" at the upcoming election. When asked about this comment Barak simply said he'd keep out of McCain's reach. Further going on to say "About six inches away should be more than enough." Barak's running mate Joseph Biden (when not boring random folk on the street to death (literal death people, nothing figurative about it) called upon McCain and Palin to stop their racist campaigning. Other democrats took it even further, comparing Senator McCain to former Governor George Wallace. McCain simply responded "Hey, if I was Governor Wallace that Obama kid would still be picking my cotton while his wife drove my kids to school. Because I get things done in Washington." By the time McCain was able to further explain what he really meant (after a short nap and an episode of Matlock) he had already lost Virginia. Palin's only response was a vague smile as she went from her car into a building, as she left the building she continued by saying "..." something no one really caught on microphone and then an enigmatic smile, eliminating the vaguery from before. "I don't like vagueness" She was quoted saying on Fox News after Sean Hannity asked her what her favorite color was, she went on "I favor the color blue...though purple is pretty too... Oh, I also like the color of impropriety, it goes great with my favorite pair of shoes" Obama, after finding out about McCain's comments and his increasing lead in Virginia immediatly hopped a plane to the battleground state and gave a speach about what a 'Great guy John McCain is' saying "I'd let him babysit my kids and have his way with my wife if he wanted, I mean he's just that fantastic a man" When spotted outside a local 7-11 reportedly paying a homeless man to vote for McCain Obama broke down and admitted he'd only ran for his party's nomination on a drunken double dog dare from Russ Feingold, and that he had no desire to be the first black president. His quote "Until they make bullet proof glass strong enough to resist the rocket launchers of the various southern militia's I'd really rather not be President." going on to say "Oh by the way, have I mentioned John McCain loves puppies? And I love John McCain, but not in that way...unless it will get you to not vote for me." I think that's enough for the world news don't you wolfie? [glow=red,2,300]I think deviled eggs really make a room smaller about an hour after you eat them.[/glow] That's disgusting. Next up. DM News What time is it people? Well, I'm guessing you're going to start over at the Seanchan board and not explain the reasons behind such. If I'm not mistaken that's where you're at in life, that's how the kid does. You know what? Nope. That's not where I'm going at all. And I'm not explaining why it's not anymore than I explained why it was. We'll start with the Aiel. There's actually nothing new under the sun over there at the Aiel board. They're still discussing scary movies though, so if you enjoy thoughtful discussion about scary movies head on over to the Aiel board and join their monthly thread. Next up the Band of the Red Hand they're taking new applicants for 'Assistant Gambler'. I wasn't aware the Band had a gambling program, and I actually think this is kind of cool (Though they still have too many sticky's). Anyway if you're finding out about this position from this report you're probably not active enough in the Band to get the job :P, but if you're in the band and already knew about the job and are wondering if it's something you should apply for I say go ahead. Because it sounds interesting, and that's what life is all about. Closing date for apps is Wednesday, so you best be off and get to polishing that resume. Don't worry, this Report probably won't be deleted by then (unless the wolfie starts cursing and gets me banned from the site, fortunately he appears to be asleep (passed out) right now) so you can always come back when you're done. To be honest this thread will probably be at the top of the board still, unless the board has a sudden activity spurt. They also did promotions over there, but I think I covered it last week right? I don't know (I could check I guess but I'll not), in any case congrats to Tigara who's the only person on that list I know. Hey the Black Tower is talking about me. ;D aww, it makes the emoticon happy to know that somebody loves me. The Seanchan never fed and watered me properly, a JD is a responsibility for goodness sake. You want your very own JD you have to understand how truly high maintenence we are. Anyway apparantly Roka (Spymaster favorite for a fairly long time) is awarding points to those who get in the good graces of your boy JD. So...here's how it's done. 1. Read my Spymaster Report. Since I'm going to tell you how it's done in this report it's probably the best place to look. 2. Post thoughtfully. I don't expect the kind of grandiose ego tripping mile long threads that I generally start, but I really do enjoy a little bit of content with my humor. Speaking of humor... 3. Be funny, make me laugh. And remember I don't like Jim Carrey/Tom Green/JackAss/Three Stooges kind of humor. I'm all about wordplay, dry humor, sarcasm (it's a beautiful thing), amusing insults (including but not limited too making fun of Paityr). 4. Be nice to Cadsuane (but not too nice >:( you cheeky bastards) because she rocks my world. I had more points but I forgot them when I got up to take a piss. Apparantly my creativity drains out with what's left of the Orange Juice (after my body extracts vital nutrients n such). Next thing you know I'll just start talking in incomplete sentences and throwing around emoticon's like they're skittles at a valentines day parade (although maybe getting inside the mind of the Shayol Ghul will help me to better understand this point system they refuse to teach me about)(on a seperate parenthetical I like skittles, that could be number five black tower folk. Find me and give me skittles, they're tasty and colorful). To keep it short at the BT I'll just read and report on the threads that were active today, they're entirely too busy over there posting for me to read it all. And the twenty two minutes I spent over there last week caused me to have this drunken wolfie following me around today... Hey, my Circa 2000 Spymaster Report is over there. Roka posted it (presumably to show the rest of them BT boys that he was once upon a great and deadly force at DM). See, now I feel bad, because I was supposed to be over at the BT last week to engage in a takeover (of course no one knew I was coming so technically no one probably noticed that I didn't show up ;)). I had originally planned to visit and post random stories and at the end of the week have a dance (because Elgee asked me if I would (and I like dances)) but then I got sidetracked. Now I feel bad (not because I didn't show up last week though because really, I'm JD, I'll get there when I get around to it :P, but because now my visit will seem to coincide with this odd JD fixation they've found themselves working through, so it will lesson the excitement of me just showing up and yelling out "HEY! I'M NOT WEARING PANTS" and that was really going to be the highpoint of the week). DM is loading slow again. Why do I do these reports in the middle of the night? I forget. While I'm waiting I'll let you all in on a little secret. I feel like texting Cads, but it's not my turn, it's hers, so I'll just randomly text other people and let them bask in the amazing that is Gerry (or JD if you'd rather). Is the board loaded yet? *checks* Ironically enough the thread I was waiting on was Dunbar's post complaining about slow loading times on the BT private boards. ... *shrugs* I didn't say it was funny, just ironic. If you assumed irony from me is always funny then that's a complex you've got to deal with on your own (or perhaps go see a man with a couch).... They have a lot of links at the BT. I went back and read Tayol's inflation post (even though it hadn't been posted on today) because I knew it was new and figured he wouldn't do a link (since he didn't with the last thing I read of his on the BT board (the $1000 (or $999 (or something completely different but still a high dollar amount)) application thingy) but he had a link (and I still don't follow links despite heavy lobbying from the link people). Let's away from the Black Tower though now. This report feels long. I started it two hours ago (and I feel like I have at least another hour or two to go (for the record it's the reading of the posts that takes so long, not my writing I can type more than two and a half words per minute)). The Illuminator's board is a whole new experience for me since I joined their fine org. They have a lot of Child boards I really don't feel like reading. I hate the fact that orgs have all these intro posts and rules. Why can't I just join an org and just be me without all these rules n stuff? Why the hoops DM? I'm not the jumper I used to be. Um, at the Illumator's proper board I was about causing mischief right around the time of my last Spymaster Report. The Band has also kind of taken over that board with their various song things. There's a floriography seminar going on, and I enjoy stuff like that so I'll give that thread the official JD 'Thread of the Week'. It's original, interesting, and has Spymaster favorites like nephitess and Jelly making guest spots. So go read it (i'm not saying it's great or anything, but it's different, and different can be good when you read as many posts as I do). The Kin... Is halloween really a holiday? I vote no. Not to say I'm not doing anything on Halloween. I'm actually going trick or treating with my friend Dominique and her kid, she say's this girl Jasmine is coming along (just found out today) which is crazy because I wasn't aware they were even friends. I think this Jasmine chick is stalking me, but since none of you know who any of these people are I'll stop now. I was just saying I'm going trick or treating (not personally but with a small child (*nods inside the parenthesis*)) so it's not like I'm a grinch (of halloween) or anything. I just don't think it's a holiday (still enjoy it muchly). Really not a lot going on over at the Kin. They still have their spammers thread which is deep into the 8000s right now. But to give you an indication of where they're at in life (this is how the Kin roll) they have a Twinnie socks day (September 4th (that was over a month ago by the way (and also coincidentally the day that I started dating my ex fiance Tina (who is another person in my life you have no idea who I'm talking about))) thread that was just posted on yesterday (I mean twinnie socks day happened already, what could they possibly have to add this late in the game? Well, through the magic of copy and pasting and within the sacred boundaries of thid parenthetical I'll show you... nephitess Dragonmount Member Member Offline Gender: Green Ajah GLO Re: The Official TWINNIE SOCK DAY!!!! « Reply #29 on: October 11, 2008, 08:40:39 AM » Quote -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oh I'm sorry i missed this!!! *snugles Twin* Report A Spambot Logged -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's interesting how copy and paste translates a DM post. Anyway that was obviously nephetiss returning from some sort of absence. And yes she is still a spymaster favorite, but that post isn't the best of examples (I'm starting to think Hax is right and I just randomly pick out girls and label them spymaster fav's because I'm a chauvenistic pig and all that (not that it's a bad thing :-*))). This country music playlist has looped a bunch of times already. I really like 'God Blessed the Broken Road' by Rascall Flatts. It's a great track (old, but very good). [glow=red,2,300]Dude, stop with the motherfu...*throws up* ugh! parenthesis already. It's enough. I don't want to see them, or hear you use the word. Or...just stop man. It's not cute or funny anymore.[/glow] I thought you were sleeping. [glow=red,2,300]I wish[/glow] That's unecessarily hurtful. The Ogier have nothing going on. Which bums me out because when I first started doing these again they had quite a bit happening over there. Seanchan news. Apparantly the miniseries V is being remade. That's cool. I remember watching that with my mom and thinking it was mad awesome (course I was really young at the time). There was some talk about Halo 3 (Which included the return of Segurant (yay)), and Starcraft. Eleventh Hour as well. So if you're curious about any of those things then check out the 'Chan board. Also it's a great place to find movie news (if you're into that sort of thing anyway ;)) as my boy Empy is usually on top of all the latest movie gossip and the like. SG have posts, I read posts... and I'll recap thread by thread my thoughts on all things Ghul. First of all Dunbar's point post in which he uses a biblical device in an attempt at humor (I mean I know you all think he's funny and I'm trying to understand you but I just don't know if I can get there from here). It's a really old thread (I missed it before though apparantly) so I just read pages one, two, and eight. eclipse posted a picture of himself in a kilt (eclipse looks a good deal like Ron Jeremy by the by). Read all four pages, I got nothing. chillimous has been here four years. FDM is informing her fellow SG type people about the Admin game thing I referenced earlier. Apparantly FDM takes it upon herself to usurp me in my duties as official...erm, teller of things. I've still got my eye on you. A former spymaster fav with an abundance of vowels smack dab in the middle of her name is sporting brand new halloween sigs, and also pimping an auction happening somewhere in the hidden areas of Shayol Ghul. I'd buy Talya, because she's been a randomly amusing read for me tonight. I've read a couple other posts that I didn't write about. Sorry SG. Let's do Wolfkin. Soy Boyo is now in charge of the Wolfkin (he's the new Org leader and stuff) so by all means go and congratulate him and wish him good luck on his new...whatever. *g* Soy is a Spymaster favorite and a starring character in my Silly Wars trilogy, so I'm very happy with the selection. Congrats Soyo, I still probably won't read your board. Except Paw Prints, because it takes effort to put out something like that and I appreciate the dedication it takes to consitantly produce stuff for your fellow DMers to enjoy. Pawprints was good again, but a little short (which the wolfies apologized for (I'm considering accepting their apology)). It also lacked the interview section. I was gone from DM during their last pawprints and therefore missed Empy's interview, though I read it later and noted my name mentioned and all was right with DM. Finally, saving the best for last... The White Tower. Damn, I'm really far behind *goes to reading* I'm glad this is my last stop. ooooh, autumn fair, going to take place the twentieth through the 26 (why would I write 20th and then use the numerical version of twenty-sixth? That doesn't make sense, that's not how sane people behave). It looks like it could just be made of awesome. So go check out the Autumn fair thread over at the White Tower for the complete list of events n' such. If it looks newsworthy enough I'll go into greater depth next week (Tuesday...a week from Tuesday that is). Paityr went crazy in the candle thread. Paityr is funny. I'll end my report with Paityr. You're my boy Pait. The End. [glow=red,2,300]Thank God[/glow] JD, Spymaster All editing was done to fix grammatical errors (didn't even come close to getting them all)
