  1. I have it, but am forcing myself not to play it. My addiction to cybernations is bad enough, lol
  2. It's an online nation sim. A very well done one. Lots of detail and options, and the politics are awesome. Lots of drama between the alliances. From the proud and noble Legion, to the mighty NPO aor the cowardly GOONS and alot more besides. It's alot of fun. www.cybernations.net
  3. Does anybody else here play this?
  4. It's not the "flame and void" you assume. You are merely without emotion. When you sre utterly calm you do most things better.
  5. I've never sparred with an actual boken, per se, but i have with wooden doweling practice swords that me and my friend made. (both a single 3/4" and multiple 3/32" (bundled lathes)) works pretty good. Though they hurt like a bugger to have broken over your neck.... But we did wear some protection, gauntlets are pretty much a must. :cry:
  6. How can this work. This is that state I live most of my life in... It is an instinctual thing, to me. I requires no flame, no void, merely a concentration on mind, rather than emotion. It's hard to explain, though the "flame and void" is a way to enter it. It's useful for high concentration activities shooting , climbing, sparring, video games, etc. Many people often say they cannot read me due to this, cannot tell my thoughts. I thinks it' kind of cool, to be "stone faced", as RJ writes...
  7. Birgitte. How many lifetimes experience? You know that's a good thing.
  8. Shara!!!! Did you people even read the series? Shara lost the Trolloc Wars. Rhuarc says they were... infested. This does not seem a light aligned place to me.
  9. I think I might be insane. Many of my dreams center around fantasy stuff. Some WOT, but many other things. I have many dreams that seemed based on some struggle. It is a constant battle. No matter the weapon, be it guns, swords or supernatural powers, the theme is the same. I am fighting, often with a sword against some enemy. It is usually a human enemy, but often wiht some gteat advantage, usually in the form of invincibility through extemely rapid healing. I try to destroy my enemy, slash with all my strength with a razor sharp sword, to leave a would that will NEVER affect the adversary, despite my best efforts. I often have a similar dream with powers of Channeling mixed with DBZ. I can fly! (Power is weilded like DBZ, but it channeling, don't ask me how.) In any case the enemy I fight never grow weaker. However my powers/sword/gun all seem to fail me. powers grow weaker, what could once obliterate cities, barely nudges things. Swords grow dull, break. Guns devolve from miniguns and lazer cannon to BB guns and paintball markers. And in all of it, I am filled with the most pure rage at the fact that these powers are failing. Rage and despair. I dont know. I have dreams set in the WoT world too. I dream I am Mat, Rand countless others. Battling the shadow, uniting the clans, all that good stuff.
  10. Something has been bugging me for some time. Why didn't, in times of need, like the Trolloc wars, Aes Sedai bond thousands and thousands of warders? They would all have the benefits. I would put a warder army on par with any Aiel army. I could butcher the Shadow. I mean say thirty thousand people as good as say, Tomas, would be nearly invincible. So why didn't the Aes Sedai do this? Insanity, power degradation, what?
  11. Well, look at The Sword of Truth. I don't know who stole from who, but for a while, I thought RJ and TG were one and the same.
  12. Uhh. Richard Rahl has godlike power. He's also a great hero.
  13. Well, he does have that dream of Egwene leaving and the trio coming. That was before he even thought of that. Also, if he was brought into TAR by a Forsaken, they would have leaped ath the chance to kill Perrin or Egwene. They don't want to convert them. They wouldn't have stood idle.
  14. Uhhh... Who are the two sharans we have met?
  15. It always seemed that Mat was more loyal to Rand than Perrin. Mat will complain but is the most honorable, loyal character in the books. Perrin, on the other hand is not. While loyalty to Faile is understandable, it is unreasonable. When faced with the obliteration of all things by the dark one, the only possoble savior of humanity whould be your priority. Not a girl who deflectes him from what must be done, and actively tries to turn him against Rand.
  16. I will hate it when WOT ends. When i read the last word, my reaction will be something like: no no no no no no no No No No No No No NO NO NO NO NO NO!!! (lol) It wil be like watching my best friend killed with a sandblaster.
  17. I like the guy with the sword. He could be anyone.
  18. It's scary. I read them all. The nimber that should be psychotic and unreasonable, that actually apply to me...
  19. The thing we must remember is that remember is that certain authors are considers great for a specific reasons. Be it daring, creativity, origionality, etc. Tolkien was considered great for two reasons. First, because he pretty much created a genre. The second is the expaniveness of his fantasy world. From the destruction of Gondolin to the War of the Ring to the forging of the Simarils, there is so much history. It's as if he created a "history of the world" and he had to create the world from scratch. Jordan's claim to fame is the second of those. He has created a world as vast and diverse as our own. With cultures that are as varied as the peoples, it is more expansive, more immersive, more addictive than any MMORPG. HE has created over nine thousand pages, with hundreds, if not thousands of characters that are all unique enough that I could desrcribe nearly any one. Throughout all those thousands of pages there are no contradictions at all. Every character is developed, acts as they all had character describptions as vast as the main ones. The charactes themselves are immense. I have never read more realistic people. Jordan is able to convincingly, intuitively create people from all different viewpoints. As to Dune, there is definitely, as different between it and WOT. Dune was about human nature. WOT is about human potential.
  20. Exactly. Le Chatelier's principle. Thay means some would have to go back the other way.
  21. Personally i believe the gasp event was either the loss of rand's hand, or when LT seized the source...
