  1. Those are adorable, @LilyElizabeth! And not embarrassing at all! *lol*
  2. Oh, this looks fun! @ATuckerMorin, let us know if you want us to post here or send you a PM with our guesses!
  3. Oh no! The link doesn't work! So if you want to do a new puzzle online, you may do so as long as you screenshot me the correct solution!
  4. I discovered the reverse word search at the end of the school year when I was looking into leading a summer school course based on logic games and puzzles for my elementary students. They are amazingly fun and addictive! The point is to get a mostly blank word search with the terms written on the side of the puzzle. You need to get all the words into the blank spaces in the puzzle! Sounds hard, but math is your friend. Those long words can only fit a few places. So here's the puzzle in jpeg format, but I've also included the link to try it online if you prefer. Take a screenshot of your finished puzzle to win! https://rws.puzzlebaron.com/play.php
  5. This is a topic I find hilarious--though many might think it annoying. I am the biggest fan of terms of endearment. I call my husband, my dogs, my sister, and many of my friends by silly, affectionate words. Sometimes it's just a nickname based on their real name. Like my husband's name is Jeremy and I'll call him Jem. Or my doggos are Friday and Mr. Smith, which turns into Friday Fritters and Smitter Mitter. *collect groan from the readers* Yes, I'm afraid to admit my terms of endearment get even worse than the above examples. Jeremy may also be called "hunny bunny pop" sometimes. So, let's hear the worst you have. Share the terms of endearment you use on your friends and family members!
  6. The latest casting announcement for the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show has been announced. Darryl McCormack as Aram Maria Doyle Kennedy as Ila Narinder Samra as Raen These new announcements shouldn't come as any real shocker. Darryl McCormack and Maria Doyle Kennedy were introduced as characters ages ago. Many speculated that Darryl McCormack could be Aram, but most thought Maria Doyle Kennedy was sure to play an Aes Sedai. It's nice to finally have confirmation for these two characters, and the addition of Narinder Samra as Raen. I personally love the idea of the Tuatha'an within the series. Their way of life is simplistic and idealistic. But like Perrin, I agree it's not really applicable in society. Still, I cannot wait to see the Tinkers on the screen. Perhaps the show will even give more closure for their society than what we received in the novels. Maybe they'll find their song. You can check out the latest edition of The Wheel of Time Community Show where Thom gives you all the details you'll need about our beloved Tinkers. Did anyone anticipate Maria Doyle Kennedy as Ira?

  8. The latest casting announcement for the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show has been announced. Darren Clarke as Basel Gill Basel Gill plays an important role in reuniting our beloved Two Rivers characters, and this announcement could mean we're getting closer to the in-book scenes in Caemlyn. Will Elyane be revealed next? Or maybe Morgase? Gareth Bryne? Maybe Elaida? Or is this an indication that Master Gill's character is changing or evolving from his role in the books? The Twitter feed for @WOTonPrime seems to be aligning their announcements with what's happening in the books--based on the #TwitterofTime book club reading of The Eye of the World. If we get this information when Basel isn't even mentioned (they read chapters 19-22 this week), it could be foreshadowing about changes to the storyline. What do you think? Is the Two Rivers group heading to Caemlyn? Or will Basel Gill appear elsewhere? Let us know what you think in the comments below! View full news item

  10. Amazon Prime announced today, via social media, the casting of three actors for The Wheel of Time TV show. Jennifer Preston as Mistress Grinwell Pasha Bocarie as Master Grinwell Izuka Hoyle as Dana There’s already been some debate on who Dana might be. Listed with Mistress and Master Grinwell, logic would say she’s Else Grinwell but with a different name (we already have two major characters with E names—Egwene and Elayne—so this change might be to cause less confusion for TV viewers). There’s also Dena—Thom’s apprentice in The Great Hunt. It seems too early to have her appearing, though. But in the world of cinematic storytelling, who know! Let us know who you think Dana might be in the comments below!
  11. I think the covers were always done as a loose interpretation of what's actually going on (like there's more people in the party of Two Rivers folk than there really were traveling with Moiraine). But for me, this cover has always been amazingly cool! Perhaps the size (or shortness) of Moiraine is emphasized, but that doesn't bother me. Or maybe Mandarb is 25 hands?
  12. It varies how soon books are available for pre-order, but the metallic cover edition will be published in October, so maybe by the end of the summer. We’ll give an announcement when the pre-order is available!
  13. This year, The Eye of the World celebrated its 30th anniversary. To commemorate this special occasion Tor Books is releasing a new hardcover and paperback versions of The Eye of the World as well as a new paperback cover for New Spring. The 30th anniversary The Eye of the World hardcover will be published October 6th, 2020. This amazing cover has metallic binding. It will include a new introduction written by Brandon Sanderson. The Eye of the World’s official birthday was January 15th, 1990, and the Wheel of Time Community Show did celebrate this milestone earlier this year. The new paperback version is the first time The Eye of the World will be released in the trade paperback size. The artwork will feature the original image of Moiraine, Lan, and Rand drawn by Darrell K. Sweet, but in a format similar to the other trade paperbacks in the series. The publication date for this version will be August 4th, 2020. Another first, New Spring, the prequel to the series, will also be released in trade paperback. The cover will feature artwork by Jason Chan, showing the moment Moiraine bonds Lan as her warder. The publication date will be August 18th, 2020. Fans have wanted these two books in trade paperback for some time. With these additions, our bookshelves will be complete! You can watch Ebony go over the details in the latest episode of the Wheel of Time Community Show! So, are you as anxious as I am to get the metallic cover? Let us know in the comments.

  15. Welcome back to Community Round-Up, a look at all the happenings within the Wheel of Time fandom and the larger sci-fi/fantasy community. First off TorCon is happening online this week! Tor Books teamed up with Den of Geeks to bring a virtual convention with amazing panels. TorCon kicks off Thursday June 11th with Brandon Sanderson talking about his latest projects! This is a prerecorded event and only available this weekend. You can register for this event here, or see what else TorCon has to offer! Sticking with the Brandon Sanderson theme, you can now take an official quiz to find out which order of Knights Radiant you would be. The Knights Radiant are a group of fighters in the Stormlight Archive series. Each order focuses on different missions, skills and bindings, and they also bond different spren. I tied for Truthwatcher and Windrunner, which sums up my personality perfectly. The Dusty Wheel interviewed Joshua Stolarz, a cartographer, and Joshua shared an amazing drawing of the Two Rivers. You can download Joshua’s map here. I cannot get enough of these sword dances. When thinking about the Amazon Prime show and how some of the sword forms will be shown, I imagine over-the-top stylized fights. Here is a video posted by Stance on Facebook, from Taipei, Taiwan. As always, let’s end with some of the best memes I can find on the internet. While I love Nynaeve's character and her growth throughout the series (and getting over ingrained prejudices), I'm sure the draw One Power was also a factor in her change of view. The evolution of the Aiel (as seen through the flashbacks from the ter'angreal in Rhuidean) is one of my favorite in the series. It's amazing how just a small step each generation can change a whole belief system. While this might seem true on the surface, the Two Rivers folk do have the necessary courage to fight for the Light when it matters! That's all for this edition. Which Order of the Knights Radiant were you? Let us know in the comments!
