  2. Sorry Mother! I keep forgetting to check here. I'll upload the pic to my DM gallery. Give me a second.
  3. Wheel of Time Spoilers is a newish podcast (the first episode aired April 2017), so it might be under the radar for many Wheel of Time fans. The hosts, Seth and Patrick, began with personal stories of how they first started reading the series, then moved onto background information about the world of the Wheel (ie: the Age of Legends, the Breaking), then jumped into a chronological reread/discussion of The Eye of the World. They are currently on The Great Hunt, but the latest episode is a diversion from their norm; they invited Jason Denzel to talk with them. Besides sharing stories about Dragonmount's origins, Jason discusses his fan-turned-friend relationship with Robert Jordan, all in a nearly two-hour episode packed full of everything you need to know if you call yourself a Wheel of Time fan. Fans of Jason's own writing will rejoice too, because there are lots of details about his journey to being a published author. He talks about how Mystic evolved from an intended screenplay to a full-fledged trilogy, and shares his experiences on working with Tor. Wheel of Time Spoilers is very focused on interacting with fans of the series. You can join their Discord channel, follow them on Facebook and Twitter, or even get special content by becoming a Patreon patron.

  5. I changed it for you. Now it's rotating. Not sure how it works--if you have to save it, then upload it, or if you can just copy and paste. Copy and paste worked for me. Or maybe this is another thing New DM is going to be weird on....
  6. Sorry! I forgot about this, Mother! Does this work?
  7. Our very own Jason Denzel was humbled by an opportunity to speak to Narg the Trolloc, who is in charge of The Daily Trolloc, a website aflutter with all the rumors within The Wheel of Time fandom. Every current bit of information is squeezed into each edition of The Daily Trolloc, and Jason’s interview is one piece of the latest gossip. Narg’s questions range from asking about memories of Robert Jordan to more personal topics, such as Jason’s Mystic trilogy—the second due out summer 2018, the third currently being written. Jason’s account of listening to Jordan read The Path of Daggers sent shivers up my own spine. (If you haven’t heard Jordan’s voice before, it’s worth listening to this audio clip; you’ll understand what Jason meant.) My personal favorite of Narg’s questions was an optimistic look at how the Trollocs are regarded: You can keep up with Narg and his adventures by following him on Facebook or Google+.
  8. Adam Whitehead recently published this fascinating article which is a culmination of Robert Jordan's notes, interviews, blog entries, and statements to show the evolution of Jordan's ideas regarding The Wheel of Time. One of the more interesting pieces of information is how different the series initially began. Whitehead refers to Jordan's first outline as "Death Metal Wheel of Time," and "essentially George R.R. Martin on acid." This version featured plotlines full of blood, violence, and sex--very different from the wholesome series we have today. The main character Rhys al'Thor was initially the Dragon, able to enter the wolf dream, and had amazing luck. Jordan eventually split these three attributes, forming Perrin Aybara and Mat Cauthon to help the Dragon with his world-saving. And another curious fact is that Rhys eventually became Tam al'Thor, not Rand. Jordan's intention was to make the savior a middle-aged war veteran, not the young farm boy typically associated with epic fantasy. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Whitehead details so many characters as they were melded with others or split into two. There's also a lot about worldbuilding and the different cultures that make up The Wheel of Time. The time and effort needed by Whitehead to sift through all this information and make sense of the details is amazing! Even more so is Jordan himself, for allowing all of this to brew in his imagination. Check out Whitehead's complete article here.
  9. How's this? I can get them both added to a rotation if you like it.
  10. Here's a first attempt. What do you think?
  11. Do you want it to say anything, Mother?
  12. Rafe Judkins, the writer and showrunner for a potential Wheel of Time television series sent out a tweet earlier this week showing off his worn copies of the first three novels. Many have speculated that this means Judkins is starting to work on a script for the show. Adam Whitehead sums up the current rights and details of the show on his website, stating : We are all very anxious to see the show find a home, and having a fan at the helm definitely gives me hope! If you want to keep up to date with all the latest information, you can follow Judkins on Twitter. View full news item

  15. Ithi, have you seen this? At the top Home tab, you can select "unread content." From there, you can narrow what you're looking for, to topics, content you follow, etc. Select what you want to view then hit "Save as new stream." I'm still learning all this too, so that might not be the right solution.
  16. People should be trickling back now.... Hopefully.
