  1. Dude! Get more friends.

  2. Luckers, what are the chances you could start a poll, people who would prefer two books over one for AMoL, especially after all the plot threads left dangling in ToM... Also, good to see you running the show. *back to lurking, and watching.*
  3. Hi guys. Spotted this on Brandon's twitter. Some dude: "...Will we see more from Shara or the Land of Madmen?" Brandon: RJ said there would be no major action in Shara. He was uncertain on Madmen ...Hmm? Uncertain? Very nice dodge of the "No" response expected. A very Aes Sedai answer. Two points: ONE, as a writer, he would have read the entirety of the notes RJ left in order to write the two books he has already, and would have read if the action heads to the land of madmen or not. TWO: Having read these notes, even if he is uncertain of the specific plot details, he would remember if the story had a section set on -ANOTHER CONTINENT ENTIRELY UNREVEALED BY NOW- Speculation: There is -a- plot detail, minor or major, that could be resolved by either intervention from the Land of Madmen, or by action on the continent itself. Given the above two points, by Brandon saying he is uncertain if RJ sent the story there or not, it really means he is uncertain if HE will be able to fit or otherwise include material already jotted down about the LoM. He has said everything RJ has written will be included, but I take this to prose he has written, not things like (for example) Demandreds army is from the Land of Madmen. It would be up to Brandon to decide to write a scene in the Land of Madmen with him collecting his army, or for the army to appear on the main continent assumed to have gotten there previously. Also, earier, someone mentioned a big old list of predictions for AMOL, including the little word in edgewise intoning that if every plot point got a chapter, it would be an insanely large or two parter book. Hows this fit in then: Some Other Dude: ...RE: AMoL, I hope there will be tonnes more Tuon/Seanchan? Brandon: There will be more than ToM. ...how much was in ToM? Half a chapter? Also: Dude the Third: Will AMoL be centred on Mat? Rand had tGS and Perrin had ToM Brandon: It will be pretty equal Interesting. Shame for the Mat lovers though. ...Discuss!
  4. I don't know if this is a spambot, or a really sad moment in a failed attempt of one man to reach out and communicate with another :'( Hey, free pills! Seriously I don't trust that link.
  5. http://members.casema.nl/e.f.delaat/Dragon%20Con%20day%202.html Very interesting... this quote from DragonCon in 2005, and the opening paragraph for ToM leads me to believe that maybe there could be at least a small portion of this new book having a scene from the Seanchan continent in it. I seem to remember a quote from BS saying he picked Towers of Midnight because he thought it was poetic or some such wording, and always kind of thought that meant there'd be new Towers of Midnight, "in their new center of military might, with the forces that were beginning the consolidation before the conquest of Randland." But starting off the winds in the original location puts a damper on that, unless it's just a teaser. Edit: My bad not poetic: 13th book, 13 towers, perhaps a circle of 13+13 somewhere in this book? /insane theory
  6. Heres the rub, I have a tendancy to blow stuff up willy-nilly. I'm actually quite concerned at the explosion count in my current story, but thats for another thread. So I lied... Just trying to make a good impression here!
  7. Aparently it's God Moding... I just calling it being a God!
  8. ed: if only it was that easy. Oh, the F7 button is always there, but who has time for that kinda thing! elgee: I don't beleive I've had the pleasure *extends hand* I'm one of those nice ones, that don't go insane and blow up the world ;D (Don't ask ed about my blowing up world activities, actually... :-\)
  9. I'm spellchecking and revising as I speak! Thats the irony!
  10. Yeah and I claim to be a writer... ::)
  11. Why can't we not be sober? Instant win on the Tool reference, and welcome!
