Re: (For) Random Thoughts and Observations

Time zone not friendly for me but I would recommend downloading the game, creating a character on the same server as the others (Landroval I think) and playing through the introductory quests. It serves as a sort of tutorial

Re: Dune

Re: The Wheel of Time TV Series

I have only read the first 5 or 6 books, which I bought on Honeymoon 25 years ago so I'm hardly an expert, but I enjoyed them at the time. Certainly much better than Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series which was around the same time, around the same number of books, and seemed to stea...

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Yeah, I'm willing to wait and see on this one. Once they don't contradict major storylines I'm willing to accept a bit of latitude.

Re: Looking back at the LotR gamble 20 years on

Actually it was Moriarty from the same site http://legacy.aintitcool.com/node/10098 The lights come up. And I’m sitting in a screening room just off Beverly Blvd. It’s a Wednesday morning. Everything’s back to normal. Only it’s not. Because I’ve seen what I’ve seen now, and there’s no turning back. ...

I remember downloading that overnight. Quicktime player

Re: Looking back at the LotR gamble 20 years on

I was really eagerly following every tidbit of news at the time, checking all the websites and chatrooms daily.
