Anyone who liked LoTR should read TWoT. Nice to know a movie is in the works. Would have to be at least 5-4hr movies.

And at least a trilogy of games. Hopefully they make the game(s)/movie(s) less wuss than the books are.

The casting for a TWoT movie should be hard... How do you cast Lanfear/Cyndane!?? Most beatiful woman ever, ummmmmm. And Rand?!!? A giant basically, hmmmmm, not too many of those going around.

You're on book 7 (out of 12 so far, not 11)? Read slowly, the final chapters are due out in the coming years. You know the guy who wrote the first 11 died right? Poor guy contracted some crazy instant-death desease. The last books are being written by another author based on the notes he left.

I must say, I've just about finished book one (they just came out of the ways to the blight), and am most impressed with the writing style, it is a shame Jordan died before completing his works.

From what Ive read, a fantastic setting for any game.

So, the same Obsidian that was working on Alien RPG that was cancelled, Alpha Protocol that has been delayed a million times and Fallout Vegas that's coming this fall, is also working on this game? Are they like a thousand people or something?


thats just what i was thinking.

I still liked Kotor 2 and i am looking forward to see what they do with alpha pro, but I would imagine they must be stretched.

If they're anything like Jordan was, they'll milk the franchise out way too long. Seriously, the story just got too drawn out around A Crown of Swords.

I completely agree with you !

I'll add that I personnaly hated most of the characters in these books :-P.

Good news for the fans I guess

I actually enjoyed the books the first time I read them. Subsequent readings made me realise how monotonous Jordans writing style was. And any chapter that was told from the perspective of Elayne, Egwene or Nynaeve was just uninteresting. Sadly that was about half of each book after #3.

The games might be good, but theres no way they can convey the entire story of the books. Its just too rich for a movie or a game.

I thought the PC iteration was quite impressive. It was an amazing 3rd person spell based game. I hope these next installments do justice to the under rated original.
