I grew up on a farm, which is now why I'm a city boy...

This may be neither here nor there, but as it's been 5-6+ years since I last read through the series, I'm starting back from the beginning, and....get this...

AUDIOBOOK!!!

Listening to the audiobook on my way to/from work (etc) is much more immersive than reading (safer when driving, too :p), so I think it has helped rekindle my 'WoT' Muse some. :)


Hope she's doing better, by the way.

Boss troubles → elevated stress levels → spotty online activity → annoyance at my own unreliability → elevated tension levels → less time doing anything but wanting to crawl into a hole and die when I get home. :-/

 @XARXU

 currently dead in the water X. We really really need more players, just the four of us isn't cutting the mustard at the moment for the type of game WoT should be  :^

I'm fired up! Been reading back through the series, on Book 3 now! I was on Book 7 or something before, but I think I'm understanding everything better this go-around.

The thing is can we make it work? At best there is only three of us, maybe four if Robert is still interested in doing the game. But I need to be brutally honest with you, for something like Wheel of Time we'd really need a minimum of six players to make it worthwhile. With the tempo of our other games here taken into consideration, neither Mel or myself have the capacity to run another game. If you were to do so, we'd need to know before hand you're willing to see it through.

I'm still interested. How about an RP in the future timeline I created? Steampunk/channelpunk. Dress and tech around WWI period.

As we argued before some years ago Robert, we may as well call it something different as it wouldn't be the story we all know, it would be something entirely of our own making without any references to the books, other than historical. But we'll see what others say, although I wouldn't be with you if that prevailed I'm sorry.

 Nope, its not me either. I will only do Aeil and I cannot do them in some futuristic scenario, they just don't fit together.

 Then we come back to the main thing, who's going to run it? It would have to be someone who has an extensive knowledge base of the books entirely and someone who knows how to organise and dare I say recruit players. Like Mum said up there ^^^ neither she or myself have the time to GM another game now.

As I mentioned when the board's prior 'manager' stepped down, I have no problem running a WoT RP from here, but I'm not one for organizing the direction of the plot. To be perfectly honest, I would be fine with there not being a formal "Manager" over this RP. We just continue where we left off, etc, etc.

As for another setting, I love the idea of taking the concept of 'Channeling' into another genre, but I'm already trying to introduce it on another site I play on, though I'm not sure what direction I would take it.

My suggestion: let's try this tentative roleplay out in the Discord. If it catches, and folks are really getting into it, then I would say it's time to make it into a board.

Also, I'm almost ALWAYS on Discord, so working on our WoT RP there is also an option.

And for those of you of prior generations who are uneasy about this new platform: take it from a fellow who walks the line between "tech savvy" and "OMG WTF is this new-fangled BS?!?" lol, Discord is a great thing.

At least, until they get bought out by Microsoft, Google, Facebook, or some other conglomerate, and it becomes a pay-to-use service (or it gets bought out, and scrapped, by a competing company).
