General Wheel of Time News

From the twitterverse Narg found these cute...

Did you know the The College of Charleston has a collection of Robert Jordan's notes and other stuff?
In September of this year(2012) The College of Charleston Special Collections acquired the papers of one of the most prolific and influential fantasy writers of our time, James O. Rigney Jr. Writing under the name Robert Jordan, Rigney Jr. created the Wheel of Time, a richly detailed and vividly imagined series that has captivated readers around the globe. The series, which has often been compared to the work of J. R. R. Tolkien in terms of its magic and magnetic hold on readers, has been translated into more than 30 languages and sold more than 44 million copies worldwide since its beginning over twenty years ago. The collection includes early and edited manuscripts of the Wheel of Time series and manuscripts from his other works – including his work on the Conan the Barbarian series and the Michael Fallon novels about a fictional Lowcountry family during the American Revolution. The collection also includes swords and scabbards, video interviews, an early Apple computer loaded with 4,000 pages of his notes, and first editions of his works in dozens of languages. 
Someone at the College started a blog(The True Source) back in 2012 and for awhile was updating it with cool finds from the collection. Unfortunately who ever it was stopped. Which is a bummer for those of us who can't make the pilgrimage to Charleston. Here's just a small sample:

Narg's Ranting Corner

A recent Reddit thread made Narg angy! Comments like:
Look Trollocs are misunderstood people! I mean sure, they eat people and rape whatever is still breathing and then eat it and Myrddraal use blades that have to be quenched and tempered in blood but guys they're really just misunderstood!
Sarcasm aside Trollocs have no interest in Raping women! Eating yes, raping no! Quit slandering an entire species! If you don't believe Narg how about you believe the Creator!
For the record, a Trolloc could also have sex with a human...they are now two completely incompatible species, so there isn't any possibility of offspring—the Forsaken tested that out too... Trollocs are just not interested in human women sexually; to them, humans are just another food animal... Trollocs are of fairly low intelligence (I told you the designer was never in combat), so they would think of it about as we would having sex with sheep, though they would do it if ordered to. They'd just like it better if they could eat her afterwards.
This also got Narg's goat up:
They're not oppressed, they live in the Blight because it's where the Dark One and the Myrdraal hold them. They're meant to be pure, mindless evil.
Trollocs aren't oppressed? WTF! Trollocs are the most oppressed population in the Westlands! You think we wan't to fight for the DO? Don't you remember that look of fear that passed over Narg's face when he mentioned the Myrddraal while chatting with rand? Trust Narg, Trollocs would rather kill defenseless human villages than fight soldiers! As for being evil...we are what we a Wolf evil because it kills to eat? Is a Cat evil because it play's with its food?

/end Nargs rant.

Yeah yeah it was a slow week!

Show Narg some Love or Hate!
