It looks like The Dark Tower TV adaptation has not only been greenlit by Amazon, but is further along than The Wheel of Time. The Hash Tag Show has reported that season one of DT will consist of 13, one hour episodes and that Amazon are looking to start filming as early as mid-April in Croatia. The showrunner, Glen Mazzara did "like" a tweet that asked if the news was legit, so it looks like it is.

This is interesting to Narg as it shows how Amazon are taking a totally different approach with DT, when compared with how they have handled WoT. No greenlight announcement and no engagement with fans. Is this due to showrunner preference, or are they just afraid of the fan base due to the backlash against the film? 13 episodes is also noteworthy as it shows Amazon are malleable on their usual 10 episode season length for hour long dramas.

The Daily Record is reporting movement  on Amazon's LotR's prequal adaptation. Apparently Amazon have been scouting Scotland...
Streaming giants Amazon have struck a deal for the series and have been scouting out locations in Skye, Perthshire and Loch Lomond.

Adam from the Wertzone, has posted the first part of his Wheel of Time Atlas:

The story begins on Winternight in the 998 NE, the final night of winter and the evening preceding Bel Tine, the celebration that marks the arrival of spring. This date falls on 8 Aine in the local calendar, approximating 23 March in our calendar. This is Day 0 of the Wheel of Time story and our subsequent counts will be (with varying degrees of approximation) from this date. Note that the dates are taken from Steven Cooper’s excellent Wheel of Time Chronology.
It's basically a read through of the books with maps and background information.

Merchant Green made a custom dice mat/tray:

R/WoT member brolyismaximum has a look at why Gawyn is such a douche. He gives five reasons and comes to this conclusion:
Gawyn's jealousy and indecisiveness stem from his insecurity, which stems from him losing his place in the world. He's *not* important any longer, and he's *not* really relevant to world events any longer, and everyone else seems to *just love* this jumped up *peasant* Rand al'Thor.
Gawyn, while on the side of the Light, is not what I would call a "good" man. But he is a very realistic character, when compared to basically every main character. It makes it easy to hate him, because all the other characters are larger-than-life, self-sacrificing, amazing people. Gawyn is the stereotyped middle manager who saw themselves doing great things but was forced to wallow in mediocrity.
Agree, disagree?
