Wheel of Time Full Trailer is out *No Spoilers Please*

Yeah and like, people walking about of the theater to announce to the people waiting to go in that Han gets ganked by Kylo Ren who is Ben Solo, are dumb jerks that deserve to be punched.

Talking about it now, years later, is not in any way a bad thing, on any level. Full stop.
It seems to be a very strange thing to say when we were only recently discussing in the previous thread on WOT that tons of people don’t know much about or have only read a few books out of the series.

If there ever was an IP that’s been out for a long time and fantasy fans still might not know it’s this one.

I mean, it is one of the most widely read fantasy novel series ever. Still, I'm personally choosing to be circumspect about plot elements insofar as I can be, but it's not unreasonable to be fairly loose with plot elements to books that are older than the average D&D player.

I don’t see how the first example is fundamentally different than the second. People get introduced to things at different times. Some of them weren’t even alive when they were new.

They don’t deserve to experience the same wonder their predecessors did?
The biggest twist of the first novel is spoiled in the pull quote if you Google "Rand al'Thor." Which I bet a few people who haven't read the books are likely to do before they finish the first half of this shoe. It's a different world than in 1990.

I think that’s my approach. Talk about or allude to things without throwing open your overcoat and waving your third-season-finale-tallywacker in everyone’s face.

I learned early, not to google anything regarding an already released series/TV show/book.

Ideally don’t read the news either the day after an episode is released, when you have it saved on sky plus 😂😂

Anyone played games inspired by Wheel of Time? The first one I ran into was Wheel of Time Quake it was a custom fan homage to Wheel of Time with asha'man with flaming swords and healer lightning tossing Ae Sedai... it had to change its name to Fantasy Quake but it was always WoT Quake to me

I also purchased the d20 Wheel of Time book

And played the official WoT game that came out shortly after WoT quake was forced to change its name.

I mean, especially if there are people specifically asking people to hide spoilers in the thread, then just... don't.

There's always people who are new. When FF7 Remake was coming out people started getting a lot more circumspect about who dies and when, which had previously been one of the most openly discussed spoiler in video games.

Wheel of Time is also, infamously, a series a lot of people don't finish.

Don't be a jerk

A remembrance from WoT Quake in team mode, being someone who tossed erratic lightning which hurt allies kind of made being a healer too very handy.

Huh. I don’t even remember that there was a twist in the first novel.

I mean, it's not too hard to see coming, but it sure as heck surprises Rand. And like much of the Wheel of Time, it's about the journey of discovery inside the characters shoes more than the destination.
 

Only thing that really stood out to me much as a fan is that they seemed to highlight Egwene more than Ran (who I thought was supposed to be the main character!) and that the Myrdraal seemed like a very good depiction (creepy mouth!)
What seems to be going on there, and with the focus of Moraine as the lead, is that they are trying to maintain the mystery, for those who haven't read the books, of exactly which of the Emonds Field characters is actually going to be the main character (and the baggage that comes with it)...
 

By the way, the YouTube comment section is sprinkled with unintentionally hilarious (and awful) remarks by obvious trolls and bots stating that they've "read the books" and then go on to complain about things they assume are changes made by the production but are, actually, features of the books themselves.

Hiya!


News Flash: Unreal is STILL a high end engine...actually, I'd probably put it at THE high end engine.
Unreal Engine 5 is the latest incarnation:
And if you want a little more "techical" info:

I couldn't get past the first book, but I will absolutely give this a try. Here's hoping the main characters aren't a bunch of whiners and the female characters are better written.

I’m just at a loss as to what in the trailer is “generic”. I mean...the characters are human and there is magic? That's....about it.
I think just about every fantasy trailer I've seen has looked "generic." I can't fault WoT for that.
My most vivid memory is that there were a stretch of three books where nothing really happened. In one of them, literally nothing happened until the last few pages.
In one of the books Elayne took a bath. That's all I can remember about it. But I'm hoping things go a lot quicker in the streaming series than they do in the books.
Beautiful now I want a new Wheel of Time game :p
::Remembering the d20 version:: Be careful what you wish for!
