    ...what nationality would you be?

    Let me explain a bit. I was bored one day at work and since I've been reading a lot of the WoT books lately while waiting for the new one to come out, I was thinking a bit about it and I went off into a random tangent :lol If you took the map of Randland and superimposed your country onto it, where in Randland would you be living?

    I live in Northern VA so if I had to guess, I would probably be living in the Nation of Cairhein (not the city) near the road to Rhuidean. I realise some countries are tall instead of wide so for those turn it so west is north and the figure out where you are from there :p

    If I stretch the dimensions to fit the UK, I'm pretty much where Far Madding is. Good job really. Then no-one will know I can channel. :look

    Well, since I am also in northern Virginia, I am where Alora is.

    I currently live in Germany. I think Berlin would be along the river a bit north-east from Tar Valon. Shienaran border.
    But I'm really from Helsinki, Finland, and that would be Illian, the city of Illian.

    If I did this right, I would be somewhere near Ebou Dar.

    Just eyeballing Canada, I'm thinking Mississauga/Toronto correspond roughly to the city of Tear.

    Tar Valon and probably Illian. I would need to look at a map of the UK since I have no real idea where London actually is lol.

    Can't say I found this very easy, but I guess I'd be somewhere around the Two Rivers.

    Well I tend to think as Randland as Europe, so I figure I'm in the Land of Madmen.



    But if you put Australia onto Randland, I guess I'm probably around Tanchico

    I'd be somewhere near the Two Rivers, I think. Probably in Baerlon.

    This was quit difficult. I'm guessing Amadacia, but I'm not sure.

    I love in the Pacific Northwest, so Arad Doman. Which suits me well, I love the mountains which there is in the west part of Arad Doman. I also love cold beaches, I love wearing a hoodie at the beach in Washington :lol

    If I'm doing this correctly, probably around Far Madding? I live in Tennessee and assuming Tear/Mayene is Florida... anyways, that's my calculation.

    I live in South Carolina in the real Two Rivers (Charleston), but according to the map I would be somewhere in the spine of the world.
