    I always thought I was a bit strange having such a fondness for the Kin with Wise Ones, Windfinders, Aes Sedai and Asha'man wandering Randland. I'm glad I'm not the only one! ^^

    I think the other channeling groups are... fine... but Aes Sedai politics, intrigue, ajahs, and all that have always been more interesting for me.

    They are more interesting, but there is something cozy about the Kin, and I'm a fan of cozy.

    Kin. I meant Kin- the Circle was the town council of the Kin, right? Oops.
    Memory is not strong with this one.

    Yes, the Knitting Circle leads the Kin . . but I tend to lump them together myself.

    I hope they do not do as they did with the series to Terry Brooks "Shannara Chronicles".

    And then I wonder how Channeling will be performed: D

    I find them annoying. :cheese

    Strangely enough, I LOVE the Hall in the White Tower. The Aes Sedai and their Hall are the only ones I like out of all the channelers.

    Oh and also the Forsaken. I adore them.

    :look

    Arion it seems like your life will be happier if you just don’t watch film adaptations of fantasy novels.

    And if you are determined to be so negative please don’t be a buzzkill around those of us who are excited and optimistic about this one.

    I wrote some articles many years ago about it. Here is a link to them in the Library. I wrote two of the articles in the Channeling category and all of the articles in the Dreamwalking category.

    Edit: The link doesn't go to the articles the way I thought, so here are the direct links.
