Howdy, I'm ChrisW. The only previous Wheel of Time forums i've been on were WoTmania and before that the forum that was at wheeloftime.com for the game that came out in the late Nineties(was Caldazar). I've also hung out at the malazan(hi Terez) and sffworld forums. Signed up to fnd out where I could get Distincions from. Thanks for the help. I haven't discussed WoT for ages so I might stick around.

Now for the small favour:)

I'm taking part in Orbit Australia's Orbit Quest 2010 (http://www.facebook.com/notes/orbit-in-australia/orbit-quest-2010/448120181293). I need to complete 12 tasks and score points from each one. All of mine are based on WoT and for one I need to dress up as my fav character. I've decided to go with Rand as I already have a Heron Mark sword. The help I need is in finding a good image of Rands Dragon Tatt so I can print it on some tattoo paper and apply it for the photo. Anyone seen a good colour image of the Dragon from the chapter icon that will still look good blown up to fit my arm?

Here are two of the tasks i've done so far.

Task 5: Fake Book cover: Who killed Asmodean for newbies (http://www.facebook.com/OrbitAustralia#!/photo.php?pid=5128478&o=all&op=1&view=all&subj=114905342144&aid=-1&id=568397075&oid=114905342144)
Task 4: Favourite old tongue word (http://www.facebook.com/OrbitAustralia) can be seen on the main wall.

If you like them click the like button or leave a comment on FB as thats how I gain points:)(you need to like/join the orbit page first)

I'm also currently writing up a cage match between Bela and Betty the goat from SoT for another task. It's pretty lame:)

Any other aussies out there over 18 should sign up as the prize is every Orbit release for 2011.

I have no clue on the tat images, besides the fact that they should be glittery dragons with no legs. I added you as a friend on Facebook, since I can't like your pics any other way. I would suggest posting them on the Wheel of Time page if you can; I think anyone can like them there.

Oh, and I think I already welcomed you, but welcome again. ;)

Thx Terez and Bowlwomen. Didn't know about only friends being able to like them. Might have to ask Orbit about that as I only think likes and comments on there FB page will count.

On second thought I think you just need to like/join the orbit FB site first. No need to befriend me:)

There must be a good dragon image around somewhere::continues search::

As for the dragon tats, here are a few websites with info (mainly graphics/images that people drew themselves for costumes/artwork). You've probably already seen these, but if not, then hey, information!

http://www.aradanicostumes.com/articles/article_randalthor.php

http://images.elfwood.com/art/k/r/kruwart/rand_semismall.jpg

Here's a picture of RJ's dragon do-rag he used when he lost his hair. (Since DM is working on their site conversion, the full-size pic isn't available. If you need a bigger image, you might be able to get one from Jason or one of the other admins on DM.) You could probably copy this pretty closely and then you'd get extra style points for mimicking Jordan's fashion sense too:

And, don't forget Sweet's rendition on the cover of TGS. :D

Hello CW.

About the Dragons. I kinda like how they are drawn here http://wot.wikia.com/wiki/Rand_al%27Thor

But how to get then to be printed is a bit of problem. You can try here and see if it helps (the banner != the dragon tattoos, but in pinch...) http://wot.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Banner

Thanks guys. Here's the bela v betty fight (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?topic=15885&post=76848&uid=114905342144#post76848). It's kinda lame:) Make sure you watch the video:)

Re dragon tatts. Might just wear long sleaves and just have the head on the back of the hand. Should be easier.

Welcome!

I was able to like the pictures after liking the Orbit site.

Thank you Kindly:).

Some of my fellow competitors are playing foul. I pointed this out to Orbit and got this response.

you'll shortly see that Orbit has made their judgment. We think now that the game is afoot, that we are not able to rewrite the rules. But we feel your frustration!

For this year we can only suggest that you fight fire with fire. As you can see from some of the entrants they are having a conversation between themselves and one other person, so all you need is one ally to be play along.

Thank you so much for your participation in this competition, your entries have made me laugh.


A convo with just one other person would feel like cheating to me. I wouldn't object if you posted your favourite old tongue word or phrase in my Old Tongue post(on the main wall)though as that's in the spirit of the Quest. You will aslo see my response to Orbits ruling there. Feel free to nerd it up with me;)

Oh and I found a good dragon pic on the 13th depository to use.

Hey Caldazar,

Welcome to theoryland as well. I am a friend of Aan' allein / Aviendha at the wot bookforums.

You weren't the person who was related to Maria? Somehow caldazar sounds familiar. But that could also be just a name from the forums or wotmania.

regards, Isabel

HI Isabel,

don't know why you use 'Caldazar', but it refers to:
"Carai an Caldazar! Carai an Ellisande! Al Ellisande!" - For the honor of the Red Eagle! For the Honor of the Rose of the Sun! The Rose of the Sun!

"Carai an Caldazar! Carai an Ellisande! Al Ellisande!" - For the honor of the Red Eagle! For the Honor of the Rose of the Sun! The Rose of the Sun!
She used Caldazar as that was my username on the WoT.com forums. I'm pretty sure she knows what it means:).

Isabel, nope that wasn't me. I do remember the guy with a females name though.:p It's a pity they shut down that domain and moved the forum. Was a great place.:(

Yeah, I do know what Caldazar means :) Yeah it's a shame that forum closed down.
