Anyone else want to know what happens after the Last Battle?

Anyone else obsessed with wondering what awaits us in the coming Ages?

Anyone wonder about the elusive Age before the Age of Legends? A time of Nym, Portal Stones, Heroes, ancient Talents, war and Channelers?

I've been a huge fan of the WoT for 15 years, and writing WoT fanfiction for 12 years, and am excited to announce the grand opening of a play-by-post RP site set in The First Age -- the Age before the Age of Legends.

You are invited to play a reborn 'god' - the channelers of The First Age, an Atharim - the distant descendants (or ancestors?) of the Aiel, a prophet with abilities to foretell the future, a wolfkin, or other classes of character.

We are set in 2045 at the beginning of the First Age -- the Age of Awakening -- shortly after the rebirth of the first channeler, a man named Nikolai Brandon who is being used by the Wheel to drive the Pattern back into balance. Massive changes await the world, especially when World War III looms on the horizon.

My concept for the evolution of the ages, in this particular revolution of the Wheel, are as thus:

2nd Age - Age of Legends

3rd Age - Age of Illusions (the WoT books)

4th Age - the Age of Heroes (post Last Battle peace and prosperity)

5th Age - the Age of Gods (channelers are worshiped like deities; their stories are the mythology of our time)

6th Age - the Age of Escape (the horrors of the godwars, channeler is eradicated)

7th Age - the Age of Industry (A channeler free world, civilizations emerge)

1st Age - the Age of Awakening (rebirth of channelers, the "gods" of our mythology)

Much more detail about the events in each Age in this particular revolution of the Wheel may be viewed on http://thefirstage.org/ages!

So the question becomes, what happens between the 1st and 2nd Ages to eradicate all notion of war and crime, and channelers, the Aes Sedai, come to be revered, honorable servants of humanity?!? How do the Aiel come to serve them so wholeheartedly in return? Who were the people who wrote the Prophecies of the Dragon? There is so much to discover in The First Age!!

Actually, those Prophecies were not written in the First Age at all. They were written by one or more AS during the Breaking, in what was technically the Third Age.
