He said anyone at his signing tonight should guess a WoT character who will get their first POV in AMOL. I told people to guess Taim or Logain since they're the most likely, but I wonder if he meant 'only the one I happen to be thinking of'.

The site seems to be up and maybe even working already:http://brandonsanderson.com/thegreathunt

What timezone? Also, are you guys still on DST or not?

It's looking like the clues are something about Brandon's books...but the criteria for the clues are WoT-related things. Assuming he sticks to the same criteria-type things. He wasn't exactly consistent on it last time, but he might have a plan this time.

Any reason those two are the most likely other than that we expected a Black Tower scene/plot line in ToM and didn't get one?

Because both seem to be set up for it. Certainly a lot of fans want to see a POV from one or the other, probably more than anyone else. We've had POVs from most important people. It could be that RJ was planning on never doing a Taim or Logain POV, though.

Peter said on Twitter that all the clues are WoT-related, so we need to keep up with them. How about this - I don't expect Frenzy to keep up with this, since it's a lot of work, so how about those of us who can just edit Frenzy's OP when necessary to keep a running tab of the clues? They need to be in the OP so that Brandon or whoever can link to it and people can see what all the clues are without reading the whole thread.

Terez 11-08-2011 10:31 PM

Okay, I thought I posted about this earlier, but apparently not. So that we can have a place to link people for all this info, I figured this thread would do, so I just added it to Frenzy's post. I hope that's okay - if not, I'll move it to another thread. But this way others can help.



eta: it's good :) --Frenzy

Awesome. I just added a bunch of info, mostly from Peter's tweets. Still waiting to hear back from this dude who supposedly got the code. He's coming across a bit jerkish at the moment.

fdsaf3 11-09-2011 12:28 PM

Suggestion: should this thread be stickied?

WinespringBrother 11-09-2011 02:39 PM

Brandon has updated his blog with a post about The Great Hunt, including the reveal, which looks AWESOME!!!

Hey Terez. You probably don't remember me, but we met last year in Provo, if I recall correctly. It was a really quick introduction.
That's not why I'm posting, though. I happened to be standing in line behind the guy that guessed Tam the other night and I got a picture of the clue. What will be the best way to get it to you? It's on my phone, and it's pretty easy for me to upload to facebook, but let me know.

If you could post it here for everyone, that would be awesome. I've never been to Provo though!

You bet. The code is FORSAKEN EVENTS.

Hmm, I met a site admin. I thought it was you. Guess not. :)

Well, it might have been Frenzy, though I think she had attended. Maybe it was Jenn from Dragonmount; I'm pretty sure she was there. Anyway, thanks so much for saving the first code for us!

Index for Robert Jordan's notes?
 
I'm wondering if based on Brandon's tweet that he did not 'write' the codes if the codes are sections of Jordan's notes. Topic headers, maybe, or something similar.

Terez 11-09-2011 05:18 PM

Yeah, that was my thought. I will brainstorm some more later; for now I have to attend a GA.

Terez 11-09-2011 06:50 PM

Someone found Brandon at the airport - the second code is TREES BY COUNTRY. I'll update the details in a little bit with tweets.

The Angry Druid 11-09-2011 08:42 PM

Excited. This is getting my back into fantasy mode.

My enthusiasm took a bit of a hit with no BT plotline in ToM (and other issues), and then Martin's Dance with Dragons.

Hoping 2012 will be much better. And I'm certain it will be.

I'm thinking the guess about the clues being Jordan's (or Harriet's, or BS's) section titles for notes is on the money.

Forsaken Events
Tress by Country.

Show us the breadth and scope of events RJ kept notes on. From the large impactful doing of the Forsaken, to the close up world detail of the types of trees in each nation.

I'd expect the others to be somewhere in-between.

List of Darkfriends. AS/WF/Aiel/Damane and Asha'man OP strength lists. Cities and towns by country. Known blademasters. Lists of Ter'angreal and their forms and functions. List of angreal and sa'angreal and their forms. How were AS raised in the AOL.

Anything. Of course, we aren't going to get a list of DF's before the final book comes out, but Verin's was a good start.
