For the theory with an abundance of information to prove a simple point.

Default Heh! Anyone remember this deathless prose?

All named people are posters from the old days..

"A Game of Stones

The library at the Queen's Blessing Inn in Camelyn was a cozy room, with a warm fire in the hearth, on the early winter afternoon. John Snow was browsing through the bookshelf, while Dragon Thief and Uno concentrated over the stones board. Uno frowned, as he seemed to be making the better moves, yet strangely his stones kept disappearing, losing him territory he thought he had solidly under control. "I can't understand it," he muttered. "The Theif can't play stones worth beans, but he keeps beating me."
"What's this?" John Snow remarked. "Our copy of James Joyce's "Finnigans Wake" isn't here. Did somebody borrow it?"
Dragon Thief snickered, and Uno looked up. Watcher, who had been leaning against the small library bar, polishing wineglasses and watching the stones game, grinned. Rubbing a bruised spot on his mostly bald head, he replied, "Well, actually, we used it to trap a Youngling. You remember how the hedgehog ter'angreal trapped Faile? We did the same thing with Finnegans Wake. Handed it to Valiant, told him he'd enjoy reading it. Off he goes to his room, opens the book, and bam! We haven't seen him since."
Snow chuckled. "Wonder who'll come and rescue _him_? Say, what's all this outside with the green?" Snow was looking out the window that gave a view of the streets in front of the inn. Camaris rose from his easy chair in the corner and ambled over, clanking quietly. "What do you mean, Elder?"
"Well, I just got into town from Baerlon, and politics have always been beyond me anyway, but I don't think green was such a fashionable color."
"Oh, that. If you wrap your sword or wear an armband or a hat decoration in green, that indicates your support for the Younglings. Lot of 'em out there, eh?"
Snow gazed out and it seemed every other passer was a Youngling. "where are they all coming from, are other cities throwing them out?"
Uno lifted his gaze from the board, and remarked, "We wouldn't have let 'em into Norway, that's for sure." While his eyes were off the board, Snow noticed Dragon Thief quickly remove a few strategic stones of Uno's from the board.
"They did realize that green traditionally is a sign of inexperience, don't they?" queried Snow.
"Not likely," sighed Camaris. "They just plunge into everything with no thought."
"Doggone it, I just don't understand!" muttered Uno, staring hard at the stones board.
"Hold on, what's that?" Watcher pointed toward a corner of the public square outside the inn.
Uno craned his neck to look out the window, and a few more stones disappeared under Dragon Thief's quick hands. "That's the doctrinaire bunch, guys. The guy on the soapbox, in the green robe, calls himself Dullness Lousyweather, or some such."
The man referred to harangued the crowds, pointing to a large book in his hands. "And the book he thinks so important?", asked Snow.
"Something called 'Words of the Creator'," replied Uno with a sneer. "I could put anything in that book and he'd believe it if it were in there, and use the pokkers book to beat me over the head"
"Pokkers?" queried Snow.
"Sorry," Uno grinned. "That's a bad word where I come from. In the same family as 'helvetes' "
Musing over that while continuing to look out the window, Snow noticed Layla sliding along the walls on the opposite side of the street. She appeared to have a young woman along with her. They sidled along the street behind the ranting preacher, and even from where he stood Snow could see Layla measuring the distance to Dullweather and touching her knives longingly. Then she seemed to sigh, and continued stealthily, all but unseen by the noisy crowd of greens. Then both women seemed to disappear for a moment, and an instant later the front door of the inn let in some of the noise as it opened and shut again quickly. Then Layla was standing in the door of the library, taking a deep breath and looking around. "Ha, quite a crowd. Let me present our newest addition, Eilonwy." Everyone in the room turned, bowed greetings to the young woman with Layla.
There was a bit of commotion behind Layla, and Moonshadow and Reanne came through, carrying trays covered with napkins. They were both wearing scandolously cut Domani dresses, although Reanne also wore a dagger around her neck. Snow scratched his beard as he attempted vainly to remember what the jewels and color of the handle of Reanne's dagger meant, but gave it up in confusion. Watcher began lining up mugs and pouring mulled wine, fragrant with cloves, orange and some other unidentifiable spices, into heavy mugs. "Okay, looks like the baking is done. It's a batch of Moonshadow's special muffins!" Moonshadow and Reanne whipped the napkins off the trays, showing platters of muffins still steaming from the oven. "Be careful. The ones on this tray are chocolate," she said smiling. A wolf's howl was suddenly heard from the rear of the inn. "Goldeneyes," whispered Moonshadow, the light reflecting yellow from her own eyes. "Don't let him near this," Dragon Thief warned as he did his best to corner the chocolate muffins.
A small window in space snapped open in the center of the room, with an odd flag logo floating in the middle of it. An obnoxious little tune played for a moment, then a well-balanced throwing dagger flew through the window and thudded into the decoratively carved head of the chair in which Dragon Thief was seated, narrowly missing his left ear. Dragon Thief managed to suppress a start, although he turned noticeably paler. The strange window whirred, blinked to a another odd sign about okay to turn off, then winked out. Dragon Thief gingerly plucked the dagger out of the wood, noticed a roll of paper wrapped around the handle, and untied it. He read, then grinned, and announced, "Okay, here it is. Garet Jax says I can borrow his pub for our meeting. Gathering is to be on the old board."
With comments of "Excellent" and "About time", and "What happened to my stones that were over there?", the others prepared to move to the gathering site."

Default Or this one?

A Little Tea with Goldie

John Snow ascended to the roof of his lodgings in Tar Valon to check the pigeon cotes for mail. A couple of bedraggled birds sat there, with even more bedraggled message cylinders still attached to their legs. He blinked, frowned, and removed the cylinders from each, and poured some bird seed (of which he had an ample supply in his pantry) into the food bowls. The pigeons began pecking away hungrily, scattering seed messily while doing so, and Snow opened the message cylinders. What was this? Mid-Winters’ greetings written in his own hand! But this was the note he had originally sent to Moonshadow, now Mistress of Novices, in Tear all that time ago. Quickly he cracked open the other cylinder. Egad! His greeting note to the Dark Amyrlin herself, Frenzy, at her abode in Falme. Both messages were stamped with cryptic notations: “Unknown addressee” “Message Refused”. Message refused? What had he done to anger the wolfsister? Nothing came to mind, although perhaps that remark about witches......no, surely she wasn’t that touchy. Noting that the immediate area was getting even more messy as the pigeons continued their meal, he went back down the stairs into his quarters. Relaxing on a blue couch with a book on Legends of the Age of Legends was Lanfear, the young Forsaken who is actually a teenager who was a member of the Circle of Ages, the close-knit group dedicated to the restoration of Theoryland.
“Umm, Lanfear, do we have to have quite so many pigeons? They’re kind of messy, and I wonder if the cats won’t get them.”
“Oh, don’t worry, Elder. The cats get enough to eat with the mice, and the pigeons have them intimidated. They’ll leave them alone.” She replied absent-mindedly.
“Well, one reason for the mice might be all the seed the pigeons scatter. Would you mind cleaning it up?”
“Sure, just a little later,” she murmured, still buried in her book.
“Look, Lanfear – our greetings to Frenzy and Moonshadow came back.” Snow changed the subject resignedly.
“What – with my nice picture and everything? What can we do? Buttered onions! Bloody pigeon-mail!”
“Watch your language – dunno, guess we’ll have to remail them – but those birds are pretty pooped.”
“Okay, okay, I’ll clean up.” Lanfear snapped.
“No, I meant they looked tired,” Snow said with a sly grin, “but don’t let that stop you..”
“Listen, Elder, I think there’s some kind of ter’angreal in the Tower basement for sending messages instantaneously,” Lanfear said, ignoring the Elder’s previous remark. “Let’s go take a look.”
Snow and Lanfear found their way into the dusty sub-basements of the Tower. “You know, I think there might be some instructional aids in here, too, Lanfear. I’m really having problems with that novice class.”
Lanfear pulled a long rod of the shelf with a wicked grin. “How about this, Professor? A cattle prod, it’s called. Would that be helpful with some of your students?”
“Don’t even think it. Tamyrlin would have my hide.” Snow looked shocked. “But still, a little pain can help the process, so Moonshadow says.” He scratched his beard pensively. “Not quite sure what she means, but it’s a thought.”
“Yes, well, pocketbooks might be a place those Younglings could be hurt.” Lanfear noted absently. She was staring at an oddly twisted frame, seemingly made of black stone and free-standing. The sides of the frame were marked with circles, each with a letter of the alphabet next to it. At the top was an inscription in the Old Tongue, which Snow squinted at. It seemed to mean “Seven Days of the End”. Hmmm. Snow scratched his beard. That didn’t sound right. Ah. “Finals Week”. That was it. Snow pulled his tweed jacket a little closer as the breeze drafted around him.
Wait a minute! This is a sub-basement! There is no draft or breeze. “Lanfear,” he shouted, “It’s the White Wind!” Lanfear whirled, and dove away from the doorway. Too late, as the White Wind, a howling negative force, sucked her into the frame, and screaming, she disappeared. In the sound of the Wind, Snow could hear cackling voices. “Bring three sharp number two pencils. Calculators are not allowed. Your term papers are due the week after exams” and the like. Tormented voices of evil. The Wind went silent, and Snow realized it would be at least a week before Lanfear could return, and she would likely be drained by the torments beyond that doorframe. He sighed, and moved on through the storage rooms. His eyes fell upon a shelf of gaming paraphernalia – dice, cards, and the like, and he began to chuckle as an idea came over him for the novice class that was tormenting him so. He selected several of the items, stuffing them into the pockets of his rumpled tweed jacket. Forgetting about the instant mail device he had originally come down there to search for, he headed back up the stairs to his office.

Snow stood in front of the seated group of novices. “Now then, grasp the Source as you have been taught, and allow a small flow to bring to life a flame at your fingertip.” AS he talked, he demonstrated with a small blue flame dancing from a finger, being careful in his choice of flows and fingers. Some of these Younglings were amazingly quick to take offence.
“Oh, come on, I’ve been doing this stuff for years, I can handle the Source as well or better than you so-called Elders.” Tremul sneered from his spot and other Youngling heads nodded in agreement around the room. “Watch this.” A flame the size of a serious Bunsen burner appeared over each of Tremul’s fingers, and then he drew his hands slowly together.
“I wouldn’t do it quite that way...” Snow frowned, and suddenly there was a loud Foooom! as air rushed into the coalesced flames and the resulting ball collapsed. In the afterflash, the other novices could see Tremul covered with soot, looking very much like Wiley Coyote after another encounter with an ACME product. Tremul glared around the room, daring the other Younglings to even snicker.
“Umm, yes, very well, let’s consider the element of chance in the Weaving of the Pattern.” Snow attempted to smooth over the embarrassment. “Now, the laws of probability are such that if a series of events are independent, then by definition what happened previously does not affect the outcome.”
“Just a minute, Professor. What about the Law of Large Numbers?” Bela raised a hoof.
“What law is that, Bela?” asked the Professor in puzzlement.
“Why, Professor – if an event occurs often enough, then even the rare outcomes will happen. It’s like when you’re gambling and have a string of bad luck. Sooner or later your luck will turn.” said Brighton from the back of the room.
“Do you all believe that?” asked Snow with a small sly smile.
As heads nodded around the room, Snow, grinning inwardly, pulled a deck of cards and a box of chips from the pockets of his tweed jacket. “Well, then, would anybody care for a little – game of chance?”
Chairs were eagerly scraped across the floor as the students joined around the table. “You do have – gold, don’t you?” Snow asked with a cocked eyebrow. “That makes the rules of , umm, chance, more interesting.
“Of course, Professor – we’ve managed to keep thieves from stealing it by having chocolate in our other pockets – then the fool theif leaves the gold alone.”
“I see – clever tactic, that.” Snow replied.
And by the way, watch your spelling – it’s ‘thief’” commented Gilshalos. “Not that I care about him.”
.................................................. ....................

Frenzy and Moonshadow strode down the halls of Theoryland, all senses alert. There was a rumor that the Naeblis, Tsoroven m’hael was back and posting. Passing the novice classrooms, they suddenly halted with a jerk, and stared into Prof. Snow’s novice class. The entire group of Younglings were lounging around the table, mugs of ale and pipes in hand, playing cards by all appearances. And Prof. Snow had by far the biggest stack of gold in front of him. Frenzy and Moonshadow stood gaping. This is how Elder Snow instructs novices? And why was Tremul all sooty?
Snow noticed them, jumped slightly, and winked with the eye away from the students. “Elder Snow, ummm, what is this?”
“Well, the novices here are learning about the Laws of Chance. Learning quite a lot about the Laws of Chance, in fact” Snow grinned.
“And the Law of Large Numbers says my turn is coming,” Bela added excitedly.
“Okay, so maybe some are learning a little more slowly,” admitted Snow. “But it’s a very practical lesson.” he said as he restacked his coins garnered in the last hand.
“I see, “ said the Mistress of Novices faintly. “Um, very well, Elder, carry on.”
Snow waved his hand and puffed out another cloud of smoke from his pipe as he contentedly looked at the cards just dealt him.
“Interesting teaching technique,” commented Frenzy as the two continued down the hall, thoroughly bemused.
Moonshadow shook her head in bewildered agreement. “I think we can expect Snow to stand us a round of beer tonight, though. Did you see the cash he was pulling in? I wonder how come the Ferret hadn’t lifted it?”
At the next cross-hall, a sudden racket to the right drew their attention. A group of Newbies, so newly arrived they hadn’t even yet put on the white, surrounded a man dressed in black and red who was shouting in capital letters. “I WILL HAVE RESPECT! I AM THE NAEBLIS OF THEORYLAND! KNEEL BEFORE THE NAEBLIS! YOU KNOW NOTHING!”
“Oh-oh, there he is.” The two swiftly walked up to him. “Uh, Tsoro, could we have a word with you,” chimed Frenzy.
“VERY WELL. THESE IDIOT NEWBIES BORE ME.” he replied.
“And could you moderate your tone just a bit,” asked Moonshadow sweetly, fingering her whip.
He stared at her a moment. “Oh, all right – but the time has passed for restraint – and I expect you Chosen to join me.”
“Well, yes, Tsoro, we’re having a planning session over on Moonshadow’s bored board. Would you join us?” Frenzy asked.
“OF COURSE – ahem – Of course I should be there,” replied the Naeblis, and the two women led him down the hall, through a series of odd passages, and to an odd wooden portal. There was an inscription at the bottom: “Door by Layla De Cogan Chin”.
“HMMM, LAYLA. HAVEN”T SEEN HER IN A WHILE.” mused Tsoroven loudly.
“Right behind you, Sir Bootlicker.”
Tsoraven jumped, and whirled. “SHEEP SWALLOP, LAYLA, YOU’RE AS BAD AS THE BLOODY THEIF. I MEAN THIEF.”
“Thank you, Tsoro – I think. Anyway, here’s where the meeting is. You first.”
The three women sent each other hopeful glances behind Tsoroven m’hael’s back. He stepped through the door –
And found himself in large room, with windows opening on blackness, large hearths at either end of the room that gave off no heat, and furnished only with a couch and a chair. Seated in the couch was the golden-eyed Chosen, Golden-Eyes. His golden eyes caught the light from the fires and gleamed at Tsoraven.
“What is this, Goldie? This doesn’t look like any meeting” He whirled to the door, pulled it open, leapt through it – and found himself in the same room, with Golden Eyes still looking at him.
“You won’t escape so easily, Tsoraven. Sit down on the couch – make yourself comfortable. We have some ... issues to .. work though”. The tone in Golden Eyes’ voice, and his smile chilled Tsoraven m’hael, and with fear beginning to seep into him he eased himself reluctantly onto the couch. Goldeneyes lifted a teapot from the side table by his chair, poured a cup, and handed it to the Naeblis. “Here. A soothing cup of herbal tea will help.....”. Tsorovan numbly accepted the tea and began to sip.

We need to update that list. Most of that stuff has to do with people who haven't been here in 10 years.

I remember Else, and Brighton, and hamsters and probably could have named the Chosen at some point.

I remember Else, and Brighton, and hamsters and probably could have named the Chosen at some point.
I think there was a list somewhere. Seem to remember there only being about 6 or 7 people that still post.

Goldeneyes throws a post our way on occasion, I suppose, so that's seven.
My, I must have a good memory. I would rep you for pointing that out, but 1) you don't accept bribes, and 2) you're not a real person anyway.

Pfft, I was a horrible poster to pick for that mistake. Statistics was the only math I actually did enjoy.

There was a story about this. I don't quite remember it, but I seem to recall that Infinite Monkey was pivotal.

That's kind of the point. We've been here too long.

Only ones on that list I even have an idea of are the following:

~ you still shudder at the thought of a hamster attack.
I know the hampsters got ahold of the ezBoards a few times. Not sure if that's where it originated, however.
~ you can actually follow a lengthy conversation with John Snow.
Define lengthy.
~You always keep a wary eye out for penguins.
Only penguin I remember is DT's avatar...
~ you've actually posted on the Scholars' Board.
Yup. Doubtful for the reason that it was created for, however.
~ you've ever encountered Belafire.
Have encountered threats about belafire, but have never encountered it meself. I do know that the 'couch is bale and belafire proof. (and therefore, by extension, everything else proof) helped me out a few times...
~ you've actually been in a Theoryland chat.
*looks at signature* Yup. Member of the TCA, and official TCA Lab rat.
~ you know not to drink the wine.
Not necessarily wine, but I had ta use my one free Zae healing for the Kaf...

Bastard.

Indeed.

Violin, isn't it?

As the original bounty-offering authority, I do not think I can collect it.

Yes, but that's a long time ago.

-You threaten your children with tsovoranmhaelnaeblis. And I say it in lower case, to boot (pun intended).

-You threaten your children with Luthor Blood. No idea on this one.

-A lunar eclipse makes you wonder about the safety of young women.
-A solar eclipse makes you wonder about the safety of sheep. Assuming both are about Eclipse trying to "Behold" something he shouldn't, although typically i'm the butt end of sheep jokes. (Pun intended again! Whammy!)

-You ever actually use the phrase, "Deliciously Saucy." - Eclipse?

-You pray to the Book of Ivhon. I'm actually hoping it gets made into a reality show. Infidel could direct, and it would be awesome.

-You jump into a puddle hoping to hurt Raen. I remember Raen Mhael, but not the puddle reference.

-You have said on multiple occasions, "I don't like this new wave of newbies". Not as politely as that. Swear words may have had a minor involvement.

-You feel the WOW. I try not too, it's contagious. It was a cult by Jalyn/JennIvhon/Sdog, no? Maybe even Gaul?

-You see a Toyota Tercel and immediately start kicking it. Was Tercel bad? I remember the name, not much else.


-You see a lame duck and ask, Who are you?!!? Is it Insane? Fear the wrath of the Duck One.


-When you see a writing error, you look for Gil or Bela to correct the situation. Gil more so than Bela, iirc. She was the (S)Ex Teacher, after all.

-You read the Shayol Ghul Gazette with your morning coffee. With my morning Mountain Dew, of course.

-You see a book on lizards at the local bookstore and it frightens you. Itty bitty lizards with bad breath.

-You ever actually use the phrase, "Deliciously Saucy." Eclipse?

- you've ever harnessed the power of the TP. Not so much harnessed as placed it on the proper roll dispenser.

Not the Infinite type, but of the demon-spawn college-roomie type, yes.

- you are a follower of the Great Goat, or know someone who is.I was the Prophet of the Lord High Goat, Stubborn Be His Name.

- someone keeps *borrowing* your fancloth.Wouldn't that kind of be cheating if I answered yes?

- you've ever walked the Path of Badgers.I was browbeaten on it a few times.

- you have your very own Official Theoryland Banana LoungeYep, a First Edition Collector's one at that.

- you have an irrational fear of penguins.Damn straigh, Beer filching bastards! Doobeedoobeedoo!

- you know better than to drink the wine. Of course. Deer shrooms are bad in wine.

- you're convinced Moiraine will return as a ghost. I was never that dumb. I'm as smart as a two-souler can be. Er, wait.

- you use words like "curmudgeonly" on a regular basis
Sounds like a Snow-ism to me.

- whenever the board is down, you curse the hamsters Hamster-hating, since 1999.

- you've ever seen a deer eating shrooms. Eating, picking, trying to sell, Aram was good about that.

- you've ever had your boots licked. Do I look like Frenzy to you?

- you've ever encountered Else. Many of them.

- you've ever had a run-in with Belafire (trust me, if you haven't, you don't want to) Only in a prophetical sense.

- you're a veteran of the Battle of the Boards I was a commanding officer in it.

- you think Sammael was in Baerlon :lol Nope!

- you've ever named the Dumb One I remember the monker, but who was it for? Did it rhyme with Boda?

- you've met all of the Theoryland Chosen Met and plotted with. I mentored some Dark Asses (Associates) too.

- "G for G!" means anything to you Gilshalos for Greet, you spot-stealing Mad Mule!

- anyone asking "Do you know when the next book comes out?" drives you into an incoherent rage It comes out a week ago from a span’s time less than a turn ahead of now.

- you've ever said "srue you!" Sure, I’ve said Srue. And been srued at too.

- you got an honorable mention in the War of the Hundred Posters Mention, yes. Honorable, likely not so much.

- you've ever had to argue against (or for) the infamous 1.5 souls theory Camaris did that to spite me, I swear it.

- you remember haplo's puppy It was named Trolloc Chow!

~ you remember when it was based in Geocities. Born & Raised!

~ you still shudder at the thought of a hamster attack. Shudder.

~ you know who the Tsunami Squirrel is. Well, I did make (steal) the moniker. Silly steel-toed females and their monthly forces of nature.

~ you can name the Baker Sisters and their culinary specialty. Chani Moonshadow, Reanne something-or-other, and Muffins. Mighty good muffins.

~ you never name the Dumb One. Again? Also Rhymes with Told Ya?

~ you've ever had an argument with Brighton Merriweather. Unfortunately.

~ you've actually posted on the Scholars' Board. Used to.

~ you know the definition of "srue" and can use it in a sentence. Srue me, you asked it again!

~ you know not to drink the wine. Nasty stuff, that.

~ you fought in the Battle of the Boards (or helped start it). CEO of the Dark Side.
