I'll be at DragonCon. I normally volunteer.

I just wish Jennifer had space on her staff. I'd love to work the WoT track.

While I want to be there, it's just not financially possible for me to take a solo trip out to Atlanta. This year, as I'm sure it is with many, has turned out to be tighter than years past. No fun secondary trips for the upcoming tour either, which is a bummer.

Although I will be at JordanCon next year.

Sorry I won't be seeing you at DragonCon this year.

@Yellowbeard and Hopper - would you guys like to form a trivia team with me and Marie? I think we are the only Theorylanders going (assuming Gelb is going).

I won the trivia bee again. I also got Brandon to draw on my certificate. I said he could draw whatever he wanted - a funny face or something - so he started out with that, and it became this:



I love the harp.

Hey Terez, if you see BS, Maria or Alan, I have a question for one of them: back in tEotW/tGH why did the Horn have to be brought to Illian?

Ill take a shot at that one since it is mentioned in the books. Moiraine wanted Rand to have the Illianers united in support of him and thought that him bringing the Horn there would help accomplish that goal.

But that does not explain at all why everyone seemed to link the Horn and Illian together already. Why was the Hunt only called from Illian?

Yeah, turns out I'd lent a buddy my copy of tEotW and he just returned it on Saturday and I've been skimming through it, and one of the things that impressed me was all the mentions of Illian.

Politically, yes, it would have been good for Rand to have Illian's support, but is there something else here? As Gonzo queries, why is the Hunt for the Horn, always called from Illian? It could be nothing, it could be a RAFO from afar. I'm just curious, or perhaps it's all the Great Hunt references currently going on with the chapter hunt et al.

Yeah, I tweeted on the drive to DCon that I had reconsidered Illian. I'll go into it more later - I'm on the drive home now.

Do you have Twitter, SBX? It's definitely the best place to ask Brandon questions like that, though Maria doesn't use it for that purpose. He will be taking questions again after the tour, though I suspect he would RAFO this one.
