I finished reading the first volume of The Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World, and I'd say the almost 800 pages of tight-packed text hold a great story inside.

I love people's reactions in The Wheel of Time series when they learn about/see Rand al'Thor's heron-mark sword (given to him by his father), which "are traditionally presented to those who have earned the title of "Blademaster"". I liked it when Rand didn't know what the heron meant but everyone else did, and I like it now when he knows but can't live up to the mark - not yet anyway.
Label(s): the wheel of time

Diablo 2 was released in 2000, and its expansion, Lord of Destruction, in 2001. Sacred was released 2004, four years after D2. That's a long time to look and learn how a great action rpg is done. What did you do during that time, Ascaron? 'Cause Sacred surely ain't a good game.

I decided give a try to Icewind Dale (and Heart of Winter/Trials of the Luremaster) solo run (i.e. one character only). So far everything has gone quite well with my elven fighter/mage/thief. I'm currently in Wyrm's Tooth, just about to take out the frost giants.
