I'm reading the Eye of the World series. I'm maybe 30% through the first book. Or rather, the series is The Wheel of Time, and I'm about a third of the way through The Eye of The World. I think Rand's gonna end up being a Warder or whatever for the girl he's been crushing on who wants to be a Aes Sedai.
Also, I'm sure that DragonAge designers read at least this book, if not this series. Although, it's a common theme, Good VS Evil, a taint (not that kind, jerks), an order of protectors. Whatever. Maybe I should play DragonAge again. I loved it the first run through, just sometimes it's hard to play those kinds of games once I know some of the endings.
Yeah, I'm a nerd.
