I'm thinking that we can turn this into a word-for-word description from the books, where we include the description from each book, assuming that they change. For example, in the first book, Rand is described as "A young farmer and sheepherder from the Two Rivers." - whereas it obviously changes later on in the book. This way, we could see the progression of the descriptions, and to be honest, it would just be pretty interesting. I would list which book the description first appeared in (if it doesn't change) and the description from each book where it changes. So if Rand's description is the same for EotW and TGH, but changes in TDR, and then remains the same until, say, PoD, then we'll have three descriptions listed, one from EotW, one from TDR, and one from PoD. You can see how they would be differentiated in the page now, where I have the "Eye of the World" descriptions listed. --Jeffan Caliarthan 13:43, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

It's kinda interesting to see how a description can differ by one word. :P I don't plan on adding a whole 'nother description just for one word, though. --Jeffan Caliarthan 13:49, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Interesting idea. It might also help with the book character lists, which will be something similar--Toral, Department Director and subsupreme overlord 14:46, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

So I've scrapped this idea. It's getting a tad too cluttered and it's just becoming a hassle. However, I am going to write up the glossaries from each individual book, and I was thinking that for each term listed in the glossary, the book description can go on their library page. If we want to include the ones specific to each book, that'd be pretty cool. Basically just another section on a page. --Jeffan Caliarthan 21:22, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Is it alright if I go ahead and undo all of my previous edits? --Jeffan Caliarthan 21:26, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

sure, go ahead

Is there a better title for this than “book glossaries”? Or I’d that what it is - just the terms from the glossaries at the back of the books?--Toral, Archivist and Supreme overlord (talk) 09:53, 14 April 2019 (PDT)
