Does the Nether remind you of the "The Ways" ? Not specifically how The Ways would look, but how it works.

Not at all. The Ways had no direct relevance to direction were as the Nether is directly tied to direction. The Nether is something like a 1 to 8 linear scale, could be wrong on actual scale sorry, but The Ways is almost random.

My roommates read them, but I never did. I heard about them quite a bit though, haha, probably why I chose to not bother reading them. That and there's so many, haha.

I love the Wheel of Time series. Only one more book to go and the series ends. But, to answer your question, no, it doesn't remind me of the ways. But, glad to know someone else has read his books :)

How it would work, yeah.

I actually thought of the ways when I was playing another game recently though.. .. Fast traveling in Darksiders... How they work and look (in my mind),lol. Except not as dark, as you can see in there without a bundle of lanterns to give you 10-15 feet.

Okay, you're right.

Still, I think he just meant it's quicker to use the nether to travel, just as it's quicker to use the ways. And you know, when you travel in either the ways or the nether, you run the risk of dying horribly or going mad. =P

Also glad to see fans of Wheel of Time. Gotta be my favorite books ever.
