message 1: by Jenna, I'd be free if not for Temper & Edgewalker (new)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4603 comments Mod
The best fighters? The most trustworthy? Who would you put on your shield wall?

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 8082 comments Mod
1. Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun



2. Onos T'oolan



3. Kaladin and Sly




So in summary a giant, an undead and a guy who has super powers through his sprenn. I like to stack the deck in my favor. :)

1. Ka-poel (Promise of Blood)

2. I also want Tool (Gardens of the Moon)

3. Hadrian (Theft of Swords)


message 4: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan How about the following,

[1] A howling, frigid north wind that freezes your enemies solid, followed by...

[2] A sonic boom of terrible proportions focused upon the massed ranks of frozen opponents, producing a mass shattering into blood colored fragments of ice, followed by....

[3] A volcanic eruption of hot, liquid magma that melts said ice cubes.... (Hehehehe... snort!)

If I can't have that, than I want....

[1] Superman, what better than Kal-el from the planet Krypton. After all, I've never seen him truly lose, and he can be resurrected from the dead.

[2] Is a bit of a toss-up between Count Dracula and the Batman, because I'm looking for a night operations specialist.... ahhh... I'll go with Batman - slightly more trustworthy and will team well with Superman.

[3] Dr Strange, equipped with the time-based infinity stone. That will stuff up any opposing force right quick, or perhaps slow, or even reversely if there is such a word... (Frowns, scurries off to the lower library stacks to search dictionaries of obscure and lost words...)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3613 comments Kaladin Stormblessed

Anomander Rake

Joscelin Verreuil.


message 6: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
I second Veronica's ^


message 7: by Bill (last edited Jul 16, 2018 01:07PM) (new)

Bill | 2150 comments Kaladin - he shows his skills in a shield wall with the bridge battle.

Inda - he can definitely hold his own.

Quick Ben - figure the first two are so good that Ben can just hang out a step behind and rock everyone with magic.

I was thinking about Joscelin too but he tells Imriel that his fighting style wouldn’t work well in a shield wall.

Kaladin Stormblessed
Anomander Rake
Quick Ben

Hahahaha

Time to google who is Joscelin Verreuil.


message 11: by Miche (new)

Miche | 3175 comments Kushiel! No surprise there. I must start this one soon...

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
Hey it's not our fault they also happen to be beautiful. They can "guard my wall" any day... 😂😂

message 14: by Bill (new)

Bill | 2150 comments Lol. So many inappropriate responses spring to mind.


message 15: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Muhahahaha, I succeeded in corrupting my entire team :D :D :D


message 16: by Scott , Karsa Orlong (new)

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 8082 comments Mod
I think Niki has to at least finish GotM before she's allowed to select a Malazan character.

I'm going to have to suspend myself from the forum if I don't leave this thread.

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
That moment where you remember you're a MOD on a public forum and should probably keep the dirty jokes to a minimum. Probably.

I'm living vicariously through Virginie.


message 19: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
Lmao I see you share the sentiment, Scott.


message 20: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
You're probably right about the Malazan thing, but I'm feeling an instalove thing with Rake.

It will only grow. He's one of my bromances from the series and there's dozens of them.

Niki Hawkes wrote: "Lmao I see you share the sentiment, Scott."

Share? No. Blame you? Yes. That was serving up a slow pitch of epic proportions.

Guilty. 😬😁

It is all Virginie's fault! 😉

She worked very hard and the results are showing. 😂😂😂

Haha, I was just going to write these three guys down :)

Well, he has a big magical sword...;) lol

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
I can’t hear shield wall without thinking of Uhtred son of Uhtred


message 26: by Margret, Caladan Brood Face (new)

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
Wayne from Mistborn era 2. He could infiltrate the enemy lines easily

Gandalf because if I fuck it up, #eagles #bitches

Vin from Mistborn, because she could really rain destruction with all that metal

Pretty sure there's a reason we didn't put that in the rules ;)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3613 comments Margret wrote: "I can’t hear shield wall without thinking of Uhtred son of Uhtred"

He almost made my list. He'd be my first sub in.


message 30: by Miche (new)

Miche | 3175 comments Bea and Jenna, high five!

I am! I really am! I knew you belonged in our team, Bea! :D


message 34: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments (I'm building myself such a reputation in this group... O_O)


message 35: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan Can we have a bench as well, for someone to swap in if someone needs a rest.

I'd have Lady Envy resting on my bench.

Haha, that's great! Eagles solve every problem!
(Given that I don't have Gandalf on my team I hope Anomander will carry me out if it should become necessary)

I'm pretty sure she knows how to coddle up tired warriors ;)


message 37: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan She's had a millennium of practice, and is pretty much a one woman army.


message 38: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5048 comments I would go with:

- Hadrian (Theft of Swords)
- Kaladin (The Way of Kings)
- Logan Ninefingers (The Blade Itself)

And with Camaris (The Dragonbone Chair) on my bench :)

Shield wall made me think of First Law immediately, I'm a little shocked I'm all alone 😅


message 39: by Beste (new)

Beste | 1163 comments Kaladin
Locke(optional)
Hadrian(optional)
Rand
Ka-poel

There's probably 5 more I can't think right now :)


message 40: by Simi (new)

Simi Sunny | 73 comments My top three warriors that will help shield the wall are Jane McKeene (Dread Nation), Henrietta Howel (Kingdom on Fire series), and Cinder (Lunar Chronicles). And hey, maybe we could all hang out if there's no threat ^-^


message 41: by Scott , Karsa Orlong (new)

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 8082 comments Mod
If it was a crusade Uhtred would be #1 so he could fling insults at the nailed god's followers.


message 42: by Slick (new)

Slick | 94 comments To my Left: Caladan Brood (Malazan)
To my right: Anomander Rake (Malazan)
Behind me: Mickey (from Rocky Movie) Screaming at me to get up.

Given some of the women's comment in this thread he'll be giving different advice.

and just because I feel like joining the rest of the thirsty ladies, he does look nice in those tight pants on the tv show


message 45: by Mayim (new)

Mayim de Vries | 2948 comments 1. Anomander Rake (for his sword - no pun intended!)
2. Fox Montredavan-An (I like the fact that he casually radiates menace)
3. Aragorn or Legolas (cannot decide)


message 46: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments 1. Vin because... Vin.
2. Hadrian because he does know how to fight
3. Kate Daniels because... Kate.
3.5. Kellen (Spellslinger) because I like his tactics and how he makes the best of what he has.


message 47: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan @Mayim, I'd go with Legolas everytime, he'd kill 20 before they even hit the wall. However, if you want leadership to rally the troops when the need is dire - then Aragorn is your man.


message 48: by Laura (new)

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Mine would be:
1. Mykkael To Ride Hell’s Chasm
2. Anomander Rake Gardens of the Moon
3. Logen Ninefingers The Blade Itself

Now I would have added Joscelind Verreuil Kushiel's Dart also, but he's too damn handsome and I like my heroes to be rough and tough. :D


message 49: by Shaitarn (new)

Shaitarn | 1963 comments Hmm, most of my favourite characters are loners who don't play well with others. I've got these:

1. Logan Ninefingers The Blade Itself (because he knows about shield walls).
2. Druss Legend (because he's a legend!)
3. The Majere brothers, Caramon and Raistlin, if that's allowed Dragons of Autumn Twilight (they usually come as a two-for-one after all).


message 50: by Brian (new)

Brian | 1196 comments Tough to decide.

Hadrian -Theft of Swords
Druss- and his bad ass Axe
Kaladin-Stormlight

Honorable mention:
Royce-Theft of swords. Would be awesome to listen to him and Hadrian bicker.
Sevro- Red Rising
