  1. New Speculation over Wheel of Time Ending

    That was asked and answered. He told us that Harriett wasn't wanting that. It is something about the ending of the WOT, which we all missed. It might have been posted, but it was something he said he wasn't asked about.
  2. New Books Similar To Wheel of Time

    I've been reading L.E. Modesitt's Imager Portfolio series lately and a lot of things have been jumping out at me more and more that remind me of WOT and RJ. Things too close to just be coincidence I feel, but it's not like WOT but it is interesting that the guy has two magic systems in play in his Recluse books and Imager. Of course there are a few similarities. The guy loves personal shields.
  3. lopinginny

    Dodo Bird came to mind, all too stupid to live long, or Poppinjay, arrogant and flamboyant and boastful, but fleeting when confronted.
  4. Rand sends Perrin to Masema?!?!

    It was also important for Rand to send everyone away from him because he worried his friends would all be killed being too close to him. There was the off-screen ploy of Perrin and Rand fighting which Perrin reflects on of the mock falling out with one another which Rand hoped would protect Perrin. When Perrin arrives back in Rand's presence after the Two Rivers battles, Rand immediately begin talking about what he needs Perrin to do which prompts the comments on Perrin not being a general. Rand wanted to keep everyone away from him but was weak and gave in allowing Min to remain at his side more than he would have liked, and later Nynaeve during the dark times.
  5. Rand after the Last Battle

    Rand basically wove creation itself, and as we see with the pipe at the end he can manipulate and change reality itself, so basically he was upgraded in his abilities and doesn't need to channel. This is something we see hinted at with his children's abilities to not even embrace saidin or saidar, as they are in a constant state of a sort of "Oneness" with the power.
  6. Black Tower future location.

    If anything, when they unite they will likely build a vast city and new tower like in the Age of Legends. I can't remember the name, Heaven's Gates or wherever the Aiel were packing up to leave when we see the Aiel in Rand's journey through the ter'angreal in Rhudien with the Aes Sedai and the dragon banner, callandor, and the HOV.
  7. Aes Sedai and Torture

    This is revisited later when a certain someone sees a need, also in a rage, to discipline a certain disobedient novice. The oaths are flawed in that a sister can lie if she believes the lie as truth, and can beat a person with the power if they feel it is discipline. The oaths work on the brain of the sister that takes them and we can see broad differences in many aspects with the sisters. The moment a thought triggers that it might be crossing a line, that is when the oath holds them back.
  8. The duel was rigged. Gawyn was wearing at least 2-3 of the Bloodrings which made him move unnaturally fast with weaves masking and aiding him. Not to mention the Warder Bond aiding him as well. Demandred fought without augmentation. Holding the OP or even the TP wouldn't have given a master swordsman the edge to counter someone moving that fast. Remember, Demandred couldn't even him him with weaves or a rock in the beginning. So how does someone who defeated two of the best Warder swordsmen who is double augmented fail to kill someone moving slower? The whole thing wasn't written well enough to convince me he gets defeated. The only way to defeat a Blood Knife is to do so blindly where you don't rely on your eyes and can hear their movement. Then suddenly Demandred can strike faster than Gawyn even with the lure to draw him in to not only shove a blade in and then out? I suppose it was meant to be, so that Galad would be angered enough to go and face him, and finally Lan. There was good which came from each duel, in that the massive devastation he was doing to the armies of light was interrupted bringing moments of relief. Gawyn, Galad, Logain, the occasional Dragon's Egg, and finally Lan won out.
  9. Yes it didn't have anything to do with the last battle, it was his indecision of not choosing a side and the choice he had to make, and he chose Egwene.
  10. ??? Oh. I got all excited that maybe someone had found something or had a theory on the International Novel that RJ Ghostwrote which this topic was about. I'm sure someone else will also check in. If you have any ideas, post them. I'd love to read something else that he wrote even if it was in someone else's name. Any theories on a thriller novel that reads like RJ's work?
  11. WoT a complex Blacksmith's Puzzle

    RJ was gifted beyond words, and such a good writer that things tied themselves in he probably didn't give a second thought to. Each time I go back through the series (more than 20 times now,) I glean little nuggets and have realizations of things I hadn't connected before.
  12. Elaida's Escape from the Seanchan

    It is likely that since he was being corrupted by the taint on the OP, this equal yet different evil might have staved off obvious signs of corruption. We see later that the two wounds on his side, the TP taint from Ishy's staff wound and Fain's dagger wound over the spot worked against each other. We also see this cancel out and leave a giant hole where Shadar Logoth was when the taint is cleansed from the source. At least my theory, when I was wondering about it.
  13. Elaida's Escape from the Seanchan

    Yes. He made her more paranoid, and it grew until she was not just a bad decision to put a Red Ajah member on the Seat, but to be a terrible Aes Sedai and human being in the end. We saw it in CoS with Toram Riatin so quickly falling under Fain's control. His meetings with Elaida did this to her. What surprises me is how Niall was barely touched by him, but I think that's more of an analysis of the CoL and Niall's own persona. The taint of Shadar Logoth is strong, and even the smallest of cuts could corrupt and kill quickly. It nearly killed Matt, turned him massively paranoid, Fain was corrupted by it, and those who spent their time with Fain were destroyed as well. (The CoL who followed him and the Darkfriends as well) Niall wasn't "barely touched," in my opinion. Just look at what he orders the White Cloaks and Carridin to do, and put Fain in control not only of the killing the White Cloaks (Questioners) were doing on Almoth Plain, but put Fain in a position of power for the Two Rivers Campaign. Bornhald cannot fathom why Ordeith was given such sway and notes with disgust the corruption of the Children that were in Fain's camp. If he wasn't bothered so much with revenge for his father, he might have put a stop to it rather than seeing Fain as a somewhat necessary evil. As to Niall, Niall wanted to expand the position of the Children, but was tempered to gains and victories through negotiations in more recent times following the White Cloak War long ago. Then his temperance and caution and wisdom are eroded by Fain and the dark side emerges allowing him to miss the machinations among his own people and die for it while trying to gain more lands and influence.

(The CoL who followed him and the Darkfriends as well) Not only more paranoid, but she became very grandiose in her desires. The new palace/tower she was building, her inability to tolerate small things like the Sitters and how easily she gave in to Alviarin.
  15. Elaida's Escape from the Seanchan

    Yes, I seem to remember that piece now which was her inspiration for making the necklace and bracelet as separate pieces. Well, it seems like Elaida is well and truly stuck. Great News, lol!
