I'm currently reading the second book and I guess I'll get my answers later but I keep wondering.. What is Bayle Domon's part in all of this... To me his is just a regular man and as far as I can see there's nothing special about him :p ???

I'd recommend you run far away from the messageboards until you're done with the 11th book, or else you may draw the ire of people who have such as a certain someone recently did. To answer your question though, remember, you are reading a book series in which the main characters are literally walking plot devices, ta'veren are like the ultimate deus ex machina.

Domon plays his role in the book, if RJ is writing more than a single scene with a character, they generally have some sort of role in the book.

You might want to avoid the general WoT discussion board and the Gathering Storm board for a while yet.  I suggest the structured board, specifically threads that deal with tEotW and tGH until you get further along in the series.  There are going to be spoilers in EVERY thread in the boards I suggested keeping away from.  If you don't mind spoilers, stick around...but I really think you'll be better off being surprised.

He's a regular man and yet still plays a part. You go, Bayle Domon!

If you don't mind finding out who lives, who dies or who betrays, and knowing ahead of time every interesting plot twist before you read it, then this (General Wheel of Time Discussion)is a good board for you. If you want to share the experience of what you've already read with others while still allowing the story to unfold for you fresh and new with every page, then like the others have already said, the Structured Wheel of Time Discussion would be a better board for you. Either way, welcome to Dragonmount.

Even if you've just read the first Bayle Domon section of tGH you should be able to figure out why he has a part in the book.  You did finish it, didn't you?

Even if they only had one scene, some characters tend to pop up again.  Off the top of my head, I can think of two in the EotW that only had one brief appearance that showed up again much later.  Excluding Forsaken.

Have fun! Be aware also, that reading a thread about a particular character, like Moiraine or Mat or whoever, will contain spoilers, even on the Structured board.

Yes, maybe the forums should be shut down for a week or two after TGS comes out.

You're free to avoid them until you've finished the book; why deny others the use of the forums?

that's why i decided to completely avoid the site when TGS comes out until i've read it all. cause i know that you people won't be able too keep the spoilers in one place.

 

every damn theory topic like "who killed Asmodean" will be full of post saying: "ha, i knew i was right, suck it. here's a quote from chapter ...."

I have heard that when previous books were released, people were actually very good about keeping spoilers in the correct sections.

You heard correct.  There are protocols for new WoT books.

It'd be for the good of the people. Equality is the goal. In fact, when I'm not on no one should make any posts. When I log in and find people have made  new posts while I was gone I am thoroughly disappointed.
