Crazy question about the oath rod.


Recommended Posts

When you swear on the oath rod to obey someone (like galina), if the person whom they are sworn to obey states that they dont want them to be affected by One Power manipulation will they still be bond by the rod?

There seems to be some limits on a fealty oath.  Galina was not able to stop her tears even though Therava commanded her to not cry.  (Knife of Dreams Chapter 30)

A command to not be manipulated, not sure if that command could work.  It would depend on other people's actions.  Commands after a fealty oath can only affect the person who sworn fealty; the fealty oath cannot be extended to include people the person meets.

The foxhead medallion seems the only thing that can prevent One Power manipulation.


The question actually is not crazy.
