Where did male channelers live during the Age of Legends? Was there a Black tower to match the White? Did they destroy it during the breaking? Why is there never any mention of it?

I thought they were part of the white tower back then

All channelers belonged to the Hall of Servants, if I remember it right. There was no White Tower (or Black Tower) before the breaking. Male and female Aes Sedai worked together. It was after the breaking of the world that the femail Aes Sedai had to find each other to help the world (and find the male Aes Sedai so they could be gentled). Then they founded the White Tower. It was Rand that came up with the idea of a Black Tower and to name the male channelers Asha´mans. 

 

 

Hi! Great to see a new face here. Would you like to join the Black Tower?

I believe that, in the Age of Legends, there was no formal "gathering place" or anything like there is in the Third Age (and Fourth Age, presumably). There was the Hall of Servants, which seems to have been some kind of parliament-like place, but also a kind of home to all Aes Sedai (remember, male channelers were Aes Sedai too in the Age of Legends), but apart from the Hall, channelers seem to have lived basically wherever they were needed, maybe like the Kin does, but without the secrecy. Many, I presume, would have lived at the Hall of Servants or a university or something similar though.

Well, you just did.

 

Panchi should be sending you a PM with some welcome information and stuff soon. In the meanwhile, I'll create a welcome thread for you. It's most likely up by the time you read this, but on the other hand I'm too lazy to make it first and then link it here.

    • Literally everyone hates him. 
    • Heard on a pod-cast yesterday:   James Commey
    • Trump University? Trump Steaks?   Like not paying your contractors for the jobs they do, citing it wasn't good enough, which coming from Mr.Trump is just a cheapskate tactic to avoid paying. I bet he has more failure to pay dispute judgments against him then most businessmen.   That's the 2020 election in a nutshell.   We'll talk about some candidates, than Trump will say something stupid and our attention will go to him like we were fat kids and he was a hotcake.
    • Ok ok I know we all disagree about Trump and as much as I enjoy arguing about him it's getting to the point that every topic devolves into a Trump debate. This is about Dems 2020 candidates can we talk about that without bringing up Trump any further than whether or not a potential candidate can beat him?
    • "The Trump real estate company was a best a small - and not very good - player in luxary real estate holding. They were really only good at building in places where the ... maturiaty ... of the local economy was ... loose ... enough that they could get away with their quasi-legal sales, marketing, and construction strategies."   His business empire (and that is what it is) although centered on real estate holdings is much more accurately described as a marketing and franchising of the Trump brand name.    As for the his real estate holdings, except for certain allegations concerning discriminatory pracitces which most large real estate developers of his kind have had to deal with his practices and construction strategies along with his sales and marketing strategies have been overall quite successful and no more legally questionable then any other large developer of premium luxury properties.    His only true failures have been in the Atlantic City Gambling Casinos which he has owned. But then again he is not alone in suffering severe losses in that market as most of the Casinos in Atlantic City have proven to be unproftiable over the long run and their are quite a few of even of the largest players that have suffered bankruptcies in that market.
