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.

    • Also, here's my question: water.
    • In what sense are we giving our country away?
    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
