  1. Fain or Tam, I think. Who would be in the first or second episode? Bornhald doesn't make as much sense. Even if he were in it, wouldn't have a huge scene.
  2. Wouldn't be the worst Moiraine but I don't think she is on the Sean Bean level of casting, is she? Would hope for one other big name in the casting. Otherwise, one of the things I'm most looking forward to is discovering some great new character actors. GoT did this so magnificently and I hope WoT can do the same.
  3. This is great but Red Eagle is still involved?!
  4. Lord of Chaos, if simply for the most memorable scene for me (Dumai's Wells): "Kneel and swear to the Lord Dragon, or you will be knelt."
  5. Really liking the book so far, first time I was taken out of it was Rand/Mats interaction where they tried to one-up each other. It read rather awkwardly.
  6. Just an aside, but whither Morgase? I'm guessing she'll pop up at some point but nary a peep about her so far. Thought it would have been good to hear from her regarding Caemlyn falling.
  7. If we assume that Lanfear (Cyndane) will break the White Tower according to that prophecy and we also assume that the Seanchan are going to attack the White Tower again, it wouldn't be a far reach to assume that she is either manipulating the Seanchan to that end already or will be opportunistic when another attack occurs.
  8. I think it's Rand talking to Roedran or Taim, having believed that one of them was Demandred. To Roedran during/after the FoM meetup would make sense. Rand continually tries to puzzle out the Forsaken's plans throughout the series. I wouldn't find him saying this objectionable.
  9. Quick question: Does traveling using the True Power work the same way? I believe it was mentioned somewhere in the series that weaves are sometimes different when using the TP. Could trollocs travel with the TP?
  10. As someone who has lurked for much of the back-and-forth with Luckers and Peter I have found many of the 'inside baseball' discussion utterly fascinating, with some of it leaving me shaking my head. I think we can all see that Luckers cares a lot about the series (perhaps even to an unhealthy degree) but he does have many valid points. I also think it's tough for Peter to be able to respond to a lot of the feedback/questions/criticism raised at Dragonmount because he is not Brandon and he does not represent Harriet/TOR. He can't speak for them. What that has led to is more of a one-sided discussion at points. Other times, other Dragonmount members feel the need to fill in the gap and defend/support Harriet/TOR/Brandon in the absence of the principals themselves. I agree that Drekka has a good point here. Luckers is here to hash it out, let him defend himself. . IMO, Brandon is a very talented writer who's weaknesses were exposed when writing another author's characters. I also think Harriet is a traditionalist and very protective of Jordan's legacy, which in some ways has led to the detriment of the last three books. My own feeling is that Brandon was feeling burnt out of WoT and the back-and-forth with TOR/Harriet by this last book. I think in some ways, he was ready to be over with the series. Even so, I still believe he will have put his best effort to writing it. I can assign no blame to Brandon for any of the 'inside baseball' anecdotes or stories that have emerged because I could not imagine having to do what he had been tasked with and I do not have nearly the full picture. Even still, your eyebrow is raised by some of the things we've heard here. Fans critiquing the final product is part of being a fan however, and it is part of what we do, even absent complete information.
  11. Epilogue? Makes sense to me. Brandon mentioned the 50+ viewpoints he was writing in a single chapter which has to do with the LB. The end of the book needs to wrap things up (where the characters are after the LB), WoT uses epilogues a lot and Jordon wrote the 'ending', ergo, it's the epilogue. I hope it's Rand smoking some Two Rivers tabac and listening to Loial talk about the book he wrote.
  12. This chapter...It shows events going one direction but it feels to me that events are about to take a hard turn for the worse in the next few chapters. Looks to me that the big meeting for the next day is going to go down in flames. IMO, Elayne will resist Rand' insistence on abandoning Andor, which will create some pretty big problems. I imagine not only with Elayne but perhaps Egwene as well will be against Rand's advice and will probably harden their stance against Rand. Add in the Roedran wildcard (Demandred?) and 'let chaos reign'. Things don't look too bad right now, Rand even thinks this will help convince Elayne to agree with him but this book is supposed to be about the light failing until almost all hope is lost. A successful FoM meetup would go against that methinks.
  13. I would say doing the art for a number of Stephen King's Dark Tower books qualifies. Perhaps that fan base isn't as rabid, but it certainly is well established.
  14. Definitely my favorite memory is when Lan trains Rand to meet Siuan for the first time in Shienar.
  15. Took an early lunch and bought the book. Started at chapter 3 and got to chapter 7 by the end of my lunch.
  16. I thought that this would refer to Moridin, as I doubt one of the smartest minds of the AoL would turn to the shadow because of inevitability. Pretty sure this is Taim.
  17. Didn't 'Larry' or someone else who got an advanced copy say that Perrin essentially sucks in this book?? I pray there is some character progression with this guy. Edit: It was 'Pat' from Westeros.
  18. Yup. Taim wielding the TP was one of my predictions on the old board. I'm pretty sure he is.
  19. I don't think she's alive but I think she's going to be resurrected. The way she talked was strange and seemed to indicate that she thought she was going to come back even though she poisoned herself.
  20. I thought it was widely believed that Mesaana was Danelle? She still sounds like the most plausible person to me, since she helped soldiers infiltrate the White Tower for Siuan's overthrow and has not been identified as BA.
  21. I don't think Verin is gone for good. Some sort of resurrection maybe in the making for her. The wording when she talks to Mat and then Egwene is strange, and seems to me to be on purpose. Pg. 604 in tGS. There is more in the next paragraph down, as she admits the oath road might not have worked anyway.
  22. That would make sense. There has to be some sort of infrastructure set up to house and feed the hundreds of thousands of trollocs that are in the Blight.
  23. I'm pretty sure the word in the image is 'SHOCKER'. Edit: N/M, that's not right Kinda looks like a Snickers bar
  24. Haven't seen this yet. The Shadow Rising Pg. 128, just after Moiraine sends Joiya and Amico back to their cells, talking to Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve about Rand's reluctance to move from the Stone: :o Wait what did she say?! I mean it could be here Moiraine just making something up here but it seems quite specific. Can the Forsaken team up and rip Rand's soul from his body? If yes, will this come into play vis a vis Moridin/body swap theory??
