  1. I dont believe the Tinker song has anything to do with Ogier Treesinging. I posted this earlier, but I'll post it again. I think we get a hint of it when Rand visits Tuon in Ebou Dar and makes the garden bloom. Mat hears him singing under his breath and asks him about it to which Rand basically responds "not now." I'm guessing that one of the things Rand will do in his wanderings is visit the Tinkers and pass along the Song.
  2. Yeah, but he'll be back. The only way he would've been truly happy is if Rand had Balefired him.
  3. Actually Callandor was made either during or just before the breaking. As you'll recall from TSR when Rand is having the Aiel visions, in one of them he is at a council of remaining Aes Sedai and Callandor is there on the table along with the Horn of Valere and the Dragon's banner. We also know from RJ that Callandor's flaw was a manufacturing defect. It's ability to magnify the True Power was accidental (or caused by the Pattern), which is why even Moridin didn't know about it. As for the magnifying the taint, well, the True Power and the taint aren't the same thing, but they come from the same source so magnifying the taint was a clue as to it's ability to magnify the True Power. The Forsaken only wanted it to use as a Sa'Angreal (in the case of male Forsaken) or to keep it from the male Forsaken (in the case of female Forsaken). Demandred's Sa'Angreal having a name isn't exactly unusual since all the mega-powerful Sa'Angreal have names- Callandor, the Choden Kal, Vora's Wand. His bonding of it, while unheard of for a Sa'Angreal, is not unique since other items such as the Horn of Valere have similar effects. The whole bonding thing could also have been a red herring by Demandred to keep Taim from using it against him.
  4. Someone above mentioned the Tinker's Song. I believe we get a hint of it. Remember the scene when Rand meets with Tuon in the garden and makes everything bloom? Mat notices him singing softly under his breathe and asks him about it. Rand pretty much tells him "not now." I'm guessing the Tinker's Song will be discovered once again very soon after a certain individual in a brand new Moridin meat suit comes to visit them.
  5. Speaking of Heroes of the Horn, I think one of the best scenes in the book is Noal/Jain Farstrider appearing and saving Olver. I about lost it myself. Such a touching scene.
  6. At least Bela went out well. She saved Olver and the Horn of Valere, so in a way she saved the whole world by helping Olver recover the Horn from the Shadow. So yeah, she died, but she went out like a real hero.
  7. I just re-read Towers of Midnight, and in the scene where Rand comes back to Tear and is "enlightened" he specifically tells Cadsuane that she has taught him that he needs to be more than a weapon. That seems to fulfill the prophecy, in my interpretation. That was my thought too. Pretty sure this one's been fulfilled. She taught Rand something important, which he felt the need to pass onto the Asha'man, and he was DEFINATELY not happy about it before-hand.
  8. are you positive they are the same, Paitr with morgase was younger than Paitr Rand met in beginning? Also, Mat makes it obvious, but the girl DF that mat took away her knife, she showed up a few more times Egwene will probably meet Raen and the tinkers again, she dreamed she needs some info from them with Need. The same Truth Seeker keeps showing up, but not really hidden Same with Jaichim Carradin You reminded me of Renna, egwene will have to face her again when Elayne ships her to tower, even tho in 2nd to last book she tells hall to accept damane for training and how much she still hates Renna... It was obvious it was the same Paitr the Darkfriend. Also, the female assassin is Lady Shiaine/Mili Skane. She's running the cell of Darkfriends in Caemlyn that includes Daved Hanlon. She also is the one that kills Jaichim Carridan in a most unpleasant way. As for Renna, she's dead. She was one of the three Suldam Mat used to escape Ebou Dar and he was forced to have one of his men kill her with a crossbow when she ran off to try and return to the Seanchan.
  9. I should point out that regardless of wether she should or should not keep her pants on, we have a Min viewing already that shows that she will have four children by Rand. So we know that she doesn't.
  10. Urdnot Reeve... ugh. Hated that guy. My first playthrough of ME3 I was using an ME2 save that didn't convert from an ME1 save so it used the default "Wrex dies" scenario. After my first playthrough I went back and finished off ME1 with a Wrex survives save, then played through ME2 again, just so I could see what happens with Wrex living. MUCH better story. Kai Leng is still the most annoying character in ME3 though.
  11. William Zabka! Gotta love that guy. He's apparently a super nice guy in real life. He's also willing to make fun of himself, like when he did the video "Sweep the Leg" by No More Kings. If you haven't seen it check it out. It's hilarious!
  12. Davy Crockett- Frontiersman, soldier, Congressman from Tennessee, died defending the Alamo. This guy's life was almost unbelievable. They were still writing songs, plays, books and movies about the man more then a century after his death. His exploits were legendary. He was not only a legend in his own time, but as recently as eight years ago he was still being portrayed in movies. Check it out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Crockett What really qualifies someone as a HotH? They have to be a legendary figure that has had stories told about them and that almost everyone has heard of. They don't necessarily have to have changed the world. Birgitte and Gaidal weren't world conquering heroes, they were just amazing adventurers with legendary exploits. With that in mind you'd have a hard time finding someone who fits the bill better then the "King of the Wild Frontier." Who else can you think of that supposedly killed a bear at the age of three?
  13. Hard to say an overall favorite, so I'll break it down into categories: Fantasy- Faith of the Fallen by Terry Goodkind- Sixth book in the Sword of Truth series, but it was by far one of the best fantasy books I've ever read. The ending truly moved me, and that's a first for me when it comes to fantasy. Runner up: Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. Can't wait for book 2!! Sci-Fi- Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein- No question. I'm a former infantryman and paratrooper myself and the Mobile Infantry is modeled heavily on the Airborne. I've read this book like four or five times. I rarely re-read books (WoT being an exception). Runner up: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card Second runner up: Dune by Frank Herbert Modern Thriller- Without Remorse by Tom Clancy- The origin story of his recurring character CIA field operative John Clark. Takes place just after the Vietnam War and alternates between Clark (whose name was John Kelly before he joined the CIA) getting revenge on a group of Baltimore drug dealers that killed his girlfriend and running a black op in Vietnam to rescue a POW. Runner up: Term Limits by Vince Flynn Classics: Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas- The classic revenge tale. The movie with Jim Cavizel as Edmond Dantes was really good too, though they had to simplify some of the plot to make it fit into a two hour movie. A direct translation of the book would be more like a mini-series. Runner up: Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  14. The entire House of Lannister except Tyrion. Walder Frey Ramsay Snow Kai Leng from ME3 (I friggin HATE that guy) Admiral Cain from BSG Cavil from BSG (Cavil is also one of my favorite villains- soooo evil) Best villain monologue ever:
