  1. We got very little in the way of hints about Nakomi in AMoL, but their location make this thread full-spoilers by necessity. So, let's have it. Did anyone glean anything about Nakomi that we didn't know before AMoL? PS If you want another poll-option, let me know.
  2. It is, as well as having a genetic component. However, there are entire Ages where access to the True Source is denied to all, in which a 'channeling' soul can be reborn and never touch it.
  3. They didn't actually miss that possibility. Cyndane used air to behead a DF when she felt Nynaeve draw on saidar through the CK, and Asmodean used a trap made of air wires just inside Rhuidean when Rand chased him there.
  4. Not before AMoL, and we can't discuss more than that here.
  5. Cadsuane went above and beyond, but all male channelers are to be taken to the Tower, tried and Gentled there, and then be cared after until they pass. Moiraine told Thom that the Reds who Gentled Owyn shouldn't have done what they did.
  6. This thread is meant as a place where you can post a review of AMoL. Read the book? Have a lot to say about it? Well, this is where you can say it all in one (preferably coherent) big post. To allow this post to serve its purpose, we encourage you to ask questions regarding another's review, but please don't debate any one review in depth, so as to drown the discussion of others. If a controversial point arises, we ask that you take the discussion to the quality or errata threads, or ask for a new one if none exists. This topic will be full spoilers, so if you haven't read through the
  7. Audiobooks are counted as HC and ebooks are counted separately. NYT now put the combined list on top, but they still have the separate lists.
  8. Indeed, Tamra's murder was directly performed by Black sisters in a sanctioned operation. The Vileness refers to events beginning at that time, where the Black has influenced the Red to unknowingly assist in the effort to hunt down and either kill or Gentle the Dragon Reborn. Events became so tangled that when they eventually did see light, all three Red Sitters were exiled (of the three, I recall Tsutama, the Highest, and Toveine). I'm not sure about this next thing, but I believe Sierin's murder at the hands of non-Black Reds was also set in motion as part of this scheme. Someone should
  9. I understand your frustration, but are we to assume they offered you a refund in another correspondence? That's implied by your last reply, but isn't supported by previous letters. Mistakes happen. It's unfortunate, and you could sue for damages (the lost opportunity to acquire said edition via a different venue), but if they did offer a refund, I'd say leave it at that. They expected Tor to deliver, but for whatever reason got their wires crossed. I'm sure they regret loosing your business, too.
  10. iI think we'd have known if Emarin was alive. Other than that, Logain?
  11. Late reaction, but I never considered that it was any particular failing in Paul Atreides that caused the Jihad. It was either death (in the desert, or at the point of a crysknife) or being pushed into a position of authority among the Fremen for him. What was he to do, refuse to teach his fellows the 'wizarding ways', in so doing tipping the scales of their struggle against their Harkonnen overlords? Therefore, while I do see this as a Dune reference, I don't read any judgment into it. It's merely a parallel (if reversed), one among many (they are truly too numerous to count).
  12. Because it's only fitting against individuals, and that only matters if you're in a duel or fighting enemy channelers? We haven't seen many times were the Ever Victorious Army faced that sort of thing (the wondergirls' escape from Falme and Ebou Dar are the only instances I can think of, prior to TGS). PS So it wasn't even Seta. I guess I should reread CoT.
  13. I meant, Siuan and Leane. They were severed, so I think the term holds as an adjective even though they're Healed.
  14. Sutt, it severely lacked in power, which would explain the lack of other symptoms, and the tingling lights are similar. The downside is you'd expect us to see it when the Seanchan attacked the WT, but we didn't. However, TGS is hardly a viable litmus test for continuity issues.
  15. But the Tower is well apprised on Sashalle's Healing. Sooner or later, Severed sisters are bound to learn of it.
  16. I'm not so sure. It appears akin to the function of Asne's stun-gun (was it Asne that used it?). I, too, believe Seta knew the weave and simply lacked proper control to channel on her own.
  17. Let's put things in perspective, here. No one is ever forced to break the law, but in the area of copyright infringement online, the phenomenon is widely known. People will ignore these laws, just as people will drive above the speed-limit, or fail to report the 50$ they made watching after the neighbor's children. In this sort of situation, it becomes very relevant to debate the different factors that contribute to people's inclination to either buy or pirate a book, and the points kevin brought up are indeed paramount in this regard. So no, he wasn't forced. But a direct link does exist betw
  18. iI don't think we need two threads about the ebook situation, so i. I'm locking this one.
  19. I agree that it seems unlikely that was Harriet's true motive, but for completely different reasons. It's very clear to me, as a Kindle user and one who owns hardcovers of earlier books in the series, that I wouldn't have bought the book in any other form than electronic if I've been given that chance. Collections are nice, but I'm just not that sentimental. And I think if you'll really inquire, you'll discover that the vast majority of readers aren't (just as the vast majority isn't represented at all on forums like this one). Now, skipping on getting the book when it comes out, well, that's
  20. Hi, and welcome. This issue is indeed frustrating, because the information is all there. Randlanders are notoriously uncommunicative, which is the only barrier.
  21. Not a multi-verse, the WoT is simply supposed to be our world, in another time (meaning, this now is an Age where the DO and OP aren't known). By the way, while what you say rings a bell, I'm not exactly sure where it was or how it's described. Can you pinpoint the quote?
  22. Yeah, it's been suggested. Personally, I don't subscribe to that belief, but search for "three become one" and you'll find it (along with the other usual suspects).
  23. There's an open thread about this: http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/76191-memory-of-light-audiobook/
  24. Would you believe that we never really stop arguing about our theories? For example, each side of the real-construct (regarding LTT) debate is sure their pov was proven in KoD and TGS.
  25. Ah, Amazon customer care. Never gets old. True story: I was an Audible member before, but I quitted shortly after ToM came out. Now, they've been sending me promotions this last year, so I contacted them to ask whether that really applies to me as well. The representative told me sure, he could do that manually if I wanted. So, I asked what he meant, what were the terms of the promotion. His next reply was telling me that he enrolled me in the 7.5$/month times 3 first months program, and my credit card was billed for the first month (which was actually what I wanted; I just don't think I h
