  1. tying in with one of the above posts about what the pattern needs him for in 20-odd years, ive been thinking for a while about that. what do we know RJ planned to write about AFTER TG? the mat tuon series/trilogy/whatever seems a good candidate(its the only outrigger that im aware is set AFTER TG, or was planned to). seems to me that maybe Gaidal is currently in Seanchan somewhere waiting for some plot armour(or at least a book in which to have more than one line). Brandons mention of this could have a tiny relevence to the ongoing discussions of team Jordan about whether to have them written(
  2. I'm pretty sure that the Song is mixed up in a Ter'angreal that Elayne had read way back in one of the books. Oh wait no, that was the Talisman of Growing. Or is it both? Can someone help me out here? the Talisman of Growing was given to the ogier by male channellers in thanks for the refuge of the stedding. it grows an entrance to the ways. and has nought to do with "the song". i dimly remember the Ter your on about though, it was activated by Avi, and is an AoL library of sorts, containing books from that time in audio-descriptive format i hope, as not many can read the old tongue
  3. long time without posting(pc blew up), but during a recent reread i THINK, in seeds of shadow(tSR), min sees elaida with an a'dam on her neck. ".. and another, crossing the corridor ahead of Min and her guide, seemed for most of those few strides to wear a silver collar around her neck." followed a few pages later by elaida hanging around outside the amyrlins study thinking about min, and the 3 ta'veren etc. so we have the last aes sedai seen before entering the offices, and one Elaida eavedropping on Min and Gawyn immediately after(in WoT time, not Page time). anyway, this became one of my to
  4. to me its probably to do with who sent the trollocs to attack the others. im pretty sure that one of the forsaken/chosen thought about sending them in tGS, possibly messana? they were under orders to do so, so it maybe has some ramifications coming up. Lanfear used it to ingratiate herself with rand on the fly, and as i say, its had a recent mention.
  5. a wha... something being too close to the lord of the rings has not stopped authors before, and most of the troops from the south actually came from the east...
  6. i could understand the whole siswai'aman channeling-singing etc if we saw any of them doing it. channeling? really? aiel men believe they have been chosen to fight the dark one if they start showing the signs, and run off to the blight in an attempt to do so. Singing? i think i would actually burn my books if this was the B©UT for its lameness. it is possible theyll sing. for the dead like all aiel men. there purpose was in saving rand from the tower AS in lord of chaos, not bring about a new age of peace and love and... enough of this, im a hippy, and even im a bit sick of the hippy c**p peop
  7. lanfear didnt send them, she just gave rand the impression she did. it was another of the chosedn, ordered to do it. i just cant remember who. i think its said in TGS, but could be wrong.
  8. what about the sister alvierin sent to tenobia in the prologue of the fires of heaven? just started the book again today, and it immediately jumped out at me.in the same convo we first learn that bashere is chasing taim, that theirs fighting in shienar, and elaida doesnt like being snubbed(lol). it is a convenient time to get a darkfriend advisor in place as bashere is now gone, and it is one of the front-line nations in the coming battles. the sisters in the borderlanders camp keep being mentioned, is one of them a black? if so thatd be a kick in the teeth, especially as tenobia is keen to re
  9. yeah, fain can sense all 3 of them, since before book 1, its all to do with his distillation thingy the DO did to him. theyy knew the dragon reborn lived somewhere on his peddling route, so they did all that stuff to him, then set him loose, then after 1 year he returned to shayol ghul where he was distilled further which narrowed down who the dragon was to those three, then on his next visit to emonds field he knew it was rand cos he tugs at him the most. i think moiraine explains it all at the end of book 1/the beginning of book 2.
  10. tuon flat out says she cant weave with the power, that the difference between her and marath damane is that she CHOOSES NOT TO. and she wasnt shocked to hear about suldam being able to channel, so she knew THAT secret, its probably something handed down, you know when they get announced as the heir apparent, the empress takes them to one side and says "you can channel, but your not marath damane unless you do so, unless its to power the crystal throne, in which case, heres how to invert weaves". now im not saying it happens exactly like this, but in a society like the seanchan, the people in p
  11. i thought ishy told LTT that a sisters healing would only give him a few lucid mopments, that doesnt seem to be "better" healing than with the true power. he says the great lords healing is much more painfull, and i got the impression that the healing itself was more permanent, it was just the outcome of realisation that killed LTT, not madness.
  12. despite what some think, we DO know quite a bit about shara, and it often hinted at. also, dont forget that originally there was going to be "outriggers" which possibly would have expanded on the culture more. however, with the potential non-writing of the outriggers, who knows? i do think it was highly probable as an original plan for him.
  13. the forsaken already know how to trace ta'veren, why would he need a finder? im not debunking the roedran theory, but this has popped up a few times, and it just seems unnecessary.
  14. personally, i always felt avendasora paralleled yggdrasil, the norse world tree, what with all the other norse references, and the ultimate reference when matt hangs from it for knowledge, as odin was said to have done. though it had 3 taproots, each taking water from a different source and combining them in the trunk. hmmm, that also seems to be a metaphor in the wheel of time too... may go do some research now...
  15. i see TaR working just like karma ed. it all fits, its a place where if you dont follow the rules, you get hurt, even if your not a hero of the horn. verin went in ignorance, and payed the price...
