  1. Cyndane being the most punished probably rests on two things. 1. Her attitude following her first death. I don't find it particularly hard to believe that she's generally been more defiant than Moggy, considering the characterization of each. 2. Rather than simply screwing up horribly like the others, she actively worked to help Rand learn to channel and tried to create an alliance with him to overthrow both the Dark One and the Creator. Even if it had never worked, this is likely a much more significant offense in the Dark One's eyes (or whatever equivalent it may have). Even Asmo and Moggy were forced into their situation--the former by Cyndane herself.
  2. Hah. Great song choice considering the prophecies surrounding Rand's death. My question is if But this is pretty awesome news.
  3. Happy to start posting on this forum

  4. No, it's the extra guy from the first cover of Eye of the World, the one cut in the editing process. The next book is where he makes his grand return as the fourth ta'veren! :D
  5. If I had a spare copy of The Eye of the World, I'd send it to ya. Unfortunately I don't. I see from the other thread that your libraries don't have a copy. Used, like one person suggested, is one good possibility. Try checking around your town for used bookstores and seeing if they have a cheap copy of the first book. Or someone here might end up being really nice.
  6. 1. It wasn't balefire. 2. Balefire doesn't erase from the pattern. It's just that the Dark One has a very small window of time to grab a soul at the time of death. Balefire gets rid of that window, putting the soul back into the normal cycle.
  7. I've always expected a lot of deaths in the last book. I'm thinking Lan dies. Maybe Nynaeve as well, considering her temper and the Warder bond. I can see her going out just like the last Manatheren queen. Perhaps she'll be the one to ultimately destroy whatever Trolloc army threatens Tarwin's Gap. Maybe even make it inaccessible in the process, Breaking of the World style.
  8. The Travels of Jain Farstrider The Dragon Reborn, by Loial
  9. She's a powerful Dreamer and has plans to introduce some much needed reform to the White Tower. She also is smart enough to listen to, and learn from, those that have in the past held similar positions. She may not always take the advice but she does listen. I'm not that big of an Egwene fan, others will be able to find more.
  10. Ogier all the way. Long life, on par with an Aes Sedai, and the possibility of some supernatural powers of my own. I also love nature, books, and history. And could learn to carry a massive axe around with me, Gardener style.
  11. I generally prefer highly character driven fiction to event driven, so I kinda pick Ice and Fire. But that doesn't mean I have any issues with WoT- it, by far, has some of the most epic moments to be found in fantasy today. Both are very good at what they try to do.
  12. Sympathy in The Kingkiller Chronicles is a pretty awesome system.
  13. At the end of the day the Seanchan are only human and, like humans, will change. Their culture has the potential for advancing and, perhaps, building something greater than what the current Westlands could become. The Dark One, on the other hand, is an entropic god-being that will always exist and has the ability to prevent any changes from within. The choice is pretty obvious; take the one that, in the long game, could actually grow into a modern society. So the Seanchan.
  14. I know, right? Its in their name and everything. But yeah. I agree. The Seanchan- very experienced and disciplined soldiers, its rather large, has channeling support, seems very good at adapting things which are used against them, etc. If I can't use the Seanchan, I'll just take Rand's vast legions. They're pretty much a more numerous, less united Seanchan. With, admittedly, a higher rate of badasses per capita it appears. If I can't take that... idk, the Band? Experienced, dragons in place of channelers, possibility of Asha'man support in the future via connections with Rand, etc.
  15. ...authors communicating through an interpreter, like the Seanchan High Blood? If I ever become a famous author I'm definitely doing that.
