  1. Debunking Superstitions by Tuon Paendrag
  2. It would've been more believable if Rand manages to make the three woman in love with him, but the three women hate each other's guts. I have known friends who had mistresses, never have I met a mistress and wife who did not try to tear each other's hair out.
  3. It's a white lie, a necessary one that Egwene couldn't get out of. You must remember she is young and to be honest I can empathize with her a bit on this. She did finally admit the truth to the Wise Ones when it was time for her to go so she never really wanted the deception to be viewed as the reality imo.
  4. I used to think that those criticizing the new "Mat" were just a vocal minority trying to nitpick Sanderson's writing, but on one family gathering where all my relatives are present we got to discussing WOT. I got an Uncle, an Aunt, one brother and three sisters that read WOT the same as I do. Turns out, all of them thought Mat was off for one reason or another. My uncle thought Mat tries too hard to be funny since TGS. My Aunt says Mat has lost his introspection, it used to be funny to see that what he thinks is very different from what he does. The rest of the brood basically
  5. LOL reading comprehension FTL. that's it the we've jumped the shark. let's just move on.
  6. so mat is called the leader of the band by some and the raven prince by others. he's both. just because chet says he's the leader of the band means all commoners think the same? wow that's fantastic logical leap right there. just because a noble does not know does not mean the commoners don't know? I don't understand your logic that nobles should know things first when in fact the band's people are telling their stories in Inns and with fellow mercenaries, logic follows that the commoners would know first before nobles. Guybon knows a lot of stories concerning mat from the commoners,
  7. oh really lets see: Thom was saying that very few people resent the seanchan rule. commoners that do resent it are mostly those who's had relatives collared and even Nathin a noble would not fight them, so not even all nobles are against the Seanchan. Thom has no proof that others would resent the seanchan, he is hoping they do, he cites Amadicia and Tarabon and yet we see alot of the seanchan armies are composed of Amadicians and Taraboners. Follow your own advice and start reading the book without blinders and stop taking things out of context maybe. As many

  11. I certainly hope not, perhaps this is the scenario that would cause Egwene to realize her flaws and grow. The AS and the whole of Randland needs a strong and able Amyrlin and nobody is better than Egwene at the moment. Hopefully she and Elayne can have an understanding regarding the influence the WT has on Andor and Cairhien.
  12. I see, so why don't they call Mat, the Leader of the Band then? The whole of Randland knows who the Seanchan are. Actually was rereading ToM and the very first person we see discuss the rumors... ToM "The End of a Legend" and then later... ToM The gaurdsmen got it wrong, while Birgitte doesn't know what it means and makes no connection to the Seanchan. If the General of Andor doesn't know the title then commoners most certainly do not. It is just another fantastical name to go along with the other rumors. I don't understand how those quotes equate to the peo
  13. wikipedia has a list of each book and a summary. also try http://www.tor.com/blogs/2009/02/wheel-of-time-re-read-index#EOTW
  14. Actually, I doubt that most of the da'covale resent their station. That's what they're used to and what they expect. Doesn't make it OK. When your lot in life is to serve the Blood in skimpy outfits and do whatever you're told with no freedom, and then be expected to commit suicide if your master dies, that's a sucky life. Whether you (meaning the da'covale) realize it or not. I agree. I certainly wouldn't want to be one.
  15. Death is lighter than a feather, Duty heavier than a mountain. It would seem this saying does not apply only to Malkieri. Perhaps they were loyal to the death? that is how I perceived it. High Lord Turak was a great man, second in line after Tuon. We see how much Selucia and Karede value their loyalty to Tuon, I am sure if Tuon dies, Selucia and all her property would commit suicide. When a shogun dies, all his samurai commit sepuku by tradition as a mark of great loyalty, maybe this is where RJ got the inspiration. We look at da'covale and property and think they MUST resent their
