  1. Impossible. Rand may think it'd be the best sollution, but if the DO could be killed (or wasn't somehow necessary) the creator wouldn't have just locked him away outside the pattern. This either means the DO is equal to the creator, in which case I doubt Rand will ever have the power to kill him, as Rand himself isn't even close to the power the creator must have posessed when he created the world/universe, or, the DO is necessary, which would eventually mean the end of everything if the DO ever got killed, since I don't think the creator implemented a plan B (linear time) in case his plan
  2. Don't worry, we'll get another chance to panic in about 400 years from now. :) http://2012quest.com/mayan-calendar/new-research-shows-mayan-calendar-ends/
  3. @mbeuhner Mat's situation does raise an interesting question which I should have asked in my last post. I'm not even going to bother trying to deny your source, as I'm pretty sure a 18th century noble knows more about English/common law than I do, but I'm going to assume the linked chapter & the quoted apply to common people. Since you know which sources to check, I'm going to ask you if you can find something relating to princesses. Does a princess that marries a foreign prince/king still owe allegiance to her father? It'd be rather silly considering the fact that they might end
  4. Because they didn't have citizens & nationalities like they do right now in the 17th and first half of the 18th century either & the people in the 3rd age WOT universe don't have the technology to implement something like that or to check it. Also, I'm not sure it's supposed to be similar to the 17th and 18th century, more like the 15th and 16th century. Guns are just being invented, people don't sail around the world yet (besides the Seanchan & Atha'an Miere, but the last don't build colonies & don't intend to conquer), Kings and queens still rely on nobles actually govern
  5. I find this quote intriguing. I have always been uneasy with the idea that the Dark One's influence is a definitive aspect of any Age on the Wheel. The Dark One is outside the Pattern, opposed to it, seeking it's destruction. The Wheel will of course respond and attempt to adapt to any of the Dark One's incursions, that's part of its design. However, I can't help but prefer the idea that the Pattern the Wheel is trying to weave doesn't require the Dark One at all, and in fact, isn't intended to include him. The Dark One may only have a window during Ages in which the manipulation of the Patter
  6. A piece of advice. Write your theory on notepad, wordpad, Mircosoft Word or whatever offline program you have at your disposal. Save your theory, then copy the text & paste it here on this board. It'll limit the time you'll have to spend online & even if your browser fails, all you have to do is try to paste it again.
  7. This thread makes no sense at all >.<. The OP uses the modern concept of citizenship in a medieval/renaissance world. Even though citizenship existed, it cannot be compared to modern citizenship. 1. Citizenship only applied to people living in a city (bourgeoisie (French and can be translated into english as middle class) or bürger (German and is translated into citizen))
  8. Nice Tylee discussion, but we don't even know what Perrin is being helped with. As far as we know someone might have decided to help Perrin with his tent, even though Perrin believes he can do it by himself or with the people already helping him, while at the same time others in Perrin's camp could use the person's help a lot more. If this is the case, it might be any female or even any non-human male character (I can only think of Loial, trollocs and animals though & I doubt trollocs and animals will tell Perrin they're fond of him)
  9. I don't think the damane issue will be resolved by the end of aMoL. I do believe that the Seanchan will stop trying to leash the marath-damane in Randland after a failed 2nd attack on the WT. Mat will probably try to convince Tuon that they have enough damane to defend themselves against any possible attack from the marath-damane. I might also be persuaded to believe that the Aiel damane are freed, if someone could give me a decent scenario, cause my own scenarios are crappy at best and would be rather illogical. The reason I believe the wise ones might be an exception has to do wi
  10. I can see something like you just wrote happening, in one of the outriggers, but not in aMoL. The same applies to Tuon suddenly having a change of heart about channelers. I can accept that she'll let the channelers not within her territory uncollared after the second attack on the WT (which I believe will end in a big failure, at least according to Tuon), but she'd also forbid them from entering her country. Those channelers who are already collared will stay collared, probably for the rest of their lives. It's like slavery in real life. Trans-Atlantic slave trade has been banned in the US
  11. Does it really matter if Berelain is one of Hawkwing's descendants or not? If she made a claim for the throne, no matter if her claim was true or not, or even if she tried to raise her own position within the Seanchan Empire too fast, she'd simply end up dead. She'd be seen as competition & the blood have ways of dealing with potential dangers. Tuon herself killed her own siblings because they were a threat, so I really don't think she'd allow another to become a real threat to her position. Keep in mind that Tyrn sur Paendrag Mashera was the son of Laiwynde & that Laiwynde was
  12. Probably Rand. I don't think we'll get a POV from one of the 3 Asha'man that are currently with Ituralde & we know Rodel himself hasn't used anything that nobody else should know about. I've checked the list of ter'angreal on the wiki, but none of them seem to be particularly useful or Rand has never been close to them & cannot possibly posess them. The sa'angreal used by men (that we know of) are difficult to hide or inaccessible without the proper ter'angreal. Which leaves us with an angreal or the previously mentioned dagger. Aviendha found out about the dagger in KoD &am
  13. There's returning to the light & there's 'returning to the light'. The first option means you actually try to redeem yourself, while the 2nd option means you've abandoned/betrayed the DO. The 1st option seems nearly impossible to me, but the 2nd option might be possible (very unlikely, but still) if Cyndane manages to acquire her cour'souva box thingy. Here's how it'd go (please keep in mind that I'm not RJ or BS & that my writing skills are crappy at best): Moridin: Soon it'll all end. Cyndane: Yeah yeah, soon you'll rule the newly created world. Moridin:
  14. I too believe that the world will be destroyed, but I don't think it'll involve a free DO. The destruction of the world is just a small part of the pattern & thus of the wheel. The wheel & pattern never really end, but just like a human life ends, so could the world's life. The soul will be reborn in a new body, just like a human soul. It will probably require some cataclysmic event, but with technology already being reinvented at the end of the age we know as the 3rd age, it's not too far fetched to assume that by the end of the 6th age people actually might have the technology to
