  1. Cadsuane judgemental ? I would like to discuss it with you , to understand how you can think that of a woman who sacrificed everything for more than an hundred years , if not all her life , in the pursuit and the safeguard of the Dragon Reborn , been quite litteraly the embodiment of a true Aes'Sedai of the third age , in order to save the world , is judgemental when she aproach Rand int he only proper manner. But before that I would like you to explain to me why do you think she was not the right person for the job, and who could have been better at it ?
  2. You mean how Ishmael hasn't corrupted everybody ? If you need example . The Black Ajah . There is no stable governement in Randland ,outside of tiny kindgom , as Ishmael as worked against each and everyone of those that rised . More than Half of the nobility In Randland is either a darkfriend or a greedy and corrupt bunch. Remember the first book and Ingtar word at the end of the second book : Of course when you are not the focus of a crazed forsaken backed up by the enbodiment of chaos and destruction , you tend to have a rather pleasant time .
  3. Most of what she said is usefull to Rand , and you forget easely how Moraine treated him , her approche his actually a good one , she don't try to cajole him or threathen him into doing what she want . In a way she is like Min, while she do what she does because he his the dragon reborn she don't treat him as the mythic figure he his . She keep him grounded , amongs other thing he needed to be reminded he was not the "Creator "; Yes, but I don't just think in terms of "merit" and "the right thing to do". A character's personality has to be likeable on top of that. and again, the
  4. Cadsuane is a Meta Aes Sedai , she was anoying at first but I saw the merit of what she did .
  5. Actually I must say I made a mistake , after rereading this passage I though she said she would enjoy it , I must have mixed her speaking about Myleen and that one . But anyway , I can't shake the feeling Tuon would enjoy the process of getting her hand arround Egwene , just like she enjoyed puting Joslyne ,Teslyn and Edesina , and that would put her on the same kind of woman as Semirhage . A woman who enjoy breaking other , subservienting their will to her own through a pain or a pleasure process . I speak about Tuon because even if she lie to Matt and probably to herself she know
  6. To be clear I am not condoning the practice, it's abhorrent. Nevertheless think its time for a reread on how they go about things because you seem a bit confused. Further it comes downto perspective. They are training something that is sub human and the vast majority take no pleasure on inflcting damage. The Semi comparisons do not fit. Semi think she is above human , and enjoy experimenting on other , through suffering or pleasure , she enjoy breaking them too . Tuon claim something simillar , can quote on this section of the forum tho .
  7. Sparker have the inate abilie , meaning at the age of 16 or 18 , depends if you are male or female , they start channeling without meaning or even being conscious about it . Many of those sparkers die because they can't control the side effect , the greatest strength of the seanchean is precisely that through the collar none of their sparker die . "learners" on the other hand cannot channel without being thaught , those are the Sul'dam . Eventually the Sul'dam learn to channel through their damane . As to your second question Tuon isn't arguing from a theorical point of view, she is arguing
  8. They have no intention of doing that , what they want is to conquer the land , Tuon doesn't believe in Trolloc or Myrdraal until she see one , and then it's more about pest control than anything else , she doesn't even apologise for Semirhage . Thanks to her prophecies perhaps , the Dragon must bow to her and then go on with a duel with the Do , that's what the fight against the shadow is to her .
  9. Finished reading the mage saga, don't know yet if the saga is over actually, by Jim Farris .
  10. Rand only had LTTs memories aside from that brief moment on DM. Haven't done a reread on AMoL yet. Did that change at SG? As I understood is last Pov he don't even have those memory anymore .
  11. If I may comment , the "electricity" that weaves the pattern is Saidin and Saidar , nothing else . The Do and the Creator are the conscious manifestation of forces that represent either evil or goodness but they do not drive in any way the pattern , they are part of it , not as conscious being but as the raw elementary force ,chaos , corruption and destruction for the Do and Order , virtue , creation and preservation for The Creator . I don't think the Do can touch or influence the world without bore , it is simply that the force he embodies are part of the wheel . You are right though,
  12. Why do you deny Egwene authority or status ? As much as Rand his the Savior , he is neither the only hero nor omniscient . Egwene treat him as is equal and he doe's the same they respect and value each other and Rand needed her as much as she needed him , in the end it is her who freed him from himself and in a way win the last battle . You have an argument when you speak about her tendency to demand allegiance from her subaltern , this is in a way above and beyond her station of Amyrlin , but in a time where the tower is split the last battle at your doorstep , with a madwoman in control of
  13. I really can't understand this vision of Egwene , it strike me as misogynistic in essence . Your interpretation of her opposition of Rand is based on you negating her title , position , knowledge , her many harsh trial and overall accomplishment . I dont understand that you dont understand. Even if I do like Egwene because I think all her flaws are a result of her life and, though they have no excuse, I have to forgive her, I agree with synchxts 100%. Egwene literally tells Lews Therin "she's been researching, reading old books kept in the Tower". WTF? Dude, you are speaking to the man

  15. what of Shemirhage? was´t she trying to get hold of Seanchan or did she just loll around as truthspeaker for the fun of it. And not Demandred unleash balefire ? a) we don´t know what he did in Shara , he maby killed several armies with it and second what did he do in the last battle , yes shouting balefire . and the last question : yes if you read the dark one wanted the pattern destroyed so he could remake it in his image - and the forsaken at least Demandred and Moridin was fine with it , and they were two of very few forsaken left . So you arguments dear sir is null and void. On anoth
