  1. Now I'm imagining Yoda as an Aes Sedai; "Weaves as it will, the wheel will"
  2. Maybe its all about precision over strength; you wouldn't use a sledgehammer to tap in a nail.
  3. thanx is he a memory? (such as Rands trip through the pillars at Rhuidean or out of Mats head)
  4. I agree that their new role is a recruitment officers, but the suggestion that they could also deal with rogue channelers is a really good one; more a broadening of their original role than a completely different one.
  5. Not so much livestock as hunting hounds. I believe killing a Suldam will also kill the Damane; this was in TGH. I wonder how much affection for damane comes from the affinity that women chanellers can feel towards eachother?
  6. Could a power-forged blade be compared with a lightsaber?
  7. So, does the losing team put on white and become gaishain afterwards?
  8. Cairhien is definately french, even the description of the accent has a hint of French. I would say Saldaea could be the Mongols, light horsemen, fierce fighters, etc. Amadacia is Stuart England around the redtoration; ruled by Puritans, but the royalty and nobility love to party. Tear I'm not sure of, Spain sounds right but I can see hints of the ottoman empire in there as well; the privilages of the rich, the fine horse stock. The Sea Folk may be Pacific Islanders, the colouring and hair seem right and the Islanders were probably the best mariners for years. Seanchan is almost definately Fuedal Japanese, the aggressive expansionism, honour and ritual suicide, the fact the empress seems to be regarded a a diety, rigid class structure and the ninjas, I mean bloodknives.
  9. I am so tempted to say "Is he smaller than a bread box?", but I'm not Is he young (under 25)?
  10. Altara and Ebou Dar could be based of post-renaissance Italy, a collection of city-states, the love of duelling, the buildings in the Rahad falling into disrepair like many of the buildings in Rome. I don't know much about the Apache culture, but I can definately see the Zulu, beduin and even possibly Masai cultures in the Aiel. Instead of japanese for the inspiration of Aiel Honour we should look at the Chinese instead. This would also explain the different warrior societies (there were many different schools of martial arts, all of whom guarded its secrets). No arguments that Andor is Tudor England; the Two Rivers is either Medieval England or possibly Wales. I believe Sheinar is based on the Japanese, they have as much honour as the Aiel, are a warrior culture but are more rigid than the Aiel. There is a definate caste system in Shienar that the Aiel do not have. Everyone knows their place and their duty.
  11. I go for most genres except dance, r&b and bubblegum pop. I tend to judge songs on their lyrics rather than artist or genre. At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Nightwish and getting into a few Billy Idol songs.
  12. If I was wolfbrother my name would be Sunthorn, or as the wolves would put it "Cloudless dry summer afternoon, the suns heat gently pricking the skin like tiny thorns, just before the cool evening breeze blows"
  13. What email address are you using?
  14. I've seen biggest jerk, most tortured soul, grearest villain, now it's time to tell us who your favorite characters are and why. Dexter Morgan; dude kicks butt. Has a disturbing sence of humour (like me), a brilliant if cynical view on society and people, and in many ways is someone people can connect with on a level they're not comfortable with. Who are your choices
  15. Birgitte for me, don't usually go for blondes but shes sexy, likes to dress to attract eyes and swears almost as much as I do. On the negtive side is shes got a terrible aim (if youre on the recieving end) so you can't forget birthdays and anniversaries, and given her taste, it would be rather insulting if she was attracted to me. And Aludra, bet shes a real firecracker (hehehe)
  16. I'd change them to elementalist, seer, biomancer and illusionist. A biomancer is one who can minipulate life energy. As for the magic system; simple is best. Those who can learn magic must study to gain the knowledge to manipulate their field of magic. Its your choice whether only certain people have the ability inborn or if magic is something anyone can do with the right ritual
  17. no problem. If you wanna run any more ideas past me just go for it
  18. Just read Hate List by Jennifer Brown for my Book Club. Wasn't sure I'd enjoy it as its aimed towards young adults and deals with the aftermath of a school shooting. I did enjoy it though, and I'd recommend it, but its not really a light read. Also re-read Good Omens. Still funny as heck. Trying to read Game of Thrones, but its not really holding my interest well. Next up is re-reading all Jeff Lindseys "Dexter" novels
  19. The Shadow Guild have infiltrated the 4 great guilds and slowly subverting or sabotaging them, aiming them at the other guilds to weaken them for their Imperial master. The Religious Guild is almost in the pockets of the Tulians, lured by the promise of becoming the official Imperial Church; and the extra power it gives them.
  20. hmmm, not sure. I'm willing to help out, you can bounce some ideas off me
  21. Whats a co-writer do? I may be able to help there
