  1. ah yes I was also thinking of getting a WoT tattoo. I have no problem with tattoo's, currently I want to get something ridiculous that I will obviously regret, just as a conversation starter.for example: "hey why the hell would you tattoo 'F@** the police' across your chest?" "well, this one time, i was drunk and..." you see? a new friend already. On a WoT tattoo though i was thinking perhaps a small and simple three circles (the great serpent intertwined with the wheel) on my chest American history X style (but obviously without the racial hatred). Though i'd like a salvidor dali sketch on me too. The dragons i'd like but 1: too noticable and 2:too expensive
  2. Throw my computer out the window. I'd regret this soon after but oh well
  3. Yes! Hanninal is winning! As for who is on the list, I don't pretned to know much about the history of generals, I put Patton up as many people on other sites seemed to think he was worthy, just as Scipio is up because some people think because he beat Hannibal at Zama he is the better general. After some Wikipedia research i would put Napolean there instead of him(Scipio). I'm surprised Caesar hs no votes, I would have put him as the greatest Roman general, meaning he would definately be a contender...but maybe not in this poll of the greats!
  4. Sorry if this has been dicussed in a forum before but I couldn't find one so I said I'd make one. So who do you think is the best general?Alexander?Caesar? There are massive tactical changes due to gunpowder so you can give pre and post gun powder opinions if you want. I think my vote goes to Hannibal, if only because he's my favourite and because of the battle of Cannae.
  5. Well to the first question Aes Seadai who become damane still face the oaths,we see this with the damane who cannot lie,no matter how the seanchan punish her. I forget the name of the damane but its in a scene Surouth, on a boat. To travel you need to know whereyou ARE to travel, not where your going. That is how Nynaeve travelled, and everone else mentioned by you, however, short didtances can be travelled without knowing the land.
  6. But he did still think that he did, cloglord. Just to add another reason for the futility of this thread...we don't even know the strenths of the angreal they were using...or do we?i don't think we do?Well maybe Rands,it increased his channelin power a few times, it was the same one he used against rahvin (i think)
  7. In respects to the lanfear/rand strength; Rand thinks many times durin the battle that he could kill her easily by calling lightning or such. He seems to be sayin this with confidence so Rand (imo) seems to be more powerful in strentgh...
  8. Well, the way is see it is that: 1;mashadar killed Sammy. 2;The reasons for the death of sammy simply CANNOT be attributed to himself only. By the some of the reasoning in this thread, it is ok to say that if Rand had not existed, then sammy is still alive, so is at least partially rands fault. Or it could be attributed to Mordeth for being such an evil person. Who caused Sammy to go to Shador Logoth? Depends on what way you look at it. It was his plan to go to Shador Logoth.So it could be his Fault, but we could just as easily say that if Rand had not attacked he wouldn't have went so it was rand's doing. In my opinion, it is Rands fault Sammael is dead, but other factors also apply, like Sammael's bad luck, Moridin, Liah screaming.But it is wrong to say that no-body except Sammael can be held reponsible for his death.
  9. It was Morvin's warder, Jori, that you are thinking of Luckers. It is from Myrelle's PoV, "When last sounds," Kod. She thinks he is supposedly among the best of warders with a blade.
  10. someone in one of the other forums brought up how bel'al manouvered and defended against rand with such ease, and should be a contender. the gholam is the best fighter in my opinion, the only reason mat isn't toast is his medallion....other than that the best fighters are lan mat and rhuarc, but i believe mats memories give him the edge.
  11. well he's a slow reader so don't count on it any time soon,but if the topic has drifted off the forum i'll find it and bring it back to the top...
  12. yes there is much debate as to what narishma will follow after....but it is generally agreed that it is indeed narishma that the prophecy refers to,as he used callondor in the choedan kal scene,winters heart.
  13. it was my understanding that the portal stone worlds were off shoots of the whell,not exactly nescessary for existence....with only three constants,the creator,the dark one, and the fact that the dark one is currently trapped in all the them.that the portal stones were made to tap into these worlds.they came in handy,aftre all thats wher the seanchan animals came from. i think it betrays the whole nature of the wheel of time series if ther is no bore with every turn,if there is no TG with every turn,but thats just my opinion (and a few others) your free not to buy it...but as afore mentioned it seems to be the belief of pretty much every educated randlander that these incidents are recurring ones.
  14. best to worst: (in my opinion) 1; Lord of Chaos (that ending, magical) 2; Fires of heaven (so much action) 3; The Shadow Rising (loved it) 4; The Great Hunt 5; The Dragon Reborn 6; The Eye of the World 7; Knife of Dreams (gives me hope for aMoL) 8; A Crown of Swords 9; A path of daggers 10; Winter's heart (loved with the choedan kal though) 11; To quote robert; "Bloody Crossroads of Flaming Twilight *snore*". such a boring book. CoT was the only book i actually didn't like.
  15. The end of lord of chaoas is probably my favourite part in the whole series, won't say anything to spoil it though! The end of the first six books I loved, the end to the rest of them to a lesser extent, and i loved practically all the bits between, you couldn't read these books if you didn't.
  16. It does not say that the tower must be one, you are just interperting that it said that, but one of the recurring thoughts in this series is that prophecy should never be taken at face value, and that it is hard to truly get its meaning. It could be steady to show the difference the attack will make, or the advanced level of "unsteadiness" that will ensue after that attack. The fact is we can't state for sure what it means, we can only speculate. (and the raven is the sign generally used to represent the seanchan so...)
  17. you seem to be missing that osan'ga/dashiva is dead.he was killed in WH in the cleansing scene. yes many of the forsaken turned due to hatred and envy,but i believe mazrim was a darkriend before ever the forsaken were free,(well except for ishy obvioulsy).
  18. found what I believe is some new info.....apparently RJ did indeed state that callondor was made during the war of power (a book signing).the flaw was due to "the effect of the war on manufacturing standards" and was discovered when they used Callandor during the War of the Power (Robert Jordan at a booksigning). http://www.wotmania.com/faqtopic.asp?ID=136 sorry if this has been brought up before and discarded but i thought that it warranted a mention,as it could sort a lot of confusion out.
  19. i used to love these book till i was about 13....then i got the new book,read it,and lo it was exactly the same as all the other books,with new characters.then isasid i'd read the other new one,just to see,and it was again the same.great,books,but at this stage i could nearly write one
  20. i knew moraine wasn't dead when rand said something like "moraines dead" (i don't have the book on me so sorry bout the vagueness) and one of the wise ones replies "you are a fool rand,about this and other things".that shouted at me that moraine wasn't finished. i didn't have a clue who killed asmo at first,my first loony thought was maybe ishmael had been recycled,as i just knew he wasn't finished,then i came to search WoT on the web and realised it couldn't have been him. i have looked thouroughly at all the arguments for the killer objectively, and decided that graendal is the prime suspect.
  21. i was wrong in this instance,see bob,others can admit they're wrong without people arguing pointlessly for pages with you. you should try it some time,it might help you get on better with people.
  22. i once read a theory (don't know if its been posted here)that suggested maybe the creator had let time flow,until he was happy with the current state of evouloution,then made the wheel,this would fix the problem of creation life evoulotion etc..
  23. well first off rands first power acquisition fever occured in baerlon in his ecounter with the children of light. warder bonds do indeed tell in which direction the bonded is,we see this through out the books.the further away the person is the vaguer the direction gets,we see this when elayne comments on how rand is jumping bout all day (not sure wich book),how he is in the east then the west etc. as to the thom/domon case you don't rememver everyone you see,and domon did give a look which hinted he might have recalled the gleeman,there is debate about it. and weren't the trollocs asleep when perrin and the others killed them?when they all got killed slayer had directed the trollocs to an ambush.
  24. was away for a few days there but it seems others have taken up the fight for me...thanks!bob your resoning in this case is so flawed on so many different levels.you use logic which would imply that asmo got killed by his reflection,because,by your logic,everyone has an aliby.but could you at least admit you are wrong when you are?the rest of us do it,its not that hard. and in respects to your last post directed towards me you should read my previous post,repeatedly as you can't seem to get posts the first time round. jordan has indeed stated that he his flummoxed by the amount of wrong assumptions in the asmo case,we now know why as we listen to your reaoning,and,correct me if i'm wrong,but hasn't jordan stated somewhere that a 3rd of the guesses with asmo are correct?assuming that dragonmount member are more informed than average readers,this would go well with our poll.but then obviously there are not so well informed dragonmounters here. and yes,its greandal :D
