  1. mess is another word for food/grub/etc. Such as a "mess hall" So it's basically saying "the trollocs don't have to worry about food supplies," which makes perfect sense in context.
  2. I didn't think burning out could be Healed, just stilling?
  3. Finished at 4:00 am. Main things I remember standing out: ~ How did Rand know that Callandor was a True Power sa'angrael? It just came up "Now that Rand knew..." I assume Moiraine knew, but I don't recall it actually saying... ~ Moiraine's first meeting with Rand was very "meh" to me. I really expected a lot more. I kept hoping all along her importance was going to be one of shock, such as in Terez' original theory from eons ago that she would basically show up to balefire Rand as he was being Turned. As for her 'purpose'... overall, it made me go "meh," since it ended up being a pur
  4. He fell in love with a pretty girl and became convinced he was the true Savior of the prophecies. Valan Luca!?! :)
  5. Or what if this memory of light takes place long after the Last Battle and it's just a scene of Rand & Tam hanging out? (I'm picturing the epilogue to Rocky III, with Apollo & Rocky facing off just for the hell of it)
  6. Can you provide citation for this? I don't disbelieve you, I'm just curious what all these documented mistakes are. I have plenty of my own issues with the last 2 books, but I don't recall seeing Team Jordan admitting to numerous mistakes... (again, just curious, not being argumentative)
  7. I feel like I should know what this is. I can't help but hope that this has something to do with some HILARIOUS Felix theory.
  8. Nothing unique here, pretty much all of Dumai's Wells, but particularly, with Rand crushing the last 3 knots on his shield and bursting out of the box.
  9. Nice! They don't have the buckle, but I think I will email and ask what would be involved in a custom project. Thanks!
  10. Though I don't know for certain that BS actually does this better than RJ, the major battle between Perrin & Slayer I thought was really awesome, and likely extremely different from how RJ would have done it. RJ wrote battle scenes from the POV of terror, as one who had been in war and lived through horrible times - BS wrote/writes battles scenes like someone who came of age when the Matrix came out. This isn't better or worse, but it was a really neat way to write that particular battle scene and I couldn't have seen RJ writing it that way. Annnnd, that's honestly as far as I can go
  11. Thanks Mashiara, I do appreciate the response, but as a follow-up, does anyone know of what specifically I was talking about? I really thought there was an "official" (or at least, "well-made") belt buckle of the dragon (possibly this symbol?: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091211023151/wot/images/0/01/Dragon-icon.svg ) This guy even mentions one: http://phweengee.tripod.com/wotstuff.htm but he doesn't seem to have a picture or a link for it.
  12. Is there licensed WoT merchandise? In particular, I seem to remember a few years ago there was an official or licensed Wheel of Time belt buckle that I saw around. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, not sure where else would be a good spot.
  13. So let's just all be honest here - how many of you will likely, upon receiving the copy of AMoL, skip straight to the end to read the last passage, the one Robert Jordan wrote, that some of us have been waiting 20+ years for? I don't know if I'm going to, but I have to admit, I can already, 3.5 months away, feel my willpower ebbing in that regard... Edit: Just clarifying - I'm specifically talking about the part that Robert Jordan wrote, that he said has been written for 20 years. Not the climactic battle or anything, but what is likely to be the epilogue. In case it wasn't clear. :)
  14. Your 3 points about the feel of the 3 released chapters are exactly how I feel about those scenes as well. Edit: Actually, I just agree with your whole post - Sanderson's got it hard with this gig.
