  1. "Into the heart he thrusts his sword, into the heart, to hold their hearts. Who draws it out shall follow after. What hand can grasp that fearful blade?" Rand sends Narishma to get Callandor which Prophecies of the Dragon give the above quote about whoever draws out the sword. 'Who draws it out shall follow after' I know some people feel that that this line means Narishama will be loyal to Rand. It seems to me this should refer to more... but I do not recall anything in the series it could mean. Thoughts?
  2. I agree about Nynaeve. The series would have had a good bookend with her watching Rand leave.
  3. Bela's death. She was the only one I was really sad over.
  4. I agree that the whole Rand/Mat reunion was wierd. They simply acted odd towards one another and it did not fit in with the relationship they had previously established.
  5. There are no current plans for spinoffs or prequels. There is a plan for a new Wheel of Time encyclopedia.
  6. I would do a re-read before reading AMOL. You will get a lot more out of the books the second time through and will see lots of foreshadowing. The last book will also fit in context more and you will see things you would otherwise miss.
  7. Memory of LIght doesn't have the help of movies or a TV show to help hype it up.
  8. I believe he was last seen when Mat left him. I hope he shows up in the final book.
  9. We discussed this in the link below: www.dragonmount.com/forums/topic/72791-importance-of-nynaeve-and-egwene/
  10. I believe the person that sent it was a darkfriend.
  11. There are so many plot lines that you would consider unnecessary. So many that could be removed from the books and the books shrunk. But the depth of the series is what makes it different from most other series. There is so much context for what is going on in the world and yes many of the plots do not have a ton of influence on the main story. I find it interesting to trace these from start to finish and see the affects they do have.
  12. After waiting for all the Wheel of Time books I have a hard time getting involved with a series early on. I did enjoy Way of Kings.
  13. Everyone that is on Dragonmount (or at least most people here) are very passionate about the Wheel of Time series. Many of us have been reading the series for a very long time and it has become a part of our lives. Everyone wants to see the ending done right. Many critisms were made of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books after Lord of Choas and there are good things written about them too. There are many bad and good things written about Brandon's Wheel of Time books. When everyone is passionate it is going to create sparks. I think it is important to remember we are all here because
  14. Moiraine knows what happened. She seems to have known a great deal about.. everything. I do not think Elyane knows. I do think she knows about Galladrian.
  15. I just don't see him staying in Randland. Perhaps there is a portal world where he will go to relax if he survives. Randland is going to be in bad shape after the last battle and I don't think he will be around to hold it together. I don't think it would be a good ending if Rand has to fight the rest of his life.
  16. I agress that the puzzlement from the Maidens and their questions was great.
  17. She has been through so many different 'future' reading type devices that it is hard to know what she does know. She knows all of the phophecies and I suspect that is where her excitment comes from. I too find myself wondering what 'gifts' she received.
  18. Wow, this is a great theory Mik! Well thought out and summed up.
  19. I've never understood the level of Egwene hate. She has her annoying habits (as do many of the characters) but that is what makes them feel more real. I think she is great when she stands up to Elaida and in fighting off the Seanchan. These are her best scenes in my opinion.
